First Match Confirmed For Southside Wrestling ‘Kirbymania’ + ‘Queen Of The Ring’ Match Card


Southside Wrestling have confirmed the first match for their October 2nd event, ‘Kirbymania’ at the Corporation in Sheffield.

It has been announced that Martin Kirby shall compete against “The Mexican Sensation” El Ligero in Sheffield on October 2nd at ‘Kirbymania’.

Southside Wrestling announced the match with the following:


On Oct 2nd Martin Kirby and Southside Wrestling celebrate something very special together. His match on October the 2nd will be his 100th match for Southside. Martin has often stole the show whether it being in singles action or tagging with Kris Travis as Project Ego.

Kirby is still the longest reigning Speed King champion as well as a former Southside Tag Team champion. He has been involved in some pretty amazing main events including against Kay Lee Ray and referee Joel Allen.

However no man in Southside and very likely anywhere has ever had such an explosive fued with him as El Ligero. The 2 men went from being friends to an intence near 3 year fued ending in Kirby winning a Cage match , but along the way there were Street fights , I quit matches and the brutal no ropes match.
The two men have managed to put the past behind them this year and Kirby was Ligeros surprise team mate at Stevenage recently , helping him finally rid Southside of the Righteous Army.
Obviousley the match is hugely important to us and when speaking to Kirby about an opponent there was a very quick and certain responce – I want Ligero , no other man is fitting for such an occasion.

So nearly 3 years after there epic Cage match the duo are finally doing battle again !
