WWE announce new NXT UK brand, tapings, divisions and GM

WWE came to London with some big news for British Wrestling fans as legendary British wrestler Johnny Saint announced to fans in attendance at the Royal Albert Hall for night one of the 2018 WWE United Kingdom Tournament that the company would be launching their own permanent UK division. The wrestling giants have been flirting with the British scene quite a bit in recent years with the first United Kingdom Championship Tournament taking place last January in Blackpool and building up a relationship with several of the key players in the thriving British scene such as ICW and Progress Wrestling as well as integrating the United Kingdom Championship matches into NXT.

Triple H went on to then give a good amount of information on the new UK brand stating that there would be a NXT UK Women’s division and NXT UK Tag Team division to go alongside the already established WWE UK mens singles championship. The former World Champion also announced that the company had already planned tapings over the next few months around the UK and told the live audience that Johnny Saint would be the brand’s General Manager.

Check out our Review of Night One of WWE UK at the Royal Albert Hall here and NXT Royal Albert Hall/ WWE UKCT Night Two here. Keep your eyes on RebNoise.com and all our social media outlets for a review of the second night at the Royal Albert Hall.

NXT UK Tapings are as follows:

Oct 13 & 14 – Pavilions, Plymouth

Nov 24 & 25 – Olympia, Liverpool

World of Sport Wrestling teams up with Impact for new series

After the success of the New Years Eve special from ITV it has been announced that World of Sport Wrestling will be returning for a 10-part series and will be working alongside Impact Wrestling, the American wrestling promotion aka TNA.

The first World of Sport branded Wrestling event in 30 years gained quite a lot of attention and has shown the ITV bosses that the brand still has some life with a mix of nostalgia and the current strength in the British wrestling scene, which is arguable the best it’s been since the original show ended in 1985. Director of Entertainment, ITV Studios Manchester, Tom Mclennan said “Britain’s wrestling scene is thriving and there has never been a better time to bring it back to ITV after a gap of 30 years”.

American wrestling legend Jeff Jarrett, who recently became the Chief Creative Officer of Impact Wrestling after spending some time away from the company he founded with his father in 2002 has said “The WOS brand is etched in professional wrestling tradition. My family’s lineage in the industry dates back 70-plus years, so I am honoured to revive the legacy of this historic British series“.

It is not currently known what the partnership between ITV and Anthem (owner of Impact Wrestling) will bring and wether or not toe World of Sport show will feature a mixed roster from both countries but this is looking like  a very significant move for both companies and the British wrestling scene in general.

What we do know at the moment is that more will be announced in an upcoming press conference on Monday and the first events will take place in Preston at the intimate Preston Guild
Hall on Thursday 25th May and Friday 26th May with tickets going on pre-sale on April 9th here.

Tyler Bate becomes first ever WWE United Kingdom Champion

On a weekend that was packed full of history making moments a 19 Year old from Dudley, England has cemented his name in the wrestling world forever. Tyler Bate defeated Pete Dunne in the final of the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament in Blackpool to become the first ever WWE UK Champion. The weekend saw many surprises from the controversial finish to the match between Danny Burch and Jordan Devlin in which Burch received a nasty gash to the back of the head which seemed to lead to some confusion as to wether or not the referee missed his kick out attempt in time for the three count to the surprise inclusion of NXT singing Tommy End facing off against Neville in a non-tournament match up.

nevilletommyIt was the 19 year old Tyler Bate who stole headlines in the end though after a tremendous Tournament impressing fans with every segment and match he was involved in.

One of the stars that really shone bright was his final opponent Pete Dunne, who himself had a very newsworthy run in the Tournament after quickly becoming the weekends biggest villain. Dunne started Night 2 of the Tournament with his name on most peoples lips after taking out Joseph Conners at the end of the first event. The “Bruiserweight” went on to beat Conners in the Quarter finals and then successfully defeated the popular Welsh high flyer Mark Andrews in a fantastic Semi Final match.

We have to congratulate WWE on a very well put together weekend of shows and all of the performers who stole the spotlight from the WWE Superstars in America on Raw, Smackdown and NXT.

There have been rumours for years about the UK possibly getting it’s own home grown division within WWE and it previously hadn’t seemed viable but since the rise in attendance, popularity and quality of British independent wrestling over the past few years combined with the growth of the WWE Network after it’s successful attempts at creating other spin off Brands such as NXT, CWC and now 205 Live, it now seems that this could definitely be a venture worth committing to for the Sports Entertainment giants. A British Territory for WWE could be the starting point for the company having fruitful territories all over the world in their biggest markets such as Mexico, Canada and Japan.

