CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Midget wrestling is set to return to Joe Riley Park Thursday night.

Organizers say the match, the first since 2009, will feature Puppet and Smallz who will face off against one another in the squared circle at Riley Park. Both wrestlers are featured on the Half Pint Brawlers' show on the Spike Network.

"We're always excited to have wrestling return to The Joe, and that the card features the small guys makes it twice as big," says RiverDogs GM Dave Echols. "Over the years, we've received great feedback from our fans about wrestling. And for some reason, they like the small guys. We're glad that we're able to make it happen again, and sincerely thank MINI of Charleston for sponsoring it."

The match is set to follow the Charleston RiverDogs' 7:05 p.m. game against the West Virginia Power on April 19.

Both wrestlers will appear on the field at some point between innings to help fans decide who they want to win the bout.
