Tyler Who?

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?

Watch out for more pics of Chris Tyler on this blog next week.


  1. Mmmmm ... love this young nubile British slab of meat.

    HOPE. That Bruno won't interpret the lack of comments on Chris Tyler as a lack of interest or, God forbid, disapproval. I love the post.
    CONJECTURE. The UK audiences seem to prefer men of Tyler's age, physical stature, and overall benign appearance. I base this guess only on years of experience enjoying UK wrestling and not on any scientifically conducted statistical analysis.
    QUESTION. Asked several times with no answer forthcoming. Observed phenomenon in all but 2 matches over a period of time in nwhich I watched at the very least 10,00l matches. In the ring whenever the wrestlers appear to be taking each other's measure, they circle the mat COUNTERCLOCKWISE. Why counterclockwise? If you don't know fer shore, comment a guess. I am old now, and I plead that you not send me ignorant to my grave. TT

    1. That's a racist question.

      Shame on you!

    2. Do they go clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere? Anon.

    3. Racist? How so?

      Southern Hemisphere wrestlers also go counter to the hands of a clock.
