Rev Pro UK Pop Up: Road To High Stakes – Results and Review

Ahead of Rev Pro Uk’s biggest show of the year High Stakes at York Hall this Sunday the 19th of October, Rev Pro ran one final pop up show Road To High Stakes this past Saturday on the 12th of September, which was released last night on their Video on demand Service RPWonDemand. The card was stacked with some of their biggest talents including Will Ospreay, Ricky Knight Jr, Aussie Open, Micheal Oku among others as they continued to build towards Hight Stakes,

Callum Newman and JJ Gale vs T.E.A.M (Kenneth Halfpenny and Shaun Jackson)

*T.E.A.M Defeated JJ Gale and Callum Newman

Callum Newman and JJ Gale are two of the brightest young talents in the UK, hitting some incredible flips that got the crowd going, quickly becoming crowd favourites. T.E.A.M or Two Extremly Athletic Men, Kenneth Halfpenny and Shaun Jackson showed they need to be taken seriously as a tandem with some great underhanded tactics and double team moves.

Brendan White vs Nico Angelo

*Brendan White defeated Nico Angelo

Nico Angelo made his Rev Pro UK debut and impressed with his athleticism and agility. This was however all about making Brendan White look dominant in victory and he did just that, in the mix of a strong push with Rev Pro, White continues to look like the dominant powerhouse that he is.

Robbie X vs Yota Tusji

*Robbie X defeated Yota Tsuji

Yota Tsuji has recently arrived in the UK with the former NJPW young lion on his excursion, since arriving he has had some truly exceptional matches and this match was no different, as a Young Lion he always impressed but in the UK he added to his move set already showing of his athleticism and power. Robbie X is seen as young veteran and young legend and he is deserving of this, one of the most underrated under the radar secrets in the UK, he showed off everything he can do once more in this fantastic match.

Connor Mills vs Kyle Fletcher

*Connor Mills defeated Kyle Fletcher

Much like Tsuji, since arriving in back in the UK Kyle Fletcher has had great match after great match whether in tag team action or singles action and he had another great match here, really being able to shine in singles capacity Fletcher could go on to great things. Conner Mills is another incredible young talent often over shadowed by his Destination X tag team partner Micheal Oku who has a bigger personality, Mills is the more capable of great wrestling matches an underrated talent who may not be underrated much longer.

Michael Oku vs Mark Davis

*Mark Davis defeated Michael Oku

In the 2nd of the two single matches between the Members of Aussie Open and Destination Everywhere and another great match. Oku showed all the heart and determination that has endeared to the Rev Pro fans but this was about establishing Mark Davis as the difference maker in their up coming tag team championship match at High Stakes. Following the match Fletcher and Mills came out to the ring and Aussie Open put their PWA tag team championships on the table for a winner take all match.

Hannah Taylor vs Mariah May

*Hannah Taylor defeated Mariah May

This was a fantastic display of great technical British wrestling showing off everything they have been taught in wrestling and more. Hannah Taylor made just her second appearance for Rev Pro UK and really impressed picking up a big win, Mariah May has also only recently started wrestling with Rev Pro, she has a bit more experience but both were excellent. Their recent twitter interaction post match has also been very entertaining.

Will Ospreay and the Young Guns Ethan Allen and Luke Jacobs vs Ricky Knight Jr RKJ and Sunshine Machine Chuck Mambo and TK Cooper.

*Will Ospreay and the Young Guns defeated RKJ and the Sunshine Machine

This was just an incredible match, there were so many great parts, we all know Will Ospreay and how good he is so I will focus more on the other parts. His Partners the Young Guns, Ethan Allen and Luke Jacobs continue to show British Wrestling audiences that they are one of the best if not the best tag team in the UK. Sunshine Machine played their part in this match with fluid tag team action and some great spots to get the crowd excited, they were taken out of the match by T.E.AM. This match was tailor made for RKJ to get over more with the Rev Pro crowd ahead of his match with Ospreay and it did just that, RKJ could be the next leader of UK wrestling scene, the excitement level ahead of his match up with Will Ospreay has reached an all time high.

This was an incredible show to send the Rev Pro fans home more excited for the up coming fantastic card that is the High Stakes show at York Hall.
