THE glitz and glamour of professional wrestling returns to the Broch later this month – with one grappler looking to make a big impression.
Scotty Swift is just one of the wrestlers scheduled to compete at the showpiece WrestleZone event at the Fraserburgh Leisure Centre on June 25th. The event will feature some of Scotland’s top wrestlers engaging in bone-crunching, muscle-bending combat.
The event marks a milestone for Swift (30) as he attempts to re-establish his title credentials after losing the WrestleZone championship earlier this year.
The popular fan-favourite believes that a win in the Broch will continue his bid to get back into the title picture – and could create history along the way.
He continued: “This will be an important event for me as it marks the latest test on the road to rebuilding my career.
“In Fraserburgh, I will be teaming with Bryan Tucker to take-on the undefeated Crusher Craib and James Midas, and what is for sure, it should be a cracking match.
“The last time I wrestled in the Broch, I scored the biggest win of my career by defeating Kid Fite and that really set me on the road to glory.
“Both Crusher and Midas remain undefeated in the WrestleZone, but that’s something that I want to change. Tucker and I will be going all out for victory in Fraserburgh and hopefully we can create a little bit of history.”
The special tag team attraction headlines a night of family-friendly entertainment at the Leisure Centre.
Swift’s tag team partner Tucker also has intentions on climbing the WrestleZone ladder. The 26-year-old ended his 30-match losing streak earlier this month by winning the Regal Rumble match, and now wants to score a pinfall victory to add to his earlier success.
“Winning the rumble was great, but I see it as just the beginning of my career,” Tucker said.
“Scotty and I are good friends and having trained alongside him, I feel we have a good understanding.
“No doubt, both Crusher and Midas are great competitors, but lets hope that on the night we can be the better team and finally end the undefeated streak.”
Also scheduled for the event is a grappler making waves in Scottish wrestling, Glasgwegian BT Gunn. He will be representing Scotland when he faces Englishman Andy Wild in a special International Challenge match. Plus, Los Cystos will defend the tag titles against Sterling Oil.
Tickets are available now from the Leisure Centre, priced £8 for adults and £6 for children. Any remaining tickets will be available on the doors when they open at 7pm, with the action getting underway at 7.30pm.
