Many think wrestling is on the decline, yet the sport still draws crowds.

First viewed on cable television in the 1980s, professional wrestling began appearing in powerful media outlets, reaching never before seen numbers of viewers.

It became an international phenomenon with the expansion of the World Wrestling Federation (WWF).

WWF inspired a generation to follow in the footsteps of John Cena and other wrestling greats.

West Lynn sports club is proof enough that the sport is very much alive (and kicking-violently) as the venue was jam packed on Saturday night, with spectators even watching from the corridor.

Falling Starr Wrestling's show saw Lynn's favourite wrestling stars battle it out in the ring.

The sport has made a roaring comeback since lockdown, with many travelling from all over West Norfolk.

One spectator said: "I came here to see PVC, here's hoping he will win."

Another came to see Sassy Bear Clarence, a regular on the wrestling circuit.

She said: "I have seen Sassy Bear at Lynnsport many times, I love his costume and he's lovely out of the ring my son's had a few pictures with him."

Sassy Bear Clarence began the night with a win in his signature pink legwarmers and pants, emblazoned with his name.

He defeated Mitch Basher, who was teamed with Downham's bad boy Crowley.

The crowd cheered with enthusiasm as Basher was pinned down.

The atmosphere was alive, beer filled, and smelled strongly of deep heat- giving one a nostalgic feeling reminiscent of pre-covid times, or even the 80's.

Next was a tag-team effort from The Disaster Artists against the Streets or Rage.

There were moments where it wasn't clear who was going to win, as PVC took a pummelling from his opponent.

The match was won after a surprise turnaround from Disaster Artists, who were clearly the crowd favourites.

George Rashwood and Bobby Adams were then up in the ring, and battled it out for a tense twenty minutes.

After some impressive acrobatics from both men, Rashwood ended up the victor.

He then sat cross-legged in the ring and addressed the audience.

He said: "Last show I got put through a table and the video got 20K views.

"There were never so many eyes on this club.

"But I don't get on the posters and I wasn't at Lynnsport- watch this space to see what I'm going to do next."

Blood was spilled in a brutal battle between Semtex and RKJ, dressed in gold and definitely adding some Christmas sparkle to the ring.

The night ended on a high with two teams jumping into the ring.

Team J-Den Scar which included Scar, Pitbulls,Jacob King and Joey Garcia clashed fists with Team CW Davies including CW,NLP,Swede,Sean Stone.

The Bulk, impressive in his leotard and intimidating from his sheer size- showed the crowd what he could do as he slapped an opponent down with his fist.

The fight had the audience on their toes as it once again the winner wasn't clear, which is one of the great things about the sport.
