The Knight's family's new facility will serve as a base for their wrestling company World Association of Wrestling (WAW), along with their female division Bellatrix.

The family inspired American wrestling and movie star The Rock to create a new film based on their story, which is currently in production. They will host a grand opening event for the base, which will house their box office and a training facility, on Saturday, July 1 on Rose Lane.

The opening ceremony will include 20pc off WAW merchandise and the opportunity to meet the Knight family.

A raffle is being held on the day, with entrants in with a chance of winning four tickets to the WAW show on September 16.
