Sammy Scrapper was awarded 'Matman of the Year' for 2019
'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?

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.
'WOW the long awaiting tussle from the rookie Rob and Joey ... a bout of great energy and skill. Great variety of holds and a very sharp bout technically.' 'I am struck by the intensity and aggression shown by both lads.' 'Tough wrestling. I'm impressed by both guys.'
'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.'

'Ronnie is a worthy opponent for Ady. Sammy looks amazing.'
Young Ady & Danny Mettle / Max Morrison & Robyn Hudd / Franky Dare & Daz Taser. The team have outdoor fun with three matches on the beach and in the waves. How many surfboards can you count? A summer special filmed on Ainsdale Beach, Merseyside. Three more matches follow in Part Two!
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!
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. Match sponsored by Mike Tekken.

Sammy Scrapper v Franky Dare. Another chance to see this "Slam & Bridge" themed practice match with Franky learning to bridge the hard way as Sammy enjoys the job of rookie wrecker!
'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)

'I enjoyed the uniform bout - I prefer 'gimmick' matches to more straightforward ones and have a thing for judo gear and also mixed disciplines ...'
'More please from Taekwondo Joe. Looked great in his Judo outfit. Franky performed brilliantly ...'
'I didnt recognise Rob with his clothes on! Great camera work'
Young Ady v Max Morrison in a last man standing type of match. No tap outs, only knock outs. Someone can only win if his opponent stays knocked out for a ten count. Fans of headscissors, chokes and back-breakers will enjoy this one!
'Every minute of this half hour fight to KO is full of promission grappling goodness. Both men look great in their pro gear and Young Ady puts poor Max though the encyclopedia of submission holds. Max is resilient and definitely won't stay down for the count easily. Ady may have to resort to some dirty tricks to put Max away for good! The combo of of these 2 was near perfect. Ady is a great brute and Max sells his suffering extremely well. This is easily in my top 3 from Spotland!' (kosubwrestle.blogspot .com)

Sam Smiler v LJ Silva in another of our series of customised scenarios with a slam & bridge theme filmed in The Loft Studio ring.
'The match is perfect! I love it. The choice of music is hysterical and a very nice touch! Please thank the guys for doing such an awesome job. I appreciate all the effort they put in ... it was fantastic! They really do work well together.' (Cloud One Customs - Sponsor of Building Bridges)
'The starring wrestlers are Sam Smiler (in the yellow trunks) and LJ Silva. As advertised, it features a ton of bodyslams, but the wrestlers dish out other forms of slams and back punishment, so if you're a fan of lift and carry wrestling, this is a fun match to watch. I've been watching Spotland Scrappers off and on for several years now, and Sam is one of my favorite wrestlers on their roster.' (bodyslamfan.blogspot .com)
