I think I'd be interested to see a version of #3 with a bit less processing on her face.
as a complete aside, I was once in a supermarket when a little boy, perhaps 6 or 7 years old, stopped dead in the aisle in front of me, pointed at me and shrieked "Stone Cold!" ... I had to laugh

haha I love the photos. The PP gives it a sort of a gritty look which suits the context.

I want to thank everyone for the comments.
Ray, I know what you mean about these types of events. However, I will shoot almost anything, especially if it leans a bit to the strange or bizarre side of things.

Some very pixelated images, but very entertaining.

Great captures, Rick, and I dig the grain as well.

We do have a crazy country, don't we?! Your choice of B&W and the graininess add to the surreal and weirdness beautifully!
I hadn't realized the woman in question was a wrestler either...I almost thought she was checking her cell phone.
My own favorite is your second one - that fellow with the dark suit and light tie...wearing the shades and that hat...wielding that cane is a counterpunch, if I may, to those two wrangling on the floor. Well seen and caught, Rick. I think I'd be hiding behind my long lens that I don't have.

oh this is what made me love this shot!
the glowing magical look about her face
it could be cropped down to basically just be a shot of the face, and id still think it was fantastical!
