Tradition Now Comes in Tartan
In Association with NWA-UK Hammerlock, Scottish Championship Wrestling are proud to announce the opening of their very own training centre. This centre will be known as Area 52 and will be home to the Young Lions Academy. The Training Centre itself will be based in Linwood. This is an announcement, which has been about three years in the making and will undoubtedly assist Scottish Championship Wrestling to progress further in the UK and Worldwide wrestling scene. SCW Managing Director, Kenny Morrison, has given us the following statement.
“I setup Scottish Championship Wrestling in September of 2001. Since then, we have run five shows and are preparing for our sixth. We have our own Scottish Heavyweight Champion, we have a roster filled with quality and a group of Young Lions that any Promotion would be proud to call their own. So, this is the next logical step for us to make. Negotiations have been ongoing for this since the end of 2003 and they were surprisingly quick in falling into place. These negotiations saw new investors come onboard, hence my new title of Managing Director, and obviously saw the affiliation with the NWA-UK Hammerlock promotion and purchase of the equipment. To say I’m happy is, quite frankly, the biggest understatement of my 31 years on this planet. In closing, I’d just like to thank everyone who has made this possible and say Tradition Now Comes in Tartan…who’d have thought it?”
Trainers: Training will be led by Conscience, whose wrestling CV is as impressive as just about anybody wrestling in the UK today. 2003 OVW/WWE Tryout Camp Attendee, former and first ever SCW Scottish Heavyweight Champion, former and first ever SCW King of Scotland, a major part of the NWA-UK Hammerlock roster and he has also wrestled for NWA Wildside, Southern Championship Wrestling in Florida and appeared in the XWF TV Tapings. Fully IBF insured in Ring Wrestling and Sombo Wrestling, Conscience will be assisted by SCW roster members Adam Shame and Eric ‘The Fist’ Canyon.
Guest Trainers: As of this moment, the guest trainers will include Drew ‘The Highlander From Hell’ McDonald (20 year veteran and current SCW Scottish Heavyweight Champion), Majik (Current NWA-UK Junior Heavyweight Champion), “The Vigilante” Johnny Moss (Former NWA-UK Heavyweight
