David Hitman v Joey Delgado in a customised variation on an ironman match, where the guys wrestle for up to 30 minutes with multiple falls. After each fall the wrestlers have a ten count to get to their feet and return to the corner, at which point the match resumes. A wrestler who is unable to return to their corner before the count of ten loses the match; otherwise the winner is the wrestler who secures the most falls in 30 minutes.

'This turned out about as close to perfect as possible. You delivered every moment I asked for, and the inbetween action was better than anything I could have devised myself. Joey and David used holds wonderfully, and Alex was a great referee, creating exactly the ironman format I asked for. Thank you all so much!'

'Jack always at home at the Loft and Joey really shone throughout the bout, a very quick learner ... pass on my compliments to both the lads for a very enjoyable bout ... good entertainment.'
'... a very good match and a special note for Joey who was remarkable for his first pro game! A little stressed at the beginning, he let go and placed good holds. Facing Jack more used to this kind of fight, Joey was at the top level. I am impatient to see his second pro fight. Great show! We want more!'
'... put a real smile on my face ... loved Joey getting racked.'
Franky Nadara v Joey Delgado has the hallmarks of a classic teacher / pupil rumble but Franky will have to work hard to tame his student who scores well for effort as both guys display a range of wrestling skills under The Loft spotlights.
'Nadara shows why he is very talented. It was a good lesson in wrestling moves, very smooth transitions. Joey has a great work ethic, and no matter how well he gets pinned or submitted, he just keeps coming back for more and wanting to get into it again. Great attitude.' 'One of the best you've taped.'
'... good gear and tussle ... even a bit of surfing'.
'The pair of them make a thoroughly entertaining match, and Joey is simply irrepressible.'

'I just purchased ring missions 3 and the two bouts were excellent. They were entertaining and exciting.'
'Loved the second match, Hitman is so good, nasty arm locks and used the ring well with some good throws from both. More David in the ring with more throws to weaken an opponent before his arm locks.'

'two of my favourites'
'If you were to ask me who are my favorite guys on the Spotland roster, brothers Ady and Sammy would be at the top of that list. They have faced off several times in a variety of match types and scenarios and we are treated once again to what looks to be an exciting promission mat battle! While they have had aggressive matches, this one (while still a serious competition) shows the guys sharing a few laughs in between tap-outs, reminiscing and teasing each other.
This is another Spotland match that will definitely be a hit for submission lovers. Unique holds and surprising reversals will keep you guessing all the way to the end!
Treat yourself to this match featuring 2 of the most underrated promission grapplers underground wrestling has to offer! You won't be disappointed!' (kosubwrestle.blogspot .com)
Rob Palomino v Jack Nero in a hard-hitting fast-paced bout scheduled for 10 x 3min rounds. A classic two out of three falls or submissions to decide the winner. Will the ref spot Rob’s nasty tactics or will it be a case of Nero to Zero for Jack?
Sponsored by The Welsh Warrior.
Our Most Popular Pro Style Match in 2019.
'I believe everything I asked for went in to it. The public warnings and dirty tactics make it fun to watch.'
'... lived up to all expectations. Well done.'
'Great bout lots of my favourite holds like headscissors, headlocks.
I like Palomino's cocky aggressive attitude and his rule bending - standing on his opponent's hand, boot to groin whilst Nero is trapped upside down against the corner post, punch whilst Nero is in a headlock and illegal use of the ropes.
I like Palamino's repeated single leg Boston attempts in Round 4 especially the close up shots when he has Nero in the hold near the ropes and camera.'
Franky Dare v Max Morrison in a sporting but fiercely competitive match. Franky is out to prove a point against Max who makes his long-awaited pro debut. In an enticing bout scheduled for 8x3min rounds, who will have their hand raised at the end?
'Thoroughly enjoyed. Fast and energetic wrestling with well executed moves and weakeners.'
'The indian deathlock submission move, the guillotine applied and well done too.'
'A good even bout between two newcomers. Plenty of nice holds especially some of the headlocks and strangleholds. And Dare has a great abominal stretch on Morrison at one point. I particularly liked the interesting submission holds Morrison gets on Dare towards the end of the bout, stretching his body in a variety of punishing ways.
As both wrestlers are of a similar build and look a bit alike, I think they would make a good tag team pairing in matching trunks and boots. Just a suggestion for the future.'
Young Ady (Champion) v Rob Palomino Two stars from our roster fight it out in a thrilling match as Rob Palomino challenges Young Ady for the coveted Spotland Scrappers Pro Wrestling Championship title. This really is a clinic for high quality Brit Pro. Will power and experience win the day or will Rob finally make it to the top of the mountain?
'Absolutely loved Lords of The Loft. The pace of the action and moves right from the beginnning. Rob was so quick and agile, able to counter almost every move.Ady still has the strength moves and excellent wrestling skills. Both would have been stars in the 70s.'
'This is a fast-paced pro battle. The guys go all out and they're pretty skilled. I thought Ady might be a heel but he's not really. He's got a bad boy vibe but he doesn't really cheat. Fresh-faced Rob is a tough babyface. He a good guy but is more than willing to go rough when he needs to.
One thing that impresses me is the counters and reversals. The guys never just take abuse. Their time on top has to be earned. I like this style as it adds to the sense that anything can happen, as well as making the fight feel more intense. In the end, this is a really good pro-style match. The wrestling is solid, the guys are studs and drama is high. It's fast but not too fast. I like both guys but definitely prefer seeing young Rob receive punishment from Ady. However, Rob's capability as a wrestler is part of his charm, so I'm glad it's not a squash. The finale with the belt presentation is a great topper to an entertaining battle.'

