Rev Pro BJ Cup N1 review (9.8.18)

Rev Pro British J Cup N1   September 8 2018   We’re in Manchester at the Bowlers Exhibition Centre. Hosts are Kevin Kelly and Andy Boy Simmonz. This isn’t a venue I particularly like.

Suzuki September – Minoru Suzuki vs. Joe Coffey II (12.11.16)

Suzuki September – Minoru Suzuki vs. Joe Coffey II (12.11.16)

If you read my review of the first match, you know I think these guys don’t really have much chemistry. Well this was a FAR better match than their previous encounter. It probably helps that the crowd is a bit more familiar with Suzuki by this point, or that it felt like less of an… Continue Reading

wXw Shortcut to the Top   August 4 2018   We’re in Oberhausen, Germany for one of wXw’s marquee events; Shortcut to the Top, their Royal Rumble knock-off. I don’t care if it’s a blatant knock-off though because I love the 30-man staggered entrance format. It can provide all manner of intrigue and visitation to… Continue Reading

World of Sport review (8.4.18)

World of Sport   August 4 2018   I may have given the impression that I didn’t enjoy last week’s show. That’s not true. I may have disliked production and commentary but the wrestling was fine. Especially Ospreay/Smith Jr. Commentary comes from Alex Shane, So Cal Val and token authority figure Stu Bennett. The latter… Continue Reading

World of Sport review (7.28.18)

World of Sport   July 28 2018   Well, shit, let’s get this out of the fucking way shall we.   For starters ITV Hub is the biggest piece of shit website on the entire internet. Which takes some doing. I loathe it. For some reason whatever player they use doesn’t show on screenshots so…… Continue Reading
