This roster is a real All Star Roster. Brodie Lee, CM Punk, Jon Moxley, Cesaro, Sami Zayn, Nyla Rose all on my list of favorites. When I was going through my all time great for my roster Bulldog, Steamboat Awesome were all on the list. A whole lot of representation from the UK that I look forward to being told why I should be interested in it (just kidding!).
Once a man would spend a week patiently waiting if he missed a stage coach, but now he rages if he misses the first section of a revolving door.
GWA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPSINGLES MATCHBrodie Lee vs WALTER
The enigmatic BRODIE LEE takes on the immovable WALTER in a clash for the ages. There’s nothing fancy about this main event, because there doesn’t need to be. Raw talent and power will smack down any doubters of who the most elite brawlers are in Professional Wrestling. Who will walk out with the biggest prize in the industry?
TWO-OUT-OF-THREE FALLS MATCHKazuchika Okada vs Cesaro
KAZUCHIKA OKADA, arguably the most gifted pro wrestler of all time, takes on CESARO, the man who never runs out of stamina, and when he does, has a whole reserve tank to go. And both of these men will need all the stamina they can get as they clash in a Two Out of Three Falls match! The RAINMAKER vs The SWISS SUPERMAN! Who will prevail? Who will, undisputedly, be the better man?
GWA UNITED KINGDOM CHAMPIONSHIPSINGLES MATCHCM Punk vs Pete Dunne
The Cult of Personality CM PUNK steps into the ring to battle with the Bruiserweight PETE DUNNE! The GWA United Kingdom Championship will be on the line in this epic clash, and both competitors are raring to go! Pete Dunne has promised to break every finger in Punk’s hands. Punk says he thinks Pete Dunne is very, very good - but he’s not the Best in the World.
GWA HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIPTEXAS DEATH MATCHJon Moxley vs Mike Awesome
There are no rules. There is only destruction and mayhem, blood and tears, wins, losses and the Hardcore Championship. On one side, the Death Match savant, the Lunatic Fringe, the Death Rider, the Wild Thing, the one and only JON MOXLEY. And his opponent only needs one word to describe him, so much so, that he dons it as his last name… it’s MIKE AWESOME!! This unique combination of brutality and power leaves this match one that you will NOT want to miss! MOX VS AWESOME - WHO WILL ASCEND? WHO WILL LEAVE HARDCORE CHAMPION?
GWA WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIPSINGLES MATCHBayley vs Molly Holly
Bayley believes she is the greatest wrestler to ever step foot in the ring, man or woman. Molly Holly, who admires Bayley’s bravery and heart, but dislikes her personality, has a few things to say about that claim. Molly Holly says she can prove that she is not only the superior woman, but the champion of all women. The GWA Women's Championship is on the line: which era-defining woman will reign?
TRIPLE THREAT MATCHRicky Steamboat vs British Bulldog vs William Regal
When you think of a truly fascinating joy to behold in wrestling, the triple threat is a beautiful beast to behold. Adding another layer to the traditional match, the incredible layers of styles and talent on show can make them a match for the history books. Tonight, three competitors look to do exactly that as THE DRAGON RICKY STEAMBOAT takes on THE BRITISH BULLDOG DAVEY BOY SMITH and the iconic WILLIAM REGAL in triple threat action!
BROTHER VS BROTHERSINGLES MATCHBig E vs Hulk Hogan
A bitter feud embroiled in systemic racism and unconscious biases, Big E is out to prove once and for all that he is better than even The Immortal Hulk Hogan by taking on the man himself. Hulk Hogan says that he’s not on top because of his skin colour but because he works harder than Big E, eats more vitamins and says more prayers. Will Hulkamania run wild with prejudice or will Big E prove that the Power of Positivity trumps all? It’s LEGEND VS LEGEND, ICON VS ICON, BROTHER VS BROTHER.
FAMILY FEUDSINGLES MATCHThe Rock vs Umaga

But ultimately, which of these three master tag teams will prevail as the greatest?
SINGLES MATCHMJF vs Sami Zayn
Maxwell Jacob Friedman is a man exceptionally good at making fans want to see him punched in the face… and Sami Zayn is exceptionally good at giving the fans what they want.

GWA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPSingles MatchBrodie Lee vs WALTERThis should be a very entertaining hard-hitting war, I'm all up for this.
EXHIBITION MATCHTwo Out of Three Falls MatchKazuchika Okada vs Cesaro*Chef's kiss*, not sure what else there is to say about this match!
