Interesting news for a few reasons.

 

- While I think it was known, this seems to confirm that they are pressing ahead with the idea of a WWE:UK TV show, either as Network content or for a UK TV partner.

 

- Venue choice would seem to indicate something along similar lines to NXT and would appear similar to Full Sail's studios (though slightly bigger).

 

- Offering the best tickets via pre-sale to PROGRESS mailing list members further underlines the relationship between PROGRESS and WWE.  What with PROGRESS giving a load of people new custom entrance themes on their last shows (and then openly asking for bands/producers/etc. to get in touch about producing new music), which we were told was the final step in ICW getting on the Network, I guessing it's looking fairly likely that we'll see some PROGRESS content on the Network before long. Not sure if they've also offered the same presale to ICW, RevPro, OTT, etc. customers.

 

- .... and WAW perhaps look to be on board too, coming under that same umbrella (EDIT:... or maybe not, listening to Ricky's interview....)

 

Oh, and:

Tv tapeing?

They're running 2 consecutive days in a tv studio. They havent announced them as tv tapings but it's pretty obvious that they are going to be.

 

The most interesting thing to me is the timing.

 

Meltzer stated last night that a deal between Anthem & ITV will be announced imminently.

 

As with the UK tournament being announced shortly before World of Sport aired, this announcement of tapings is being made just before Anthem & ITV make their big announcement. Both things purely coincidental of course. (wink wink).

 

The Norwich tapings don't clash with any PROGRESS/Rev-Pro/ICW dates but the 1st night does clash with an Over the Top Dublin show on May 6.

This much is true - although it gets used for gigs, club nights, boxing as well as wrestling EPIC remains a set of fully-functioning TV studios. Used to be ITV Anglia's "large floor" studios. Trisha used to be broadcast from there.

 

From what I've seen on Facebook, it looks like WAW are debuting an even swankier entrance set-up tonight. Guess we know why now!
