“Back in 2010 he became the first Welsh Heavyweight Champion, as recognized by the Union of European Wrestling Alliances, and held the title for six months.
“James, who stands 6ft tall and weighs in at over 16 stone, will start off by giving a talk on how wrestling began as part of the ancient Olympics and gradually developed into the entertaining professional sport we know today.
“He’ll then show the kids some of the simpler moves like a forward roll and actually give them the chance to try it for themselves if they fancy it.
“James loves doing it and the kids who come up into the ring always enjoy themselves tremendously, so everyone’s looking forward to putting on a masterclass at the Stiwt.”
There’s been a tremendous response to the upcoming event already and one that Stiwt’s operations manager Gavin Sharpe was glad to discuss.
“Here at the Stiwt we’re really getting ready to rumble with the all-star wrestling evening,” he said.
“We’re lucky to have had the boys from Welsh Wrestling appearing with us a couple of times before and each time they’ve gone down extremely well with the crowds who are always left shouting for more.
