Последните седмици съм изцяло на вълна английски кечец. Изчетах доста неща и изгледах малко клипове/тв шоута. Бях поизостанал с материала, но да, английската кеч сцена още има неща, които си рулират. От изчетените неща долуспоменатите три шоута ми се сториха доста любопитни и реших, че ще е интересно да ги споделя в този форум. Разбира се, има и други интересни шоута oт други федерации, но там вероятно 95% (и нагоре) от имената няма да ви говорят нищо, така че няма смисъл да ги пускам. Предполагам ще трябва да обясня няколко неща. На първо място, в момента в Англия има може би повече кеч федерации отвсякога, но като цяло най-важните играчи са RQW, LDN Wrestling, 1PW, XWA, WAW, IPW:UK, Premier Promotions & въпросната All Star Wrestling (възможно е да изпуснах някоя федерация). Уникалното на All Star Wrestling е, че федерацията е изцяло family entertainment стил федерация, т.е. по old school стил oт повечето indy федерации, без големи "sports entertainment" изгъзици, ясно откроени heel-ове и babyface-ове, доста crowd interaction, добър кеч и значителна част деца/семейства в публиката. С две думи: ако просто искаш да отидеш на забавно кеч шоу, където да си направиш кефа да викаш за добрите, да освиркваш лошите и да се наслаждаваш на кеч на стабилно ниво, то ASW е мястото за теб. Тук всичко опира до good 'ol professional wrestling. Лошото за фенове като нас е, че ASW не записват шоутата си и единственият начин да ги видиш е на живо или благодарение на fan cam. По принцип федерацията провежда по минимум 9-10 шоута на месец, което надявам се сами се досещате е доста за indy федерация. Eто през февруари например All Star ще имат цели 22 шоута, което е просто феноменално за indy федерация, даже не съм сигурен дали WWE ще имат толкова много шоута този месец. Абе All Star rules! И така, ето въпросните резултати от трите шоута:

All Star Wrestling

Cliffs Pavilion

Southend

January 29th 2008

Crowd: 1,500

Julio Torres beat Frankie Sloane

The Metal Master beat Robbie Dynamite

Broady Steele beat Doug Williams

Gangrel beat James Mason

Mikey Whiplash, Kid Cool, Dean 2 Xtreme & Frankie Sloane beat Quebecer Pierre, Rene Dupree, Bryan Danielson & Chad Collyer in an elimination match

Awesome show. Amazing crowd. Best show I've seen this year by far, and best show I've seen in a few months

.

1500 души публика за indy шоу през седмицата (а не през уикенда) и то в ден, когато май е имало голям футболен мач в града си е феноменален успех. Heel отбора от главния мач звучи страf'nхотно! Broady Steele е единият от продуцентите на кеч риалити тв шоуто Wrestling Reality (btw, някой в този форум запознат ли е с WR?) и също марк-вам, че се бие в All Star. Като добавим и Doug Williams, Gangrel, James Mason и шоуто направо е must-see за мен лично, но уви - няма как да се види и ще си останем само с четенето.

All Star Wrestling = British Wrestling at its very BEST!

Company: All Star Wrestling

Date: Friday 1st February 2008

Time: 7:30pm

Attendance: 600 (Sell-Out)

Price: Ј12

Location: Oakengates Theatre, Telford, England.

Karl Kramer vs. Zulu Prince

The fans chant ”Zulu, Zulu” as the contest begins. Lock up with Kramer getting the better of it (pushing Prince back into the corner and slapping him), Prince is incensed and chases after Kramer with his fist but at the last second refrains from punching. ”Fatty, Fatty” chants directed at Kramer. A second lock up takes place this time Prince pushes Kramer into the corner and breaks cleanly (Kramer uses this to push Prince) who once again chases Kramer with his fist closed ready to strike, but just like the first occasion he refrains at the last possible second. Kramer picks up his first public warning for a closed fist shot to Prince, Kramer then locks in the sleeper as the ref checks the arm. Prince gets a surge of adrenaline and fights back with clotheslines and a shoulder barge for a two count, Prince finally slams Kramer for another two count. Prince continues the offence with a bulldog and clothesline but gets caught with a boot and a vicious slam by Kramer who finishes the match via a top rope splash.

