Anyone here been to a 4FW show? They've got a couple shows lined up in Swindon which is pretty near me, show on 9th March has a main event of Fujita 'Jr' Hayato vs. Zack Sabre Jr which sounds pretty f'n epic. Ultimo Dragon appearing in a few months too. For £10 I'd probably go anyway, but wondered what the undercards are like.

"Brawls, beers and babes" was the tag line of the original over 18s UK promotion X-S:W back in 2005/6. Got coverage in NUTS magazine among other lads mags and BBC Radio Essex even tried to get it banned. Co-promoted the first Gorefest European death match tournament with Ian Rotten, Mickie Knuckles, Iceman, Zak Sabre Jr (yes THAT Zak was doing death matches) among others. Claudio Castagnoli, Pac, Jonny Storm, Jody Fleisch etc were all a part of the promotion/shows in non-death match matches too. Was some good and bad times.

Haven't been but I've seen a couple of shows and they were both really good. Hayato/Sabre is something to be turned away.

Well, HXC sounds like my cup of tea. We need more deathmatch and hardcore feds. I'm gonna watch the first show when it airs on DVD. Also, IPW likes hardcore too, you say?

I dont suppose anyone knows of promotions thay run shows in the Aldershot/Guildford/Camberley local area or nearabouts? I would love to get into UK wreslting and know the names. I've been to an ASW show but that's about it. Just seems to me that all the best feds are too North for me :-(

Also as I am an unemployed 19 year old, London is too far :-(

As others have said above, 4FW is your best bet. They run shows in Reading, Thatcham and their big ones are in Swindon. They have a working agreement with Michinoku Pro in Japan so you get to see a lot of different international talent on their shows.


I got it wrong the other day. The HXC debut show is on 7th April and called One Dark Night. Entry includes the afterparty plus the live screening of Wrestlemania 29.

Reviving this thread. Sad that it comes and goes. Those in the know about the UK scene, throw a few more posts in here lads, keep us updated.

I'm into the HXC show knowing it has the afterparty and WM29 screening. Seems like a fun night to be fair.

Just read about the Dynamite Kid show, (http://www.highspots.com/Tickets/dk-experience.html) tickets have been on sale for at least a month now and hasn't sold out yet. Only 90 seats available as well. It's in a month so I suppose it will sell out but I'm really surprised it hasn't sold. It's £75 a ticket with all sorts of expensive add-ons which makes sense why it's not sold hugely, but it's a once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet Dynamite Kid which I would have thought a lot of fans would have jumped at.

I decided not to go. I'm looking forward to the documentary though so will be buying it. I don't know why I decided not to go, £75 is nothing really and it's near to me but I just feel like I wouldn't enjoy it. I don't like the man, I respect him and think he is the greatest European wrestler of all-time, a man decades before his time and a true trendsetter but I just can't bring myself to want to meet him.

Is anybody going to it? I'll be happy if it sells out and everything goes well, and we see a few pictures on the site and facebook page of Billington smiling with fans. Looking forward to the doc, too. Who knows, if the doc is as good as I hope and it sells well, it might not be a once in a lifetime opportunity and it might put him in a better light to meet him.

Has anybody read this months FSM magazine? There's an article written by Billingtons ex-wife that's getting plaudits. Anybody read it? I would recommend everyone to read it but I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. Everything she said I felt like I already knew from the honesty of Dynamites book. She also referred to going to Liverpool to "Beatle street" and passed comment on the lack of care for Lennon on an anniversary of his death which I felt was out of place and incorrect.

Anybody read any UK mags like FSM?? What are your opinions on Power Slam in 2013? Know of any other UK wrestling mags to pick up, or newsletters or anything?

Any uk wrestling memories?

I have zero desire to meet Dynamite. By all accounts he's an extremely difficult & unlikeable man. Mind you, I'm sure he'll plaster on a smile for an extortionate £75 a pop. Worth noting that this event is on the same day as Dragon Gate in Castlefield, which I'm seriously considering going to.

I subscribe to Power Slam. I know a lot of people hate it due to perceived negativity, but I still find Fin Martin's critical style a breath of fresh air in a sea of sycophants. I'm a firm believer in all criticism being relative (ie you can't have ***** classics without DUDs to compare them to).

I went to PCW's More Bang For Your Buck last weekend. It was a decent show, with the Bucks wrestling twice (beating Project Lucha & putting over Fight Club), although we had to settle for babyface Bucks-lite rather than their PWG greatness. Dave Mastiff's impromptu win over Noam Dar was my match of the night. T-Bone's main event PCW title win over Kris Travis was billed as a bloody bullrope match, but it wound up being bloodless. It wasn't great live - the rope kept falling off both guys' wrists, they didn't do the traditional four-corners stip, there was a botchamania-bound homemade table disaster, and they spent way too much time in the crowd, severely restricting my view.

Really looking forward to PCW's Road To Glory double-header next weekend. Tournament bracket looks like this:

Super Crazy vs El Ligero
Bubblegum vs April Davids
Dave Mastiff vs Mad Man Manson
Paul London vs Joey Hayes
Noam Dar vs Andy Wild
Kris Travis vs CJ Banks
Dean Allmark vs Martin Kirby
Brian Kendrick vs Kid Fite

I'm guessing Travis will make the final - most likely vs Bubblegum (whose interference cost him the title) or Mastiff (who deserves a run with belt after 18 months worth of consistently strong performances).

They put the title back on T-Bone? Boooo. Feels like they're quickly becoming the UK NEW with all these nostalgia themed supershows.

SWE Speed King lineup looks bossy already. Sabre, Scurll, Allmark, Dar, Lethal, Del Sol & Ligero with I think another 5 left to be announced.

There's short-term mileage in heel T-Bone as champ with Bubblegum as his chavvy rentboy sidekick. I reckon Mastiff or Dar will get the next major run with the belt.

I'm less than stoked at the whole Goldust, Steiners, DiBiase, Dreamer, Lita direction, but if it keeps the promotion financially healthy, brings in new fans & pays for the likes of Steen & Gargano, then I'll live with it. To be fair, PCW has a decent track record thus far when it comes to using imports to draw AND put over the homegrown talent.
