THE School of Slam will be taking over a football pitch for fight fans to watch a series of power-slamming matches with home-grown heroes and international wrestling stars.

SOS Wrestling, based in Harwich, will be taking over Harwich and Parkeston Football Club for superfans on Sunday, June 9.

The massive sporting event will be running from midday until 5pm.

What is being called Unfinished Business will be a wrestling event like no other for Harwich fight fans.

The event has been dubbed as the biggest event in wrestling history for the town by organisers and will see more than 25 wrestlers in action on the night with a great set of matches in store.

The audience will get the chance to see second generation superstar and son of wrestling legend Scott Hall, Cody Hall, who will be defending the Wrestling League Championship against James Castle.

Hometown star Arron Warnes will challenge Nick Payne for the SOS Championship.

Harry Mant will be taking on Corey McRae in what is set up to be a classic fight.

Then an SOS Battle Royale will determine the number one contender for the SOS Championship.

Organisers say competitors who step up their game could change their careers at the spectacular event.

After Callum Newman suffered a concussion and was not cleared for action, Tate Mayfairs will be the last minute replacement to take on Charlie May in a falls count anywhere match.

Mark Young, Wrestling League and SOS promoter, said the event will be the biggest Harwich wrestling show so far.

He said: “The show itself will be a spectacle with the ring placed on the centre of the pitch with international and hometown stars clashing in a afternoon of over the top action.

“There will be stalls, drink, food, bouncy castle, face paint and more.

“It could be the biggest event the town has seen in years, with the capacity to hold a lot more people at the football ground.”
