Ring the bell! It looks as though our supporters just got a whole lot tougher! We here at Forever Manchester would like to say thanks and welcome to our newest supporters: FutureShock Wrestling!
As Manchester’s only home-grown professional wrestling promotions company, FutureShock are keen to support community activity in the city that’s given them so much. The guys have already been hard at work and have raised £400 through bucket collections at their shows and a video launch event back in September. They even nominated wrestler (and self-proclaimed ambassador) Xander Cooper to go into our Halloween Lockdown last year.
With shows in Stockport, Prestwich and the city centre, the organisation prides itself on running family-friendly events, bringing excitement to fans of all ages. The FutureShock Academy is also one of the few full-time pro wrestling schools in the UK, bringing through and nurturing the local superstars of tomorrow. Owner and promoter Chris Brooker said: “Ever since day one FutureShock has been all about showing the world just how great the wrestlers and fans are right here in Manchester. We owe so much to the city and the people that have made everything we’ve achieved possible. Getting a chance to help folk in and around this city? That’s an opportunity we couldn’t say no to.”
If you’d like to go and experience the thrills of professional wrestling while raising money to support community activity right here in Manchester, tickets and information on their upcoming events can be found on their website. Also be sure to follow them on Twitter at @FutureShockWres and find them on Facebook.
