BritWres Round Up Issue #2 By Dave Bodymore

Well here we are again! It’s the second in our weekly round ups of all the news and results for the last week in British Wrestling.

We start this week with Preston City Wrestling who made several announcements for Supershow 4 which will run over May 30th and 31st. They announced that Mad Man Manson will face Noam Dar and El Ligero will take on Low Ki on the Friday night. Then at the Saturday day time show Uhaa Nation will face Low Ki, Kris Travis will battle The Hurricane and Juventud Guerrera, Mad Man Manson, Danny Hope and Al Snow will face off in a 4 way match up. Their biggest announcement this week was the former WWE star and current TNA ‘investor’ MVP will be at the Supershow.

They also announced that Doug Williams will face Dave Mastiff at Make Or Break 2014 in Birmingham on May 10th and they will return to Sittingbourne on May 25th.

An injury to MK McKinnan forced a change of schedule for Southside at the beginning of this week. Pete Dunne has replaced him in next weekend’s Speed King tournament and he will be taking on Noam Dar in the first round. Southside’s week continued with announcements that Robbie X will be X-Pac’s tag team partner in their tag match with Project Ego at X Factor in Nottingham on May 11th and Hardcore Holly will be returning to Southside on October 25th, when Southside bring their 4th Anniversary show to Stevenage.

Kamikaze Pro return on April 27th with Sky’s the Limit where Ryan Smile will be defending his Kamikaze Pro title against ‘The Pride of Wales’ Eddie Dennis.

It’s been a quiet few months for the Attack Pro Wrestling crew, but on May 24th they will be back again with Press Start: Level 2. The first Press Start show, which is video game themed, was a YouTube sensation and gained the promotion mass recognition. They are taking video game suggestions, so if you have any that you think they could make work get to their Facebook or Twitter and suggest away!

Undoubtedly, this week Progress have been a focal point for most British Wrestling fans. Last Sunday they presented ENDVR:4 where Shen Woo beat Lucha Dave and Chuck Mambo beat Mark Hendry to advance into the Natural Progression Series. Steve Burden beat former tag partner The Warden and The Swords of Essex, with Joey Lakeside filling in for Paul Robinson, overcame the Bhangra Knights to secure their spot in the Number one contenders tag team match at Chapter 13. The Omega’s 5 minute open challenge was accepted by Tyson James, who lost in 2 minutes 45 seconds and the injured Ali Armstrong demanded the remaining time to try and even the score. Omega avoided Armstrong but then attacked him after the final bell. In the main event Eddie Dennis beat Josh Bodom and Pastor William Eavor in a triple threat match.

Monday saw Progress management make the big announcement that Prince Devitt’s debut at Chapter 13 will be against Zack Sabre Jr, who is flying in especially from Japan for the match. And then midweek they announced that Progress will be bringing wrestling to Sonisphere this year!

In the Main Event El Ligero became the first Tidal Wrestling champion, beating Marty Scurll in the process. Unfortunately Marty Scurll did suffer a dislocated shoulder during the match and we would like to wish Marty a speedy recovery.

BritWresRoundUp by Dave Bodymore

Welcome to the first of our weekly round ups of all the goings on in British wrestling. Each week we will bring you all the match news results and talking points from around the United Kingdom.

We start this week with Revolution Pro Wrestling, who have announced that they will have 6 man tag team action in Birmingham on May 10th as The Revolutionists(Marty Scurll, Sha Samuels & Terry Frazier) take on Team Defend(Mark Andrews, Eddie Dennis & Pete Dunne). Andrews has quite the score to settle with The Revolutionists and who better to back you up than your best friends and business partners, who will be debuting at this show. RevPro also announced that their High Stakes DVD is now shipping and you can purchase this from www.revolutionprowrestling.com.

Southside have been very busy, as always, this week. They have made several big announcements for their upcoming shows. April 26th will see them present their next 2 shows in Nottingham, as they run Risky Business in the afternoon and Speed King 2014 in the evening. This week they announced Project Ego and their manager Adam Curtis, who are on a mission to clense British Wrestling of imported talents, will be facing Petey Williams and Heavyweight champion Mark Haskins. Also announced was Noam Dar taking on Tyler Bate, Lana Austin and Joseph Conners versus Kay Lee Ray and El Ligero and Stixx will once again do battle with Zak Northern, who he faced on the last Nottingham show.

They have also announced that Juventud Guerrera will be in a triple threat match with Robbie X and El Ligero at Notorious in St Neots on June 1st, Bubblegum will face Stixx at Appetite for Destruction in Stoke on June 14th and Chavo Guerrero Jr will be at the 4th Anniversary show in Stevenage on October 25th. They will also be shortly releasing Raw Deal 3 on DVD.

This week has been a relatively quiet one for Preston City Wrestling by comparison to previous weeks. Unfortunately, they did have some slightly negative news as Jimmy Hart has let them down and will not be appearing at Springslam. Hart has not responded to any recent correspondance and is now being advertised for a convention in America around the same time as the PCW show. Whilst disappointing this is in no way PCW’s fault and you can be assured that they will still put on a top quality night of wrestling.

In far better news, they have announced that Rikishi will be at Springslam on April 25th. Chris Masters will be doing a signing of his new PCW Best of DVD at That’s Entertainment, Preston during the day on the 25th April. And Finally, Eros Comedy’s Chris Brooker will be hosting ‘Nevermind the Bushwhackers’ on the Friday night of the Supershow 4 weekend.

Kamikaze Pro made the announcement that Pete Dunne would be the head trainer of their new dojo, this week. The Dojo opens on the 22nd April and will cost trainees £5.00 per session.

The Scottish Wrestling Alliance had two new champions to celebrate this week with Joe Hendry becoming the Laird of the Ring champion and Joe Coffey winning the Zero1 Scottish Heavyweight Champion.

Yorkshire based Tidal Championship Wrestling have been making big waves, excuse the pun, and have excelled when you think they were a new promotion at the beginning of the year. They broke the news that Josh Bodom was unable to appear at Release the Kracken, which is today at the Cockpit in Leeds, but they have found a replacement for Bodom. Liam Lazarus will fill the void and face Dara Diablo.

Futureshock Wrestling announced two matches for May 19th’s Underground 4 this week. Ryan Hendricks and Don Meacho will face Si Valour and Sparx in a loser leaves tornado tag match and the first Futureshock’s got talent will feature The Models & Melanie Price vs The Blackpool Blonds & Justin Price.

Paul Robinson has spent several days in hospital this past week as he has been quite ill and we would like to wish Paul all the best in his recovery, this has meant that the scheduled Bhangra Knight’s vs Swords of Essex match has had to change. Will Ospreay was allowed to choose himself a new partner for the match and he has turned to the first graduate of the ProJo, Joey Lakeside. With Lakeside now in the tag match and Jack Jameson being injured working for DGUSA in New Orleans this past weekend, Pastor William Eavor will now face Eddie Dennis and Josh Bodom in a triple threat match.

The biggest announcement from Progress this week saw them announce that Prince Devitt will debut at Chapter 13 and his opponent will be announced this Monday at 19.30.

IPW:UK will be Live in Tonbridge on the 20th April and this week they announced that Will Ospreay will face Earl Jonathan Windsor, The London Riots & Darrell Allen will take on The Southern Alliance (RJ Singh, Stixx & JC Thunder) and in a re-match of huge proportions The Coffey Brothers will do battle with The Dangerous Bastards(Danny Garnell & Dave Mastiff).
