If you are having a tough time understanding what exactly it is, then take a look at the video:
Rather than eating gravy, contestants wrestle in gravy! Yes, you heard it right! This is a wrestling challenge where people wrestle in an arena filled with gravy. You must be wondering, what exactly is this gravy that people are wrestling in, let us fill you in. Don't mistake it for the masaledar desi gravy, the championship uses the British version of gravy. The gravy is prepared from meat stock, thickened with flour and seasoned with salt and pepper. It is traditionally served with meatloaf, biscuits (a variety of baked bread), mashed potatoes, etc.
The World Gravy Wrestling Championship is deemed as "one of the world's craziest culinary competitions". After a two-year pause because of the pandemic, the Championship has started again this year. The championship takes place in Lancashire, UK and it aims at raising money for the local hospice. People come to compete in a two-minute, gravy-filled wrestle. The championship evaluates each contestant's performance based on their fancy costume, comedy and wrestling skills.
