Will Ospreay’s Frontline Wrestling promotion has announced the next two bouts for their upcoming debut event ‘Build Me An Empire.’
The two newly confirmed matches are being billed as ‘Championship Contender’ bouts and will see DEFIANT Wrestling Champion Rampage Brown take on Rob Lynch and Naoki Tanizaki face former PROGRESS World Champion Mark Haskins in what promises to be a technical masterpiece.
Tanizaki is most known for this time as part of the Japanese Dragon Gate promotion, he has held the Open The Brave Gate Championship on one occasion (other notable Champions of the title include Matt Sydal, CIMA, WWE’s Neville, Ricochet, Akira Tozawa, Flamita and Dragon Kid) and the Open the Triangle Gate Championship (Trios Championship) Six times.
As we already announced on the site last month: Pro Wrestling NOAH and Japanese legend Kenoh will be facing one of the UK’s standout talents; Chris Ridgeway in the main event of the show. Ridgeway is one of the most hard hitting and impactful performers on the scene today and his style meshes perfectly with the ‘British Puro’ aesthetic that Frontine are looking to bring on their cards. Company owner Will Ospreay mentioned in an exclusive interview with SEScoops that he wanted to bring Strong Style to Great Britain in a way that was authentic to the Japanese wrestling culture but still highlighted some of the stellar talent that is being produced on UK shores.
