On December 28th 2020, a new promotion was announced in Ayrshire coming soon, Pro2 Championship Wrestling. Aimed to showcase new and established talent. Sponsored by Atlas 2.0, and first conceived in 2010, former Scottish pro wrestling tag team champion Logan Storm has been announcing his intentions with Pro2 over the past weeks.
What’s the story behind the name? Pro2 will be featured in the Ayrshire area, Ayr, o2… get it? Pro2 Championship Wrestling. Simple.
On Facebook they’ve revealed their championship divisions and title designs:
- Believe Champion (Ayrshire Heavyweight)
- Joker Champion (Why So Serious? Division)
- Women’s Champion (Ayrshire Women’s)
- Tag Team Champions (Ayrshire Tag)
Their first show ‘Return of the Ring’ has been confirmed, however, due to the ongoing pandemic dates and venues are yet to be announced with the hopes of debuting in 2021.
‘Return of the Ring’ will feature a tournament to crown the first Believe Champion with ‘Jokers Wild’ likely to feature a tournament to crown the first Joker Champion.
The Joker Championship as part of the Why So Serious? Division will showcase the technical prowess in pro wrestling and will be under the watchful eye of famed comedian and pro wrestling commentator Billy Kirkwood.
The Believe Championship features a lion rampant side plate in tribute to Ayrshire wrestler, the late Adrian ‘Lionheart’ McCallum.
They promise to bring a mix of new and established talent with the ongoing aim to work with promotions around the UK and Europe in order to bring the best to Ayrshire for Pro2 Championship Wrestling.
