PRO-WRESTLING returns to Royal Deeside this month and one grappler in particular has a big point to prove.
New recruit Jimbo Bannon (25) is taking his first steps in the sport having previously competed in mixed- martial arts (MMA), and so far it has been a mixed bag for the Aberdonian.
In his two previous contests, Bannon has won one and lost one, and now heads into a bout with the outlandish Lord Mr. Malice at Banchory Town Hall.
The match is one of six taking place next Saturday (August 27 th ) and Bannon knows he can make a big reputation for himself with victory at the family-friendly event.
He continued: “There is no way you will see me underestimate Lord Mr. Malice. I am taking my first steps into the wrestling world and every match has a new lesson.
“Malice can get nasty and vicious, and I’ve spent a lot of time looking at what he will bring to this contest.
“But I am confident in my training and abilities and in Banchory, it’s time to show everyone exactly what I’ve got.”
The sixth annual event at the Banchory Town Hall will feature local grapplers such as Scotty Swift, Bryan Tucker and Mr. P as the grappling game returns to Royal Deeside.
The event offer fans of all ages the chance to see a mixtures of wrestling styles, with WrestleZone also offering the chance to meet-the- wrestlers at the events.
Doors at open at 7pm next Saturday with the action underway at 7.30pm. Admission is pay- at-the- door only priced £12 for adults and £10 for under 14s.
