UPW Arrival Review
Fri 15th Sept 2017 Street,UK
Marty Scrull, CCK and More!
This was my first ever time at Ultimate Pro Wrestling show. UPW have been running for some time now and I just managed to find the right date and time and what a show I picked!
As I say all the time its great to get out and see different shows, different matches are as much different talent as possible.
UPW Arrival has Marty Scrull, CCK, Josh Bodom, Ryan Smile and many more a packed card!
(All photos taken by me)
I was treated to a tremendous night of action, the card from start to finish was great and had some incredible matches
Dan Magee Vs Jeckal
Jeckyl and Dan Magee kicked us off with the crowd solidly behind Magee, However Jeckyl was more than happy to use any underhand tactics and abuse the fans in attendance and Jeckyl was able to come away with the win.
Winner - Jeckyl
Ayesha Ray Vs Connie Steele
I was seeing both these ladies for the first time live and they both impressed. Connie did not like anyone at all, she was ordering around officials and ring announcers (and as you will see below used them in a very strange way!)
It was great to see Ayesha Ray Live for the first time she has such presence and ability to match.
The WWE Mae Young Classic competitor dominated the match and Connie was unable to overcome her strength and power and was able to win with a Double handed Chokeslam to Connie!
Winner - Ayesha Ray
Marty Scrull vs Mark Haskins
Mark Haskins is out first and looks ready for Business, Marty Scrull comes out next with his trademark Umbrella and Mask.
The Match began and these two had a crazy, incredible match. They were wrestling in the ring and then the action spilled out on the floor where Mark and Marty fought in the crowd, sat on seats in the crowd and then shouted "S*** it" at each other at one point Marty Face ended up being rubbed in Mark crotch!!
Marty was able to win the match and make Mark tap out to the Chicken Wing Submission.
Winner - Marty Scrull
CCK Vs Charleston Allen & Kip Sabian
I was very happy to have the opportunity to see CCK live again and again for the first time I was seeing Charleston Allen and Kip Sabian.
I must say that I really enjoyed the dynamic between Sabian and Allen especially Allen dedication to the fact that he is number 1 and everyone else is none!
CCK were unbelievable as always with such a unique array of tag team manoeuvres. With CCK you always see something new and CCK are doing so many great things for UK Wrestling and Tag Team Wrestling in particular.
Chris Brookes and Kid Lykos really are must see in person!
CCK won the match via Pinfall
CCK will be back in UPW next show as it was announced CCK will take on The Brothers Awe
Winners - CCK
Eddie Ryan Vs Josh Bodom Vs Ryan Smile
I thought that Eddie Ryan vs Josh Bodom Vs Ryan Smile was an excellent Triple Threat match and had a tremendous mix of so much action, intensity and althletism.
Adding Ryan Smile to this as well as added such a dynamic element and on a personally level I was happy to see Ryan as last time I saw him live in South West was 2013.
Josh Bodom won the match and is now number one contender for the UPW World Title. In my opinion Josh deserves it, he has so much natural ability and on this showing tonight is a future world champion.
Winner and Number one Contender - Josh Bodom
UPW World Title
Iestyn Rees Vs Dirty Dick Riley
Iestyn Rees and Dick Riley were in combat for the UPW World Title. Champion Dick Riley looked confident as he came to the ring against the imposing Lestyn Rees.
Dick Riley used his own ability and skill to take down the huge rees, with suicide dives and a somersault dive off the merchandise table!!
Iestyn took control in a lot of the match and even grabbed the UPW world Title when the referee was down after being crushed in the corner.
However it was Dick Riley who was successfully able to retain his title and as such now looks like it will be Dick Riley vs Number one Contender Josh Bodom very soon.
Winner and Still Champion - Dick Riley
Meet and Greet
I managed to meet Marty Scrull and CCK after the show
I was very happy to meet Marty and talk to him and he was a super nice guy, I got to tell him about to my trip to Japan in January to Wrestlekingdom and talked a bit about what an amazing country it is.
(If you want to see my trip to Japan check out my travel vlog click the video below)
CCK Chris Brookes and Kid Lykos were excellent to Meet I spoke to them about their Progress Wrestling Debut in Manchester back in May and it being my first Progress show as a fan too.
They were tremendous and have such a brilliant future ahead of them in Professional wrestling. Chris Brookes even took a brilliant selfie :) Thanks CCK!
