For the first time ever, W3L’s annual Seven Deadly Sins tournament took place across two shows, with the battle royale and first round singles matches taking place on the Saturday afternoon in Stockton and the submission only semi-finals and last man standing final taking place on the Saturday evening in Harrogate.
