VARSITY Pro Wrestling will make their long-awaited return to The Vyne Community School tomorrow night and will include a WWE superstar in their ranks.

To mark their return, an explosive one-night elimination tournament has been announced to determine who will face the monstrous Max ‘The Machine’ Von Schultz for his prestigious VPW Championship in August.

Headlining the event in Basingstoke will be former WWE Superstar and NXT Tag Team Champion Oliver Grey.

“It’s a huge opportunity,” said Grey.

“I began my wrestling career at the VPW School of Excellence, so it would be a massive honour for me to return from America to win the championship at the place where it all began.”

The tournament is attracting competition from around the world, with wrestlers from New Zealand and Italy already confirmed, as well as British stars such as fearless high-flyer Nathan Mackenzie, The UK Kid and Basingstoke’s very own Rob Holte.

Tickets are available at the door on the night priced at £10 for adults and £8 for children.

Doors open at 7pm and the action starts at 7.30pm
