John Lowing (born 20 September 1955) is a retired British professional wrestler best known under the ring name Johnny Kidd. Kidd was best known for his work during what was known as the Golden Era of British Wrestling.

Professional wrestling career

Kidd made his professional wrestling debut in a singles match against Tony Scarlo at the Salisbury City Hall in Salisbury, Wiltshire after being trained by the Ampthill Amateur Wrestling Club.[citation needed]

Kidd found his most success during the Golden Era of British Wrestling when the television show World of Sport was launched featuring wrestling in the mid-1960s.[citation needed]

A practitioner of the British style of wrestling, Kidd found little success in the more modern form of wrestling. However, Kidd would find sanctuary in old-school promotions like Revolution British Wrestling, and Premier Promotions where he won various titles. Kidd still continues to compete in wrestling to this day, wrestling for various promotions around the UK, mostly LDN Wrestling, where has competed on all 4 Legends Showdown events.[citation needed]

Outside of wrestling Kidd is a technical advisor for Vauxhall Motors.In October 2009 Kidd lost to Matt Jarrett at GL1 Gloucester Leisure Centre.[citation needed]

On 28 February 2010, Kidd competed in a special attraction match against Joel Redman in Tiverton, Devon for the Devon Wrestling Association, which he lost after being attacked with a steel chair.

On 30 July 2011, Kidd made his debut for American promotion Chikara, defeating compatriot Johnny Saint in a match contested under World of Sport rules.[1] The following day Saint, teaming with Mike Quackenbush, pinned Kidd, teaming with Colt Cabana, in a tag team match.[1]

Kidd made another appearance for the Devon Wrestling Association in February 2012, competing in a mountevans rules match against DWA Trophy holder Nick Riley for the Trophy itself, in which he was unsuccessful.[citation needed]

In 2015, Kidd announced his retirement would be held in Chikara in May 2016. On 11 November 2015, Kidd wrestled Japanese wrestler Ultimo Dragon, for Pro Wrestling Pride at PWP Heroes & Legends 2, in a losing encounter, but would return to the company in 2016, wrestling three matches, and winning the PWP Catch Division Championship from Scotty Essex. He would lose the rematch in Teignmouth, Devon in a Mountevens match. [2]

On 28 May 2016, Kidd faced Mike Quackenbush at a Chikara event in Manchester in his retirement match,[3] which ended in a draw after eight rounds.[4] Kidd came out of retirement for a Chikara event in Wolverhampton on 2 September 2017, losing to Quackenbush in a British Rules match. [5]
