  1. Best things to watch on the network?

    There is a special on Bruno Sammartino coming to the network this week, should be in the originals section at some point. A new series called Marquee Matches also starts this week
  2. ITV World of Sport: Tapings postponed until July?

    People try to catch a live stream online rather than pay for ITV Box Office for legit sports, never mind wrestling that will probably be tucked away on ITV4. How long do you think some exec at ITV is going to allow to “build up the scene”. If it isn’t making money from the off, it’ll be binned off after one series, or even part way through if the viewing figures are really bad. That’s not to say that I want it to fail, I honestly don’t, but as others have mentioned already, the concept of “get British wrestling back on the telly” is completely different to what it was 10 or so years ago when the FWA was the big thing in britwres. Progress and ICW are probably the two biggest names in UK Wrestling, and both have built themselves up over time and without TV. Progress are running Wembley Arena in under 6 months time, but they’re not setting up to fill the place from the off, they’re selling tickets and then setting up accordingly so that they don’t put on a show that looks like the crowd has come in Empty Seat Fancy Dress. If the recent dibacle of 5* Wrestling has taught anybody anything is that sticking British wrestling back on the telly, even if it is on a tinpot channel like FreeSports, is that wrestling is still very much a niche venture. Progress and ICW learned to crawl before they learned to walk, and is the reason why they have a loyal/dedicated fanbase who have been with them as they have grown and also why both promotions have good working relationships with WWE. The folks at ITV don’t care about stuff like “building the scene”. They’ve got space to fill, and they need 45 minutes worth of content that they can wedge 15 minutes of adverts around. If/When wrestling doesn’t work, they’ll try something else or just stick on You’ve Been Framed, which costs next to nothing to produce.
  3. The Random/Weird/Quirky Photo Thread

    So Kevin Sullivan, whose 68 years old, had a match with Sami Calihan last night. Sullivan is tough as old boots, but for fucks sake lads
  4. The Metal/Punk/Rock Thread

    Blaze Bayley is on today’s episode of Talk Is Jericho. I’m expecting it to be a very Iron Maiden-heavy interview, but hopefully he does touch upon his solo work too. I’m been a massive fan of Blaze for years and always felt he got a rough deal with that period in Iron Maiden’s history from fans. His first two solo albums (‘SiliconMessiah’ and ‘Tenth Dimension’) are fantastic pieces of work
  5. Wrestling Pod Casts / Radio Interviews

    I had to put a towel over Conrad’s half of the screen, I can just about cope listening to him, but I can’t be doing with looking at him too. The use of archive footage made it like one of those Legends of Wrestling Roundtables that Mean Gene used to present
  6. The Metal/Punk/Rock Thread

    Pallbearer have announced some dates for July: July 16th: London - Islington Assembly Hall July 17th: Glasgow- Stereo July 18th: Leeds - Brudenell Social Club July 19th: Bristol- Fleece they then head out around mainland Europe before heading beck to play Bloodstock on August 12th
  7. Minor news items that don't deserve a thread

    The thing that I don’t get with it, and I’m not clued up on as to whether she has a case or not so I’m not going to go there, but she said she’s been tattooing Orton since 2003. Why has she now, 15 years later, decided to pursue this. If you’ve known someone that long and who he is, what does for a living and how his likeness is used, this can’t be some sort of new revelation to her. Or is it a case that something like this takes a long time to get to the courts and she’s actually been working on this for a while
  8. RIP Bruno Sammartino

    I know there’s a collection on the network, but could this open the door for a career retrospective DVD set?
  9. RIP Bruno Sammartino

    Dave did send out a tribute (something along the lines of people meeting heroes & not being disappointed) prior to the one posted here, but it doesn’t excuse the second one. oh, and he’s still going apparently-
  10. Podcast Recommendations

    Figured this was worth bumping because, Brian Blessed is on the latest Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theatre Podcast - https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/richard-herrings-leicester-square-theatre-podcast/id520831548?mt=2&i=1000409131635
  11. Best things to watch on the network?

    Was just coming to post this myself. It’s only showing up on my console though, iPhone app doesn’t show it.
  12. Smackdown Discussion Thread

    Spoiler for tonight’s Shakeup, and probable TV feud going forward
  13. Wrestling Pod Casts / Radio Interviews

    For anybody that’s interested, Something Else To Wrestle with Bruce Prichard starts on WWE Network on Wednesday British Strong Style are on today’s Talk Is Jericho
  14. UKFF Questions Thread V2

    Nothing that couldn’t be moved. They used to have Smackdown pre-show but stopped doing that about 18 months ago so that slot is just filled with whatever now (tomorrow is Ride Along and Table for 3)
