1. Photographer Daniel Patrick Lilley likes to cheer for the underdog.

    As a kid in Southampton, England, he often watched World Wrestling Federation matches on TV and was a fan of the Triple H, a menacing anti-hero.

    "I’ve always rooted for the bad one," he says.

    Fast forward to 2010, when Lilley was able to revisit his curiosity for this action-packed genre — this time not as a fan but as a photographer.

    According to Lilley, wrestling in England is waning in popularity. In fact, he says he thinks wresting itself is somewhat of an underdog in the sports and entertainment world.

    "[This] is part of what drew me to this project," he says. "Nobody that does it now makes any money … They all do it for the love."
