Being back in Barrhead last Sunday was not quite everything we had hoped it would be. In fact, it was even better! In a lot of ways Barrhead feels like home for PBW and we could not have been happier to be bringing wrestling back to the Foundry. 

At the very beginning of the show, Jack Jester challenged PBW Champion, Stevie Xavier to a match for the title after he was unable to compete in Dumbarton due to injury. Being a fighting champ, Xavier accepted and the two faced each other in the main event. At one point, it seemed as though Jester may have it in the bag after Xavier appeared to aggravate an old knee injury. Jester attempted to set up for his tombstone piledriver but just in the nick of time, Xavier slid down his back, spun him around and hit a devastating super kick for the win.

Another highlight of the evening was seeing Lou King Sharp attempt to take on the unequivocal, Viper. Despite Viper collecting accolades worldwide, Sharp arrogantly believed he would be able to beat her easily. As I’m sure you can guess, this was not the case. A highly entertaining match ensued with the victory naturally going to the Vixen of Violence.

A special mention should also go to the young men who participated in the PBW Academy Showcase 6-man tag. They all gave it their very best and did the Academy proud. If anyone over the age of 12 is also interested in training to become a professional wrestler, more information about our academies can be found at Beginners are more than welcome.

Let's not forget the most important part of the whole show- raising money for two incredible charities! We were delighted to learn that a fantastic £3200 was raised from the event, with an equal £1600 going to each charity. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul Mcilvenny and everyone at the Include Me 2 Club and Anipals for all of their hard work and doing such an amazing job.

With the show being such a success we wouldn’t rule out the possibility of it becoming an annual event, so fingers crossed we see you back in Barrhead again soon!
