UK Scene #123



22 May 2004

Wrestling 101 UK Scene RSS Feed | Feeds

Welcome one and all to my voyage through another week of UK Scene happenings. There has been a lot going on at the site as you can see so I shall be talking more about this in the column. Also I’ll be taking a look at the latest TV exposure for UK wrestlers and wrestlers being lured away to foreign destinations. So sit back, relax and enjoy reading.

Now if you were in on Friday night and not off out painting the town red you hopefully will have watched “Distraction” It’s the new game show on channel 4 with the presenter that looks like Johnny Vaughn. Well the show has gained a cult audience since it started just for the sheer stupidity of it all. On the show contestants to have to answer as many questions correctly to get through all the rounds but they have to answer the questions whilst having something stupid done to them like electric shocks for instance.

Well last night (21/05) the Flatliner and the Dominator fresh off the back of EWW Resurrection were used on the show to distract the contestants. Whilst the contestants answered questions they were flung around a matted area by the pair. I was quite surprised with how well this piece came off it looked really good and the second girl looked like she was in agony. This section was the only 5 minutes that managed to grab my attention away from Raw as the show is too bizarre for my liking but the ratings don’t lie.

On another bit of TV news I can’t remember where I saw it now but you know when companies sponsor TV shows and at the beginning and end of the trailers they get to screen their little video package which links the show to the product like say when Muller fruit corner sponsored Blind date. Well I can’t remember what show it was now but it was sponsored by Vodafone and low and behold who appears in the promo none other than our Flatliner. I think that man is an asset to the UK Scene as he seems to have a lot of links in the media world as he pops up everywhere.

Now the UK Scene could be in for a bit of rocky time in the upcoming months as finally the inevitable has happened Scott Conway is starting a wrestling promotion out in his new native homeland of Thailand. Scott ran wrestling shows for decades in the UK Scene and were second only to All Star with the amount of tours and shows they put on during their run. Well due to constant work being offered Conway had a group of wrestlers that were very loyal to him and he had a good working relationship with them taking them up and down the country. He had a lot of guys he knew he could depend on.

Well since TWA disbanded in the UK there has not been a great deal of work to go around outside All Star and they couldn’t take on all of the TWA boys so this has left a lot of talented guys in limbo for the last year or so well now there seems to be a solution. Scott Conway is offering the chance to UK wrestlers to come and work for his new promotion in Thailand for three months at a time. Now looking it at a wrestlers point of view who wouldn’t say yes to three months in a hot country they may not have been to before working a lot of nights making money so it would come as no surprise to me to see a few guys leaving our shores for a while.

Scott says he already has a host of UK guys booked for his first run but wants to book more UK guys for tours and shows to come in the future. As he doesn’t have time to get back in touch with everyone individually that use to work for him he is offering an open invitation for UK workers to get in touch with him if they want to be considered for work in Thailand. If you are a UK worker and are interested email: TWAwrestling@aol.com. Whoever Scott books it could lead the UK Scene a little thin on the ground especially if guys are involved in storylines over here and then are away in Thailand for three months it could cause a lot of headaches for UK wrestling promoters.

After being able to look more closely at in-depth reviews from EWW resurrection it looks like once again they are using very strong storylines to draw the fans. That is the UK Scene’s main problem is that we have the talent but not enough promotions work hard enough on the storyline aspect but I must give a round of applause to the EWW creative team who seem to be at their best again. This time round we see a power struggle between rebel groups PMS and the Dead Souls who are determined to run rough shod over EWW. The next time you can see EWW is at "Unified" again at the Palace nightclub on the 27th of August.

FWA are once again gearing up for another tour event next weekend from the Morecambe Dome. The card currently looks like this:

  • Alex Shane and partner TBA v Jack Xavier and Aviv Mayaan (with DJ Pep)
  • XPW European Champion Jonny Storm v James Tighe
  • Simmons v 'The Righteous' Paul Travell
  • Nikita v Stevie Knight

This will be an event with a difference though as it will be the first tour event to have a fan fest during the day of the event. The fan fest kicks off at 3pm and will give you a chance to meet the wrestlers attend a FWA press conference and battle as your favourite FWA superstar in a FWA X-box challenge. Admission for the event is £5 and will take place at the Waterfront bar at the Dome.

Now I must close this week by saying a big welcome to our latest staff member to the UK Scene team K-Star worker Saracen. Now Saracen has been around the UK scene for a little while now and has been always on hand in the forums to share his views and his knowledge to the masses. I think he will be an asset to the team and you can read his first column by going to: ST: Camaraderie in wrestling. Welcome aboard Saracen!

Dan has been busy again lining up all the UK Scene interviews. You can read his latest one with up and coming UK worker Allan Grogan by going to: Allan "The Terminator" Grogan Interview. Dan also had a rare and exclusive interview coming up very soon with the rising star of the UK Scene - Spud, so keep your eyes pealed for that one.

Until next time,
