THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS FU-MANCHU MEETS THE WORLD’S LARGEST FU-MANCHU
TNA Wrestling confirmed today that it is attempting to break the existing Guinness World Record for Largest Gathering of People With Mustaches at the Hogan Fu-Fest, set for this Friday, February 26.
Hogan Fu-Fest will be held from 2-4 p.m. CT at Mike Shannon’s Steak and Seafood (620 Market Street) in downtown St. Louis, minutes away from the Gateway Arch – which truly is symbolic of the world’s largest fu. TNA’s attempt to break the Guinness World Record is sponsored by Doc’s Harley-Davidson of St. Louis, and endorsed by the St. Louis-based American Mustache Institute (AMI).
AMI Chairman Dr. Aaron Perlut will be present to honor and recognize the golden whiskers of the pop icon, Hulk Hogan.
“We have been in contact with officials at the London headquarters of Guinness World Records, and know TNA fans and Hulkamaniacs will turn out to the Hogan Fu-Fest to shatter the existing Guinness record,” said TNA President Dixie Carter. “We need everyone with a mustache, especially a fu, to show up at Shannon’s in St. Louis this upcoming Friday afternoon.”
TNA Wrestling is holding Hogan Fu-Fest in St. Louis on the same day that tickets go on sale for TNA Lockdown 2010, the pay-per-view extravaganza set for Sunday night, April 18, at the Family Arena in suburban St. Charles, Mo.