Match Time: 14 minutes

Winner: Karl Kramer

My Thoughts:

Good long opening match allowing a story to be told. Kramer’s power vs. Prince’s speed and quickness, Kramer’s power allowed him to control long parts of the match but Prince’s speed and quickness meant at any point out of nowhere he could win the match. Fans were fully behind ASW newcomer Zulu Prince and almost led him to victory but on this night Kramer’s power was just too much.

USA vs. England

Bryan Danielson vs. Phil Powers

Handshake is shared by both competitors as the match starts. Lock up with Danielson arm-dragging Powers, the fans respond to Danielson’s ”USA, USA” chant with an ”England, England” chant. Danielson continues the attack with hip-tosses and a slam. Powers fights back with hip-tosses and dropkicks of his own leaving Danielson heading for higher ground. ”England, England” chant starts up once more, Danielson offers Powers handshake (with crossed fingers that the audience can see) Powers falls for it and pays with a kick and an uppercut by Danielson flooring him. Danielson comes off the second rope with a knee drop and quickly applies the Canadian Mapleleaf as the fans chant ”England, England” once again. Powers kicks Danielson off and nails a slam driver for a two count, Powers quickly follows up with a swinging neck breaker but Danielson crotches him as he attempts a high risk move. Powers regains his composure and pushes Danielson off, but misses with the subsequent missile dropkick attempt. Danielson uses his ring smarts and rolls Powers up in a schoolboy pin and with his feet on the ropes picks up the three count.

Match Time: 14 minutes

Winner: Bryan Danielson

USA 1-0 England

My Thoughts:

One of my reasons to attend this show was to see Bryan Danielson in action and he did not disappoint. He and Powers produced a good technical wrestling match,. Danielson started off as a sportsman (via the handshake) but when things weren’t going his way he became sneakier and more of a rule breaker (even picking up a public warning). Powers was resilient in fending off Danielson’s expert picking apart of his leg, Danielson’s change in approach actually worked (wrongly or rightly) when he picked up the pinfall victory.

USA vs. England

Gangrel vs. Doug Williams

”Doug, Doug” chant starts up causing Gangrel to start jawing with the crowd, who respond with a ”Who are ya?, Who are ya?” chant. Lock up which Gangrel gets the best of pushing Williams back into the corner. Gangrel misses with follow up forearms allowing Williams to hip-toss and dropkick Gangrel until he hastily leaves the ring. Williams continues the attack with a basement dropkick and then forcefully brings Gangrel back into the ring. Gangrel applies the sleeper with his feet on the ropes (unbeknownst to the referee), Williams manages to fight out and returns with a European uppercut. Gangrel blocks Williams’s punches and replies with a back elbow, but the follow up roll up pin only gets a two count. Williams fights back once more with his high knee strikes and an uppercut for a two count of his own, a back drop follows but as Williams attempts a sunset flip Gangrel grabs hold of the ropes and picks up the win.

Match Time: 13 minutes

Winner: Gangrel

USA 2-0 England

My Thoughts:

Good match. Williams was a surprise announcement for me and a welcomed one! Gangrel with his cheating and rule breaking was the perfect foil for Williams’s technical wrestling prowess and these two elements created a good solid wrestling match. Once again Gangrel could not put Williams away and had to cheat in the end to do so. England might have lost 2-0 on this night, but they can dispute both losses and will win the series somewhere down the road I believe!

INTERMISSION

Robbie Dynamite vs. Metal Master

”Get them spikes off” barks Dynamite, the ASW fans clap and stamp as the match gets underway. Lock up Dynamite pushes Master off, leg trips are traded producing an ECW like stand off. Neither competitor can get a clear advantage with their opponent slipping out of moves, the mirroring continues as headlock takeovers are reversed out of by both men. Dynamite applies the wristlock but Master just as quickly flips out and applies a hand twist. Dynamite crotches Master on the top rope, but Master punches back knocking Dynamite off, and connects with a flying shoulder tackle. Chops and Forearms are traded as the contest becomes hot and heavy, Master hit’s a perfect float over DDT and leg lariat to continue the attack. Master connects with an Asai moon-sault but gets caught when attempting a suplex, which Dynamite skilfully reverses into a DDT. Master is able to regain his composure and finishes the match with the Jackhammer, causing the ASW fans to go insane!

