NYC Unicycle Festival 2013

Everyone knows that, at the height of their powers, Hulk Hogan wasn’t half the wrestler that the late, great “Macho Man” Randy Savage was. (And don’t even give me any of that WrestleMania V, “the Mega Powers explode!” nonsense. There’s no sane world in which Savage would really be pinned after a simple leg drop.) Unfortunately, due to his untimely death in 2011, we’ll never know which of the two WWE legends would’ve been the better man at unicycle wrestling.


This unanswerable, heretofore-unasked question didn’t stop hordes of single-wheel enthusiasts from descending on Governors Island for the 2013 NYC Unicycle Festival to not just uni-grapple, but also race, play basketball, and freestyle on unicycles of all shapes and sizes. As of this writing, no circus-bear maulings have been reported.
