Women’s wrestling to be staged in Peacehaven


The girls are coming to Peacehaven when big-time wrestling returns to the Meridian Centre next week by public demand.

The big Saturday night show on October 19, in aid of the mayor’s charity appeal, will feature for the first time in Peacehaven a special ladies’ match between two of the ring’s top international stars.

Girl grapplers Erin Angel, a former Young Wrestler of the Year who is known as wrestling’s “Little Miss Dynamite,” and Ireland’s Rhia O’Reilly are set to clash in one of the top of the bill matches.

Erin has recently returned from a triumphant tour of Canada, where she appeared for former WWE star Rene Dupree’s Atlantic Grand Prix promotion, during which she wrestled in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island and clashed with top Canadian star She Nay Nay.

Rhia frequently criss-crosses the Atlantic to wrestle in America as well as regularly campaigning in mainland Europe.

Peacehaven ringsiders should be in for a real treat because the fur is bound to fly when the two girls get to grips with reputations at stake.

The star-studded line-up for the show, presented by top UK matchmakers Premier Promotions, whose debut show at the Meridian earlier this year drew a sell-out crowd, will also feature one of the biggest men in British wrestling.

James Kenna, who stands 6ft 8ins in his wrestling boots, goes in against Southern Area heavyweight champion Kris Kay when nearly 40st. of might and muscle will battle it out in a clash of the giants.

Among the other stars in action will be “Dazzling” Darrell Allen, who won the American rumble event on the first Peacehaven show, and the programme will also include tag team action.

Tickets for the show are available from the Information Office at the Meridian Centre priced at £10 for adults and £9 for concessions. A family ticket for two adults and two children costs £36. Telephone enquiries 01273 575125.
