Profile of matworker (119)
Please note that I have mobility problems and can only do light roll arounds on the mats.
Or if you want to practice some holds on my upper body then i will be able to do that too.
Normally when I'm at full fitness...
I'm a little/ powerhouse with lots of stamina. Open as to styles but my favourite are Pro sub bouts with lots of give and take. Love wrestling to exhaustion then going for it again.
A jobber at heart but I put up a mean fight and can heel at times.
I live in the Midlands on the Derby/Nottingham border. I can host or travel. I visit London and Manchester often.
I also organise wrestling events for the Grapevine Wrestling Group.

A lot of fun yesterday on the mats with this incredible guy: so nice, friendly, smiling... and very resistant! You can apply many holds on his upper body, even the dirty ones lol, he will like it and make you hear that. I met "Mister Good Mood" for sure :-)
sagittaron2 is recommended by matworker
I will long remember his wonderful "evil" grin as he put me in many holds, clearly enjoying it as much as I did.
Of course I resisted with my usual determination, saying No, non and Nein to his yes, Oui and Ja. Then cranked the holds on even more.... Brilliant.
The match was great fun, thanks again for overlooking my physical limitations and wrestling with me.
I hope we will meet again.
matworker is recommended by GrappleViking
I have attended matworkers meets for years and years, and have seen him take punishment from other wrestlers many times. And punishment he got.. And he can take it, too! Enjoyed dominating him in a few good holds, esp me legs.
Off the mats, he's the friendliest of men. 'Till next time mate!
GrappleViking is recommended by matworker
After a number of years knowing this friendly guy, we finally got the chance wrestle at the Grapevine event on 06/07/18, well more accurately, I asked him to put me in a few holds and he kindly obliged.
His camel clutches are brilliant and his legs are very strong, vice like even. More, more, more 🙂
It was well worth the wait.
matworker is recommended by Steeleyes3
Matworker is one of the most amusing wrestlers to meet.Glad to see he is getting about again after a long absence.We have had a few mat encounters at Pippas during meets he organised.He is best known for distracting you by making lots of noise; so I usually cheat and take him by suprise .Welcome back M.W.
Steeleyes3 is recommended by matworker
I thought it was time to add my recommendation for this enthusiastic wrestler.
He is good fun on and off the mats.
I won't say anything about his cheating tactics... oops 🙂
His skills have greatly improved from being the "concrete block" that he started out as being.
He has a wicked sense of humour and isn't afraid of using it at every opportunity, even in the middle of a match. It's a sneaky distracting tactic which is very effective and so much fun.
A match with him is always a pleasure. Highly recommended.

What a great guy we got on the mats at pippas an had a ball hope I don't ave to wait to long till we wrestle again
Gazbat0807 is recommended by matworker
We had a really fun match at the Grapevine event 06/07/19.
Even with my limited abilities I managed to fight back a bit, but that didn't matter with regards to the enjoyment of wrestling this guy.
It was a great experience and I hope that we get the chance for a rematch soon.
7TH DEC 2013 MET AT MATWORKERS GROUP MEET IVE KNOWN DAVID FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS NOW BUT NEVER GOT AROUND TO WRESTLING HIM UNTILL TODAY HE IS STRONG AND FIT AND A DAM GOOD WRESTLER BUT ALL SO FULL OF FUN AND A GREAT HOST WHO WILL GO OUT OF HIS WAY TO HELP ANYONE AND IM PROUD TO HAVE HIM AS A GOOD FREIND AND MATE AND WOOD RECOMEND HIM TO ANYONE I PROMICE YOU THAT YOU WOINT REGRET MEETING THIS GUY ONE BIT HE ONLY AS ONE FULT YOU ALWAYS NO WHEN HES AROUND ONLY JOKING MATE
It was a shock to hear that John died on 14/02/2019
John was a great ambassador to the wrestling community. He tirelessly organised regular events for the Open Wrestling Group and others.
He was always keen to share his wrestling knowledge and was very hospitable.
He will be missed greatly by all who knew him.
07/12/2013 - Finally had a match with John. We've known each other for a while as we both attend various wrestling event but we never had a match until today. It was worth the wait.
John is a strong wrestler who knows his holds. He's a very friendly guy off the match too and very generous. Highly recommended. I look forward to our next match.
I met Dave for a match for a small guy he is strong and knows his stuff we both had a 50/ 50 match together which was very fun we both have a massive respect for each other and had a great grapple would very much recommend him a real wonderful guy to meet all round look forward to more meets in the future
(09/09/17) Pippa’s Wrestling Factory, Manchester. Met Dave for a very brief match on the mats...well, in between the name calling and the giggling it was a lot of fun! Great guy to chat too off the mats and most definitely a guy I want to meet for a longer match. Here's to next time...!
I've met matworker quite often during the group meets he kindly sets up throughout the year.
Though he does like to fall into the jobber role every now and again, he's certainly got the strength, technicalitityiytiyty and stamina to be a good challenge.
He's a great laugh at all the group meets and a great host too - and we're getting your bingo card made!
Very highly recommended
I've known Dan for a number of years and always had great matches with him. He's strong and knows his moves/holds etc but is very respectful of others limitations.
It was a pleasure to meet and wrestle him again at the Nottingham Grapevine event on 02/09/2017.
Thanks again for joining us and I hope to wrestle you again soon.

