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!!!

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.

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 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.

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

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?

Sorry to double post but didn't want people missing this by not reading my previous boring post;

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.

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.

£75?! :no::no::no:
Well, £75 is expensive but it's Dynamite Kid. I would say this is one of wrestling's true "One of a kind" experience. Meeting him, getting a picture and an autograph, and watching the documentary in his and the film-makers presence I would expect, that's pretty nifty.

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!

Progress Wrestling shits on every other UK promotion from a great height
it still doesn't change the fact that All Star Promotions is the only sure thing money making machine in the uk not owned by Vince or tna
