Will Ospreay

Having recently completed one of the best years in the company's relatively short history, What Culture Pro Wrestling appears to be breaking fresh ground again. With a number of notable personalities havibg departed the company is going to redefine itself. So, on December 4th, WCPW will become "Defiant Wrestling".
What Culture Pro Wrestling (WCPW) have made their biggest announcement to date. As they put it, following the path of the
If you missed Ring of Honor's UK tour, you missed out. The Young Bucks and the Briscoe's wrestled what was possibly, the best match we've ever seen...
Juventud Guerrera is one of the most iconic, decorated, well-respected and impressive luchadores of all time. Having gained
Over the course of nearly 4 hours, wXw put on some top quality entertainment. The atmosphere, the production value, the card, the talent and so much more had been carefully and thoughtfully weaved together to make for a great night. 16 Carat is named Europe's biggest and most famous wrestling tournament. Perhaps it ought to be called its greatest. Make sure you get there next year to see what all the fuss is about.
If you've been to a wrestling show recently, chances are you've seen a fast-moving, bespectacled, fan-beloved and yet understated photo wizard at ringside shooting the talent. This man is Oli Sandler AKA The Ringside Perspective and he is the go-to guy for many key UK wrestling promotion's photography needs.
They came, they saw and they tore the house down. Last week, TNA wowed a big London crowd as they hit the UK for their annual 'Maximum Impact' tour.
They've only gone and done it. As Dixie Carter announced on Impact which airs in the UK on Challenge TV, TNA have booked three of the UK's finest talent for their forthcoming Maximum Impact Tour...
Speaking exclusively to Royal Ramblings, Will was threatening to be so dangerous, the authorities would need to be involved
Let us know your thoughts - and don't forget to get your tickets for the tour! Details below.. 4) Big Damo & Nikki Storm
In an effort to find out more about Southside, we talked with founder and promotor Ben Auld who with typical humility outlined how the company had developed from a fledgling promotion to one of the top UK wrestling businesses in the country...
In one of our first reviews of an independent show, we wrote that Will Ospreay "is a ball of pure energy whose reputation clearly precedes him, given the crowd were chanting his name within ten seconds of his entrance"...
As regular readers will know, the Royal Ramblings team went 'on tour' at the beginning of this year, looking out some of the best independent promotions the UK had to offer. The business that we kept coming back to, that kept receiving warm praise and whose management team, as Drew Galloway put it "knows how to have a good time" is IPW: UK.
For those that have followed the story of Progress, you will know that Jimmy Havoc, the plucky underdog turned evil king, has been the champion basically forever.
Southside put simply, deliver a brilliant, well-booked show with awesome talents. We got more than our money's worth and were so impressed we've booked to go again.
Rocky Romero is a world-renowned and universally respected wrestling veteran. Having worked in his near twenty year career across Japan, Mexico and the US, he has recently been in the UK, stamping his authority all over the independent scene...
Romero was magnificent, his stiff kicks prompting full-throated 'Rocky' chants. An intelligent wrestler, he wove a good story with Bodom, including plenty of pops and notably Romero clinging spider like to the ropes to avoid offences from his opponent.
IPW puts on high quality events and generate a positive atmosphere. There is no question that it was worth the drive, the investment of time and money. Sabre Junior and Scurll spoke to the crowd before they exited the ring, with the former saying the UK scene is hot at the moment. Judging by IPW's standards, it's on fire.
The first female on our list and one of the premiere talents on the scene, Kay Lee was put through the initial stages of British Boot Camp for good reason. A veteran of the ring, Ray cut her teeth in ICW but has global experience.
The birth of IPW:UK and its subsequent growth and success is a compelling story, one which promoter and IPW founder Daniel Edler recounted for us. Having worked for wrestling news sites making "a decent living for a 15 year old at the time", Daniel decided to volunteer to help out acquaintances that were running wrestling shows...