24/6/17 - met Dave at Geordies weekend wrestle meet. I had met Dave a few years ago in a group meet and always remember having a fun wrestle with him. And nothing has changed there. Although Dave is a lot lighter now which makes it more easy to heel this jovial jobber. A pleasure to chat to off the mats. Highly recommended and can't wait to work him over again soon.
matworker is recommended by dadwrestle
It's true! The cannon ball is now slim!! But he's not lost any of his energy to wrestle! I discovered another weakness yesterday! Had a brief fun roll with him yesterday! What a guy!
WHY HAVE I NEVER WRITTEN A RECOMMENDATION BEFORE??!!
I have know this great guy for years! Hes a perfect host, safe, sane, reliable and, above everything else, FUN!! He has one weakness....which I leave you to discover! More importantly, he has shouldered the running of the Grapevine meets for a long time now. Again, he is a good host, making "newbies" relaxed and encouraging them on to the mats. Events are well organised, friendly and inclusive. He is a blast on the mats, too.
Without this wrestler, the wrestling world in UK would not be the experience it is!
Had a really great gut punching session with matworker. He worked my belly over hard with his fists . Slamming them hard and deep into my gut.then when I was on the floor he stamped hard on my belly. Stood on it and crushed my gut.
Then I got to work on his belly with my bag gloves on. Gave him a good work over.
Excellent meeting and I hope for many more.
It's rare for me to do just a gut punching session without the wrestling but I'm pleased that I had the chance with this guy.
He can take a lot and give it back.
Having read on his profile what he enjoys I followed his guidance during the session.
He was respectful of my limits and considerate.
I'm looking forward to the next time.

