A former WWE wrestling star will swing into the county next month as he performs in two live family friendly wrestling events in Rushden and Corby.

The former WWE and ECW American TV star SABU is preparing to excite wrestling fans in August, with viewers getting the chance to watch him in live bouts.

The wrestler, famed for his fighting in ‘Hardcore’ matches, will also give people the chance to get a photo with him, with his trademarked steel chair wrapped in barb wire.

The bouts are being hosted by Extreme American Wrestling (EAW) whose shows include moving LED lights, lasers, smoke and pyrotechnics.

A bar, hot food, and souvenirs will be available during the shows.

The Rushden show will take place on Saturday, August 3, at The Pemberton Centre, in H E Bates Way. Doors will open at 6pm and the show starts at 7pm.

The Corby show will take place in The Masonic Complex, Rockingham Road, Sunday, August 18. Doors open at 3pm and the show starts at 4pm.

Tickets cost £10 for adults, £8 for children, and £30 for a ticket for a family of four.

They can be purchased by calling 07708896048, visiting, or tickets can be purchased on the door, subject to availability.

EAW now accept payment via card, or over the phone, at all events.
