Review: Vice’s The British Wrestler

Friday 19 October 2012
Words Spindle

The British Wrestler is a VICE film documenting the raucous, underground wrestling scene in the UK, following unlikely hero and YouTube wrestling-ring sensation Grado on his journey from small-time, comedic internet star to becoming a headline act at the ICW. 

And what better way to celebrate the launch of the film than with a live wrestling match from Grado himself? In true VICE style the riotous screaming fans from the film were emulated by the crowd at The British Wrestler launch party at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club. Lots of drinking, lots of shouting, barbed wire, stapler guns and drills.. We couldn’t have had a better night!
