AFTER a sabbatical lasting almost five years, a popular wrestling competition is back in Oswestry for a first-class evening of hard-hitting, high-octane, family-friendly pro wrestling action.

BRAWL, which is due to take place at the Eastern Oswestry Community Centre on Saturday, July 27, boasts a stacked programme of matches including a world title main event, a tag team contest for the tag team titles and is set to feature Oswestry’s own “Submission Machine” Bobby Price.

Also featuring will be the reigning catchweight champion Tony Bond, firm fan favourite Jonny Blaze and the current tag team title holders The WXM Bois.


BPW Spokesman Ryan “Beanie” Priamo said he was looking forward to returning to the town with he hopes promises to be an action-packed card.

“It’s great to be back in Oswestry, or O-Town as we affectionally call it,” he said.

“The last show we promoted in Oswestry took place at the Memorial Hall in 2019 with proceeding tournaments cancelled because of the Covid-19 outbreak.

“Our past events have always been very well attended and received and we hope to continue this trend going forward, at our new venue.”
