|# Slam vs. Richards Added To Battle Royale On April 22nd, at the Orpington Halls!|
» One of the worst kept secrets in British wrestling is now confirmed, as on April 22nd, Sam Slam faces his first ‘true test’ in IPW:UK. After getting what could possibly be described as a shock win against Iceman at Final Frontiers and capturing the All-England title away from the former FWA, Slam is now a two-time title holder, also holding the British National Under 23’s title.
On April 22nd, however, in a double-non title contest, IPW:UK will throw Sam Slam in right at the deep end against one of the rising stars of the American circuit, PWG and ROH’s Davey Richards.
Richards made his Orpington Halls debut back in February of 2006, when Pro Wrestling Guerrilla ran the England leg of their European Vacation at the venue. In the main event, Richards impressed many and left a strong impression on both wrestlers and fans alike. Fast forward to April 07, and Richards is back in the country for the King of Europe cup in Liverpool on April 28th/29th (koecup.com for more). If you thought Iceman vs. Sam Slam was brutal, just wait to see what Davey Richards has in store for the U23 champion!
# Pac To Fly Again – This Time To CHIKARA In America!
» As is now customary for the top talents in IPW:UK, when promotions from across the pond come knocking, we don’t stand in people’s way (Jonny Storm, Spud and Pac himself have all been given leave of their IPW:UK bookings in the past to compete in America and beyond), and for ‘The Man That Gravity Forgot’ the chance to head out to America and wrestle for another new promotion in the form of CHIKARA was one we wanted to help him achieve.
Unfortunately for the IPW:UK “Wrestler of the year 2006”, this means that he will now miss Battle Royale on April 22nd. As such, IPW:UK have signed a very special SURPRISE replacement that nobody will be disappointed with – the hint being that this international star will also be on the King of Europe Cup!
# More Names Confirmed For The Battle Royale Match Itself – The April 22nd Main Event!
» The first few names for April 22nd’s “Battle Royale” match have already been announced – today we can announce three more:
SWISS MONEY HOLDING – ARES & MARC ROUDIN (11, 12)
The current IPW:UK Tag Team Champions will be both on the attack and the defensive on April 22nd, as they will be looking to win the match and possibly add some singles gold to their repertoire here in IPW:UK, but also be looking to watch their back, because whoever eliminates them faces them (if they retain their titles) the next month at Royale Rewards!
The monster eXodus made a big impact upon his debut at the back end of 2006, absolutely destroying young Lucien from the midlands on two separate occasions. After losing by Countout to Leroy Kincaide in October however, he didn’t re-surface until a big match against Jonny Storm in Portsmouth at the start of the month. With a point to prove, and a massive frame, eXodus has to be one of the favourites to last long into the night.
» It should be remembered, that any champions who enter the match are at risk themselves – if they are thrown out of the Battle Royale match (and 29 people will be!), then the next month, May 20th at Royale Rewards, they must face whoever targets them and eliminates them successfully one-on-one (or two-on-two) for the gold!
» And in addition to the surprise replacement for ‘The Man That Gravity Forgot’ Pac, there will also be four more surprises on the night including three debuts and one IPW:UK return!
