On Saturday WrestleZone announced that Aberdeen Anarchy would once again take place in the summer with June 1st as the confirmed date. Due to scheduling conflicts, the event will take place next door to The Beach Ballroom at the Beach Leisure Centre in Aberdeen that has seen such stars as Drew McIntyre, Doug Williams, Nikki Cross and Mick Foley grace the ring at past events. Every year guesses are made as to who the guest or guests will be for the Granite City supershow and every year most people are wrong but somehow WrestleZone provide an incredible line up without fail. It’s early, 7 months early, but lets get some speculation going… who will be coming to Aberdeen Anarchy 2019?
The former WWE Cruiserweight and NXT Champion Neville has recently started taking bookings in the UK following his release from WWE. Pac found his calling as the villainous ‘King of the Cruiserweights’ to go with his awe-inspiring moveset in WWE and it looks like he’s continuing that course on the independent circuit. I could see Pac reigniting matches with Bingo Ballance, having faced each other in 2006, 2007 and 2011 in England and Ireland it would be great to see them go at it on WrestleZone’s grandest stage.
JTG and Shad Gaspard aren’t strangers to wrestling in Scotland with them being on the debut Discovery Wrestling show four years ago. Of all the guests that WrestleZone have brought in for Aberdeen Anarchy they’ve never had a tag team. Cryme Tyme are a fun team that never really hit the heights they should’ve in WWE. As far as opponents go, I could see them in a big six man tag with Grado to take on a dastardly trio, like Pure Dead Brilliant, for a good time that all can enjoy.
Imagine hearing The Brood theme play at the Beach Leisure Centre? Gangrel does regular UK tours so it isn’t outside the realm of possibility. The Vampire Warrior is heading to Aberdeen in a few weeks which will see him sink his teeth into The Granite City for the first time. No idea who I would have him up against but maybe throwing him in with a Shawn Johnson, or even a Scotty Swift (who would be the ultimate warrior eh, eh… eh?) would be fun.
James Ellsworth versus Lou King Sharp anyone? Ellsworth had an amazing WWE journey, being heavily featured during the WWE Championship story between AJ Styles and Dean Ambrose, including picking up victories over Styles in the process. His smug, punch-able face during his run with Carmella was entertaining and he would be a fantastic addition to the Aberdeen Anarchy line up.
The story was set in 2017 when Sammii Jayne got in the face of the former WWE Women’s and Divas Champion. They were originally set to face each other at the event but an injury caused Melina to only be able to accompany her replacement, Viper, in a tables match. There’s unfinished business there and Aberdeen Anarchy 2019 could be the place to see it settled.
Tickets are available on Monday at Forbidden Planet in Aberdeen along with being on sale over at www.ringsideworld.co.uk.
