Wrestling stars set for ring return
7:00am Sunday 3rd June 2012 in News
A FAMILY “sporting pantomime” is set to takeover Grays Civic Hall once more.
Elvis-loving Rocker Richards, pictured, Richard Parliament, and tag-team duo the Executives are amongst some of the characters bound for the ring on June 6 in a wrestling extravaganza.
Britain’s busiest professional wrestling promotion, LDN, are bringing their brand of the sport to the borough and promoter Sanjay Bagga is expecting another rip-roaring evening of entertainment for all the family.
He said: “We make no bones about the fact that wrestling is a show. I like to call it sporting pantomime.
“It’s genuinely athletic and gruelling for our performers and there are sometimes real injuries, but ultimately we’re there to entertain the audience.
“The beauty of LDN’s shows is that we have something for all ages: interactive fun for the children, hard-hitting action for fans of US-style wrestling, and nostalgia for older fans who remember classic World of Sport era British wrestling.”
Ricky Martin, who starred in the 2012 series of The Apprentice, is just one of the outlandish characters who tour the country with the LDN Wrestling company.
The showpiece event this time round is a title bout between 26-year-old LDN British heavyweight champion Lee Travis.
He is being challenged by 30-stone giant Barbarian Karl Krammer.
Tickets start at £10, with a family ticket £35. Doors open at 7pm with the first bout at 7.30pm. Call 01621 890153.
