Welcome back to the interactive UK Scene with your friendly neighbourhood Saz.
Sometimes I think the years just go in a blink of an eye, before I know it, the UK top 50 British wrestlers is upon us again, last year had some surprises (or wierd anomalies, depending on your point of view) and hopefully this year will once again show how you vote. The only conditions to voting are that they are actively working, they are of British or Irish origin and you are a memeber of the Talk Wrestling Online community, if you wish to learn more about the forums then click here.
You can also go to this thread to take a look at last year's results.
If you are a booker or promoter and would like to add your promotion info here. If it helps get more interest to your shows from the casual web browser, then we're all better off.
What we do care about in all aspects of the UK Scene is your opinion, especially the paying punter, so if you have a say you are more than welcome to express it, whether it is a popular opinion or not.

Training school opens up in Yorkshire
Sometimes people get tired of yet another promotion opening up, whereas the true concern is people opening up gyms that teach you bad habits, bad breakfalls and rubbish storytelling. Apparently a guy called Ryan Lord (who wrestled as Max Rage) is opening up classes. The training is at the Caged Steel gym, which is an MMA place apparently, so the facilities should be ok and will take place on 11th May at 2pm. Check this thread out if it interests you.

> Show Spotlights
Giving time for companies to advertise their shows in their own words.
Kristian Lees vs Carnage - LWL
After once again taking a beating from Carnage at 'Resurrection' Kristian Lees demanded that LWL grant him a Respect Match of his own against Carnage. In Lees' opinion Carnage is showing HIM no respect; now he wants his own shot to teach Carnage a lesson and, in his own words, "Show Carnage what 'New Age' is all about!".
Dave Moralez vs Nick 'U-GENE' Dinsmore - AWW
The Human Hate Machine has wasted no time in taking on the big boys since his inception of the AWW championship. He has been to Italy to defend the title, he took on the former AWW Champion Carnage at the last Irish Club show and now he will go up against a former WWE tag champion and record-setting 9-time Ohio Valley Wrestling Heavyweight Champion, U-Gene.
