WWE: Weddings, wrestling and engagements
|NEWS - VIDEOGAME NEWS|
Survivor series. Wrestlemania. And now...a wedding?...
World Wrestling Entertainment may be more synonymous with punches, kicks and ruthless body slamming, but it has also managed, for one night only, to take on the unlikely role of Cupid.
As Amy Foster decided to host a wrestling themed party to try to win a competition, she had no idea the best knockout blow of the night would actually come from her boyfriend Joe McGregor, who got down on one knee to perform the deadly ‘proposal’ move. Loved-up Joe was dressed as wrestling star John Cena as he popped the question to his understandably surprised girlfriend of eight years Amy, who was wearing an AJ Lee costume. Civil servant Amy, 28, of Sheffield said: “In the world of wrestling, AJ proposed to several people over the last few months including Cena.
“So I thought it would be funny if we dressed up as a wrestling couple – little did I know what Joe had up his sleeve. I almost fainted when he proposed to me. It was the most romantic moment of my life. Joe has always loved wrestling and he got me into it. My biggest dream is that one of them will turn up at the wedding.”
As friends and family looked on, the wrestling-mad pair confirmed their love for each other as Amy hit back with a resounding yes. They had held the party to try to win a competition to meet their favourite stars, run in conjunction with new wrestling game WWE13. But evidently the party theme is not what the night will be remembered for.
She said: “As soon as Joe got down on one knee, all thoughts of the competition were gone from my mind. He’s the best prize I could ever ask for – he’s my wrestling champion.”
Bricklayer Joe, 25, and Amy, who have a three-year-old daughter, will wed on October 26, 2013 – to coincide with the World Wrestling Entertainment tour to Britain. Now all everyone can hope is that their relationship is settled in the church, and that the ring won’t be necessary.
