Squashlad is recommended by Merseywrestle
Finally got to wrestle squashlad, after wanting to wrestle him for a while. A nice guy who is as tenacious as his other opponents say he is. In fact it became a battle of who was the more stubborn, we drew on that. Great company as well as a great wrestle. I hope we wrestle sometime soon.
Merseywrestle is recommended by DARE68
Have been trying to arrange a meet with Merseywrestle for some time now, however geographical and personal constraints have prevented this, until today. My match with this guy was hard fought, sweaty and extremely tough. He is determined and equally as strategic when taking on his foe. Merseywrestle is another fighter who keenly embraces all aspects of wrestling and is a great guy to grapple. So glad we persevered and finally got to the mats. A fine, decent and considerate character is contained within this hulk of a wrestler and conversation between us flowed. Definitely up for a rematch, maybe on your home turf next time, big man?
DARE68 is recommended by Merseywrestle
Ok I have just met an awesome guy and had an awesome wrestle at grove park ring or grove park swimming pool by the time we finished. Dare is one of the nicest guys I have met in a long time, great conversation and great Wrestler. A must meet couldn't emphasis that enough guys. Hope we meet again soon.
Merseywrestle is recommended by hephaestion2014
Had a great wrestle today with this strong guy. It was a teensy wee bit hot but still had an awesome time. Amazing company and great to chat too as well. I'll await a rematch, on maybe a cooler day? 🤣 Thanks mate!
Merseywrestle is recommended by Ringo
We had a great afternoon together.
Tony is a gentleman who invited me to wrestle together,
Before our fight, I was afraid if I’m good enough for so experienced guy like Tony. And I was right. Tony is really good wrestler who can face the best wrestlers. On the other hand, he is safe, sane and best coach.
We have a great talk after our fights.
Love to face him again
Ringo is recommended by Merseywrestle
Met Ringo tonight when he came to mine for a wrestle. A big guy who is strong and keen to improve his wrestling.
We went through moves, chatted about how he can improve and about going to a meet at Pippa's and had a sweaty grapple.
He is a nice guy fellas, so lets welcome him more into the fold and get him on the mats.
Merseywrestle is recommended by HARD ONE
O Reino Unido tem me surpreendido.
Tive o prazer de conhecer Marseywrestle, uma pessoa extremanente educada.
Fui recebido em sua casa, aconchegante, com muita receptividade. Após uma conversa muito agradável, iniciamos nosso combate de dois rounds. Ele exibiu toda sua técnica e habilidade. Apesar do pequeno espaço, tivemos uma luta excitante e prazerosa.
Super indico este lutador de Liverpool.
HARD ONE is recommended by Merseywrestle
Met up with Fabio this evening who his over in the UK to learn English. We had an enjoyable submission style wrestle and he proved himself to be a strong guy but I had the edge on experience. A lovely guy to meet and I hope we do again soon before he leaves.
Merseywrestle is recommended by Fitzy1983
Met Tony today and had a good roll with him on the mats. After a working a night shift and driving 90 miles, it was good to lock up with this wrestler. After a short break he told me he's getting back into the scene and it was fun to show him a few moves I've picked up over the years. A nice guy to talk to and worth a meet, book him in!
Merseywrestle is recommended by Geekcub
Met for an introductory session. Great guy and I learned a lot. Went easy on me but did not make it easy for me. Will definitely want to meet again.
Merseywrestle is recommended by Nono
Met Merseywrestle yesterday during my stay in Liverpool.
We were chatting for quite a while and I was looking forward to wrestling with him.
He had arranged a wrestling area in one of his room with mats.
He's definitely an experience wrestler compared to me. We had to shorten the session as one of his arms hurt from a previous wrestling session.
However I had a great time wrestling with him and I hope we will be able to have a longer bout next time we meet, whenever it is possible.
Merseywrestle is recommended by toetotoe
Met this guy quite a few years ago when I first started wrestling. One of the nicest guys I have ever met. Resently got back in touch and had a rematch resently in a resent group meet. As tough and stubborn as I remember. Made me work hard to get any submission out of him.
Very easy to talk with and very intelligent. Can chat with for hours. Look forward to meeting again but definitely sooner.
