Now that he is back, there is no getting rid of him.

His first match back will be at the Banana Bender Pub on Saturday, May 4, where he will fight Bones for the UPW Featherweight Champion belt.

Jack Tucker (real name Kyle Bullard) said he is excited to burst back onto the scene, to show everyone what he’s capable of.

“I’ve been waiting for the right time to make my return, which I think is now and I’m grateful to have been welcomed back with open arms to United Pro Wrestling,” Kyle said.

“When you’re in front of a crowd you almost feel larger than life. It’s a feeling unlike anything else and the atmosphere is amazing.

“I’m excited to get back in the ring again, my first match and reintroduce myself to the fans.”

Kyle has big plans for his official return and stressed he was always coming back to pro wrestling.

“It honestly was a case of life and commitments that ultimately led me to having to step away,” he said.

“I knew it was never going to be a case of if I return, but when I do.

“My goal is to get my name back out there to the fans and wrestling community and make the climb back to the top of UPW which means winning back the United Pro Wrestling Championship.”

The 24-year-old said he was pumped for his return to the ring.

“I’ve been back in training full-time for a month now and feeling better than ever,” he said.

“There has been a lot of cardio, conditioning and familiarising myself with the ring again.

“It was mostly positive other than a bit of ring rust which was expected.”

Kyle debuted for UPW when he was 19 years old. He held the UPW Tag Team Champion belt with Malibu from August 2019 to October 2019, and the UPW Champion belt from November 2020 to March 2021.

However, his love for the sport first started way back when he was a kid.

“I first saw wrestling on TV when I was 6 years old and fell in love with it, I’ve been a huge fan ever since,” he said.

“Mum has photos of me growing up dressed up like a pro wrestler, I had always wanted to get into the sport.

“I looked up to pro wrestlers Shawn Michaels and Kurt Angle growing up, but there were so many pro wrestlers I loved.”
