Reportage: Wrestlers head-locking to the Shay

The pageantry and athleticism of professional wrestling will be returning to Halifax this month as Megaslam Wrestling brings its show to the Shay.

Some of the top names in British wrestling including ‘The Warrior’ Paul Malen, ‘The Mexican Sensation’ El Ligero and female wrestler Chardonnay will be taking part in the show.

Brad Taylor, Megaslam Wrestling promoter, said: “Our show is catered towards families - the kids, the parents, the grandparents - it’s about putting on a show for them.

“We bill it as a two-hour family entertainment spectacular - they’ll see the lights, all the cameras will be there filming for Megaslam TV, we’ve got smoke machines and big AV lights.

“You boo the bad-guys, cheer the good-guys - it’s a good, wholesome family entertainment show.

“We try to mix up the British and American styles,” he said.

Wrestler ‘The Warrior’ Paul Malen hopes he will be in-line for a shot at the Megaslam Wrestling championship which will be defended by Bully Boy Carter in an action-packed tables, ladders and chairs match.

Paul said: “The only way to win the match is to climb a ladder to obtain the championship belt which is hanging from the ceiling.

“Other than that, the use of tables, ladders and chairs is all legal - there are no disqualifications.

“It’s very entertaining for the crowd to watch,” he said.

“My message to Bully Boy Carter is to keep that title nice and shined-up for me because I’m going to be taking that title and putting it back on my mantel where it belongs.”

The show takes place on March 21 from 7.30pm.
