The Wrestling Association of Rugby (WAR) is bringing UK heavyweight wrestling champion Saul Adams to its show on Saturday.

The stars of WAR are squeezing into their lycra and lacing their boots for an electrifying family-friendly night of high-flying combat and a chance to claim the prestigious UK title themselves. Championship Showdown takes place at Lawrence Sheriff from 7pm.

The 17-and-a-half stone champion said: “Lots of the WAR guys are making big splashes all over the UK and as the UK’s heavyweight champion I need to challenge myself against the best – and that’s why I’m coming to WAR on March 2.”

Already announced for the show are some of the best wrestling talents from across the UK including The Bird of Prey Falcon, Xander Cooper and The Spindoctor.

Also in action will be the WAR Champion and crowd favourite – Blue Thunder.

Championship Showdown will feature some of the most exciting, high-flying and hard hitting wrestlers from around the country and with more than five matches on the night – including an appearance by the popular tag-team, The Heroes in Training. Championship Showdown will feature title defences of all the WAR champions, as well as the open challenge from UK champion Saul Adams.

It also includes WAR regulars The Executioner, Red Tiger, Chris Ocean and Andy Poole. Tickets for the event are on sale now and can be reserved by calling 07795 621740 or by emailing
