Main Event Wrestling are first up this week, arriving at the Innisfree Sports & Social Club in Newcastle-upon-Tyne on the 14th for Toon Tussle II, where in singles competition, Little Miss Roxxi faces Gemini, HT Drake defends the Calling Spots Championship against Saxton Huxley and Aaron Echo in a triple threat match and the MEW Heavyweight Championship is also on the line, as Chris Renfrew defends against Liam Slater. Also on the card is the Toon Tussle match itself, featuring “The Primate” Jason Prime, BT Gunn, Adam Christ, Amir Jordan, Prince Ameen and former star of reality TV Adam Maxted.
Jumping to the 15th and London’s Resistance Gallery, Pro Wrestling EVE present a double-header with But First, Some Rebellion taking place in the afternoon and Dangerous Women following in the evening. On the afternoon show, the returning star of Japanese joshi wrestling, Emi Sakura takes on Projo graduate Jinny, and Sammi Jayne faces Leah Owens and Casey Owens in a triple threat match for her Pro Wrestling EVE Championship and “Queen of Session Style” Session Moth Martina meets “Queen of Strange Style” Amarah.
FutureShock Wrestling are back at the Stockport Masonic Guildhall on 16th for Uproar #95, which features the Lotto Thunder eight-man tournament made unique by the fact that, while the competitors (namely Sam Bailey, James Drake, Thomas Wolfe, Joey Hayes, Wolfgang, Damon Leigh, T-Bone and “Delicious” Danny Hope) have been chosen ahead of time, the actual matches which will take place on the night will be decided by none other than the fans in attendance, a fact that surely makes it worth going along simply to see what goes down in the ensuing bouts.
ATTACK! Pro Wrestling are also in action on 16th, with The Neon Wristlock at the Bristol Trinity Centre, and while the only match announced at the time of writing was Mike Bird and the Wild Boar against Bowl-A-Rama, CCK and the Anti-Fun Police have been confirmed as appearing in addition.
And finally, host of one of the most successful pro-wrestling podcasts around and a man who was at the heart of the WWF during the Attitude Era, Bruce Pritchard, kicks off his Something To Wrestle With tour in Birmingham at the Bierkeller Complex. A fountain of insider information on the wrestling industry, possessing a legendary collection of compelling and downright hilarious stories featuring the most iconic names in the business and able to add to that some of the most spot-on impressions of those same wrestlers and promoters, Pritchard’s show is something that no true connoisseur of wrestling can afford to miss out on.