Rob Palomino v Joey Eden "a small matter that could lead to a bigger dispute" sees two lads from the Spotland stable in an entertaining Brit Pro contest. Rob Palomino in only his second match takes on the more experienced Joey Eden. Referee Nigel Crabtree applies the Mountevans Rules.

'I've been browsing through the archives and this was one of my favourite matches ... fun to watch ... surprised how easily Joey got Rob up in the surfboard ... really skillfull performance from the lads.'
'One of the best surboard combinations ... Joey took Rob to the beach'

Al Rosso v Gypsy Tom in Spar King Cloggers 1 a match blending body punching and grappling styles. + Spar King Taggers Sammy Scrapper & Joey Delgado v Gypsy Tom & David No Pasa in an energetic tag match. Sammy gives our new breed (and you!) a taste of a mixed fighting style harking back to the days of Punching Bryan at Spotland Mill. Filmed close to the action in The Loft Studio ring.
Max Morrison v Danny Mettle The guys are wearing fingerless gloves, ankle boots and boxing shorts in this scenario. Little Danny can just about reach up and hang from the frame of the punching bag stand, while Max tests his abs. The two switch positions, then the action spills into the ring with more ab punching and grappling. Eventually one of them is caught in a sleeper hold, and wakes up tied to the punchbag frame!
Ray Junior v LJ Silva This is more of a fantasy fighting scenario than a wrestling match with punches and grappling/chokes rather than wrestling/submission holds. Ray and Silva are known as the best fighters in their regions. Both guys are too cocky to share such a title, so they decide to meet up and fight it out. They’ve agreed to a best out of three fights, with the winner declared by knocking out his opponent. The last man standing wins, and can proudly claim to be the better fighter once and for all. Both guys are confident they'll be the one walking away victorious.

'The stars of this match are smaller guys Sammy Scrapper and Franky Dare. In the world of British style pro-wrestling, which brings to my mind images of pasty, flabby, and toothless skin-headed dudes, Sammy and Franky easily qualify as pretty boys. And Sammy shows that you can be both a pretty boy and a heel as he dominates Franky for most of this match. This is another good production by Spotland Scrappers for those of us who like lift and carry wrestling.' (bodyslamfan.blogspot .com)
