Newly launched local pro wrestling promotion Party Hard Wrestling held its inaugural event, Animal House, on Friday, September 9, at the Nile Theater in Mesa. It was an insane affair involving steel chairs, crazy matches, and memorable characters. It was also insanely fun, which is one of the goals of Party Hard Wrestling’s promoters. A total of eight contests took place, including several matches in PHW’s “Champion of the Multiverse” tournament and a wild tag team battle involving wrestlers punching each other out over beers. Party hard, indeed.
