Sketch risks leg to defend title

Colac wrestler Sketch has crammed 12 months of rehabilitation from a broken leg into four months in order to be ready for this weekend’s professional westling event at Colac’s RSL. The night will feature seven fights, with Sketch featuring in the main event.

Colac wrestler Sketch admits he has rushed his return from a broken leg by eight months in order to defend his title as the King of Colac.

Sketch, Colac’s Andrew Clissold, had emergency surgery in March after completely snapping both bones in his right leg at a trampoline park.

He has worked closely with physiotherapists to cram 12 months’ worth of rehabilitation into four months in order to be ready for this weekend’s professional wrestling event at Colac’s RSL.

Sketch will battle Melbourne’s Syd Parker in the main event, putting his leg to the ultimate test in a “tables, ladders and chairs match”.

He conceded he had concerns whether his leg would hold up with the title on the line.

“We’ll be jumping from tables, crashing through chairs, the belt will be hanging above the ring,” Sketch said.

“I do have a lot of concerns, my biggest fear is coming down wrong on the leg, but I’m going to try to avoid that,” he said.
