ALL the action of American wrestling came to Didcot.

Twelve wrestlers from countries including Japan, Germany, and the United States took part in the two-hour show at Didcot Football Club in front of an audience of about 150 on Friday night.

American wrestler Josh Faulkner, dubbed The American Disaster, said: “It was a really good show and a really good turnout. There is something for everybody in the show – there is the characters and the costumes.”

Organiser James Mason, a wrestler from Didcot, has now run the event five times at the venue in Bowmont Water.

He said: “The atmosphere in a place like this is fantastic. It’s pure family entertainment. We try to get our audience to come back year after year.”

The show finished with a Royal Rumble which sees all the wrestlers battle until one is left standing.

Organisers raised more than £200 through a collection and raffle for the charity Beat Bullying.
