2017 UK DISCUSSION THREAD


Recommended Posts

I saw that earlier and wasn't sure where to mention it.  But it's interesting that for all the talk about fucked up shit in Hollywood (in the movies section) this happens.  The 19-year-old's account of what happened is especially distressing.  Fuck Adam and I hope he gets the punishment that's coming to him.

My lot in life seems to be to come into this thread and tell you of ridiculous dream matches that the UK scene throws up every other day. Why ruin that?

Pro-Wrestling EVE announced AJA KONG vs VIPER for May 5th next year...

(Oh, and Emi Sakura vs Meiko Satomura was a little bit good)

She was Viper's preferred punching bag in WCPW.  If anything, she will sell like a million dollars and is not shy about taking bumps that she probably shouldn't if she plans on not being in a wheelchair by her 30th birthday.

He's just a random dude in a singlet that is apparently batshit crazy, from what I've seen.

Screwface is UK slang for someone with a mean face/scowl. That's a pretty cool wrestling nickname actually.

First time I came across the term was the verse on this at 1.50:

I have only heard Jamaicans use that slang but yea, screwface = scowl.

Fight Club: PRO have finalised the field for Friday's Infinity tournament: Omari, Dan Moloney, Jordan Devlin, Kay Lee Ray, Mark Davis, Kyle Fletcher, Millie McKenzie & last year's winner Travis Banks.

Four singles matches lead into a four-way final, a reverse of how they usually do it. Banks beat Trent Secen last year and then went into beat Pete Dunne for the title in the culmination of a year-long storyline.

This year the rise of Omari and the stuttering progress of Dan Moloney are the stories, and the champion is Chris Brookes.

The really fun thing to note is that just 12 months ago, that would be a really underwhelming line up with a lot of unknown names, and now that reads like a real all star show. The speed that people like Aussie Open, Devlin, Omari and Millie have been able to make a name for themselves this year is testament to how healthy the scene is.

Catching up on Progress. Chapter 56 was fun, if inessential. British Strong Style going full babyface was fun and their match with Sexy Starr was a good comedy match (complete with Sexsmith and Starr continually snapping and going for the armbar). 

Banks vs Lee was solid, obviously, but not either guy's best.

Matt Sydal missed his flight to Europe this weekend because of "traffic", and now he won't return the $1200 deposit he was paid because he doesn't have it. Scottish promotions are going out of their way to say he won't be booked there anytime soon.

"Dude, it was an act of God. You got to sell tickets off my name!"

The more I see of Sydal, the more I don't think he's good people. He's also bland as fuck and now that there 100 guys that can do flippy shit he does just as well or better, he's pretty irrelevant.

I did, man. I did and that's like the least annoying I've seen him. I was thinking more of him shitting all over Naylor. He had a point about Naylor dominating the conversation and overblowing his role in FCW but he was such a prick about it the entire time.
