Yep - good top half of the card with the company on the line between Starr and Ospreay, Okada and Tana teaming together outside Japan for the first time against Suzuki-gun, Michael Oku going for the Cruiserweight Title, and Aussie Open vs. Sha & Bodom to decide GoD's Royal Quest opponents. Bottom half is pony though, and no Women's Title match for the second straight Rev Pro York Hall show.

So, ignoring the recent Royal Quest event as it's being discussed in NJPW...

Apparently Rev Pro just bought Southside, one of the larger indies in southern England.

Given that Pro Wrestling Chaos has shut down, that IPW has merged with two other promotions in the last two years and there's certainly a general feel of downsizing and shrinking across the UK, what's everyone feeling about this latest turn of events. The Southside promoters seem quite keen and positive to be working with Andy Quinn and helping Rev Pro expand into their old haunts, but if someone with a bit more knowledge about Southside's strong points has some thoughts I'd love to hear it.

One thing Southside did way better than Rev Pro was women's wrestling, they were heavily instrumental in Tegan Nox's development. One of the first Rev Pro shows in old Southside venues will be an all women's show in Sheffield in November, so with the Aulds on board, hopefully that aids a major Rev Pro weakness.
