A wrestling show originally scheduled to be taking place in Great Yarmouth has been moved to Costessey, near Norwich, following the eviction of Retroskate.
The grapplers of World Association of Wrestling were set to perform at the rink, however, due to the ongoing issues at the venue, the event has been moved.
Wrestling fans from the town will now have to travel to the Breckland Centre in Costessey for the Easter Sunday show.
A statement on the WAW website said: 'This Sunday's show which was scheduled to take place at Retroskate, Great Yarmouth has been moved to the Breckland Centre, Costessey due to unforeseen circumstances surrounding the venue. The show remains headlined by former Undisputed World Heavyweight Champion Mr Anderson despite the move.'
The news comes just hours after Retroskate was boarded up on behalf of landlords Sentinel, whose managing director Stuart Everett said he had contacted WAW to offer support for the event.
Zak Knight, WAW co-owner previously said more than 100 tickets had already been sold for the event, which was due to happen just more than a week after scenes for The Rock's Fighting With My Family were filmed on the seafront.
Tickets for the show, which will also feature members of The Knight Family, on whom the film is based, are £8 for adults, £6 for children or £25 for a family.
The event is one of two the promotion is hosting over the weekend, with a performance also scheduled for Beccles Public Hall and Theatre on Easter Saturday.
