UK Scene #252



By: Saz
24 April 2007

Wrestling 101 UK Scene RSS Feed | Feeds

Welcome to the interactive UK Scene with your friendly neighbourhood Saz.

Back from our forced holiday, both myself and Devilish Angel are back to work, tanned and ready to go.

Before the site stopped for maintenance I was talking about wrestling companies and how they opened up:

With more and more wrestling companies opening up North, could this indicate a growth in the independent industry? Or is this another example of the phenomenon known as the "I wanna be in charge" factor .

If you don't know what the former is then I shall explain, there are three models.

Model 1- The disagreement:

A wrestler or a group of wrestlers disagree with how the promoter of a company they work for is running things, they begin to make it obvious that they think things would be run better if they did it themselves. Finding no one usually listens to them, they sulk and take all their mates to make their own promotion with the sole task of burying the original promotion. There's a war of words between the two promotions, usually public, but in the end the offshoot promotion either slowly succeeds or fails miserably and the people who were the dissenters find themselves becoming exactly like the promoter they rebelled against, but at least they are in charge. Which was what it was all about really!

Model 2- The let's get famous quick scheme:

This is the classic that gives UK wrestling the bad name. A group of wrestlers all working together each play promoter of their own federation, then they work each promotion with each other to try and make a name for themselves on t'internet. The problem is t'internet really doesn't give a shit and, because there is no quality control (they are all mates wrestling to get their name about and not to put on the best shows), they are putting on God awful shows that turn the general public off UK wrestling for good!

Model 3- Hit em hard and hit them spectacularly (Oops where did all my money go?):

More money than common sense, likes wrestling and wants to do a management sim live and with real wrestlers. They usually have no clue about wrestlers and will either pay over the odds for good talent or over the odds for crap talent. The wrestlers don't care, they make money from the guy and are happy to wrestle someone who's had 2 weeks worth of training (usually so that guy can advertise that they've wrestled the guy). In the end, bad business choices, arrogance and a hint of bad booking makes the company fold quicker than it began, in the end it burns itself out.

Hopefully, as Northerners are proud of their down to Earth nature, it is none of the above and we can look forward to great shows coming from the regions.

1PW are at it again, this time Italian promotion NWE have fallen foul of the 1PW spin machine. Of course, it was apparent failure to agree terms for their show, in other words NWE don't want Reverend Gauntley to have full control.

And fair play to them, in all regards, from personal experience with the culture, the Italians are so laid back it is unbelievable, warm, friendly and great hosts. So if they are putting their foot down about something, they feel they are being severely mistreated or wronged.

Unfortunately, with several instances of 1PW striking out at the people who were trying to help, 3CW and RQW spring to mind, I cannot help but think that this is another case of 1PW trying to discredit other people for their misgivings before they are found out.

Don't forget, the TWO UK Scene top 50 voting will take place on 5th May 2007 and will end on 2nd of June 2007. Instructions and rules have been placed on the UK scene forum on TWO here.

Keep your eyes out for the talent!

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.

New format to the shows and they will be kept up until the show has passed.

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...

Creating a UK scene that helps the UK promotions is a process of refinement, as you may have noticed the dates are now being kept up until they expire, which means if a week was missed, someone might catch a show the next week.

I am always open to suggestions on improvements and if you have any let me know.

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.
