For one full calendar year starting November 2012, IPW:UK will run the second ever British National Championship - a tournament of huge proportions - professional wrestlers from every corner of Great Britain will begin, only one man can win!
There are 16 first round matches (however the 3 champions, Sha Samuels, Kris Travis and Martin Kirby are all seeded directly into round 2), consisting of two wrestlers facing off against each other. The winner is decided by one single fall, with a 20-minute time limit to each bout. Should the time limit be reached, both wrestlers would exit the tournament.
There are then 8 second round matches over 30-minute time limits, four quarter-finals were contested over 40-minute time limits and two semi-finals contested over one hour.
The final has no time limit and this year will be contested best 2/3 falls and with all wrestlers excluding the two involved strictly barred from ringside for this bout.
Dates, bracketing and match day selection will be completed based on ease of geographical location.
The wrestlers chosen for this tournament were deemed to be the most suitable by not only the selection committee, but also by their peers.
The reigning All-England Champion (Sha Samuels) will defend their title in each round. As a result, the winner of this tournament woudl also finish as the current reigning All-England Champion. Other titles (IPW:UK World Title, IPW:UK Tag Team Titles, etc) would not be on the line.
