British Wrestling Thread
 
It's about time we had one on here. A place where we can discuss all things British wrestling, the shows, the companies, the workers, etc.

I'll kick us off, just got back from Preston City Wrestling's Festive Fury and was expecting an average show and have to say it was fantastic. It really delivered (even though there were last minute cancellations.)

So, I was wondering was anybody else at this show? Seen the company before or just thoughts on people's favourite British promotions and any recommendations for the future?

I was at this show too! Just got in. Awesome night, I've been to a few PCW events and they never disappoint.

Noam Dar is scarily good, especially that he's only 19 years old.

Yeah, PCW have put some excellent shows on this year, but tonight was their best so far & I wasn't expecting anything special either. All credit to Morrison & Masters for earning their paycheques when they could've easily phoned it in, and hats off to Travis & Dar for rising to the occasion & then some.

Can't wait til next month - Dar vs. Rayne, Travis vs. T-Bone Bullrope(!), and Project Lucha vs. Young Bucks!!!

Bah. I really wish I'd been able to get to this show, i'll have to pick up the DVD or something if it was really good. Need to badger some of my friends to come along too.

I used to promote shows in Hull a few years ago and wrestled up until last year, packed that in to focus on uni and realised I'd never make it anywhere. I still help out with NGW (New Generation Wrestling) in Hull, easily one of the best promotions in the UK, I recommend you take a look at their website www.ngwuk.com and get yourself to one of their shows. They regularly have/had talents like Nathan Cruz, PAC, Noam Dar and El Ligero.

PCW are brilliant, always bringing in the best imports as well as the best the UK has to offer.

You should say hello next time you're at an event of there's, I'm gunna try to get to all their show's from now on. Seeing as they only do 1 show per month, it should be manageable.

Dar is fantastic for such a young age. I've been hearing about him for a while too, so I fully expect him to make it to the main stage of WWE/TNA one day, failing that he's got to end up in ROH/Japan.

Man, I'm practically new to the British scene again. I kept up with it a little bit back when 1PW were around but now it's like starting from scratch. Give me a shout if you spot me at the next one, I'm hoping to get a few of my mates along to it.

I thought the main event was fantastic, great pop for the final outcome of the show and Dave Rayne's overness really gave the show an added dimension when they put him out there.

Hull's a bit far afield for me but if I hear about a big show of their's, I may make the effort to get down there :)

Just saw this match last night and was wondering where to put this, thanks for the thread:

Noam Dar vs Zack Sabre Jr. (PWE 21/10/11)- *** 3/4 (Company is in Scotland I think, but the two wrestlers are British. Match is very close to 4 stars but just doesn't quite make it. Still an awesome match.)

Went to UWE Megaslam wrestling at the Wednesday grounds in Hillsborough the other night, only about 40 people there. The best thing about the show was "Mr Sexy" Mick Romeo.

Fav British promotion? Futureshock wrestling, probably. I go every month.

I've heard good things about Futureshock, I may have to start venturing out to see them. Especially if they do shows in Manchester.

They do shows in Stockport, they're a good promotion.

On the show I went to on Sat in Shef, there was also a wrestler called "Sin Cara UK", heheheh...complete with Sin Care mask and blue tights/boots, of course. 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.
