Rev Pro – Orlando: England Comes to America….with a Bunch of Americans

Rev Pro: Orlando Date: March 31, 2017 Location: Wyndham Orlando Resort, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Andy Quidlan, Gilligan Gordon Somehow I hadn’t gotten around to this one.

Took in the Rev Pro Wrestling Show (And a Bit of Annoyance at WWE)

As part of the Wrestlemania week festivities, I took in the Revolution Pro Wrestling show. They’re a British company with major names like Ricochet, Will Ospreay, Marty Scurll and Zack Sabre Jr. so I had to take in a card with that kind of talent included. This was part of the WrestleCon weekend events so […]

Middle Kingdom Wrestling Date: January 20, 2017 Location: Pattaya Boxing Stadium, Pattaya, Chon Buri, Thailand Commentator: Al Leung If I remember right, the previous season ended with a line about things picking up in the spring so I’m not entirely sure what this is. This one is labeled as a Thailand Edition though so maybe […]
