Wrestling fans will be heading to Hove Town Hall at the weekend for one of the biggest shows for many years in Sussex.
UK promoters Premier Promotions are staging a special Sunday afternoon spectacular to mark the 25th anniversary of their first show, at the venue where it all began in December 1987.
Heading the line-up on Sunday December 2 will be a huge heavyweight tag match that will see the near 40 stone team of Flash Barker and Kris Kay go up against ‘Dangerous’ Danny Garnell and another wrestler nominated by Garnell’s manager, ‘The Twisted Genius’ Dean Ayass.
Barker, a former PWF heavyweight number one, and Kay, the current Southern Area champion, are normally bitter rivals but have agreed to team up just for one bout against the unbeaten Garnell and his mystery partner, whose identity will be revealed in the ring.
John Freemantle, a former Brighton journalist who has been connected with wrestling since the golden days of ITV’s World of Sport said: “Many of the biggest names in wrestling will be in action, and I am sure the occasion will be a fitting tribute to everything Premier Promotions has stood for since we began.”
Tickets for the show, which starts at 3pm, are available from the box office on 0844 847 1515, on line via the Hove Town Hall and Hove Centre website, or at the venue on the day of the show.
