RBW Exeter Training This Saturday With Tex Benedict

Exeter, Devon Wrestling Training This Saturday!

The new RBW training centre in Exeter, Devon has now been open for four sessions, beginning on Saturday (8th January 2005). A great turn-out at all four sessions have seen some enjoyable sessions taken by Tex Benedict, Sammy Ray and Andy Boy Simmonz (on two occasions) respectively.

This week, training is on once again, with the first of those three trainers returning once again. This trainer is none other than Tex Benedict. The over-confident American star, Tex Benedict is claiming that 2005 will be his best year yet, and with him putting on great performances against all opponents, it’s quite possible that this will happen. Despite recently loosing in the British Heavyweight Championship Tournament to Johnny Kidd, Benedict has also set his sights on the British Welterweight Championship, currently held by “The Gift” Ross Jordan. Despite both wrestlers not being popular with fans, Benedict has a score to settle with Jordan following an attack last May by Jordan and his Southern Alliance team mates.

However, before Tex Benedict gets anywhere near Ross Jordan or the British Welterweight Championship, he has a big match against a wrestler making a return to RBW action. With rumours spreading over the identity of his opponent recently, no one suspected that it would be the international star Neil Faith who would be returning to RBW.

This bout takes place literally hours after the Exeter training session, with Benedict travelling all the way back, hundreds of miles, to Chingford, London to compete at the event.

Exeter is a busy university city and regional centre for the county of Devon, Exeter is a superbly sited city encompassing all the convenience of urban life within sight of some of Britain’s finest countryside. Exeter is starved of wrestling training and wrestling in general, with only a few wrestling shows taking place during the year.

The wilderness hills of Exmoor and Dartmoor are on the city’s doorstep, the English seaside ‘Riviera’ of Torbay a short drive away, and the sailing havens of the Exe and Dart rivers start just about at the city limits.

RBW training centres have already been launched in both Hampshire and London, as well as a previous one in Nottingham. Plans will see more centres opened throughout 2005 in other locations.
