Irish based group Fight Factory Pro Wrestling has long been considered the breeding ground for some of the best talent to come out of this country. Just a quick glance at our Irish Top 30 supports this, with the vast majority of the top 10 either been trained in FFPW or have spent time with the group. Now FFPW has added even more strength to its name by becoming the first Irish wrestling group to join the Union of European Wrestling Alliances.
The UEWA is a Europe Wrestling Union, holding ten different groups under it banner from nine different European countries. This move allows FFPW wrestlers easier access to showcase their skills abroad, as they now will have strong connections with some of the best wrestling groups in Europe. This is a huge opportunity for our local talent to showcase why we are building a reputation at turning out some of the best wrestlers globally, not just Europe.
Other groups which feature in the UEWA are:
- Association Biterroise De Catch (France)
- All Star Wrestling (England)
- Catch Wrestling Norddeutschland (Germany)
- Danish Pro Wrestling (Denmark)
- Fight Factory Pro Wrestling (Rep. Ireland)
- Italian Championship Wrestling (Italy)
- Norge Wrestling Foresund (Norway)
- Premier Bristish Wrestling (Scotland)
- Shooting Star Wrestling (England)
- Welsh Wrestling (Wales)
But with this comes another opportunity, as the UEWA also boasts The European Heavyweight Championship. This title is recognised by each member promotion as being the elite title in Europe, and for a wrestler to hold this belt is a huge honor. Now FFPW looks to send its best to Europe to try bring the belt to were it truly belongs.
The move also means that FFPW have guaranteed a spot in the 1st ever 8-man UEWA Cruiserweight Championship Tournament in Oslo on the 21st of May 2011 for one Irish wrestler. In response they will be holding a show on the 26th of march in their gym where theywill have a qualification match to see who will represent FFPW & Ireland in the tournament.
FFPW are having an open invitation to all trained wrestlers in Ireland that wish to be considered/complete for the spot in Oslo. Just E-mail email@example.com. All participants must be under 95kg/210 lbs.
