Getting ready to rumble

A NIGHT of action is on the way to a leisure centre when a wrestling show comes to the area.

The North East Wrestling Society (NEWS) is hosting a show at Peterlee Leisure Centre, in St Cuthbert’s Way, tomorrow after a three-month break.

NEWS British Championship holder “The Mexican Sensation” El Ligero takes on the aptly-named Hull-based 22st wrestler Colossus Kennedy for the championship in the main event of an exciting bill full of fantastic bouts.

Local favourites Max Heat and AJ Anderson will also be in action after regaining the Tag Team Championships in November last year.

The event comes after NEWS announced it will put on a show in May at a fundraising event in aid of Tow Law youngster Tilly Lockey, who lost her hands to meningitis.

Doors open at 6.30pm and ticket prices start from £8 and are available from the centre.
