FWA News Update

It has been revealed that at the British Uprising 3 pre-show special, British Uproar, Colt Cabana will go one on one with Dirk Feelgood . This will be the colourful Monk of Funk’s major FWA show debut in what should be an extremely entertaining battle of two of wrestling’s funny men, exclusively for Gold, Silver and Bronze ringsiders to enjoy.

Another match at British Uproar is being finalised as we go to press and we hope to have more news on this very soon. Doors will open for British Uproar at 4.45pm on Saturday November 13.

The second name to be added to the giant FWA Gold Rush Battle Royal on Sunday November 28 at Broxbourne Civic Hall is one half of the FWA Tag Team Champions, the mega-popular butler Simmons.

Simmons joins James Tighe as the announced names for the Gold Rush, the winner of which will receive an FWA British Heavyweight Title shot some time in early 2005.

More names will be added to the Gold Rush in the coming weeks.

The Daily Star will exclusively reveal the name of the American star who has been signed up for an FWA All-England Title shot at Gold Rush.

Sources say this star has visited these shores before and has notched up an impressive record in the FWA, which is why he has been placed in line for a shot at the champion coming out of Uprising, whether that turns out to be Hade Vansen or Jack Xavier .

Buy The Daily Star and read Patrick Lennon’s Fighting Talk column this Saturday, or stay tuned to later in the day to find out who this mystery man is.

A brand new showcase for British wrestling will debut on Friday November 19 on The Wrestling Channel.

Hosted by Power Slam journalist Mo Chatra , UK Round-Up will feature footage from several British wrestling promotions and also the long-awaited matches from FWA Unsigned, filmed at the Horwich Leisure Centre in Bolton earlier this year.
