UK Scene #179



By: Saz
3 July 2005

Wrestling 101 UK Scene RSS Feed | Feeds

Hi Wrestling fans, it's old Sazza here to cover the British scene again, I think I did this same time last year as Adam went off to America and despite the mess I made of the place last time, I've been allowed to put forth my views here... for the time being.

So I would just like to take this opportunity to go MWAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA!

Right, now that's out of my system it's time to look at what the UK scene is up to this week.

I think the first promotion that I have to tip my hat to is PPW, ok so I know the promoter on first name basis, but he has a vision and I have been a part of it. Pro Power Wrestling at the moment is doing what I think the UK scene has been crying out for, regular shows in Wales.

PPW has two shows this week, the first is Thursday 7th July in Rhymney, the second being the day after in Port Talbot, if the guy is making enough to do 2 venues a week it is something to take note of.

You may not have heard of all the names that he employs, but a lot of the talent have put on shows that bring the audience back for more everytime as well as Welsh talent, yes UK Scene fans, Welsh wrestlers DO exist! Honest!

I had a bit of a spurious email from RBW telling me that their current plans seem to be up in arms, here let me show you:

With various contests won unfairly, as well as Ross Jordan's departure, RBW has decided that the tournament will be cancelled, and rather than restart the tournament, one contest will take place to crown the new Champion.

I also got this:

RBW have today announced the official weight categories in which all RBW wrestlers fall into, also connected with the Championship of their respective division.

Divided up into Welterweight, Middleweight and Heavyweight, the complete listings can be found below:

Welterweight - Including British Welterweight Championship.
All wrestlers up to the maximum weight of 83kg/182lbs. Please note that any wrestler in this category can compete for a Championship in a higher weight category.

Middleweight - Including British Middleweight Championship.
All wrestlers between the minimum weight of 84kg/185lbs and up to the maximum weight of 93kg/205lbs. Please note that any wrestler in this category can compete for a Championship in a higher weight category, but not a lower category.

Heavyweight - Including British Heavyweight Championship.
All wrestlers between the minimum weight of 94kg/207lbs and upwards, with no maximum weight. Please note that any wrestler in this category cannot compete for a Championship in a lower category.

Tag Team - Including British Tag Team Championship.
There are no weight restrictions within the Tag Team division.

With a main event being cancelled and Weight categories allow lighter weight wrestlers go on bigger wrestlers gives me the distinct impression that RBW are having problems with getting wrestlers to perform for them. However, it's always good to see that their associate company RBWA are going from strength to strength.

On a separate angle, I heard that one company (no names here) forced 1 hours of really bad wrestling on an audience and charged them 4 for the pleasure. The excuse was that a few of their members got injured in the dressing room, excuse me? Injured in the DRESSING ROOM???

What the bloody hell were they doing apart from geting changed like they were supposed to?

From what I have been told, this show has done the area's wrestling the worst disservice, so I have one clear message for this company, get decent wrestlers or shut down! No wrestler worth anything would "injure" themselves in the dressing room.

I think now would be the best opportunity to put my thought of the day across, we know things go quiet during the summer, people move on and life changes.

However it does seem that because of the way the UK scene is we seem to be losing a lot of the personalities that actually keep the UK Scene interesting.
My trainers told me once that you always get to meet the most interesting people on the road and they are right, I have met some really interesting people, some i get on with and some I don't. I do find it sad when people give up, WZW promoter as I knew him was the rock of WZW and I have heard very little about them since he left!

Same comes along with the "press" personalities, I think we will all miss Adam Sibley, I know he has been very supportive of me during my time here and I think he has set himself out as one of the definitive opinions on Internet Wrestling views.

I'm going to leave the FCW news to Draven next week, as he is on the inside and is more versed in their actions, this however is it from me as I had only a few days to prepare.

Normal service resumes shortly

Don't forget to take a look at Scott Future's column this week, it has some wise words about summer wrestling, let you in on the fact that wrestling in the UK has a season!
