  1. UKFF Questions Thread V2

    There was a "New York Nasty Boy" who worked for All-Star around that time period. It wasn't Brian Knobbs (I think it might have been Julio Torres, if my memory serves me right).
  2. I saw this bloke hanging around the last FutureShock Wrestling show in Manchester a couple of weeks ago. He was sat with Marty Jones, who I believe has been training him. He's actually wrestling on the next TIDAL Wrestling show in Leeds next month that I'm off to, so should be able to get more of a read on him then. EDIT: Just seen he's on the next 3CW show in Northallerton that I might be at in a couple of weeks too, so he's getting out on shows.
  3. TN-EH? Discussion Thread.

    It was evident that there were problems in the match, which clearly had some communications issues and completely broke down at some points. Sexy Star has had issues wiht the rest of the locker room for some time, reportedly. The other 2 women in it (Lady Shanni and Ayako Hamada) seemed to just walk out before the finish. So, it was possibly frustration/anger on Star's part with what she did to Rosemary. Still, no excuse...
  4. Grand Pro Wrestling Thread

    GPW normally start their own UKFF threads for upcoming shows, but their next offering, ‘Back To School 2015’, comes this Friday and we have nothing on here yet. So, over to me, I guess (and I suppose this could become our ‘regular’ GPW discussion thread if they don’t come back on here themselves)... Bubblegum & Ste ‘Bin’ Mann & Jett Fashion vs. T-Bone & Ricky J McKenzie & Craig Kollins North West Rookie League Finals The Circus (Noah & Nicolas Cartier w/Melanie Price) vs. Dylan Roberts & Danxig Rio vs. Tabu Joey Hayes vs. Soner Durson El Ligero vs. Nick Maguire Chris Ridgeway vs. Martin Kirby 3-Way Match: Alex Jones-Casey vs. Matthew Brooks vs. Jumpin’ Jimmy Jackson
  5. Me again, setting up another new dedicated thread I think we could do with, this time for one of the north-west’s leading and longest-running promotions. They used to post their own threads for advertising/discussing each individual event on here, but since they stopped doing that a few years ago we haven’t really had anywhere to discuss their shows. A bit of background. FutureShock started in 2004 as an outlet for the trainees of their Manchester wrestling school to appear on shows. At that time they were closely aligned to Alex Shane and the FWA (to the point the gym was actually christened ‘FWA Manchester’ for a while), and those early shows would typically feature Alex and a handful of established FWA stars mixed in with all the new guys. Of course, as intended, it was the home-grown FutureShock guys that eventually became the stars in their own right, with the promotion’s strength being in its clear-cut good-guy/bad-guy divide and the wonderfully colourful, over-the-top cartoon characters that fell either side of that distinction. Heroic favourites like Retro Pop (Dave Rayne, Chris Egan & Sam Bailey), Simon Valour, ‘Housewive’s Favourite’ Damon Leigh, ‘Mr. Metros**ual’ Matt Taylor, 100% Proof (Jimmy O’Shea & Twissie Romanov), ‘Man of the Match’ Raynaldo, the Sisters of Virtue (later known as the Blossom Twins), Declan O’Connor, Jamal Lewis, Jermaine Eventer and the Gambian Invader would do battle with the nefarious Dom Travis, Domino’s Death Squad (Jack Domino, Jack ‘Toxic’ Gallagher & Cyanide), ‘Man of Steel’ Clinton ‘Real Deal’ Steel, ‘Cobra’ Carl Richards, the never-aging ’15 Year Old Powerhouse’ Jamie Flynt, G-Man, Joey Hayes, Ben Rage and the evil masked accountant William Lovejoy McBarnaby IV. The regular schedule in their comparatively luxurious home of the Stockport Masonic Guildhall increased to every couple of months, with occasional other events in places like Irlam, Macclesfield and Swinton. The shows were tremendous fun, struck a chord with what I look for in pro wrestling and quickly became a firm favourite with me. Booking was simple but incredibly logical, with tremendous feuds like Valour vs. Domino, Rayne vs. Egan and Travis vs. Bailey building, peaking and rewarding to perfection. Starting from their second-ever show, I attended almost all of their events from 2004 to 2009, by which time the ever-imposing ‘real-life’ restricted my ability to get over to FutureShock as often, and sadly once I fell out of the loop it became all-too-easy to let the promotion pass me by over the following few years. It wasn’t until 2013 that I started making the effort to come back again as and when I could to a promotion that deserved more of my attention. At first glance, the FutureShock of recent years is a million miles from that which I left in 2009. Where once the