WOS WRESTLING UK TOUR STARTS THIS FRIDAY!

The first ever WOS Wrestling UK tour gets under way this Friday and the cards have been released for the first two dates.

The stars of ITV wrestling will be kicking off their six-date nationwide journey this Friday night (January 18) at the O2 Guildhall in Southampton before moving on to the Newport Centre in Newport on Saturday (January 19).

The tour comes just months after the historic WOS Wrestling series of last summer which marked British wrestling’s return to ITV for the first time in 30 years.

The series ended with ‘Superhuman’ Justin Sysum capturing the WOS Championship from Rampage but can Sysum hang onto his belt on the UK tour?

Sysum and Rampage will be kept apart on the first date in Southampton this Friday where the champion will instead team with masked high-flyer Robbie X to take on the former WOS Tag Team Champions Alpha Bad – ‘Alpha Male’ Iestyn Rees and ‘Superbad’ Kip Sabian.

Rampage will also have his hands full as he tackles the talented international sensation ‘The Aerial Assassin’ Will Ospreay in singles action.

Meanwhile the WOS Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray – who survived the challenges of all-comers on the ITV series – will put her title on the line in a three-way battle against her rivals Viper and Bea Priestley.

And one half of the reigning WOS Tag Team Champions, the immensely popular Grado, will have to cope with the all-round ring skills of the conniving Martin Kirby.

Other matches announced for Southampton are:

‘East End Butcher’ Sha Samuels and CJ Banks vs ‘The Prestigious One’ Joe Hendry and BT Gunn

‘The Monster’ Crater vs Gabriel Kidd

The Newport show on Saturday night will see Justin Sysum and Rampage collide in a huge rematch with the WOS Championship on the line.

Former tag team partners turned bitter enemies ‘The Showstealer’ Nathan Cruz and Adam ‘Flex’ Maxted will also square off.

Other matches announced for the Newport show include:

Alpha Bad vs BT Gunn and Robbie X

CJ Banks vs ‘The Prestigious One’ Joe Hendry

‘The Aerial Assassin’ Will Ospreay vs Martin Kirby

Popular personality SoCal Val will also appear on all dates. The American star was part of the three-person commentary team – alongside WOS Executive Stu Bennett and Alex Shane – for the WOS TV series. But what will Val’s role entail on the WOS Wrestling UK tour?

Top UK sport Master of Ceremonies Phil Seymour will once again be presiding over the action as he did on the ITV series.

The WOS Wrestling UK tour will also visit the Victoria Hall in Stoke (Friday January 25), Blackpool Tower Ballroom (Saturday January 26), the Royal & Derngate Theatre in Northampton (Saturday February 2) and York Hall, Bethnal Green, London (Sunday February 3).

Klondyke Kate interview, Monday 21 November 2016

Far too many people far too easily bestow the title of legend on those they admire, not me, for me you have to earn it with blood, sweat and tears and I confidently say that Jayne Porter (aka Klondyke Kate) is a legend.

There was no path for her to follow in her career, no path for her to follow in her life, she did it her way, on her terms and I for one know the wrestling family is better for having her in it.

I was lucky enough for her to give me some of her time recently and to hear her story in her own words… Continue reading