Match Time: 14 minutes

Winner: Metal Master

My Thoughts:

That was a great match! Mixing both technical wrestling and high flying which produced a breathtaking experience for the ASW fans. Master and Dynamite meshed well together, and once again with the time given both were able to give their very best for the fans. With Master picking up the win against the Middleweight Champion the ASW fans could well see a Title match between the two down the road and I for one would love to be present if/when that takes place!

A list of Birthday’s are run through (with each kid introducing themselves), a raffle and finally plugs for shops where All Star Wrestling posters are displayed.

Main Event

Canada vs. England

Rene Dupree & Quebecer Pierre vs. UK Dream Team (Kid Cool & Deano)

Inaudible French Canadian promo, followed by ”You have no respect for 3 Time Tag Team Champions!”. The Canadian national anthem then plays, interrupted by UK Dream Team’s entrance music. ”Who are ya?” chants directed at Dupree and Pierre, Dupree wants the females to stop looking at his bottom. ”England, England” chant starts up as Deano applies the headlock to Pierre, ”Deano, Deano” chant starts as Deano bounces off Pierre (after attempting a shoulder block). Pierre’s shoulder knocks Deano down again but with the help of Cool and a pair of double dropkicks the UK Dream Team take the advantage and clear the ring. Dupree gets his first public warning for double teaming Cool for too long, Deano angry at the refereeing gives the ref an earful which only helps Dupree & Pierre in double teaming Cool. Cool fights back with an elbow to Dupree and then finally makes the tag to Deano! Who quickly takes over with a Superkick to Dupree and a 6-1-9 on Pierre, Deano covers Dupree (Pierre accidentally splashes Dupree trying to break up the cover) allowing Deano to connect with his patented second rope moon-sault for the three count.

Match Time: 13 minutes

Winner: UK Dream Team (Kid Cool & Deano)

My Thoughts:

A good heated way to end the show. The fans were fully behind the English team whilst despising everything that the Canadians did (underhanded or otherwise). Power vs. Quickness was the theme for this match also, with Dupree & Pierre providing the power and Deano & Cool providing the quickness. The two teams worked well together to produce a good old school tag match, with England winning their first match of the evening.

Canada 0-1 England

Overall Thoughts:

Kramer vs. Prince was a good opening match. Danielson vs. Powers was a good technical match. Williams and Gangrel meshed well together to have a good match, Master vs. Dynamite was high paced, excellently wrestled and just a great match! Pierre & Dupree vs. UK Dream Team was a good old school tag match and a good way to end the show. ASW once again proved why it’s the best British Wrestling promotion with a fantastic card of wrestling (with each match give ample time to entertain the fans) and a sell out crowd, they do the easy things right and the fans respond in their droves by continuing to support the product.

Match of the Night:

Robbie Dynamite vs. Metal Master

Още едно шоу, което с най-голямо удоволствие бих изгледах. Човек убивам да видя Dupree & PCO (Pierre Carl Ouelette a.k.a. Jean-Pierre LaFitte от WWF, X от TNA) като отбор. За мен Dupree винаги е имал голям потенциал да стане доста добър arrogant heel, но така и не разви потенциала си в WWE (duh). Наскоро го гледах в Hustle и рулираше, така че този отбор с PCO ми звучи страхотно.

Results from Southampton.

Phil Powers over Ricky Hype with a top rope leg drop. Generic stuff, pretty good but very long for an opener.

Mikey Whiplash pins Frankie Sloan after hitting a top rope knee drop. Lots of gay jokes.

Metal Master and American Dragon (with his mask) beat Rene Dupree and Quebecer Pierre. Master pinned Dupree after a mistimed shot from the Canadian flag of Oulett. Really fun, with the Frenchies being awesome dastardly heels and AmDrag and MM doing the high-flying masked team brilliantly.

