Summer Starts Here! Worthing Wrestling Spectaculars Feature Cream Of Grappling Crop

Some of the biggest names in the grappling game will be in action during the summer season of Wrestling Spectaculars at the Worthing Assembly Hall.
Doug Williams Makes Rare UK Appearance

The six-week run of Thursday night shows kicks off on July 31 with an increasingly rare British appearance by the reigning PWF heavyweight champion Doug Williams.

Williams, who already spends six months of the year in Japan, has just signed a deal to wrestle for top American federation TNA, making him one of wrestling's biggest global stars.

The five-times Wrestler of the Year now has only two Worthing dates this year, one of them on the opening night of the season on July 31.

The line-up for the summer features the Worthing Trophy knockout tournament, the Rumblemania Trophy and a new event showcasing British wrestling's best young talent.

Among the big names battling it out for the blue riband event will be the European Inter-Continental heavyweight champion from Germany, Christian Eckstein, British title-holder Martin Stone, top Irish star Eamonn O'Neill, former world cup contender Kerry Cabrero, power-packed local star James Tighe and the Young Wrestler of the Year Joel Redman.

Other top stars who will be appearing during the season include the "Wonder Kid" Jonny Storm, Spanish star The Bull and ring legend Johnny Kidd.

The shows run every week until September 4, and among the feature bouts will be a clash between Martin Stone and Brighton's Barry Cooper.

Stone's manager, Dean Ayass, the man known as "The Twisted Genius," is also from Brighton and issued a challenge to Cooper at the recent
Brighton Centre show.

The showdown between Stone and Cooper, with Ayass no doubt getting involved, is set for August 7.


The action every week starts at 7.45. To book tickets, including special reserved ringside seats, contact the box office on 01903 206206 or you can book on line at worthingtheatres.co.uk
