Grappling action returns to Ellon this Saturday (June 27) with an action-packed pro-wrestling bill.
The WrestleZone event takes place at the Victoria Hall with the main bout featuring new undisputed champion Scotty Swift defending his title against Fife’s Johnny Lions.
I will need to be at my best for this matchScotty Swift Titleholder
It will be the “Red-Haired Warrior’s” first defence since winning the belt in front of 1,312 fans at the Beach Ballroom last month – and the Aberdeen favourite can’t wait to get back in action.
Scotty said: “Winning this championship was the culmination of seven years of hard work, guts and determination.
“To do it in front of my hometown fans was special and a moment that I’ll never forgot. But there is no time for sentiment as the challengers are already lining up to take the title away from me.
“Johnny Lions has a lot of experience in the wrestling ring, having held the undisputed championship twice before. I know that this will be a tough bout but they aren’t going to get any easier.
“I am ready to defend this title and determined to hold onto this honour for a long time to come.”
Scotty is one of the most popular faces of Aberdeen-based group WrestleZone, who host pro-wrestling bouts across the North-east.
He has an impressive record in events held at the Victoria Hall and the new champion is determined to continue his momentum on Saturday.
Scotty added: “Being the champion puts a target on my back but I am ready for all challengers.
“My record in Ellon is pretty good but I’ve had a lot of luck along the way. The fans who come and support us always give us a great backing, and I’m looking forward to more of the same.
“I will need to be at my best for this match with Johnny Lions and I hope to give the fans a great night en route to retaining the undisputed championship.”
There will also be a defence of the tag team championships as the Hotshots face the Dogs of War, while Kaden Garrick, Crusher Craib and Mr P will all be in action.
