5 Star Wrestling has announced the main event for their next live show on the UK’s FreeSports channel this Thursday. 5 Star Wrestling Champion John Morrison will be facing former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Jack Swagger for the belt inside Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena.

The company sent out the following press release hyping the match:

‘The All-American American’ Jake Hager will challenge John Morrison for the 5 Star Championship next Thursday night (February 8) at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle. This main event match was confirmed on Thursday night’s historic 5 Star Wrestling:LIVE on FreeSports broadcast as Hager defeated ‘English Lion’ Eddie Ryan then Morrison retained his belt against Rob Van Dam. Hager has vowed that he is in 5 Star Wrestling to become champion ever since he was unveiled as the company’s big money signing at a press conference in Sheffield in January. And the big Oklahoman reiterated this statement before he narrowly defeated his nemesis Ryan in an exciting bout at Liverpool Echo Arena. Meanwhile Morrison recorded his sixth successful defence in what is turning out to be an epic reign. Rob Van Dam joins AJ Styles, PJ Black, Carlito, Moose, Drew Galloway and Rey Mysterio as a who’s who of names that ‘The Shaman of Sexy’ has beaten in 5 Star Championship matches.
