Welcome to the interactive UK Scene with things a little bit more settled after the 1PW debacle, we can concentrate on the local companies that bring British wrestling to the United Kingdom.

It appears that Luton may be the next area to suffer the phenomenon known as federation wars as UK Scene newcomer Peter Stanisforth becomes the victim of a prank email attack. Though I won’t divulge the contents of the prank mail, suffice to say that the author was not only insulting to Peter, but some of the wrestlers booked on the show.

Now promoters are one thing, they are the public front and commander of a wrestling federation and should expect criticism from people, especially the paying fans.

If the author is reading this then leave the talent out of your arguments with any promoter, keep your war clean if you insist on it. Always remember, in wrestling, whatever you say about someone always gets to them in the end.

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.

And Finally…

I was told that there was a BBC program the other week about the rise in popularity of British wrestling. Apparently more and more people are going out to see shows, which is a commendation for the hard work a lot of promoters and wrestlers put into their craft, yes, we are light years behind the Americans, however, it seems we’ve got to keep on plugging, the next generation of wrestlers are starting to come through and shine and let’s hope there will be a lot more coming out of the woodwork this year!

Don’t forget to interact with the UK Scene, I can still read your comments and questions and involve people in your thoughts through the UK Scene forum.

Take care.
