Family-friendly wrestling returns to Stonehaven this weekend with one of the biggest grapplers in the North-east on the title hunt.

At a towering 6ft 6 inches and over 16 stone, Crusher Craib is a man who leaves his fellow wrestlers quaking in their wrestling boots.

The 25-year-old wrestler has his eyes on an Undisputed Championship match at the Aberdeen Beach Ballroom in June, but first he must get through a bout as body-slamming action returns to the Town Hall, Allardice Street.

With his eyes on the prize, Crusher will need to be in top form when he squares off with Brian Starr this Saturday, May 4.

He said: “The Undisputed Championship match is on the horizon, and I am determined to be the dominant force in the WrestleZone.

“This match is going to be a stepping stone going forward to the Beach Ballroom.

“In Stonehaven, I am going to make sure that I crush Brian Starr’s hopes and dreams, and go on to become WrestleZone champion this June.”


The bone-crunching action has become an annual tradition at the town hall, with the grapplers once again set to host a raffle in aide of the Town Hall Trust.

WrestleZone spokesman Martyn Clunes is delighted to return to the Mearns capital, and promises a great night for wrestling fans of all ages.

He said: “Our events bring a great atmosphere to the town, and we expect another bumper crowd on hand for this one.

“Preparations for our event on June 1 at the Beach Ballroom continue, where we will be joined by American stars Hacksaw Jim Duggan and Billy Gunn.

“Stonehaven is the last step on the road to Aberdeen Anarchy, and I am sure all the grapplers will want to put themselves in pole position for a spot on that card, by winning their bouts at the town hall.”

Also set for action at the event are popular grapplers such as Scotty Swift, Bryan Tucker, Shawn Johnson and Chris Archer.

Current champion, Johnny Lions, will also defend the Undisputed Championship at the event.

Doors at the Town Hall open at 7pm with the action getting under way at 7.30.

Entry is pay-at-the-door priced £10 for adults and £7 for under 14s.
