Life is about the journey - some roads are not always what they seem but you sure learn a great deal from them!
Event:
23 August 2014 presents another exciting event of live professional wrestling in Perth, so lock in the date for an entertaining evening.

Enjoy Live Wrestling in Perth!


I never imagined myself ever watching professional wrestling. I believed the outcome was predetermined or is it?

Dressing up for a fight!


For interest sake I made my way to the Cockburn Youth Centre to investigate this myth! While I was determined not to be drawn into the energy that was felt in the room, I sat in the rear observing the different characters that made their way into the ring. I found it interesting that each wrestler portrayed a character that was received by the crowd as either hero or villain. And, each match was showcased similar to a play, yet there was a great deal more danger involved.

It is about - skill and precision!


I believe it was the latter that drew me closer to the arena. I am an avid fan of sports, and I noticed the immense amount of strength and precision each wrestler portrayed with every move.
For those that think that wrestlers do not experience any pain during a match is seriously misinformed. I, unfortunately, believed that every grimace was just part of the act. However, I witness wrestlers taking a great deal of 'punishment' with evidence of battle scars after each 'fight'.

Evidence that it is not an 'act'!


What really intrigued me is the precision with each move. By throwing a wrestler just one millimetre out of position could leave them wheel chair bound for the rest of their lives. I am sure that there are many that would not subject themselves to this level of trust.

Chris Vice - down but not out!


Oddly enough, by the end of the evening I surprised myself with enjoying the whole event. I also believe that there are probably a lot of people who see wrestling in the same fashion as I once did. So if you have never been to a live match and, like myself, think it is all an act I would strong encourage you to watch an event for yourself!

On the 23 August 2014, you will witness professional wrestler's battle it out in the Perth City Riot: Fatal 4 Way Elimination AOF Championships. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online. It is $20.00 for an adult and $10.00 for kids. The doors open at 7 pm, however I suggest you get there a little earlier if you want a ring side seat to experience the action. Refreshments will be on sale together with some memorabilia.
