Super Slam Wrestling Rumbles Through Epsom

Back in October, Superslam Wrestling hit Epsom playhouse. After being the beneficiary of a spare ticket, I grabbed my camera and got ready for something a bit different to my normal Sunday. 

First up was an ‘American’ bloke against the World champ. I’ve quickly realised that I’ve no idea who any of these wrestlers are, and the website isn’t particularly forthcoming, so this post might have to be almost purely photos.

After winding up the, almost exclusively under 10, crowd ‘Mr.America’ belted out the Star Spangled Banner with his helpful assistant blocking out the carefully orchestrated boos from the partisan crowd.

A few big moves later though…

..and the champ emerged victorious, much to the delight of the crowd.

So 1-0 to the good guys it went.

The next goody vs baddy fight apparently featured William Regal’s son as the goody for those of you that are fans of the WWE.

I thought I’d try something a bit different for this bout and so I filmed it. It’s a long one but worth a watch!

I won’t spoil bout 2 in case you want to watch it so on to bout 3.

Bout 3 featured a guy off the telly. Unfortunately this is another area I’m not an expert in – all I know is he’s the one with FLEX written across his backside and he was representing team good guy.

After a quick check with the crowd, Flex unleashed the elbow drop from the top rope to secure the win. Goodies 2-1 Baddies.

Bout 4 was more a carefully choreographed dance than a fight, that was until a ‘low blow’ brought a messy end to it at which point a variety of previous wrestlers appeared in the ring to add to the tension. After a number of accusations had been thrown around with the aid of a microphone, the announcer carefully stepped in, asked the crowd if a rematch was in order and then checked what date in February next year people would prefer..

..unsurprisingly they’re back in half term.

Aaaaand finally, despite the feeling of ‘unfinished business and come back next time for the showdown’ there was one last bout to come.

It was fairly unique.

I think the kids have worked out he’s the baddy for this one,

Team baddy had a fairly difficult time keeping a straight face fighting his particularly quirky opponent.

Not sure what this move is called,

I think this was substantially more impressive than the kids in the audience gave credit for,

Unsurprisingly, the impact from the landing after this brought an end to the fight and to a rather enjoyable afternoon.

Now that was a SuperSlam,

And suddenly I’m looking forward to going back to see some local wrestling next Feb. Funny how these things turn out.
