Lewy "Ripper" Paradise makes his Spotland Scrappers ring debut v the popular
Spotland stalwart
Sam Smiler,
in a Brit Pro custom match
made in Heaven.
Referee Nigel Crabtree
introduces a Brit Pro style contest of 6 x 5 minute rounds of traditional technical wrestling
between two
well-matched guys.

'The match has what I like: good-looking and well-trained young wrestlers, colorful trunks, short fuses, long tight squeezes, and a decisive finish by pinfall. Deliberately old-fashioned by today's standards of flash, trash talk, and climactic knockouts, Paradise Loft hits the sweet spot with me.'

'I really liked this one. I think it'll appeal mainly to fans of classic wrestling. This is strong back-and-forth wrestling between two evenly-matched young studs in trunks.'

Sammy Scrapper
v Lewy Paradise
&
Young Ady v Yourek.
We look back at our first matches on the Grapplezone at The Loft
with two evenly-matched submission-style contests
between our grapplers and special guests
to mark the establishment of our Loft Studio facility six years ago.
Let's hope we'll be able to re-open the gym soon!

'Awesome!
Completely my type of match, loved it.

Real skilled wrestling and fighters with charisma too.'
'... a tough respectful competitive bout ...'

Matt Fletcher v Ray Junior
The match is heavier guy vs smaller guy but the lighter one is experienced and a better wrestler.
The fight is more of a brawl as both guys use their fists, forearms, uppercuts.
Matt uses power at times with slams and bearhugs against the resilient Ray,
who beats up Matt in and out of the ring.
