Home town wrestling star hoping for win in front of fans

Wrestling fans are in for a treat when a former star heads to Ashington this weekend.

Former WWE and ECW wrestling legend Sabu is one of the star names on the bill for the show at Ashington Leisure Centre on Sunday, April 26.

He will be up against home town star Kavero – real name Josh Kirkup – in a three way dance which also features Adam Christ.

The event has been organised by Main Event Wresting (MEW) and will start at 5pm.

Also on the bill includes a shot for the Dave Carbons MEW Title between Assassin and MJH & Lucas Marvel and a Three Tag War.

Dan Fitch, promoter at MEW UK, said: “It is American Wrestling so aimed at the whole family with a vast array of colourful characters.

“These will include former WWE and ECW wrestling legend Sabu who will face a wrestler from Ashington called Kavero. Kavero is one of the brightest new stars in pro wrestling and is hoping to put Ashington on the map by defeating Sabu.”

Tickets are priced at £10 adults or £8 children and can be bought from the leisure centre or by contacting Dan on 07973 410170 for more information.
