On Saturday, a Conference North match between Worcester City and Stockport County devolved into backyard wrestling when former Pakistan international Shabir Khan body slammed Charlie Russell in response to a reckless challenge. Khan was shown a red card for the slam and Russell was shown a yellow for the tackle. But this was only the beginning of the English football’s tribute weekend to the WWE, though.
On Sunday, a Southampton steward demonstrated his own technique when a Liverpool fan invaded the pitch while the visiting team celebrated a goal in the 2-0 win.
Khan and the steward will now go on to face each other at Wrestlemania for the National Football Wrestling Championship Belt.
