“It’s not about how hard you get hit, it’s about how much you can get paid to get hit and how quickly you can bank the cash” - The Ginger Ninja

Since its debut in the summer of 2020, Wrestling with The Champ has quickly established itself as THE laugh-out-loud sports comedy podcast for wrestling fans. Follow the outrageous adventures of the Ginger Ninja, and his manager, through the murky world of the Pub Wrestling Federation in this no-holds-barred sports podcast turned live comedy show.

Meet the hosts

Meet the 35-time champion of the Pub Wrestling Federation. He doesn't pull punches but he does pull pints, and drinks them mid-match. Up for a fight, day or night.

Meet the Champ's long-suffering manager. When life feels like Armageddon, Damien keeps egos in check and boots on the canvas... Not always, but he does his best.

Upcoming show

The Free Fringe at Edinburgh Fringe Festival

The Ginger Ninja heads back to Scotland this summer for a second run of shows at the world's largest arts festival. Are you ready for Smiledriver?

Dates coming soon



Comedy you shouldn't miss


Brilliant! I was worried I wasn't going to like it, but the show was just as funny as Stewart Lee

The show really captures the spirit of a lot of wrestlers I know - for better and for worse!
