Spud was the winner of TV reality show TNA British Boot Camp and his prize was a contract for Impact Wrestling, shown on Sundays at 9pm.

In recent months viewers have seen Spud become a regular character in TNA, as the promotion’s president Dixie Carter’s ‘Chief of Staff’.

The 31-year-old from Birmingham has just finished a national arena tour and now joins a bill which will also see Lancashire’s ‘Psychotic Warrior’ Johnny Phere face his toughest challenge yet.

In the main event, Phere will defend his PAID Promotions British Heavyweight Championship against the number one contender, Nottingham powerhouse ‘The Heavyweight House of Pain’ Stixx.

Johnny Phere, managed by the unscrupulous Greg ‘The Truth’ Lambert, has made four successful defences of the championship he won at the arena last August.

The outspoken duo, known as #PhereTheTruth, have told anyone who will listen that Phere is the ‘Best in Europe’ and branded anyone who disagrees as a liar.

But the popular Stixx is on an undefeated run known as The Stixx Streak and has not lost a wrestling match in Morecambe for six years.

Phere and Stixx first met two years ago in a match that ended in an inconclusive ‘no contest’.

These two bruising heavyweights will square off in a rematch under the rules of a Chains Match.

This means there will be no disqualifications, no count outs, metal chains can be used as weapons, and there must be a decisive winner.

The line up will also include an over-the-top rope 15-man rumble, where the winner will receive the Golden Chance Trophy and a championship match at any time of his choosing within the next 12 months.

Also on the card, fan favourite Bubblegum will battle the cocky Max Angelus, Manchester’s Joey Hayes will meet Barrow-in-Furness bad boy ‘One Man Riot’ Craig Kollins, and there will be a four-way elimination bout featuring the 30-stone ‘Manchester Monster’ Cyanide, Blackpool’s Ricky J McKenzie, high-flyer Zak Northern and the brutal Barricade.

Scotland’s Ryan Grayson, Fleetwood window cleaner turned wrestler Jon Aggro, Barrow-in-Furness giant ‘Mr Big’ Shaun Vasey, the bizarre Loner Rossion and the glamorous Serenity will also appear.

Doors open 4pm. Bell time 4.30pm. The show is expected to be finished by 7.30pm.

Adult tickets cost £12, child tickets £9.50, and family tickets cost £36 (based on two adults and two children).

RockStar Spud will also host a training seminar for budding professional wrestlers on the afternoon of the show in The Wright and Lord Suite at The Globe Arena.

He will pass on the knowledge leaned from training in Ohio Valley Wrestling with Rip Rogers, Danny Davis and Al Snow since he arrived in the USA.

This will be a real eye opener for any budding wrestler who wants to learn about working for TV and telling the complete wrestling story.

This will be open from 1pm to 3pm, price £25.
