Not wasting any time in getting their name out there despite being one of the newest kids on the block in Britwres, Lucha Forever arrive at The 1865 in Southampton on 18th, with Lucha Live #2 – Bark Twice if you’re in Southampton. Standout matches announced at the time of writing included Lucha Underground and AAA superstar Angelico meeting rising British talent Kip Sabian and the British Strong Style tandem of “The Bruiserweight” Pete Dunne and WWE UK Champion Tyler Bate (with Trent Seven at ringside) vs the CCK team of Chris Brookes and “The Kiwi Buzzsaw” Travis Banks (with Mondai Lycos in their corner).

Pro Wrestling EVE put on back to back shows at the Resistance Gallery in London on the 20th and 21st to deliver a massive dose of women’s wrestling and Japanese Joshi action in the form of Babes With The Power. This event takes the form of a tournament, with the quarter final brackets already announced pitting Sammi Jayne against Emi Sakura, Charlie Morgan against Kay Lee Ray, Laura Di Matteo against Kris Wolf, Alex Windsor against Rhio and Portugal’s Shanna against the unconventional Irishwoman known as “Session Moth” Martina, in what promises to be a truly international festival of female wrestling.
