International Pro Wrestling (IPW) certainly aims to live up to the name – bringing you the best names from both at home and around the world, and putting them together inside the ring to give the fans the best of professional wrestling.
Starting out in Orpington, Kent with the first event taking place in September 2004, over the years IPW has expanded to running shows all over the United Kingdom, as well as taking forays abroad. Events now run all over Kent and throughout the rest of the country, including the 2018 calendar featuring monthly shows in Milton Keynes, as well as regular events at The Casino Rooms in Rochester, The Clapham Grand, and The Frog and Bucket in Manchester.
Over the years many international stars have stepped through the IPW ropes, either before or after making a huge reputation for themselves on worldwide television. This includes the likes of Daniel Bryan, Kevin Owens, Drew McIntyre, Samoa Joe, Mr Anderson and many more, as well as stars from Japan and Mexico. More recently, Austin Aries was crowned as the new IPW World Champion, and has been displaying his newly won title on Impact Wrestling TV.
There has also been a huge plethora of British talent on IPW events, with the aim of helping them grow along with the promotion. This includes the likes of Rockstar Spud, who was on the first ever IPW event, Jonny Storm, Jody Fleisch, Doug Williams, Robbie Brookside and many more. IPW is also about giving opportunities to the newer stars of today, and the likes of Rob Sharpe, Lewis Howley and Maverick Mayhew regularly appearing on our events.
In the summer of 2017 IPW was purchased by Billy Wood, who is looking to progress on the history of the promotion and create a “gold standard” in British wrestling. With a diary of 35 dates for the year already planned and more being discussed, IPW is looking at a bright future in 2018 and beyond.
