World champion sets sights on Lincoln wrestling tournament

This story is over

A world champion is set to wrestle in Lincoln next month.

Nick Magnus Aldis will compete at Fight Factory Wrestling’s event, Origins, in January.

Aldis is currently the Global Force Wrestling champion, a promotion in the USA which was created by former WWE and TNA wrestler Jeff Jarrett.

He has also competed for companies across the world, holding titles in Japan, India and the United States, where he is a former TNA World Heavyweight champion.

Aldis also has victories over top competitors such as WWE champion AJ Styles and wrestling legends Sting and Kurt Angle.

Head coach, owner and Fight Factory Wrestling Heavyweight champion Hayden Loeve said: “Fight Factory Wrestling is going from strength to strength, 2017 is set to be our busiest year to date.

“It was by pure chance that this event is taking place. A last minute cancellation at the Engine Shed and Aldis being in the country on the right weekend meant that we could go ahead,” he said.

Origins takes place on January 29 at the Engine Shed and doors open at 7:30pm.
