Absolute Wrestling, Wrestlewatch – Linskill Centre – 21st August 2016

On Sunday 21 August at the Linskill Centre North Shields, like minded wrestling fans will be gathering in number for the next highly anticipated installment of Absolute wrestling. 

As an added treat for us, they are hosting international wrestling sensation Colt Cabana who is giving a Q&A session in the afternoon (check for ticket availability here).  Now I’ve not been treated to Colt in person yet so I am really excited to see how this will turn out, especially as it is to be hosted by the man, they myth, the legend that is Maffew of Botchamania.  
If I survive the afternoons no doubt shenanigans, doors open at 5pm for the rest of the crowd then we settle down to take in the evenings uncompromising action. 
‘Mr Massive’ Chuck Cyrus v Rampage Brown
Rampage Brown defeated Wolfgang in the previous round and Cyrus took out the up and comer Mihai to book his place in this round. 

Since Chuck has been on quite the winning streak beating RJM and Iain Robinson on the final night of the Absolute Fight:Club Tour and then getting a pinfall victory over Johnny Moss at the Championship Suspects. 

This is the first time these two have ever faced each other, Who will come out on top when one of the toughest men in all of wrestling collides with Mount Mass? 

Bubblegum v Colt Cabana 
Originally it was to be Bubblegum v Zack Gibson but then it was announced that Zack was unable to compete at Wrestlewatch, Bubblegum issued an open challenge. Bubblegum told the Wrestling world that he would take on anybody to prove that he has what it takes to win the Absolute Wrestling Championship Tournament. 

When Absolute debutant Colt Cabana heard of the open challenge he immediately asked to be the person that took on the rascal from Manchester and the match was signed and we cannot wait to see how this match will unfold but it will be an entertaining one. 

HT Drake v Joey Hayes 
There is another newcomer to the Absolute promotion in this match in the shape of Joey Hayes who will be taking on the enigmatic HT Drake.  Drake always leaves it all in the ring but as Hayes is the unknown quantity will he be able to overcome? Make sure you have your tickets so you can find out….. 
The New Nation V Liam Lazarus and a mystery partner 
All of these three men have put on engaging, hard hitting, spectacular matches in an Absolute ring in the past but mystery remains as to who Liam will bring along to help him overcome The New Nation. Jason Prime and Alexander Henry have been leaving a trail of battered and bruised bodies in their wake as they run roughshod over the UK tag scene, but I want to know if Liam and his partner can muster their technical ability to get the win. 
Nserko v Ashley Dunn V Martin Kirby 
Kudos to Absolute for again mixing in exciting new talent to their existing strong roster of stars with the addition of both Ashley Dunn and Nsereko to this match with the uber talented Martin Kirby.  This will be Ashley’s first appearance the North East of England so the young man from Milton Keynes will be looking to make an impression on the Absolute management in an attempt to become a regular. The second combatant that will be making his debut is the Ugandan Warrior Nsereko, standing at 6’1″ he will be bigger and stronger than the two men he is facing and will be looking to out power both to cement himself in Absolute Wrestling.  Both these upstarts will be looking to take down the stalwart superstar Martin Kirby who can turn his hand to any style and any opponent, I hope to see at least one Zoidberg elbow in this match. 
Little Miss Roxxy V Kat Von Kaige  
The last announced match to preview, but certainly not least, this match looks to be a cracker, after narrowly missing out on a win against Toni Storm, fan favorite Little Miss Roxxy will be back for Wrestlewatch to try and make amends when she faces Kat Von Kaige. A graduate of the Dragon Pro Training School in South Wales Kat Von Kaige is a hard hitting no nonsense wrestler whom is sure to give Miss Roxxy another great contest. 

Having been lucky enough to see all of the Absolute shows this far, I for one cannot wait to take in the action on Sunday as so far each show Absolute show has gotten bigger, better and showed off excellent presentation created by brilliantly talented people. Calling Spots will also be there selling our awesome products and we hope to see you there.
