More than 30 wrestlers will enter the squared circle at St. Finbar on Feb. 5. Here are some of the notable grapplers to keep an eye on:

Brian Myers

An eight-year veteran of World Wrestling Entertainment, and Five Borough Wrestling’s current reigning champ, Brian Myers is an unstoppable warrior of righteousness. He will defend his title from his quintessential anti-hero (and his one-time friend) Kevin Matthews in the upcoming title match. His signature move is the Spear, a sprinting shoulder tackle capable of stunning his Standing Tall opponents, and destroying lesser men.

Kevin Matthews

Once loathed by wrestling fans, Kevin Matthews reveled in their disdain and flung it back in their face with a flurry of obscene gestures, which ironically won their applause and approval. Now this Bay Ridge bruiser is poised to unseat his one-time friend Brian Myers from his position as Five Borough Wrestling’s World Title champ. Matthew’s signature move is the Ego Driver, a modified pile-driver in which he drops his hapless opponent brutally onto his knees.

Rude Boy Riley

A born crowd pleaser, Riley can be accurately described as a pretty-boy — just not to his face! The Staten Island stallion lives to hype up the crowd. Riley’s go-to move is a body toss that sends his opponent flying into the air, only to land head-first on the pretty-boy’s knee.

The Greek God Papa Don

Papa Don may not be a god, but he is Greek and he is definitely a bad guy. Reviled by wrestling fans for his ostentatious entrances, Papa Don commands his audiences to bow down before his magnificence — but he usually only gets booed. The Don’s signature move is the Shining Wizard, which consists of kicking his opponents in the stomach, which drops them to their knees and sets them up for a running, off-the-rope kick to the face.
