PCW make a strong statement towards being crowned as the proverbial six hundred pound gorillas of Britwres this week, clocking in two shows in the space of forty-eight hours, the first at Liverpool’s Domain nightclub on Friday 9th and then Fiction in Hanley, Stoke-On-Trent on Saturday 10th. No details of matches had been released at the time of writing, but regular PCW talent featured on the advertising for the two events includes Ashton Smith, Rampage Brown, T-Bone, PCW Cruiserweight Champion Bubblegum and current World Heavyweight Champion Iestyn Rees. The massive buzz will also be around the imports, with TNA and NXT superstar “Cowboy” James Storm rubbing shoulders with former WWE superstar now formerly known as Ryback.
The Longfield Suite in Prestwich plays host to Futureshock Underground #20 on 10th, with the semi-finals of the 2016 Futureshock Wrestling trophy pitting Ashton Smith against “The Toxic Terror” Cyanide and Sexy Kev against James Drake, with the winners of their respective matches going on to face one another in the main event to decide the final. Elsewhere on the card, Wonderland (Henry T Grodd & Noah) defend the Futureshock Tag Team titles against The Models (Danny Hope and Joey Hayes), Soner Dursun challenges Xander Cooper for the Futureshock Adrenaline Championship, Alexis Rose, April Davids and Violet Vendetta meet in a Triple Threat Match to determine the number one contender to Lana Austin’s Futureshock Women’s Championship and Jenson Blake and James MacGregor team against “Deadly” Damon Leigh and Mark Massa.
Also on 10th, BWE brings professional wrestling to Smashcon 2016 at The Edge, Leeds University. The show card is scheduled to include appearances from “The Mexican Sensation” El Ligero, “The Primate” Jason Prime, Prince Ameen, Sexy Kev, Martin Kirby, Little Miss Roxxie, JG Nash and JD Boom.
Absolute Wrestling are at Northumbria University’s Stage 2 in Newcastle on 11th for Pride of the North, with “Liverpool’s No.1” Zach Gibson, Martin Kirby, Little Miss Roxxie and Liam Lazarus all scheduled to make an appearance.
And finally, PROGRESS make their Sheffield debut on 11th at the O2 Academy with Chapter 40: Interrupted Angel, an event which was transferred from their more familiar Manchester venue because a double-booking by the O2 chain. Not letting the change of venue take the wind out of their sales, PROGRESS have already announced that Rampage Brown will continue his open challenge in defence of the Atlas Championship (i.e. will face a mystery opponent) and Australian Nicki Storm will take on New Zealander Bea Priestly in a first round match of the Women’s Title Tournament. But surely the star attraction will be “The Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay taking on ROH superstar Adam Cole in what promises to be an epic encounter.
