UK Scene #122



15 May 2004

Wrestling 101 UK Scene RSS Feed | Feeds

Welcome one and all to my latest rambling on all things good and sometimes bad about the UK wrestling scene. The news dominating this week of course is the closure of SCW and the birth of SWA which has caused shock and confusion north and south of the border so I will do my best to clear that up. We have more Brits abroad to look forward to and good news from WAW and FCW so sit back relax and hopefully enjoy.

We started off this week just gone by with the news that has overshadowed most other announcements this week which was of course the closure of SCW. After more than two years hard work Kenny Morrison and his partners of the board of SCW decided to go their separate ways. To start with SCW was a one man band with Kenny in sole control but as time went on more and more people came on board to the point that they were taking over. This caused a meeting to be called where Kenny Morrison expressed his thoughts and at this time the only decision that they felt they could make would be to dissolve the organisation.

SCW two years ago started the Scottish wrestling scene revival as before they came about the only wrestling that came to Scotland was tribute shows. Since then they have gone on to be a full time organisation with a NWA-UK affiliated training centre. Since their start more promotions have started up in Scotland like BCW so they can claim to have paved the way for Scottish Wrestling. It was only in the last year which SCW really got going though getting wide spread attention in their local press and national magazines like Total-Wrestling. With each show more and more big name wrestlers started to appear on the card like Majik and then British wrestling legend Drew McDonald.

So where does that leave us I hear you ask. Well SCW has closed its doors with all future events cancelled and all titles made vacant. This is not the end of the story though as the remaining members of the board which were left from SCW have formed a new promotion off the back of the old one called SWA (Scottish Wrestling Alliance). This promotion will feature many of the wrestlers who use to work for SCW as well as using the same training centre to train its new up and coming wrestlers. There have been no announcements as of yet on the future plans and direction of SWA but it is only early days. For more information on SWA visit: SWA.t2u.com

Before I finish this piece I must take the time out to congratulate and thank Kenny Morrison for all his hard work over the years. Now as many of you know me and Kenny don’t see eye to eye on a lot of things but you have to respect him for all the effort, time and money he has put in and I think it is a shame that has ended in the way it has. Kenny, wrestling fans in Scotland owe a lot to you my sparring buddy.

EWW’s return last night (14/05) was a huge success by all accounts. I won’t go in to all the results because that’s Goldy’s department so you got to sign up to the TWO Newsletter for that. From feedback I have heard the barbed wire death match was awesome and we have a new EWW champion. One great encouragement though was that the local up and coming boys on the card like Cyclone got a huge reception from the fans and are showing some good promise, keep it up guys. Hopefully another EWW event shouldn’t be too long around the corner as we had to wait too long for this one.

WAW made a huge announcement this week which will be of great interest to you if you live in the Great Yarmouth area. Every Monday over the summer WAW will invade the Atlantis resort in Norfolk starting from July. This is good news for British wrestling as outside of All Star wrestling you don’t see many promotions doing regular shows and these weekly shows will give WAW a chance to develop some brilliant storylines and feuds. The Atlantis will become WAW’s Asylum over the summer and for more details you can log on to AtlantisResort.co.uk

After crowning a first ever champion FCW champion recently in a historic night of wrestling FCW are keeping up the pace with another double header next weekend. On Friday night (21/05) they will be in their regular stomping ground the Collingwood Centre in Great Barr. Then on Saturday night (22/05) they will be at the Irish Centre in Digbeth. Tickets for both events are a steal at £5 so make sure you get down to see them and if you want more information on their roster and history you can go to: FutureWrestling.co.uk

Now some news from the FWA and we must start off with the bad news which is they have had to withdraw the future dates in Winchester at the Riverpark Leisure Centre though with this bad news comes good as there will be an announcement mid July which should see more venues and shows added to the academy calendar.

Aviv Myaan is slowly cementing his status as FWA rookie of the year as he has just received his first booking abroad. Aviv will be going back to his homeland in Israel to work for IPWA. The event will take place on July 6th in Ashkelon. A big well done to Aviv from everyone at Wrestling 101.

Last but not least this week remember if you are up North this Friday (21/05) to check out IWF’s latest show at the Consett Victoria Club. IWF champion Assasin will be putting his belt on the line as will the IWF tag champs the Avery Brothers so it should be a good night of wrestling.

Until next time,

Adam Sibley
