HUNSTANTON BUILD-UP CONTINUES
It’s been quite an eventful couple of weeks for Zak Zodiac, Britain’s youngest professional wrestler. Having been the subject of features in local newspapers and on local television, Zak faces the biggest test of his young career this coming Friday at the Town Hall in Hunstanton.
Last October at “Battle of the Champions” in Lowestoft, Zak thwarted Ricky Knight’s plans to get a shot at the British Heavyweight title, defeating his old man to become the number one contender. This coming Friday, April 1st, Zak goes into Hunstanton to take on current champion Ashe in The Dark Angel’s home town, in a match fought under the WAW Championship rules.
Zak and Ashe are not unfamiliar with each other, having wrestled several times, most notably during last year’s Atlantis Cup tournament, and at The War of 2004, WAW’s 10th anniversary show in Norwich last September. What is being dubbed as the battle of WAW’s young lions is possibly the most anticipated match ever staged in Hunstanton since WAW made their debut in the Norfolk coastal resort in 2003.
The show in Hunstanton also sees the WAW debut of two new stars, and two other stars returning to the WAW stage. Johnny Phere returns to WAW after his performances on the holiday camp circuit last year to take on the veteran Jamie Lee, who has developed something of a cult following, or rather, his wrestling attire has.
Phere’s younger brother, Kid Kaos, will be making his debut in Hunstanton. The sixteen year old will have a tough task on his hands as he goes up against Bash. The baseball bat wielding star will be looking to continue his momentum, having gained a dubious victory over Bash at Who Dares Wins II.
“The Wildman” Andi Rush will also be returning to WAW, this time bringing along his long-time tag-team partner Karl Harker, as The Brit Pack look to make an immediate impact on the tag-team division with a victory over the U.K. Pitbulls in a non-title match.
And to round things off, a mixed tag-team match sees Destiny and Sweet Saraya continue their long-running feud, this time bringing Jason Cross and the Zebra Kid into things.
So the card for Hunstanton this coming Friday, April 1st, looks like this;
- WAW British Heavyweight Championship;
“The Dark Angel” Ashe (c) v Zak Zodiac
- Destiny & Jason Cross v Sweet Saraya & The Zebra Kid
- The U.K. Pitbulls v The Brit Pack
- Bash v Kid Kaos
- Jame Lee v Johnny Phere
Please note – card subject to change.

APRIL TRAINING SCHOOL UPDATE
Just a few places are left at next weekend’s Training School at the Breckland Community Centre in Costessey, Norwich. Next weekend’s session will be supervised by Sweet Saraya and Jason Cross, and will see the Zebra Kid take part as a guest trainer.
WAW is also running a referee’s course at the same time. This is your chance to train in one of the most important aspects of the wrestling business, and should you do well enough, work is guaranteed for referees on the halls and holiday camp circuit.
