biggest draw in the uk?

Recommended Posts

I guess it's akin to asking which team is the biggest draw in British American football. I'm sure there's a UK-based league for the sport, but I wouldn't be able to tell you the name of a team playing.

Its Gateshead Senators im like 80 % sure

I can't name you one British American footballer. Did Martin Offiah once give it a shot? But he doesn't count, because he is the only Rugby League in history player I can name.

Basically what Knightmare says, locally someone may draw for their hometown. Robbie Brookside still pulls a few when he wrestles here in Liverpool, he used to get the odd small feature in local newspapers, though not recently I must add.

 

As for Celebrities being used, I know GPW whose ring announcer on Big Brother (Luke something) was used a fair bit in advertisements. If memory serves me right, that Big Brother Tourettes sufferer who strangely had a bit of a following was used on one or two shows i'm sure. Pretty close to mainstream (shows all you need to be classed as a Celeb) Did they pull huge crowds?

 

I guess if a Celebrity who is popular could give British Pro Wrestling a 'rub' but their people would more than likely talk them out of it as British Wrestling isn't considered 'Cool, It, Mainstream'. WWE they would agree to because its a World Wide promotion and the Celebrity would Global Exposure, but a small show in a Leisure Centre in say, Hartlepool wouldn't even be given a second thought by a Celebrity whose getting exposure in the Daily Star.

John Smith? Osi Umenyiora (who has a superbowl ring)? Mick Luckhurst who was a huge name in the 80's and early 90's due to him presenting Channel 4 coverage of nfl?

 

And you'll know far more league players that that.

 

Scott Gibbs,

Andy Farrell,

Shaun Edwards,

Scott Quinnell,

JONATHAN FUCKING EDWARDS?

I don't know any of these people... JONATHAN FUCKING EDWARDS rings a bell though, but I wuldn't be able to pick him out of a police linie-up.

 

Like most others, I know fuck all about Rugby although I have heard of Johnny Wilkinson, Bill Beaumont and some Offiah chap (named above). I happen to know a couple of former pro rugby players personally though.

Jonathan Edwards the triple jump champ?

That's what I thought!

 

I can probably reel off a long list of Rugby Union players, without ever being vaguely interested in the sport- but no Rugby League players. Sorry Butch, don't recognise any of those names :(

I meant JONATHAN FUCKING DAVIES, but it was twenty to two and I was overexcited.
