This Friday was my debut at Lucha Britannia.
As far as I’m concerned, London School of Lucha Libre is the greatest wrestling school in Europe and Lucha Britannia is the greatest regular wrestling show (even though it’s technically a caberet night) in Europe, too.
Having been a student of LSLL for over two years, being put on their card – which only happens when they deem you read – is a massive deal for me. Massive.
For my tag partner, who has been documenting his rise to pro wrestling for over two years, this was an equally big deal. In fact, as his overall pro wrestling debut – it was an even more monumental event!
So it was that, to a sold out Resistance Gallery packed full of our friends, family and colleagues, we both made our Lucha Britannia debut – and didn’t fuck it up!
I’m now faced with that bizarre feeling. A feeling that something has come to an end when, really, it’s just the beginning. I know that sounds lame and contrived, but I’ve wanted to be on this show for so long that I never looked beyond what would happen when I finally made it on…
I guess now I start to learn!
