Source Wrestling have announced their introducing their first championship, the Source Championship. They released the following statement on Facebook;
We here at Source Wrestling are proud to announce the introduction of Source Championship.
To find our first ever champion we’ve decided to run a tournament, but this will be something a little different on July 13th, 14th & 15th.
16 Wrestlers (No Gender restrictions)
In the upcoming weeks we will be announcing the 16 wrestlers that will be competing for the right to call themselves the first ever Source Champion.
All 3 nights will be taking place at –
Source Wrestling School
22 Cogan Street,
Outside of the tournament matches we also have some very interesting matches as well.
With no gender restriction on the championship, who knows who could be the first champion. Here are my five picks to lift the gold come July!
Although this tournament could be used to cement the legacy of a young up and comer, I’d still expect to see one or two more experienced names in the field of 16. That brings me to my first pick, one of the trainers at the Source Wrestling School in the form of Lewis Girvan. The Renegade has built a reputation for himself as one of the best technical wrestlers in the world today, with a record-breaking reign of 666 days with the Y Division Championship over in Discovery Wrestling. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind adding the Source Championship to his ever-growing list of accolades.
Robbie Solar has been lighting up crowds up and down the country with his daredevil acrobatics. The high-flying sensation is a perennial fan favourite and will do all he can to hopefully walk away with a victory every time he steps in the ring. The Scottish Luchador recently won the SWA Tag Team Championships alongside Lucha DS at the end of last month and would surely be hoping to add more gold to his trophy cabinet.
Another man who recently won gold in SWA is Kieran Kelly. Kelly became the new Scottish Junior Heavyweight Champion by defeating Dickie Divers at the end of March, with the title being renamed to the Scottish X Championship. Since debuting, Kelly has left a lasting impression on crowds, making it to the semifinals of last year’s Asylum Invitational Tournament, losing out to The Sam Barbour Experience. Providing he’s not still keeping an eye on the ongoing Falls Count Anywhere Match between Joe Hendry and Chris Renfrew, I’m sure he’d be on the list of possible entrants.
One of the more recent graduates from the Source Wrestling School is Craig Anthony. Craig only began his training in February 2017, but an injury forced his in-ring debut to be pushed back to March of this year. The Natural has impressed his trainers aswell as the coaches at GPWA, which resulted in him being put forward for next month’s Drew Galloway Invitational Tournament. The tournament could be a huge stepping stone in the career of Craig Anthony and I could see him lifting that gold come July 15th.
With no gender restrictions on the Source Championship, expect to see one or two female entrants in the tournament. Sammie Jo has been making a statement in Source Wrestling and wherever else she goes. Imagine the impact she could make if she was able to become the first Source Champion. I’m sure that would inspire a few aspiring female wrestlers.
Who do you want to become the inaugural Source Champion?
