There's nothing like a good, cathartic release on a Friday night. Usually it involves letting loose at the end of the working week, but, come the first week of the AFL finals series in September, it will also be sought after by any footy fan whose club produced little more than a winter of pent-up frustration.
On Friday September 9th, 2011, it will be hard to find a better way to liberate oneself from the 9-5 grind or to vent one's spleen after a failed footy season than by heading along to WrestleRock at the Corner Hotel.
As its name suggests, WrestleRock combines live professional wrestling with live rock music. It's a chance for you to gather around a squared circle and scream your lungs out as some of Australia's top wrestlers go head-to-head, before rocking along with some top local music acts. For the adult wrestling fan, the 18 environment is a welcome escape from the PG-rated, family-oriented product offered by the world's most prominent grappling organisation, America's WWE.
This show on September 9th has been a long time coming. WrestleRock's been on a lengthy hiatus and will be keen to return with a bang and build upon a history that was highlighted by a well-publicised match involving media personality Ian "Dicko" Dickson at the Hi-Fi Bar in 2008. (Watch highlights of the match in the video below).
The card hasn't been announced at the time of writing but the music side of things will be taken care of by Chinatown Angels and a band making their debut performance and launching their new album, Thunderstag.
