Pro Wrestling Pride Taunton Results 24 Jan 2016

Pro Wrestling Pride Undisputed Taunton Results 24 Jan 2016

1st show to 2016 and we are in Taunton, Somerset for Pro Wrestling Pride Undisputed. This is a loaded card with WWE legend Tatanka, NJPW Bullet Club Leader Kenny Omega, TNA Superstar Robbie E and ROH Donovan Dijak.

The show is totally packed out tonight and there must be 600 people in Attendance  if not a bit more. It was great to see the venue so packed and to hear the crowd buzzing in anticipation of the nights action.

The show was quality total quality in fact there was such much great talent on it and the expectation level was high from fans and I think those expectations were met. There were some stellar matches at Pro Wrestling Pride last night.

An amazing heavyweight contest Between Big Grizzly and Donovan Dijak which was hard hitting and really set the tone for the night which man came out as winner the Pro Wrestling Pride Champ or ROH Rising star?

This was followed up with a 3 vs 2 tag team match pitting Chris Andrews and Adam Da Sliva against the odds against their opponents Danny Duggan, James Baker and Sammy Smooth Were Andrews and Da Silva able to overcome those odds?.

It was billed as a dream match and that it was Ultimo Tiger vs Bullet Club Leader Kenny Omega both men were put there to prove who was the best but who won?

Nadia Sapphire met Japanese Star Hikaru Shida for the first time who came out the undisputed top lady in Taunton?

Scotty Essex told Robbie E that Robbie has something to prove to him in the ring did Scotty Defeat the impact Wrestling star or did Robbie E shut the mouth of Mr Reem?

In a huge 6 man Main Event tag team match WWE legend Tatanka teamed with Darren Saviour and Eddie Ryan to face Uk Dominator, Lomaxx and Gideon what happened when these two brilliant teams collided?

To find out what happened in these matches read on Below to see the match result and pictures to go with it

Can Impact Wrestling Make a Bang on Pop TV in 2016?

Can Impact Wrestling Make a Bang on Pop TV in 2016?

Impact Wrestling logo on POP TV
TNA Impact Wrestling found a new home on Destination America in 2015 but as 2015 comes to a close Destination America chose not to renew Wrestling on their Network and Impact Wrestling had to find a new home.

Thankfully they have found a new home thanks to POP TV. Having Impact is important. Its important for Wrestling Business and for the people that are in it. Well done to Dixie Carter and her team at Impact Wrestling from negotiating the move and securing the future of the program.

TNA Impact Wrestling Owner Dixie Carter

 TNA Impact Wrestling will be debuting on POP TV in January 5th 2015 with a huge Live episode with the Semi finals and finals of their World Title series eventually crowning a brand new TNA Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion.

TNA will be looking to new stars to step it up even more in 2016 than they did in 2015. TNA lost a lot of established talent in 2015 So Impact needs to build new talent in 2016 and the debut on Pop TV gives them the opportunity to do that.

There are high expectations for TNA Wrestlers in 2016. EC3 Ethan Carter has been tremendous in 2015 and to me is now established as a top star along with Bobby Lashley, Matt Hardy and More. It’s a shame for TNA that Kurt Angle will be leaving the company and is having his farewell tour in January in the UK Kurt Angle is always been great to watch and has always been so entertaining.

Kurt Angle

So with these changes taking place more wrestlers take a step into the main event in 2016 and mix it up with top of the card in Impact Wrestling. The wrestlers I'm talking about that I would like to see more in Impact Wrestling main event picture  Rockstar Spud, Robbie E, Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards.

I have managed to see all of these men not just in Impact Wrestling but seen all also in Pro Wrestling Pride a promotion in Devon England where I live in 2015. As always this is my opinion as a wrestling fan I'm not a wrestling expert and don't proclaim to be one! This is jus my opinion on what I think.

I believe This group have so much to offer and I believe could be key to a successful 2016 for Impact Wrestling. They are loyal to the company and they have a blend to great wrestling skill, entertainment and engaging the audience.

Rockstar Spud

Rockstar Spud has so much charisma and personality he connects with the audience so well and above all he is entertaining to watch and has an ability to make people laugh and smile but make them feel for him and care about his character. To me watching him that is something that is so unique today.

 Rockstar spud is a multi faceted athlete with so many different complexities and intricacies  to his character that he can adapt to many different situations. Whether it was being Madam Dixie chief of Staff or Being The Ultimate Underdog Rockstar Spud is a tremendous talent and someone to keep your eyes on and could well make himself a full time main event player in 2016.
Robbie E

Robbie E is someone who I think is right on the verge of becoming a top star for Impact Wrestling. Robbie needs the right feud to show what he can do. He has come such a long way since Jersey Show gimmick and he has built himself tremendously into the wrestler he is today.

He has evolved and changed when he has needed too and continues to do so. Robbie E Evolution has been great and I believe he can be a future impact wrestling world champion look out for him in 2016 on POP TV.

The Wolves
I think the Wolves are a tremendous team they work together so well, they make things look effortless in the ring together, and I saw them live and they were even better than they looked on TV – totally Brilliant I hope TNA eventually split these two so that each can then create a defined character to take themselves forward as singles wrestlers – I think they could both add a lot to TNA at the top of the card.

In terms of Technical skill you wont find anyone better than Richards and Edwards.

TNA using their talented roster alongside some exciting compelling Story lines could means great news for them going forward. Pop TV Has a much bigger reach than Destination America had previously and all those things combined could mean a bang on POP TV in 2016.

I will enjoy watching to find out
