Just over a year ago, well last year in January, I went to Wellsprings in Taunton to see Kenny Omega fight Ultimo Tiger. This time I went to Wellsprings to see fellow Bullet Club member and absolute legend Cody Rhodes. To say this venue is becoming a very important one in my life is a understatement. This time out I was going to see UPW for the very first time too.
So in their third event in two weeks Pride returned to my hometown of Plymouth with their heavyweight champion Bram and James Storm ready to face each other for the title.
Another great evening for all involved was about to be had.
We had a night in Falmouth the night before which was much fun but it was the big anniversary show in Exeter that I was truly looking forward to. With Impact superstars Bram, Rockstar Spud and Low-Ki all making appearances and all the top names for Pride appearing we were certainly in for a treat!
I wasn’t planning on going to this event but as it was a Saturday and you can get back to Plymouth from Falmouth on a Saturday we did venture down to see the show. A much smaller show for Pro Wrestling Pride but which boasted a re-match for the Pride title when Bram returned to take on Ultimo Tiger.
Probably the wrestling show I go on about the most, I go see them at every opportunity though for a little while at the beginning of the year those opportunities might be slimmer then they have been recently. A great promotion ran by some very decent people who have big plans for 2017 and have already given fans over the Christmas period new merchandise and a OnDemand service.

Our final outing to Pro Wrestling Pride in 2016, sad times especially as their next event is free its just impossible to get to, and it was one hell of a way to finish the year. It also had the re-match everyone wanted to see…. Or just me and Nass really wanted to see… Bram vs Tiger 2. This time for the Heavyweight belt.
EDIT : This took a long time as I’ve been working and a bit ill, if there are any random bits that make no sense I apologise I just got tired of re-drafting because I’m extremely ill.
I know this ended up being really late but I did go to the last Pride show in Taunton with the absolute legend that is Scott Hall. Whilst the review is completely irrelevant right now it was a wonderful show so I’m still going to share the review no matter how late it is.
