Team 3D: Dudley Boyz
Team 3D: Dudley Boyz

Preston City Wrestling is celebrating the visit of Team 3D tonight by launching its first live blog.

The sold-out show will see the most decorated duo of all time, otherwise known as The Dudley Boyz, clash with PCW’s tag team champions, Team Single.

Hundreds of fans are expected to attend the event, titled ‘Just Get In The Bloody Ring’, at Club Evoque in Church Street, Preston.

But those who aren’t lucky enough to have a ticket can still follow the action on the company’s website, www.prestoncitywrestling.com

Bully Ray and Devon, previously known as Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley, will face Tyson T-Bone and Rampage Brown in what will be their first European independent appearance.

The Dudley Boyz won 10 tag titles during a six-year spell with WWE, including the World, WWE and WCW belts, after a record eight reigns as tag team champions in ECW.

Moving to TNA Wrestling in 2005, where they were rechristened Team 3D after their Dudley Death Drop finishing move, they went on to clinch the NWA and TNA tag team titles, and twice held New Japan Pro Wrestling’s IWGP Tag Team Championship.

The duo recently reunited following a spell as singles wrestlers, during which time Bully Ray twice won the TNA World Heavyweight Championship and Devon clinched the TNA Television Championship. Earlier this year the pairing were revealed as the third inductees into the TNA Hall of Fame.

The event is also set to feature another ex-WWE pairing.

Two-time world tag team champions Paul London and Brian Kendrick will compete in singles action, with Kendrick facing PCW’s Cruiserweight Champion Bubblegum with his title on the line, and London taking on Scotland’s Noam Dar.

Dave Mastiff and Joey Hayes will collide as they look to earn the right to face the PCW Heavyweight Champion Chris Masters at Fright Night III next month.

The Mexican sensation El Ligero meets the Egyptian cobra Ophidian, in a match that guarantees high flying action and perhaps the most illegal move in the history of wrestling

‘Delicious’ Danny Hope faces East London’s Sha Samuels, who destroyed Hope’s tag team partner Mad Man Manson at PCW’s last show.

Meanwhile, Manson faces the 5 Dollar Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion Freight Train.

And in a yet to be confirmed bout, Martin Kirby, Dean Allmark and Charlie Garrett, who replaces the injured Kris Travis, will square off against an unnamed opponent in a fatal four-way encounter.

Doors open at 6pm with first bell at 7pm.
