There are fewer people in the UK wrestling scene with the broad range of experience as Greg Lambert. He promoted shows for FWA before starting his own independent promotion, XWA, in 2007 from the ashes of the recently closed FWA. XWA has gone on to become one of the most respected promotions in the UK regularly attracting sell out crowds to its ‘home ground’ the Morecambe Dome.
This is not least in part to Greg’s outstanding skills as a booker which he honed as Assistant Booker in FWA from 2004 before taking over the day to day running of the company in 2006. In addition to currently booking XWA he also works as part of the booking committee for FWA alongside Alex Shane.
Greg played the on screen role in the original incarnation of FWA as the manager of ‘The Family’, one of the most controversial factions in UK wrestling history. From this work he is widely regarded as one of the best on screen managers in the UK today. He currently works on screen for XWA as the manager of the company and also as a commentator for FWA, where his on screen chemistry with co-commentator Dave Bradshaw has made him one of the most entertaining voices in the business today.
Greg has also been involved in various capacities with some of the biggest events to take place on UK soil including assisting with FWA British Uprising 3 (2004), International Showdown (2005), Universal Uproar (2005), King of Europe Cup (2007) and TNA’s first UK tour (2008).
Along with this multitude of skills, Greg is a well respected journalist in the wrestling industry. He has been a guest host on Talk Sport Radio several times and has been writing for Power Slam Magazine since 2002 including interviewing some of the top stars of the industry from around the world.
In 2009 XWA opened their own training school and were one of the first schools in the country to adopt the BWC’s syllabus and grading scheme. Their students are continually impressing instructors and examiners with the high calibre of grading results and progress of trainees.
