Revolution Pro Wrestling live report 6-15 London Devitt vs Liger



I'd estimate around 750 in attendance at York Hall. A really fun show, and magical to see Jushin Liger live, wrestling a really good main event with Prince Devitt.
1: Mark Haskins b. El Ligero after interference from a mystery man wearing another one of El Ligero's masks, in a good opening match between two of Britain's better workers
2: The Swords of Essex (Paul Robinson & Will Ospreay) b. Project Ego (Kris Travis & Martin Kirby) to win the Revolution Pro British Tag Team Titles - the Swords of Essex were attacked after the match by the London Riots (James Davis & Rob Lynch), and challenged to a title match
3: Doug Williams b. Hiromu Takahashi, who debuted new colourful gear in his UK debut - Williams took him to school, but Takahashi was allowed to shine near the end, and slowly got over as the match went on
4: Marty Scurll b. MK McKinnan with a chickenwing - Scurll was settling in to his new heel character, and the match didn't really click, but it was still good enough
5: Rampage Brown & Andy Boy Simmonz b. Davey Boy Smith Jr. & Dave Mastiff in a heavy hitting matchup, which ended when Smith Jr. had Brown in an armbar, but Simmonz rolled it up into a pin for Brown
6: Colt Cabana b. Sha Samuels to retain the Revolution Pro British Heavyweight Title - Samuels originally pinned Cabana with a piledriver, but Cabana's foot was on the ropes; shortly after the restart, Cabana tapped Samuels with the Billy Goat's Curse; Brown and Simmonz attacked Cabana after the match, but Darren Burridge made the save to reunite his and Cabana's old tag team "Team SHAG", and challenged Brown and Simmonz to a tag team match on October 19th at York Hall
7: Prince Devitt b. Jushin "Thunder" Liger to retain the Revolution Pro British Cruiserweight Title with Bloody Sunday in an amazing sub-15 minute main event - Mark "Rollerball" Rocco was the special guest at ringside, and there was a standing ovation for both men; Devitt was not playing his New Japan heel character, but elements of his character seeped into his work; Liger entertained the fans with most of his trademark spots, and worked fantastic in a main event role with a familiar opponent
Revolution Pro's next show is on August 18th in Sittingbourne, Kent, featuring Carlito and Jay Lethal, and they return to York Hall in London on October 19th, featuring Hiroshi Tanahashi and a guest appearance by Bret "The Hitman" Hart, plus Team SHAG (Colt Cabana & Darren Burridge) vs. Rampage Brown & Andy Boy Simmonz.
