1PW announces it's return
1PW is back with a major show coming soon
One Pro Wrestling (1PW), a U.K. independent wrestling promotion has announced that it will be making it's triumpant return on October 1st, with a show called "A New Twist of Fate" and 1PW have partnered with Fite.tv and other promotions such as AEW.
The show will be available for streaming on Fite.tv about a week after it's filmed and will take place in the Doncaster Dome in Doncaster, England. Wrestlers already announced for the event include Rob Van Dam, Ruby Soho and Mickie James.
The managing director, Steven Gauntley, spoke with PWTorch and said he felt now was the right time for 1PW to return due to "a void at the top of the British wrestling scene.
"I have always had a passion and love for what 1PW was able to achive many years ago. It completely changed the landsacpe of the wrestling business in the U.K., and myself and my team just really feel, as I'm sure many people can agree, that the timing is perfect for 1PW to come back and fill the void at the top of British wrestling again. There is not really a premium brand right now in the U.K. that has capturing people's imaginations the way 1PW did before, and so I think the marketplace is wide open and desperate for a freshly envisioned 1PW to lead the way to a new renaissance in British Wrestling."
He even went on to say that the entire back catalog will be avalible over the next year or so. In a press statement Fite.tv Digital Director Paul Owens said this about the partnership.
"We couldn't be happier to be partnering with 1PW and supporting their relaunch in the British Professional Wrestling market. The content landscape has changed dramatically since 1PW held their last show and we're excited to bring their events to a worldwide audience and deliver their extensive professional wrestling catalog to our growing offering for FITE+ subscribers."
Between now and October Fite+ customers will be able to periodically find some of the old 1PW footage which has not been widely distributed before online. It is worth noting that names such as AJ Styles, Sami Zayn, Abyss, Samoa Joe and even Bret "The Hitman" Hart have all previously wrestled for the promotion. 1PW Invincible 2006 and 1PW First Anniversary Show 2006 have already dropped and are avalible to Fite+ subscribers.
