Let's talk FWA

Recommended Posts

What I want to know is, what happened to Jewish Darren? He always used to be around that scene. Not sure if he worked FWA shows or not though. I remember topics about him on TWO, seemed like a nice chap.

He wrestled a fair bit afterwards as Tex Benedict and he was training at LDN for a little while when working for them. Last I heard he'd moved to the USA I think and possibly even gotten married.He was a really top bloke, one of the nicest guys I met while training years ago.

Can't possibly miss this opportunity to plug the book for those who haven't read it yet.http://www.amazon.co.uk/Holy-Grail-British...il+greg+lambertIt's also on Kindle.

Internet forum awareness is the holy grail to them.
Nah, not any more. Learned the hard way about that. It's just one of many ways to make people aware of your product, and certainly not the best way. I would be stupid to ignore it altogether though. Edited by Victor Is God

I have fond memories of the shows I attended back in the Morecambe Dome (2003-04). Hearing a building of 300 people, grandparents and all, chanting "you suck balls" at newcomer Leroy Kincade was priceless. I also remeber a friend of mine bringing a large cardboard penis to the show and thrusting it at poor Leroy's head while he writhed on the floor in pain. Wasn't his best day at the office. Corino and Cabana were highly amused at signing the afore mentioned cardboard cock

 

Beyond that all I have to say is that this thread should really just be about Buttercup:

For 2 years or so it was fantastic and it was good fun while it lasted. Crunch 2002 to Uprising 3 were the prime times for me, but Uprising 3 is what really killed it. After that the hype just didn't mean anything. What struck me as odd in reading Greg Lambert's book is that I'm sure I was at some of the post Uprising 3 shows, but I just have very little recollection of them and I had (have even, if it's still going) absolutely no interest in the new FWA.

 

Flash Barker beating the snot out of Low Ki remains a highlight for me. Low Ki was lucky that Flash let him live as he could have taken him at any time. At any time.

Here's a question for everyone, who was the most underrated wrestler in the FWA? Someone who should of gone further but is now not even working in the business?My pick - Guy Thunder, he had the look and for a big man could move, he lacked charisma but in the right role could of done really well. I also think Jorge Castano and Scotty Rock were under used, they tore the house down with the likes of Jodie and Jonny. I also think the New Breed were a hell of a team who frequently tore the house down.It sucks but politics kept a lot of these guys out of the FWA.

Jorge Castano is still in the business. Saw him a couple of weeks ago on an AWW card. I think he's regularly worked All Star shows since his FWA days ended but don't quote me on that.

This would be the mentality of why Alex Shane and his ilk will amount to nothing despite how many ventures they try their hat at: Internet forum awareness is the holy grail to them. When Greg saw this topic, instead of contributing, his dick got hard for three Kindle sales...
Why piss on his parade? He's had a book published that some people on this foum have enjoyed. Good on him.

I enjoyed the original FWA as a whole. Saw some good wrestling, met some really nice people from off here. It really went down hill from Uprising 2 onwards until the end. The relaunch was for the most part pretty gash, lots of bullshit about becoming the number 1 wrestling company in the world by wrestling at Thorpe Park in front of 8 disinterested people, and don't forget all FWA wrestlers will have their black armbands to show how good they are. I know 1 wrestler who got his black armband because he had a car and drove people about.

They even censored it in the video. I use the word video correctly. Alex Shane didn't believe that people north of Watford could afford DVD players

Another thing that was surprisingly cack about FWA.VH bloody SAnd their inclination to release things as part one and part two
