Everyone’s favourite king of the arm-bar, Zack Sabre Jr, makes his final three UK appearances of the summer this weekend before he disappears off to Japan for another three months.
Triple X Wrestling are hosting a show at the Coventry Sq Club (adults-only, of course) which features Prince Devitt; IPW:UK have their summer show in Sittingbourne, where ZSJ faces Johnny Gargano and Marty Scurll takes on Sha Samuels; and Comic Wrestling Alliance have their debut show in Maidstone – set to be one of the most exciting cards of the year.
Promoter Graham Beadle admits to a few nerves prior to CWA’s first-ever show (not surprising – he’s also the afternoon’s MC), but he’s very sure about the quality of his talent.
“I have every confidence in the guys performing,” he says – but an eight-match card that includes the likes of Noam Dar, Jon Ryan, the Bhangra Knights, Project Ego, Danny Garnell and Lion Kid speaks for itself, really.
There’ll also be comic artists on hand to draw whatever you request, free comic-themed programmes, plus giveaways for every child in attendance. And of course the wrestlers will be there and selling their own merchandise.
If you can’t make all three events, then do your best to get yourself to one of them – this is the best of British wrestling.
