drew4primeminister Posted August 31, 2011 Share Posted August 31, 2011 Not sure if anyone else has picked up on this but, according to All Star's website and quoting Brian Dixon:- "All Star Wrestling will be presenting fewer events through the winter season and into 2012 having taken a conscious decision clearly reflecting the increasingly tough British financial climate." The reasoning behind this, Dixon goes on to explain, is that fans are being much more choosy when attending shows. Is that his way of saying that attendance figures are down? Then, trying I feel, to put a positive spin on the situation, he says:- "Yet, while we are being more selective when booking halls, we will be pulling out all the stops to ensure that bills which do take place are bigger and better than ever." He even comments on other Promotions saying that:- "(we) wish competitors who feel that they can do better at some of our present and former venues, every success." So, is the biggest and most successful promotion in british wrestling, feeling the pinch? Is this reflective of the entire britwres scene or is it just All Star that are struggling? Have to say that this is a bit of a shock. There are no dates on the All Star Calender for the Victoria Halls, Hanley which is one of the stalwart venues of british wrestling. It has serious wrestling history and I tend to think of it the same way in which I regard the Fairfield Halls, Croydon, so if they've stopped putting on shows at Hanley then one would sumise that things look bleak for All Star.
