Gender reveals have quickly become one of the main events ahead the birth of a baby for some people. The premise is simple. A prop, most commonly a cake or a confetti popper—though sometimes even a plane or an entire building—unveils its pink or blue contents to give away the gender of a child. Sometimes it’s just for  the parents-to-be; other times the audience includes extended family and friends. As such, expecting couples have gotten increasingly creative with their gender reveals. For one couple, Grace Smith and Brandon Schoen, announcing the gender of their second baby included a backyard wrestling match.

The fight featured social media stars John Ferguson and Jimbo Hawkins in a blue traditional wrestling singlet and a pair of pink shorts, respectively. Hawkins also sported some pink dye in his hair and beard. The difference in complexions seems to tilt the scale. While Hawkins is tall and broad, Ferguson is a man with dwarfism. Still, like in many entertaining wrestling matches, they rely on wild props and stunts, including glass bottles and hitting each other with a chair to defeat their opponent.

As captured in an entertaining video, the match takes many dramatic turns. Just when the fight seems to be over, they each come back from being knocked out until one doesn't—eliciting cheers from their backyard audience while the victor pops a confetti canon.

The wrestling gender reveal was the brain child of content creator Ross Smith, who happens to be the brother of the pregnant mom. He also played the role of the referee—meaning he was ready to raise the hand of the victor once the struggle was over.

Long before this gender reveal wrestling match, Smith became an internet sensation alongside his grandma, who is known as Gangster Granny. Together, they film wacky videos that ultimately show the deep love between them. Smith's grandmother was also at the gender reveal, ready to give her grandson a high five for such great work.
