The Wrestling Forecast – 10th to 16th October 2016

Scotland’s Target Wrestling begin the proceedings this week, with back-to-back shows on Friday 14th at the Corner House Hotel in Annan and then on Saturday 15th in Carlisle at The Venue. “The Primate” Jason Prime is confirmed as appearing on both dates, with Martin Kirby joining him in Annan and self-proclaimed “International Sex Hero” DCT scheduled for Carlisle.

The Longfield Suite in Prestwich hosts Future Shock Underground #19 on 15th, where Violet Vendetta faces Jinny to determine the number one contender for the Future Shock Women’s Championship, Chuck Mambo meets James Drake in the quarter final of the Future Shock Trophy Tournament, Xander Cooper defends the Future Shock Adrenaline Title against Pastor William Eaver and The Models (Joey Hayes and Danny Hope) meet the team of Don Meacho and Ryan Hendricks. In the main event, reigning Future Shock Champion Zack Gibson puts his title on the line against CWC competitor Fabian Aichner.

Pro Evolution Wrestling take over Merchant’s Academy in Bristol also on the 15th, for a show which includes standouts Wild Boar, Mike Bird and The Hunter Brothers in tag team action.

And finally on 15th, the Devon Wrestling Association are at Petroc in Barnstaple for Tables, Ladders and Chairs, the main event of which sees former NXT competitor Joel Redman lock horns with Iestyn Rees in a Street Fight.

Sunday 16th sees PROGRESS return to the Manchester O2 Ritz for the first show post their barnstorming trip to the Brixton O2 Academy last month. At the time of writing, only two matches had been announced, but the first of these will be a massive Four Way Match for the position of number one contender to the PROGRESS World Championship, featuring one half of the company’s Tag Team Champions in the form of “The Bruiserweight” Pete Dunne, Atlas Tournament finalist “The Iron Man” Joe Coffey, Shane Strickland (a.k.a. Lucha Underground’s Killshot) who earned the right to contention by pinning Will Ospreay at Chapter 32 a few months back, and newly deposed former champion “The Villain” Marty Scurll. The man who stripped Scurll of the belt will also have his hands full as Mark Haskins begins his reign by defending the championship against the outstandingly talented and nefarious Zack Gibson.
