James Tighe (March 27, 1982) is a semi-retired English professional wrestler. He is best known for his work with Frontier Wrestling Alliance. He currently competes around the United Kingdom.

Professional wrestling career

In the FWA, Tighe was always billed as the 'first son' of the FWA Academy, having been the first wrestler to graduate. He won a tournament to become the first FWA Academy champion, beating Eamon Shrahan. Shrahan would beat Tighe a few months later to become the champion.

In the latter half of 2004, Tighe was engaged in a brief feud with AJ Styles. Tighe defeated Styles at FWA Vendetta 2004 by disqualification, only to be defeated in turn at FWA British Uprising III in a 30-min Iron Man Match.

James Tighe also appeared on International Showdown in March 2005, teaming with then GHC Tag Team Champions Doug Williams and Scorpio to win a 6-man tag team match against Tiger Emperor, Mitsuharu Misawa and Yoshinari Ogawa.

In February 2010, Tighe competed in a 2-falls-to-a-finish match which consisted of 6 5-minute rounds against Joel Redman for the Devon Wrestling Association in Teignmouth, UK. He lost by two falls to one, by disqualification when Redman had the referee believe that Tighe had used a steel chair.

Tighe also played a part in training current WWE talent Drew Mcintyre.