Doug Williams over Chris The Bambi Killer with a school boy counter to a cross arm breaker. Really solid technical match.

Robbie Brookside beat Gangrel by countout. Lots of shenanigans with the ref getting knocked out and evil Rene Dupree taking his place, until Frankie Sloan makes the save the baddies bail.

Обичайните неща + Danielson със старият си маскиран gimmick + Robbie Brookside (един от топ кечистите на Англия за последните 20-тина години) + Chris The Bambi Killer (хмм, той нямаше ли договор с WWE?)!~ Съвсем сериозно човек убивам да видя някое от тези шоута. Звучат ми като супер забавни кеч шоута.

От това, което чета и малкото неща, които изгледах не знам дали ASW е чак "the best British Wrestling promotion", но определно звучи като една много забавна федерация, към която изпитвам единствено и само огромно уважение. Чесно казано, за първи път чух за All Star преди около 3 години, когато един познат беше на шоу на федерацията и ми разправяше колко забавно е било шоуто, но до този момент не бях обръщал сериозно внимание на федерацията. All Star rules, a Европа има нужда от повече стабилни кеч федерации като тази!

И за финал няколко снимки:

American Dragon

Rene Dupree

Broady Steele (който вече няколко месеца е шампиона на федерацията)

Doug Williams beat Gangrel

American Dragon beat Phil Powers and Bad Bones in a Triple Threat Match

Iceman beat Lance Thunder

Tony Spitfire beat Robbie Dynamite

First up it was local boy Tony Spitfire going up against Robbie ‘the Body’ Dynamite. In what was an uncharacteristic high flying ASW match, Tony Spitfire came home with the win after a cross body block.

The next match saw the dreaded Iceman take on Lance Thunder. Iceman made his size advantage count and got the three after a spine-shuddering lariat.

The third match was a brilliant triple threat match. Phil Powers, Germany’s Bad Bones and the incredible American Dragon locked horns. Powers was eliminated first by Bad Bones who villainously used his German flag on Powers nether regions to snatch the pinfall. American Dragon though battled on and with the support of Powers at ringside picked up the victory with a gravity-defying splash.

The next match saw Gangrel take on Doug Williams. Gangrel was disqualified for continuous cheating and the match went to Williams.

The final match saw a Canada vs. England tag team match. Representing Canada was former two time WWE tag champion Rene Dupree teaming with former three time WWE tag champ Pierre LaFitte. They ran down the crowd, their opponents and British wrestling in general. Chris Bambi and Xtreme Dean though had heard enough and hit the ring, and their opponents, hard. After a solid match, the British team shocked the odds with the victory they’ll tell their Grandkids about.

Тези посещаемости само като ги гледам и ме изпълват отвсякъде. Не знаех, че федерацията се представя чак толкова добре и то редовно. Евала!

И за финал две забавни историйки от шоутата :):

After the show a fan (wearing a Cactus Jack shirt) came up to American Dragon and asked him to sign a ROH poster with Danielson on it. Dragon (wearing his mask) said "I'm not signing that, that's not me, but I'll sign that (piece of paper)".

Met Doug Williams who was great. He was talking to a young kid and the conversation went like this:

KID: "Who are you?"

WILLIAMS: "I was wrestling Gangrel ... the Vampire"

KID: "You'rе not Gangrel!"

WILLIAMS: "No, I was wrestling him"

KID: "You wrestled Gangrel? MAM HE WRESTLED GANGREL!"

In front of a full house they even put extra seat in.

Dean Allmark beat American Dragon.

Pierre Lafitte beat Robbie Dynamite.

Renee Dupree vs James Mason when to a double count out.

"Greek God" Pappa Don beat Cougar Kid.

Robbie Brookside and Nick Aldis beat Broady Steele and Gangrel.

A really good night of wrestling. Dupree still looks jacked.

------------------------------------------

Awesome show tonight in Leamington, like other shows on the tour all matches were fantastic.

