Red Star Wrestling (RSW) is an UK backyard wrestling federation which opened in October 2009 by Lewis Blue and Chris Clash. It is considered to be a lonesome trampoline federation in the United Kingdom. Its events are video packaged and available online for viewership.
Red Star Wrestling is a north eastern UK federation which started its operations on October 21, 2009, co-owned by Lewis Blue and Chris Clash, who underwent a lengthy decision time to open it after trampoline federations TXW and NEEW went under. RSW is noted to arguably be an only trampoline backyard federation left in the UK. The federation initially worked with 4 roster members. On its debut show, GMD defeated Unknown to become the inaugural RSW Light Heavyweight Champion and Clash defeated Blue in the main event.
More wrestlers began joining the roster sooner in MK Rated, A Blaze, Andy Gold, Adam Atom, Justice, Mr. Loco and The Lost Ninja. At RSW's first and only Free-Per-View of 2009, RSW Hell or High Water event, its first RSW Heavyweight Champion, Blue, was crowned in an Oven Tray match. The federation's first storyline faction developed between Blue, Gold and Clash known as The Brotherhood, after attacking MK Rated who was the contender for the Heavyweight Title, that forged collectively in order to "rule out scum" in RSW and become the best.
In 2011, Red Star Wrestling presented it's first show of the new decade, 'Rage' on the 27th of January which featured the 'Cash in the Case' match and a Non-Title match between Chris Clash and Lost Ninja. The show started with a promo from 'The Superstar' Lewis Blue in which he announced Clash had became the NEC Champion after he defeated 'The One' Bobby Robson. Later in the show Andy Gold defeated GMD, Adam Atom, Lewis Blue, RSW European Champion A Blaze and EXWA's -NV- to win the 'Cash in the Case'. The next and final match on the card was RSW World and NEC Champion, Chris Clash versus Lost Ninja in a non-title match. On the following 'Rage' (aired 27/02/2011) RSW European Champion A Blaze took on GMD in a non-title match. Lewis Blue faced off in a grudge match against former fellow 'Brotherhood' stablemate and current Cash in the Case holder, Andy Gold. The main event of the 27/02/2011 episode of Rage consisted of RSW World and NEC Champion, Chris Clash taking on Justice in a non-title match.
Soon followed was RSW's first Free-Per-View of the year and decade: Retribution, a show which would change the face of Red Star Wrestling forever. The first match on the Retribution card was Justicse vs Lost Ninja vs A Blaze for the RSW European Championship, this match would also go on to be A Blaze's last match in Red Star Wrestling. The next match was an unannounced match which was included after the RSW General Manager, Mr Loco purchased the defunct Beta Wrestling, the match consisted of former Beta superstars Zack Barron and Alpha, this match was also scheduled to be the last ever match for the Beta Championship. The last match on the Retribution card was a Street Fight for the NEC Championship between long time rivals Lewis Blue and the champion Chris Clash. Just as this match was about to start outcame Cash in the Case holder Andy Gold who proceeded to cash in his 'Cash in the Case' championship opportunity to turn this Singles Match into a Triple Threat classic. Then at the end of the show as Chris Clash and victor Lewis Blue put their differences between them, outcame Beta superstars Zack Barron and Alpha ambushing the two RSW veterans with no reason.
The following Rage aired 12/06/2011 opened with GMD and Andy Gold facing off against Lost Ninja and New RSW European Champion, Justice in an epic tag bout. After the bout, RSW General Manager, Mr Loco granted Chris Clash the opportunity for his revenge in the Main Event against 'The One Man Stampede', Alpha. The next match on Rage saw New NEC Champion, Lewis Blue seeking revenge for the cowardly attack dished out at the hands of Beta Champion, Zack Barron and Alpha in a one on one, Champion vs Champion, non-title match consisting against the Beta Champion, Zack Barron. The main event of this episode of Rage was between RSW World Champion, Chris Clash and Alpha in a brutal one on one match which came to a more than confusing end as images of an unknown character appeared on screen. The aftermath of this match seemed to be a repeat of the end of Retribution until NEC Champion, Lewis Blue made the save for his former teammate and arch-rival Chris Clash, this resulted in both Blue and Clash handing Zack what he more than deserved. Zack Barron certainly was not impressed with what he had recieved at the end of the Clash-Alpha match and he certainly let Alpha know about it warning him that "if he did not step it up, he would not be champion for much longer" which would undoubtably result in the end of this 'Beta' revolution. After this verbal, and somewhat physical warning Andy Gold had no isssue in letting Zack know that the arguement between Zack and Alpha sounded like a 'lover's tiff'.
On the following episode of Rage aired 26/06/2011 Zack Barron certainly let Andy Gold know he was not best pleased with Gold's comment which resulted in a non-title match between the two which concluded with Zack Barron's first loss in RSW, at the end of this match Andy Gold let Zack know that he did have an interst in the Beta title. The following match was a rematch from the previous Rage between RSW World Champion, Chris Clash and Alpha but with Zack Barron banned from ringside this time round. Whilst Chris Clash was walking to the back he seemed to have some sort of pains with his head whilst the imagery from the end of the previous Rage appearing on screen. The main event of this episode of Rage was a one on one, non title match between NEC Champion, Lewis Blue and a Lost Ninja who appeared to have a much more demented and powerful side to him. This was a tightly contested match, in which Lewis Blue just came out on top.
