You could call this weekend crazy. It’s certainly outrageous, in your face and provocative. It could even be dangerous as girls throw femme fatales to the floor, and I haven’t even begun talking about the 2013 AVN Awards and Adult Entertainment Expo.

The Women of Wrestling debut their series as it comes to life -- or death grips -- at Eastside Cannery. Show your love for these tough girls, and you might get to go backstage to meet the comic character-named beauties. This YouTube video gives you a good idea of the punishment these women dish and receive.

What mischief is afoot with the arrival of pranksters Steve-O and Tom Green at the Riviera all weekend? Will these zany, eccentric jokesters do bodily harm to themselves while on The Strip?

Will there be a fans-go-wild escapade as Kourtney Kardashian visits Kardashian Khaos in The Mirage for the first time solo? Bet the bank on that.

It makes the music scene with DJ Pauly D and his first residency date at Haze in Aria, Sean Paul at Tao in The Venetian and Aaron Lewis with two casino hotel dates tame by comparison.

If you want to mix up comedy with food, Gabriel Iglesias is just the man for the job with his show at The Mirage and then his Fluffy Menu Burger at nearby BLT.

It’s a jam-packed weekend of entertainment, and that includes the princesses of porn, the vixens of video, the dangerous DVD dames, the sinners of sex and the self-proclaimed sluts of sleaze.

We’ve tied it up in lacy lingerie and fishnets, so it’s time now to unhook the bra clip and let it all hang loose in a wanton and wasted wilderness that we affectionately title every week the Royal Robin Rundown:
