from those early matches through to Live At The Loft Shows

"as a fan I was not sure how Twist and Shout would flow
but well done Lomax and Sammy, totally different pace to Tale of Woe.
Sammy excels well in bouts where he's using his skills and the focus on pins made the bout even,
with Lomax using Steve Grey knee tactics and illegal use of the ropes in working the leg
kept the home crowd on their toes, and the boys have a female following now!"

It's David Cuplu's turn for a crack at the belt currently held by Young Ady 

Young Ady v David Cuplu
Referee Nigel Crabtree
"The long awaited rematch for a crack at the belt by David Cuplu
full of bravado and confidence as he makes his entrance.
After his tangle in Attic Attack he tries to get the match going at his pace to weaken the champ
but Ady has none of it and a Johnny Kidd knee back breaker early on
sends out the signal that he wont get his own way.
David gets lucky when he can reach the top rope to get out of one of Ady's trademark surfboards.
A nice slow paced Brit Pro style bout with plenty of holds from both wrestlers
that the knowledgeable Loft audience enjoyed."

"Really very good."

"Great to see Joey back in action with Gypsy Joe in a very active and entertaining bout ..." 
 "Watching the bout brought back memories from my visit when you see the pinfall move that I was taught
and seeing the correct way to do the body slam ... amazing what you can pick up in the Spotland experience."
 "Thank you for the prompt delivery of my latest DVD.
Really enjoyed the two energetic Brit Pro bouts featuring outstanding performances by GJ and LJS.
Ray Junior always gives of his best and likeable Joey is always a pleasure to watch.
Congratulations to all the team. Can't wait for more of the action."

"Spotland Slamdown - loved this match as bodyslams one of my favourites.
Fast and well paced jobber-heel scenario with cheeky confidence from Gypsy Joe.
Love the flexing his bicep as he slams his hapless opponent yet again. Brilliant!"

"A really fantastic Brit Pro match, brilliant wrestling and wow no one executes the surfboard better than Young Ady,
that's why Spotland Scrappers are the best."

"Really enjoyed the 'World Of Sport' style Title Belt match between the lads.
Plenty of collar and elbow locks leading into some great technical moves and counters.
Ady reeling off the 3 in 1 Zoltan Boscik hold ...

Ady showed his wealth of experience with holds whilst Yourek was just managing to stay with him.
The final fall came from the Steve Grey v Richie Brooks era with the pin fall nearly coming from the suspended surfboard

... enjoyed that combination attempt but was only a matter of time before the closure ...
well contested and sporting approach from the lads which came across throughout the bout."

"Really enjoyed the Ady v Jack match,
a top quality, hard fought contest featuring lots of finely executed Brit Pro moves.
Loved Jack's entrance into the ring, and Ady's submission move in Round Four.
Ady's stamina and skill inevitably overpowered Jack, who courageously took a lot of punishment.
Would like to see more of Jack at The Loft.
Ady's always magical in the ring, bringing back memories of World of Sport."

"Franky coped well and seemed to enjoy the bout."


"Admiral-Lord Mountevans rules are a set of professional wrestling rules mainly used in British wrestling.
They were named after Edward Evans, 1st Baron Mountevans, who chaired a committee in 1947
to write a unified set of rules for professional wrestling in the British Isles, defining what holds were legal and how a fall could be scored.
The style of wrestling under the Mountevans rules was advertised by promoters as Modern Freestyle Wrestling."


All the Best to our Referee Mr Nigel Crabtree on his special Birthday!
