Revolution Pro UK announced the first big name for July 10th Summer Sizzler show at the famous York Hall in London. It will be the first ever match in Europe for New Japan’s NEVER Openweight Champion Katsuyori Shibata. They have promised more big names will be announced soon, and they usually live up to those promises when it comes to the York Hall shows.
2 Matches announced for Rev Pro’s Summer Sizzler (7/10) By Jake Jeremy on June 13, 2016
During last night’s Angle vs Sabre Jr event at Bethnal Green’s York Hall two more matches were announced for Rev Pro’s Summer Sizzler card taking place on July 10th.
Former NJPW Never Openweight champion Katsuyori Shibata will be taking on Zack Sabre Jr and Josh Bodom will be facing Tomohiro Ishii.
Bodom called out Ishii after defeating Chris Hero in a brutal match that saw both men laying in stiff shots, his record for recent York Hall shows is impressive and the bout with New Japan legend Ishii could help elevate his career massively.
After the dream match with Kurt Angle, Zack Sabre looks to further cement his status as ‘the best technical wrestler on the planet’ when he takes on ‘The Wrestler’ Shibata.
Revolution Pro Wrestling from today in London, UK: Charlie Garrett & Joel Redman won four-way over British Young Bloods, Legion of Lords and Jody Fleisch & Jonnny Storm, Tomohiro Ishii b Josh Bodom, Sha Samuels b Moose, Will Ospreay b Pete Dunne to win the British cruiserweight title (long great match, Dunne debuts in BOLA in September), Marty Scurll b Speedball Mike Bailey, Matt Sydal b Big Damo, Zack Sabre Jr b Katsuyori Shibata. Interesting to see New Japan allow one of its champions to do a job. Great main event with a spilt crowd. It appeared they were building up a rematch between the two (thanks to Peter Hitchcock)
