In the past year SWA: Zero1 Scotland has been gone through a major transition in it’s goal to bring the people of Scotland the vest best in pro wrestling. From Kenny Omega, to Johnny Kidd, to Prince Devitt to Chuck Taylor to name a few have joined our international ranks in recent months while the hard working dedicated students at the Source Wrestling School have continued to improve with guest trainers such as OVW coach Nick Dinsmore, WWE talent scout Robbie Brookside, and former OVW coach and Impact Wrestling star Doug Williams.
Our efforts have helped make Scotland a hub for some of the finest wrestling in the UK and it’s with pride we announce that when we heard to Motherwell Concert Hall on October 12th, we’ll be bringing one of the finest pro wrestlers in the world today.
Having wrestled for the top promotions around the world including Toryumon, New Japan, WCW and WWE, Ultimo Dragon is one of the biggest wrestling stars in the free market today with over twenty-five years experience behind him. One of the most innovative, skilled and exciting wrestlers to step through the ropes, he is also the most decorated and has held the record for holding, and regularly defending, the most active championship titles.
With the talent and experience he has gained wrestling all over the world we are beyond proud to host Ultimo Dragon as he makes his way to SWA: Zero1 Scotland to take part in the huge Battlezone event this October.
Every year SWA invites 30 competitors to step into the Battlezone: A Royal Rumble style match where two men enter, and another follows every two minutes until all challengers have stepped through the ropes. One by one, each competitor is eliminated by being ejected from the ring until one man is left standing to become the next in line to the NWA Scottish Heavyweight Championship.
The Battlezone event represents the end of one chapter for SWA, and the beginning in a new one. After all the hard work it has taken to build the new SWA under the Zero1 Scotland banner, this years will also serve as a celebration of all we’ve achieved with the support of Scotland’s rabid and deeply passionate wrestling fans – and with Ultimo Dragon on board, the celebrations can’t get any bigger than that!
With wrestlers from all over the UK – and the world – already lining up to take part in our annual tradition, expect to see the finest SWA has to offer including Scottish Champion Mikey Whiplash, Laird Champion Joe Coffey, the shining light of British womens wrestling Nikki Storm, the ever popular Grado and many more as we head to Motherwell Concert Hall on October 12th!