entranceway consisted of a cheap bed sheet crudely pinned over a door and they’d get around 50 punters in, there are now big entrance rigs, video screens and capacity-busting attendances. As well as the continuing regular Stockport Guildhall cards, they added a series of shows in Prestwich (north Manchester) from 2013. These ‘Underground’ shows were initially conceived as additional, supporting ‘house show’ events, that would feature the usual wrestlers of FutureShock but not necessarily the main angles, turns, title switches or storyline that would you get in Stockport. However, given that the Longfield Suite is a tremendous venue with bigger capacity, perfect set-up and ease of access (just inside the M60 and on the Bury Metrolink line), it wasn’t long before the Prestwich shows were routinely outdrawing the Stockport cards (now habitually doing advance sell-outs of around 500) and it made sense for it to start hosting the organisation’s ‘big’ events. The traditional Stockport Guildhall events (‘Uproar’) continue to be the meat-and-bones of the promotion in terms of storyline development, but the key matches at the culmination of feuds or programmes will now typically occur in Prestwich. They have also fairly recently added a regular schedule of events in Warrington (‘Slam’), which do fit that ‘house show’ bill. In addition to this, after previously making their content available digitally through the BWC/WrestleTalk website on a PPV basis, FutureShock are following the example of ICW and PROGRESS with the imminent launch of their own Vimeo-powered subscription-based on-demand service. With them running so many more shows now than at any time in their history (21 events in 2015), there will be no shortage of constant new content. While everything about the promotion has been upgraded, expanded and polished, I’m so please that at the core of the shows are the same principles that made the promotion so attractive in the early days. They are still bringing up and showcasing new talent from their school at the same time as having the established stars on top. They are still building patiently and logically to important matches and events in a logical way. And best of all, they still have the wide range of super-colourful characters up-and-down the cards that make it so much fun. FutureShock as a whole is a very rewarding and impressive product, and the only real reason I don’t attend more of their shows is because, well, you sadly can’t go to everything... ******************************** Anyway, the timing of starting this thread was really to coincide with one of their biggest ever shows. Tomorrow night in the Longfield Suite in Prestwich is ‘Underground #12’, which also simultaneously serves as both FutureShock’s ‘11th Anniversary Show’ and their ‘100th Show’. I’ll be there, and it’s quite the line-up: FutureShock Title vs. Career: ’The Man For All Seasons’ Xander Cooper © vs. Dave Rayne What a match. Everything on the line. Cooper is FutureShock’s lead villain and head of the evil ‘Uprising’ gang. He’s been Champion a full year now, having opportunistically used his FutureShock Trophy guaranteed title-shot to win the belt from Jack Gallagher just minutes after he had won it at last year’s Tenth Anniversary Show. Dave Rayne has been Champion before a few years back, when he himself was cast as the lead villain, but is now absolutely the people’s choice. He has undoubtedly been MR. FUTURESHOCK since Day One, but now if he wants to reward everyone’s faith in him and become champion again he’s going to have to put his FutureShock career on the line. ARRRGGHHH! EPIC. Never have I so desperately wanted to see something as much as I want to see Dave risk everything but come through and unseat Xander Pooper. You want a lucky omen? Despite me only managing to get to 6 live FutureShock events from 2013 onwards, I’ve actually happened to be in attendance to see every single one of the last five FutureShock Title changes (vacant to Gibson... to Cyanide... to Gibson... to Gallagher... to Cooper)... Oooooooooo. FutureShock Tag Titles; Tables, Ladders & Chairs Match: The Models ©(‘Delicious’ Danny Hope & Joey ‘Hotstuff’ Hayes) vs. The American Wolves (Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards) The Models are the tag team champions, but the Wolves apparently stole the belts. They are therefore up-for-grabs in a TLC match. Should be a great spectacle. Submission Match: Jack Gallagher vs. Zack Gibson This should be nothing short of outstanding. These two have been somewhat tied together throughout their careers and just produce magic. Their GPW series over the British Title produced