From The Longfield Suite, Prestwich, Manchester.
The seventh visit of Future Shock Wrestling to Prestwich saw a sell out show in front of an excited family crowd. The first half was based around the quarter finals of the Future Shock Trophy Tournament 2014. The winner of this tournament will have the right to a title match at any point during 2015 – Its Future Shock’s version of Money in the Bank.
In the first match a very popular Sam Bailey defeated the weird Noah, who is improving by strides every time he appears, but couldn’t quite match the experience of his opponent.
The second match saw Dave Rayne fell to “Deadly” Damon Leigh who is amongst the most hated characters in Future Shock after he turned on his Wristlock Rovers tag team partner Raynaldo. The antics of the maniacal manager Chris Egan certainly helped Leigh to his victory.
The most heated encounter of the first half was the third semi final between Tyson T Bone and Mark Massa. These two heavyweights slugged it out in a hard hitting and competitive match which the crowd were really into. In the end it was T Bone who got the win, whilst possibly being a little bit uneasy in his role as fan favourite!
The fourth quarter final was between Alex Cynaide and mystery overseas talent Uhaa Nation. The exuberant and crowd friendly Nation performed the amazing feat of picking up and slamming Cyanide but this couldn’t prevent the Toxic Terror from winning. TNA are missing out on something special in Cyanide.
The first half also included a very brief Womens Championship match between Champion Danni Hunter and no 1 Contender, the beautiful Lana Austin. This match ended in a disqualification due to the interference of members of The Uprising. This gave the opportunity for Jack Gallagher to exchange words with Xander Cooper in preparation for their main event match later in the evening.
During the interval Uhaa Nation posed for photos in the ring at a price cheaper than that offered by certain other promotions.
After the interval came the first of what will be three Triple Threat Matches to find three contenders for the new Future Shock Adrenalin Title. This is an exciting new tournament format from Future Shock and if the first match is anything to go by it will be a winning formula. Competing this time were Sparx, Henry T Grodd and Sonner Dursen. This was an action packed encounter with the disgruntled Sparx struggling to make an impact against the strangely compelling Grodd and the winner of the macth, Sonner Dursen. Dursen definitely lived up to his status as Fighting Spirit Magazine’s ‘one to watch’.
The latest chapter in the on going tag team war between the Blackpool Blondes and the Models saw the decision going to the Models. The tag matches between these two teams are always full of thrills and this time the gorgeous Melanie Price played her part with a well aimed stiletto kick to the unmentionable parts of one of the Blondes. The Models are a really well co ordinated tag team and other promotions have really missed out by having them split up and turn on each other. Hot Stuff Joey Hayes and Delicious Danny Hope have many more miles in them as a top tag team.
The Main event between Jack Gallagher and Champion Xander Cooper ended in chaos with the intervention of The Uprising, The Models and Zack Gibson. This enabled Cooper to retain his title and also provided the most spectacular moment of the night when Gallagher launched himself at the Uprising and the referee outside the ring.
The crowd left the building happy after yet another brilliant night of Future Shock Wrestling
