Over last few months the management of Nu-Wrestling Evolution (NWE) and International Pro Wrestling United Kingdom (IPW:UK) have held countless meetings with one goal in mind: to put together an event which showcases the very best European talent alongside American Superstars whom many fans will not have had the chance to see perform live before
This partnership really is a dream match as NWE will be bringing their years of experience in promoting major league events, with huge stars and spectacular production and combining this with IPW:UK’s knowledge of the UK scene and drive to deliver the best pro wrestling ever seen on these shores. Making Saturday 28th April a date that you don’t want to forget!
So mark the date down in your diaries as April 28th the Troxy will witness the beginning of a revolution, the 2012: REVOLUTION!
The event will take place in the nation’s capital London at the marvellous Troxy, a prestigious venue that has played host to countless MMA & Boxing matches over the years.
Based in East London, this is the perfect setting for a wrestling show and one which IPW:UK has wanted to run for a long time now, but until now it hadn’t been possible. With NWE’s help it is and it will now play host to our biggest show to date 2012:REVOLUTION.
We can confirm that the card will be put together by IPW:UK, an organisation who have a reputation for delivering the most exciting wrestling action seen anywhere on these shores, whilst NWE will be providing their expansive resources including production values that rival the biggest wrestling promotions in the world. We firmly believe that combined we will create the most exciting show seen on UK shores in many years.
With the conclusion of No Escape we now know that on Saturday April 28th the man who will be facing ‘Party’ Marty Scurll for the Undisputed British Heavyweight Championship will be ‘The Callahan Death Machine’ Sami Callihan.
Callihan who is on the roll of his life was victorious in two show stealing outings first defeating Noam Dar and finally in the main event of the evening besting the man many picked as the tournament favourite Zack Sabre Jr. if there was anyone who doubted Callihan’s credentials going into No Escape there certainly isn’t anymore as he proved himself to be on his day a world beater.
But will Saturday April 28th be his day or will it be the day of a man whom was also victorious last Sunday in a hard fought contest over TNA star Doug Williams: ‘Party’ Marty Scurll?
There is so much to be said about this match up and we are sure it will be said over coming weeks as the whole wrestling is buzzing at the prospect of two athletes who are at the top of their game colliding on the grandest stage.
Also confirmed this past Sunday was the fact that ‘The Human Hate Machine’ Dave Mastiff, after months of frustration playing the numbers game against British Heavyweight Champion Sha Samuels & his running buddies The Rockstar Spud & T-Bone will have his chance at redemption on a level playing field as following his defeat to Sha Samuels after a plethora of outside interference Mastiff laid down the gauntlet for a 6 Man Tag Team war on Saturday April 28th.
IPW matchmakers have confirmed that there will be Brawl At The Hall rules in operation which means it will be an elimination tag team contest with NO DISQUALIFICATIONS!
Who Mastiff chooses as his partners remains to be seen, but one thing’s for sure the way Samuels, T-Bone & The Rockstar have conducted themselves in the locker room over the past 12 months means they have no shortage of enemies meaning that whomever Mastiff selects this one's going to be explosive!
As was announced exclusively in Fighting Spirit Magazine, Revolution will be kick started by a high stakes ladder match with everything to play for! Up for grabs for the victor is any match of his choosing in an IPW:UK or NWE ring anytime in the next 12 months. This fact alone combined with the fact that this match will take place on one of the single most important shows in modern day British wrestling history all but guarantees that this one will be all kinds of exciting!
There is a full in depth analysis of each of the competitors to come but here is a list of those confirmed to be involved in the contest:
‘M-Dogg 20’ Matt Cross:
The spectacular high flyer from Cleveland Ohio, this will be Cross’ first European appearance since he was featured on last year’s WWE Tough Enough. Known for his innovative offence and his freakish athletic ability there is nothing that this young man isn’t capable of.
The masked luchadore from Mexico City, Mexico. Described by NWE management as ‘the jewel in their crown’ and for good reason. Supernova is a risk taker who doesn’t know the meaning of the word fear. He has wowed crowds around the globe and now can’t wait to do the same in front of the UK fans. Defying gravity at every opportunity Supernova is the true definition of what this contest is all about!
A member of the Project Ego tag team, but equally renowned for his singles work. Travis is a competitor who has an extremely high opinion of himself and his capabilities within the ring. Saturday April 28th will be his opportunity to prove to the world that he can hang with elite calibre competition. But will he be thinking about his own personal gain or the future of The Project Ego tag team?
The Lion Kid:
Roaring his way in to competition. The Lion Kid is a young competitor who has come into his own as of late. A standout on Dragongate UK and IPW:UK shows the Kid came within a hairs length of scoring a huge upset capturing the British Heavyweight Championship at IPW’s 7 Year Anniversary Show. Victory here could allow him another opportunity to make that dream a reality. You can bet that come Saturday April 28th his ‘pride’ will be out in full force as they will him on to victory.
Also a member of the Project Ego, Kirby has had several high profile singles contests as of late against the likes of Nigel McGuinness and Finlay. There is a reason so much faith has been put into him by promoters around the country and that is that on his day he can mix it up with the best in the world. On Saturday April 28th he will be doing just that, so he better hope it’s his day!
Scotland’s Noam Dar is writing headlines wherever he has gone and has quite simply been a revelation since first stepping into an IPW:UK ring at the 7 Year Anniversary Show. Dar is a personification of everything IPW:UK stands for ‘pro wrestling at its best’ and Saturday April 28th will be just another opportunity for him to once more write all the headlines.
With the sheer level of talent involved and their drive and ambition to steal the show you can be expecting moments that will live on forever in the minds of everyone in attendance. This could well be one of those matches they are talking about for years to come!
Therefore the card currently looks as follows:
Undisputed British Cruiserweight Championship:
‘Party’ Marty Scurll vs. ‘The Callihan Death Machine’ Sami Callihan
6 Man No DQ Tag Team Elimination Grudge Match:
The Rockstar Spud, T-Bone & Sha Samuels vs. Dave Mastiff, ??? & ???
