For the second episode of A Day in the Life, Char and I were trained to be professional wrestlers by Traditional Championship Wrestling star, “All That” Alan Steel.
We traveled to Little Rock, Arkansas and were part of their SummerClash event at the Clear Channel Metroplex. We spent the day with Alan Steel learning how to do what they do, we interviewed many of the wrestlers, and then we took to the ring ourselves! That’s right… Char and I went toe to toe in a mixed wrestling match you’ve got to see to believe!
In spite of Char and I participating in a mixed gender wrestling match, it is important to note that the late Andy Kaufman still holds the World Intergender Wrestling Champion title.
Lynne Margulies, who was Andy Kaufman’s girlfriend and who also produced the classic I’m From Hollywood documentary on Kaufman’s wrestling career, joins The Traveling Twosome in this episode of A Day in the Life for a conversation on Andy Kaufman. The episode also contains new footage of Andy Kaufman from his wrestling days! Lynne Margulies has just published a hilarious book of letters (more like hate mail) written to Andy Kaufman during this time spent taunting women around the nation and challenging them to a match – you’ll also get a sneak peak at this book!
UPDATE *** Feb 2014 *** We have recently released a new eBook with tons of pics and narratives about our wrestling experiences during and after this TV show. Check it out here!