Резултатите от шоуто на 11-ти в Liverpool още ги няма, но се чу, че Robbie Brookside е победил Broady Steele и е новият шампион, а пък посещаемостта е била към 2000 души, което е значително повече както от The King of Europe Cup миналата година, така и от шоутата на ROH в Англия. All Star мачка наред!

Дизайна на шампионския пояс, ми е доста познат. Може би ми прилича на някой от старите колани на Е-то.

И тая историика с детето е супер :lol:

All-Star Wrestling Report: Monday 11th February 2008

The Royal Empire Theatre, Liverpool, United Kingdom

On my travels yet again. This time I found myself in Liverpool watching the All-Star wrestling group. The touring All-Star promotion runs throughout the year at various UK sites. I always take it in when it comes to my hometown (Chester) but decided to take a quick trip up to Liverpool to see it on a bit of a bigger scale. The roster for February was stacked and some of the stars in attendance last night were 'American Dragon' Bryan Danielson, Doug Williams, Robbie Brookside, Rene Dupree, Pierre Lafitte and Gangrel. I couldn't miss this. The Empire Theatre holds 1,800 and I think 1,600 was the attendance figure that was announced so a good crowd was in. Sitting down in the upper circle of the theatre, I pictured and compared it to the setting of Monday Night Raw in early 1993. As the curtain came up and the sparklers alighted in a way similar to the entrance of Chris Masters, the All-Star dancers started the night off with a dance number which was a much tamer version of Extreme Expose. Well it had to be really, as the event was very family orientated with the audience made up of mostly kids and families. With the ring setup on a small stage directly below me, we were ready to start. The show started on time at 7:30pm and finished at 9:45pm. There was a 15 minute intermission halfway through and the crowd were hot all night. Five matches were scheduled with each match having a 20 minute time limit. Here we go.

1)"Filthy" Phil Powers vs Frankie Sloan

From the first bout it was obviously more of a carnaval type show as anyone that wasn't from the UK or carried a British flag got booed. Both Powers and Sloan were from the UK but Powers came out with a black flag which got him instant heat. This one had lots of stalling at the start. Powers constantly chanted 'Chelsea's Number 1' to get heat. (Chelsea is a place in London). Sloan countered with a 'Liverpool' chant to get the inevitable face pop. Basic opener with Sloan getting the advantage then Powers reversing the tide. Sloan eventually won it with a top rope cross body. Little to no selling from both in a sloppy match. Here is Your Winner: FRANKIE SLOAN.

2)James Mason vs Gangrel

This one was billed as an 'International Heavyweight Challenge'. Apparently these two have fought a lot on this circuit. Mason had control for the most part as Gangrel played the part of chickenshit heel brilliantly while constantly jawjacking with the crowd. Gangrel refrained from using profanities. However, Gangrel did receive a public warning for a blatant kick in the balls. I don't know why it wasn't an instant DQ. The finish came when Mason Irish whipped Gangrel then missed a charge allowing Gangrel to roll Mason up and get the win with his feet on the ropes. Mason protested after the match and led the crowd in a cheat chant but Gangrel didn't come back out. The referee didn't reverse the decision either. Here is Your Winner: GANGREL.

3)American Dragon, Metal Master, Rene Dupree & Pierre Lafitte vs Doug Williams, Ben Levy, Robbie Dynamite

& Deano (Xtreme Dean Allmark)

