Video of the Snake Pit Wigan International Catch Wrestling Tournament

Saturday November 10th 2012 marked the first Catch Wrestling tournament held in Wigan in 50 years! The tournament was hosted by the Snake Pit Wigan and was held at Robin Park Arena.  The commentator for the matches is coach Roy Wood of the Snake Pit Wigan

I, Dr. Raul Ramirez, qualified for a match.  My match was against a strong Catch wrestler, Stephen Greenfield, from Wales.  One of the best part parts of the tournament was watching the excitement of the spectators, especially the senior citizens.  These seniors grew up watching Catch matches in their youth and they told coach Roy Wood that they were very happy to see “proper wrestling” again.  I am happy and proud to have been a part of the revival of “proper wrestling.”   


  1. Woo hoo! Way to go. Did the students coach each other for these matches?
