» If one evil wXw champion in ‘New Superstar’ Stevie Douglas wasn’t enough, IPW:UK matchmakers today confirmed that the High Class Catch Club (comprising of Adam Polak & Baron von Hagen – photo: http://www.ipwuk.com/roster/images/highclasscatchclub.jpg) will be taking on the team of the Lucha’s on the first night of the IPW:UK Tag Team Title Tournament.
The Catch Club, as we already mentioned, are the current reigning and defending wXw Tag Team Champions – and not only that, but are currently undefeated in wXw! Just this past Sunday evening (19th June 2005), both men faced off against ‘New Superstar’ Stevie Douglas and Naomichi Marufuji in the finals of a wXw hosted tournament and defeated those two men in just over ten-minutes, after defeating fellow Brits GTS & Iceman earlier in the evening in what some German fans considered a candidate for their match of the year. Both are big strong bruisers making their UK debut. Will the pure power of the Catch Club hold out and add more tag gold to their repertoire, or will the speed of El Ligero be too much for the wXw champions?
» Want to know when to mark in your diary your returns to Orpington, Kent, for IPW:UK action? Well, IPW:UK can today announce the following two shows:
IPW:UK Extreme Measures 2: Sunday August 21st 2005
More updates on the wrestlers appearing at these events will be made known as soon as it’s released. Also, if successful, we hope to add further dates in Leigh-On-Sea to the upcoming show calendar very soon.
» In his UK debut, the son of the late great Davey Boy Smith – The British Bulldog, Harry Smith will come to IPW:UK this July. At the tender age of just 18, Smith has already competed across the Globe, recently making his first foray into Japan and having dark matches with the WWE. He hasn’t, however, made his competitive debut in England. But, come July 16th, he will have. Teaming together with Andy Boy Simmonz, Smith will look to continue the family’s strong tag team history this side of the pond, after previously holding tag straps in Canada with fellow “Stampede Bulldog” TJ Wilson.
Tickets to this spectacular double head “Weekend of Champions” are now on sale by either calling the Kent box office on 07780 677007, or heading over to www.ipwuk.com and clicking on “Tickets”.
