WRESTLING: It's over and out for Runcorn Wrestling Academy founder Andrew Baker.
He was knocked off the school's roster after losing his grudge match to Sean Phoenix in the St Patrick's Day Massacre event at Grangeway Community Centre.
Phoenix retained his RWA title by winning the four-corners strap contest.
In a memorable finish, Baker had dumped Phoenix to the outside and struggled around the ring to touch the cor ners.
But Phoenix recovered to deal Baker a fearful blow to the face with a kendo stick. The loser was given a standing ovation as he said his farewell to fans.
'I would just like to say a big thank you to all the fans at RWA and all the management and roster for all their support and hard work,' said Baker.
'I am no longer part of the RWA roster and, therefore, owner (Neil Davis) has had to give me my last day as head trainer on Saturday, April 21.
'Training will then resume as normal as Mr Davis will be appointing a new team of trainers.
'I really don't know what I will do now. I will have to take each day as it comes.'
Davis said: 'It's a crying shame to lose such a valuable member of our roster and to end what was otherwise a successful night in that way.
'From myself and on behalf of the RWA, I wish Andrew Baker the best for the future.'
Phoenix will make a further defence of his title during Heart and Soul 2, again at Grangeway, on Saturday, April 28 (doors open 6.30pm, 7.30pm start). Tickets are £4 in advance and £5 (£4 concessions) at the door.
