A LOUD and enthusiastic crowd gathered in Tullibody at the weekend for some live wrestling action.

Touring group World Wide Wrestling League (W3L) brought an American-style wrestling event to Tullibody Civic Centre on Saturday, April 20.

There was plenty of action in the ring with international talent on the bill, including Poland’s UEWA European Heavyweight Champion Robert Star, London’s PROGRESS Wrestling star Malik and Canada’s Tim Strange.

W3L World Champion Taylor Bryden was also in action in a bid to defend his title at the event, which was filmed for the promotion's YouTube channel.

The Tullibody Wrestling Showdown was a family-friendly event with a couple hundred in attendance to cheer their favourites on.

Event promoter Mike Musgrave said: “All feedback has been great, 200 in attendance and they were a very loud and enthusiastic crowd.

“We will look to return in the future. Our tour dates are always updated on our website and social media.”

There was plenty of wrestling action at the event and it seemed like the championship title may have changed hands on the day.

However, W3L were quick to “clear up some confusion” from the event on social media.

A post said: “During a championship contest the referee for the contest suffered a concussion.

“In a state of confusion, the official told our MC to announce that a championship had changed hands via disqualification.

“A W3L Championship can of course only change hands via pinfall or submission.”

For those who may have missed the event, matches will be show in the weeks to come on w3lwrestling.com or find W3LNetwork on YouTube.

Looking ahead, W3L will be hosting its Mayday! event in Crieff on Monday, May 6.
