The Teslim Balogun Stadium in Surulere, Lagos has been a beehive of activities since the second edition of BRF Wrestlemania started on Wednesday.
Lovers of wrestling are enjoying the show at the Molade Okoya Thomas Indoor Sports Hall of the Stadium, where Nigerian professional wrestlers are fighting for the 10 title belts at stake.
In the bouts decided yesterday, Tony Destroyers defeated Mr. Kix, Super King beat Silent Tiger and Atom Ant was too much for Flying Danko, while Rushing Belt took Super Rosco to the cleaners.
The fight between Batters’ Brothers and The Grippers was the most entertaining on the night with The Grippers winning the contest. Rocky Johnson beat Iron Scatter in another thrilling bout, while Mighty Man and Big Fish’s fight was cancelled due to Mighty Man’s unprofessional action, as he broke the head of Big Fish with chairs, leaving him in the pools of his blood.
The only female fight of the night was won by Lady Terror as she ‘terrorised’ her opponent, Lady Bunmi to submission in a grudge duel.
Meanwhile, Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola, in whose honour the tournament is being staged, will be the Special Guest of Honour during the closing ceremony tomorrow. The Chairman of Local Organising Committee, LOC, Primate Charles Odugbesi said the Governor will be at the event in company of the wife of former Governor of the state, Senator Oluremi Tinubu and other dignitaries, the Sports Commissioner, Enitan Osodi, Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Ademorin Kuye, his counterpart in the Transports Ministry, Kayode Opeifa, Chairmen of local councils and members of Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN in the State.
