Five Questions With...Christopher Pugh from Hashtag Wrestling.

After last week's interview with Headlocker Writer Michael Kingston, it's now time to speak to Hashtag Wrestling Promoter, Christopher Pugh.

Name: Christopher Pugh
Age: 30
Hometown: Houghton Regis, Central Bedfordshire, United Kingdom.
Known for: Hard work and determination

1. When did you first get into wrestling and what was the drew you to the sport?

I got in to wrestling around the beginning of the Monday Night Wars, I really enjoyed the glitz and glamour, the story lines and the cutting edge attitude.

2. Tell us a little about Hashtag Wrestling and how it came about?

Hashtag Wrestling (Twitter or Tout: @HashtagWrest) came about really from having a dream one night that I had about owning my own promotion and I thought about it for a little while and decided to go for it, I saw some local promotions recently Total Action Wrestling and Extreme American Wrestling, and got some advice from some of the talents they have and thought to myself I could give this a go and took it from there really, if its long term thing then the futures looking bright for British wrestling, but I'm just taking it one day at a time.

3. How do you see the British Wrestling scene at the moment and how do you think it will develop in the next few years? 

The British wrestling scene is having a revival at the moment and I can see it going far, international tours and big stars from the big companies like WWE, TNA, ROH and Japan, shows the fans are what makes these shows great and the British fans are some of the best in the world, it would be amazing to have a couple of the British companies join together and use there knowledge and expertise to get a national television show and showcase what British wrestling is about and show the world.

4. What are your top three matches of all time and why?

My top 3 matches, wow that's gonna be hard.....

1) WWE SummerSlam 98 - Triple H Vs The Rock, Ladder match for the Intercontinental title. This brought the DX/Nation feud to a great conclusion.

2) ROH Man Up 2007 - Danielson Vs Morishima for the ROH World Title, a great display of American/Japanese style technical wrestling.

3) The last one isn't really a match its more a performer, the late great "Latino Heat" Eddie Guerrero, what a performer, in and out of the ring. Matches with Mysterio, Benoit, Angle the list goes on.

5. Where can our readers find your work and what have you got coming up?

At the moment we are still a start up promotion we are looking at doing shows in the south of England at the moment, Beds, Herts and Bucks, but eventually we would love to do some cross promotion stuff around the country and possible even internationally. We want to showcase the best in Heavyweight, Duo's (our tag division) and Vixen's.
