IWF News and Notes – 15th October 2004
The card has been announced for the IWF show at the Viz magazine 25th birthday party on 27th Oct. The event will be held at Café De Paris, London and, unfortunately, no tickets will be made available to the general public. I will, however, write a comprehensive review of what should be a fantastic night and a great experience. Hopefully, the event will be available to buy on video and DVD. The card is as follows:
Assassin v Youngsta
Weapon X v Shaun Avery v Liam ‘The Player’ Atkinson
Lee Kyle v Jimmy Blade
Harry Pain v ‘Bad Boy’ Jed Masters
‘Unbreakable’ Bobby Jackson v Pac
The special guest ring announcer for the night will be showbiz legend Nicholas Parsons!
Tickets are also available for the show at Bedlington Community Centre on Sat 30th Oct. Tickets cost £4, from the centre. Details of the line-up will be available soon.
The Viz show will be the first match back for Pac, after returning from a facial injury that has sidelined him for four months. Expect great things in the future of this extraordinary athlete.
Still no word from Weapon X as to when Bobby Jackson will receive his shot at the Ring of Faith title. It seems as though IWF management will have to step in to force the hand of the champion soon.
I was speaking to Jimmy Blade recently and he mentioned that he has not spoken to Assassin since the pair failed to win the IWF Tag Team Championship on Oct 2nd. However, Blade states that the two are still on the same page, and there is no problem between them whatsoever.
I’ve also been trying to find out more about IWF newcomer Nick Damocles, but nobody seems to know much about him. I tried to ask him a question, but was ignored. He certainly caused a good impression by taking Bobby Jackson to the limit, and the big man seems to have a great future in the company.
Lee Kyle seems obsessed with his match against Jed Masters at Gateshead on Nov 27th. I have never seen him looking quite so confident as he does right now, but, it has to be said, Masters looks equally confident, and he has beaten Kyle in the past.
Check out jedmasters.com for a brand new commentary. It’s certainly an interesting read.
The IWF run training sessions at St. Joseph’s Hall, Gateshead every Sunday from Noon until 6pm and very Tuesday from 6pm until 9pm. Training costs £7.50 for both sessions.
