BEAT down the Saturday night boredom with a special brand of professional wrestling at Blackfriars Theatre, Boston.

The World Association of Wrestling (WAW), are presenting ‘a family friendly show with larger than life characters and a unique atmosphere only professional wrestling can offer’ to the Spain Lane venue from 7.30pm.

WAW is run by the Knight family which includes six members involved as in-ring performers.

It has been putting on live wrestling shows around the country for 17 years and organisers promise a night of spectacular action.

The main event promises to be full of action, humour and something for all the family.

It will be a tag team match between the Hooligans, Bud and Bex, and the Assassins, Karl Kramer and Ricky Knight.

Bud, 30, and Bex, 20, were ‘born into wrestling’ and both made their debuts at the ages of 13 and 10 respectively.

The pair have both had singles careers, Bud as Zebra Kid and Bex as Zak Zodiac, and both have also held major titles.

Bex has also had a trial for World Wrestling Entertainment.

The pair formed the Hooligans last year and promise audiences a mixture of humour and hard hitting action.

Their opponents, the Assassins, are veterans of the wrestling business with nearly 60 years’ experience between them, Karl Kramer weighs in at 28st with Rick Knight tipping the scales at 20st.

Rick Knight was a champion tag team wrestler for 10 years in the 80s and 90s with his former tag team partner Jimmy Ocean.

He is the head of the Knight wrestling family and is owner of WAW.

Karl Kramer is the fastest moving heavyweight in Europe and belies his 28st frame with his agility and high flying manoeuvres.

He has won every heavyweight title during a career spanning more than 30 years.

Supporting the tag team match will be female wrestlers Sweet Saraya and teenager Britani Knight, plus the 6ft 3in high Gorgon, muscle man Scott Fusion, man mountain Havoc, Simon Rose and Lincolnshire stars Sykes and Aaron Sharpe.

Tickets are £12 adult, £9 children.
