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?

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...

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.

what are the biggest money making feds in britain right now?

ASW PBW LDN(at least the last time i checked) and who else?

I honestly love it when somebody tries to sound smart by using big words that have no context within with what they're saying. Genuinely laughed out loud! !
maybe you should get a dictionary and or thesaurus just to be sure mate, there's nothing wrong with sophistication

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

OMG. Not only do the 4FW 8th/9th March cards have Fujita Jr Hayato...KENNY OMEGA has just been announced.

Take my money, already!
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!

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. (Y)

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.

Went to my first ICW show in April last year and i have not missed a show since!

The crowd is always great and the roster is packed with talent. Already have my ticket for Tramspotting in a few weeks which will interesting as it is ICW's first full show outside of Glasgow.

I went to PCW's Road to Glory tournament Night 1 last night. It was a very solid, fun show, albeit with some questionable booking:

Martin Kirby pinned Dean Allmark in a really crisp & exciting opener.

Bubblegum beat April Davids after T-Bone interfered. Loads of heat for Bubbs & Bone's antics.

CJ Banks beat Kris Travis via count out. The finish was a mess - Bubblegum & T-Bone jumped Trav in full view of the ref. So the champ screwed the former holder by getting him eliminated from the title shot tournament.... but then T-Bone announced he would defend the belt against Travis on Night 2.

Brian Kendrick beat Kid Fight in a good match.

Joey Hayes defeated Paul London in another decent bout. London's ring entrance had to be the longest in wrestling history - he did several laps of the club, performing a building-wide meet & greet. London wound up with a nasty cut above his eye. The result was no surprise, as London is working in Kent tonight.

Noam Dar made Andy Wild tap out. This was dull in places, but ended strong. Dar has embraced his increasing popularity & given up trying to play heel. Afterwards, Dar's quarter final opponent, CJ Banks attacked him, leaving Noam wide open for the one & only Dave Rayne to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase & win the PCW Cruiserweight title. Rayne is officially the most over man in PCW - the pop for his win was huge.

Carmel Jacobs beat Kay Lee Ray. These two could be seen practising their match on the tv screens while folks were queuing up. Kay Lee Ray wrestles with reckless abandon & pulled off a bunch of risky looking spots before injuring her ankle right before the finish.

Dave Mastiff & Mad Man Manson went to a no-contest after both men attacked the ref in very funny comedy match.

Super Crazy pinned El Ligero in an excellent main event. Crazy is a ring general with a superb sense of pacing & timing, and amazing agility for a man his size & age.

Quarter final brackets for Night 2

Super Crazy vs Bubblegum
Joey Hayes receives a bye
Noam Dar vs CJ Banks
Brian Kendrick vs Martin Kirby

Cheers for that mate. I've just found house of pain wrestling do shows in notts.

Has anyone heard of this outfit or been to see a show?
House of Pain is run by Stixx aka "The Heavyweight House of Pain." He's a very good wrestler, probably one of the best in the UK because he can do everything.

They have their own training school the House of Pain Academy where Stixx is the head trainer. They train up their wrestlers and if they're good enough, they can go on their shows with some of the more experienced wrestlers. So you get good solid, local wrestling at low prices.

IPW:UK Revolution 2012
IPW:UK British Cruiserweight Championship Tournament - Finals: Marty Scurll vs. Sami Callihan

What a terrific match. Seriously, this shit rocked. Both guys were incredible, Sami being his usual aggressive self, and Marty playing a great underdog. So many subtle things happened here, especially with Sami on offense. Marty sold his leg very well, but not just that - the overall tone of selling was excellent, from both. Fantastic match, Marty could have awesome matches in TNA.
