Mark Haskins and Robbie X meet in an All Kendo Sticks Are Legal Match, Stixx and Flips (“The Heavyweight House of Pain” Stixx and Chris Tyler) defend the Southside Tag Titles against Lucha Overground (Shane Strickland and Matt Cross), “The Bruiserweight” Pete Dunne faces former WWE Superstar Cody Rhodes and “The Righteous” Joseph Connors defends his Southside Heavyweight Championship against “The Mexican Sensation” El Ligero in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match.

Also on 29th, PBW presents Maximum Impact 2016 from Greenock Town Hall, with no matches announced at the time of writing, but the list of talent scheduled to appear includes Lucha DS, Lou King Sharp, Stevie Boy, Liam Thompson, Chris Ridgeway, Kenny Williams, The Hooligans (Roy and Zach Knight), Jack Jester, BT Gunn and Grado.
And finally, Pro Wrestling Chaos rounds out the forecast for this week with All Or Nothing at the Yate Leisure Centre in Bristol on 29th. In addition to the formidable talents of native grapplers Rampage Brown, Paul Robinson, Scotty Essex, Mike Bird, Wild Boar and Eddie Dennis, the card will feature former WWE Superstars Hardcore Holly and Adam Rose.
And rounding the forecast out this week we have PROGRESS – Chapter 38 “When Men Throw Men At Men” at the Camden Electric Ballroom. Only one match had been announced at the time of writing, pitching The Shirtlifters (Jack Sexsmith and “Bodyguard” Roy Johnson) against The South Pacific Power Trip (TK Cooper and Travis Banks), but the fans were being asked to vote on Facebook to decide the stipulation for this grudge match, with tables seeming to be the clear favourite in the poll.
