 Winnipeg church turns to wrestling


Christianity and wrestling have more in common than you may think, says Winnipeg Christian wrestling promoter Louis Hendrickson.

Following a traditional church service yesterday at St. Philip's Anglican Church with hymns and prayers led by priest Brian Flowers, members of the mostly-elderly congregation were treated to a wrestling match in the basement.

"My goal is to entertain them with the wrestling show while sending them the message that God and Jesus is important," said Hendrickson, the born-again Christian wrestling promoter known to local rasslin' fans as Lawrence Fozzworth III.

Others in the church were equally enthusiastic about the wrestling mini-card, held in the hundred-year-old church basement.

"I'd love to see more youth here, and maybe this will bring them back," said 29-year-old Christy Bettess, a member at St. Philip's and the former youth group leader. "Our youth group closed down two years after all the youth grew up. Now it's mostly an older congregation."
