2017 UK DISCUSSION THREAD

Recommended Posts

The guy wrecked a Japan gig people would kill for by bringing pot into the country so this isn't surprising in the least. The guy is a total moron.

Finished Chapter 57 of Progress. 

Ya know - Banks isn't lighting me on fire with his run. I loved the  SPPT team, but his single matches tend to revolve around him doing the Superman act at some point. Not a BAD match with Mandrews but a little flat. 

British Strong Style as babyfaces continue to be an utter delight. Seven mocking Gibson for being the only person without a WWE contract was some great stuff. Fun garbage brawl after, even with a flat finish. 

Keith against Webster was a great big/little match. Keith Lee is one of the best big men in the world.

I'm probably in the minority, but I had grown tired of Banks run prior to the title switch.  I'm not sure who else there was to take the title off Dunne though...

Just getting back into wrestling again after a year or so out... watching NJPW highlights, NXT and Progress are all good stuff but is it me or is Dunne about the most entertaining guy around at the moment?

He's up there, man. So talented and such a good heel. Others for me are Omega, Okada, WALTER, and Keith Lee. Rusev too but his matches aren't anything special the past year from what I've seen.

Yeah I'd agree with that so far Omega & Okada (outside of AJ) seem different level, not seen much of Walter but watching Keith Lee tonight seems really good, helps I watched hi match with Ricochet

Check out the matches with Donovan Dijak for a real treat. The second EVOLVE match wasn't great because they tried to do too much of the same from the first one from Mania weekend. The AAW match was great but I think crossed the overkill line a little early. Then they tag with each other against CHOSEN BROS (Riddle & Cobb, another of the two better guys in the US imo) at BOLA weekend before putting on a masterclass in the tournament.

WALTER has a lot of great matches but from what I've seen he's at his best against Dragunov and David Starr. He's had some really fun battles with Riddle too. The Lee match from BOLA disappointed me but was still good.

Ok cool I'll look out for those, liked Cobb from the tag league stuff and have heard good things about Dijak. Just watching Riddle v Scurll and is it me or is Scurll over rated?

29 is super young to lose a parent. Agreed with Halfaloaf and am wishing Grado the best.

A member of the WWE main roster is set to wrestle for PCW (Preston City Wrestling) in February.

PCW announced today that Apollo Crews would be taking part in their Road to Glory 2018 tournament on February 10th. PCW noted that Crews is returning for one night only and thanked WWE, Triple H, and William Regal for allowing him to do so.

When he was still known as Uhaa Nation before heading to WWE, Crews held the PCW Heavyweight Championship from November 2014 to March 2015. He joins Zack Sabre Jr. as the first two wrestlers who have been confirmed for the tournament.

A few WWE wrestlers have appeared for UK promotions this year as WWE continues to develop working relationships overseas. Kassius Ohno and Noam Dar have appeared for ICW, while Jack Gallagher and Dakota Kai were featured on PROGRESS Wrestling's two shows in the United States this summer.

That should be great. And the nice thing about Rev Pro is that it won't be even close to the only potentially great match on paper either. They usually do a good job of stacking their cards with at least 3 or 4 very good matches.

Just finished Progress Chapter 59.  Pretty entertaining, considering the last minute changes due to weather.  I would like to see Banks lose title sooner rather than later.  Such a big step down from Dunne.  Just hate the Kiwi Terminator gimmick.

A bit late to this one, I was reading this thread in the gym back in muh endz (West London) as I'm here for Christmas. I went home and my Mother also told me that Grado's mother had died. My Mother is a Glasgow native so reads some of the news local to that area, though this slightly left-field birthday present from my brother a couple of years back also helped:

(I'll get the frame glass replaced - Wilko quality eh!)

Point is, Grado's Maw got to see her son become a local legend; something to indeed be proud of. Hope The Lost Scot is bearing up.

My advice would be to hit up a couple alone. I started going to the AAW Lasalle shows by myself in March and have made some solid buddies that I now sit with every show. Just take the plunge, it'll be good, I promise.

Which ones? I'm a regular at Fight Club: PRO and ATTACK!, but almost the whole scene is massively friendly.

EVE put up one of the shows from their SHE-1 tournament for free on YouTube (for a limited time, apparently), and it's really damn fun. Great arena brawl from KLR & Charli Morgan, the main is kinda short but does all the good stuff you might want from a Meiko/Viper match, and really the whole card is at least good. Highly recommended way to spend ninety minutes and a really great commercial for the company:

wXw better hope so.  That's about the only reason I expect Riddle to actually show up, instead of double-booking that weekend and canceling.

That's very nice I am sure, but didn't Progress used to have storylines? 

I mean, I can see the slow rise of Sexsmith continues, alongside the rebuild of Rampage and the eventual Webster turn, but from afar it doesn't look like it's all that exciting really. Am I wrong?
