Superstars from LDN Wrestling and WAW are ready to rumble at the Ocean Room on Wednesday, June 2.

Featuring some of the country's best grapplers, including British champion Alan Lee Travis and the mysterious Dark Lord, LDN and WAW guarantee a night of high-impact action.

LDN is celebrating its 18th year of American sports entertainment combined with the traditional British technique.

This is the first national touring show to return to the area after the breakout of Covid, and after more than a year "in hibernation, LDN Wrestling is back bigger and better".

In the main event, LDN British Champion Alan Lee Travis will defend his title against Norwich's very own Hooligan Roy Knight.

Travis commented: “It’s great to be bringing British wrestling back to this great British town. I can’t wait for LDN to rock.”

Norwich grappler, Hooligan Roy Knight is currently one-half of the WAW World Tag Team champions with his brother Zak and is a member of the wrestling family captured in Fighting With My Family.

He is a 26-year-veteran and will pose a serious threat to Alan Lee Travis's two-year reign as the LDN British Heavyweight champion.

Dark Lord, the self-professed sadistic, violent man of mystery, is confident he will deliver in Gorleston next Wednesday.

"I've wrestled all around the world and came to LDN because I've heard this is where the real competition is," claims the masked maniac.

"Forget about beating me. There's nobody who can even last five minutes in the ring with me and it's going to be no different in Gorleston.

"If my opponent has any brains, they won't even turn up.”
