Glass shatters as pro wrestler Matt Tremont lands on an opponent during a "death match" held in June 2014 by the IWA Mid-South promotion. No one, of course, actually dies in these predetermined matches, but there is plenty of blood as the performers beat each other with various weapons. "It looks worse than it actually is. ... They know how to fall and get cut in a way that produces the most visual effect," photographer Marc McAndrews said.
At many of these small, independent shows, there are also more traditional pro-wrestling matches. This show was in New Albany, Indiana, in June 2014.
Audience members watch the action during the IWA Mid-South show in New Albany. McAndrews said many wrestling fans travel to follow these events.
