ALLSTAR WRESTLING LEGENDS
7:30 p.m., Barton Coliseum. $17.50-$32.50.

Oh, nostalgia, what a wily temptress you are! There’s no way that the memory I have of “Birdman” Koko B. Ware, the ’80s WWF hero who often had rainbow-colored hair and whose pet Macaw “Frankie” stayed perched on the ring during matches, matches the “Birdman” Koko B. Ware of today. (Really: Frankie’s dead and Birdman’s 50). But I can’t help really wanting to go anyway — even if only to see golden era wrestlers approaching AARP eligibility. Also on the card: Kamala (“The Mississippi Mauler”); Abdullah the Butcher, who’s 70 (!) and spends most of his time running Abdullah the Butcher’s House of Ribs and Chinese Food in Atlanta; Jimmy “The Mouth of the South” Hart, who formed and sang in the Memphis pop-band the Gentrys; 6’9” West Memphis native Sid Vicious, who began his career as the masked wrestler Lord Humongous; and more contemporary brawlers, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash, late of the nWo. A portion of the proceeds goes to benefit Big Brothers of Little Rock.
