In the weeks leading up to the UK's most important comic book & movie convention in London, Kapow! created by Mark Millar, 'Wossy' (Jonathan Ross) had been secretly working with Super Lucha trainers, Greg Burridge & Garry Vanderhorne of Lucha Britannia & the London School of Lucha Libre.
"Jonathan is a natural!" Said Burridge.
"We didnt have a lot of time to train him but he instinctually knew where to go & what to do. We made sure he could do everything that was needed for the angle he was in to look great & be safe.
There were hundreds of people screaming out & cheering for him as he stood up for the comic book fraternity & surprisingly took on the massive Lucha Britannia bully, Estupido"
"Jonathan knows all about drama, audience manipulation, crowd work, ad-libbing & comedy timing. That's why he's been at the top of his game in television for so many years!
We put him through a lot of stretching & warm ups, rolling & tumbling, jumping & bumping, psychology & selling.
For a guy in his fifties, he can really move well & we hope to be working with him much more in the coming months as he is going to be an integral force in getting British wrestling back on prime-time television.
I dont think anyone expected to see Jonathan Ross leaping from the top rope, delivering an impressive clothes line, take a beating & then knock Estupido down the way he did!
Were very proud of him"
The London School of Lucha Libre have also put a Loaded magazine journalist through the mill & surprisingly more & more actors, dancers, performers, circus people & burlesque folk are coming in for training.
One of the guys used his new Lucha skills last year in an amazing touring performance of Macbeth & is now in the west end in smash hit Warhorse!
