The Gordon Perspective: Discovery Wrestling Saturday July 16th Preview

Discovery Wrestling make their return to Portobello Town Hall, 3 months after an amazing show at the Edinburgh Corn Exchange that featured Jay Lethal defending the Ring of Honor title for the first time in Scotland.

The card is stacked with great matches for the crowd to cheer their favourites and boo the guys or girls they dislike. Here is a look at the action we will be looking forward to:

FOURWAY ELIMINATION MATCH
SEAN MERCER VS THEO DOROS VS CRAIG STEPHENS VS SHAWN JOHNSON

The four way elimination match returns and four guys who are from difeerent promotions and two of them are making their debuts, Shawn and Craig. Theo has been in action for Discovery before and he impressed the crowd in The Jam House when he last in the ring. Sean Mercer will start as the favourite, as he is on a great roll just now, so can he keep this going at the Town Hall or will messers Stephens, Doros and Johnson have something else to say?

BAE CLUB BREAK UP BRAWL
DEBBIE SHARPE VS SAMMI JAYNE

These two ladies have looked inseprable over their time in Discovery but things came to an abrupt end in the Corn Exchange when Sammii, who lost to Courtney, suffered a second defeat and Debbie then attacked her afterwards. A few I spoke to at the event agreed that this match would happen very soon and will go down on Saturday.

DANNY BOY RODGERS VS ASPEN FAITH

We haven’t seen Mr Rodgers for a while in the Discovery ring and he goes up against a man who lost a great submission to Lewis Girvan for the Interim Y-Division title. Aspen Faith will be looking at getting back on the winning streak he was on and get back into the picture for a title shot again down the road but he can’t look past a man who is talented in the ring and will be looking to win to join the guys looking to challenge for the gold.

JOE COFFEY VS DAVE CONRAD

We could be in for a classic knock down, drag out affair when these guys get into the ring. Joe Coffey was on an amazing role as he was undefeated in Discovery before losing to Jay Lethal in the Corn Exchange, while on the other hand Dave Conrad got involved in the ending to Damo’s match versus Deviation and now has to face Coffey who will be looking to get back to winning ways in Portobello.

BUFFET CLUB VS FIGHT CLUB

This match is gonna be a Scotland versus England war as both teams are so different in styles. While The Buffet Club’s Rob Cage and Gene Munney will be looking to continue their winning aways after beating Johnny Lions and ending it early to head for some food but Fight Club’s Kid Fite and Liam Thomson will wanting to mat wrestle the two Englishmen and come away with the big win. Should be an interesting encounter.

MICHAEL CHASE VS CHRISTOPHER SAYNT

In a possible match of the night candidate, Christopher Saynt will be looking to get back into contendership for the Y-Division title that he says is rightfully his but he lost a match versus current Interim Champion Lewis Girvan and is now blaming management for him not having it or in the title picture. Micheal Chase is coming of one of the biggest wins in his career when he beat, former WCW Crusierweight Champion, Juventud Guerrerra and is looking, like most of the roster, to get a shot at the title himself.

BIG DAMO VS CHRIS HERO

Last year when Chris Hero visited Portobello he was in a match of the year encounter with the Iron Man, Joe Coffey. He came up short but left a lasting taste in the fans mouths wanting to see more of the former WWE NXT star. He has been in many matches since his last outing in Scotland and will be looking at getting his first win in Discovery, while for Damo, who was in a war with Deviation last time out and having Dave Conrad at the back of his mind, he will be wanting to get a win over Hero and cement himself as one of the best competitors in the UK.

Will it be The Beast of Belfast victorious or will he be taken down by The Knock Out Artist?

It is gonna be another cracking show for the Discovery team and with the next show being only a month away, they will be looking to do a good job and hope to bring the fans back to the shows for months to come.

Til the next time.

Gordon Perspective out.
