wXw Shortcut to the Top review (8.4.18)

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

Rev Pro Live in Southampton 3 review (6.4.18)

Rev Pro Live in Southampton 3   June 4 2018   This might seem like a strange show to select to write about, given that Rev Pro run loads of these small shows I’ve routinely ignored them all year.

wXw Superstars of Wrestling review (5.5.18)

wXw Superstars of Wrestling   May 5 2018   We’re in Oberhausen at the Turbinenhalle. A great card produced a strong circa 750 crowd. Hosts are Rico Bushido and “Massive” Jurn Simmons.

Rev Pro Epic Encounter review (5.11.18)

Rev Pro Epic Encounter   May 11 2018   We’re in Bethnal Green, London at the historic York Hall proving that Charlie Morgan’s balcony dive didn’t get wrestling banned from there.
