Hi guys, there’s not that much news around this week so with Adam away rather than do a show on my own, I’ll just rundown a list of things here and we’ll be back next week where we’ll both talk about PROGRESS Chapter 9 that takes place this coming Sunday and I’m sure Adam will talk about the IPW-UK show from last Sunday which saw Chris Hero return to the UK to face Zack Sabre Jr.
However, there will be some audio uploaded this week this will be an interview with Eddie Kingston from a while back. The Indy Corner has had a few incarnations and one was when I used to do the show with Duckman of the MFX Podcast. I organised the interview but it was pretty much conducted by Duckman so look for that on your iTunes or Stitcher feed and of course over at http://theindycorner.podomatic.com
I’d just better post the results for the IPW-UK show for those who missed them –
1. Jonny Storm retained the All-England title over Marty Scurll & Mark Haskins
2. Rampage Brown defeated Kris Travis
*Earls Court: Danny Garnell comes out and challenges Earl Jonathan Windsor to a match, Windsor attacks Garnell and chokes him with a tie*
3. Danny Garnell defeated Earl Jonathan Windsor
4. Dave Mastiff defeated Prince Devitt
5. IPW-UK champion Paul Robinson defeated The Mexican Eagle
6. The London Riots WIN the IPW-UK tag team titles from The Bhangra Knights after Darrell Allen turned on RJ Singh
7. Zack Sabre Jr. defeated Chris Hero

Followers of The Indy Corner facebook page may of seen a post I put up recently where I stated I may have something British, more so Futureshock fans may be interested in well I am going to keep you guessing a little bit more, it is a competition and when Adam is back next week we’ll announce what the prize is and what you need to do to enter it.
And ANOTHER show that will take place on the 26th will be ICW’s annual Square Go, matches announced for this one, of course there is the annual Square Go, a 30 man over the top rope battle royal where 5 random entrants will be given weapons. Onto not so crazy matches, ICW Heavyweight Champion Jack Jester will defend against Prince Devitt, in a 30 minute Iron Man match Joe Coffey will take on James Scott and Andy Wild will take on Jackie Polo.
Fight Club: PRO of course return on Friday 31st of January at The Planet in Wolverhampton with ‘Resolution’, announced for the show is The Hunter Brothers taking on the returning ‘Dynamite’ Pete Dunne and the debuting ‘White Lightning’ Mark Andrews, also announced, former champion MK McKinnan will be taking on Wild Boar. Both these contests should be great. I expect 2 more matches to be announced before the show but if you can, try and make it to Fight Club: PRO if you have not been before.
Great Bear Promotions return on February 15th with their next show ‘Hamburger Hinderer’ at Sandbach Town Hall, Sandbach, they have recently announced that the returning Jonathon Gresham will be facing Joshua Bodom, this should be a very exciting match indeed. Other matches on the show are CJ Banks vs Zack Sabre Jr and Great Bear Grand Champion Damon Leigh defending against Chris Brookes. Seriously, Banks vs Sabre Jr has all the potential to be a match of the year contender, both guys are amazing workers.
