The first Qatar Pro Wrestling (QPW) world championship will be held at Hyatt Plaza, Doha, from October 3 to 5.
The event, organised by QPW in co-operation with Hyatt Plaza and Global Entertainments, will feature well-known wrestlers such as Bobby Lashley and Carlito, among others.
“With exceptional wrestlers coming from all over the world, QPW championship will be an action-packed and memorable event for wrestling lovers in our country,” QPW founder-chairman Ali al-Marafia said while speaking to the local media yesterday. He added that the championship would combine Western and Oriental wrestling concepts in a single event, thereby creating a unique wrestling championship for the first time in the history of the Middle East.
The QPW championship will take place in the spacious tent at Hyatt Plaza. “Wrestling is a sport enjoyed by kids and adults alike and we believe that our efforts will play an important role in promoting Qatar as a destination for unique international events,” said Feroz Moideen, general manager of Hyatt Plaza.
The event is being supported by Global Entertainments, which is committed to organising world-class events in Qatar. “Our expert team has built the tent at Hyatt Plaza with the objective of bringing various high-quality events from all over the world. We are glad to host this event inside the tent and are confident that the venue for the QPW world championship conforms to the highest international safety and quality standards,” Dr Akef Hussein said on behalf of Global Entertainments.
The three-day series will feature popular wrestlers such as Lashley, Carlito, Big V, Alofa, Chris Raaber, Chris Master, Michael Kovac, Johnny Moss, Rene Dupree, Shehab al-Mossa and Matt Cross.
QPW has appointed the former CEO and founder of event management firm Golden Relations, Bilal Taha, as the championship’s co-ordinator and adviser.
Carlito, who weighs 100kg and is 5ft 10inches tall, made a special appearance at yesterday’s event. He is best known for his work with World Wrestling Council and World Wrestling Entertainment RAW.
The QPW world title belt was also unveiled during the event. The wrestlers would have to go through numerous rounds over the three days to win the belt.
The belt is currently on display at Hyatt Plaza, giving all wrestling fans the opportunity to have a closer look at the coveted title.
The preliminary rounds will be held on October 3 and 4, followed by the finals on October 5. Tickets are available at Virgin Megastore and can also be bought online at www.virginmegastore.me
