Retroman Posted February 12, 2018 Share Posted February 12, 2018 It was my misfortune to tune into Freeport's 5* Wrestling from Liverpool last week, unfortunately I can only report that this latest attempt to revive British Wrestling back onto TV was to say at least an embarrassment. I'm no fan of WWE, never have been and never will but what was dished out on Freesport was the equivalent of watching clown cars competing in formula 1, it made Vince McMahons pantomime production seem positively professional. The venue The Echo Arena I believe was half empty, lacked any atmosphere at all, and was covered in darkness presumable to hide the poor crowd, apart from the ring lights. The commentary team, were amateurish, reading from script and seemed like they had just been dragged out of a Liverpool pub to earn a few bob. The matches were long drawn out affairs pittered with numerous botched moves, carried out by sub standard British Wrestlers and supplemented by Ex WWE so called "Superstars" well past their sell by date. If this is the way forward for British Wrestling then forget it, I'd rather watch repeats of Saturday afternoon World of Sport Wrestling from way back. When at least there was an element of believability and reliability about it. Needless to say I avoided watching 5 * latest offering from Newcastle this week Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
