INTRODUCTION

 

The Union Of European Wrestling Alliances (or UEWA for short) is a unique European connection of wrestling promotions of different countries which was founded on july 1st, 2009 with member promotions out of Austria, England, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Scotland and Switzerland. Every country is represented by one sole promotion which has the same rights as every other promotion in this alliance.

The UEWA serves as an umbrella for all participating promotions, but is no promotion itself. All events held under the UEWA banner are promoted by the UEWA member promotions. This European umbrella organisation holds the European heavyweight championship as well as European cruiserweight championship for all promotions. Championships which carry its names with pride and honor and represent exactly what they are: A European Heavyweight Championship and a European Cruiserweight Championship. Championships which can be held by every European wrestler and can and will be defended and respected all over Europe.

  FFPW

FFPW has been in operation for over 10 years now. Founded in 2003 by Paul Tracey & Fergal Devitt as the NWA Ireland Training school it changed its name to FFPW as NWA Ireland wanted to focus on the promoting side of the business.

ICW

Italian Championship Wrestling is Italy's own wrestling promotion, running over 25 events per year on the whole Italian territory. Based out of Pavia, in the north of Italy, ICW has already been in 15 out of the 20 regions of Italy, with over 150 shows in its 8-year+ history.

Established in January 2001, and starting from scratch in a country with no previous history of resident wrestling, ICW has slowly but steadily cut out its niche in the landscape of European wrestling. ICW has its own roster of Italian athletes, all of whom have graduated from ICW's training system, the ICWAcademy. Dislocated in 12 gyms scattered throughout Italy (Pavia, Bergamo, Brescia, Castellanza, Florence, Genoa, Lecco, Lodi, Rimini, Turin, Verona, Vicenza), the ICW Academy frequently invites top-notch guest trainers to pass on their knowledge of the squared circle to the Italian wrestlers. Past guest trainers have included Chris Hero, Nigel McGuinness, Mike Quackenbush, Joe E Legend, Chad Collyer, Michael Kovac, Murat Bosporus, Ares, James Tighe, Spud, and many others. ICW also frequently features international talent on its shows. The history of names who have graced ICW's ring is a who's who of the top European grapplers and the top American wrestlers who have visited Europe in the last few years.

ICW's biggest events of the year are "Cold War", in January; "Vendetta" and "WrestleRama" in May; the annual "Il Numero Uno"

Tournament; "La Legge del Piů Forte", in August; "Pandemonium", in October; and "Vae Victis", in December. ICW has also recently launched its own tv show, ICW Turbo, available on TeleFriuli, Espansione TV, Streamit, and soon to be available on other Italian tv outlets. ICW's top stars include "L'Imperatore" Kaio, Red Devil, Andres Diamond, Lupo, Lothar, Charlie Kid, Mariel, Kobra, Mr. Excellent, OGM, Shock, female talents Queen Maya and Lisa Schianto, and renowned senior referee Enrico Boneschi.

  Infinite Promotions

Infinite Promotions began life in May 2012 from its home in Liverpool, England, under the watchful eye of founders Ciarán McConnell and Jack Rea. It has rapidly established itself as one of the must-see promotions in the country. With something on its shows for everyone Infinite features the best Heavyweight clashes, aerial spectacles and technical encounters. Infinite's roster boasts the talents of CJ Banks, El Ligero, Bubblegum, Zack Gibson, Joey Hayes, Danny Hope, Rampage Brown and others from the national scene. It has also hosted international stars including Jay Lethal, Chuck Taylor, Prince Devitt and Michael Elgin. The combination of the top UK stars and talent from overseas has helped Infinite become what it is today.

Whilst Infinite looks to make big strides into the future, it has a great respect for the past. Multiple shows in Infinite short history have featured bouts contested under Admiral Lord Moutevans' rules: two pin falls, two submissions or one knockout to a finish. These will continue to be a feature of Infinite's production going forward. Also with a nod to history, its Heavyweight Championship belt features the image of "Nature Boy"” Buddy Rogers, the first man to be named WWE (Then WWWF) Champion. It is with the same spirit of revolution that the WWE had when it changed the industry that Infinite has at its core now. Rogers' image reminds us of that.

As a member of UEWA, Infinite looks to make the next strides in furthering itself as a major player on the independent scene, and to represent the rich, historic English wrestling scene on the European frontier.
