You can STOP choke-slamming your little brother and watch some of the world’s greatest wrestling legends battle it out in the ring right here in Doha. The second edition of Qatar Pro Wrestling (QPW) is set to take place on Friday February 21 and it’s going to be a massive spectacle.
Wrestling legends and superstars will compete for the championship belt in Qatar as fans from the Middle East and North Africa get to watch their favourite heavyweight stars from the United States, France, South Africa, United Kingdom, Canada, Austria and Mexico in the line-up for SUPERSLAM II.
Qatar Pro Wrestling is the first and only professional wrestling association in the Middle East. It was founded in 2013 and ever since then, has been bringing wrestlers from all around the world to partake in large-scale shows throughout the region.
Ali Bin Hamad Al Attiyah (ABHA) Arena will come alive as you witness superstars such as Eric Bischoff (the new general manager, best known for serving as executive producer and later as president of World Championship Wrestling), The Great Khali, Kevin Nash and Mark Henry together with WWE legends Alberto del Rio, Rob Van Dam, PJ Black, Brian Cage, nZo, Matt Sydal, Rich Swann, Chris Raaber, Alofa, Caprice Coleman, Brian Pillman Jr, Apolo, Carlito, Chris Masters,
Matt Cross, Johnny Storm, Jody Fleisch and Mil Muertes.
The QPW World Title Championship is currently held by Alberto del Rio, a Mexican American professional wrestler.
SUPERSLAM II will present four championship title matches – The QPW Tag Team, QPW King of Ladder, the QPW Middle East and the QPW World Titles. The audience will get to enjoy a number of single matches in between the title games. The last time the championship took place (in 2017), the event was completely sold out and it’s totally okay to expect 2020 to be bigger and better.
If you’re a wrestling fan, you’ll most definitely have an unforgettable experience in the midst of thousands of spectators and the variety of the matches.
Ali Ahmad Al Marafi, chairman of QPW, says, “This is one of the biggest events of the year. We are looking forward to hosting this slate of international wrestling superstars. This is going to be an extraordinary competition for the fans of this sport in the entire region, with so many legends in one place and special guest appearances.”
You can watch the game live from the comfort of your home via Fite TV for a subscription fee, but you’d be crazy not to catch this legendary sporting spectacle live this month end.
