Pro wrestlers are getting ready to piledrive Fort Greene in a raucous May 1 donnybrook.

The brawlers will flex their muscles — and suplex their foes — in eight matches featuring fighters including the Nightmare, Little Greatness, and Rhett Titus.

But the melees are only part of the merriment at Forgotten Championship Wrestling’s “No Love Lost” event, which will also boast Hawaiian Tropic Zone models, live music, and an appearance by the retired Iranian grappler the Iron Sheik.

The lucha won’t be libre, but some of the cash from ticket sales will benefit soldiers wounded in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Organizer Tony Ntellas says his Spandex-clad slugfest is a great way to support the troops, some of whom will be on hand.

Forgotten Champion Wrestling at the Masonic Temple [317 Clermont Ave. at Lafayette Ave. in Fort Greene, (718) 638-1256], May 1; 8 pm. Tickets: $30 at the door ($50 for dinner and autograph with the Iron Sheik). For information, visit
