Organiser Brad Taylor said: “Belper has really become a second home for Megaslam. Every single show is pretty much sold out, they love it and we always bring our top stars. This time will be no different, we cannot wait to return.”

He added: “Usually for families, the only way to watch a live wrestling spectacular is on TV. With Megaslam, we bring the action to you.

“The larger than life stars, the big crowds, the incomparable atmosphere - it really is a family occasion.”

Established in 2009, Megaslam are among Europe’s most prolific wrestling promoters, running between 250-300 live events per year across England, Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man.
