AIW Presents This Is Now 

7 p.m. Sunday March 26, $8 ADV/$10 DOS (all ages). Peabody's, 2083 E. 21st St., 216-776-9999.

You know how live music is always a little better at a club show, where it's right in your face? And how you really just have to see hockey live, from the good seats, to really get it? Now add some blood and sweat to the equation, and there you have the appeal of small-venue pro wrestling. At this month's Absolute Intense Wrestling production, the Sweet Dude Club and Revolation 13 (pictured) meet in a street fight. (Read: The match will be a crimson mess, and the rule book, which is usually strictly enforced by professional referees, goes out the window.) Other talent includes Ring of Honor star Claudio Castagnoli vs. Jay Violence. And they don't call him Jay Violence because he's a finesse grappler.
