NORTH Wrestling / NCL 12 / Nobody Pray for Me

NORTH Wrestling NCL returns to Riverside on Saturday 15th September 2018 for //NCL.12/ NOBODY PRAY FOR ME.

The main event sees Rory Coyle defend his NORTH Wrestling Championship against the returning WoS Superstar (as seen on ITV) Liam Slater.

Robbie X and El Phantasmo are both considered 2 of British Wrestling’s BEST high flyers, and they will face off, in a MUCH anticipated match. Speaking of the best of British, Chris Ridgeway will debut for NORTH against the purveyor of “Geordie Strong Style”, and fan favourite… HT Drake!

We’ll see a 5 way match up where Roxxy, TK Cooper, Chief Deputy Dunne, Spike Trivet and WWE NXT UK’s Amir Jordan all dance, in what’s bound to be yet another NORTH signature, Crazy match up. After not getting his desired match up, Screwface Ahmed issued an open challenge… which was answered by the brave (stupid?) Sid Scala.

We will also see fan favourites, England’s Hardest Men, take on the 6’6″ Lucas Steel and his mentor, 12 year veteran and ITV WoS regular, Nathan Cruz.

NORTH Wrestling NCL is quickly becoming the hottest wrestling show in the North, with every show being unmissable. Get on board now.

Tickets available from // Tickets start at £12.50 (£10 student).
