Southside Wrestling have announced a second match for their February 5th event, Battle Of The Egos 7 at The Priory Centre in St Neots.
It has been confirmed that “The Bruiserweight” Pete Dunne will compete against “Die Hard” Eddie Edwards in singles action in St Neots on February 5th.
Southside Wrestling confirmed the match with the following:
PETE DUNNE v EDDIE EDWARDS !!!!!
Pete Dunne had the year of his career in 2016. He defeated the AAW Heavyweight Champion, Sami Callihan, the former CHIKARA Grand Champion, Eddie Kingston, former Southside Heavyweight Champion, Mark Haskins, former TNA X-Division Champion, Tigre Uno, former CZW Wired Champion, Shane Strickland, former PWG World Heavyweight Champion, Chris Hero and former Lucha Underground Champion, Rey Fenix, all in singles competition for us here in Southside.
“The Bruiserweight” may have ended 2016 with a loss against former WWE Intercontinental Champion, Cody Rhodes, however he sure left his mark when he attacked Cody after the match and was the first man of the two to walk away from the ring under his own steam. 2017 already looks to be another big year for Pete as he was announced as a participant in WWE’s United Kingdom Championship tournament and at Southside’s second day of action for the year, he faces his biggest test to date.
He has faced former WWE, TNA, PWG, Lucha Underground, etc singles champions in 2016 however at “Battle Of The Egos 6” at the St Neots Priory Centre on Sunday the 5th of February he will take on the CURRENT TNA World Heavyweight Champion, “Die Hard” Eddie Edwards! Edwards made his Southside debut in Stevenage on the same night where Pete lost to Cody and he successfully defended the TNA World Heavyweight Championship against the Southside Speed King Champion, Bubblegum.
Eddie is someone we at Southside have been trying to have on our shows for four years before he finally made his debut. He is a Triple Crown Champion for both TNA and ROH and won the TNA World Heavyweight Championship to the shock of many against Lashley and has defended that belt against names like Cody Rhodes, Lashley, Ethan Carter III and the aforementioned Bubblegum match. We are so pleased to be able to bring Edwards back to England in such a short amount of time.
Tickets are on sale now for “Battle Of The Egos 6” from the Southside website. Our shows at St Neots are constant sell out’s so act fast if you want to see “The Bruiserweight” take on the man who is “Die Hard”!
