York Hall becomes the site of UK wrestling history on January 12th

After 48 hours of continual negotiations the Great Mutaís UK debut has been saved from total cancellation. The ground breaking event was scheduled to take place at the Doncaster Dome next Saturday under the 1PW banner, but due to the shocking news of the companyís liquidation yesterday all plans were thrown up in the air. With the Japanese wrestling legends flight booked along with the flights of over 10 more All Japan wrestlers, journalists and crew something had to be done to save the UK scene from receiving a massive and public black eye.

UK Supershow promoter Alex Shane began talks with 1PW owner Steven Gauntley in order to try and work out what could be done at such short notice. Shane approached RQW promoter Len Davies with the proposal of changing the plans for his January 12th York Hall taping in order to give UK fans and the Japanese contingent an arena to see the Japanese wrestling icon in the UK. After going back and forth all night with the negotiations Len Davies has managed to pull off what seemed like the impossible.

On Friday January 12th 2006, the Great Muta will make his European debut at the prestigious York Hall in Bethnal Green, East London.

All tickets bought for the 1PW show will be honoured at this event so that anyone who has bought a ticket to see one of Japans most important performers of the last 20 years will still be able to. Fans must bring their 1PW tickets to the door. We will do our best to ensure that those fans with higher prices ringside tickets to the 1PW event receive the same type of seats here. For us to do this we require all ringside ticket holders to arrive at 5.50pm to get these seats. As the capacity is only 1,200 people we urge fans to arrive early to get the best seats as they are on a first come first serve basis.

For RQW fans who have bought tickets we apologise for any changes made to the original card. We have had to make changes to the planned event but are confident that fans will be happy with the new line up.
