Fist Club is a queer pro wrestling gang formed by drag artists Rocky Rhodes & Rich Tea (aka Big Dick Energy) & Heather Bandenburg (creator of I Need to Cher & Wrestival). They met through the now disbanded women/NB promotion Burning Hearts, all seeking a space that embraced hard femme & queer identities within wrestling. Finding themselves slap bang in the middle of the venn diagram containing indie wrestling, drag & Mick Foley gifs, they decided to create Fist Club as the joyful, off-the-wall wrestling night they’d always wanted to attend.
Rhodes, Tea and Bandenburg are joined onstage by drag king host Loose Willis (Pecs), ring girl extraordinaire Tizzy Von Tassel (Good Time Gals) and a spectacular cast of wrestlers including Rhia O’Reilly, Cassius, Ronnie Knocks, Livvii Grace, Lou Sa Soul, Gambit, Sass Central, Skye O. Shure & many more.
