First they had a game fight, then a fight of words: javelin stars Peter Wright and Adrian Lewis insulted each other – then they were teased by the javelin club.
Former World Darts champions Adrian Lewis (2011, 2013) and Peter Wright (2020) delivered the real thriller at the finals of the Ladbrooks Players’ Championship in Minehead (England). In the end, the latter won 6: 5. Louis then leveled harsh accusations at his opponent during the handshake.
The referee went inside and wanted to separate the two players. It only worked to a certain extent, so the security staff had to be called. But that did not end there: the controversy erupted again when Lewis tried to provoke his opponent. Wright then waved and walked away.
PDC makes fun of darts players
He took it jokingly and then said: “We discussed who should send the first Christmas card. He said, ‘This is my turn, I, this is his turn.’ The opponent did not react so coolly. He wrote on Twitter: “You are nothing but a cheater.”
And it went on and on: “He told me it was a loose board and he had found it. My answer to him was: You brought me out of my rhythm.” As for Wright, the matter was settled, and he even found words of praise: “Adrian is a great player. He’s not a double world champion at all.”
The Darts World Association, PDC, jokingly gained independence: it released a supposedly Christmas card from both of them on Twitter based on Wright’s quote. It was also written “Available soon”. “I buy them,” Lewis commented.
