THE LION KID, one of the most popular wrestlers to have appeared at the Meridian Centre, returns to Peacehaven for a huge grappling spectacular on February 16.


The high-flying international star, who has thrilled fans in Japan and all over Europe, including France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland and Ireland, was a big hit with Meridian fans when he made his only previous appearance back in 2016.


The Lion Kid features on arguably one of the biggest bills to be staged in Peacehaven that also includes the Sussex debut of sensational tag team The Beards, an appearance by one of the UK's top talents, Sid Scala, and an eagerly-awaited Premier Wrestling Federation title bout.


"Dazzling" Darrell Allen clashes with "The Prince of Mumbai" Rishi Ghosh in a PWF welterweight championship contest held over from the last Peacehaven show when title-holder Allen was forced to pull out of the match through injury.


The Beards, man mountain Karl Atlas and his partner, "Maddog" Quinn, go up against another team new to Meridian fans, the Heavyweight Heartbreakers, while Cockney Kid Scala, now contracted to the WWE, has been snapped up by match-makers Premier Promotions on one of his free dates in his busy NXT UK schedule.


Among the other stars in action on the Saturday night spectacular will be Harry Sefton, one of the brightest up and coming wrestlers in the country, who took out three opponents on the last Meridian show to finish as the last man standing in a thrilling six-man knockout tag bout.


Tickets for the show, in aid of the mayor's charities and sponsored by Aquarius Solutions, are available from the Information Office at the Meridian Centre, priced £10 for adults and £9 for concessions. A family ticket for two adults and two children costs £36. Telephone enquiries: 01273 585493.
