A ‘death match’ in which two blood-soaked wrestlers attacked each other with a garden trimmer and glass in front of children is under investigation by the police.

Gruesome footage shows the horror fight between wrestlers Ronnie Thatcher and Blizzard that took place on April 29 at the Seaham Conservative Club in County Durham.

Children can be seen in shock as blood trickles down the wrestlers as they beat each other with glass lighting tubes and wooden sticks.

The Colliery Championship Wrestling event was billed as a “Pits of Punishment” fight and offered a family discount for parents who wanted to bring their kids.

But audience members were left open-mouthed and gasping, some even moving away from the violence and trying to get to the back of the room.

One of the wrestlers has since admitted to ‘going overboard’ – but is tired of apologizing.

Although the event organizers have confirmed that “there will be no repeat” of what happened.

Promoter James Barrass claimed the wrestlers only suffered from “some scratches here and there.”

Billed as a “Pits of Punishment” fight between wrestlers Ronnie Thatcher and Blizzard, the Colliery Championship Wrestling event offered a family discount for parents who wanted to bring their kids along.

Today a spokesman for the Durham Constabulary said: ‘We are working with the Durham County Council licensing team after local authorities received a number of complaints regarding an event at the Seaham Conservative Club on 29 April. The investigation is still ongoing.’

It comes as Teesside-based wrestler Benji denounced the violence that took place in front of children as he shared some of the footage online.

He said, ‘Please don’t do death matches in a family-friendly show. There is a time and place and this is definitely not it.

“Families and venues don’t see company names, they only see ”The Wrestling”, this is not what we need.”

He continued: “The videos I saw there was of a mother shielding their child’s face as glass and blood went everywhere.

“They got lucky this time and the wrestlers got only cuts and bruises, but what if the untrained cowboys lost an eye or worse.

“CCW didn’t hold their hands up, they said the fans liked it, the crowd didn’t mind and the wrestlers got to work and it got out of hand… Still they want to play 18+ death matches.”

However, one of the wrestlers, Ronnie Thatcher, has since posted a video to Facebook saying he is “f****** sick of apologizing” about the event.

He said, “I’ve apologized and apologized, countless times right. How many more times do I have to apologize?

CCW has promised that this will never happen again. Blizzard and I went overboard, we understand, we apologized.

‘We can apologize until we’re blue in the face, is it going to change everyone’s mind? No why? Because some people think that they are perfect, that they have done nothing wrong in their life.

“This was a bit of a dark game, a bit unsanctioned, a bit out of my hands, I wanted you to fight, we knew what it was.

“What I’ve said is in the life we ​​live, we learn and we move on. We don’t always get it right, and if we do, how will we ever learn?

“I don’t want to hang out with people like that, I want to hang out with people who raise their hands and say they’ve made a mistake. I don’t want two shoes hanging around me.’

He told the BBC: ‘The [wrestlers] was taken care of behind the scenes. A few scratches here and there,’ he said.

Blizzard was having breakfast with his girlfriend the next day. He said getting a new tattoo hurt him more.”

The wrestling group has now posted a message on Facebook confirming that no more similar events will be held.

“The match was intended to be a door-to-door game, with both men taking it upon themselves to take things to another level. We apologize to anyone who may have upset this and will make sure it never happens again.

“We’re very sorry, and all we can do is make things right.”
