Power Trip Wrestling - "Against The World"

Recommended Posts

In fairness, dan edge has no business near a ring.

If he can get the crowd's sympathy by being disabled, then he can do a job, and therefore has business in there.
...but if you book him as a heel how is he there for sympathy?To be fair to him Dan Edge is one of the few PTW 'boyz' who has put an effort into his look and character......I'll say not more!

It's wrestling, a (albeit pretend) competitive athletic contest.It's not a charity telethon where you see someone and go "oh bless, here's a donation". And if he's getting sympathy for being disabled, then he's not doing a job. As his job as a wrestler, he is supposed to get sympathy for being beat down but fighting back to try and win through the adversity. With Dan, that's not adversity, that's not even a match.And besides, at shows, kids and fans generally just laugh at him. That's not me being cuntish, it's true.

Marajade, totally yeah, I agree. He is putting in tremendous effort in trying to overcome adversity and for that I applaud the shit out of the lad. Truly I do. I think it's great he does what he does considering.But this is pro wrestling, and it's about wrestlers wrestling. It's not a social club.

In a 'business' full of self important, self deluded, Walter Mitty fantasists, Peter Staniforth routinely raises the bar.

I said to myself I'd not reply....Still, who cares, it's only a message board, eh? StreamingAssumedName....If it was that bad, instead of on here, why not say something TO me on the night? I'd listen, assuming it was said respectably instead of the overly personal tone taken.Or is that far too rational thinking for you?It was my son's birthday. So I brought him into it for the night. Do I give one damn what you think about that? No I don't. Want to tell him to his face he doesn't belong in there? It's called a bit of harmless fun, in an overly serious business of people up their own arse (present company included), and if you cant accept that; well it's not me with the problem.This forum can rot. As far as I'm concerned, all of the self righteous egotistical get themselves noticed allegedly "smart" marks on here can go to hell. Though, to me, you're already there. PTW doesn't need UKFF to draw fans. We've had one hand's worth come out in 14 months. From here on in, PTW will be the only UK promotion with the balls to stand with our middle finger up at UKFF and say "screw you, we dont NEED you". And we'll be proud of the fact, that unlike a lot of the people in the UK wrestling scene who hate this forum but won't admit it - we're clear in how we feel, and we stand by it.So have fun talking about us. Because that's all you're doing. It's not as if we're on forums talking about you! And that's all that I need to say.This is PTW signing off the forum that is single handedly killing UK Wrestling with its arrogant and selfish members, far more than any "bad" show; for good.

From what UKHG said, it seems to be that fans aren't sure to react because he's booked wrongly. That's not his fault.

It's not a charity telethon where you see someone and go "oh bless, here's a donation". And if he's getting sympathy for being disabled, then he's not doing a job. As his job as a wrestler, he is supposed to get sympathy for being beat down but fighting back to try and win through the adversity. With Dan, that's not adversity, that's not even a match.

It's his job as a wrestler to make the fans care. It's not up to me or you how he does it. Just that he does it. Simple. It's about as basic as it gets. If he can make the fans care PURELY by being disabled, then there you are, the fans care and the idiot booker has something that he can work with. It's just a shame that he doesn't know exactly what he's got.EDIT : Still not up to explaining the qualification point then Peter ? Shame that, as you seem to have spoken out of your arse.

Don't hold back Hat Guy. Say what you mean.

What's the point holding back?I'm one of the only regular posters in this forum that has never had, and never will have, any ties to "Britwres~" whatsoever. I have no-one to protect, nothing to hide. No agenda, complete impartiality. I always give my opinions from the point of view of a fan - a fan who has no aspirations towards wrestling beyond enjoying watching it.I like to think I can always be relied upon to tell other wrestling fans my honest opinions about what I see, in the same way I appreciate others who do the same. If something's cack, it deserves to be outed as cack.
That was an excellent post/ review. And when posts are usually that long I tend to get bored and just skip it, but your writing held me all the way through. More stuff like this from you, not necessarily negative, would be great.

Yet more "from the arse" comments from the insane one.

Ah Peter Stainforth, what a marvellous example of awful promoters. I remember the early days of 1PW too well, when Steven hired him to book two or three matches, two of which were to include a couple of "good UK indie guys". What does Pete do? Book every fucking sod who e-mailed him, even a Nigerian Prince who needed $1mil to escape from his captors. Rumours of Brad Flash vs. Viagra NOW man were unfounded however.

Anyhoo, desite Gauntely going mental by throwing

Er haven't you quit the ukff a dozens time already?And as for all the smark comments, isn't "Internet Icon" smarkish? Why would any average person be impressed with a character called that?????????? If anything it would put people off as it would infer someone who is only on the net and revered by the smarks you slate!Am I being personal to you? Yes. Because you are the absolute embodiment of what is wrong with wrestling. A fan who puts on wrestling shows so he can basiclally play EWR with real people. And draw TWENTY PEOPLE! Jesus Pete, can you not see and admit what you are doing wrong and therefore killing that which you so apparently love? You are on every show and every poster every time. Why? Your reward as a promoter should be sold out shows, money made and strengthening the foundation of uk wrestling. Instead you book mates, people who can't wrestle and are untrained and make a mockery of wrestling.It was your son's birthday. No personal offense to the boy at all, all power to him. But he shouldn't be in the ring hitting dan edge with cliperboard shots. Harmless fun? Peter, that is harmFUL because it's a wrestler that you are trying to sell to people as a real threat and a fighter of adversary and able to fight real wrestlers, then he gets ko'ed by a kid?How did you get involved with wrestling and "promoting" Peter? Did you earn respect from your peers and pay your dues? Did you hell. You worked with acw as a manager, left them and launched ptw, (Petey-W if nobody clocked that yet).

Beat me to it! Also, bad cough you have there.What's a typical PTW crowd, less than a hundred? Thank god he doesn't need the Internet to draw fans?Also, someone needs to tell the story about Peter responding to the police being called to his venue by getting in the ring and making veiled death threats. Do Tim or Mojo still post here?

Power Trip, I cannot believe you have completely thrown your rattle out due to two reviews from a viewer. Surely you should be professional enough to take that on the chin and use it to better your product? Or if you think they are only a small portion of your audience and don't speak for everyone, then just ignore it. You have made and your promotion look nothing more than a company run by overzealous teenage prats.
