-- Jimmy Havoc is a man on a mission - and that mission appears to be finding himself a regular tag team partner who will be able to join him on a mission of success in the IPW:UK tag team division. Lots of brand new tag teams are forming and the tag team division could start to really fill up for the rest of 2012, all gunning to be the pair that de-throne the dominant champions, The Leaders.
Havoc himself had an opportunity at Battle Royale, teaming with his former NWA Hammerlock training partner 'Dangerous' Danny Garnell, but the pair didn't mesh together as they had hoped and the tag experience of The Leaders won out. Havoc was furious at his tag-partner (even though it was him who was pinned to lose the bout...) and immediately set about finding himself a new one for June 23rd - and now we know who it is.
Returning to IPW:UK for the first time since a successful double knee surgery is former IPW:UK Champion 'Irresistible' Iestyn Rees.
The former spearhead of The Thrillers, Rees came into his own in IPW:UK in 2008, dominating in singles and tag team competition and picking up the IPW:UK Title by defeating then top dog 'The Guvnor' Martin Stone at the very first time of asking. Since then, Rees went on to hold the best win/loss record against Stone, and one of the very best win/loss records in all competitions in IPW:UK history. During this period of time, Rees went toe-to-toe with the likes of former WWE star Al Snow, and current WWE star Mason Ryan, while also destroying all of his competition in all other promotions, steamrolling through competition like a hot knife through butter.
Injury struck however, and Rees hasn't been seen in IPW:UK in coming on 18 months since the official disbanding of The Thrillers. 'Suicidal' Jimmy capturing 'Irresistible' Rees as his partner is a massive coup and one that really could help Havoc set his mark on the tag team division.
Standing in their way however are the popular Bollywood pairing of RJ Singh and Dazzlin' Darrell, collectively known as The Bhangra Knights! Another tag team looking to make their mark on IPW:UK in 2012, Singh and Allen have had much more success this year with an excellent win/loss record around the country, serving for their recall to the IPW:UK roster. Injury ruled out both Bhangra's from last month's Battle Royale event, pushing back their Swanley return to June 23rd.
RJ Singh has been with IPW:UK since the very first year - he competed in singles action on the 1st Anniversary show back in 2005. Allen, a starlet who originated from the IPW:UK training academy, went under Singh's wing back in 2009 and hasn't looked back ever since. One potential major issue is that June 23rd will be their first match as the Bhangra Knights in IPW:UK without their manager, The Director, who blamed for their previous rulebreaking ways.
The Bhangra Knights certainly have the tag team experience edge, but in Iestyn Rees, Jimmy Havoc has recruited one of the top 5 British heavyweights and a former IPW:UK Champion. This first-time match-up goes down on Saturday June 23rd, live from the White Oak Leisure Centre in Swanley, Kent!
