Man In The Middle 25/6/15

It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly two weeks since Summer Sizzler, arguably the greatest night in Rev Pro history.  In one night we saw two title changes, 3 potential match of the year candidates and more unforgettable moments than any wrestling event in recent memory.

I don’t need to go into the details of what went down in the York Hall, for those that were there, you witnessed history. For those that weren’t there, get yourselves over to RPWOndemand.com and see what the wrestling world has been talking about!

Rev Pro will be back in the York Hall in October featuring New Japan Pro Wrestling’s biggest stars with 3 huge matches already signed. Already announced are;

  • Gedo and Kazuchika Okada vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi and Jushin “Thunder” Liger
  • Big Damo vs. Shinsuke Nakamura and
  • AJ Styles vs. Marty Scurll vs. Will Ospreay for the Rev Pro Heavyweight Title.

If that isn’t enough to convince you to buy a ticket then I don’t know what will.

Before then, Rev Pro will debut in Southampton in September and return to Broxbourne with both events featuring legendary WWE Hall of Famer, Bret “Hitman” Hart. But before all of that, this Sunday sees our return to the London Cockpit.

The main event this Sunday is a rescheduled match that was supposed to take place at our last Sittingbourne event.  It will see Marty Scurll take on Will Ospreay in a match that now has huge implications following the announcement of the triple threat title match in October. A win here for Ospreay would continue his recent streak of big time wins after defeating Rocky Romero and Matt Sydal in recent weeks. A loss for Scurll could be devastating as the former champ needs to get back to winning ways following his championship defeat at the hands of AJ Styles.

This Sunday will also see the return title match between the Thrillers and new champions, The Revolutionists. With Mark Haskins returning to take his place with Joel Redman, the Thrillers are looking to reclaim what they believe are their titles. The Revolutionist combination of Sha Samuels and James Castle aren’t likely to give up the belts easily though. This one could be a war.

Speaking of wars, this Sunday also sees the rematch between Josh Bodom and Jimmy Havoc. The last encounter between these two men was an all out battle and I expect this one to escalate quickly.

Also on Sunday, the reurning Wild Boar takes on the debuting Flash Morgan Webster. These two young stars from my part of the world know each other extremely well and both will be looking to impress and score that all importnat win.

The match I’m most looking forward to personally this weekend is between two modern British greats when Jonny Storm takes on Doug Williams. Both men have seen a resurgence in their careers recently so it will be interesting to see who comes out on top this Sunday.

Before you come down to the Cockpit on Sunday, why not check out Summer Sizzler on demand to get yourself in the mood for our return to London.

I'll see you from the ring...
