Greetings grapple fans - The Shay will be transformed into a battleground next weekend when American wrestling comes to town.

Stars from UWE Megaslam Wrestling will go head-to-head in a two-hour event, with five bouts on the schedule.

The event is sure to rekindle memories of when wrestling was staged at the Victoria Theatre in Halifax in the 1970s, featuring the likes of Giant Haystacks and Big Daddy.

Organiser Brad Taylor said: ‘Halifax is a town that we have wanted to come to for a very long time. It has such a rich history of wrestling dating back to Big Daddy, who lived in the town, and ITV Wrestling promoter, Max Crabtree who still does. We would love him to attend.”

Doors open at 7pm on Sunday, February 10 and the show starts at 7.30pm. For more information, call 07557 047667.
