ONE of the "biggest names" in American wrestling will top the bill of a grappling spectacular this half term at the Wyllyotts Theatre, in Potters Bar.

'Hurricane' John Walters, from Massachusetts, will feature in the Darkes Lane Wrestling Spectacular on Tuesday.

Walters, on his first visit to England, is top of the UK matchmakers Premier Promotions, which presents the Potters Bar shows, which is aiming to match him against Britain's top wrestlers.

Another international star appearing in the family packed show is Frenchman Heddi Karaoui, who has an impressive background in both amateur and professional wrestling.

Karaoui competed in the World Games and coached the French Olympic squad before being trained at the Unoki Dojo in America.

Now based in Los Angeles, he was ranked in the top 10 in the world in submission wrestling, and is currently on a major European tour.

The line-up will also include 'Wonder Kid' Jonny Storm, Young Wrestler of the Year Joel Redman and new star Marcus Brash.

The fun commences at 7.30pm.

Tickets are from £10, and concessions get £1.50 off that price.

A family of four ticket costs £35.
