The Wrestling Forecast – 5th to 11th September 2016

Triple M Promotions bring ‘Big Daddy Cool’ Kevin Nash to the UK for four dates on the ‘Big Sexy Tour – 2016’, taking in Edinburgh’s Tynecastle Stadium on Wednesday 7th September, Federation Breweries in Newcastle on Thursday 8th, The Billy Bremner Suite at Elland Road Stadium in Leeds on Friday 9th and finally Leicester Hermitage Leisure Centre on Saturday 10th. The evening will feature a Q&A style sit-down interview with the former WWF & WCW Champion and founding member of the NOW, conducted by ‘The Voice of British Wrestling’ Robert Maltman. Standard tickets grant entrance to the Q&A session, while ‘Gold’ tickets also grant the holder a signed photograph with Nash and autograph on one piece of memorabilia.

Straddling two nights, 4FW present ‘Battle Britannia 2016’ firstly from the Portishead Summer Hall on 9th September and from there the action moves to Emerson Green Village Hall in Bristol on 10th. Matches announced include ‘The Bruiserweight’ Pete Dunne meeting star of AJPW and Pro Wrestling Noah, Kotaro Suzuki, Mark Haskins against Tiger Ali, Wrestle-1 standout Kazma Sakamoto facing Mega Pegasus and Chardonnay and Nadia Sapphire take on the team of Pollyanna and Aurora Skye in a women’s tag match.

Hull City Hall plays host to NGW and their show ‘Regeneration X’ on 10th, where ‘The Righteous’ Joseph Conners meets ‘The Mexican Sensation’ El Ligero in a singles match and Martin Kirby takes on Robbie X in a ladder match. But the star attraction of the night will surely be the match for the NGW Undisputed Championship, which sees current title-holder ‘The Showstealer’ Nathan Cruz defend the belts against a true British veteran in the form of ‘The Anarchist’ Doug Williams. The show will also feature a special guest appearance from daytime quiz-show personality ‘The Beast’ Mark Labbett from ‘The Chaser’, though his exact role was not specified at the time of writing.

Sunday 11th has PROGRESS once again showcasing the best and brightest of the prospects from their Projo academy at the Highbury Garage at ‘ENDVR #18’, an excellent chance to see the names which could become the next breakout talents on the British wrestling scene before anyone else does.

And finally, the 11th also sees ICW return to the Glasgow Garage for one of their regular monthly ‘Fight Club’ shows, which are recorded for streaming on their on-demand service, and so present the perfect opportunity to get your ugly mug on TV alongside those of the ICW regulars.
