Josh O’Sullivan and Jonathan Roche , aka ‘NBK’, from Tralee will be taking part in the Summerbrawl wrestling event in Horan’s this August.

TWO Tralee wrestlers are hoping for a packed hometown crowd when they part in ‘Summerbrawl’ this August.

Josh O’Sullivan (26) from Ballyrickard and Jonathan Roche from Spa Road are better known in wrestling circles as ‘NBK’ (Natural Born Killers).

They are part of the Celtic Championship Wrestling show which will arrive in Horan’s Nightclub on this August 17 as part of its Irish Summer Tour. This will be the second annual Summerbrawl event and its very first time in Kerry.

But how did they get involved in wrestling?

“We used to watch it growing up on Sky and we loved it,” Josh told

“We wanted to get involved and looked for a school to train in but they were all in Dublin. Then we found the Celtic Pro Academy in Cork a year ago and we’ve been going up there since,” said Josh, who said NBK started taking part in public bouts back in November.

Is it tough preparing for the shows?

“Yeah, we train five days a week. You have to push yourself and look after your diet. We also have to make sure we don’t seriously injure ourselves or the opponents during the bouts,” he said.

The lads perform in shows in the south of the country and in Cork city but they’re really looking forward to the Tralee date.

“It’s going to be massive. Being in front of your family and friends shouting for you will really get the adrenalin going so we’re looking forward to it,” said Josh.

According to promoters, NBK are the future of tag team wrestling in CCW so the home crowd are in for a treat.

Promoters are promising the show will feature the best wrestling talent from all over Europe including CCW Heavyweight Champion JC Williams who has faced International stars such as Drew McIntyre (WWE)  and Marcus Louis (NXT) in the past.

Doors will open at 6.30pm, with bell-time at 7pm. There will be a full bar service available on the night.