walsallgoodguy is recommended by matworker
02/04/2016 - Roger attended the Grapevine Group Event in Manchester and he certainly had a good time. I think he tried to wrestle almost everyone who attended including myself. It was a pleasure to meet him and grapple. Somehow he managed to get a submission out of me. I think I must have let him put me in a hold and he went for it.... that's my excuse anyway.
Later on we had a tag match with a couple of cheating swines.... erm.... I mean skilled wrestlers ;-) It was great fun.
His cries of pain as the guys put him in various holds was a joy to hear. It's usually me that makes all the noise.
I hope I get the chance to wrestle him again... I need to get him back for the submission :-)
He's a great guy and a good sport.
10/10/2015: I'm not quite sure given all the meets that we've been to in common why it's taken so long for me to have a proper grapple with matworker---probably because he's usually busy being the host with the most I suppose---but at the OWG meet, freed from his admin duties, we fixed that. He'd let me into the secret of his one weakness earlier in the day, but it did me no good and I was on the receiving end of matworker's excellent heeling skills, a wide variety of submission holds and pro moves. All very safely done though---this is a very considerate and careful wrestler and he's therefore highly recommended. There'll be much less time before the rematch.
01/04/2017: Just a bit of an update to let y'all know that that wasn't a one-off, and that Dave has subsequently taken another break or two from his superb hosting of meets to educate me in how to wrestle, and shown me who's boss again. He is an inventive but safe heel and enjoys taking charge, which makes for a good match. Here's to many more meets!
Craig was in jobber mode for our match and it was good for me to channel my inner heel, something I don't often get the chance to do. I enjoyed putting him in various holds and keeping him on the edge of submission, teasing him. The smile on his face and the moans of pleasure mixed with pain told me how much he was enjoying the match. Of course, as it was our first match I only introduced him to a few of the holds in my arsenal. I'm looking forward to our next time. Highly recommended.
I met Dave at my first Grapevine event. He was my second ever match. A lovely guy who encouraged me to push myself and practice some holds.He gave me some great advice. I'm sure he went easy on me this time. He was easy to talk to off the mat and was very welcoming. A great guiy and I look forward to the rematch, I know it will be a lot harder next time.
07-01-2017 - It was a pleasure to meet and wrestle this "newbie" at the 1st Grapevine event of 2017.
He's fit and strong and very flexible. It was difficult to keep him in a hold, he wriggles out of them and is quick to put one of his own on when given the opportunity.
I know his wrestling skills will only increase with experience and then we all be in real trouble :-)
I'm looking forward to our next match.
matworker is recommended by hephaestion2014
Finally got our wrestle. Worth the wait. The wrestle was so much fun, like the opponent.
A great guy to talk to off the mats as well as on. Yet to discover all of his one weaknesses, but look forward to trying to in the future ;)
Thank you for the wrestle and hosting all these events too.
hephaestion2014 is recommended by matworker
We've been at several of the events together but not managed to actually wrestle. Of course, we are both just too popular, we couldn't find the time.
We made up for this on 5th November 2016 at High Barnet and it was worth the wait.
He's a great wrestler and so much fun. I still think he cheated by finding out my "one" weakness lol.
I'm looking forward to our next match.
2016-10 = MATWORKER is fixed point in my travels in the UK. He is a perfect organizer and likeable wrestler I can not miss *** 2015-10 = What can be said about MATWORKER that has not already been said? Excellent organizer and likeable wrestler to be known to anyone who is in the UK ... thanks again Dave *** 2013-10 = I had great fun in Barnets with all the wrestler I met. After one year I can say our wrestling match was more intense and funny. look forward for next year *** 2012 - How can I say about this wrestler? He has got very special techniques and it is a great fun to meet him on the mat. You can't go to London without knowing Matwrestler and contact him before because he can made your day in London REAL SPECIAL
Anton is a fit, strong wrestler with great skills and a charming personality. I was honoured to be asked to organise a wrestling event for him and a few friends in November 2012. We had a fantastic afternoons wrestling and a tasty meal afterwards. Some new friends were made and I look forward to meeting and wrestling Anton and friends again.
Update 19/10/2013: Anton visited the UK again in October 2013 and once again I was honoured to be asked to organise another wrestling event for him. The afternoon was very enjoyable and it was good to wrestle my strong friend again. The meal afterward was a treat too.
I look forward to the next time.
Dave is a really friendly fun guy. He made me feel so welcome and I thoroughly enjoyed our match. Looking forward to the next one!
matworker is recommended by Captainandy
A really good bloke. I've not done any wrestling for a while and he was perfect for easing me gently back into the sport - and then putting on the pressure to make me work. I'm going to be aching for days, which is exactly what I wanted! I can't give him too much praise.
Captainandy is recommended by matworker
03/04/2016 - Andy came to my house for an afternoon wrestle. We started off gently and built up the pressure.
He is a strong guy with a good pain threshold and I know that once he has regained his technique, he will have me submitting. I put him in lots of holds and he resisted well. He put me in some good holds too but my high pain threshold and my stubbornness helped me to resist, although I was very close sometimes.
A great guy to wrestle, I'm looking forward to the next time.
I met with Dave over the Easter weekend .We had a lot of fun Dave is a very skilled wrestler who is able to adapt to his opponents level. He is a very strong guy and very hard to shift when he puts on a hold, Dave has a fantastic sense of humour i would reccomend him to anybody I look forward to our next match
Tony was a fantastic host over the Easter weekend 25th-27th April 2016.
He is a keen wrestler with some good skills. As others have said, he's stronger than he looks and can surprise you when he gets the chance.
A great guy off the mats too.
I look forward to our next match.
matworker is recommended by subwrestler2
Dave is a great guy who went to all the trouble of organizing a wrestling meet to bring together a group of guys for me to wrestle with. Everything was right on time and great group of guys showed up. Even after the meet Dave was still organizing activities. Obviously something he is good at.
Now on the Mat Dave is a different guy. There he is sassy and knows all the right things to make you want to work him over which is exactly what I did. I punished him hard which is exactly what he needed and possibly wanted. Then I put him in holds and we worked on him saying nice things rather than name calling. I think Dave had a good lesson. One I hope he won't forget:)
Thanks again Dave.

