|Watch out for more pics of Chris Tyler on this blog next week.|
Friday, August 26, 2016
Thanks to blog reader David M. for sharing these photos of British wrestler Chris Tyler culled from various sites online. I've only featured Tyler once; he was one of several wrestlers in a recent Body Shots : In The Ring feature and I'm wondering how this guy escaped my attention all these years. Tyler has been wrestling for various promotions in the UK since his debut in 2011. I tried doing research on his statistics, but couldn't find anything. I'm not sure exactly how old he is, but based on an interview he gave The British Wrestling Revival Blog back in 2013, Tyler says he wanted to be a wrestler when he "was 10 years old (yes, that was in 2006)" which would make him 20 years old today (that means he started wrestling professionally at age 15!). You can watch him in action here and here. By the way, if you're wondering about the title of this post, it's a reference to another young British wrestler, Tyler Bate. You see, I was originally going to do a post on 19 year old Bate, but then I saw the pics of this Tyler and decided to go with him instead. Not that he's better or anything, but it's always fun to showcase a new face here on BCoW. I would love to see the millennial Tylers go up against each other some day; wouldn't you?