This match was dubbed as an 8 man International tag team match where the only way to win was to throw your opponents over the top rope. Basic tag match rules apply though. It was the USA/Canada combo vs The Great Britain All-Stars. Master and Dragon both came out in masks. Dupree played the cocky heel, trying it on and posing with the ring girls. Dragon cut a heel promo to start. He told us to shut up and show respect as he comes from the greatest country in the world (USA). Dragon then proceeded to sing the U.S national anthem but kept stopping as the boos were putting him off. Master ended up putting his hands over Dragon's ears allowing him to sing the anthem in full. Lafitte then started to sing the French-Canadian anthem but stopped before saying we didn't deserve it. The Brits came out to a massive pop and they were all wearing red All-Star wrestling shirts. It was noted that Levy was voted best British newcomer for 2007 while Deano was being touted as a kickboxing champion. The Brits started off well landing double dropkicks, double hiptosses and a four way Irish whip to their foreign counterparts. Deano then hit Dragon with a 619. Dragon sure wasn't working an ROH type match as he stayed pure sports entertainment. Still, Dragon was inexplicably the first man out. After a top rope backflip over Dynamite, Dragon missed a lunge and Dynamite threw him out. Enraged, Dragon tried to get back in only to be sent back over the top rope by a Dynamite dropkick. Master levelled things up by depositing Levy. Lafitte then caught Dynamite in a sky high/sitdown powerbomb before tossing him out. Deano levelled things up once again after landing sweet chin music and a second rope moonsault to Master. This left Master ripe for inevitable elimination. Dupree then got rid of Williams to leave Deano at the mercy of the Canadians. After a brief double team, Lafitte sent Deano to the corner then Irish whipped Dupree but Deano managed to backdrop Dupree out. It was down to Deano and Lafitte. After eliminations, the Brits stayed out whereas the heels went to the back but Dupree stayed out and hid on the floor. After hooking Deano's leg, Dupree held him for an open shot on the apron. Deano avoided Lafitte's charge and Dupree was sent flying again. Deano then pushed Lafitte out to win. This was the best match of the night. Here is Your Winner: DEANO.

Intermission was followed by another dance number from the All-Star dancers.

4)(Mr USA) Brody Steele vs Robbie Brookside

(All-Star Heavyweight Title Match)

This was the announced Main Event. Steele's enjoying a 1+ year reign as champ. Steele got on the mic saying he initially refused to come to this filthy city. When he found out he'd be facing local hero Robbie Brookside he reconsidered. Steele said there's nothing better than beating a filthy, slimy scouser. After winning, Steele boasted he'd walk through the crowd then Liverpool and kick the crap out of everyone. Good promo. Brookside came out to a big pop. This was the only match which had no time limit. Brookside controlled the early going with solid matwork. Steele hung Brookside up on the top rope to turn the tide. Steele used power moves, a sidewalk slam and a chinlock to wear down Brookside. Brookside recovered to hit a tree of woe dropkick. Steele countered a cross body to hit a Mark Henry esque world's strongest slam for a close nearfall. The fight then spilled outside for a while. Back inside, Brookside managed to catch Steele on the top rope and fling him off with both arms to pick up the win. After the match a small pile of confetti went off in celebration. Crowd loved the finish. Good match. Here is Your Winner & New All-Star Heavyweight Champion: ROBBIE BROOKSIDE.

5)The Bambi Killer vs The Fearless Flatliner

This was a comedy match which was designed for the kids. Think Eugene but on a funnier scale. Bambi Killer is an Austrain heel on his first tour. Flatliner is a big bald Johnny B. Badd type character who was very popular with the kids. Flatliner got on the mic and started a 'Whassup' chant. Flatliner then trapped himself in his own tights then de-pantsed the referee and Bambi. Flatliner stalked Bambi with a mock nazi salute then turned a test of strength spot into a merry dance around the ring. Flatliner goaded Bambi with many chicken chants which riled him up. Bambi finally got some offense with a couple of clotheslines then wore Flatliner down with several nerveholds. Flatliner escaped the third nervehold with a stunner. Flatliner gave Bambi a stinkface in the corner then delivered a rolling fireman carry drop (ala Mr Kennedy's steam roller) then a big splash to get the win and send everyone home happy. Here is Your Winner: THE FEARLESS FLATLINER.

There was a massive queue to go backstage after the event and get autographs. When I made it through I just missed Gangrel and Rene Dupree was finishing up and looked a bit agitated at everyone crowding him. I briefly spoke to Doug Williams and American Dragon before getting their autographs and a picture with Dragon. I then spoke with Robbie Brookside for a bit about the mentions Chris Jericho gives him in his book. Brookside seemed surprised he'd included them so I said I'd show the book to him when he comes to Chester next month. Brookside was very outgoing, pleasant and very easy to talk to. After getting a picture with him, I left feeling fulfilled after watching a good night of wrestling. All-Star Wrestling comes to Chester in March then Birkenhead (near Liverpool) in April so I'll be attending both shows and will post reports. In the meantime, if an indy show comes to a town near you, check it out. Support the Indies.