Kevin contacted me asking if there were any events organised during his trip to Manchester in Jan 2016. Having mistakenly told him yes, when I found out there wasn't an event, what could I do but organise one? I'm so pleased I did.
Kevin is a great wrestler, strong, fit and technical in his style, but also playful. We had a couple of matches during the day. Towards the end of the session he "rewarded" me by treating me to his inner "heel". The jobber in me loved the various holds he put me in and the gut punches, trapping my arms and taking his time to build up to 100 punches....... WOW lol.
He's a great guy on and off the mats. It was a pleasure to meet him.
Thanks again for the matches. I loved them.
matworker is recommended by Celticmuscle
This guy deserves great credit for taking on the workload associated with organising these group meets, and he does it with no expectation of personal reward. Its clear he loves wrestling and he has no fear. He took on every guy there no matter the size difference and he took a lot of punishment while dishing out some great verbal of his own. Incredibly nice man with a heart of a lion. Thanks for the meet and for the match!!
Celticmuscle is recommended by matworker
It was a pleasant surprise to see this big guy at the Manchester event on 9th January 2016. I just had to ask him for a match and it was well worth it.
Of course I managed to get him to submit..... me many times lol.
I think he cheated by using his extra muscled weight to crush me ;-)
He's a safe and sane wrestler and the match was great fun. I hope we get a rematch. Thanks again for taking me on big guy :-)
Dave was one of the first persons to welcome me when I began to attend the meets in Manchester. Always ready to chat and share his experience, he is a strong wrestler, who can give just as well as take. I had a great time wrestling him and look forward to the next time!
Michael regularly attends the events organised in Manchester so I've known him for a long time. I'd not realised that we'd never had a match. My bad. Sorry Michael. That was rectified at the event on 31/10/2015. We had a friendly submission style match and it was great fun. He knows his moves and is better than he gives himself credit for. He's a great guy off the mats too, a true gentleman. I look forward to our next match :-)
matworker is recommended by Ricotewrestler
The honour was all mine buddy! This I'd one if the most fun wrestlers to encounter at any meet as he is lots of fun and very enthusiastic as the match progresses ! Excellent partner and also excellent leader gathering the meets and pushing the movement forward! It goes without saying that he is also great to have as a friend ! So I'm honour to call him one !
Ricotewrestler is recommended by matworker
I was honoured to be asked to organise a wrestling event for Pedro during his trip to the UK in October 2015. We had a great time and wrestling him was a joy. He is very knowledgeable in his technique and careful to be safe with his opponent.
I think we both agree that the time we spent together was not long enough.
I look forward to the next time.
Wrestled multiple times on the mats in Hendon and have never had so much fun wrestling this feisty guy. Loved domming him bigtime and he is a great wrestler. Safe and sane guy off and on the mats.......grrrrrrr
Have known Dave for nearly 6 years and we have had quite a few matches at the group events he is a great friend both on and off the mats aswell.
A great wrestler, really enjoyed my grapples with him, even if I was a little bit taller than him, he certainly uses his skills well and was more than capable of keeping me busy.
I will be back!
25/06/2015 - We had a great tag match and 121 session at my home with oldscrapperderby as my tag partner and RobUK as his.
We had a number of matches during the session and it was great fun.
Safe and sane and a real pleasure to wrestle.
I'm looking forward to the next time.

