>Zack Gibson
>Joe Coffey
>Gentleman Jack Gallagher
>Dave Mastiff
>El Ligero
>Joseph Conners
>Amir Jordan
>Kenny Williams

I think the tournament will be good but at the same time it was designed to kill WoS so it's conflicting.

So happy for Zack Gibson.

WWE is cancer, but he was never used right on the indies anyway. He's better than the Peaky Blinder wannabes they already have signed from the UK, and his charisma and mic skills will make him stand out. He's a better heel than 99% of the WWE roster.

A real heel is a rarity nowadays, where everybody wants to be a "cool heel" who gets cheered

I'm familiar with everyone but Amir Jordan and that's honestly pretty fucking solid so far. Is there any word on who is filling the other half of the field? I honestly forgot this tournament was even happening, so I've really not kept up.

I heard rumblings that Travis Banks signed a UK deal so he could be in it but that's weird because he's from New Zealand.

Good to see Gibson finally get a bit more exposure, the fella has been the best wrestler in the UK for a few years now but he's always been in the shadow of ZSJ, Scurll and Ospreay Hoping Haskins gets a spot in the next 8 to be announced.

Amir does a lot of shows in the north, ive seen him at a lot of leeds shows. pretty decent too someone still relatively a rookie. think hes in as 'suprising outsider' i imagine they might put him in against ligero

>but i'll get to see more "strong style" workrate from the same british cruiserweights i already watch plus a handshake from HHH

Solid field so far. Glad Zack Gibson is in.

The other half is being revealed on Friday. I could see Chris Brookes get in.

Gibson is one of the very few indie guys I think is better off in WWE. He's a damn good promo, he's actually tall and imposing, he can work a match without tons of indie spots, and PROGRESS has been mostly squandering him for a long time now. If WWE has even half a fuck to give about the UK Title then Zack is the guy to get it and hold it for a long time.

In terms of the tournament, I'm only interested in the potential Gibson vs Gallagher and Coffey vs Mastiff matches, maybe Gibson/Mastiff.

Surely Gibson is winning this. Best on the mic, in the ring and he's tall. Absolutely wasted in progress over the years.

I can imagine Regal falling in love with Gibson when he watches him.

Think Mastiff could win though and be a monster heel

Be interesting to see if they get the same sweet deals as Dunne, Tyler and Trent got last year or whether these guys will have more restrictions on them.

I wish another wrestling like NJPW could secretly fund WOS to hire wrestlers, starting a proxy war

Half these guys were in the ITV WOS pilot, right? I wonder if that says anything about the situation of that project.

It would be hillarious if it turned out that whoever is booking this actually realises that pushing Gibson is the correct choice. It's mindbogling that this guy's career isn't like 10x more successful.

I never really got this criticism. All three of British Strong Style are from the Midlands, which is where Peaky Blinders is based and they only ever appeared in the garb in a couple of promos for Progress.

Here's a rundown of the whole UK situation from WON (via Circlejerk)

>Wade Barrett is a commentator and authority figure for WoS

>Will Ospreay, Davey boy jr.- Grado, Moose, Primate, Joe Hendry, Martin Kirby, Iestyn Rees, Viper, Kay Lee Ray, Bea Priestly, Sha Samuels, Doug Williams, Rampage Brown, Lionheart, Nathan Cruz, Kip Sabian, Robbie X, Adam Maxted, Gabriel Kidd, CJ Banks and Liam Slater are the top names for WoS

>The wrestling was much better than the pilot show from what Dave was told

>Grado was still featured but they are no longer building the show around him. He's more like a mascot for kids. The top guys are better workers

>Will Ospreay v Davey boy jr is the biggest match

>the show is starting around July 21st

>They'll most likely decide around 4 shows in from the ratings if it'll be renewed

>Rev Pro are no longer allowed to use WWE UK guys

>WWE have signed roughly 20 new performers to keep them away from ITV ( Toni Storm, Joe Coffey, Zach Gibson, Dave Mastiff, El Ligero, Travis Bahks, Chris Brookes, Jinny, Kenny Williams, Flash Morgan Webster and Eddie Dennis are named)

>12 of the 20 were originally scheduled to work for ITV

>WWE can back out of the contract at the 4 or 8 month mark (Dave doesn't say this, but to me that suggests if WoS flops, the UK division is no longer a priority)

No Haskins or Havoc for either company yet? Surprised Ospreay is allowed on WOS

I mean both the WWE UK and WOS rosters are diverse in terms of wresting talent and abilities but man this just gonna split the UK indie scene into two with ICW and PROGRESS vs. RevPro and everyone else.

I know Jimmy Havoc is wrestling on TV on MLW Fusion but I feel like given his background and his character, it wouldn’t thrive in WWE and WOS. Not sure what’s up with Mark Haskins but he’d certainly be someone that would be at the top of the list for wrestling for either one of those promotions. I don’t believe Will Ospreay is an NJPW contracted wrestler like Zack Sabre Jr. is now and since he’s not contracted by any company with a TV deal, then it’s probably okay for him to work WOS.

The main conflict for me is that they've done fuck all with the UK guys outside of the occasional Pete cameo on NXT. I just fear this is more of the same and all it's doing is stopping a couple of companies who dare to put on a wrestling show outside of America from using them. Surely WWE should want WoS to succeed? Returning wrestling fans in the UK will go look for WWE stuff if they catch the bug again, while WoS has zero threat of hurting their US market. If people were turning off WWE anyway, they've already gone somewhere else like NJPW.

Did Primate not retire recently due to injuries?

Yo this UK Tournament needs some.more veteran preformers who have been traveling on the road to teach these indie cruiserweights what type of style they'll end up doing once they sign their souls to the corporation
