The year kicked off straight away with a wrestling show from 'Britain's Maddest Wrestling Promotion;
Friday 5th January, Rise; Underground Pro Wrestling
at Brudenell Social Club, Leeds. This is an over 18's show and its definitely for a reason, the clue is in the name. Todays show was the RISE Rumble with an main event of a 30 man over the top rope RISE Rumble. We knew this was going to be a crazy event as it was the first sell out show for RISE, what a way to start the year! The first half of the show included three fantastic matches. These were David Graves vs Liam Slater. This was a match to conclude a rivalry between two friends that became bitter enemies, with the winner getting entry into the Rise Rumble and loser leaving Rise for good. Muscle Cat Saxon Huxley Vs Luke Menzies was another conclusion to a rivalry and definitely made the ring shake, got to love big lads wrestling! The women's match between Little Miss Roxxy Vs Voodo Queen spilled into the packed out venue . There was also an excellent promo about Uncle Bobby bRumble, it was certainly entertaining throughout with a mix of some comedy, excellent heal action, technique, stamina and shock and horror. Our highlights from throughout the rumble were, Bulk being coaxed out of the ring with KFC, the debut of Sebb Strife, David Graves wrestling for well over 80 minutes (as well as his previous match), Nina Samuals the only female contestant lasting well and taking and giving as much action as the men, Boris Koslov, Ugandan Warrior and Sebb Strife doing the shield bomb, Cayden being eliminated but being crowd surfaced back in and not to mention the absolutely chaotic ending between Big Joe and Darwin.eing in a food coma, which the Darwin family rudely interrupted. The second half was the
Rise not only put on an insane show they also release entertaining promo videos to set the scene and intensify the outcome of the upcoming matches. These can be found on the lead up to each event on their Facebook Page (Click Here).

Saturday 20th January - True Grit Wrestling Fibbers York
This show was all about the True Grit Championship, with four matches to decide who would progress into the main event and 4 Way Elimination Match for The True Grit Championship. It kicked off with the popular 'Mad Russian' Boris Koslov Vs. the psychotic B.A Rose. The match was a great opener to a great evening of wrestling. Then it was the home town 'Pork from York' Dom Black Vs 'The Powerhouse' Luke Menzies. Dom certainly wasn't sure about how he was going to defeat Menzies and spoke about possibly cheating on our HMGW Show when we interviewed him live. This interview can be found by clicking here. However he didn't cheat and even though at points it seemed like Dom was just a rag doll he certainly put on a valiant effort and did York proud. Just before a break we were treated to an extra tag team match between The Lion Kings Vs 'The Amazing' Matt Myers and Ace Matthews. This match started with a comedy sketch as Ace appeared with a cocky entrance and a headset, making a fool of himself, as his tag team partner Matt tried to just get on with the match. However once it got underway the Lion Kings displayed their ferocious wrestling style causing Ace and Matt to get serious. Next was Saxon Huxley 'The Muscle Cat' Vs Sean Only, this was a highly anticipated match between two top quality wrestlers. The last of the four matches was between 'The Grafter' David Graves Vs El Ligero. This match was epic and the stand out match of the evening. Both men displayed every ounce of their talent and complimented each others skill and abilities throughout the match. The match kept the spectators hooked with some stand out moves such as El Ligero jumping of the barrier onto David when the action spilled out of the ring. The conclusions of all of the matches meant that the qualifying match for the True Grit Championship was a fatal 4 way elimination match between David Graves Vs Luke Menzies Vs B.A Rose Vs Saxon Huxley. This match spilt all over the venue and outside with each one of the wrestlers putting their all into trying to win the championship.

Saturday 27th January- Grapple Wrestling, Miners Hall Garforth. A great family friendly show. This show was called Live Wrestling Returns to Garforth. Unfortunately we cant remember the actual running order. We are going to start with a four way tag team match which was The Lion Kings Vs George Anderson & Brett Shaw Vs Travis Harwood & Joe Wade Vs Kieran Sargeant & Simon Bullock. The Lion Kings really did show why they are one of Britain's hottest tag teams at the moment. They demonstrated exactly how a tag team should gel together. However their opponents were no push overs and what they lacked in experience they made up for in speed and agility. They are definitely six young upcoming wrestlers to look out for on the British scene. The ladies match of the night was Ruby Radley Vs Natalie Sykes. Ruby brought her wealth of experience against the new and upcoming Natalie Sykes. Natalie certainly made an impression on us as it was the first time we had seen her perform. The Phantom Jake Silver Vs Rollin Mark Rolls was a full filled match which put smiles on everybody's faces. Next there was a Joe Nelson Vs Jeremy Fenton Vs Pop Punk Kid. Teenagers against the Teenage Look Alike. Throughout this match the Pop Punk Kid kept his irritating yet amusing mouth flowing and used as many underhanded tactics as possible. Joe Nelson is the youngest British Pro Wrestler on the British Scene and its always a pleasure to see him perform. This was the first time we had seen Jeremy, his slender build meant that he was nimble on his feet and a worthy opponent. All three put on a great, back and forth three way dance, keeping everybody in the venue entertained. The last three matches were; The Velocity Champion Jack Bandicoot who defended his belt against the up and coming Myles Kayman. This was a fast fuelled match for the Velocity Championship. There was definitely a reason why they were competitors for this as their speed and ability to change direction of their moves was on point. El Ligaro Vs Cowboy John, This match was betweem the King of Sleeze Cowboy John Vs The Ultimate LuchaDoor 'Olay' El Ligero. Cowboy John truly does add fantastic slimy, cheesy comedy value every time he slips those cowboy boots on to wrestle in the squared circle. This match was no exception. His cocky persona didn't work out though as his constant attempts to be 'El Ligeros friend and try to out smart him for the win backfired and meant he got his bottom spanked several times. The last match and main event of the night was
