A professional wrestler who is hosting a night of ‘Battle of Britain’ wrestling action in Clydebank this weekend insists those in attendance can expect a night ‘never been seen before.’

Kris Laurie - who himself wrestlers under the name Logan Smith – is working with promotion company Premier British Wrestling (PBW) to put on a Scotland vs England event at Clydebank Sports Hub on Friday, February 24.

According to Kris, it is the first time such a show has been performed anywhere. 

The wrestler told the Post he has brought the entertainment sport back to the town because Bankies are amongst the most passionate crowds he has competed for.

He said: “We used to run the shows a few years ago at the Holy Redeemer Primary school. They stopped but the crowds used to love it, we had a full hall.

“I used to get such good feedback on those shows and as far as I’m aware there hasn’t been this type of event in Clydebank since before Covid.

“So, it was just a way to bring it back and branch it out to places where it’s not really happening anymore.”

The night is a joint venture between PBW and Top Rope Wrestling Academy, an England-based company that will be bringing its best wrestlers to the town to fight it out for national bragging rights.

Kris, who has been a professional wrestler for over eight years, revealed it will be a unique night of fun.

“As far as I am aware it’s not been done before in a wrestling sense,” he added.

“It’s been done in other places, but these two companies professionally have never done a crossover.

“It’s very rare that you see two companies working together to produce something.

“It’s definitely something different”.

On the night, there will also be two home fighters competing, Aaron Echo and Angel Hayze.

The latter told the Post she is looking forward to representing the place where she grew up.

She said: “I always look forward to shows in Clydebank because it’s my hometown.

“My parents have always been my biggest supporters but can’t always get to shows so it’s great when they can get along to a show when it’s so local. 

“Other than that I really enjoy local shows because I think wrestling events are great for any community.

"It’s a fun night out for the full family to go to together for some great entertainment. 

“I’m sure this won’t be the last time wrestling comes to Clydebank.”

Kriss added: “Overall, it’s family entertainment. It’ll be very much like panto.

“There is so much interaction, from the wrestlers with the fans.”

Limited tickets are still available here.
