Review

The first Big Event for WAW took place on Saturday with two shows from Epic Studios in Norwich. Both had a superb mixture of young, veteran and international wrestlers. We did have a few minor issues during this whole day. Firstly we may of missed the announcement but where was Shannon Moore ? He was someone we were looking forward to meeting and seeing him perform for the first time Live but he was a no show. Also we attended the meet and greet at the WAW Shop, it was supposed to start at 10 am but we were left outside in the cold till nearly 11 am. The last thing was that we paid for seated tickets (bronze) for both shows and when we arrived for the second show we found that there were no seats available. Now whilst we have stood at many Wrestling shows and actually prefer to stand it is not good that people paid for something and WAW or Epic Studios could not give us what we paid for. We were not the only ones either there were at least 10 or more people in the same situation as us that didn’t have seats that they paid for. The first match was a good way to start the day I was very impressed with everyone in the match but the stand outs for me were Sabian and Dunne. I didn’t really enjoy the Judas and Bash Match but others did, just didn’t get that in to it. The Cowboy and Doug put together a very good match, I have said this before but RKJ and Alex Young are two very talented young wrestlers and should be booked by more of the Top Promotions in the U.K. I think both would be great fits for Progress Wrestling. Their match was fantastic I loved how they finished the match with the Lumberjacks not being able to contain the two and now they will settle it in a steel cage match.The Four Way Match was okay but I would of rather preferred to see Slayer in the Main Event than Davies. Slayer is a very talented performer and seriously underrated. The Hooligans return was fun. While they may not of win back the belts, I liked how they set up a match for later in the evening with KOSS Industries. I throughly enjoyed  the Bram vs Kendo Match, we have never been huge fans of Kendo this match proved to me that he is a very talented big man and I will admit when I am wrong and on this occasion I was. They put together a very entertaining match and I am now a Kendo fan. While I did enjoy the first show and every match was very entertaining, I thought that two thirds of the second show blew away everything that happened on the first show but the last third was the worst part of the whole day. I really liked how most matches in the first part of the second show was mainly young wrestlers getting taught a lesson by the veterans of the business. Slayer put on a tremendous performance against The Cowboy James Storm, Alex Young proved how good he is with a great showing against Doug Williams and Ricky Knight Junior showed more guts than brains as he was destroyed by Bram. Kip Sabian and Aaron Sharp had one hell of a match for the European title how both guys are not booked by more top promotions is a crime they are so talented. My personal favourite match was Jonny Storm vs Robbie E this had everything you could ask for as a Pro Wrestling fan. There was hilarious comedy spots, fantastic in ring action and a great finish to the match. I did enjoy the Tag Team  Street Fight as The UK Hooligans proved why they are still the best Tag Team in the U.K. but KOSS really put on an excellent performance and I hope too see more of this very talented Tag Team. This match was not as one sided as I thought it was going to be as KOSS did put up a good fight against Roy and Zak. The ending was entertaining but a bit of a cluster with Anthony Agogo making an appearance with half the crowd not really caring or even knowing who he is but it was cool seeing him hit a Rock Bottom and Frog Splash. The last 3 Matches didn’t compare to what had proceeded them. The Women’s Tag Match was not about the talent in the ring but the main focus was on the two women outside the ring. The tension between Vickie and Saraya was awesome and when they finally blew it took all four women to hold them back from each other. The World Title Match was boring plain and simple, I did say earlier I am a fan of Kendo but this British Rules Match with him facing an even Fatter Wrestler killed any momentum this show had. I would of much rather seen him go up against a smaller opponent I feel he always has much better matches against lighter opponents.  Then came a 30 Man Rumble that had a few of the wrestlers that performed on the shows and the rest was filled with their Trainees. It was a very basic Rumble and was a very anticlimactic way to end what was a decent show. Overall we did enjoy the day the highlights were meeting the very lovely Vickie Guerrero and Robbie E for the first time.

More Pictures and Video Clips from both shows are coming very soon.
