Big Japan Wrestling (1.2.19) review

BJW   January 2 2019   We’re in Tokyo, Japan at Korakuen Hall. BJ Core isn’t running at the moment so I’m watching a burn from Samurai TV’s show that aired on 1/12 and is edited to less than two hours. There was a big crowd for this one; 1500+, including a lot of gaijin… Continue Reading

TJP Tokyo Joshi Pro ’19 (1.4.19) review

TJP Tokyo Joshi Pro ‘19   January 4 2019   We’re in Tokyo, Japan at Korakuen Hall and this was the TJP show that took place right before Wrestle Kingdom. This is the first time I’ve watched TJP on the new DDT player and it’s certainly an improvement over the fucking terrible last one. This… Continue Reading

MLW Fusion 39 (1.12.19) review

MLW Fusion 39   January 12 2019   We’re in Miami, Florida for MLW Fusion. Hosts are Tony Schiavone and Rich Bocchini. We start out backstage with Tom Lawlor eavesdropping Selina yelling at Sami Callihan. Low Ki addresses the cameras and says he’ll retire as MLW champion whenever he wants to. His voice is all… Continue Reading

CMLL Super Viernes (1.4.19) review

CMLL Super Viernes (1.4.19) review

CMLL Super Viernes   January 4 2019   As January rolls around I dip my toes into lucha once again. I generally prefer AAA as it’s wackier and has more Westernised rules but CMLL have a metric fuck tonne of talent over there so it’s well worth a gander. I have deliberately selected this one,… Continue Reading

Zero1 Happy New Year (1.1.19) review

Zero1 Happy New Year   January 1 2019   Happy New Year! I wish this aired live so my new year’s day morning had been the joyousness of Zero1.   Tomoya Hirata vs. Shoki Kitamura Hirata is making his Zero1 debut. He’s a regular for FREEDOMS.

NXT UK TakeOver Blackpool review (1.12.19)

NXT UK Takeover Blackpool   January 12 2019   This is the very first NXT UK Takeover show. It’s not a strong card, which is quite disappointing but at least in Pete Dunne WWE have a genuine flag bearer. Moustache Mountain have done a good job getting over in the USA too. The potential showstealer… Continue Reading

Impact Wrestling Homecoming review (1.6.19)

Impact Wrestling Homecoming   January 6 2019   We’re in Nashville, Tennessee at the Asylum. This is the first Impact show I’ve seen in a while and I’ve been hearing good things about the promotion. I guess I’ve just been burned one time too many and they’re still booking Sami Callihan but I’m trying to… Continue Reading

WWE 205 Live (1.9.19) review

205 Live 111   January 9 2019   205 Live has been sneaky good for a year now. I’ve been watching it but basically skipping to the matches I wanted to see. I’m going to try and watch it more consistently in 2019. Unless it goes to shit.   Noam Dar vs. Tony Nese Dar… Continue Reading

WWE Smackdown review (1.8.19)

WWE Smackdown   January 8 2019   We’re in Jacksonville, Florida. Home of All Elite Wrestling and the Jacksonville Jaguars owner, saviour of WWE, Shahid Khan. Why saviour of WWE? Simple. Competition provokes WWE to deliver and they’ve been coasting for fucking years. Case in point; the show opens with Daniel Bryan slaughtering the general… Continue Reading
