The Betteridge Centre hosted a family-friendly night of pro-wrestling action as the bone-benders returned to Newtonhill on Saturday.

The annual event from WrestleZone featured a successful defence of the tag team titles by champions The Rejected, while Bryan Tucker overcame the odds to defeat Andy Wild in the quarter-finals of the Tri-Counties Championship tournament.

In a grudge encounter, Mr. P was left feeling the heat as he lost out in controversial circumstances to main rival

Kaden Garrick. Women’s wrestling also returned to the North-East as Sammii Jayne earned the submission victory in her bout with Debbie Sharp, while Aspen Faith was victorious in a triple threat match.

In the night’s main event – a six-man tag team match – there was a shock as Shawn Johnson scored the winning fall, pinning Scotty Swift to end a great night of action in Newtonhill.

WrestleZone host Martyn Clunes said: “The fans turned out in support for the wrestlers and they witnessed a great night of action in Newtonhill.

“As the last stop on the road to the Regal Rumble, the grapplers with victories now have momentum on their side.

“Shawn Johnson’s victory is particularly important and we will see if he can continue to capitalise when we are next in action.”

WrestleZone return to the Mearns area on Saturday, May 13 when they will be in action at Stonehaven Town Hall.
