Weymouth is getting ready to rumble and it's all in the name of charity.
Three local men have organised a Weymouth Charity Wrestling Fight Night which will take place in the Riviera Hotel.
It'll contain five different rounds with professional wrestlers, and one will win the specially created Dorset Championship Title.
The night will feature a Double Main Event, with the first being a No Holds Barred Champion Grudge Match between two former wrestling team mates. The second is a 15 man over-the-top-of-the-rope Rumble.
Robbie Constant, an organiser and contestant, told us why they chose to raise money for the RNLI, "Few years ago when a distant relative was missing, they went really above and beyond trying to find them. And when you speak to any of them the job they do is phenomenal, you know, they're risking their lives every day, and they don't get as much credit as I think they deserve. "
Robbie continued to say he thought the wrestling event would have something for everyone, "I've seen age ranges from 5 to 85. There are a few matches that are quite comedy, some of the villains they do a bit of comedy skits with the kids and everything, and the kids love booing them and, you know, even if you're not a fan you would probably still like it because it is for one of our lifelines (RNLI)".
The event is on the 16th of July, with doors opening at 6.30pm. Tickets cost £5 per person.
