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.
