Wrestler grapples with hearing problem
A deaf wrestler will appear in a television documentary this evening on how he is becoming a positive role
Sean Midnight, who has been deaf from birth and uses sign language to communicate, is one of the stars of
Bedfordshire-based Power Trip Wrestling (PTW).
Youth worker Sean, 21, features on BSL Zone, a programme for Sky Digital’s
‘The Community Channel’ at 8pm.
The programme-makers were invited by PTW founder Peter Staniforth to attend a wrestling event at Houghton
Regis Memorial Hall on March 14.
They filmed Sean’s match, and interviewed him for the programme.
one of the few deaf wrestlers in the industry, said: “That was a big opportunity for me to appear on their television
programme, and one that I am very grateful for.
“Working for Power Trip Wrestling has been great for me, and
lots of fun.
"It is the best promotion that I ever have worked for. I think this is because of the lovely Luton fans, and
also because of Peter Staniforth who always given me the opportunity to be here, and to wrestle. Sadly, a lot of wrestling
promotions won’t book me, and I believe that this happens because my deafness, and the communication issues. I do feel
that they do discriminate against the deaf, or people with disabilities. “I would love to wrestle for as many wrestling
promotions as I can, so that I can represent the deaf community positively, and deaf people in the UK in general.”
