Norwood Mania Wrestling Event in Harwich
Tuesday, 3rd Sep 2019 09:49

Town striker James Norwood’s first foray into the world of wrestling - aside from his famed goal celebration GIFs - will take place in Harwich on Wednesday 18th September.

Norwood Mania is being organised by the International Pro Wrestling League and takes place at the Kingsway Hall in Harwich (6.30pm doors, 7pm bell).

The event, which features six live matches and a raffle, is raising money for Cancer Research with further information and tickets available here.

The striker, whose wrestling-themed celebration GIFs have gained international attention this season, explained how Norwood Mania came about when speaking on the Sky Sports WWE Lock Up podcast last week.

“I've been invited onto a wrestling show as a guest enforcer in a couple of weeks," he said.

"Somebody came to me and said they would put on an event for a charity of my choice and I said I'd love to do it for Cancer Research. He said we can do 10 matches and it would be somewhere near Ipswich.”

Is he going to get in the ring and do wrestling? If so utter madness, will end in tears, surely the club will not allow this to happen!

Calm down folks, enforcers are common in the entertainment but don’t get involved in the wrestling physically.

Jesus wept, not this again.

He will not be wrestling. An "enforcer" just follows a wrestler to the ring, ponces about and winds the crowd up etc. The club are not going to allow him to put himself in harms way.

That solves the mystery of Jonathan Douglas's role for us.... He was a 'football enforcer'
