THE girls are back in town when Worthing stages its first summer Wrestling Spectacular on July 25.
Top international grapplers Erin Angel and Rhia O’Reilly clash in one of the top bouts on the big Thursday night holiday show, at the Assembly Hall, which also features the annual battle for the Worthing Rumblemania trophy.
The fur is sure to fly when the girls get to grips in a special rematch of their contest from last year, when O’Reilly, the aggressive, flame-haired Irish wrestler, gained an unpopular decision over the petite former Young Wrestler of the Year from Southampton.
Since then, Angel, aka ‘Little Miss Dynamite’, has been in action in Canada, while O’Reilly has boosted her growing reputation abroad with a series of appearances in America, as well as all over Europe.
Angel recently jetted back from a month-long tour for former WWE star Rene Dupree’s Atlantic Grand Prix promotion, during which she wrestled in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, and clashed with top Canadian star She Nay Nay.
The show will also include two tag team bouts in the run-up to the Rumblemania trophy, in which the wrestlers can only be eliminated by being thrown out of the ring over the top rope, and the last man standing is the winner.
Among the stars fighting it out for the king of the ring trophy, sponsored by Angmering stock car promoters The Oval Racing Club, will be ‘Dazzling’ Darrell Allen, masked sensation Vortex and two spectacular high-flyers from the Robbie Brookside training academy, Jimmy Meadows and Jack Starzz.
The action kicks off at 7.45pm, and tickets, including special reserved ringside seats and reduced prices for advance bookings, are available from the box office, on 01903 206206, or online at www,worthingtheatres.co.uk
