A Burningman inspired tag team in Arizona Championship Wrest5kubg - the Soul Burners

Post by ^Rhino! » Fri Apr 17, 2020 9:57 pm

he strange world of professional wrestling has a new and fairly competent tag team in Arizona called the Soul Burners. Consisting of Ryan Taylor and (get this name) Tomaste, pronounced like the Buddhist 'namaste', this duo captured the unified heavyweight champion tag team title last year with their devastating signature finishing move, the 'burning man'. Basically it's a frog splash cover launched from the top of your partner's shoulders.
The tie-in to Burningman the event is unmistakable to a Burningman event attendee. For those of you with an interest, here's the announcement page:

There's a good pic of Tomaste there. Matches are held and televised from the Nile theater in Tempe. In a way, it makes me happy, because if the 'mainstream' is having fun demeaning Burningman the event, that means that we're not going to be mainstream and remain countercultural in one way.
