A former WWE superstar is set to wrestle at a special event taking place at a Southampton school next month.

Gangrel will be making a one-off appearance in Southampton when Kapow Wrestling bring their star-studded show back to the city on Saturday, February 17, as part of a weeklong tour of the South, appearing at The Oasis Academy in Mayfield, Sholing

Gangrel, who appeared prominently on WWF (now WWE) programming with stars such as Edge, was known for his vampiric character and his elaborate gothic-inspired entrances where he emerged from fire and spat blood.

In his and the WWF’s heyday, his antics were witnessed by millions around the world.

His opponent for the evening is yet to be confirmed, but it has been announced that the star will be taking part in a special meet and greet with fans after the show.

Daily Echo:

“We can’t wait to bring Gangrel to Southampton,” said Kapow Owners.

“Gangrel was a huge childhood favourite for many during the Attitude era of WWF especially UK wrestling fans, so we can’t understate how thrilled we are to work with him.”

Kapow last held an event at The Oasis Academy in Mayfield back in November when 500 fans got to see another former WWE star, Scotty 2 Hotty, and promoters are very much hoping for the same. 

The all-action line up with an impressive supporting card starts at 7pm with doors opening at 6.30pm. 

Tickets and meet and greets can be purchased from Kapowwrestling.co.uk.
