Devitt and Tracey to Canada, then back to the United Kingdom this coming October.

Paul Tracey and Fergal Devitt will once again be travelling across the Atlantic this coming October. This time however they are heading for Canada. Irelands Greatest Ever Tag Team’ as they constantly refer to themselves when teaming on the NWA-UK Hammerlock circuit will be heading for Quebec where they will spend four days touring with ‘Son of Abdullah’ Dru Onyx, wrestling on shows for Canadian Independent Promotions and also running Professional Wrestling Training Seminars at Dru Onyx’s Training School.

Following on from this they will head straight to Winnipeg, Manitoba where they will wrestle on the NWA 56th Anniversary Show which is being hosted by Ernie Todd and NWA/CWF. The NWA Anniversary Shows and Convention run through the weekend of October 15th – 17th. Tracey and Devitt will then fly directly back to the United Kingdom where they will take part in NWA-UK Hammerlocks October Tour starting on October 19th and finishing on October 31st.

Although Fergal and Paul have been at the last two NWA Anniversary Shows in Corpus Christi, Texas and Parkersburg, West Virginia, this will be the first time they will be competing as a tag team at an NWA Anniversary Show. On previous Anniversary Shows they have both wrestled NWA/CWF star Spyder for the British Commonwealth Title. Their only previous appearance as a tag team in the USA was on an independent show in Oakhill, West Virginia where they defeated the team of Muscles Mansfield and former NWA World Junior Heavyweight Champion Vinnie ‘Star’ Viagra after hitting their front slam/dropkick combination on Vinnie Viagra.

Morrow and O’Rourke also to Canada.

Devitt and Traceys opponents at this years NWA Anniversary Show will be none other than NWA Irelands Carl ‘Shooter’ O’ Rourke and Paddy ‘Suicide Machine’ Morrow.

Both Carl and Paddy have been making great names for themselves on the NWA Ireland circuit recently with great performances on recent shows. Thet have both also been impressing people with good solid performances on NWA-UK Hammerlock Shows in England. Most recently on June 19th at the Stour Centre in Ashford, Kent in a NWA-UK  V  NWA Ireland Card, O’Rourke reached the final of a King of the Ring Tournament where he narrowly lost to ‘World Class Athlete’ Paul Vault. On the same card Morrow was in an Eight Man NWA-UK  V  NWA Ireland Tag Team Match when he teamed with NWA Irelands Phil ‘The Thrill’ Boyd, Danny ‘Renegade Angel’ Butler and Paul Fury against the NWA-UK team of Tank, Danny Williams, David Deville and Zack Zabre Jr.. Prior to this event O’Rourke was last wrestling in the UK on NWA-UK Hammerlocks Live Event in Cardiff on June 5th while Morrow was on NWA-UK Hammerlocks Live Event in Margate, Kent on April 19th.

Both Carl and Paddy are looking forward to travelling to Canada this coming October and all at NWA Ireland wish them well. This will undoubtedly be their first trip of many to compete across the Atlantic.

NWA-UK Hammerlock also to Canada.

There will also be an NWA-UK Hammerlock match at this years Anniversary Show. Former NWA-UK Hammerlock Heavyweight Champion ‘Vigilante’ Johnny Moss will take on up and coming young British star Byron Black. Moss who has wrestled in the USA on many times before is also looking forward to travelling to Canada and this match should be a good one.

Female Fighting Frenzy!!

Get ready for the most explosive female fighting tournament ever to hit the UK. NWA UK are looking for eight brave young women who will take part in a unique competition, part wrestling, part tough woman, part MMA, part street fight, to find out who really is the toughest of them all. There’s never been anything quite like the Female Fighting Frenzy!

The event is to be held in the comfortable surroundings of a martial arts dojo in Kent, and will be staged in a pro-style ring. There is a licensed bar onsite, so that spectators can relax as they watch the action. And what action it promises to be! Eight women will be paired off against each other in four first-round matches. The winners will meet in the semi-finals, with the two winners from there battling it out in the Grand Final.

The format of the fights is like nothing ever seen in the UK before. There will be a referee on hand to ensure the safety of the combatants, but there will be no pins. Matches will be decided on best-of-three submissions only, no time limit. As in MMA matches, rules are kept to a minimum. There is no gouging, scratching, kneeing or closed-fist punching, but apart from that, anything goes! With hair-pulling, face slapping and even kicking allowed, these fights will get rough. They won’t be for the faint hearted.

Space is limited, and its strictly first-come first served. With seven fights guaranteed, it’s should be one of the best value afternoons of female combat in the business. Ladies! Interested in testing yourself in serious sporting competition?