Met matworker at Pippa's and we just had time for a quick bout before I had to leave. He's very agile on the mats and we had a good grapple - one of my noisier opponents I have to admit! Nice guy to chat to off the mats too so a definite recommend.
matworker is recommended by The Kestrel
Dave is a truly brilliant guy, only had a 3 minute grapple at the grapevine meet but it was great fun! He let me make use of the jobber in him, playing the scene well and put up terrific resistance, he is greatly skilled and has the strength to back himself up.
As organisor if the event he also set the spirit of the group as well and was a joy to be around and talk to, his exciting enthusiasm is very infectious, i would not need to be prompted twice to wrestle him again, terrific man, i could nit recommend him enough
The Kestrel is recommended by matworker
07/02/2015 - For a "novice" Kes has a natural wrestling ability and is a quick learner. His strength and skill can only improve as he continues and I'm sure he'll get many more matches and recommendations as time passes.
He's a friendly guy to chat to and showed no ego. It was a pleasure to meet and wrestle him at the Grapevine event in Barnet. I hope we get to meet again for a rematch.
A wrestler who is able to keep going when he is under pressure. A determined and stubborn wrestler and loves giving banter while he is wrestling, a humourous guy with a nice personality and easy to get along with. Definitely worth recommending!
07/02/2015 - It was a joy to meet Robin at the Grapevine event. He is very friendly and outgoing and he has brilliant wrestling skills. He uses his strength and skill to great effect but is also safe and sane.
He really got involved in the event and had a number of matches. This shows his versatility as he adapts to his opponents.
Thanks again for joining us and I hope we get a rematch.
matworker is recommended by ChineseGrappler
I'd like to say that I had a good short match against Dave, at one of the events he organises and he was a lot tougher than I expected. I think one minute of our match was me laughing at his banter, which is something I just don't do, but that doesn't take away from his wrestling skills. A recommendation not just for the match but regularly organising such meets for the community.
ChineseGrappler is recommended by matworker
07/02/2015 - I really enjoyed the short 3 minute match with Stephen at the Grapevine event.
His legs are very strong and he knows how to use them.
Those body scissors were crushing.
It was great to see how he really got involved in the group and had a number of matches. Thanks again for supporting the event.
I hope we get to have a repeat match. I will not submit to those body scissors again!!!! ;-)
He is a great friendly guy and wrestler took over the Grapevine wrestling days from me when I moved to Cyprus in 2008
Met Dave at pippas yesterday and what a lot of fun he is. It may have been a short wrestle (and I am not referring to his height) but it was long on entertainment value. Lots of teasing, running commentary and cheek but don't be deceived he is no slouch when it comes to knowing his wrestling moves so he offers the best of both, good wrestling and good banter. Great company off the mat too. He helps organise these meets so do go along and take advantage of him (I mean that in a purely innocent wrestling fashion ha ha)
I had a great time wrestling this guy at the event in Manchester 10/05/2014.
He is strong and skilled. Those body scissors are real crushers. It was towards the end of the session and I was getting tired after so many matches. Well... that's my excuse anyway :-)
I hope we get a rematch.
Thanks again for the match.
Met Dave at the grapevine session at Barnet and had a go with him. He screams and takes holds with great enthusiasm and energy - difficult to get a sub from him and I'd like to say thank-you for arranging the session too.
Well I first met matworker at his Manchester Meet, back on Saturday 7th June 2013. About a month after I started wrestling. My first ever Manchester Meet too: http://www.meetfighters.com/events/213
Got to "heel" him as he was "jobber", on Saturday 8th March 2014. That was fun. :-) A ticklish, fun-loving man - happy and laughing.
I've known Imran for a while but we'd not managed to get a match. We have both just been too popular and it's difficult to get around everyone at the events. :-)
We finally managed it at one of John's Events - 08-03-2014
It was worth the wait. I was in jobber mode (for a change lol)
Imran has a great variety of holds and is very skilled. He's a pleasure to wrestle.
A very nice guy off the mats too. Highly recommended.
Have had a few matches with Dave at Group meetings and they have always been great fun - he's an excellent wrestler who knows his stuff but will also play the ultimate jobber giving it lots of verbal to make even the most inexperienced wrestler feel confident to give it a go.
Also a really genuinely friendly guy who is great fun to know!
Look forward to another session where he can make me look good again!! LOL ;-)
I have known Dave for several years and regularly wrestle him. He is very experienced and is a great guy to wrestle with. He is most friendly and is great to be with off the mats
Very friendly and welcoming bloke. Has been kind enough to host a couple of sessions at his place. Has some hidden strengths and incredibly effective cursing ;-) You'll get a foreign language lesson to boot! Highly recommend.
2 Nov 13. Met David at the meet he organised at Barnet. A fun guy with a deadly headlock. great job Dave. thanks
Dave is a great friend to me and many in the wrestling world and does a brilliant job running Grapevine Wrestling. The group use the Barnet Mat room each quarter (see the event board for dates). The sessions are great fun and attract a great group of wrestlers. I'd recommend supporting the group when they meet not only in Barnet but in other town around the country. Andy
I've known Andy for many years. He is a great guy, very friendly and hospitable.
I often use his matroom in Barnet for Wrestling Events and he is a brilliant host with nothing being too much trouble.
He also gives a fantastic massage. Highly recommended.
Although we have not actually wrestled, I've added him as past opponent so he can have the required minimum matches to be able to post his own Events on meetifighters. I've only managed to attend a few of them and know they are great occasions. I wish I lived closer so I could be at them regularly.
If you have enjoyed using the Barnet matroom, you may want to add him as a past opponent too and help promote another tireless supporter of the wrestling scene.
Dave is an unsung hero, stalwart & much loved character of the British wrestling scene, tirelessly arranging events at Pippas , Barnett & Nottingham, for which I for one am very grateful. Lovely warm friendly guy. In his time has been a Gymnast & Professional Wrestler & has considerable stamina, skill, as he says himself is a little powerhouse of energy, totally safe & sane. Def much overdue recommendation. Ps His sound effects are second to none !
David is a great guy to wrestle with lots of good holds.
He is regular supporter of the events I organise and very reliable.
Of course because he is a BIG guy pro is our prefered style and we have had some brilliant matches. Great on the mats or ring and a good guy off them too.
Had a short but fun match with Dave at Pippa's. Really nice guy on and off the mats. Thank you for organizing the meet(s)!
8/2/12 Hi had the pleasure of fighting Dave today.. Lots of grunting and groaning and the occasional scream !
He knows his wrestling and he's a lot of fun. Wrestle him .
Meet "Mat" at the Cats Club meet yesterday which he organised. First time I have ever been to a meet. He made me feel welcome and at home with the other wrestlers. As for his wrestling he's the typical wos wrestler cheeky,skilled and makes wrestling fun!! Great match, great venue and most of all "mats" a great bloke... Looking forward to next time!!
It was a pleasure fight with Maworker, a nice person also off the matt, and I was glad to fight and know the others Barnett wrestlers
I'd like to have a group like your in Italy.
It was a pleasure also know each others a little bit and have a nice dinner in a wonderful English pub slurp!!!Thank Mattworker for all!!
Me too I hope to meet you and the others boys next time!!

