WrestleZone’s return to the Northern Hotel has come and gone as they presented the 2019 Regal Rumble last night in front of a raucous crowd. Championships were on the line, Aberdeen Anarchy matches were made, and by the end of the night, the entire landscape of WrestleZone had been flipped on its head with some shocking scenes.
A Sensational Comeback
When it was announced that RUDO Lightning would be returning to WrestleZone in this year’s Regal Rumble Match, it sent shockwaves through WZ. What was even more shocking was when he came out victorious in the match, lastly disposing of both Johnny Lions and Zach Dynamite. Not only that, but he then went on to use his Undisputed Championship opportunity then and there, challenging Damien after smacking him across the head with the Regal Rumble trophy. After a ref bump allowed RUDO to use the title belt on The Revolutionary, a new Undisputed Champion was crowned as we ushered in the era of RUDO Lightning. What this means for the main event at Aberdeen Anarchy is unknown but keep your eyes on WrestleZone’s social media pages, as they’ll no doubt have us informed in the days that follow.
Tag Title Showdown
The opener to the main show saw The Kings of Catch defend the Tag Team Championships against The Thunder Buddies and the team of Scotty Swift and Johnny Lions in a Triple Threat Match. It started off slowly but once things picked up, there was nothing referee Dennis Law could do as all six men brawled through the crowd, leading to the match being brought to an end. Board member Len Ironside then chimed in and said we would receive a decisive winner to this rivalry at Aberdeen Anarchy when the three teams collide once more inside a steel cage! It’ll still be chaotic, but at least it’ll be confined chaos.
Foundation Of The Future
During the Zach Dynamite & Jason Reed vs Damien & Mr P match, the latter team were on the verge of victory when Ryan Riley burst out and took P out with his protein shake bottle. Dynamite and Reed were victorious and post-match, it was revealed that Dynamite, Riley, and Bradley Evans had been working together all along. The Foundation of the Future is upon us, and they’re here to take over.
Crusher Craib has been demanding competition for a while now and after putting away Grado (albeit following a distraction from Alan Sterling), Len Ironside dropped another Aberdeen Anarchy announcement on us. At the Beach Leisure Centre, The Creator of Carnage will go up against Bingo Ballance and Lionheart in a colossal Triple Threat Match. This year’s Anarchy card is shaping up to be something truly special.
Training Academy Success
Throughout the night, we saw sprinkles of graduates of the WrestleZone Training Academy in action, from the pre-show contest to the formation of the new trio. The academy really shone through in the Regal Rumble Match though, with the likes of Ryan Riley, Dino Del Monte, and Ted O’Keefe putting in good showings. Caleb Valhalla basically killed a man (sadly, that man was Lord Mr Malice) and had a wild brawl with Kaden Garrick (there’s a match I’d watch over and over). The main guy we need to speak about though is Connor Inglis. He eliminated Crusher Craib within seconds of Craib entering the match, and had the fans chanting his name. This was his second match in front of a crowd, but you would never have guessed. More of him on shows please.
