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.
After Joe Hendry managed to win the WCPW Heavyweight Championship when they headed back to Edinburgh he decided to christian the event HendryMania.
You can only guess what the Prestige, three quarters of which are Scottish, get up to now they have the championship in their ranks.
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!
So yes I haven’t been right on top of the qualifiers but hopefully this one gets out in a good amount of time and I can then keep on top of things a lot better. Everything since Chain Reaction HAS been reviewed and to see the reviews which came out quietly as I got so very far behind on everything just go up to the wrestling tab at the top of the page and click on the new WCPW section.
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.
This is extremely late and I apologise for that as I have quite a lot over the last few weeks. PWA celebrated their 8th anniversary in April with a great show with appearances from T-Bone and the UK Hooligans.
