CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – No matter their size, one group of professional midget wrestlers bring the pain.

The Half Pint Brawlers are a midget performance wrestling troupe headed by “Puppet,” a fighter who argues that they’re just as tough as any regular-sized WWF star.

In fact, he thinks his guys have an even higher threshold for pain because they “fall further” during ladder stunts due to their small stature.

Puppet and his crew are out to prove that midget wrestlers are “athletes, not clowns,” and can hang with the best of them.

They’ve fought in an eight-foot steel cage, been thrown through tables, and battled using loaded staple guns, Puppet’s personal “gimmick.”

He likes to “take it to the tongue,” which has left him with several slits and scars.

The troupe’s crazy antics are chronicled in Half Pint Brawlers, a new series premiering June 2 on Spike that Puppet likens to “Jackass meets Little People Big World, with beer.”
