IWF In Gateshead, FREE Show – November 27th

Press Release

The IWF are running a FREE show on Sat 27th November at St. Joseph’s Hall, Gateshead (Next to Gateshead Metro Station).  Entry is free but donations for Children in Need will be asked for, give whatever you can spare.  Doors open 6:30 with bell-time 7pm.

Two matches have been announced so far, the rest will follow after the show in Jarrow on Nov 20th.

In a match that has been months in the making, LEE KYLE will go one-on-one with ‘BAD BOY’ JED MASTERS.  These two has a match earlier this year when Masters beat Kyle in a hard-hitting war, after that it appeared that both men moved onto other things.  Kyle spent the summer trying to win the IWF Tag Team titles with his protégé Harry Pain while Masters began trying to build towards getting another title shot at IWF Champion Assassin.  However, on Sept 18th, the issue between these two reared its head once more when Kyle attacked ‘Bad Boy’ after his match.  Why?  When I asked Lee Kyle he gave me t! he following answer.


            “What really annoys me about Jed Masters is that, after beating me in Consett, his IWF career seemed to sky-rocket while defeat has left me treading water over the last few months.  Since beating me, Masters has received a title shot at Assassin and a slot in this summer’s ‘Tournament of Faith’, two opportunities that I was not given.  The straw that broke the camel’s back was when he was invited to compete in Kent for IPW this September.  I know that if I had of beaten him, these opportunities would have come my way and I would have made the most of t! hem. In some ways, I’m annoyed with myself because I know for a fact that I would have beaten him, had I taken him as seriously as I should have.  Masters needs to know that I am now taking him very seriously indeed and have dedicated the last couple of months of my life to preparing for this match.  Jed, as good as you are, come 27th November, I will prove to you what I know for a fact, and that is that you may be good, but you are no Lee Kyle.


Come October 2nd, Jed was placed in a gauntlet against Lee Kyle’s group ‘The Lee Kyle Experience’.  After quickly defeating Kamala’s #1 Fan, Masters managed to gain a three count on Chris Prime.  A tired ‘Bad Boy’ was then taken to the limit by Harry Pain but won through after Pain was disqualified after receiving three public warnings.  Kyle then entered the ring and choked out the exhausted Masters for a VERY tainted victory.  So, with one victory each, this match will be the decider as these two settle their differences in what is sure to be a heated match.

 Big Match Profiles –

Name – Lee Kyle

Hometown – Jarrow

Weight – 214lbs

Moves – Mamba Choke, Go Go Gadget Lee (Double Stomp to Head), Roaring Elbow

Titles Held – IWF Tag Team

            The Leader of the Lee Kyle Experience, Kyle is a frustrating competitor.  He is capable of hanging with the best of the IWF on his day but is also capable of losing to anybody when things are not going his way.  He does though, have a good record of beating people when he is fully focused and all reports suggest that he is 100% focused on beating Jed Masters.  Expect Kyle to use hard strikes and submission tactics as he attempts to defeat his nemesis.


Name – ‘Bad Boy’ Jed Masters

Hometown – Deckham, Gateshead

Weight – 222lbs

Moves – Masterclass (Reverse DDT/Elbow Drop), Masterpiece (Horsecollar)

Titles Held – None as yet

            D-Unit member Jed Masters has had an unusual IWF career.  For two years he was the head referee before handing in the stripes and dedicating himself to an in-ring career.  Within months of his debut, he was challenging for the IWF title.  Although he was unsuccessful, he is now regarded as one of the top wrestlers in the IWF and a top contender to any title.  Expect to see him use vicious chops and an array of power moves to wear down Lee Kyle before looking to end it with the Masterclass.


The other match already booked for the card is for the IWF Junior Academy Championship.  Junior Academy Champion and protégé of Assassin MAX HEAT will defend his title in a four-corners match against former champion ‘THE FRONT COVER’ RD WOOD, LITTLE DRAGON, the aerial specialist who went close to winning the title in Bedlington recently and the least convincing impressionist in wrestling BOOGIE KNIGHTS.


Also scheduled to appear are:


IWF Ring of Faith Champion WEAPON X*




‘The Man That Gravity Forgot’ PAC
