Revolution Pro Wrestling a promotion that prides itself on using the best names in British wrestling mixed in with the best indy stars of the US. They have had a great year in 2015 and produced some of the best matches on UK soil in quite some time.
I attended two shows from Rev-Pro in 2015 which were Summer Sizzler in June and Uprising in October and both shows were outstanding from top to bottom. The shows took place in the legendary east London venue The York Hall in Bethnal Green which is the same venue that held FWA events Uprising in 2002 which featured AJ styles first UK appearance against UK veteran Johnny Storm and also the infamous Frontiers of Honor show from May 2003 which featured names such as Styles, Christopher Daniels, Low-Ki and Samoa Joe so the excitement of being in such a historic venue was already there from the outset.
The fact that Will Ospreay cracked my top 4 shows the kind of year this young man has had. His performances are always outstanding and he has incredible athletic ability and is up there with Ricochet as the best cruiserweight in the world. Will against dream opponents such as AJ styles, Matt Sydal and Okada are all amazing matches and are must see in my opinion. The atmosphere was electric as evidence by the “OSPREAY – OSPREAY -OSPREAY” chants from 2,000 strong all night long. This shows what a superstar Ospreay is and I expect huge things from him in 2016.
The excitement in October 2015 was even more so for me when I attended uprising as this was the show that brought the best from New Japan to the UK and I was able to see names like Jushin liger, Tanahasi, Okada, Nakamura and AJ Styles in person. It was a one of a kind experience to see such legends and they put on some great performances over two shows in October.
The above matches again are all must see and you can purchase and watch these from anywhere in the world via www.revolutionprowrestling.com/ondemand
2016 again looks to be a huge year for Rev-Pro with their High Stakes 2016 show which I will be attending featuring matches such as AJ Styles vs Zack Sabre Jr which will be a first time dream match, Will ospreay vs Marty Scurll and Big Damo vs ‘Speedball’ Mike Bailey (making his Rev-Pro debut) who has been killing it on the US indy scene in 2015 in PWG and CZW.
