All In To Coventry For The Wrestling

Coventry will be getting a tough taste of the orient this Saturday when the Skydome Arena welcomes wrestler Shinjiro Ohtani.

Ohtani, a Japanese wrestling champion will join The Fallen Angel, The AllKnighters, LX Blade and Coventry's Darren Walsh among others on the bill for the UCW X-Plosion event at Coventry's Skydome Arena.

The Skydome fought off national competition from Birmingham and several other major cities to stage the massive entertainment event, which could inject over 500,000 into the city's economy.

Universal Championship Wrestling is the British alternative to America's WWF and WCW wrestling organisations and they have struck a deal with the Skydome that could bring championship class wrestling to the city once a month.

The event has attracted a large number of names from the wrestling scene and 28-year-old Ohtani is the latest to join the bill. 

He said:

"It is a great honour for me to wrestle with such famous wrestlers in the Skydome Arena. 

"It will be a fantastic show and the atmosphere is going to be electric."

Skydome's Managing Director Michael Petrouis is delighted that another famous wrestling name has joined the bill, and is certain that the UCW event will be a great success. 

Skydome's success with a variety of sporting events, such as basketball, ice hockey and boxing have put the arena on the map as a multi-event arena and Petrouis is looking forward to wrestling becoming a regular feature in the arena's calendar.

Petrouis said:

"Wrestling is a massive spectator sport and the American shows attract television audiences which come close to those for Premiership football.  This is very good news indeed both for Coventry and for the arena."

Tickets for the wrestling extravaganza are available at the arena box office on 08700 119 119, priced 10, 15 and 20.
