We aren’t sure who Michelle Falsetta is or what her deal is exactly, but we do know that she is the host of a weird but intriguing Wrestling Party. She promises “hot ladies” will be wrestling each other on mats at a state-of-the-art studio and will show off their favorite submissions, techniques, and “other holds.” The part that really freaks us out is that these semi-professional female wrestlers are free to wrestle you. Of course, you have to pay $50 per battle, which allows you to wrestle the woman of your choice for up to 15 minutes. On the party’s website, Falsetta explains that hygiene is crucial to this experiment: “Men, all us girls know that you love our scent when we are sweating . . . however, if you are smelling a bit funky and have dirty hands and feet, each individual girl has the option to refuse a session with you.” There are bathrooms available to wash up between matches. Yikes!
