Wrestler Flyin' Ryan Griffin in action

International sensation Candice LeRae and British wrestling ambassador Doug Williams will be among those whipping fans into a frenzy and will be joined by regulars Joe Coffey, Viper and Lewis Girvan as well as new face to the Discovery fold, Flyin’ Ryan Griffin, LJT and Euan G Mackie.

Two of Edinburgh’s top grapplers will also be in the action with ‘Local Hero’ Joe Hendry set to go one on one with the ‘One True Alpha’, Dave Conrad.

And it’s all in a great cause. Discovery is teaming up with Cash for Kids in a bid to raise thousands for disadvantaged youngsters throughout Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife with profits from ticket sales going directly to the charity.

Founder and co-owner of Discovery Wrestling Alan Smith says it’s a cause they’re keen to support:

“I have known for a long time now about the great work Cash for Kids does in the area and we wanted to do something to help.

“We always get great crowds in Edinburgh and knew this would be a cause our fans would want to support.

“The initial response has been overwhelming and we are already at the point of raising hundreds for Cash for Kids so we are hoping over the next few weeks that the total will be into the thousands.”

Discovery Wrestling has also launched a ticket donation scheme to help some of the most disadvantaged children enjoy a day out at the wrestling.
