Well there is the Combat Sports Channel which starts on Sky in August, it's already announced that Pro Wrestling NOAH, and New Japan will be broadcast, as well as K-1.

 

Now here comes the rumours, FWA, CZW and NWA-TNA, have all stated recently that they are close to getting TV deals in the UK. Thus, is it possible these could all be on this channel???

I'm over the moon about NJPW and Pro Wrestling NOAH - if it features CZW and NWA-TNA then I'm a happy man :)

 

I'm already happy about K-1 - means I can get to watch Mirkovic "Cro Cop" Flipovic.

I think that this is great news for any fan of combat sports. even greater news that now english veiwers can now get a glimpse at the Japanese promotions, etc. If NWA:TNA also sign up then it will be fantastic.

quick run down

 

ROH (told you...you heard it here first), CZW, XPW (booo) and OVW!!!! have been contacted about screening shows.

 

80s wrestling will be shown (w00t!)

 

New Japan and Noah will be a feature

 

FWA and Irish Whip will have shows

 

Hammerlock however won't

 

a Mexican promotion has also been contacted.

 

More promotions will be announced at a later date.

I've got a feeling that the channel will struggle to fill a full day's schedule.

 

Obviously you can't show XPW or CZW shows at 3pm, and it's not every day that a MMA company puts out a show. So I've got a feeling you're going to see a lot of repeats during the day, before a lot more of the risqué promotions can be shown at night.

 

That is unless the Combat Sports channel have managed to get a massive tape library, filled with old matches/shows from the promotions they show.

 

But with all that quality wrestling available in the UK, it makes me sad that I have Telewest. Still, I wouldn't give up my 1MB Broadband for all the wrestling in the world.

As I said to someone on MSN, ROH have produced at least 54 hours of shows so far with another 4/5/6 shows left to go, cut those down to 1 hour shows and you have 54 shows..

 

The NJPW video library is extensive (as we all know).

 

The FWA will only allow the most recent events to be shown (starting from Octobers Uprising)

 

80s wrestling could be anything

 

I don't think any of us expected a 24 hour channel just yet, maybe in a few years time (I don't expect the channel to last that long to be honest) the channel could be 24 hours....I hope they do have some MMA though.

The channel wouldn't neccesarily have to fill a full days schedule, it could maybe kick off at 7pm each night or so.

And yet no one has contacted MLW... doomed to failure I tell ya. :P

 

Although I must express sheer disappointment that a show dominantly featuring Raven, Vampiro, Steve Corino and Super Crazy hasn't even been considered.

 

 

But hey, TNA have been contacted. If they get TNA and maybe some more jap feds, I'll watch it, otherwise I won't.

Technically though Draven if all the promotions who Verby mentioned do get shown, then you will see Raven for XPW/NWA-TNA/ROH, Corino for ROH/NWA-TNA, Crazy for XPW and possibly Vamp for like EMLL.

 

Also might point out, it is a combat sports channel, thus means more than wrestling, i.e. possibly boxing, martial arts, sumo wrestling, kickboxing, thus wrestling wouldn't take up all the time. Either way if having XPW, NJPW, Pro Wrestling NOAH, Ring Of Honor, FWA, Irish Whip, CZW, NWA-TNA, K-1 and something lucha, and something from the 1980's to choose from, it's not like you hacen't got the widest possiblr spectrum of wrestling to choose from.

 

Shoot fights, lucha libre, puroresu, garbage wrestling, X-Division, old southern brawling, UK style, high flying, comedy matches, strong style, every possible style you can get. Something for everyone.