Merseywrestle is recommended by chubbyjudo
We have met several times and always had a good time in the mat. Merseywresrle is s strong guy and always make you work hard good guyall round on and off mats
Merseywrestle is recommended by Torrnado
This guy is a natural wrestler. With his sturdy, strong build he is the epitome of a professional World of Sport wrestler. On the mats he displayed some very nifty defence moves and it was only my slightly greater experience that prevented me from being completely trounced. A lovely, gentle guy off the mats I thoroughly recommend him.
Merseywrestle is recommended by Steeleyes
What a generous man to have as a jobber.And I did manage to repeat the moves he demonstrated on me.With arm wrestling(my request) thrown in.A great chunk of exercise.Cheers
nw wrestler is recommended by Merseywrestle
I have known Phil for a while, we met through that other site (that shall not be named). A nice guy off the mats a formidable opponent on - will wrestle any style and make it enjoyable for both. We need to make our next fight soon mate. Highly recommended.
Wrestlecub is recommended by Merseywrestle
Before Nick went to live in the States I came to know this awesome wrestling machine a mountain of a man with the sweetest soul of anyone I have ever met. He Is a fantastic wrestler of any style at any level, safe, sane and tested my pain threshold to its limits, loved it. If your ever in the states or if he ever is in the UK don't pass an opportunity to meet him. My highest recommendation.
Merseywrestle is recommended by walsallgoodguy
14/5/18 meet at Pippa's, Wrestled Merseywrestle in the ring, a great opponent, and friendly guy,had a great match being squashed into submission, thanks hope to meet again
Merseywrestle is recommended by Barny peak
Met Tony for my 1st grapple match. What a top guy. Helped me with a couple of basic moves. I'm sure to have a rematch in a couple of months when I will hopefully be a bit more skilled...
Barny peak is recommended by Merseywrestle
It's always nice to meet a fellow Merseysider into wrestling. Barny is just getting into wrestling and has started going to MMA classes so it was good to have a bit of give and take and go through moves with him. He has long legs and as he improves we are going to need to avoid them. I have recommended a few good guys who am sure can help him along the way. Hope to catch up with him soon. Welcome to the grappling community mate.
Merseywrestle is recommended by mikeswuk
strong and skilful, a real gent on and off the mats
Merseywrestle is recommended by andy
I have known Tony for quite a few years and we have had a good few matches aswell.looking forward to having another match with him soon.see you on april 14th.
Merseywrestle is recommended by bikerskinnw
I was delighted to be invited to wrestle by fellow Liverpudlian, Tony.
Tony is a big, strong guy but we are well matched. Thoroughly enjoyed our rounds in which we both got subs. He is good company and I realised after our fight how relaxed I was whilst wrestling him and how this improved my game. We only live a few miles from each other so keen to meet up again soon.
I certainly recommend this safe fighter.
Merseywrestle is recommended by scotsgrappler
Reliable guy who was easy to arrange to meet. Turns up and enjoys getting stuck in and giving a good account of himself. Careful of lighter opponents and making sure a fun time is had.
Merseywrestle is recommended by blackwrestleruk
Have always enjoyed wrestling Merseywrestle from the first time down south to Barnsley and Liverpool. I always get a good workout plus enjoyment. This guy is strong, determined and skilled and a great guy off the mats hope we wrestle again soon.
Merseywrestle is recommended by eastcheshireguy
Had an enjoyable wrestle with this guy a couple of years ago. Space was limited but we got though a few holds and sweated it out.
Looking forward to a session with him with more space where I think his experience will show through.
Friendly guy too so recommended here.
Merseywrestle is recommended by Leglocklover
A good few years have passed since we met but Tony is a great guy who gave me an enjoyable match. Time to reconnect on the mats.
Merseywrestle is recommended by Tynesider
Merseywrestle kindly hosted for a match at his place.
As soon as we got to grips I was surprised by his strength, determination and aggression so had to rapidly up my game. I was pleased as it resulted in a good hour or so of solid, evenly matched grappling. A meal followed and the conversation never flagged.
He is definitely worth meeting and wrestling should you get the chance; I'll take him up on his offer for round 2 as soon as possible.
