Re: British Wrestling Thread



Sha Samuels has suprised me how able to be a heel champion he is despite his stigma of a tag team midcarder

Re: British Wrestling Thread

I've always wanted to get into British wrestling, but never had the chance. I'm going to try harder in 2013 though, probably start with that PCW show. I live in Liverpool so Preston isn't really that hard to get to, or back from. A friend of mine told me that the Steiners were booked for shows in Summer 2013, Golddust too. Just this minute I've got a FB notification that they have added Bobby Lashley.

Same friend recommended a few other companies, @Grandpro and @infinite_promo on twitter. He's well up on the scene and I'm made up to know him to recommend for me!

Infinite Pro had a show literally 10 minutes from me last week which I stupidly forgot about. Going to try make their shows too as they're so close.

An old friend of mine goes out with a wrestler on the British Scene too, doing quite well. She is a lovely girl and was always a big wrestling fan. Her boyfriend is Zack Diamond and from what I've read, seems to be doing well.

I struggle to go to these events though as I don't really know many people who want to go. The lad who recommends me I haven't seen since we were kids and speak on fb/twitter, my mates who like wrestling wont go. I'm thinking of dragging my Missus along as she would go, too, but wouldn't enjoy it haha.

Anyone in Liverpool looking for a mate?

Re: British Wrestling Thread

Oh my goodness, that's HUGE! Might think about going to that. Issues, just go to shows on your own, like I do. No, i'm not Marc. Took a poster home as a souvenir from the show the other night, put it up in my bedroom, saw it in a bus shelter.

Because of the low crowd noise and the intimacy of the venue, one could hear spots being called at points, including "619" when one of them was in a headlock, then 20 seconds later, low and behold, he does a 619. One of the wrestlers said to himself "I could be at home watching X Factor", lol.
Yeah, I've been to a show like that. They had "619 Mysterio Jr" wrestling on the show. Me and my housemate sat in the 3rd row, laughing our arses off.

I've seen this, they added me on facebook. It looks quality and I think it's a fair price but I just can't justify 75 for something like this to be honest, so most likely wont be going.

Being shown by projector though, that's interesting. They should have put the word out that they wanted a cinema to show it for a weekend. Have the Saturday as all of this, and have two showings on the Sunday, I would think they would clean up and people would come from all over Britain. I'm sure a cinema in the North West would have taken him up on it. Just local to me there is a Cinema called Fact that always do spots like this.

I run a lot of networking events including at The Hilton in Liverpool, so I know how it's going to be setup. A part of me wishes it was in a real cinema, and that's the only part that is stopping me from getting the tickets this weekend.

It will be interesting to see how this one plays out, I have the feeling that it's either going to be a total 100% success or a massive failure. Still umming and ahhing about whether to get myself a ticket or not.

Also, I noticed earlier that Akira Tozawa has cancelled on PCW :/ That's such a shame, I was really looking forward to seeing him. They've got Super Crazy in to replace him but can't help but that doesn't fill me with hope. Sure, he's a talent but every time I've seen him in the last few years, he's seemed to phone it in and look blown-up throughout the match :/ Think I'll still go though!

Re: British Wrestling Thread

anyone remember the UK supershow craze from late 2004 to 2006?

from British Uprising 3 to International Showdown to 1 Up Games' 1 Pro Wrestling to the FWA Academy holding more than one supershow a year to Universal Uproar
