Issues, it's something I have thought about but to be honest want to try a few local events to see if I like it

The uk is a massive potential market I'm surprised one of the many cable channels here hasnt took a punt on a company. Graphics, editing etc can all be done now on a decent laptop

Thoughts?

Re: British Wrestling Thread

I think there has been a few channels that have tried it. I have certainly seen a few feds whilst flipping channels and came across random stations showing random wrestlers.

To be fair though mate, although a TV deal would be great and Challenge is helping make great strides in that direction, with Youtube and other websites now, the internet is mostly where it's accessible and will be seen the most. Wrestletalk was on Youtube before it was on Challenge, I believe.

There's definitely a market out there for it and perhaps would be worth a punt by one of the cable channels like Challenge to go for the local market, but the fact that WWE and TNA are so successful would mean, I think, that anything less than great numbers would be looked upon as a failure by people who don't understand.

The wrestling channel would be perfect for today.

To those who spoke about Dynamites meet + Greet...

Re: British Wrestling Thread

Anyone ever been to an ICW show in Glasgow? I was given a ticket for their March event, looked them up on youtube - crowd looks decent, some of the wrestling looked reasonable from a quick skip through one of the event uploads on their channel.

^ Haha, seriously stop. Your semantics is almost as bad as your grammar.

Kenny Omega! Take my money too! That means I will have seen Omega and Steen within a month of each other. I just wish it was at big events rather than these shows but I will take it!

Re: British Wrestling Thread

PCW Guild Wars
Akira Tozawa vs. El Ligero

Wow, great match. Such a nice venue for wrestling, that huge ass chandelier rocks. I wish CZW or BJW book a show here just because of the chandelier, lol. Anyway, this was awesome. Ligero is solid, he's got the crowd behind him, and that's more than enough for now. But that's why Tozawa is one of the best wrestlers in the world (duh!), and he rocked here. His charisma is off the charts. He does all those small, subtle stuff I appreciate. Very exciting finishing stretch, nice drama.
Rating: ****1/4


RPW Uprising: Night 2
Big Van Walter vs. El Generico

Good match, it was the least we can expect from these two, because it was only 10 min long. Simple power/speed storytelling. Walter is such a cool dude. I'm gonna miss Generico.

Where you at these events mates?

Still 11 tickets left for the Dynamite Kid night. Must say I'm amazed.

I was actually at my first show of theirs last Sunday, the Square Go, I was mainly going out of curiosity about wrestling in The Garage but.... I fucking enjoyed it immensely, they've got some great guys in there (Wolfgang is good in an Bam Bam Bigelow type way, Mikey Whiplash is astounding and they've got some great high flyers and the such), like there's none that I saw on Sunday that I'd call bad and the crowd were absolutely rabid.

Put it this way, I've bought my ticket for the March show already, absolutely gagging for it.
