Let's talk FWA

Recommended Posts

Those photos on the Facebook group are awesome. As the rings were mentioned I was wondering who owned them and were the 3 generations of rings blue, red white and blue, red roped to try and be more specific the same ring with different roles or three different rings. I assumed they resided at the academy. Last time I saw the truly FWA ring was either New Frontiers 2005 or possibly an IPW show in swanley where they had a cage match and I recall it being the academy cage and the old battered up remains of the fwa ring.

Also if anyone knows is the frame work still often used as a stage/entrance way for ipw/rev pro and many more possibly still the same bit of kit the FWA used or is someone making these for each promotion ?

I do believe that Len Davies bought what was left of the rings from Mark Sloan including a 6 sided ring who then ‘gave them’ to Ricky Knight? I’m sure he could confirm this 

He also was given the tri light trussing that Len also bought off Mark.

Ah i'd forgotten about that 6-sided FWA ring the academy used always disappointed I never got to see it used or got to check out an academy show but Portsmouth was always a bugger on the train and everything was all over by the time I had a car.
