STATEMENT FROM THE BRITISH WRESTLERS REUNION

2022 REUNION AT THE BRIDGES IS CANCELLED AS EUROPES OLDEST EVENT RINGS THE FINAL BELL

Following on from the announcement last week that Ken Sowden had decided he would stand down from his role as Organiser in August he has now advised us that he wishes to leave with immediate effect. In view of this the Reunion scheduled for Sunday 14th August 2022 at The Bridges has been cancelled and after consultation with Sarahs family we can also confirm that no further Wrestlers Reunions will be held at The Bridges in the future.

Whilst the British Wrestlers Reunion in its current form is ending with immediate effect we wish all of those who are planning events in the South for later this year the very best for the future.

On behalf of Joe D'Orazio, Wayne and Sarah Bridges, Frank Rimer, Ken Sowden and all those who have worked behind the scenes over the last 30 years we would like to send sincere thanks to you all for your support.


25th January 2022.




WELCOME TO EUROPES OLDEST WRESTLERS REUNION

Welcome to the online home of the British Wrestlers Reunion where we celebrate the best in British wrestling from the wonderful halcyon days of the World of Sport era to the modern day stars.

Here you will find thousands of posters, photos, programmes, discussion forums, articles, newsletters and over 300 videos all dedicated to the great art of professional wrestling plus a comprehensive obituary section in memory of the great gladiators that have fallen and the British Wrestlers Hall of Fame.

The first Reunion was held following the death of the great CATWEAZLE in 1992 with just 6 wrestlers with a further one being held two months later which attracted 16 but since that time has now become the oldest Reunion in Europe and the second oldest in the World, with over 4000 online members on our website and 100s attending the functions each year.

Every year we hold an Annual Reunion on the second Sunday in August. The Reunion is held at The Bridges Public House, the former home of the Heavyweight Champion of the World WAYNE BRIDGES and his wife 'Miss Great Britain' SARAH BRIDGES.  Both have now sadly passed away but their memory and legacy live on through the Reunion.

The Reunion is headed by our beloved President JOE D'ORAZIO and each year we bring together legendary wrestlers, officials and fans from all over the World to welcome each other and to share a day of camaraderie and fun in a peaceful setting.

So, whether you are a seasoned Professional, retired or still wrestling, a young wrestler starting your career, official or a wrestling supporter, there is sure to be something of interest in these pages.

Come inside and join our fraternity today for a veritable feast of wrestling in the 'Ring of Friendship' where you will receive a warm welcome like no other.

The British Wrestlers Reunion is non profit making, any donations received are put towards the Reunion day in August.
