A FORMER Love Island contestant will trade in sun, sand and sea for some hard knocks in Prestatyn.

Britannia Wrestling Promotions ( BWP’) returns to the Ffrith Beach Arena on Saturday, March 30 with another action packed evening of family entertainment featuring Superstars from WWE NXT UK and ITV WOS Wrestling - including ITV Love Island star, Adam Maxted.

After shooting to fame on the hit ITV series, Mr Maxted since received global recognition and fame as a professional wrestler, appearing ITV’s relaunch of World of Sport Wrestling on Saturday afternoons.

Mr Maxted said: “I am looking forward to coming to Prestatyn, it will be my first time wrestling there and I’ve heard a lot of good things about BWP’s shows and their fans.”

Also appearing on the show will be WWE NXT UK Superstar, ‘Screwface’ who will defend the Fighting Spirit Wrestling Championship against Mr Maxted. 

Screwface is a student of the WWE NXT UK Tag Team Champions, ‘Liverpool’s No1’ Zack Gibson and ‘Mr Mayhem’ James Drake who are set to return to Britannia Wrestling themselves in April.

BWP owner and founder, Steve Saxon, said: “We have been bringing big International TV Superstars to Prestatyn for years now, Superstars from WWE, Ring of Honor, TNA Impact and World of Sport, but never have we put two opposing and current roster members against each other like we are with Maxted and Screwface.

“I’m pleased that Britannia Wrestling has been granted permission from WWE to allow their NXT UK Superstars to continue to work for us, this means that we can continue to bring globally recognised wrestlers to North Wales on a monthly basis.”

The following month, BWP will return with WOS Wrestling Superstar Joe Hendry, WWE NXT UK General Manager and British wrestling legend Johnny Saint and former UFC athlete David Faulkner.
