Recap of News and Highlights from This Week (15th-21st February)
NEW CHAMPIONS CONTINUE THEIR WINNING WAYS
New Champions GISELE SHAW and MICHAEL OKU continue their winning ways. MICHAEL OKU picked a very impressive victory over heavyweight KYLER FLETCHER, as both wrestler’s are fan favourites, they matched each other hold for hold, however, FLETCHER’s strength began to prevail through against OKU but the ‘master of the half-crab’s ingenuity ad creativity helped him to victory as FLETCHER went for his piledriver, OKU reversed into a roll-up pin for the win.
SHAW picked a strong win over newcomer ALEAH JAMES. As young upstart impressed with her speed, flexibility and balance, the champion's experience came through as she outpowered the newcomer and managed to lock in her patented armbar submission, forcing JAMES to tap out. SHAW’s celebrations were cut short as former champion, ZOE LUCAS came running out from the back, assaulting the champion, as the 'beauty wrestler', clambered for her precious ‘bae’. As she went to strike SHAW with the belt, JAMES intercepted, striking LUCAS across the face with the belt in hand, sending LUCAS to the outside of the rin to gather herself before heading straight for the back.
OKU & FLETCHER COME TO THE AID OF UMINO
MICHAEL OKU & KYLE FLETCHER came to the aid of SHOTA UMINO at the end of Live at the Portsmouth Guildhall, as THE LEGION laid waste to ‘Shooter’ after his defeat to MARK HASKINS in the main event. OKU & FLETCHER came running out to the aid of the starlet.