numerous crackers, but their storied FutureShock rivalry has much greater history and build to it, including a genuine British Match of the Year candidate in the main event of the ‘10th Anniversary Show’ last year. That was where Jack beat Zack to lift the belt in a cleanly fought contest between friends, only for jealous Gibson to turn on him immediately after, leaving Gallagher easy prey for Xander Cooper as described above. They been feuding for the entire year since then, building to this moment. Adrenaline Championship; 4-way Match: Soner Durson © vs. Ashton Smith vs. James Drake vs. Mark Massa I’m obviously expecting fast-paced action and excitement. I rate both Smith and Drake, and Massa is certainly capable (and should be great as the big, power guy here around which the others will fly), but I’ve never been too high on Durson. That said, the occasions I’ve seen him have been sporadic, and he’s obviously got something for a promotion like FutureShock to put their ‘up-and-comers’/’X-Division’ title on him. Can’t see this being bad. FutureShock Women’s Title; Gauntlet Series: Lana Austin © vs. Toni Storm vs. Danielle Hunter vs. Violet Vendetta Winner stays on, just like a session of Streetfighter II between friends. Lana is someone who I happen to have seen quite a bit this year, and the improvement she is making is really noticeable. She was also involved in a humorous instance at the last TIDAL show when the audience worked out her name spelt backwards. Storm and Hunter are both pretty decent, but I’ve never seen Violet before. Singles Match: Bubblegum vs. ‘Deadly’ Damon Leigh Their 2012 feud and series of matches over in GPW was very good, culminating in a brilliant streetfight. This should be equally strong, but has the added interest of reversing the goodie/baddie roles. I also believe this is the first ever time they have fought in FutureShock. Tag Team Match: Wonderland vs. Sexy Kev & John McGregor This is the debut of the circus-like Wonderland. They are comprised of Noah (who has been around FutureShock in various guises since the early years), one of the ex-merchandise girls, and another guy whose identity I’m not able to conclude from the match graphic. Kev is another of those great characters I was talking about, but I’m unfamiliar with newcomer McGregor. With his surname, beard and hairstyle you can obviously see what they are going for. I’m thinking this will be really entertaining, with just the right amount of daft. There’s a webisode of their ‘FutureShock Access’ series available on YouTube which previews the card, explains the backstory and features clips and interviews to build to this. I haven’t seen it yet, but plan on watchingtomorrow before setting off for Manchester. Anyone else coming along to this one? I know “Raiders” will be there... Really excited for this; can’t wait!
  6. It just struck me we don't have any discussion for this group on here anymore, yet they are putting on some of the bigger shows in the capital. For background, 'RevPro' was originally the arm of south-east stalwart IPW:UK that was running the regular SIttingbourne events, as well as the 'Revolution' supershow in London. A few years back, they officially split into two, with IPW:UK continuing to run Swanley (and now finding a home in Tonbridge, with other shows taking place in Snodland) while RevPro now runs a new venue in Sittingbourne, as well as loaded-up 'supershow' events several times a year in London's York Hall. And no, this group has nothing to do with the SoCal indy group of the early 00s Revolution Pro Wrestling, also shortened to RevPro... I was a longtime follower of IPW:UK, dating back to the awesome Orpington days, through Swanley, to Bromley, and then Sittingbourne. There was a time when their Sittingbourne events were the best thing going on these shores, but went to my final one in February 2012 when they seemed stuck in a samey-samey pattern, weren't particularly exciting anymore and I could no longer justify the pain-in-the-arse 5+ hours it would take for me to get down to some Kent hell-hole. The above-mentioned split then occurred, and when the RevPro announced running a 'higher' tier of supershows in York Hall, Bethnal Green, they had me interested again. The York Hall shows so far have been inconsistent. The June 2013 show (Liger vs. Devitt) was a bit crap, but the October follow-up (Tanahashi vs. Marty, Ricochet vs. Devitt, Zack vs. Davey, Elgin vs. Dar) was outstanding, easily the best one-off British show I saw that year. I didn't bother with the 'High Stakes' show in early 2014 as the line-up (Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Colt Cabana) did