CB April 14th 2010 (with the return of British Wrestling Evolution)


(L-R) Aaron Abel, Liam “Young Blood” Collins, Captain Flash Rogers.



“Shut up, you don’t wanna be put through Nick’s table, I’m sure Nick wouldn’t appreciate it…”


“So Flash, what’s life like in the year 2777? Do people still watch Coronation Street and stuff?”


“Having him around probably does wonders for your training, seeing that you all want to kill him…”


“We’ve got some big names, big faces, big arms…”

“Someone was just asking about that mosquito bite on your arm…”


“I’m not orange-flavoured, Nick!”


“It’s worth a £5 training session just to throw Aaron around…” “No one throws me around!”


“Who wants to see Nick in the ring?” “What would my wrestling name be?” “Nick! The Phoenix!”


“Of course I’m angry, I’m stuck in a room with you two!”


All of the above were actual things said during Curveballs’ evening with Aaron, Liam and Flash from British Wrestling Evolution, definitely one of our more surreal interviews to date, but a fun one nonetheless! The organisation was formed a year ago and is holding its second tournament, Redemption, on April 24th at the Alec Hunter Humanities College in Braintree. Tickets are £10, either on the door or from, which is also the place to find out more on the wrestlers competing in the event, and how you can get involved with their training sessions, held every Saturday at Fort Galaxy Gym, Ilford. I wonder if a few of our chatroom regulars would be up for that… ;-)
