THE first match announced for WOS Wrestling’s UK tour date in Newport will see two of the ITV show’s biggest rivals go head to head.

Former best friends and tag team partners ‘The Showstealer’ Nathan Cruz and Adam ‘Flex’ Maxted will bring their bitter feud to the Newport Centre on Saturday, January 19.

This is the only WOS Wrestling UK tour date in Wales so Welsh wrestling fans are encouraged to snap up tickets quickly before they sell out.

Cruz vs Maxted will be part of an exciting card of live British wrestling action featuring the larger-than-life stars of this summer’s Saturday afternoon WOS television show – which marked British wrestling’s return to ITV for the first time since the 1980s.

Maxted, who starred in ITV’s hit reality show Love Island, and Cruz began the historic WOS television series as a tag team.

But after they lost their chance to become the first ever WOS Tag Team Champions, the furious Cruz turned on Maxted, leading to a televised match between the former friends which the reality star won.

‘The Showstealer’ will be out for revenge when the WOS tour visits Newport for an all-action show not to be missed.

The match will be just one of several exciting bouts on the card.

Other names already announced for the WOS Wrestling tour, which begins on January 18 in Southampton, include the WOS champion ‘Superhuman’ Justin Sysum, WOS women’s champion Kay Lee Ray, fan favourite Grado, 'The East End Butcher' Sha Samuels, the 36-stone Monster Crater, ‘The Prestigious One’ Joe Hendry, masked high-flyer Robbie X, the fearsome Rampage, the powerful Viper, daredevil international star 'The Aerial Assassin' Will Ospreay and many more.
