Many smaller British promoters were increasingly abandoning their British identity in favour of "WWF Tribute" shows, with British performers crudely imitating World Wrestling Federation stars.
Conway began to promote his TWA as an alternative, featuring more serious wrestling in much the same way as All Star had previously targeted Joint fans disaffected with Big Daddy.
All Star duly adapted to meet the challenge, recruiting a new generation of wrestlers such as Dean Allmark and Robbie Dynamite and signing up such stars as "American Dragon" Bryan Danielson.
The promotional war came to an abrupt end in when Conway relocated to Thailand , closing down the TWA which he briefly tried to transplant to his new country as the "Thai Wrestling Alliance".
Nowadays, All Star tours extensively and successfully with shows mixing British Wrestling tradition with family entertainment, while another company, John Freemantle's group Premier Promotions, established in presents a more purist version of British Wrestling.
In the mids, Adam Mumford's Revolution British Wrestling promotion run as an adjunct of his wrestling tape trading business in much the same manner as the American Ring Of Honor promotion in its infancy picked up where TWA left off with promoting the British Welterweight and British Middleweight titles.
After the company ceased promoting in , LDN Wrestling emerged as a British-based World of Sport —style product that has brought many of the legendary names out of retirement such as Kendo Nagasaki , Johnny Saint and Johnny Kincaid.
Starting in the autumn of , it began a full-time touring schedule of shows in a bid to compete with All Star, often at some of All Star's main regular venues.
A number of the new generation of British wrestlers who made their name on the new domestic circuit would go on to international recognition, including Doug Williams and Nigel McGuinness.
With the advent of digital satellite television British wrestling — including vintage ITV footage — would be featured heavily on the short-lived Wrestling Channel.
Standing apart from all this was the rise of "Americanised" promotions in the UK. In the early s, WAW and Hammerlock, both run by veterans of the traditional British circuit, emerged producing shows more in line with the slick entertainment ethos of American wrestling.
In the late s, the success and popularity of the American Extreme Championship Wrestling promotion, which specifically emphasised its own small scale and "underground" nature, combined with the growth of internet discussion boards and tape trading, generated a new interest in British wrestling among local fans of the American wrestling scene.
Many of the promotions which started during this time were directly influenced by the style of ECW and most were designed to appeal more to smart mark fans rather than the more mainstream audiences targeted by the classic British wrestling era.
The most high-profile American-style promotion of this period was the Universal Wrestling Alliance UWA which aired a regular television show on controversial satellite channel L!
VE TV throughout much of the channel's lifetime. A large number of other smaller promotions were established throughout the s, focusing entirely on British talent.
Boundaries between the "traditional" and "Americanised" promotions were increasingly broken down after FWA's "Old School vs New School" storyline which saw a group of traditional ITV—era veterans invade the promotion.
In , British television network ITV tried to make use of the revived popularity of professional wrestling by starting a Saturday night prime time show called Celebrity Wrestling , featuring celebrities in wrestling style bouts.
The show received a feeling of derision by professional wrestling fans and was shortly moved to Sunday mornings after being beaten in audience share by Doctor Who for five weeks.
Williams' British Wrestling Federation a name recycled from the aforementioned s promotional alliance produced Welsh—language television wrestling programmes for the bilingual S4C channel in the s and s under the title Reslo.
Scotland was represented as part of Joint Promotions by Relwyskow Promotions, run by the family of George de Relwyskow.
Relwyskow Promotions was not included in the buyouts of Joint Promotions in the ss and remained under its original management while continuing to receive a proportion of Joint Promotions' TV coverage.
It remained active until the retirement of Ann Relwyskow in the s. In and again in , television tapings were held in Scotland and matches screened on Grampian Television and STV.
Due to The Troubles , in the s and s these wrestlers and others would migrate to mainland Britain and find success there in Hamill's case, under as mask, billed as Kung Fu.
The younger Finlay would become a multiple champion and later succeed in America. Later in the s and s, transmissions of Williams' Reslo programme on S4C could be received in much of the southern and eastern Republic of Ireland and Williams organised several tours of Ireland with his show's roster during this time.

Meanwhile, professionally booked matches and amateur contests favoured pins that catered to the broader and more gentle paying fan-base.
The impact of catch wrestling on modern-day amateur wrestling is also well established. The wrestling tradition of Iowa is rooted in catch wrestling as Farmer Burns and his student Frank Gotch are known as the grandfathers of wrestling in Iowa.
A notable match in was between two prime representatives of their respective crafts: the American catch wrestler Ad Santel was the World Light Heavyweight Champion in catch wrestling, while Tokugoro Ito, a 5th degree black belt in judo, claimed to be the World Judo Champion.
Santel defeated Ito and proclaimed himself World Judo Champion. The response from Jigoro Kano 's Kodokan was swift and came in the form of another challenger, 4th degree black belt Daisuke Sakai.
Santel, however, still defeated the Kodokan Judo representative. Santel also drew with 5th degree black belt Hikoo Shoji. The challenge matches stopped after Santel gave up on the claim of being the World Judo Champion in in order to pursue a career in full-time professional wrestling.
Although Tokugoro Ito avenged his loss to Santel with a choke ,  official Kodokan representatives proved unable to imitate Ito's success.
Just as Ito was the only Japanese judoka to overcome Santel, Santel was the only Western catch-wrestler on record as having a win over Ito, who also regularly challenged other grappling styles.
Starting from , one of these professional wrestlers , Inoki, hosted a series of mixed martial arts bouts against the champions of other disciplines.
This resulted in unprecedented popularity of the clash-of-styles bouts in Japan. His matches showcased catch wrestling moves like the sleeper hold, cross arm breaker, seated armbar, Indian deathlock and keylock.
Gotch's students formed the original Universal Wrestling Federation Japan in which gave rise to shoot-style matches.
The UWF movement was led by catch wrestlers and gave rise to the mixed martial arts boom in Japan. Catch wrestling forms the base of Japan 's martial art of shoot wrestling.
Japanese professional wrestling and a majority of the Japanese fighters from Pancrase , Shooto and the now defunct RINGS bear links to catch wrestling.
The term no holds barred was used originally to describe the wrestling method prevalent in catch wrestling tournaments during the late 19th century wherein no wrestling holds were banned from the competition, regardless of how dangerous they might be.
