We are 3 weeks away from Aberdeen Anarchy 2018, taking place on September 1st at The Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen it’s the biggest night on the wrestling calendar in the North East. To celebrate we’ll be posting several articles on the lead up to the event with flashback reviews, lists and previews hyping up Aberdeen Anarchy.
We continue the countdown of the Top 10 moments in Aberdeen Anarchy history that took place at The Beach Ballroom with number 2, a shocking turn from last year’s event.
The Beast Rejoins Sterling Oil (2017)
At the 2016 Aberdeen Anarchy event, Scotty Swift defeated Crusher Craib to retain the Undisputed WrestleZone Championship but that wasn’t the whole story. Craib missed a top rope splash that saw him break his hip socket that lead to the night ending with him being stretchered out of the building. Craib then went into hiding while recovering and rehabbing his injury.
Fast forward to the 2017 event and it was announced that Crusher Craib would return to make an announcement. Minds were racing and chins were wagging as to what it could be, was it retirement or was it a return to the ring?
On the night, Craib announced that he would return to the ring at Battle of the Nations that year but no opponent announced. It was made clear who it would be at the end of the night. Craib took his place on commentary for the rest of the evening.
Scotty Swift once again defended the Undisputed WrestleZone Championship against Sterling Oil’s Shawn Johnson. As the match progressed it wasn’t long before the rest of Sterling Oil got involved. Craib came to the rescue, looking like he would save ‘The Red Haired Warrior’ but he kicked Swift in the face allowing Johnson to pick up the win and the Undisputed WrestleZone Championship.
Craib unzipped his hoodie to reveal a Sterling Oil vest. A shocking twist seeing the Beast once again join Sterling Oil after leaving them 5 years prior.
It was revealed after the event that Richard R. Russell picked up the medical costs of Craib’s injury and looked after ‘The Creator of Carnage’ during his time away.
