On Sunday night Tidal Championship Wrestling returned to Leeds. I was torn between this great show in my hometown and the double header of “Queen of the ring” and “Kirbymania” that southside had on down the road in Sheffield. I’m sure they were both awesome, but I thoroughly enjoyed Tidal and was not disappointed to have made that choice.
The first match pitted the 80 minute man David Graves vs Boris Koslov
It was a great opening match. Comedy elements and some great moves were on show from both wretlers. The crowd had fun and there was an almighty pop when Boris hit a side Russian leg sweep! Boris came out swigging vodka and fave us some great heel work.
Women’s tag match, Xia Brookside and Lizzie Styles vs Little Miss Roxy and Lanarkshire Austin
Superb match, great wrestling on show fromantic all 4 competitors. Xia really lives up to the Brookside name and it’s incredible how God she is at such a young age, I see a bright future for her.
I did, however, think Lana and Roxy stole the show, especially Lanarkshire, who was one of the best heels I’ve seen in a long time, playing the crowd and the ref perfectly.
Armbar superstar Dan James vs HT Drake
Good match but perhaps a tad short. Both player the crowd well and Drake is massively agile and showed some great moves off. Sean Only came out and interfered on behalf of stablemate Dan James and build on a feud for future matches.
Sakamoto vs Liam Slater
Great match. LI am Slater is the Open champion and the title is normally contested under WoS rules in a 3 mine round format, i had been expecting that but this match was in a normal format. I think that is better as thw round format can stifle the match sometimes. There were some really big hitting moves in this match. Liam slater is massively impressive. He’s a high flyer with awesome wrestling ability. Sakamoto is great Japanese strong style wrestle who has some moves that look incredibly painful. Both wrestlers worked the crowd well and the match was very enjoyable.
Xander cooper vs Matt Myers
Good match with some great crowd banter. Myers came out as Sam Zayn and mocked some of his moves which was pretty cool. There was a well worked Low blow finish that build on the great story the wrestling had told.
Jackie Polo vs Ace Mathews
Great heel promo to start from Jackie and he continued to wind up the crowd expertly throughout the match.
It was a good solid match. Great move sets on show from both wrestlers and both worked crowd well. The match was made even beer by David Graves management of Ace.
Tag match – New Nation vs Massimo and Chase.
This was the match I was most looking forward to. New Nation are superb wrestlers who didn’t disappoint.in this match. I’d not seen massimo and chase before, but they worked well against new nation and the styles contrasted really well. Jason Prime was the standout for me in this match, but all 4 wrestlers were great and the match was awesome.
The main event – Rampage Brown vs Wolfgang. Rampage is the current champion and continues to put in fantastic matches. I’d say he was in the top 2 or 3 big UK wrestlers at the moment. Wolfgang is not someone I’d seen before, but he showed that he too is a great wrestler and whoever put these 2 together really gave us all a treat. A great end to a great show.
I can’t wait till today come back on November 20th!
