Portobello Town Hall, Edinburgh
On June 23rd Discovery Wrestling continues it’s run of action packed events with more tournament bouts, more debuts and more dream matches taking place as only Discovery can do.
The big match is The Kings of Catch officially teaming up for the first time in a Discovery Wrestling ring when they take on a dream team of Joe Coffey and Joe Hendry. The catch with this one is that if Joe Squared win, Joe Coffey gets another shot at Lewis Girvan’s Y Division Championship. If the Kings win then that’s it for Joe Coffey. He will no longer get a title shot as long as Girvan is champion. Take a look at the title calibre involved in this match. Discovery Wrestling Y Division Champion Lewis Girvan, WrestleZone Tri-Counties Champion Aspen Faith, WCPW Heavyweight Champion Joe Hendry and ICW World Heavyweight Champion Joe Coffey. Star studded, all in one match. Worth the ticket price alone.
Another match on this line up that is glittering with gold is the first of two Women’s Championship Tournament matches. Pro Wrestling: EVE Champion Sammii Jayne against PROGRESS Women’s Champion Toni Storm. A match that looks great on paper and will be glorious in the ring.
The second Women’s Championship Tournament match sees a re-imagining of Bete Noire, a darker, more dangerous version. Jayla Dark makes her Discovery re-debut against someone who hasn’t been in Discovery for over a year in Lucy Cole. Cole will be looking to show the Discovery faithful that she has learned a thing or two since her last appearance. We’ll find out who will be joining Martina and Nina Samuels.
The Headbanders have been tearing it up in Reckless Intent, a popular duo who have worked hard to earn themselves a spot in the Uncivil War contenders. Mills and Grady take on a team that have been running roughshod over Disco since they debuted, since they lost to Polo Promotions they have become more and more hungry to dish out punishment and angry about losing, so hangry. The winners will move on to face Fight Club, Deviation & Dave Conrad and one other team in Uncivil War. A big opportunity for both teams to be crowned Discovery Wrestling Tag Team Champions.
The latest Hotter Than Hell Edinburgh Invitational qualifier takes place with the added intrigue, Dave Conrad will face a wildcard entry. The last wildcard entrant in this tournament turned out to be Matt Riddle so anticipation is high to find out who will be the one taking on ‘The One True Alpha’. Could it be a return or another debut? The winner will join Chris Ridgeway, Mikey Whiplash and Aspen Faith in the next round.
Plus Lucha Underground star Angelico returns when he takes on the debuting Joseph Connors. Connors is still riding the wave of momentum following his WWE debut in the United Kingdom Tournament.
All this and Christopher Saynt has suggested an appearance. Perhaps the patriarch of the House of Saynt will be out recruiting.
Tickets are still available from Discovery Wrestling’s online shop http://shop.discoverywrestling.com and will be On Demand where we will be reviewing the event shortly afterwards.
