UK Scene #245 *End of Year Special*



By: Saz
22 December 2006

Wrestling 101 UK Scene RSS Feed | Feeds

Welcome to the interactive UK Scene with your lovable compiler and commentator, Saz.

So now it is Christmas...

The year is nearly complete, save for a few shows closer to the big 25 and from what I've had to report over the year it's time I look back and see the movers and shakers.

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.


North

WZW have recently been advertising their shows here at Wrestling 101as well as Talk Wrestling Online, so we know they are still going, which is great! They've yet to get their name and their stars banded about as much as they did 3 years ago, but, if it is due to rosters coming and going, they will have had to start again and that does halt the walk.

NPWA continue to produce shows, however, not with as much vigour as last year, or should I say not with as much advertisement of their shows as last year. This isn't too much of a problem though as they keep on producing shows, which means they are pulling in the crowds, so perhaps they're concentrating on local shows.

3CW also continue to produce shows as they did last year, I think we all know they are striving for bigger and better things and I would suspect that this year and probably next year will be revenue generators so they can realise that vision.

1PW has had more public falling outs than Roy Keane recently and are definitely suffering a cut your nose off epidemic. There's not a lot else I can say about 1PW for fear of a nasty email or something complaining about bad press.

South

With the public demise of FWA there has been a scramble for the title of hottest company in Britain.

Let's face it, the Southern region of our country is never going to acknowledge anything North of Watford, that gripe is out of the way let us look at the runners for top southern/Londoner company:

LDN is on the wrestling channel and from what I hear are trying to be old school with their style, which is commendable.

SASW came out of nowhere and has Spud in it so the t'internet tells me, apart from that, I know nothing.

IPW:UK Daniel Edler is seemingly synonymous when it comes to the internet and wrestling and IPW is on the TV, it seems that they are the company that FWA will be handing the torch to, fair play to them I say.

East

WAW have had a tough time of it this year with all the family problems that have revolved around it. Hopefully next year will bring bigger and better things for them.

ACW have still been knocking the shows out for a while now and have also become inventive with their match types, no complaints from me, it's all about entertainment.

Midlands

FCW still rule the roost in the Midlands as they keep churning out the shows with the occasional large show, recently did a t.v. taping for the wrestling channel. They have also had a dramatic change of roster with little effect to their fans. Things are still looking good for them.

MPW fell to the curse of my top tip for 2006 as, disappointingly, disagreements saw the emerence of LPW and MPWA. LPW have been spewing out a quantity of shows, including Wales and charity shows. MPWA have just about got started this year.

SCW folded.

KSW have been doing lots to improve their image and the quality of the wrestling from this time last year, though at least 2 years behind their colleagues in the Midlands area. This year should see KSW really trying to get its name back out there.

Wales

Disappointingly the Welsh companies have had a pretty quiet one when it comes to t'internet, they may have focused more on local advertising and local talent, but I know a few wrestlers have been asked to work shows.

> From my personal experience, Wales is a heck of a long way to go and you expect to be recompensed for your travel and food, which sometimes they can't afford to pay.

As they build up revenue though, we will hopefully see an increase in the amount of shows.

Ireland

IWW doesn't need to advertise anymore as they are on the wrestling channel and make their money that way.

The rest, I fear, have been intimidated by IWW's success, but I urge them to carry on regardless and find their own angle for entertaining wrestling.

Saz's Promotion Pick

Though I loathe London and all it stands for, I would have to award LDN with my pick for this year, they are trying to do their own thing and they just get on with it without trying to bombard us with hype and that's a good thing.

Saz's newcomer pick

Ok, so he's not exactly new on the scene but in terms of development I would have to say Saul Adams is the man to watch for next year, he looks good, wrestles well and has a competent mic manner.

Saz's pick for 2007

Without a doubt I would take a look at what Brandon Thomas has to offer, clever, daring and amusing in his style. He has worked with a lot of promotions including FWA and FCW. With 6 years of experience he is guaranteed to entertain.

Official forums @ Talk Wrestling Online

Talk Wrestling Online is offering forums to wrestling companies as long as they meet these conditions.

Training

If you are interested in becoming a professional wrestling, we are here for you on the Talk Wrestling Online Forums, with a comprehensive list of training schools throughout the UK and now with links to suppliers of wrestling gear too! See how good we are to you?

And Finally...

Well, that's me done for this year, hope you have a great Christmas and good New Year and I'll be back with the UK Scene after the New Year.

Don't forget to interact with the UK Scene, I can still read your comments and questions and involve people in your thoughts through the UK Scene forum.

Take care.

Saz