GWA UK CHAMPIONSHIPSingles MatchCM Punk vs Pete DunneDidn't think of this one, but man just thinking about it, it sounds so cool. I love Dunne and can see him and Punk putting on a classic.
GWA HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIPTexas Death MatchJon Moxley vs Mike AwesomeOh yes please! I love a solic wrestling clinic as much as the next guy, but I'll always have a soft spot for the crazy vioent hardcore matches, and this one will deliver.
GWA WOMENS CHAMPIONSHIPSingles MatchBayley vs Molly HollyThis is one of those matches where if I saw it advertised I wouldn't really care all that much, but then I'd end up enjoying it when watching.
EXHIBITION MATCHTriple Threat MatchRicky Steamboat vs British Bulldog vs William RegalBrilliant set of competitors here that would put on a clinic to show the rest of the wrestling world how it's done. This is the workhorse match of the show.
BROTHER VS BROTHERSingles MatchHulk Hogan vs Big EHa, this is a funny idea but putting the gimmick to one side I think it'd be a decent watch. Both men are very charismatic, so would be quite the show.
FAMILY FEUDSingles MatchThe Rock vs UmagaUmaga was great with very believable looking offense and the Rock's a great seller. Add in the psychology you get with the whole "family at war" and you get a great match with a great story.
GWA TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPSTables, Ladders and Chairs MatchThe Dudley Boyz (Bubba and D-Von Dudley) vs Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake) vs SUBCULTURE (Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster)Now this would be awesome to watch, love this one. This is my favourite match of the card along with Okada vs. Cesaro.
GRUDGE MATCHSingles MatchMJF vs Sami ZaynA decent solid mid-card match, nothing to complain about here.
GRUDGE MATCHSingles MatchChris Benoit vs KENTATwo great competitors in what will no doubt be a great match to watch.
GRUDGE MATCHSingles MatchKay Lee Ray vs IvoryLike the other women's match, probably wouldn't pay much attention seeing it advertised. But they're both decent hands in the ring (Kay Lee Ray being the better of the two methinks) and would put on a good match.
GRUDGE MATCHSingles MatchMinoru Suzuki vs Triple HNow this is one of those matches where I didn't realise I wanted it until I saw it. Really creative idea for a match up, really like it.
BATTLE OF THE GARGANTUANS PART TWOSingles MatchBeth Phoenix vs Nyla RoseHoss fight! This will get physical very quick and I'll love it!
BATTLE OF THE GARGANTUANS PART ONESingles MatchYokozuna vs GoldbergAnd an even bigger hoss fight! This is the sort of match Goldberg was made for, perfect opponent in the form of Yokozuna.
GWA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPSingles MatchBrodie Lee vs WALTERReview: Amazing, Hard Hitting, and not the obvious CM Punk vs. Brodie Lee match that I was expecting... I could see Brodie trying to drag WALTER around ringside, and WALTER making him pay for it. And the main championship!
EXHIBITION MATCHTwo Out of Three Falls MatchKazuchika Okada vs CesaroAlso not what I was expecting and would be a slobber knocker. Like the additional 2/3 Falls Stip, but my head canon says this is a rubber match.
GWA UK CHAMPIONSHIPSingles MatchCM Punk vs Pete DunneGreat match, but not quite a dream match I was waiting for, but again, another match I wasn't expecting.
GWA HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIPTexas Death MatchJon Moxley vs Mike AwesomeAmazing.
GWA WOMENS CHAMPIONSHIPSingles MatchBayley vs Molly HollyThis is a good quality match, the women's championship is a nice touch, but not quite a dream match imo.
EXHIBITION MATCHTriple Threat MatchRicky Steamboat vs British Bulldog vs William RegalI'm thinking this is the version that would rival the Angle, Benoit, Jericho triple threat @ Mania, another match I wasn't expecting I wanted until I saw it. booked.
BROTHER VS BROTHERSingles MatchHulk Hogan vs Big EShill! Of course it's a funny concept, but something still irks me about Hogan being booked in general.
FAMILY FEUDSingles MatchThe Rock vs UmagaAnother match i'd love to see, it's been a while since I watched an Umaga match.
GWA TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPSTables, Ladders and Chairs MatchThe Dudley Boyz (Bubba and D-Von Dudley) vs Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake) vs SUBCULTURE (Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster)Good Match, don't know the UK teams as well, but here's to Mandrews getting the snatch grab!
GRUDGE MATCHSingles MatchMJF vs Sami ZaynGive me the promos setting this up, and I don't think i'll even want to see the match, just keep talking about each other!
