Welcome to the interactive UK Scene with me, your ever lovable Saz, yet another quiet week for updates.

I’ve been quite busy myself working with other promotions but now it is time to think of working for the latter half of the year and with the summer camps in full swing a lot of wrestlers will be learning their trade.

Also means that I have to win round a lot of new fans with my evil ways, will I do it? I hope so, same probably goes for any new wrestler in a promotion.

What we do care about in all aspects of the UK Scene is your opinion, especially the paying punter, so if you have a say you are more than welcome to express it, whether it is a popular opinion or not – UK Scene Forum.

And Finally…

I’ve recently realised that there are two real type of fans in the UK Scene, now, I know a lot will think this obvious, but I sometimes wonder about the credibility of some so-called fans, now your paying punter can say what the hell they like, they paid their money, sat down and watched a show and made their opinion, valid comments, but why do people feel they can comment about a federation or a wrestler through second hand information?

Surely it is better to make up your own mind than listen to what someone else says about it?

Take care.
