Zero1/Super Fireworks First Ever Bob Sapp Current Blast review (5.12.17)

Zero1/Super Fireworks First Ever Bob Sapp Current Blast!   May 12 2017   This show is based entirely around the concept that Bob Sapp hasn’t done an explosions match and Atsushi Onita is on his latest retirement tour so it’s a special attraction.

NJPW Dominion review (6.11.17)

NJPW Dominion   June 11 2017   We’re in Osaka at Osaka-Jo Hall. The English language commentary comes from Kevin Kelly and Don Callis. I’m reasonably happy with this team.

AJPW Champion Carnival Final review (4.30.17)

AJPW Champion Carnival Final   April 30 2017   We’re in Fukuoka, Japan at the Hakata Star Lanes.

NJPW Best of the Super Juniors   May 18 2017   We’re in Tokyo, Japan at Korakuen Hall for night two of the 2017 Best of the Super Juniors tournament. Much like during the G1 I got behind immediately and it’s a massive struggle to ever catch up. And I guarantee as soon as I… Continue Reading

Scorn and derision is handed out (but limited) to: Rip Rogers, Randy Orton, Daniel Hinkles, Bubba Dudley, Ryan Smile, …dive, music, tories, and your mum. Continue Reading
