We’re in the ”United Kingdom” according to the graphic but I can confirm it’s the Manchester MEN Arena because I was at this show! Think it was my first live WWE show, naturally I went by myself because it was a wrestling show in 2008 and I nearly got into a fight with a bored dad who took exception to my vintage WCW shirt and got his son to call me a loser. He was right, but fuck him anyway.
Greetings grapple fans. Like a gold-ink Parker fountain with a Jim Hellwig inspired design, this is the penultimate episode of WOS Wrestling. Pushed back even earlier to 2:30pm, this week’s episode promises a unique match to decide the challenger for Rampage’s WOS Championship. I’m currently on a trip up the Scottish Highlands and accidentally caught the first three-quarters of this show whilst getting my lunch in a bar in Inverness. The lack of audio, and commentary provided by subtitles, was an interesting experience. I watched the rest and wrote up the review from the about-as-comfortable-as-you-can-hope-for-thirty-quid-a-night single hotel room for the next two nights.
Greetings grapple fans. As we reach the final episodes of this series of WOS Wrestling, ITV seem to really want to evoke that end-of-days feel by moving the show around in the time slots, as it’s a 4pm start this week.
UK Championship Special
Date: May 19, 2017
Location: Epic Studios, Norwich, England
Commentators: Jim Ross, Nigel McGuinness
This was a special two day event taped about two weeks ago as WWE continues their UK expansion. The idea here is to set up the UK Title match at Takeover: Chicago, which was announced before this show ever aired. The initial tournament shows were a lot of fun so hopefully this continues the trend. Let’s get to it.
