This Sunday's Summer Wrestling Spectacular Brings A New Main-Eventer To Brighton Centre

Wrestling fans are getting ready to rumble at the weekend when the Brighton Centre stages its first summer grappling spectacular for 16 years.
Robbie Brookside In Action

And top UK matchmakers Premier Promotions, whose previous shows have drawn packed houses during the winter months, are pulling out all the stops after scheduled main-eventers The UK Pitbulls were forced to pull out of Sunday's (July 13) star-spangled afternoon bonanza.

They have added Britain's biggest crowd-puller, Liverpool Lad and TV wrestling star Robbie Brookside, to the line-up, plus Viking Warrior Crazy Horse, thrown in a six-man survivor tag team clash, and the climax to the programme will now be an all-in, last-man-standing American Rumble to crown the King of the Ring.

Among the other stars in action will be heavyweight champion Martin Stone and his manager, "The Twisted Genius" Dean Ayass, "Wonder Kid" Jonny Storm, Black Country giant Dave Moralaz, the Young Wrestler of the Year Joel Redman and Brighton's own Barry Cooper, the reigning PWF welterweight champion.

The Pitbulls have been hit by a serious injury to Dave Waters, one half of the tag team goliaths and have cancelled all their wrestling engagements after he shattered his knee while competing in a strong man event last weekend.


Sunday's show starts at 3pm. For tickets contact the box office on 0844 847 1515 or book on-line at www.brightoncentre.co.uk
