Gresham!!! Get in, lad! Well chuffed for Bandido too.

Looks like a great line-up with some much needed lower-card nonsense that I can skip as well so that I don't get too overwhelmed with it all.

Wasn't Hiromu Takahashi the Time-Bomb? Surely this suggests it's him. 

edit, just rewatched the video, didn't notice the UK flag the first time. Never mind.

The aesthetic, 'Death Riders', union jack patch, grunge/pseudo-biker look, the stylised knuckledusters....looks like the contenders are; Chris Brookes, Chris Ridgeway, Drew Parker or Mark Haskins.

There's always the possibly that it's a David Finlay return or one of the Dojo guys repackaged. Maybe even Spike Trivet.

My EWR booking would be Kid Lykos, whose arm injury and subsequent retirement is just a cover story for this debut.

Ridgeway has just been announced as working for NOAH, so unlikely to be him. Can't see any of that list warranting a stylised hype video.

Can’t see it being any UK talent, it’s in an American bar, cowboy boots, the Union Flag patch more likely a connection to here than someone from here. Singles push for Davey Boy Smith Jr?

Someone online suggested Oka may have finished his excursion, hence the UK flag on the jacket, but lord knows how to gimmick him around cowboy boots and taverns.

Apologies, I thought it was obvious and I was just being dense. Did not mean to sound catty.

He 'returned to Japan' in early March I think.
It was put across like his return home was unexpected as Rev Pro had announced him for matches for upcoming shows beyond that time [which you would imagine they would not do were they expecting him to return to Japan] and he has seemingly dropped off the radar since.

No need to apologise, I should’ve been clearer myself

If its Smith Jr that would be a huge let down. Anyone but him, he is so bland. The guy walking in the video is relatively small in stature (based on the legs etc) so I'd go for someone a little smaller.