Matworker from Nottingham like Robin Hood!We had a great time in the Wrestling Contest held in London at High Barnet on saturday 17th.Well built and proud wrestler.So I could define him after the wrestling match.But also a person with a deep sense of friendship and cheerfulness.It's what I found of him not only on a mat but also before a good half a pint of beer at a pub.I wouldn't hesitate to meet him again in a next contest in U.k.,wherever it will be held.
Had a good first wrestle with Dave at Pippa's last Saturday. We did a few light subs and Dave kindly allowed me to put him in a number of holds and he taught me some that I have seen done in professional wrestling. Great stuff, I'm not saying I could have got Dave in those holds if he wasn't showing me how to do a camel clutch and a boston crab, but it was a great experience with a great guy. Thanks Dave, I appreciate all your advice, support and friendship. Cheers!

smashing fella to meet and wrestle. Thanks for organising this and many other meets. Look forward to round 2
Had my first wrestle with Dave at Pippas yesterday. He is great wrestler, knows his stuff and is very strong. A really nice guy too and I hope we can get to grips again soon.

2 Great guys who are fantastic to wrestle both individually and as a team. When they ganged up on me and worked me over they really turned up the heat.
Highly reccommended. If you get the chance to meet these guys then don't think twice. Go fight them, you won't regret it.
I had a great time with you both and hope to see you again on your next trip.
MY 3 minute timed bounts were on the spot but I think the other guys turned the timer off when these guys had me on the mats. LOL

Dave is a real nice guy, I've known him for years, is great to wrestle, and is safe and sane with a lightweigh guy like me, but equally up to the challenge of a big guy! I would recommend him to anyone, big or small.

I've known Den for a number of years now. He's a regular at group events so he is reliable. He is a versatile wrestler, skilled in many styles - Sub, Pro and even nhb for those who enjoy that.
He is safe and sane, able to take on much bigger guys.
I've always had a good match with him.
He's not a bad chap outside the wrestling arena too. lol
Great guy, so easy to beat up, NOT!!!!
I've wrestled him twice so far. Hope I get another go while he's still in the UK.
I stood no chance against him but he is safe and sane.
I lost count of how many times he made me submit but it was great fun and I kept coming back for more, till I couldnt take anymore.
I think, that smile on his face meant he enjooyed it too.
GGRRRRRR (Private joke)
Thanks again big guy :-)
had another great evening with matworker. he's got some wicked moves tucked away, and he keeps going for ages. all round good bloke - highly recommended.
THIS GUY IS A TOP MAN HE KNOWS HES WRESTLING STUFF, VERY HARD TO GET THIS GUY TO SUBMIT, STRONG BUT A TRUE GENTLEMAN.
CANT WAIT TO GRAPPLE AGAIN....
