Ultimate Pro Wrestling has had a stellar 2017 and capped it off with its Final Resolution event, this also marked the final stop on the road to the company’s five-on-five man clash with rival organisation, Big League Wrestling. Here’s five things we learned from the event.
1) UPW offers opportunity
With the company offering multiple talents the chance to impress on its Next Generation shows, UPW also saw its chance to give two debut talents a chance as Robbie Everest took on Warren Brady in a decent contest which nicely set the tone for the evening.
2) Eddie Ryan is a loose cannon
The story of Eddie Ryan is becoming more complex every month as he gears up with his big showdown against BLW’s Chris Andrews on November 26. At the last show, perennial fan favourite Ryan attacked Kid Ref leaving a brutal path of destruction in his wake. This time it was the turn of Jeckel, who was attacked after his contest with Ryan. It’s fair to say that Ryan seems way past breaking point.
3) Scala puts in a gallant effort
One of the best contests of the night saw ‘Savvy’ Sid Scala come up against the inform Joseph Conners. Fresh off an exciting week on WWE TV, the 30 year old Conners, used brute strength to overpower Scala. But, the Savvy one, who’s growing with seemingly each match, showed great courage to fend off his aggressive opponent, even coming close to gaining the victory. But it wasn’t to be as Conners gained the victory.
2) Win or be fired
The Brothers Awe secured their futures in UPW for now, after coming away with a hard fought victory. At UPW’s last show in Weymouth, the popular tandem were issued an ultimatum by UPW owner, Mark Fry, win at the next show or be fired. Much to the fans in attendance delight, The Brothers Awe came away with the victory and will now move on to represent team UPW in Yeovil on November 26.
1) New UPW champion Josh Bodom as chaos ensues
In a night with a lot on the line ‘Dirty’ Dick Riley defended his UPW championship against the ever-impressive Bodom, in a match which was highly competitive but ended in huge controversy. With the bout reaching a fever pitch after Kid Ref got knocked down members of the BLW roster (including the newly acquired Scotty Essex) descended upon the ring to attack the UPW champion, which brought out the UPW roster. With bodies everywhere and action that was out of control BLW owner Lewis Rossiter fired a shot heard around the world, as he struck UPW owner Fry with a steel chair, following that was a brutal chairshot to the head which left Riley laying and gave Bodom a win and the UPW championship. One thing is for sure, November 26 at BLW GrandSlam in Yeovil is an event not to be missed!
