WESTON is ready for a royal rumble, as 12 larger-than-life professional wrestlers prepare to do battle at the Winter Gardens.
Combat Sports Federation (CSF) Wrestling will hold its next Saturday Night Slam at the venue on February 11.
The family event will feature six professional bouts, including tag team battles and championship match-ups starring several of the UK’s leading wrestling stars.
The two-and-a-half hour family spectacular will be headlined by a tag team main event as the mysterious masked star Salem and his team partner Nathan Bane, known together as Doomsday, face the challenge of James Baker and the undefeated N-Rage.
The match has an added stipulation: If Doomsday lose the bout Salem must unmask for the first time ever in front of the live crowd and Bane will have his famous beard shaved off, while if Baker and N-Rage are defeated they will never be permitted to wrestle in Weston again.
Other bouts will see the prestigious All Nations Championship defended as new champion Jeckle faces Zack Garrett for the title and belt, and former British Champion Gideon will collide with the huge Richtor.
Other wrestlers to feature will include Weston’s own Danny Media, making a return to the ring after a year-long absence, Billy Reynolds, Chris Walker, Kay Jutler and Kid Lykos.
The event will start at 7.15pm, tickets are priced £8-10 and are available from the Winter Gardens, The Playhouse Theatre and the Weston TIC Centre, or from the box office on 01934 645544.
* The Mercury has teamed up with CSF Wrestling to offer a VIP family pass for four front seats and backstage passes to one lucky winner.
