I just hadn't heard about this promotion until recently and it is near enough right on my doorstep. Had a look through the card and matches which looked really good so I bought tickets to the upcoming event.
Was just curious as to whether their previous shows have been good quality and if they are a promotion on the rise? I was reading that this show has been their fastest selling event ever. Thanks in advance.
I'm sure it will be a good night, looking forward to it!
Well, they've been about for 11 years but only put on a few shows a year as far as I am aware.
The last event was my first one I attended as it had Devitt (for the missus) and Grado (for the weans). Prior to that I'd only seen a few of their DVDs.
In my opinion - the DVDs are of mixed quality. Great matches, sound and lighting can be a bit off. I have their latest one (the show I was at with Devitt) on order so will review it on my site when it arrives.
The live show was amazing. They have a deep roster of the best of Scottish and British wrestling. Jack Jester, El Ligero (I marked the fuck out, that was an unannounced appearance and I'd been dying to see him live but he doesn't do ICW), Kid Fite, Marty Scurll (though he was injured), Bad Bones, James Scott, Grado, Liam Thomson, Kay Lee Ray, Carmel, it's all good.
Although some of their roster are ICW stalwarts, their personas at BCW are brilliant and perfectly fit the "family" atmosphere. I've been to a couple of "family" shows but BCW has been the best for my kids (ages 4 and 6). Still plenty there that me and the girlfriend enjoyed of course.
All in all, I'd recommend them, based off the one live event and couple of DVDs I've experienced. They aren't a new company, and aren't shy at bringing in outside talent (Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase guest booked a show) while showcasing the true best of British at the same time.
