FutureShock Guests:

Jack Gallagher:
The Extraordinary Gentleman Jack Gallagher is a grappler like no other. A life long student of the fighting arts, he carries himself with style outside the ring and like a scientist within it. Arguably one of the greatest wrestlers in the world, Mr Gallagher stole the show with recent bouts for WWE in their Cruiserweight Classic tournament.

"Coach" Sam Bailey:
When it comes to the squared circle Sam Bailey wants to be the very best, like no one ever was. This Manchester mat veteran is one of the most popular and decorated wrestlers in FutureShock history. Championships? He wants to catch 'em all.

Lana Austin:
The reigning and defending FutureShock women's champion. Lana Austin has carried her title with pride and dignity for more than a year, turning back the challenge of some of the best in the nation. Ashton born and bred, she's determined to fight for herself, her family and for all of the FutureShock faithful.

T-Bone:
The tattooed warrior from the trailer park... T-Bone is one of the most fearsome men to ever set foot in a FutureShock ring. Rapidly winning over the FutureShock faithful with his no-nonsense style, Bone has gone onto claim both the Futureshock Trophy and the FutureShock Championship. Opponents have been known to tremble as the crowd chants "T-Bone's gonna kill you..."

Wonderland:
Whomever it was that said that monsters aren't real had clearly never met Henry T. Grodd and Noah, collectively known as Wonderland. The FutureShock tag team champions are truly terrifying and have run roughsod over everyone that has stood in their way. Beware the Jabberwocky...