nothing to inspire me, but then June 2014 show (Nakamura vs. Zack, Steen vs. Marty, Devitt vs. Adam Cole) was again superb. The last show, 'Uprising', in October wasn't particularly good, but did have some standout moments such as Will Ospreay vs. Matt Sydal, and enjoyable appearances from Kazuchika Okada, Austin Aries, Rikishi and Too Cool. That was followed up by an event the next day in a Clapham nightclub where I felt completely and utterly ripped off after opting for the 'premium' £30 seats, couldn't see a damn thing and ending up standing like everyone else. So, RevPro's next York Hall event is 'High Stakes 2015', TODAY. I admit to forgetting to pay attention to the full line-up when they don't post on here, so checked Facebook this morning. While it isn't their strongest card, it does look like it could be a decent show: - AJ Styles vs. Will Ospreay - Ricochet vs. Marty Scurll - Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian vs. 2 Unlimited - Rocky Romero vs. Josh Bodom - The Hooligans vs. Joel Redman & Mystery Partner - Sha Samuels vs. Jake McCluskey - Lord Gideon Grey's Open Challenge - Colt Cabana returns after losing a 'Loser Leaves' stipulation bout last year. I have no idea about the titles anymore, since no news seems to be reported from their smaller shows that take place between the York Hall showcases. All the floor seating is now completely sold out, but balcony tickets remain. There are, however, people trying to offload spare floor seats on the Facebook page, and I know 'Gadge' on here has 3 spare 2nd row tickets he is looking to sell. I'm looking forward to the show. They normally try to make them feel special with big fancy entrances for some of the performers, and Styles/Ospreay and Scurll/Ricochet could be tremendous. I have come to have a soft-spot for 2 Unlimited's spot-spot-spot tag style, and the Irish siblings are like a throwback to the early 00s indy scene (except with an awesome 90s dance entrance rather than generic nu-metal). So, yes. If you're going, see you there. If not, I'll probably be tweeting the main goings on (@BenPCorrigan - it's all I use my Twitter for these days actually...).
  7. The PROGRESS Wrestling Thread

    There was no official thread for last Sunday’s show, plus none has appeared for the next one, so we may as well start one all-encompassing thread for the promotion. So, last weekend was ‘Chapter Fourteen – ThunderBastard’ in front of the now-regular sell-out of 700+ at the Electric Ballroom in Camden. Some thoughts/news/happenings: For the past couple of months there have been viral email messages, posters, weird video and sound interruptions hinting at ‘The Faceless’ coming. This continued here, with posters up in the toilets and ‘subliminal’ flashes during the usual pre-show airing of past matches on the big screen. Think of the stuff that led to The Age of The Fall coming into ROH back in about 2007. Also, in what may or may not be related, upon entry into the Ballroom a very serious-looking bald guy in a suit was walking around ringside, introducing himself to everyone as they sat down. Can’t remember his name. Will Ospreay won the ThunderBastard match, which also featured Paul Robinson, Darrell Allen, Joey Lakeside, Danny Garnell, Stixx, Wild Boar and Marty Scurll. This was done like a rumble, with staggered entrances, but eliminations occurred by pinfall, submission or DQ rather than over the ropes. Darrell, recovering from a concussion suffered at the Sonisphere festival showcase matches, seemed to be knocked silly again during his opening exchanges with Ospreay. That was scary, but word came back that he was doing fine later on. Robinson, who turned on Ospreay at ‘Chapter 13’, got himself disqualified on purpose (as he did at the ‘World Cup’ show last month) so he didn’t have to fight his former partner. Marty entered to ‘Pretty Fly For A White Guy’, doing this awesome big dancing, singing entrance. The closing stages between him and Will were terrific. Ospreay, who only recently won back his place in PROGRESS, got the upset win which he did a brilliant job of getting over as a big deal with a fantastic emotional celebration. He is now Mr. ThunderBastard and has earned himself a future PROGRESS Championship shot. Match was understandably awkward during the early going and not much happened down the middle but, as above, the final one-on-one was really great. Mad Man Manson’s Open Challenge was answered by ‘No Gimmicks Needed’ Michael Giiiillllllllllllbeeeeerrrrrrt. Match was real good fun, with Manson trying to clown around and Giiiiilllllllbbbbeeeerrrrrtttt being ultra-serious and having none of