“A Night For Lionheart” will take place on the 28th of July from the Evoque Night club. The proceeds of the event are going to the family of Lionheart to cover funeral costs. More information for the event can be found here.
The full line up has yet to be announced but a Memorial Trophy Tournament will headline the show. It has also been confirmed that Ashton Smith, Sha Samuels and Ligero will be attending the show, thanking WWE in a tweet for letting him compete.
This Friday night I’ll be making a return to @PCW_UK for this tremendous cause, as British wrestling pays tribute to the life of one of the building blocks of the scene, Adrian ‘Lionheart’ McCallum.

It is expected that other WWE talents like Noam Dar, The Coffey Brothers and Dave Mastiff may also be competing or attending since they have worked with Lionheart in the past.
Friday night is gonna be emotional❤️ if there’s ever a place where me and Adrian became so close it’s DEFINITELY Evoque, we were two blokes in our 30’s desperately trying to relive our 20s😂
We had the best times here please come along and show support and share your memories🍻 pic.twitter.com/lPCCTnfXnA

Adrian “Lionheart” McCallum passed away last week at the age of 36. Once again, that show is taking place on this Friday and has been heavily advertised by worldwide wrestlers across Twitter. If you are in the area, it may definitely worth going to, especially since it’s going to a good cause. Tickets for the event can be found here.
UK fans: This Friday, PCW dedicates the night to our brother Lionheart.
I encourage you to attend, boo, cheer, share your energy with the boys and girls who will give you a helluva show for a guy who loved our business and the fans as much as anyone I've ever known. #lionheart pic.twitter.com/hGkFHBzFnk
