Ahead of Friday night’s ‘Body Slams to Cancer’, former Lincoln Fight Factory Wrestling Champion and event organizer, Dutch, took a break from grappling to sit down to talk to Linc Sport about his schools upcoming charity event.
Dutch is a Goliath of a man, easily able to lift any person within the building up and slam them to the mat with ease.
Sat next to him was Rebecca Loeve, the school’s co-owner, herself currently training in the arts of body slams and bumps.
‘Body Slams to Cancer’ is raising money for St Barnabas Hospice and Cancer Research UK.
“All the wrestlers are working for free, all the wages are going into the pot, as are the security guys, the band and first aid team. Everyone’s wages are going into the pot,” said Dutch.
Featuring more matches than you can swing a steel chair at, the show not only pleases in the charity department, but also with an incredible match card.
As a Linc Sport exclusive, Dutch announced that Caz Crash would compete against SC Supreme in a showcase match up.
“I put that one on as a fan, because I want to see that match,” he said.
With Dutch anticipating greatness, it can be guaranteed that the match is going to be a classic.
Furthermore, Annie May and Leah Heart face off to crown the organisations first ladies champion.
“The plan is to make the lady’s event as important as the men’s event. In my opinion there’s a place for them. The focus on women’s wrestling is certainly a welcomed addition to the show.”
One of the highlights of the night is a rumble to determine the winner of the Dee Mansell Charity Memorial Cup – a cup dedicated to Dutch’s mother, who passed away due to cancer earlier this year.
Finally, Dutch himself will be competing against ‘Untouchable’ Will Jackson as he attempts to reclaim his title from his conniving rival in a no holds barred match.
Dutch is also involved in the rumble, leaving him wondering what his main focus will be.
“Do I focus on the trophy, or do I focus on the title that I lost a few weeks ago and to try and get that back, because I want both.”
