WWE has announced a raft of non-WWE talent for WrestleMania Axxess.

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

WrestleMania Axxess matches to feature Superstars from NXT, 205 Live, the U.K. Championship Tournament, PROGRESS and Insane Championship Wrestling

Live, in-ring action is an annual tradition of WrestleMania Axxess, but this year’s fan celebration features an even more exciting and diverse talent lineup than ever.

 

For the first time in history, Superstars from not only NXT, but also WWE 205 Live, the U.K. Championship Tournament, PROGRESS Wrestling and Insane Championship Wrestling (ICW) will compete at Axxess.

 

WWE 205 Live is home to the ring’s top Cruiserweights, and the groundbreaking, critically-acclaimed U.K. Championship Tournament, held over the course of two nights in January, shined a light on the United Kingdom’s toughest competitors. London-based PROGRESS Wrestling and Glasgow, Scotland-based ICW, meanwhile, represent the first non-WWE promotions to have their competitors be featured at Axxess.

 

Check out the match lineup below, and don’t wait to secure your spot at Axxess. This year’s WrestleMania Axxess runs Thursday, March 30 to Sunday, April 2 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. Tickets are available now at Ticketmaster.com.

In unexpected news, Axel Dieter Jr. is leaving wXw at the end of the month to head overseas. NXT is the rumour going round and obviously the most likely.

 

All the best for him, but it's kind of a bummer because I feel his story and the Ringkampf story didn't climax properly and he certainly had a lot more to go as a singles competitor. Both he and Walter also started a great run for PROGRESS too.

 

He's really going to leave a gap for wXw but the future is bright.

Looking at the article and the photos, here a few names that took part:

 

- Jurn Simmons

- Marius Al-Ani

- BT Gunn

- Stevie Boy

- Martin Kirby

- Flash Morgan Webster

- Travis Banks

- TK Cooper

- Chris Brookes

- Adam “Flex” Maxted

- Juvenile X

- T-K-O

- Josh Bodom

- Chris Tyler

- Sadie Gibbs

- "Big Grizzly" Steve Griffiths

- Liam Thomson

- Ivan Kostadinov

Happy that they've got the opportunity but if Jurn Simmons and Marius Al-Ani leave wXw, I'll be a sad bunny. Jurn is on fire and Marius hasn't used his full potential yet.

Happy for #CCK, TK Cooper and Flash though.

Yeah I saw that, any other CZW guys on tour in England? Figure if CCK isn't going over the pond for a small tour then Scarlet and Graves will get them back eventually. Still, totally unexpected.

 

In other news, Toni Storm became the first PROGRESS Ladies Champion yesterday after beating Jinny and Laura Di Matteo in Day 2 of the Super Strong Style 16 Tournament and Trent Seven lost in the first round to Matt Riddle via submission in 6 Seconds! :omg: He shall now be known as Trent Six. :D

 

And how about this. Grado and Joe Coffey have got their opponents for ICW Shugs Hoose Party 4. Sha Samuels and for one night only Noam Dar!

What crocks of shit the people behind 5-Star Wrestling are.

 

Using a terror attack as an excuse to wrestlers as to why they had to cancel 15 shows in massive arenas. They're still selling tickets for the events too and haven't even made an announcement. Silly enough, that their CM Punk/1 Million Dollars backfired on them, how on earth did they think they could pull this off? Feel bad for the fans, who have been ripped off by these slimeballs.

 

Brit Wrestling is flourishing and they're still some shitheads around like it's still the 2000's.
