SWA – The Next Chapter Review


There was apprehension in the air as we approached Cumbernauld for SWA – The Next Chapter, and it wis absolutely nothing to do wae anything wrestling related. Anytime I’m in Cumbernauld I feel like the infinite greyness that surrounds the place is gonnae take my soul, but I was pleasantly surprised tae be greeted at the front door by none other than the smiling face of Jam O’Malley. That’s when ye know its gonnae be alright. He re-assuringly welcomed us at the door, and shot a knowing wink in my direction like he wis assuring us “yer souls are safe here guys” ┬áso ye know whit? maybe I misjudged you Cumbernauld. Soured by years of enduring a mind numbing education in your horrendous embrace, I saw nothing of the beauty in the place. The beauty in the fact that there are two Greggs branches in the one shopping centre. Blinded tae the fact that the Cumbernauld has the remarkable statistic of having 1 roundabout tae every 5 humans living there, and blinded to the fact that St Maurices High School wis clearly some sort of mecca for brilliant wrestling. SWA have┬ánever failed to deliver in the shows of theirs I’ve been at right enough, but this was a stoater across the board for me. Providing a diverse blend of yer classic “baddie vs goodie” dynamic for the weans and the simpletons combined with 4 of the best wrestling matches yer likely to see this year (At least in Cumbernauld anyway, although I did see a young guy gettin dragged about the toon centre by the collar a few months back, but ye couldnae ever call that one a fair fight I don’t think. She didnae have a collar for a start) for the bearded sweaty marks and pale faced lassies. When I think about it I probably have elements of all 4 of those groups in me, so that makes this the perfect show eh? Only way tae find out if it was is tae read on. Or ask someone else who was there. Ye might get a quicker answer tbh, cause I’m gonnae haver shite for a while. Ye intae it? Good.

SWA Clan Wars 2014 Review


SWA made their return to the Motherwell Concert Hall to celebrate their 10 year anniversary, after a hugely successful night at the venue for Battlezone. At that event, Scotland’s premier suplex slinger and lariat chucker Joe Coffey won a 30 man rumble to earn a shot at the Scottish Heavyweight Title. It was only fitting that the scene of that triumph would be the venue where Joe would look to see it bear fruits, as he would cash in his title shot and challenge Mikey Whiplash for the Title inside a Steel Cage. Whilst that eye watering, baw tingling prospect was undoubtedly the highlight, the whole card was stacked with the very best homegrown talent, with some intriguing singles matches, a tag title match and a couple of elimination tag matches to go with the Steel Cage match, it was a card with a bit of everything
