Not content with white collar boxing, Monmouth MP David Davies has now taken to wrestling.
As you can see in these pictures, he came face to face with two of the star wrestlers from TNA’s Impact Wrestling, which airs on Challenge TV.
In the photo on the left he’s grappling with Mickie James, described by TNA as ‘a multiple-time women’s wrestling World Champion.’ I have to take their word for that – I’m clearly out of my depth here.
In the photo below you can see Davies hoist by 6’3″ ‘grappler’ Magnus. The three met at the City Boxer gym where the Conservative MP regularly trains, apparently.
David Davies is quoted as saying
It was fantastic getting to know Mickie and Magnus.
I have huge respect for these wrestlers. Many young women could learn from Mickie in helping themselves, especially in self-defence.
While Mickie says,
It was amazing to meet such a down-to-earth and fun politician. You wouldn’t see an American congressman doing this!
Magnus joked: “I think there are many MPs who would pay good money for what happened to David today!”