it. Giiilllllbbbbeeeerrrtttt won by submission. Mark Haskins beat Martin Kirby. This was Kirby’s first singles match in PROGRESS, I believe. This was fine. FSU (Mark Andrews & Eddie Dennis) beat The London Riots (Rob Lynch & James Davis) to retain the PROGRESS Tag Team Championship Shield. Wow, this was great. I’ve been coming to PROGRESS for well over a year now and have seen The Riots really develop into a polished act. Right now, I’d even rank them as one of the top 5 teams in all of the UK. ‘Fuck Shit Up’ also make a brilliant team, bringing incredible fire and infectious energy. This one played out with the Riots beating on FSU forever, getting long heat on each of their opponents. Eventually, FSU came back and it was INSANE. Mandrews did a shooting star press from the top rope to the floor but slightly overshot. When he came up, he was bust open from the eyebrow, from colliding with either the floor, the front row of chairs or something else on the floor. This actually made it even better, as the bloody, battered hero fought through and kept coming. Epic, gripping drama. Riots went for their toss-up spear move on Mandrews, but instead of landing into the spear Mark took his opponent over in a sort-off huricanrana for the winning pinfall as Eddie held onto the other Riot. Cue a massive, massive celebration party where everyone just went absolutely nuts in their elation and adoration of FSU. The ultimate fell-good moment as two of PROGRESS’ favourite sons scored an unlikely win against a team that had so far remained UNBEATEN and looked unstoppable. Like I said, wow. After the interval, ENDVR trainees Ali Armstrong, Pastor William Eaver and Chuck Mambo contested a good, colourful, energetic bout in the first round of the 2014 Natural Progression Series. The crowd reacted to these three, making their main show debuts, as though they were long-established and that took it up a notch. As slow as I am, it was only midway during this match that I ‘got’ William Eaver’s name… The wacky Ali Armstrong (he’s like a goofy Kurt Angle) got the win to advance in the tournament. Jimmy Havoc beat Noam Dar to retain the PROGRESS Championship Staff... but only just. Dar’s entrance saw him come out with a load of guys in white face-masks all wearing different versions of his own ring gear. This confused a hell of a lot of people who thought this meant Dar was behind all this ‘Faceless’ thing, but that is apparently not the case (the masks were a little bit different, I suppose). For me, this wasn’t much of a match in the early going. It didn’t do much to capture the attention of the crowd who, not particularly engrossed in the action, entertained themselves by just singing songs with ‘Dar’ in them (songs like the ‘Dar’ versions of No Limits, Baby Give It Up and the Imperial March that started in PCW had made their way down south, but creative PROGRESS fans have taken it and gone even further to include soap themes, the darts song and more). That being said, the match picked up and turned into a brilliant piece of drama at the end as people increasingly picked on Dar starting to look like the guy who would win back the title for PROGRESS. Havoc kept going for the Rainmaker, including Dar kicking out after one for an amazing near-fall, while Dar was trying to lock Havoc up in submissions. The finish saw Noam catch Jimmy in either a chicken wing or a million-dollar dream sleeper (can’t remember), but Havoc do the old Bret Hart finish where he pushed back off the ropes to catch Dar in a pinning situation. The deal was, though, that Havoc was tapping out when the pin was being made, but referee Chris Roberts didn’t see it because he was making the count. DAMMIT ROBERTS. Afterwards, a disappointed Dar beat up on Havoc until his Regression buddies ran in for the save. This brought out FSU for a big stand-off, and promoter/owner/host Jim Smallman promising they had to start sorting out this PROGRESS vs. Regression thing once and for all, setting up an 8-man tag for ‘Chapter 15’ Samoa Joe beat defeated Rampage Brown in the main event. And what a main event it was. Too bad dudes beating each other up in front of a raucous, red-hot audience cheering them on. Joe, over here for his first non-TNA appearance since 2007, was treated as a god by this crowd and it seemed to fire him up. Rampage, equally, was accepted as the hero of PROGRESS, a genuine top-line main event superstar. Everyone singing along to “I WILL BE HEARD” absolutely demonstrates how over h is with this crowd now while simultaneously making him look lik the hot property. He was the PROGRESS Champion last year and wasn’t this ‘over’, but has looked awesome in his