Had to log in after years to reply to this topic, but oh the memories of the FWA, something me and my mum fondly speak about whenever wrestling comes up. I still have a whole stack of programmes

Ben is right there are loads of them, and El Ligero works for all of them. You are never more than 7 miles from an El Ligero match. 

Unfortunately true. Elisar was one of the original founding members of the FWA and one of the only genuine good guys in a world back then of charlatans and thieves. People that deserved to be in the s

Final Frontiers would probably be a little less legally iffy and more fitting with Frontiers of Honor and the New Frontiers shows they ran. Funnily enough although before my time and I never saw the guy wrestle I connected with Justin Richards on Instagram recently as he teaches English out there after previously being in China, Talked shop only, didn't talk about wrestling, not even sure he knows i'm a fan.

A reunion show would be fantastic, whose around that could still fill the card?

From the top of my head you've got Jonny Storm, Jody Fleisch, Ricky Knight, Zebra Kidd, Nikita, Simmonz, Ross Jordan, Pac still relatively active

Plus a few that could be tempted back and a couple of imports, would make a half decent show at York Hall or Broxbourne.

We had some discussion of such back on pages 26/27/28 of this thread.

Enough, is the answer.

Book it!

Is Jack Xavier still about? I'd pay good money to see Zebra Kid beat the H&M t-shirt off of him again. Poor bastard. 

Also, would a small tour work? It's been too long since I made the trip to Horwich Parkway.

I'm afraid Horwich Leisure Centre, as it was, is no more! Here's a photo I took walking past last August.

Someone, maybe Elisar, has uploaded what seems to be the whole back catalog of the FWA to youtube this week. Like the original and the NEW AND IMPROVED MASSIVE CLASS HONEST! 2009 version of it, than ran a few shows. Madness. Going to have a took through this.

Someone's really put a lot of effort into this; a real labour of love. From what I can see it is every bit of footage ever officially released by FWA. The old 1999-2000 Portsmouth/Halifax/Bolton stuff. The 2001 PortsmouthTV series. Every individual show that was ever released. The TWC series. The 2009 relaunch version.  All with a new little custom intro title screen and music added. Perfectly organised into chronological order in playlists for each year. The TWC series is the 'uncensored' late night version too.

They've even taken stuff that was on compilation tapes (the fan club "exclusive" tape, best ofs, the Northern Exposure tour comp etc.) and even stuff that was only ever released as bonus footage on the Academy and shoot interview tapes, split them off into the individual shows they were originally from and uploaded and labelled them accordingly. 

Was always planning on doing something like this with my own FWA collection, mainly because I wasn't sure anybody else ever would, but now I don't need to bother (and they've managed to get more stuff than I ever had).

The only stuff I know that was filmed that isn't on there is things that weren't ever officially released by FWA themselves - the uncut version of the wonderful Jonny Storm vs. Colt Cabana matchfrom Hotwired 2004, which only appeared in full on Colt Cabana's European Vacation DVD, for instance. I've got a couple of "unofficial" hard cam versions of unreleased shows kicking about somewhere too (the first Enfield show, for example) that aren't on there too.

EDIT: just spotted the first missing one: NOAH Limits 2 from Colchester in 2006. With Bret Hart. Was definitely filmed/released as I have the DVD...
