Wrasslin’ madness abounds, as World Wrestling Entertainment’s Smackdown and RAW events hit Glasgow. They’re sold out already, but the Pavilion Theatre is tagging itself into the ring with a night of American Wrestling in between. Gone are the days of fat men resembling oversized babies in ill-fitting leotards, theatrically tumbling to the canvas on Saturday tea-time television. Even the bleached-blond overwrought drama of Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior is passé - now it’s brawny, athletic superheroes and nimble, lissome divas playing it real, and real hard, dude.
WWE Survivor Series, Braehead Arena, Glasgow, Wed 8 & Wed 15 Nov. American Wrestling, Pavilion Theatre, Glasgow, Mon 13 Nov.
