Top ring stars head to Ipswich

Jonny-StormALL STAR, Europe’s longest established wrestling presenter, returns to Ipswich Corn Exchange on Friday March 7 for a big bill that is set to finish with over the top rope action in the form of a Superslam Rumble involving all of the wrestlers in a programme starting at 7.30pm

Now into a 45th year of presentations, Birkenhead-based promoter Brian Dixon first threw his hat into the ring with 1970 bill at Marple, Cheshire, and has stayed ahead of the game after combining American influences with traditional British wrestling values and the Ipswich line-up will be no exception.

No one will be more eager to impress in the rumble than East Anglia’s own action star Jonny Storm who is based just across the Suffolk border in Cambridgeshire. Dubbed the ‘Wonder Kid’ when first starting his ring career, Storm’s dynamic style has brought top hours at home and in European rings and although one of the lightest rumble entrants, he cannot be overlooked.

The heavy brigade will be well represented in the every man for himself event with recently crowned Superslam Champion Thunder, the metal masked force from the Midlands, a major threat along with South London heavyweight favourite James Mason. There will also be a Corn Exchange debut for Oliver Grey, the Devon-born star who made a big name for himself during two years of American campaigning in the TNX division of WWE.

Wirral-based former Superslam champion Dean Allmark is pulling out all the stops to earn a title re-match with Thunder and equally determined to impress will be Blackpool’s blond bombshell J.D.Bryant and the North East’s action star Tony Spitfire.

ThunderTickets including a special £45 family offer covering two adults and two children under 16 are now on sale at the Corn Exchange box office, telephone: 01473-433100.
