10. Revolution Pro Wrestling Heating Up
Much of the talk surrounding the British independent scene is negative at the moment, and understandably so. The new contracts doled out to the likes of Pete Dunne don’t bode well for what was the most exciting territory on the planet before the unstoppable WWE juggernaut swept in.
That being said, it’s way too early to sound the death knell, and while British promotions must now face the prospect of plucking talent from an even shallower pool, one group continues to thrive in spite of WWE’s influence.
RevPro have had an up and down year. Inconsistent booking, weird lineups, and criticism towards the way they putNew Japan stars over their own established guys remain, but they’re really starting to heat up again. Highlighted by superb bouts between Suzuki-gun and Aussie Open, Satoshi Kojima and WALTER, and an awesome Tomohiro Ishii vs. David Starr main event, November’s Uprising was an outstanding pay-per-view, and there are now endless reasons to be excited about RevPro in 2019.
For one, they’ve already booked PAC vs. Zack Sabre Jr. for 6 January. If they keep pulling of feats like that all year, they'll thrive.
