EUROPE’S biggest wrestler is set to bring some heavyweight action to Holmfirth.
After a successful debut last February, Shooting Star Wrestling – the Yorkshire equivalent of the spectacular WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) – will be holding another bout in Holmfirth next month.
This time the live Picturedrome show will be complete with a new star attraction, Colossus Kennedy.
The 28 stone (178kg), 6ft 5ins giant will be appearing alongside “The Heavyweight House of Pain” Stixx.
Promoter Matt Thomas said: “As a child, I used to watch Last Of The Summer Wine with my father and visit Holmfirth several times throughout the year. When Shooting Star Wrestling began promoting events in 2008 I always dreamed about bringing the events to Holmfirth.”
Tickets for the bout on Friday July 23 are available on the door or from: www.shootingstarwrestling.com or www.picturedome.net