There is a full review of the Tournament on this episode of the Talk and Beans podcast.

Make sure you subscribe on iTunes and Soundcloud for updates and new episodes.

Check out the interview below with William Regal, Finn Balor, Robbie Brookside and Neville as they talk about the WWE United Kingdom Championship Tournament and the future of the title,  wether or not Will Ospreay & Marty Scurll were considered, ITV’s World of Sport Wrestling, advice for British Wrestlers, the history of the British style and the future for the WWE UK Championship. Full interviews will be uploaded soon to the Rebellious Noise YouTube channel so make sure you Subscribe to get the content first.

WWE announce two day tournament to crown first ever WWE UK Champion

The WWE have just taken their claim as the world leaders in sports entertainment to the next level by officially announcing in London that they will be holding a two day tournament in Blackpool at the historic Empress Ballroom to crown the first ever WWE United Kingdom Champion. Tickets are already on sale for the event that will take place on Saturday January 14 and Sunday January 15, 2017. We have to admit that this Championship title looks beautiful, it’s got the signature look from this era of the WWE but has a classic and very British feel to it as well with the crest on the centre plate.wweuktitle

Triple H was in attendance at The O2 in London to make this historic announcement as he continues to be the face of all things WWE as far as expansion and development. The 14x WWE Champion has played a major part in things such as the WWE Performance Center, the growth of NXT, the Cruiserweight Classic and consequently the birth of 205 Live.

hhhwweukThe WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events & Creative has also stated that “The tournament is the next step in our ongoing strategy to create localized content for our global WWE Network, develop another brand that engages our passionate fans, and add a new dimension to our on-going storylines.” in a statement released today.

Another man who has been a key figure in those ventures for the WWE has been Britain’s own William Regal, who was also in attendance introducing some of the names we are going to see in January on the WWE Network.

The tournament will feature 16 competitors over two days in a single elimination event and will feature talent from all four of the Home Nations and Ireland. The 16 men that hope to make history are Pete Dunne, Saxon Huxley, Trent Seven, Jack StarzWolfgangRoy Johnson, James DrakeJordan DevlinTyler BateSam Gradwell, Joseph ConnersTyson T. BoneHC DyerDan MoloneyChris TylerRingo RyanTiger Ali and Tucker.

During the press Conference Regal also joked that the location of the two day event may have been so that he could “go home for a few days” to his beloved Blackpool. Another key announcement today was given to us by Senior Broadcaster Michael Cole, who introduced the world to the newest member of the WWE Broadcasting team Nigel McGuinness. The British legend spoke of his personal dream to some day work for the WWE, a passion that has been burning inside the man since he attended Summerslam in 1992 at the old Wembley Stadium.

Tickets for the historic event are now on sale at Ticketmaster and we reckon this is a weekend not worth missing if you are a die hard wrestling fan.
Keep checking back to Rebellious Noise for more information, video of the Press Conference and Interviews with William Regal, Robbie Brookside, Neville and Finn Balor.

ITV to bring back World of Sport Wrestling for special

ITV have announced that for the glory days of British wrestling will be back for one night only later this year. The show will feature British stars such as ‘The East End Butcher’ Sha Samuels, Dave Mastiff and ‘Viper’ Kimberly Benson in a two hour special that will be in front of a live audience. The show will also feature backstage segments that will enhance storylines and will feature arguably the greatest wrestling commentator of all time Jim Ross. The American veteran is sure to add some grandeur and spectacle to the project with his iconic enthusiasm for his work. 
Tom Mclennan, Creative Director, ITV Studios Entertainment said: “World of Sport Wrestling was a major event for millions of families every Saturday afternoon for over 20 years.  I’m excited about bringing back this iconic brand and celebrating the best British wrestlers in the country.”

Why ITV didn’t try and capitalise one the last huge ‘boom era’ of the late 90s/early 2000s has been a question on the minds of every British wrestling fan for years now but we are glad to see it finally happen. The UK scene has been bursting with talent for so long without the mainstream attention it deserved and the past few years in particular has seen many of the UK scenes rising stars make it to the WWE, TNA, NJPW and various worldwide independents, which could have helped shine the light on the UK scene once again for the ITV bosses.

We are excited to see how this plays out and who else will be involved.
