Paul plans wrestle night in memory of friend

A CHARITY wrestling show is taking place in memory of a Dumfries man who died of leukaemia.

Jamie Paterson was only 30 when he died last year, and schoolfriend Paul Geddes, promoter of Impulse Pro Wrestling, has planned a tribute event on March 4 at The Lochside Club.
Paul said: “Jamie and I go way back to our days at school together. He was a great friend to me, and his death last year was devastating.
“He came along to our shows and supported both me and the promotion, and I want to pay tribute to him.
“I thought the best way to do that would be to organise a free family-friendly wrestling show, with all money raised from raffles and collections going to Cancer Research UK.”
Soul Soup, a service offering counselling drop ins and activities to young people seeking help and support with their emotional wellbeing, are among those getting excited for the show, after Paul surprised staff and service users with tickets.
One wrestler on the card, ‘The Superstar’ Craig Stephens, recently featured on ITV’s Judge Rinder with Paul, in a dispute over money owed.
Judge Rinder ruled in favour of ‘The Superstar’, and Stephens spoke to the Dumfries Courier about his victory and the upcoming event.
He said: “I’m going to have a party during the show to celebrate my superstar celebrity status, and Judge Rinder seeing things my way.
“I’m following in the footsteps of my parents Z & Saffire who are massive celebrities having been on loads of shows like Britain’s Got Talent and Coach Trip.”
Meanwhile, a second show is taking place April 2 on Wrestlemania weekend, and anyone buying tickets for this show in advance will receive free meet and greet tickets for the free event on March 4.
