Press Release


“Following a meeting of the WAW Championship Commottee after our show in Great Yarmouth last night, and after careful study of the of the video footage, we have upheld the Zebra Kid’s appeal and have reinstated him as the British Heavyweight Champion.

The video evidence showed that Paul Tyrell maliciously stopped the Zebra Kid from re-entering the ring during their title match in Great Yarmouth on August 2nd.

As a result of the committee’s decision, the Zebra Kid will now face “The Dark Angel” Ashe in a title defence at the Town Hall in Hunstanton on Friday, August 20th. However, no matter what the outcome of the match, the Zebra Kid will still face Paul Tyrell at WAW’s 10th anniversary show, “The War of 2004”, at The Talk in Norwich on Saturday, September 11th. “

In 1994, the World Association of Wrestling held their first arena show, “The War of 94”, before a sold-out crowd at The Talk in Norwich.

The rivalry between Knight and Shane has been brewing for nearly a year, and looks set to continue at “The War”.

At the “Summer Sizzler”, the Zebra Kid & Paul Tyrell fought a bruising encounter over the British title. When the match ended in a draw, both men asked Commissioner Steven Howard-Platt for a re-match. The commissioner was happy to grant their request, and once again Zebra & Tyrell will clash at “The War”.

When you think of women’s wrestling in Britain, the two names that immediately come to mind are Klondyke Kate & the Sweet Saraya. Their rivalry stretches back nearly a decade, and has produced some of the greatest matches in British wrestling history. These bitter will clash once again at “The War.”

“The Wonderkid” Jonny Storm is one of the top names in British wrestling today, having competed all over the world for the likes of CZW, TNA, XPW and many more. Having returned from a recent tour of Thailand, the former Cruiserweight Champion made a welcome return to WAW recently. At “The War”, Storm will face tough opposition on former TWA Champion Justin Starr. Starr will prove to be a worthy opponent for The Wonderkid.

Steve Grey and Mal Sanders are legends in the British wrestling industry, and have gained a new legion of fans with their recent appearances on The Wrestling Channel. Even after all these years, Grey and Sanders are more than capable of putting on an excellant pure wrestling contest. At “The War”, these two ring veterans will stage a mat classic.
