Eric Bischoff had a midget wrestling show on Spike that got canceled, and many fans miss Half-Pint Brawlers. Now, Warner Bros. Discovery, which has been home to All Elite Wrestling for five years, is now adding another wrestling show called Big Little Brawlers.
The new reality series follows the Micro Wrestling Federation as they set up in Pigeon Forge, TN. The stars include Pinky Shortcake, Syko, Ivar the Micro, Lil’ Show, and Hot Rod. This is interesting, because it seems to be similar to the Half-Pint Brawlers premise.
The show depicts the Micro Wrestling Federation’s internal dramas and challenges as they work together for ‘MicroFest,’ the biggest micro wrestling event. Despite facing ego, injuries, and societal limitations, the little people athletes strive to achieve their piece of the American Dream.
The announcement of Big Little Brawlers coincides with AEW seeking a new television rights deal with WBD. There’s speculation about WWE being in talks with Warner for Raw TV rights. If Raw moves to TNT or TBS, Discovery could be potential landing spot for AEW.
We will have to see how this show pans out. It is certainly interesting, and it’s going down at an interesting time. It was previously reported that AEW may go to Discovery, but now they already have a pro wrestling show.
You may check out the new video for Big Little Brawlers below. Only time will tell how it affects Tony Khan’s current contract talks.
