FOR the first time in over three years, stars of American Wrestling will invade Offaly, when the powerhouses of Emerald Wrestling Promotions stamp their mark all over the Bridge House Hotel in Tullamore on Friday, February 18 at 7.30pm.
In a night which will be filled with non stop action, those in attendance will witness the incredible power of the eavyweight gladiators and the athleticism of their high flying Cruiserweight counterparts.
One wrestler looking forward to making the trip to Tullamore is Welsh Heavyweigh, Andy Boy Simmonz. Andy is a household name on the UK Wrestling circuit and has achieved great success in many European countries holding titles in Italy, Germany and Spain.
As a fan favourite all over Europe, it wasn’t long before Simmonz attracted the attention of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Simmonz was contracted to battle WWE Superstars Matt Hardy, Goldust and Snitsky on live television. WWE Owner Vince McMahon that he personally challenged Simmonz to take on Samoan Monster Umaga in the main event of Monday Night Raw. Andy courageously accepted and put up a warriors effort in a memorable collision.
When asked about the upcoming event, Simmonz said, “I’m really looking forward to coming to Tullamore, because most people only see wrestling on TV and they don’t realise what an incredible spectacle it can be when you’re close enough to hear every blow. Offaly, and Ireland generally, has a great sporting tradition and I can promise them that they’ll never forget the name Andy Boy Simmonz after the 18th.”
Also in action in the Bridge House will be the Manchester Monster, LT Summers. Standing 6 foot 6 Inches tall with 17 stone of pure muscle, Summers is an intimidating force for any challenger.
Having represented his country at rugby league, Summers decided to unleash his aggression inside the ring. LT has since dominated the UK Heavyweight Wrestling scene, holding the British Heavyweight Title on four occasions.
Summers recently issued a challenge to any Irish wrestler to battle him in Tullamore, one which was accepted by Celtic Warrior Eamon O’Neill, a home town hero who always draws huge crowds to events in his native county and all over Europe.
The Manchester Monster remarked, “O’Neill has bitten off more than he can chew.”
Other wrestlers scheduled to appear on the night include High Flying Mexican - Lion Kid, TNA Star – Haskins and The American Idol - Sean Sensation, plus many more top wrestling stars.
After a jam packed night of exciting matches, fans in attendance will have the opportunity to meet all the superstars and collect autographs/pictures with the show having a family friendly theme.
Tickets for this American Wrestling event can be purchased at the reception desk of the Bridge House Hotel Tullamore.
