SWA Show dates 2012 - All the information


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

The SWA committee has made moves to ensure that whatever the outcome of the Laird of the Ring Championship at Rebirth, there will be a number 1 contender to take them on in Govan, Saturday April 7th. With a plethora of high-end talent worthy of competing in such a match, the committee has decided to put three massive names together in a three way dance. The first of the three has just come off a hugely successful year, taking the T-Division and After Hours titles, and breaking out all over Scotland. With a new look and attitude, the first competitor is the innovative, the athletic and down right demented Dickie Divers.


His first opponent is a former Heavyweight and Tag Team Champion who recently threw down his mask, turned his back on his friends and fans, and vowed that 2012 would be a year like none other in SWA. "SWAs bird of prey" Falcon has a huge chip on his shoulder and he fully intends to regain previous glories, no matter what obstacle.


The third and final competitor in the match up is another former Heavyweight Champion who has had yet another fantastic year. One of the most exciting competitors to ever step in a SWA ring, the high octane, high velocity and hugely successful BT Gunn. This should be an epic!!!




The card so far!

Fresh off their victory in John Graham's hometown of Motherwell, the Weapons of Mass Destruction put a challenge out to the whole SWA roster putting their Tag Titles on the line any time, anywhere! The quick success of the dominant tag team hasn't gone unnoticed and the two men are breaking out all over Scotland, and have added further gold to their name. This has irritated multiple people on the roster, and plenty of competitors outside. But none moreso than "Lord of the Manor" Paul Tracey.


Paul has had great success in singles and tag competition, and has recently returned from a highly successful tour of Japan. He commented to the SWA committee recently: "These men are nothing short of brutes, ogres almost, although thats an insult to ogres! There is impressive strength and agility of course, but there is no intelligence; No style. The Lord of the Manor is infused with both, and he'll prove this in the rat infested, peasant hovel of Paisley!"


His partner? Well, Tracey said there are only two or three men in the world worthy of such an accolade, and we were not surprised to find that he had named "Sir" Mark Anthony as his tag team partner. Anthony is a rising star in the SWA. A very, very talented competitor, infusing solid technical ability, with excellent agility, and an in-ring confidence far beyond his years. The two upper class gentlemen should compliment each other to no end, and with the experience of Tracey guiding the team forward, this could prove to be a short title reign for the WMD's!

Friday June 1st, Pearce Institute, Govan


A return 5 years in the making!




Damian O’Connor was on a roll in SWA, picking up huge victories over Paul Tracey, Jack Gallagher, Liam Thomson and many more, finally putting himself into the Scottish Title picture for the first time in his career…but O’Connor came crashing back down to earth in the Scottish Title number 1 contenders match in Paisley when he came across Mikey Whiplash.


Whiplash and Damo went toe to toe, and literally uppercut to uppercut, but Whiplash’s cunning skills and experience shone through, and thus Whiplash picked up the victory, setting up a date with Andy Anderson for the Scottish Heavyweight Title. It was after the match however, that Whiplash destroyed O’Connor’s arm, dislocating O’Connor’s elbow and rupturing ligaments.


In the weeks that followed, O’Connor pulled out of bookings and had to take time away from Source Wrestling School. Upon return he has been on a losing streak, not quite the man he was. Some closest to O’Connor think the problem lies mentally, as opposed to physically.


The SWA committee have been quick to act however and hopes to snap O’Connor out of his funk by putting him against one of the best opponents they could find, the world over. They have settled upon a man O’Connor greatly admires, a British wrestler who has had unparalleled success, TNA superstar, Doug Williams!


Williams, not a stranger to the SWA ring having performed at the very first Gathering in 2007, has had an amazing 20 year career. He has wrestled all over the UK and Europe, performed for Pro Wrestling NOAH in Japan, and numerous companies in the US including ROH, before finding great success with TNA.


Williams is excited to return, and is more than happy to throw his name in the hat for the Scottish Heavyweight Title, and the SWA committee can confirm that this match with O’Connor will slingshot him into contention should he win.


For O’Connor this is a massive opportunity to pick himself up, dust himself off and get his eyes back on the prize. It also gives him an opportunity to tangle with and learn from a wrestler he greatly admires. For Doug Williams this is an opportunity to put another feather into an already impressive cap. With both men so well versed in technical wrestling, this could prove to be quite the clinic!



The biggest test to a young Chamion



Speaking of Whiplash – Its an understatement to say that he made quite an impact on his SWA debut. After a hard fought, gruelling match up, he defeated Damian O’Connor for the Scottish Title Number 1 contendership and then put Damo out of action for 2 months, dislocating his elbow post match. Whiplash made a statement there and then that he was here for the Scottish Title, and would eliminate any and all competition along the way.


That brings us to Scottish Heavyweight Champion Andy Anderson. Anderson, the “Surprise Package” is the youngest Heavyweight Champion is Scottish history, has managed to travel the lengths and breadth of the world and down some massive names in such a short career. He has racked up some impressive title defences, most notably against rising star Jack Gallagher. His confidence seems to be growing by the match, and he looked set to hold the title for a long time….until Whiplash came into the fold.


Whiplash is a 13 year veteran, has wrestled against and defeated some of the very best in the world. He’s experienced, is in great shape and is a proper student of the game. What makes him more formidable, is that he has recently sided with the dominatrix Lolita, and has declared himself the Human Torture Device. He seems hell bent on not just taking Andy Anderson’s title, but showing Anderson what it takes to be a Champion. What it takes to be, in Whiplash’s mind….a man!


