As one half of JK and Joel he has broadcast to millions on BBC Radio 1, Absolute Radio, and local stations across the country. He is a star of children’s television, and as co-host of The Sun newspaper’s WrestleCast he was the man who broke the news of John Cena’s real opinion about The Rock. Now, one of the most high profile wrestling fans in the UK is coming to the Frontier Wrestling Alliance, as Joel Ross makes his debut as a colour commentator today at New Frontiers.
This surprise news was revealed by regular colour commentator and new FWA Head of Content Greg Lambert early on Thursday. Lambert will be giving up his seat behind the announce desk on Sunday, leaving Ross to team up with Dave Bradshaw for the second half of this weekend’s opener to Season Two.
“I have no idea why Greg Lambert is voluntarily giving up an opportunity to hear the sound of his own voice,” Bradshaw told FWAUK.com this lunchtime. “Nor do I know how Joel Ross has come to be involved with the FWA. It all seems very odd to me, but in any case I’d like to welcome Joel to the team – hopefully he’ll put less of a dampener on my Sunday afternoon plans than Greg would have…”

The Frontier Wrestling Alliance is proud to announce that it will be making its debut at THORPE PARK with four days of live action at the Park over the course of Easter weekend.
Experience some of Europe’s most extreme rides and attractions at THORPE PARK, the nation’s Thrill Capital, from SAW - The Ride, the world’s most terrifying rollercoaster, to the ‘Unholy Trinity’ of Stealth, Colossus and Nemesis Inferno. New for 2011, climb aboard a life raft and get in a spin on Storm Surge, the ultimate sky-high spinning water ride featuring a jaw-dropping 64 foot spiralling descent.
An alliance between the two organisations seems like a perfect fit: the FWA is one of the UK’s most up-and-coming entertainment brands, with a rapidly growing fan-base and some of the most exciting wrestling in the world. Its second season kicked off with New Frontiers, an action-packed two-day show at the Birmingham NEC. The THORPE PARK shows will take place on 22nd to 25th April.
“We are delighted to be working with THORPE PARK , and bringing the FWA to thousands of thrill-seekers on one of their busiest weekends of the year,” said Tony Simpson, managing director of the Frontier Wrestling Alliance. “This is another leap towards our goal of bringing British wrestling back into the mainstream, and we know that all the people who see us during Easter will be gripped by the action we bring them.”
It is indeed an exciting time to be a British wrestling fan, with more big news coming soon when the FWA is expected to address the rumours about a regular central London home for the promotion. Meanwhile, the British Wrestling Coalition as just announced the ground-breaking announcement that the UK's leading performing arts union, Equity, will now accept British professional wrestlers as member. Some say this represents the biggest political change in the industry in over 30 years.
Be sure to check back to FWAUK.com next week for more on both of those stories, and in the meantime make your plans now to visit THORPE PARK (www.thorpepark.co.uk) for an unforgettable long weekend of wrestling this Easter at the nation’s Thrill Capital.
BEHIND THE MIC
commentator Dave Bradshaw begins his blog of FWA Season Two by looking
ahead to a potentially turbulent weekend at the Birmingham NEC…
FWAUK.com has just been informed that "important news" about the promotion’s plans for 2011 will be made at New Frontiers this weekend. But 24 hours before the announcement at the Birmingham NEC, the news will be exclusively revealed on Friday right here at FWAUK.com! For the past few months there has been a great deal of uncertainty among fans about the FWA’s strategy for the year ahead. With relatively few dates announced for Season Two, many have been speculating that there must have been some serious negotiations going on behind the scenes. Management were staying tight-lipped at last month’s BritWres-Fest, but rumours were circulating among many of the crew backstage that something big was in the works. Given the success of that 2-day spectacular at Debut London, some were talking of a possible regular home for FWA shows in the capital. Others were convinced that a deal was being struck with a major media or commercial backer, building on the relationships that the promotion has recently built with the Old Vic Theatre and IdeasTap. Whatever has been happening, the wait will soon be over. Be sure to check back on Friday 25th March, on the eve of Season Two’s first chapter, when we will all find out what FWA management have meant by their recent claims that Brit Wres Fest was "only the beginning"...
