UK Wrestling ‘Death Match’ Event Being Investigated By Police WWE

A UK wrestling ‘death match’ event is being investigated by the police.

The event by Colliery Championship Wrestling (CCW), held at Conservative Club in Seaham, County Durham on April 29, allegedly didn’t advertise any death matches for the show, and had offered discounted family tickets.

A variety of weapons were reportedly used at the event, including a garden strimmer and light tubes.

Per BBC News, Promotor James Barrass claimed that one match in particular ‘escalated’, with weapons being used without his prior knowledge.

A Durham Constabulary spokeswoman noted the following:

“We are working with Durham County Council’s licensing team after a number of complaints were received by the local authority in relation to an event at Seaham Conservative Club on 29 April. Inquiries are ongoing.”

The Seaham Conservative Club declined to comment.

James Barrass  apologised, but claimed the audience had enjoyed the match.
