Sunday, 10 April 2016

THE CURTAIN comes down on more than 50 years of wrestling events at the Fairfield Halls, Croydon, on Sunday 10 April before the venue closes for a two year £30 million refurbishment. All Star aim to finish on a high note when an afternoon event is set to reflect some of the big moments down the years. The action in the up-close-and-personal atmosphere of the Arnhem Gallery begins at 3pm and several leading campaigners have been invited to name their dream bout for the occasion, among them James Mason, the south London-born heavyweight who has made more appearances than any other wrestler since All Star first hit the Fairfield in the 1980s with all the top stars of the day including ‘Rollerball’ Mark Rocco, Johnny Saint, Dave Finlay and Wayne Bridges on view in the opening presentation. Then, during 2012, the Fairfield’s 50th anniversary was marked by ‘Legends of the Ring’ event watched by another huge crowd. Mason, who first stepped into the Croydon arena as a 15 year-old has said he would like to face someone still active from the ‘World of Sport’ era and All Star have asked fans for nominations with Danny Collins, Mal Sanders and Johnny Kidd among the front-runners. Others ready for a special challenge include Wirral-based fans’ favourite Dean Allmark and the explosive UK Hooligans tag formation consisting of Norfolk-based brothers Roy and Zack Knight, sons of former Ricky Knight whose ‘Superflys’ tag formation with Jimmy Ocean were Croydon regulars for many years and revived their partnership to take on ‘Liverpool Lads’ Robbie Brookside and Frankie Sloane in the 2012 Croydon ‘Legends’ event. Top 21st century action on 10 April will also include Welsh tank Caden Lay, Finnish ‘Nasty Boy’ Vitto Puro and Hakeem Wakur, the fast moving man they call the ‘Arabian Sandstorm,’ showing their paces There will also be a welcome return for one of Britain’s very best heavyweight campaigners, Kent-based former TNA X-Division title holder Doug Williams who faces masked Mexican Lucha Libre star Black Tiger who has been very impressive since making a UK debut during February. Ringside seats in the first two rows can be reserved in advance and are are on sale at the Fairfield Halls box office, telephone 0208-688-9291. A special £45 family offer covering two adults and two children under 16 is available and further event information will appear on Facebook at: All Star Wrestling U.K.see link
