Wrestlers of all shapes and sizes to tan­gle

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS - Danielle Jarvis

MORE than 30 pro-wrestlers will take over Evan Theatre at Pan­thers on Satur­day night for their TV tap­ing of Rock and Roll Wrestling.

The pro-wrestling show will in­clude a cham­pi­onship match, a 15man rum­ble and a women’s tag team match. The last man stand­ing in the rum­ble will be crowned win­ner of the first an­nual Pan­thers Bat­tle Royal – one Mt Druitt wrestler James Matthews, aka Two-Faced Al­cover Vyse, is chomp­ing at the bit to start.

“You can see small guys tak­ing on giants — you don’t nor­mally see that in other forms of wrestling,” he said.

De­spite his con­cern about shar­ing the ring with pop­u­lar gi­ant Drew Ful­ton, Matthews said he’s got a shot at win­ning the rum­ble.

The TV tap­ing will be for a pi­lot of a pro­posed pro-wrestling show in the style of the Amer­i­can WWE but with an Aus­tralian twist.

Doors will open at 7.30pm for 8pm start. All are welcome, but un­der-18 mem­bers will need to be ac­com­pa­nied by an adult. Tick­ets are $20 for adults and $15 for chil­dren. De­tails: visit pen­rith.pan­thers.com.au.
