Greetings, Students! Your esteemed faculty has just returned from an inspirational retreat, exploring the creative limits of the interactive genre.
We have long been united by our love for dinner attractions – the more challenging and unusual, the better. So when word reached us of a new local dining experience we were soon on the phone, making plans to attend. Accustomed to horse shows, period revues, exotic displays and – all too often – a mediocre meal with show to match, our curiosity was definitely piqued when we read about Central Florida’s latest spectacular:
Central Florida is home to theme parks, beaches, and all kinds of shows, but there’s an effort to combine food with professional wrestling.
Professional wrestler Bryan Smith owns the Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater.
“It’s theater and I know people will say professional wrestling, that’s a sport. Yes, it is, but Manor is putting sports and theater together,” Smith said.
Smith is putting on shows at Osceola Heritage Park, but there’s a new twist.
Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater is currently campaigning on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to raise $150,000. The plan is to lease a site in Kissimmee to take the small wrestling dinner shows to the next level.
I spoke with Bryan Smith, who’s spearheading the campaign and is the founder and owner of Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater. He’s a 34-year-old wrestler who’s put on seven shows for Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater, which sold out 150 tickets for its next event Dec. 27 at Osceola Heritage Park.

Pro Wrestling Dinner Theater in Kissimmee has redefined the notion of food fights in Central Florida. Developed by Bryan Smith, a professional wrestler, the shows are performed in a ballroom at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee. With a campy slap of comedy, some serious body slamming and an all-you-can-eat buffet, the show is playing to sold out crowds willing to fork over $89 per ticket for an evening of tongue-in-cheek confrontation.
We have had horses and knights, gladiators and gangsters, pirates and murder mysteries and even a big Italian wedding.
Now the latest dinner show to hit Central Florida, and Osceola County, involves some Spandex and a burning desire to be the lord of the ring.
Professional wrestling with a thematic story and pizza has arrived at Osceola Heritage Park.
The new dinner theater attraction, Manor Professional Wrestling Dinner Theater, had its debut recently, and after two dinner shows, could become a regular attraction at the home of the Silver Spurs Arena, said Jason Refermat, marketing manager for Osceola Heritage Park.
Simon Sez, a professional wrestler, talked with WESH 2's Jason Guy and Stewart Moore about the growing scene for wrestling dinner theater in Orlando.
A wrestling ring isn’t the first thing you would expect to see when you take your family out for dinner.
At Manor Professional Wrestling –located just outside of Orlando- you can expect the unexpected to be served alongside your dinner and this includes several wrestling matches.
Don’t write off the idea of watching these wrestlers square off while you enjoy dinner with friends and family.

I literally had no clue what I was walking into. A friend brought me here. All I can say is WOW, I went hoarse from screaming at the opening fight because I felt compelled to. I have never been to a wrestling show, nor have I watched wrestling, but this was super fun. The food was amazing and didn't distract from the show. The wrestling was very entertaining. I didn't know there would be female wrestlers and I loved them. Would definitely come back time and time again.
Luke Russell, 12, of St. John’s, Newfoundland, is transfixed. His parents bought him tickets for the wrestling dinner theater when they knew they were coming to Orlando for Wrestlemania, the biggest event of the professional wrestling world, held the same weekend in April.
Are you going to be visiting Florida anytime soon? Will you be staying in our Regal Oaks resort or Encantada resort? Then, we have some recommendations for some fun things to explore in Kissimmee. There are an abundance of fun Kissimmee activities and we want to share some of our favorites with you.
Sometimes a restaurant is just a restaurant, and sometimes it’s an experience. In the Maldives, you can dine beneath the waves at the glass-enclosed Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, located 16 feet below sea level. In Brussels, you can enjoy a chef-prepared “dinner in the sky” while seated at a table suspended 165 feet above the ground. There’s a toilet-themed restaurant in Taipei and a Paris restaurant where the menu is apple-themed.
