» Top British talent The Zebra Kid has become the latest and final competitor to enter in the Best of British: Heavyweights match!
Zebra, who can be currently seen regularly in his home promotion WAW as well as in the FWA, Premier Promotions and many more, is currently known as one of the toughest competitors in the wrestling business today. Trained by his own father, “Rowdy” Ricky Knight, Zebra has promised to hold nothing back and defeat fellow confirmed competitors “The Enforcer” Martin Stone, James Tighe and anybody else put in his path, in order to become the second number one contender to the IPW:UK title!
“Charming” Don Charles, the manager of Martin Stone, is said to be irate at the inclusion of The Zebra Kid into the match. Charles – who is still nursing a massive face wound after becoming a recipient of a Samoa Joe bootscrape at the last show – is afraid that Zebra will not only unleash his fury on Stone but also him.
James Tighe has also sent word to the IPW:UK offices that he is fit, confident and ready to fight on May 22nd and has even gone so far as to start negotiations for further bookings within the company!
» Spud is officially confirmed for IPW:UK Best of British 2, but at the time of press there are still no opponent(s) for the Brummie brawler!
Spud asked to be included into the Tony Sefton/Jack Storm rematch, but had his request denied due to the current delicate situation between himself and Storm. Jack attacked his former friend at the last IPW:UK show with a brutal cradle piledriver that left the already concussed Spud with further head injuries. IPW:UK management agreed that was for the best to let the situation simmer down for a while before letting the two men go at it on a future show.
