Discovery Wrestling finally has tag team champions!
At the O2 Academy in Edinburgh, Kings of the North cemented their place in Disco history and further underlined their reputation as the best tag team in Europe.
It all happened at an extremely action packed Tagged!
But what else went down?
Johnny Lions made his surprise Disco return during the VIP show and challenged Ryan Richards. It was the Supreme who came out on top after some questionable tactics. The gloves certainly came off!
In a change to the announced tag match, Jarek Nowak was dragged in to team with Aspen Faith. They faced Dickie Divers and Debbie Dahmer, who came out dressed just like Jack Morris….with beard. It was the Double D’s who claimed victory, their first win as a team in Disco.
The main show kicked off with the first of our tag team semi-finals – Kings of the North vs Fair City Saints. It would be the Kings who advanced, despite the best efforts of the underdogs, who impressed once more.
We were then treated to an almighty clash between Caleb Valhalla and the giant Will Kroos. This was a seriously impressive match up, that was until Griffin and Athena made their presence known. Will Kroos ultimately pickied up the win over the Viking who’d been struck in the back of the head with a mace!
Jack Morris made his final Disco appearance before setting off for Japan. He was interrupted by Deacon Matthews who challenged the Disco Derby winner to a match. After losing both of his shoes, Morris left the ring barefoot and was counted out. As Matthews celebrated his first win in Disco, Morris returned and attacked him. He eventually got his shoes back.
In the second tag team semi-final – fans were brought the heartbreaking news that Session Moth Martina hadn’t been cleared to compete, after suffering a shoulder injury. Instead, the ferocious Emersyn Jayne teamed up with Gene Munny to take on the She-Wolves. With Session Moth at ringside, it would be Emersyon Jayne who helped her team advance, pinning women’s champion Kasey!
We were then treated to the best in technical wrestling as Chris Ridgeway put his Wrestle Carnival Pure Championship on the line against Kick Ass Ian Skinner. This was an absolute clinic and a match of the year contender for sure! In the end, it was the experienced Ridgeway who just did enough to hold onto his championship.
Triple threat action next as Zach Dynamite, Griffin and Theo Doros collided. It wasn’t too long before a raging Caleb Valhalla stormed out to the ring while swinging a chain and chased off both Griffin and Athena. That left Dynamite and Doros to fight it out. It was the Superior Cypriot who had his hand raised in victory.
Our raffle was then interrupted by Joe Hendry’s new manager, Mr Manoval. He was joined by the Y Division champion and it was made clear to Disco owner Alan Smith, Joe would no longer deal directly with Discovery management. Mr Manoval was given news of who Joe would next face in Discovery, much to the displeasure of both men. We still await news of who this mystery challenger is!
And onto the main event, the final of the tag team tournament! The vastly experienced team of the Kings of the North taking on the newly acquainted Gene Munny and Emersyn Jayne. Despite their best efforts, and after a scary looking fall to the outside from Jayne, it was the experience of the Kings that helped them over the finish line to claim Discovery gold! Emersyn Jayne was checked over by paramedics and is thankfully ok!
But the day belonged to the Kings of the North – the first ever Discovery Wrestling tag team champions!
