Thanks to IWF for sending the following in:
The IWF return to action in their NEW home venue in HEDWORTHFIELD COMMUNITY CENTRE, Fellgate, Jarrow (Next to Fellgate Metro).
Show date – 15th April 2006
Belltime – 7pm (Doors open 6:30)
Tickets cost £4 or £12 for a family of 4.
Two new matches have been announced:
IWF CHAMPIONSHIP YOUNGSTA v DM VALENTINE
When he returned to the company in February after two years out with a serious back injury, most expected DM VALENTINE to ease himself gently back into competition. This was not the case as he defeated Robbie Ryder in an explosive match. Obviously feeling fit and well, he has revealed that, as he never received a rematch after losing the IWF title back in 2003, he would use his rematch clause to challenge IWF Champion YOUNGSTA on April 15th. If (And it is a big if) Valentine is as ready as he thinks he is, history shows that he has a great chance of ending Youngsta’s reign as IWF Champion.
IWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP ‘BAD BOY’ JED MASTERS and SHAUN AVERY v CHRIS WHITTON and KID RICHIE
The main event of the final show in IWF’s former home in Gateshead saw jubilant scenes as the popular duo of Avery and Masters finally ended the lengthy IWF Tag Team Championship reign of Pac and Harry Pain. In this, their first title defence, they have proven that they will be fighting champions. Richie and Whitton first made a name for themselves as an exciting young tag team in 3CW and, although they rarely team together these days, it is not difficult to imagine the fast paced offence of these arrogant youngsters giving the popular D-Unit pairing all sorts of problems.
Already announced were the following two matches:
IWF RING OF FAITH CHAMPIONSHIP
LIAM ‘THE PLAYER’ ATKINSON v JOE LEGEND
On a recent show for another promoter, LIAM ‘THE PLAYER’ ATKINSON attacked then Ring of Faith Champion ‘Unbreakable’ Bobby Jackson after his match and claimed his title. Due to this being Jackson’s final match before joining the navy, he is unable to return to attempt to regain his crown. This situation has not sat easily with the IWF championship committee who have reacted by scheduling Atkinson’s first defence to be against the most difficult opponent possible. As a result, he will go up against JOE LEGEND. Atkinson has never faced a wrestler with the credentials of Legend and will have to perform at his very best to stand any chance of holding onto his belt.
BROTHER v BROTHER JORDAN WRIGHT v JOEY WRIGHT
Following the last IWF show in Gateshead, It became clear that the issue between JORDAN WRIGHT and his brother JOEY were far from over. At that show, Joey revealed that he had left their tag team ‘The Wright Stuff’ to form ‘Wright Stuff 2000’ with, of all people, ‘Old School’ Billy Morrison. Jordan went on to defeat his younger brother in a well received match, after which Joey went on to tell anyone who would listen that he would defeat Jordan easily should they step into the ring again. It looks like Joey will get his chance as he goes one-on-one with his brother on April 15th.
