Can anybody explain the concept of Ambition 8 to me? Looks like a pretty impressive roster. Between that and 16 Carat it looks like I'd be a fool not to sign up for WXW's streaming service in March.

It's a shoot style tournament

So WxW has it's own streaming service? Or do they jump on with FloSlam? Cuz I saw they have one of their shows on there.

16 Carat Gold is shaping up to be an excellent tournament. Just out of curiosity, who is Marius Al-Ani & how good is he?

He's one half of the Tag Champs, and really broke out during the Tag League. Very good power guy who is very agile too and does crazy dives.

Couple of bits of news...

*Due to the ongoing issues between WWE and wXw over the use of WWE UK talent, Pete Dunne has now been pulled from Dead End in Hamburg on February 24th completely - he was going to wrestle Ilja Dragunov in a DVD exclusive match. Dragunov will now wrestle Alexander James on the main show. The main event for that show is David Starr & Jurn Simmons vs. Ringkampf in a match where if Starr and Simmons win, Karsten Beck takes over from Christian Michael Jakobi as the head of the wXw Championship Committee, and gets the power to book any title match he wants.

*Due to venue conflicts, Shortcut To The Top and the PROGRESS guest show on July 1st have been moved from the Turbinenhalle in Oberhausen to the Live Music Hall in Cologne. As a result, the originally scheduled show in Cologne for June 10th has been cancelled.

wXw is really good at the moment. Some Matches you should watch:

Bones & Colen vs Cerberus ( Oberhausen) ***1/2
Andy vs Al-Ani ( Oberhausen) ****
Marty Scurll vs Axel Dieter (London) ****
Walter vs Jurn Simmons (London) ***3/4
Alexander James vs David Starr (Munich) ***3/4
Ringkampf vs A4 & Simmons ( Munich) ****1/4
A4 vs Brooks & Banks ( Hamburg ) ****
Alpha Lovers vs Alpha & MVB ( Hamburg) *** 1/2
Ringkampf vs Starr & Simmons (Hamburg) ****1/2
Morrison vs Sitoci ( Cologne ) ***1/2

16 Carat should be awesome. The 2. Day is Sold Out with 850 Fans!

I would fully agree with that especially the Ringkampf vs Starr & Simmons match from Dead End. Just an amazing match that everyone should watch.

I'm a bit late in asking this, but will any of the streaming services be showing 16 Carat live? If not, how soon will the shows be uploaded? I've been scouring the matches suggested by wXwNate above, and having a grand old time with them. Psyched for the tourney.

Not live - all shows will be uploaded three days afterwards on wXw Now, and shortly after that on FloSlam.