Просто за протокола ще отбележа, че All Star преди няколко дена добавиха 88 шоута към графика си до края на годината! Специално през октомври ще проведат 27 шоута! Taзи година ASW просто са се развихрили отвсякъде и мачкат наред. Кечът има нужда от повече такива силни местни федерации, а не от indy-та, които правят по две шоута на месец, така че All Star имат едно огромно евала от мен. :good:

Aйде нека да има и малко от по-новите резултати:

Tonight's results from Grimsby:

Biggest crowd here yet for All-Star, not quite a sell-out. They announced 1000, probably not far off that.

Referee for each match was Bryce Rimsburg.

1) Chad Collyer beat Jonny Storm with a texas cloverleaf.

2) Deano bt T.N.T. with a frog splash.

3) Robbie Brookside & Frankie Sloan bt Chris Hero & Chuck Taylor by pinfall after Brookside slammed Taylor off the top rope.

4) Marty Scrull bt The Flying Scotsman with a slingshot sunset flip.

5) Frankie Sloan won a 15 man battle royal, lastly eliminating Carl Oulette.

First time I've seen Jonny Storm at Grimsby, first time I've seen him for All-Star.

Go through any 2006 1PW topic and you'll see I'm the biggest Jonny Storm critic in the world when he works serious in front of a largely smart crowd. But in front of a younger audience that All-Star attracts and he is superb. Right from the entrance he got the crowd's attention completely. Holding up a sign an old woman brought saying SPANK THE YANK before giving her a kiss got some laughs, as did slamming Collyer on the floor before picking up a kid on the front row and bodyslamming him onto Collyer. That was followed by grabbing a foam finger from a fan and giving Collyer an eye poke with it. The crowd lapped it up, myself included.

Collyer's Rick Rude mannerisms got good heat and it looks like my 6 year old nephew will be doing the hip-swivel pose for some time to come.

Great match, most enjoyable I have seen this year.

Deano turned up a nobody but left the ring very popular. Aside from a botched headscissor he looked great. TNT is a very interesting looking fella. I was distracted by his boots which seemed a few sizes too big to the point where he was walking on the sides as opposed to the sole. Not a great match.

Hugely disappointed with the Liverpool Lads vs Hero & Taylor tag match. During the babyfaces entrance Hero just kept flipping over and through the ropes to the apron and back in many different ways. He also did a backflip off the top rope landing on his feet. Odd to see a heel doing these things without a hint of intended arrogance.

Grimsby's favourite wrestler Robbie Brookside only came in once early for an arm wringer, and again right at the end for the match ending slam on Taylor off the top rope. Though he showed no obvious signs of an injury I assumed he must have one.

I've only seen a handful of Hero matches from IWA:MS & ROH which left me unimpressed and that opinion hasn't changed following tonight. Taylor showed nothing also.

Following the interval they had what history has proved to be the worst possible match type in front of this audience: 2 inexperienced workers, both working babyface. My nephew asked me which was the goodie and which was the baddie and I heard kids around our section asking similar questions.

Neither man sucked, but with no crowd reactions it was never going to steal the show.

Then came the 15 man Royal Rumble, featuring:

- Jonny Storm

- Chad Collyer

- Deano

- Robbie Brookside

- Frankie Sloan

- Chris Hero

- Chuck Taylor

- Marty Scrull

- Flying Scotsman

- Skeletor

- Nick Aldis

- Carl Oulette

- Bad Bones

- Ben Levi

- some other guy who looked like the scotsman.

No El Generico, Dupree or Mason then. Decent brawl with the expected good crowd heat and a good finish.

The final four were Brookside, Sloan, Oulette and Hero. Brookside collapsed out of the blue holding his knee, it looked legit and neither heel touched him choosing to double team Sloan instead. When Robbie finally got upright he had a short brawl with Hero (while stood on the spot) before being eliminated (much to the crowd's suprise). Then it was the time-honoured 2 heels vs 1 babyface battle royal finish. After Hero got eliminated he kept coming back to interfere helping Oulette until Sloan ducked an Oulette running clothesline which took out Hero and Frankie dumped him over to win.