This will be Anderson’s biggest test to date. Can he withstand the constant barrage of offense that Whiplash will bring, manipulating each joint and muscle sinew, while using a cerebral attack unbeknown to Scottish and perhaps British Wrestling? Or can Anderson pull it off again? The wily underdog has the ability to steal victories from absolutely nowhere. Could Whiplash’s overconfidence work against him? Could Whiplash underestimate the “Surprise Package”? Either way, this story will unfold beautifully at Govan



Two men vying to push up the rankings





Dickie Divers has had one hell of a year. Being crowned After Hours Champion, Source Champion, feuding over the T-Division Trophy with CJ Hunter, as well as picking up massive victories over some big names, Divers has literally been one of the shining lights of SWA and all over Scotland over the last year.


But Divers isn’t one to stand on ceremony, and in Paisley he took that first step towards the Laird of the Ring Title match by becoming the Number 1 Contender after a frantic 3 Way with Falcon and BT Gunn. We at the SWA committee are delighted with Divers’ progress, and are looking forward to seeing him lock horns with the very best in Scotland. Therefore in Govan, the committee will put Divers alongside former SWA Tag Team Champion and multi-promotional Champion James Scott.


James Scott’s SWA career has been very stop/start. Originally debuting amidst one of the hottest periods in SWA’s history, Scott, along with tag partner Wolfgang literally jumped the barriers, forced their way into the ring and onto the SWA roster. Immediately they took the Tag Team gold and revolutioned the division. Since then Scott has appeared more sporadically, unable to find his groove. Elsewhere however, James Scott has been nothing less than a phenomenon, taking titles and scalps off some of the biggest names in wrestling today. Scott wants to set the record straight and get off the mark in SWA and has thus been harassing the SWA committee for an opportunity. We obviously recognise his phenomenal talent and are glad that Scott is available to supplement an already amazing roster.


Thus, a matchup between Scott and Divers is one with all kinds of possibilities. The two use a wide variety of martial arts kicks and strikes, as well as both being accustomed to taking their offense to the top rope, and in Divers’ case far beyond! We fully expect this to be an epic contest!

Saturday June 2nd, St. Bride's Hall, Motherwell





After a huge victory at Clash of the Titans, WMD's Nathan Black and John Graham will return to their home base of Motherwell on Saturday June 2nd not just as SWA Tag Team Champions - but Scottish National Tag Team champions after unifying both SWA and W3L's tag team championships. The team have been on a roll of late picking up wins at every turn and it's safe to say the team seem near unbeatable!


So who better to challenge them in Graham's home town than Scotland's most successful tag team of all time? In their many years together T2K have racked up more tag team championships than anyone else in Scottish history, and in recent years their singes careers have flourished seeing both men continue to collect heavyweight titles wherever they go.


Now that WMD have merged two regions tag championships into one national tag title the stakes have never been higher when it comes to SWA's tag division!







Manchesters Jack Gallagher is a rising star in British wrestling and no stranger to SWA in recent months. Having trained under Roy Wood at the legendary Snake Pit in Wigan, as well as with celebrated wrestler Billy Robinson among many others, Gallagher has become an excellent shoot and catch wrestler that as been making waves across the country. His fluid movements have been integrated perfectly into professional wrestling and he is literally chomping at the bit for competition which has seen him already tackle Damian O'Conor in our last trip to Motherwell, as well as make a bid for the Scottish Championship at Rebirth earlier this year.


So far, SWA Management are just as impressed with Gallagher as the rest of the country so when he made a special request to lock horns with our Laird Champion were more than happy to answer with good news.


Having solidified himself as the man to beat, Joe Coffey has become a huge force to be reckoned with in SWA. With a strong ring prowess and an every growing ability in the ring, Coffey has spent the better part of the past two years as Laird of the Ring Champion, plowing through every challenger with a determination to be the absolute best he can be.


Fresh off his Clash of the Titans encounter with NJPW icon Fergal Devitt, a match that has already been praised by fans and critics nationwide, Coffey is on top form and is ready to take on another challenge when he takes on a man who may be one of the few who can match Coffey in pure wrestling competition.





One of the most bizarre wrestlers in the country, Jester has always seemed to have a screw loose. Over the years he's managed to surprise, shock and throw his opponents off guard with his antics but despite putting on a show, he's also one of the toughest, most aggressive and most focused challengers we've ever seen step between the ropes. He was also part of SWA's most surprising moment in our companies history when he not only won a title shot on the first ever Gathering, but later went on to take home the Scottish title as well as earning himself a place in SWA's roster.


Andy Anderson had a much longer path to walk to become Scottish Champion, having had an opportunity stolen from him at Battlezone two years ago, only to gain a Money in the Bank title shot the following February. Slowly Anderson waited for the right moment and cashed his shot in to the surprise of Eric Canyon. Since then, Anderson has walked the path from underdog to champion having defeated every challenger to date with his tenacity and strength of heart.


As these two very different competitors lock horns, we'll see another tough battle, one that could be an uphill struggle for Anderson as he'll be facing another vicious opponent in Whiplash the night before! Can Andy hold onto the Title two nights in a row???






The rise of Dickie Divers has been hard to ignore in recent months. Aside from breaking out all over the country, the young SWA Star has been able to claim the After Hours Championship and a year later to the day, became the first Source Wrestling champion! In SWA his success looks to continue after winning a guaranteed title match for the Laird of the Ring championship. Having evolved into a cheeky young chap that it's impossible not to cheer for, Divers has became a huge favourite in SWA and for good reason.


In contrast to the boyish charm of Divers, Mark Anthony seems to do nothing but rile up crowds across the country with his upper class wealth being thrown in everyone's faces at every opportunity.


As Anthony's aggressive style, insulting attitude and powerhouse style finds itself up against the favoured flyer, will Divers' streak of good fortune end? Or will he overcome the odds yet again?




The card so far:
