Rev Pro Coventry - HMV Empire

Updated: Mar 21

It's Clint here at the former home of Wrestle Carnival which hosted Rev Pro’s return to the West Midlands.



Lucia Lee, Alex Connors and George Lydon worked the doors.


It wouldn’t be Rev Pro without ring announcer Francesca who opened proceedings but was interrupted by Reece and Rogan who put out an open challenge

which was quickly accepted by ring crew Joshua James and David Francisco.



REECE AND ROGAN VS THE CONTENDERS


This one was tough to call but the contenders picked up the win in 7:53.



MICHAEL OKU VS MAN LIKE DEREISS


I wondered if Leyton Buzzard or Brett Semtex may get involved in this ahead of Buzzards World Title match in 2 weeks.


The match turned when Dereiss hurt his leg. Oku took advantage of this but MLD won’t give up easily at a venue he’s won many matches. A frog splash was quickly followed by Oku showing why he’s called the master of the half crab as Dereiss tapped at 21:44.




CONNOR MILLS VS JJ GALE


2 men on the rise and with momentum. Both have taken Zack Sabre Jnr to the absolute limit at the recent Crystal Palace shows.


Mills put away Stephen Wolfe on the last show and JJ Gale was the sole survivor in a star stuffed 12 man tag main event at 229.


This one was stopped by referee decision at 13:37 as JJ was unable to defend himself further.



LUKE JACOBS VS OSKAR LEUBE


Young Gunn Vs Young Blood. Leube lost his partner to injury recently but showed here that he’s got plenty to offer in the singles division.


Jacobs picked up the win by pinfall at 10:24.



KANJI VS ALEXXIS FALCON


Falcon came out first antagonising the crowd. Kanji joined her in the ring as both women looked to make their mark on the division and potentially set up to challenge the winner of the Women’s World Title match at Revolution Rumble.


Kanji picked up the win just after the 15 minute mark.



LEON SLATER VS ROBBIE X VS CAMERON KHAI


Leon wanted to recover from losing the Cruiserweight Title to Jordan Breaks 2 weeks ago while Robbie X was looking to take momentum into the Revolution Rumble as 1 of the favorites. Khai was the wildcard capable of keeping up with both.


This was as fast paced as expected with all 3 trading the advantage.


The youngest in charge picked up the win with a Swanton 450 on Khai at 11:35.


LEYTON BUZZARD VS RICKY KNIGHT JNR


I feel like I could count on 1 hand the amount of times I’ve seen RKJ lose anywhere in the last 2 years. 1 of those was at High Stakes to Anthony Ogogo though. Buzzard is on a roll and intends to take the Rev Pro Title at York Hall at the end of the month.


The highlight of the match was the flyest of elbows from RKJ with a long jump from the elevated entranceway to ringside.



Semtex interfered on a couple of occasions and that’s how the match ended. RKJ won by DQ at 16:06.


He was double teamed after the match which left a dilemma for Oku in the back as he’s feuding with Leyton/Brett but had an altercation with RKJ and they had to be separated during the previously mentioned 12 man tag 2 weeks ago. The Rev Pro Champion came out and made the save and shook hands with the youngest of the Knights.



1 more miscue from either of them and I can see a potential blockbuster match set up down the line.



TAG TEAM TITLES

SUBCULTURE VS GREEDY SOULS


This had a big match feel. The Tag Team Champions Mark Andrews (returning from injury) and Flash Morgan Webster defending against the Great British Tag League winners Brendon White and Danny Jones.


I sensed a title change coming here but at the same time Andrews didn’t fight back from injury to lose at the first hurdle.


I was glad the Titles main evented. While a lot of promotions shy away from treating the Tag Titles as an equal that isn’t the case at Rev Pro.


A low blow by Danny Jones to FMW at the 15 minute mark looked like the end of Subcultures reign but Flash kicked out at 2.


A couple of minutes later Andrews returned the favour with a low blow to Jones (all behind the referees back) as a knee to Whites face from Webster combined with a poisonrana from Andrews had the Champions retain and set up a mouthwatering match with the Grizzled Young Veterans.


1 more show in St Neots next weekend before Revolution Rumble at York Hall on 31st March. If you haven’t been to them, the big shows always deliver and who doesn’t love the rumble format?
