First ever Breed Wrestling New Breed Champion ✌️

From Wakefield in Yorkshire, he started training at the age of 11 and currently trains at NGW in West Yorkshire by Nathan Cruz. His first training match was in 2012 and debuted professionally in 2017.

Since then one of his standout matches was been against Kip Sabian at Tuesday Night Graps.

After that match, Kip went onto Instagram to praise working with Joe and called him ‘the future of the industry’ and also refers to him as his ‘wrestling son’ 


Joe has goals to become pro (after school of course) and his dream match would be against Rey Mysterio – if the powers that be can organise that – it would be an amazing match. 

At the age of 16, he already has a belt to his name from Breed Pro Wrestling and came up against Omari and Connor Mills at their recent show in Sheffield in which Joe was crowned champion of the New Breed. 

He has also had the titles of 4GW Airborne Championship, HOPE: King of Flight Championship and is the current HOPE Young Guns Champion. 


Keep an eye out for Joe Nelson.

That kind of talent in such a young guy will not be wasted.
