WoS UK Tour Night 1 Featured Top Title Change

WoS/World of Sport held the first of their new year tour shows last night from Southampton. The O2 Guildhall in Southampton was reportedly near capacity and there were a number of big bouts confirmed for the card. In the main event WoS Champion Justin Sysum and Robbie X defeated Alpha Bad (Iestyn Rees & Kip Sabian).

The card also saw the following bouts take place:

  • Grado vs. Martin Kirby
  • Crater vs Gabriel Kidd
  • Rampage vs. Will Ospreay
  • Ladder Match – Adam Maxted vs. Nathan Cruz

The biggest result of the night saw WoS Women’s Champion Kay Lee Ray lose her belt to Viper. As we reported recently Kay Lee Ray is NXT UK bound, however interestingly Viper is also looking to leave WoS when her contract expires. Bea Priestley, who also featured in the title match is also being rumored as being bound for NXT UK when her contract ends. These three performers are easily the backbone of the WoS Women’s division, so it will be interesting to see how/if they deal with the situation.

New Champion and ICW Superstar Viper was allegedly offered deals by both AEW and WWE as her WoS deal is expiring soon. Viper/Piper Niven does have some experience in a WWE ring, having performed in the inaugural Mae Young Classic. The Wrestling Observer recently confirmed that Viper was given a much “better offer” than Kay Lee Ray as there was apparently interest from All Elite Wrestling.
