Will Ospreay’s new promotion Frontline Wrestling has released their debut show ‘Build Me An Empire’ on demand via Vimeo. The show featured some of the finest performers on the UK scene as well as two of Dragon Gate’s most iconic stars.

The main event featured an outrageous bout between Chris Ridgeway and Japan’s KENOH. Ridgeway is an accomplished ‘strong style’ combatant in his own right but this match at the top of the card will be the bout that catapults him into the upper echelons of both the UK scene and, hopefully, Japan (much like how Ospreay’s bout against Okada for Rev Pro got him on a plane going East). We spoke to Ospreay earlier this year and he discussed his want to bring ‘puroresu‘ to the United Kingdom, this big time main event and the reaction from the crowd in attendance seems to solidify that strong style/puroresu has truly arrived in Britain.

The rest of the stellar card stacked up as follows:

  • Stixx Vs Rob Lynch
  • Mark Haskins Vs Naoki Tanizaki
  • M&M (Connor Mills & Maverick Mayhew) Vs The 198 (“Flash” Morgan Webster & Wild Boar)
  • Toni Storm Vs Bea Priestley
  • Kip Sabian & Chief Deputy Dunne Vs Kely Sixx & El Phantasmo
  • Six Man Tag Team match – #CCK (Chris Brookes, Travis Banks & Kid Lykos) Vs Adam Brooks & Aussie Open (Mark Davis & Kyle Fletcher)

You can rent or purchase the full card via the tweet below. If you see the show let Will know your thoughts on Twitter @WillOspreay.