Tynesider is recommended by Merseywrestle
Met Brian when he came to Liverpool for a grapple on the 16.03.18. We had an hours worth of soild hard wrestling with subs on both sides, a great work out, he is also an interesting guy to chat too off the mats and it was nice to get to know him over a meal. Highly recommended if you haven't met him yet and look forward to round 2 on the 14th April mate.
musclneck is recommended by Merseywrestle
I have known this powerhouse of a man for a long time, witty, intelligent, honourable and a fantastic wrestler who toys with you like a cat with a rag mouse and I loved every minute wrestling him and hope to catch up again with him soon..Extremely Highly recommended.
Merseywrestle is recommended by Superfly
I remember when I first met this strong, keen wrestler. Man did he make work for the little subs I got from him. Our match was filled with sweat and stamina, my favourite type of roll with any opponent. Glad I managed to roll with him, hope there will be more. Recommended.
Superfly is recommended by Merseywrestle
Met Rob at a small meet alongside scotsgrappler and Imitaz, a really nice guy with superb wrestling skills and. a strong muscled body. We had a great wrestle and put each other through our paces. If you have wrestled him yes its highly recommeded you do. I hope we can again this year.
SurreyGuy is recommended by Merseywrestle
I met Simon through a friend of ours and have many a sweaty wrestle since, a strong skillful submissionwrestler who likes his ground work and also has taken up boxing too, a quiet soul who opens up once you get to know him, so if you box or grapple and are London way, look him up...you'll enjoy it.
Merseywrestle is recommended by southerngrappler
I have known Tony for about 12 years and count him as a good and close friend. He is a great grappler with a huge amount of strength but will wrestle to whatever level works for the other guy. Highly recommended!
southerngrappler is recommended by Merseywrestle
I have known Steve, as if forever, we met on that dreaded site Globalfight..He looks and can wrestle like the WOS stars of old, so if you into Britpro look him up as you will have a great bout, whether its as heel or jobber or just a good give and take..
Physical is recommended by Merseywrestle
It has been an honour to know this gentle giant (well not so gentle on the mats) of a man, a true gentleman, a great wrestler and I have to admit it a hunk of a bear type guy :). Knows his submission wreslting and will be agreat match for anyone. Now am back on the site, hope to catch up with him him soon.
Merseywrestle is recommended by secondsout
Enjoyed a great afternoon of wrestling at a group meet arranged by Merseywrestle a few years back. Good guy to wrestle and meet, a rematch is long overdue
Merseywrestle is recommended by Steve Shock
Have met Tony few times over the years
A great guy off the mats and great fun in the ring and on the mats
Safe sane wrestler who knows own how to wrestle
Look forward to more meets with Tony
Steve Shock is recommended by Merseywrestle
I seem to meet quite a few guys into britpro like Steve, a great guy who like myself is into oil wrestling and had an enjoyable give and take match, if you havent seen any of his youtube vids you should, its like watch an old WOS bout> looking forward to catching up with Steve soon.
mikecumbria is recommended by Merseywrestle
Met Mike at his home where we wrestled in his mat room.
A genial host who made me feel welcome and a great wrestler on the mats highly skilled and enjoyable comapny who live in a beutiful part of the UK - The Lakes.He teaches you that age is a number and you should enjoy wrestling at any age.
Look forward to grappling him again soon.
Perseus is recommended by Merseywrestle
Petros, a greek god of a wrestler, great physique, strong, skilled as a wrestler and difficult to beat but it was enjoyable to try. If you want to met a highly intelegent conversationalist who can deliver on the mats..look no further.
Looking forward to seeing you soon Petros.
Merseywrestle is recommended by Ironbull
I had a great wrestle with Merseywrestle when we met in 2015. Good skilled wrestler, safe and sane and excellent company off the mats. Highly recommended
Merseywrestle is recommended by manchesterwrestler
More of a submission guy than me but definitely worth meeting him ! Recommended.
manchesterwrestler is recommended by Merseywrestle
I have known this guy for years and he has become a good friend, he is an ambassador of the art of brit pro wrestling, has tried to teach me, ok crap at it, lol. If you want to meet a guy for a slow given and take flowing brit pro match, then contact manchesterwrestler!
Merseywrestle is recommended by jamstu

Merseywrestle is recommended by Wheeled Warrior
Nice guy. Very welcoming for a newbie at the time. Great to practice and teach each other some tricks for our next victims 😂
Merseywrestle is recommended by mackemsub
met up with Tony fter a few years gap
Strong arms and legs and knows how to wrestle. I drew first blood (sorry I bust your nose mate) but he led the action with subs both sides.
