High-flying wrestling action will return to Stevenage this September, as RevPro Wrestling bring the British J-Cup back to the Gordon Craig Theatre.

Following past successes at the venue - including last months Raw Deal, headlined by London 2012 medallist Anthony Ogogo - the British promotion will bring the one night tournament to Stevenage for a third time on Saturday, September 28.

The tournament takes inspiration from the Super J-Cup in Japan, and showcases acrobatic and fast-paced action involving lightweight competitors from Britain and across the world.

Past winners include Canadian star Mike Bailey and Britain's Leon Slater.

Professional Wrestling is a cross between theatre and sport and has been likened to a sporting soap opera, with the outcomes of bouts predetermined.

Punters attending the event may well get a glimpse of pro wrestling's stars of the future as RevPro has a reputation for developing talent that have gone in to star in Japan and the United States. 

Many RevPro alumni have gone on to make waves in the big leagues, most notably Will Ospreay, who spent a decade wowing British and Japanese crowds before making the move to American giants All Elite Wrestling earlier this year.

Tickets for the event are on sale now, costing £18. You can purchase tickets at https://www.revolutionprowrestling.com/jcup.
