WrestleTalk Showcase: No Fans Monday A Huge Success Thanks To Will Ospreay
With just four days notice, Will Ospreay paired with WrestleTalk to produce one of the most interesting shows we will see in the UK this year. They packed an arena with 0 fans, and live streamed it to 11k fans around the world, as some of the best in the world today went to war.
Will Ospreay Defeated Bea Priestley In The Main Event
With Will Ospreay being the man behind this show, he decided to use this spot to prop up his girlfriend, AEW star Bea Priestley. For years, the narrative was that she only got work because she was dating Will Ospreay, which was proven to be a complete lie time and time again. She took one of the best in the world to his absolute limit in a fantastic main event. Without a crowd of fans to motivate them, they still proved they could have a great match without that.
9.2k£ In Donations
Throughout the show, fans would give what they could to support the wrestlers on the show. They raised 9.2k£ over the two hour event, with some giving upwards to 500$ in a single donation. Combined with the income from the ‘Support Wrestling, Screw Coronavirus’ T-Shirts, the wrestlers will all get an equal share of the money to support themselves and their families.
The Undercard Impressed With Old Faces And New
While the main event was what brought most fans to this event, it was a solid card from top to bottom. Matches like David Starr vs. 17 year old rookie Callum Newman told an incredible story of proving you belong. Kyle Fletcher & Connor Mills put on a match that wouldn’t be out of place in NJPW or an NXT Takeover. Every match delivered, and had the fans in the live chant excited to be witnessing this.
More To Come?
With how huge of a success this show ended up, we won’t be surprised if this is the last time this happens over the next few months. None of these people will really have a chance to wrestle elsewhere, so to keep their names relevant and skills sharp, we could see more shows from this colorful cast. Ospreay in his post-main event speech said he is down for another round, so keep your eyes open. Until then, don’t forget the message of this show. Support Wrestling, Screw Coronavirus.