GRUDGE MATCHSingles MatchChris Benoit vs KENTABenoit is sour for me, and I just can't get behind booking him, even in fantasy, in 2021. That being said, this would be a great 1 on 1 match . Especially if there is a score to settle.
GRUDGE MATCHSingles MatchKay Lee Ray vs IvoryWhat's the grudge? Solid match non the less.
GRUDGE MATCHSingles MatchMinoru Suzuki vs Triple HWhat's the grudge? I would also much rather see Suzuki added to the Texas Death Match then thrown in with Triple H.
BATTLE OF THE GARGANTUANS PART TWOSingles MatchBeth Phoenix vs Nyla RoseLove it!
BATTLE OF THE GARGANTUANS PART ONESingles MatchYokozuna vs GoldbergLike the other one more!
Overview:Top Matches: Kazuchika Okada vs CesaroJon Moxley vs Mike AwesomeRicky Steamboat vs British Bulldog vs William Regal
I give the show 3.75/5 stars for the card. I think I would've booked different matches with the talent you took, but I think that a lot of it has to do with me not being from the UK. A lot of your top tier talent is from there, and i'm just not as familiar as with that group of wrestlers, and they dominate the top of your card.
GWA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPSingles MatchBrodie Lee vs WALTERI'm not shocked that this is the title match. I honestly am gutted that we never truly got to see Lee shine at his full potential and this match would have been it. Love everything about it.
EXHIBITION MATCHTwo Out of Three Falls MatchKazuchika Okada vs CesaroSolid match up here. Of course it goes 3 Falls, but over all I think these 2 put on a hell of a show. I'm interested that is for sure.
GWA UK CHAMPIONSHIPSingles MatchCM Punk vs Pete Dunne100% a dream match. These two could go for an hour and I would love to see it.
GWA HARDCORE CHAMPIONSHIPTexas Death MatchJon Moxley vs Mike AwesomeSO! FUCKING! BRUTAL! we are taking a 20 minute break after this match to change the ring mat. People in the front rows are signing waivers cause they will get splattered with blood.
GWA WOMENS CHAMPIONSHIPSingles MatchBayley vs Molly HollyA good Match, but I see Bayley carrying Molly a bit. But over would be a solid match up.
EXHIBITION MATCHTriple Threat MatchRicky Steamboat vs British Bulldog vs William RegalLove EVERTHING about this match. And I mean everything. Such a solid group of talent here.
BROTHER VS BROTHERSingles MatchHulk Hogan vs Big EThis would be a comedy match to me, and nothing could be said to convince me otherwise. I would love to see it. But it's a comedy Match.
FAMILY FEUDSingles MatchThe Rock vs UmagaThis match writes itself. The story would be excellent.
GWA TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPSTables, Ladders and Chairs MatchThe Dudley Boyz (Bubba and D-Von Dudley) vs Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake) vs SUBCULTURE (Mark Andrews & Flash Morgan Webster)I get why the Dudleys are here, but they don't really feel needed. If it's because the other two teams already fight on nxt uk, I would have almost preferred taking one team out and having it a straight two tag team match. GYV vs Dudleyz would kill! Over all I do think it would be a fun Match. Just feels a tad congested.
GRUDGE MATCHSingles MatchMJF vs Sami ZaynI agree with wil. The match will be great I'm sure. But fuck beans, I wanna see them promos. And I would keep them both heels. It would be funny to see who could be the bigger asshole.
GRUDGE MATCHSingles MatchChris Benoit vs KENTAIn this fantasy world Benoit did no wrong. So that being said. I want this Match. This is an excellent match.
GRUDGE MATCHSingles MatchKay Lee Ray vs IvoryI was a fan of Ivory back in the day. So I like her getting respect here. Fun Match for sure.
GRUDGE MATCHSingles MatchMinoru Suzuki vs Triple HOver all i think this match could be excellent. Especially if Trips has his trusty sledgehammer with him. I'm digging this one.
BATTLE OF THE GARGANTUANS PART TWOSingles MatchBeth Phoenix vs Nyla RoseThis match is ... ok, I could see them having a decent match, but it isn't something that screams must watch to me.
BATTLE OF THE GARGANTUANS PART ONESingles MatchYokozuna vs GoldbergNot gonna lie. This match does nothing for me. Goldberg doesn't interest me to begin with, and I find him especially boring against talent his size or bigger.
Over all this card is mixed for me. Some matches just aren't dream matches are interesting to me all that much. But damn, the matches that do, are really fucking interesting. Some of these would 100% steal any ppv they are part of.
