The Wrestling Forecast – 31st July to 6th August 2016

After a short and typically chaotic tour of English cities, ICW returns to Glasgow’s O2 ABC for the final date of the Shug’s Hoose Party weekender on Sunday 31st August, where DCT faces Bram in a steel cage, The Legion of Mikey Whiplash, Tommy End, and Michael Dante meet Moustache Mountain (Tyler Bate & Trent Seven) and Lewis Girvan, Lionheart will defend the Zero-G title against Kenny Williams, the big men collide as Joe Coffey challenges Big Damo for the ICW World Heavyweight championship and Team Dallas faces The Black Label with control of the company at stake as victory for the former will hand 50% ownership of ICW to Mark Dallas, but a win for the latter will see the company founder banished forever.

Camden’s Electric Ballroom plays host to PROGRESS – Chapter 33: Malice in Wonderland earlier the same day, with Mark Andrews taking on El Ligero, Moustache Mountain tangling with The Dunne Brothers, Jack Gallagher clashing with Zack Gibson, Tag Champions The London Riots defending against ROH alumni War Machine, new PROGRESS Heavyweight Champion Pastor William Eaver facing a rematch with former champion “The Villain” Marty Scurll, and the return of another former champion in the shape of Will Ospreay, fresh off of making history as the first Englishman to win NJPW’s prestigious Best of Super Junior tournament, here going up against fellow native grappler with experience of the orient, Mark Haskins.

Monday, August 1st sees former ECW, AJPW, WWE & TNA superstar Rob Van Dam sit down with a roomful of lucky fans for Mr. Monday Night, an evening of wrestling road stories, conversation and questions, which will take place at the Headingley Carnegie Stadium in Leeds.

Skipping forward to Saturday 6th August, PCW make Preston’s Evoque nightclub the venue for What a Time to be a Five, celebrating the promotion’s fifth anniversary, with no matches announced at press time, but promotional material featuring Viper, Lionheart, El Ligero, Joey Hayes, Martin Kirby, The London Riots, Noam Dar, Dave Mastiff and current PCW Heavyweight Champion Sha Samuels, expect a card featuring most of these names and maybe a few more surprises thrown in for good measure.