We also talked about life and its challenges and I enjoyed the company was well as the wrestle.
Merseywrestle is recommended by ImtiazAli
Merseywrestle is a good friend and has always been there for me. We initially met for a chat, but had a gentle submission wrestle too at his place in Liverpool. We have wrestled more since then.
He is a totally trustable person, and has good wrestling ability. Strong and determined but sane and completely safe. Lovely chap, highly recommended.
ImtiazAli is recommended by Merseywrestle
I class this young man as a good friend, good company, conversation and what a wrestler - talented, strong, safe and enjoyable. I am sure all those who have met him will agree and if you haven't, put him on your 'to meet' list. Looking forward to catching up with him soon.
Merseywrestle is recommended by latestarter
spent an enjoyable afternoon at Pippas with merseywrestle (and Dermott wigan). Great, easy going guy, on and off the mats. He was happy to wrestle at my level, taking time to show me moves etc. Good to be able to see them being more competitive with each other and talking through the holds/techniques afterwards.
latestarter is recommended by Merseywrestle
Met latestarter today at Pippa's along with dermott wigan, went through some holds we knew and had a light tussle, he is a nice guy, good to chat too, he is looking into what style and level of wrestling he wants to do at the moment, am sure he will find it soon..A good guy to meet.
Merseywrestle is recommended by davey123
This guy is a tank! Once he gets on top he can be hard to shift, but the wrestling was good fun as well as hard work! Very nice guy who is safe/sane. Knows what he is doing on the mats but remains good humoured all the time. Also gave me some good advice about looking after my knee! Recommended without hesitation.
Merseywrestle is recommended by GrappleViking
Had a great session with Merseywrestle at Pippas! Met with him and a few others, and we had a roll. Both worked up a sweat. He is a big strong guy, who uses his weight well, and knows his holds. He keeps coming at you, which I enjoyed!
Off the mats he is a nice lad, great to chat with. Will def be a round two at some point, has my recommendations!
GrappleViking is recommended by Merseywrestle
At a small meet I met Grappleviking, I found him to be a decent young man, good company, fantastic wrestler with a bottomless repotoire of holds, locks and moves, dont mind saying I got my ass kicked. I hope we can grapple again in the future.
Merseywrestle is recommended by Vanman
Keeping the recommendation short and sweet, I've wrestled him a lot and really missed him been on this site. Top bloke.
I want another rematch.
Vanman is recommended by Merseywrestle
Been a while since Vanman and I had a grapple and want one soon. A great bloke, who is good companyand a great wrestler able to go at all levels safe and sane.
Finally caught up with the big guy at a small meet today and, he never disappoints good company, even if he ribs me rotten, puts me through the wringer as we wrestle but is nice to know I can do the same back. Hope its not as long till our next meet and if any of you lot havent met him yet..What are you waiting for !!
Merseywrestle is recommended by dadwrestle

Have wrestled this fella on a couple of occasions before I moved south and have to say he's a great opponent. Fast, skilled and very knowledgeable he kicked my butt on our first encounter and second time around I managed to hold my own 😀

Merseywrestle is recommended by Ben skull stephens
Good to see Merseywrestle back on Meetfighters I met this great wrestler 2016,a great guy both on and off the mats for submission fans a good challenge nice and strong very accommodating HIGHLY RECOMENDED
Ben skull stephens is recommended by Merseywrestle
Met Brit_Pro_Heel last year (2016) when he cam to Liverpool an interesting guy who is a good submission wrestler as well as in his chosen britpro style. who has that Skull Murphy look. We certainly had a challenging sweaty wrestle.
Merseywrestle is recommended by Tanker
Oh my this is one of the all time greats of British wrestling, so pleased he is back on here! We go way back to the mid noughties, one of my earliest opponents. Great that he has reverted to the Merseywrestle name too ( wish dadwrestle would go back to being Maulerpaul )!
He co organised 2 Manchester Mayhems, amongst the best ever events I have attended back in 2009/10. (Be great if you resurrected those bud btw lol)
Tough skilled wrestler and a nice guy to boot, jobbers you will be totally safe with him! Has bulked up heavyweight status and it really suits him.
Hope we can fight again soon
