Bruises, bodyslams and plenty of fun at wrestling show

Well over 700 wrestling fans packed the gymnasium at the Nature Fresh Farms Recreation Centre on Saturday, June 1 to witness the inaugural event for Noble Champions Group Wrestling — In Your Town.

The new professional wrestling company — launched by four young people with Leamington connections — did not disappoint those in attendance, as every bodyslam, suplex and frog splash was felt by every fan in the building.

Wrestler MV Young was thrown into an aluminum ladder and even went through a folding table as part of the Sherk Street Fight match against Shotgun Tony Gunn.

The show was an all-ages event and every kid in attendance was busy cheering the good guys and booing the bad guys.

The evening kicked off with a gauntlet-style battle royal to determine who would face Stone Rockwell for the inaugural NCG Championship in the main event.

Giant Orion emerged victorious over eight other wrestlers, including crowd favourite, Space Monkey.

In the ladies match, Seleziya Sparx became the first-ever NCG women’s champion with a close victory over Nikita.

Excitement was in the air as former WWE and current TNA superstar Rhino made quick work of challenger Gianni Emricko.

Current TNA champion Moose was on hand to take on Kevin Blackwood, and the giant Kongo Kong proved a fan favourite with a victory over Zeeko.

But it was the main event that crowned the first NCG Heavyweight Champion and that took place between Giant Orion and the popular Stone Rockwell. After many near-falls, Rockwell took the victory to get the belt.

Organizers were pleased with the response and announced another big event called Bad Temper on August 31 with current TNA Knockouts champion Jordynne Grace scheduled to wrestle.
