This week I have been trying to figure out the card for November when we welcome Ring Of Honor a US based company to Preston.
Ring Of Honor are a huge company and it’s a massive coup for us to get them to agree to work with PCW. As for me booking it well its like a jigsaw with too many pieces and I just cant make it all fit together but I will keep trying. Each time I get something different as there is so many great matches that can happen. I have world famous names such as Adam Cole, The Briscoes, Michael Elgin, ACH, Cedric Alexander, reDRagon plus more coming to Preston and I need to pick matches that the fans want to see. Lots of responsibility and pressure to give people what they want. The fans who buy tickets make this work so I always try to book what they want to see and not what I want to see as they are the key part to the company.
Also this week I have been planning things for the PCW Academy. My opening date is early September and things are moving fast. The students are in for a treat with some quality names from around the world coming to teach them to wrestle and I will do all I can to make it one of the best facilities in the UK. I have mentioned before but this is a not for profit company separate to the main PCW company. I want to build something bigger than just live shows in this town and I think with a full time facility I can really make Preston the place to go to for shows and training. My wife can not wait for the Academy to open as the house is full of equipment and she was not too pleased when I dragged in a 10ft crash mat yesterday to go with the two rings in the back yard, the gym equipment in the living room, the mats and ring ropes in the dining room. I think if I don’t get this Academy open soon I will end up single again haha!
Remember the next show is September 26th and also to join our academy keep an eye on our social media and website for details. Our website is www.prestoncitywrestling.com