The next episode of Rage aired 09/07/2011 but was removed from YouTube twice for content too awesome to be aired on the internet. This episode featured Andy Gold versus GMD in a singles match which saw Zack Barron and Alpha appear and help Andy Gold pick up the victory. After the match 'Beta' were awaiting Gold and Barron demanded a thank you from Gold. After several comments were exchanged this resulted in the first match on the card for the next Free-Per-View: Paranoia which was Zack Barron vs Andy Gold with Zack's Beta title and Andy's freedom on the line. The next match on the card saw the 'new' Lost Ninja take on RSW European Champion, Justice in a singles match. The main event on the card was an epic tag match between Beta Champion, Zack Barron and fellow stablemate Alpha taking on NEC Champion, Lewis Blue and RSW World Champion, Chris Clash, this match saw the first time Blue and Clash had teamed together in near 2 years.
The next event held by Red Star Wrestling was their second Free-Per-View of the year: Paranoia. This event was opened with a Loser Leaves RSW match for the RSW European Championship between challenger GMD and champion Justice. The following match on the card was a championship match for the Beta Championship and Andy Gold's freedom between Beta Champion, Zack Barron and challenger Andy Gold. The following match was a brutal tables match for the NEC Championship between challenger Alpha and NEC Champion, Lewis Blue. The main event of Paranoia saw RSW World Champion, Chris Clash came to the ring without an opponent but then his recent head pains began again and it was revealed that Lost Ninja was playing these mind games and inflicting this pain on Clash. Lost Ninja came out to ring side and removed the hood revealing himself as 'Phobia' then just as these two were about to put on a championship classic out came RSW General Manager, Mr Loco who provided himself as the referee for this contest. At the end of the show as New RSW World Champion, Phobia was leaving outcame Zack Barron followed by Alpha and Andy Gold. Zack Barron appeared to have congratulated Phobia on his victory but Phobia had no interest in relating with Barron. Seconds later Barron ordered his 'henchmen' to mercilessly attack former Champion, Chris Clash. After all three men had beaten up what was left of Clash, Beta Champion, Zack Barron announced that the team of himself, Alpha and Andy Gold were Progress and they were there to 'take over'.
The following Rage aired 04/09/11 saw Zack Barron lecturing his Progress henchmen, Andy Gold and Alpha on what they must do on that given night. The opening match saw Andy Gold face former Brotherhood team-mate and former co-holder of the RSW Duo Championships, Chris Clash in a classic bout which saw Clash only just get the better of Gold which undoubtably angered Barron causing him to throw Gold's head to the ground in disappointment. The next contest featured the new NEC Champion, Alpha face off against the new RSW World Champion, Phobia in a clash of the titans which the RSW World Champion conquered the 'One Man Stampede'. The main event of this Rage saw RSW European Champion, GMD take on Lewis Blue and Beta Champion, Zack Barron in a triple threat match for the Beta Championship constructed by RSW General Manager, Mr Loco. This collosal contest saw Lewis Blue defeat Barron for his Beta championship.
The Rage after Barron's title loss and the potential early implode of Progress (aired 25/09/11) opened with Zack Barron making a what seemed important phonecall stating that "it was about time I got help around here". The opening contest for this show featured the team of Progress members, Andy Gold and Alpha deaft RSW European Champion, GMD and RSW World Champion, Phobia in the first match up in the tournament to crown the new holders of the reborn RSW Duo Championships. The second match saw new Beta Champion, Lewis Blue enter first and when awaiting for his opponent out came Zack Barron only to introduce newest RSW superstar, Scott Barron, Zack's younger brother. Blue only just grasped the victory over Scott, after the match the fresh and hopeful Scott shook the Beta Champion's hand which pushed Zack over the edge resulting in Zack hitting Blue with the Believe in Barron (B.i.B) throwing Blue's championship on him and forcing Scott to leave the RSW Arena. The main event of this show saw Chris Clash vs Zack Barron, the contest ended when Clash hit his Clash Connection on Barron on the outside and neither man being able to move. Barron was dragged out of the arena by his fellow Progress members, Andy Gold and Alpha.
The following Rage aired 13/11/11 and opened with RSW General Manager, Mr Loco delivering a highly shocking message. Loco had decided to make the Beta and the NEC Championship defunct to make sure that the championships of RSW remained prestigious. Loco decided to recreate the RSW Duo Championships as displayed of the previous episode with the start of the Duo Championships tournament which saw Progress members, Andy Gold and Alpha defeat RSW European Champion, GMD and RSW World Champion Phobia. Next featured was a discussion between Zack and Scott Barron displaying Barron's anger for Loco banning Alpha and Andy Gold from the RSW arena for superstar safety. The first match on the card saw Zack and Scott take on the team of Lewis Blue and Chris Clash in the second round of the RSW Duo Championships tournament. Clash and Blue showed why they were former RSW World Champions as their experience allowed them to defeat The Barrons. The second and main event on the card saw RSW European Champion, GMD take on his tag team partner from the Rage before RSW World Champion, Phobia which saw GMD get an upset victory over the world champion. Although GMD's victory was short lived as not long after his win out came Scott Barron clearly showing interest in the European Championship which distracted GMD allowing Phobia to hit him with his dreaded finishing move and if that wasnt enough in came Scott who also hit GMD with his finishing move, the 'Saving Jane'.
The wait was finally over, RSW's last free-per-view of 2011, Exodus was here. The opening contest saw Scott Barron in his first championship match since coming to RSW. He was going up against the European Champion, GMD. GMD was looking to gain revenge on Barron for hitting him with the 'Saving Jane' in the previous rage, after GMD's tenacious match with RSW World Champion Phobia. In a back and forth match, in which saw the contest go both ways, Scott Barron finally landing his unique finishing manoeuvre the 'Saving Jane' and pinning GMD becoming the new RSW European Champion.
