Gwar’s Oderus Says Wrestling is Fixed

Oderus Urungus is pleased to report that he was victorious in his first public wrestling match. The lead singer of self-called intergalactic scumdog metal band Gwar recently fought IWA East Coast Wrestling pro Tracy Smothers at Charleston, W.V.’s Schoenbaum Amphitheater. Not surprisingly, the mouthy Urungus — real name Dave Brockie – wants the world to know that he thoroughly trounced the competition.

“Tracy thought he was going to be wrestling a rubber monster and kept insisting he was going to win. I ignored him and choked him out. He went down. He left, disgraced,” boasts the equally larger-than-life Brockie. Along with his Gwar bandmates, Brockie celebrates 25 years of wreaking metal mayhem this year. The be-masked musicians are scheduled to release their eleventh album, ‘Lust In Space,’ on Metal Blade Records August 18.

“We went at it,” continues Brockie. “Tracy’s a wonderful guy, he’s professional. Oderus just went in there. He doesn’t know anything about wrestling, but he sure knows about beating people up.”

The fight, billed as the ‘Loser Leaves Earth’ match, was the, um, intergalactic warlord’s first such performance. Blood, guts, and violence are nothing new to Brockie’s gory repertoire. A Gwar performance isn’t for the faint-hearted. “Yeah, there’s blood, people’s heads are getting kicked in, there’s giant dinosaurs having knives rammed through their skull,” scoffs Brockie. “But, s—, you can see all that on television.”

Despite that, the match “was quite surreal,” he says. Still, the 45-year-old Canadian, who grew up in Washington, DC, rose to the occasion. Or did he?

“I hate to break it to people. But all that wrestling stuff is completely fixed. Sorry, I didn’t mean to spoil anyone’s lives,” he mocks. “But it was a pretty good experience and I’m sure we’ll do it again.”
