The NGW 10th Anniversary Show marks a decade in which NGW has grown from humble beginnings into one of the top wrestling promotions in Europe.

NGW started off in 2008 when a group of friends and local wrestling fans decided to run small shows at the Eastmount Centre in Longhill estate in Hull, England.

After continually selling out the venue, NGW moved to the Sports Arena until they – and a number of other local organisations – were evicted because of Hull City Football Club’s plans to put in artificial turf and use it for their own purposes.

After striking a deal with Hull City Council, NGW moved its family-friendly shows to Hull City Hall and their last event, two days before Christmas, was so busy that people had to be turned away at the door because it was over capacity.

Now run by Hull promoter Richard Dunn, NGW has also signed a local TV deal to broadcast its ‘British Wrestling Weekly’ TV show in many major UK cities and also in 34 countries all over the world. The 10th Anniversary Show will be a TV taping for British Wrestling Weekly.

Executive producer is TV star and wrestling fan Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett from quiz show The Chase.

In 2016 NGW signed the biggest wrestling deal in Europe, to run almost 100 shows a year at Butlin’s holiday camps meaning that last year NGW was watched by a total of 300,000 people live.
