SourceOn Monday, December 4, What Culture Pro Wrestling (WCPW) is to be relaunched as Defiant Wrestling.

Tickets will be on sale to O2 priority customers from Wednesday, October 4, and general sale from Friday, October 7.
In 2016, Refuse To Lose was the first ever WCPW PPV, and in 2017 it will be the last under the current branding. It will be broadcast live on WhatCulture Extra and via the FITE app on Monday, October 2, at 7pm. The show will be headlined by Joe Hendry vs Will Ospreay, with War Machine vs The Young Bucks also on the card.
WCPW and the lads that made it get a lot of shit, but they deserve some props. They were marks who tried their hand, and successfully launched a wrestling company. They turned a shitty buzzfeed wannabe site into one of the visited places for wrestling news and videos. They're kind of annoying cunts, but they did some cool shit.
WCPW itself wasn't bad, and it had some good matches. It seemed as if they were trying too hard to pander to the mark mentality of "a lot of back-and-forth wrestling holds constitutes a good match" but they had some good moments. Good matches were kinda sprinkled around, but a lot of juicy cards. The name is shit tho.
