Hell­raiser to re­turn

PRO­FES­SIONAL WRESTLING: Barbed wire, chairs and bull ropes were slung around the wrestling ring at the Le­gends Val­ley Fi­nal Cur­tain Call on Satur­day night.

There was no short­age of vi­o­lence across the evening with all-in bat­tles start­ing and end­ing the event.

Fights spilled into the crowds and blood poured from com­peti­tors’ faces as up­wards of 30 com­peti­tors fought for vic­tory.

For­mer Bach­e­lorette con­tes­tant Apollo Jack­son also made his Lai­d­ley Cul­ture Cen­tre de­but as the Aussie Hell­raiser.

Com­pet­ing along­side his for­mer col­league, the Gi­ant Ky­ote, the men put their se­cu­rity guard ex­pe­ri­ence to good use.

Per­form­ing the role of a hu­man brick wall, their op­po­si­tion bounced off the solid men which gave them a tag team vic­tory.

Jack­son said he planned to com­pete in the Lock­yer Val­ley show when in re­turned next year.

“It’s so much fun, it’s just like live theatre,” he said.

The meet was Jack­son’s fifth wrestling per­for­mance, and Le­gends Val­ley man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Peter Frost said Jack­son had plenty of po­ten­tial.

“There will def­i­nitely be more of Apollo,” Frost said.

“As his ex­pe­ri­ence grows he will be­come a bet­ter wrestler and he’s a great tal­ent at the mo­ment so we are go­ing to use him as much as we can.”

While Frost said pro­fes­sional wrestling meets in the Lock­yer Val­ley would be less fre­quent, they would def­i­nitely re­turn next year.

“I love the crowds out here, they’re a vo­cal crowd and they def­i­nitely get into it, it makes our job a lot eas­ier and a lot more fun,” he said.
