British wrestler Martin Kirby has come out of retirement, making a surprise appearance at Scottish promotion Insane Championship Wrestling’s television taping last night in a losing effort against Daz Black.

Kirby, 39, announced his retirement last March. He is best known for his work across the British independent wrestling scene, but namely WhatCulture Professional Wrestling (which later rebranded as Defiant Wrestling).

In August 2019, Kirby debuted in Japanese promotion Dragon Gate. He regularly competed in the company until last March, teaming with Gamma, Masaaki Mochizuki and Ryo Saito in defeat against Dragon Dia, Jason Lee, Mondai Ryu and Oji Shiiba in what would have been his last match.

British promotion NORTH Wrestling has announced Kirby will compete against Chris Ridgeway, Robbie X and Will Kroos in a four-way match to determine the next challenger for the NORTH Wrestling Championship at its Keep Your Distance show on Saturday, October 23 at the Anarchy Brew Co in Newcastle.

At the same show, Rory Coyle will attempt his first defense of the title against Cara Noir (international fans will also know Noir from his work in England’s PROGRESS Wrestling and German promotion Westside Xtreme Wrestling on Peacock and the WWE Network). Tickets for the show are available here. All allocated seating has sold out but standing tickets remain available for under £20.
