Former Norwich striker Grant Holt wins 40-man Royal Rumble in wrestling debut

You heard us...

And that’s the bottom line because Grant Holt said so!

The former Norwich forward won a 40-man ‘Royal Rumble’ on wrestling debut this weekend.

Footage shows the 37-year-old being helped back into the ring by an opponent before sending a fellow wrestler flying with a drop kick.

Grant Holt sends one opponent flying over the top rope

For some reason, Holt wore a navy sweater, white polo shirt and black trousers for the bout.

It was his first showing in the World Association of Wrestling, after beginning training back in May.

The Carrow Road hero, who now works as an academy coach at the club, was not due to appear until the Fightmare 3 showpiece in 2019.

But fight bosses decided to wheel him out ahead of schedule – much to the delight of the crowd.

And Holt did not disappoint.
