PCW Troubles?

Now i could be completely wrong with what I've been told and what i'm thinking so thought i would post it on here.

 

Now i love PCW been to so many shows and bought lots of items from them and have no personal problems with them in anyway.

 

Most of this information i have gathered from fans and wrestlers and some of it is from my own research.

 

Paypal account:

 

In the last few months the paypal account has changed so this means that something has happened to the first account. I remember in the back ends of the 1pw gauntley days  the paypal account was changing all the time due to them getting deleted, blocked etc. Could be something and nothing but if there was a problem with the original paypal which lots of orders have gone through why not just carry on with it?

 

Selling so many shows in advance:

 

Another 1pw thing where they were desperate for money they would sell shows 6/9 months in advance just so they can pay for the next show, eventually this will catch up on you especially when you don't get the numbers you need.

 

Wrestlers not been used:

 

Certain wrestlers have stopped working for PCW due to when they asked for a rise in there fee they were belittled and abuse on social media, now i'm not going to name any names but a lot of people know some of the names this has happened to.

 

This might have nothing to do with money just maybe he didn't think they were worth the additional money

 

Dvd sales:

 

This is the worst one of them all, selling dvds for pre orders saying they will be out in a certain date and never been released, the Kris Travis best of was meant to be released early December last year and i know 4 people who pre ordered this and still have not received this. They released a statement a few months ago to say that this would be released May/June, but its now nearly the end of July and still no update (1pw anyone).

 

The link to say this would be released Dec 2015

4th Anniversary show - Dec 2015

I could go on and show you each dvd/blu ray that they have sold to a lot of customers that they should of had over 6 months ago, but i think you will be bored.

 

http://www.prestoncitywrestling.com/news/2016/04/15/important-update

 

As you can see from the above link so many dvds that you could pre order back in late 2015 have still not been released.

 

None of the dvds that were meant to be released May/June have been released.

 

 

Sales:

 

Before the last few shows pcw have been doing big sales, from what i've been told this is because they needed the funds to pay the talent on the next show.

 

http://www.prestoncitywrestling.com/news/2016/06/10/summer-sale-now-on

 

This was the sale PCW did just over 2 weeks before the tribute to the troops show, again i've had people tell me they have not received these dvds and they ordered the first night of the sale.

 

 

http://www.prestoncitywrestling.com/news/2015/12/02/supershow-boxset-mega-deal

 

another sale that still has not been posted out.

 

 

Random bits:

 

They have disabled the comment section on there facebook because everyone was asking where there orders were etc.

 

The PCW limited company accounts have not been submitted for the last year end, these are now ovedue

I don't know anything that goes on behind PCW’s doors, but the final two points could just be down to poor bookkeeping/accounting. If you don't submit your accounts, after so long Companies House closes the company down.

 

They’re always touting for designers and video editors, so the DVD issues may just be because they’re absolutely inundated. Especially with the increase in shows PCW have held this year.

 

I think the issues raised above, when put together may look superficial. They’re just a company with a lot on and could probably improve their communication with customers to mitigate fears and conclusions like the above.

They've been pretty unlucky over the last couple of years.

Del Rio pulling out of Road To Glory over an ACL injury or something like that he didn't seem to have. I saw him last year and I was excepting a statement from the company, he's injured, out for 6-9 months. But he was in the ring in no time. What was that all about?

 

Then there was the incident with Kevin Nash throwing a strop over an expensive flight upgrade barely a week before the show which cost £10k. I know the guy has delicate quads, but surely he should've asked it earlier so it's cheaper? So that was 2 Supershow headliners on the trot pulling out. Think Del Rio had a similar dispute with WXW in Germany.

 

There was EC3 having to be pulled this year for, of all things an audition for The Amazing Race with James Storm. TNA had Robbie E & Brooke on it before who were dating at the time. I know TNA commitments have priority, but that's an unusual one. I was supposed to see him last year, but he got pulled for a set of house shows that was cancelled. Which was a massive gyp because I was looking forward to meeting him to sign my tour programmes.

 

And now there's the collapse of the deal with ROH. Claims that Adam Cole (Bay Bay) was promised to wear the Cruiserweight Title on their programming that didn't happen, little promotion on their end for what would've been the 3rd SOH and the issue of one of their dates booked in Liverpool the same day PCW's in town.

 

What other bits of rotten luck have they had lately? I hope they can pull through. It would be horrible to see a major promotion go.

I think I'd buy into this more if it wasn't the first post from a brand new account. Who joins a forum just to give a thorough account of how one of the country's largest independent companies is having issues, in this sort of depth, with no preamble or history, unless they have an ulterior motive?

 

I'm calling shenanigans.

How long have you been writing this post?

I think it's a copy and paste from another site and was written several months ago. It may, or may not, be the OPs own words.

This is a thing?

Perhaps his unfortunate death at the end of March might have resulted in a change of plan?

Yup, original plan was to make more of the PCW connection, show some of the ROH vs PCW matches (I think highlights of one actually made it onto their TV show) and promote the title on TV. Fludder has also mentioned there was talk of calling up PCW guys to appear on ROH shows which never came through
