A wrestling mad couple have tied the knot in a full size wrestling ring in front of crowds of friends and family cheering them on.

Mike Belcaster, 24, proposed to his girlfriend Nicole after eight years together - but Mike had big plans for their day.

The wrestling enthusiast arranged for special tickets for their guest for 'The Main Event', composed unique entrance music and lighting for them both and had the special ceremony conducted in the ring while their guests sat in the stands.

The newlyweds, who both work for Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan's new wrestling company Resistance Pro, tied the knot on November 3.

Nicole, 24, sells merchandise at shows while Mike is the time-keeper for the bouts.

Nicole, from Chicago, USA, said: "It was a really special day - I can't believe it all turned out so amazing and it's a day all of us will definitely remember for a long time.

"Mike has loved wrestling since he was about two-years-old so it was like a dream come true for him.

"I never thought I would get married inside a wrestling ring but it's something we both love so I couldn't be happier with how the day went."

Mike, who met Nicole while he was working in a bar next to a restaurant she was working in, proposed to her four months ago.

He said: "It was one of coolest feelings you can have as a wrestling fan.

"We used the belts, the lights, music - everything. To top it off with the ring was amazing.

"Our parents were all so excited, they know the passion we have for wrestling so it was great to see it all go off so well."
