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).

Doors open for WOS Wrestling UK tour events at 6.30pm and the action gets under way at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available for all events from www.gigsandtours.com .

Special Fan Interaction tickets are on sale. Fan Interaction ticket holders are entitled to early access to the venues from 5pm.

Main Event Wrestling – Planet of the Primate, Innisfree, Longbenton 27/01/17

MEW’s first show of 2017 is many things to many people. For many it will be their first wrestling show of the year, for some it will be the long awaited return of one of the Northeast wrestling scene’s biggest legends, Dave Carbon after more than 18 months in retirement. To Liam Slater it will be his first defense of his Northeast Championship. And for me it will be the end of approximately six months of organisation as the Calling Spots Championship Tournament comes to an end and the first ever Calling Spots champion is crowned. So without further ado here is our preview of the show. Continue reading

3CW Encore, 12th November

My transport options to the show were a 2 hour bus ride from Newcastle or Heworth, or a 1hr one from Sunderland (autocorrect tried to change Sunderland to both “underhand” and “syndrome” read into that what you will) plus a metro, or a train. I got the train, and it was crammed. Luckily I’ve been playing a fit the obnoxiously shaped blocks into the frame game on the old dog and bone recently, so the game of human Tetris to get the guard in and out of his cupboard at every stop on the way was a bit easier than normal.

LCW Elevation: Triumph 2 – 27th November, Brockington College, Leicester

FB_IMG_1479926745456

I don’t want to spoil the illusion but the wrestlers you see on TV weren’t just created that way, each and every one of them (even the crapper ones) have put years into honing their craft and becoming the star they are. Perhaps their character will change but the moves they have learned and the way they carry themselves will often remain the same. Continue reading
