Leva Bates

Ignite Wrestling (FL) issued the following details, revealing Leva Bates will be unable to compete at their April 22nd live event due to breaking her ankle last week, but will still make an appearance: 

Professional Wrestling is an unpredictable sport. Every person who steps foot inside the ring runs the risk of injury, or worse. It saddens us to announce that former WWE NXT star Leva Bates (Blue Pants) suffered a broken ankle during a match in Orlando, FL on April 8th. Due to this injury, Leva will be unable to compete at “IGNITE Wrestling LIVE” on April 22nd in Fort Pierce, FL. Fans shouldn’t be upset though, as Leva will still be in attendance at the event and will be holding a special meet ‘n greet. 

Due to Leva’s injury, this leaves IGNITE-newcomer Kennadi Brink without an opponent on April 22nd. We are pleased to announce that Leva’s replacement will be none other than Angel Rose! Angel impressed several members of IGNITE Wrestling management in her IGNITE debut match against Santana Garrett on March 25th. We are very excited to bring Angel back and see what her and Kennadi can do inside the ring together.

Tickets on sale now at IGNITEWrestling.com/Tickets or over the phone by calling the IGNITE Ticket Center at (772) 932-9BUY (Business Hours: 9am-6pm)! Tickets as low as $7 if purchased in advance!
