Whether it’s coming across a WWE show while flipping channels or binge watching Netflix’s GLOW, chances are you’ve been exposed to professional wrestling at some point in your life.
And with more popular names like The Rock, Stone Cold and John Cena all hailing from America, it’s no surprise that it’s often regarded as a predominantly western activity.
What most people don’t know, however, is that Singapore has a small-but-passionate pro wrestling community of its own, and if the sound of that piques your interest you can actually catch them live in action at the Enter The Ring event that’s happening tomorrow.

Put A Ring On It

Considering how visual pro wrestling is, it’s probably better to show than tell you how a local match looks like:

The upcoming event is organised by Grapple MAX — over the past 18 months, the pro wrestling collective has organised an impressive 13 shows, including performances at the past two iterations of the Singapore Night Festival.
What sets this particular show apart from the rest, however, is that it’ll take place in a fully-fledged wrestling ring for the first time (thus the name), which quite literally takes the action to another level.
When it comes to the wrestlers themselves, it looks like they’re pulling out all the stops too — performers from Malaysia and Philippines will coming down to fight, and Japanese wrestling legend Dick Togo is set to make a rare appearance as well.
With that said, the true stars of the show are arguably the wrestlers from Grapple MAX itself — these individuals take a significant chunk of time out of their lives to train up to three times a week, and performing in front of a live crowd is a well-deserved culmination of their efforts.
An electrifying crowd, live action you can’t find anywhere else, and watching passionate wrestling fans live out their dreams? Sounds like a pretty good way to spend your Friday night, we’d say.
Advance tickets are still available at Peatix for $35, but if you aren’t ready to commit just yet they’ll also be available at the door for $50.
We’d recommend getting there early, though, because this is one of those times where a front row seat makes a big difference.
