WrestleZone presents “Proving Grounds” 2017
Zach Dynamite def. Nathan North
Alan Sterling def. Bradley Evans
Tri-Counties Title: Aspen Faith def. Aaron Echo & Kreiger
Tag Titles: The Rejected def. Damien & Shawn Johnson
Fans packed the Cairncry Community Centre in Aberdeen this past Saturday night for our annual “Proving Grounds” extravaganza. The night would feature championship defences, new faces and bags of fun as the WrestleZone stars got back to business.
Our web team looks back at the three things we learned from the weekend show as we look forward to the build to Battle of the Nations.
1 – Scotty V Crusher is on!
A huge grudge match awaits us on Saturday 2nd September with Crusher Craib and Scotty Swift signing on the dotted line for a bout at the Northern Hotel. However, matters did not end well for the Red-Haired Warrior as the force of Crusher’s big boot sent him tumbling through a table, and the sight of seeing the former Undisputed Champion being carried out was just too much for some fans. Indeed, Crusher appears to have the upper hand heading into this bout and we expect an electric atmosphere when these two mortal enemies collide!
2 – More trouble ahead for Damien?
The night’s main event marked another victorious moment for The Rejected, with Chris Archer scoring the winning pinfall over Damien after a tense contest! However, the real story here was the conclusion to the event which would see Shawn Johnson elect to walk out on the Revolutionary after the bout, disgusted with Damien losing Sterling Oil another match. While Richard R. Russell continued to be absent following his Aberdeen Anarchy humiliation, he has a lot of work to do to get Damien back to his best!
3 – New faces make their mark
The night would see Glasgow grapplers Aaron Echo and Kreiger make their debuts, both as challengers to Aspen Faith for the Tri-Counties Championship. And while the King of Catch was victorious in the bout – with a big assist from Sammii Jayne – the WrestleZone fans are talking all about the challengers here, who made a lasting impression. Kreiger’s delusional dancing did nothing to endear himself with the audience, however Aaron Echo proved he has the skills to hang in the WrestleZone. We don’t think this will be either’s last steps into the WrestleZone action, with Proving Grounds just the beginning!