performances since distancing himself from Screw Indy Wrestling and in going to the final of the ‘World Cup’ last month representing England. In seeing him across the country for PROGRESS, PCW, True Grit and more, I probably don’t think there is anyone better than Rampage in this country at the moment. It really has all come together for him and he is at the very, very top. Someone started singing “He’s got a hairy chest, on his chest” which was pretty funny. Joe wiped out the front row and destroyed 2 chairs with a tope suicida then hit the musclebuster in the ring which looked to all the world like the finish, only for Rampage to kick out at two, look like a boss, and send everyone crazy. Joe finally did put it to bed with a hyyuuuge lariat. Afterwards, Joe put over PROGRESS, it’s fans and British wrestling and talked about being a judge on British Bootcamp II. He said everyone with PROGRESS tickets was invited to the Bootcamp show at York Hall for free, then called Rampage back into the ring to invite him along as one of the competitors. And that was that. Another crazy hot show from PROGRESS, in more ways than one. No doubt both the action and the atmosphere were great, but by that point I was absolutely knackered and burned-out from the weekend so far (two more red-hot shows in the awesome Dragon Gate UK weekender, plus all the day-long drinking and antics that go with it) that I didn’t really enjoy it as much as I normally do. That’s not PROGRESS’ fault, though having to queue for 2 hours beforehand in the heat on Camden high street certainly didn’t help. I also found there were a load more twats at the show than usual too and by this point in the weekend I didn’t have much patience and/or tolerance. There was some woman behind me that just kept screeching “You’re story’s boring” “Jim, your story is boring” and “Sto-ry’s bor-ing” (what the hell does that even mean, anyway?!?) and spent the entire last match just chanting “The referee’s a wanker”. I can’t complain on a personal note, since I’m normally first or second row (and it was second here), but the whole ‘cheap standing tickets’ thing needs sorting too, since it ends up with ‘standing’ people actually coming in late, filling any gap and actually ending up a lot closer than some of those with seats. In some cases, this means the ‘standers’ actually end up obscuring the view of some of those with seats. There was a also group of knobheads with standing tickets that just pushed their way to the front and refused to move saying stuff like “Make me”. Later on they were shouting stuff like “FAGGOT” at Chuck Mambo and then later started lobbing bottles in the ring. Some people on the balcony quite rightfully started shouting at them for that shocking behaviour, and the main knob tried to start on him to the point Jim Smallman had to break it up over the mic. Funny thing was, this twat was taking the piss out of the guy on the balcony for his appearance, calling him four-eyes and stuff, but he himself was one the weirdest looking fucker in there, with a completely bald head apart from then these two stupid wisps of hair right on his forehead that were spiked up like devil horns. It’s a shame, because PROGRESS has always had an incredibly friendly atmosphere and strong sense of belonging, like we’re all part of this big, cool thing, but there was always going to be a time as it started to grow and expand that the dickheads would start turning up. Still, this shouldn’t sour what was a yet another really, really great show from a promotion that is on a white hot run. It’s probably the single best promotion in the London/south-east area at the moment, and up there as one of the top 4-5 in the whole country. Next main show is ‘Chapter Fifteen: Just Because You’re Paranoid Doesn’t Mean They Aren’t After You’ (Nirvana lyric reference), back in Camden’s Electric Ballroom on Sunday 28 September, followed by ‘Chapter Sixteen; Very Very Very Breaky Breaky Breaky Bishi Bishi” on 30 November (PCW vs. ROH weekend). Chapter 15 so far: High Stakes Tag Match: PROGRESS (Noam Dar, ‘ThunderBastard’ Will Ospreay, Eddie Dennis & Mark Andrews) vs. Regression (Jimmy Havoc, Paul Robinson, Rob Lynch & James Davis) If Havoc is pinned, he loses the PROGRESS Title to whoever beats him If Dennis or Andrews are pinned, FSU lose the Tag Title to whoever beats them (who can then name a co-champ) If Ospreay is pinned, he loses his earned title shot to whoever beats him. If Dar or Robinson are pinned, they must leave PROGRESS Wrestling If Lynch or Davis are pinned, the pair of them must leave PROGRESS Wrestling Already got my front row ticket sorted for that one...
