Training basically allows you a bit more ring time than you’d be afforded on a show, and in a more relaxed setting. From a creative standpoint, I tend to find it more fulfilling.  Continue reading

Ballance became the first ever CCW champion when he beat Nicky M in a semi final match before disposing of Irish Dragon, The Executioner and Vic Viper in a fatal four way final at CCW Revolution back in May. However having sealed the win Ballance didn’t leave the arena with the gold after Viper stole his title, setting up a grudge match at Summerbrawl. Continue reading
