Former WWE Superstar James Ellsworth has been confirmed for a UK bout against one of the premier Deathmatch performers in the world…
The former PROGRESS Wrestling World Champion and CZW Tournament of Death 2017 winner Jimmy Havoc will be taking on Ellsworth as part of IPW:UK’s ‘Chin Up Son’ event which takes place on Wednesday 2nd May from Unit 9 in Milton Keynes, England. Ellsworth has been appearing sporadically on the independent scene since his WWE departure, he faced former UFC star Matt Riddle as part of Joey Janela’s Spring Break 2 event this past weekend in a quick 3 minute match.
This match against Havoc marks his debut in the United Kingdom outside of the WWE…which is quite a way to debut on one of the hottest scenes in the World. Fans of the UK promotion have been quick to ask for a Deathmatch stipulation to be added to the bout but IPW:UK has not yet commented on this, we will update you if this changes, you can see Ellsworth’s reaction to the match via the tweet below.
Tickets for the show are available to purchase now via IPW:UK’s official site.