The crowd erupted which was great and everyone left very happy.

So two very good matches out of five - the opener and the main event - and a much more star-studded lineup than we are used to in Grimsby.

Results from a jam-packed Grimsby Auditorium tonight (ring announcer claimed 1,000 in attendance)

Chad Collyer defeated Jonny Storm via Submission

Deano pinned TNT

Liverpool Lads beat Chris Hero and Chuck Taylor when Brookside pinned Chucky T after the Iconoclasm.

Never seen Chuck Taylor before but he was an absolute riot and both he and Hero were heat magnets.

Taylor got me on his side right away when a young kid ran up to heckle him and he went "HI-YA!" while simultaneously delivering a thrust kick to the air in the kids direction which sent said youngster scarpering.

Marty Scurll pinned Lee Thomas

Frankie Sloane won Royal Rumble main event (including all previous entrants as well as Bad Bones, Ben Levy, Nick Aldis, Cougar Kid and Pierre Carl Oulette) by last eliminating Hero and Oulette.

I think Brookside was meant to win but he appeared to legit blow his knee out towards the end as he was visibly in a lot of pain and was quickly eliminated by Hero.

Again, Chuck Taylor was a blast as he was circled by booing and heckling kids as he made his way to the ring - he put up his fists in a fighting stance and shuffled his feet while going "Come on, who wants some? I'll take all of you on!"

Challenging kids to a fight? Fuckin' marvellous!

I have instantly become a Chuck Taylor fan.

Not quite the star-studded card it could have been due to Rene Dupree and Gangrel being in Ireland and El Generico being in Scotland but, for turning up and buying a ringside ticket on the door, it was a great fun night as always from All Star and well worth the trip.

Results from last night in Gravesend before a crowd of 500

1. Deano pinned Chad Collyer

2. Doug Williams pinned The Smackdown Warrior

3. Tatanka pinned "Hollywood" Hannibal

4. The Liverpool Lads (Robbie Brookside/Frankie Sloan) beat Carl Oulette & Rene Dupree

5. Flatliner pinned Lee Thomas

Opener was very good, as might be expected with two very capable wrestlers.

Doug had to do the Ric Flair tribute "broomstick" match with Smackdown Warrior in a poor match.

Tatanka looked good against Hannibal in what was an alright match in what was billed as one half of the double main event. Tatanka was very over with the many kids in the audience, and introduced as "The Legendary Tatanka", which amused me.

The other half of the main event was the tag match, which was mostly notable because of Rene Dupree. First time I've seen him for All Star, and he just oozed greatness. What was so awesome about him was how natural he seemed in everything he did. His working of the crowd didn't seem "put on" and his selling wasn't just stupid mugging. It was a natural extension of his heel demeanour. It's like he was a cocky bastard without being a cartoon character. Two thumbs up for him. Obviously he's working most nights for Dixon (собственика на ASW) anyway, but Dupree should be getting booked for every other promotion who can get him. Also - Oulette & Dupree... pretty awesome team, when you think about it. La Quebec Resistance, I guess.

Speaking of cartoon characters, Flatliner finished the night with the "Send 'Em Home Laughing" match.

Резултати няма да пускам, но ще спомена някои от по-извесните имена, които се биха/бият в ASW напоследък:

Rene Dupree

Tatanka

Gangrel

Big Vito

Doug Basham

Brutus Magnus/Nick Aldis/Gladiator Oblivion

Doug Williams

Jonny Storm

Chad Collyer

"The American Nasty Boys" (Drake Younger & Sami Callihan)

Федерацията продължава да прави по минимум 10 шоута на месец (което е страшно много за indy федерация) и продължава да draw-ва добри публики. Освен това, почнаха да ползват и шестоъгълния си ринг по-често. И не на последно място, един от кечистите на федерацията последва примера на Brutus Magnus и стана един от гладиаторите във втория сезон на "UK Gladiators". Gladiator Goliath (a.k.a. кечиста Smackdown Warrior):
