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. This is another Wrestlemania weekend show that I got to take in live and the only regular wrestling show I went to all weekend that wasn’t run by WWE. […]

Lucha Underground – May 31, 2017: All Night Long…..Again!

Lucha Underground Date: May 31, 2017 Location: Lucha Underground Temple, Boyle Heights, California Commentators: Matt Striker, Vampiro So this still exists. We’re back into season 3 with the first show in four and a half months. The big story continues to be Johnny Mundo defending the Lucha Underground Title, which he’s putting on the line […]

WrestleCon Supershow 2017: I Don’t Do This Very Often

WrestleCon Supershow 2017 Date: March 31, 2017 Location: Wyndham Orlando Resort, Orlando, Florida Commentators: Marty DeRosa, Excalibur This is something I’ve heard about for a few years now and when I saw the card, there was no question about taking it in. Basically this is a HUGE indy show with talent from all over the […]

Took in WrestleCon Supershow

In addition to the Rev Pro show on Friday night, WrestleCon also put on a Supershow in the same room (and with a lot of the same talent). This was the definition of a supershow with a little bit of everything from comedy to violence to dueling chants. To say this was a lot more […]

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 – February 17, 2017: Big Sam and Others

Middle Kingdom Wrestling Date: February 17, 2017 Location: Pattaya Boxing Stadium, Pattaya, Chon Buri, Thailand Commentator: Al Leung We’re going to wrap up this very abbreviated season and hopefully head back to China where things are a bit better. The first show was a pretty mixed bad with one horrible match and one that was […]

Middle Kingdom Wrestling – January 20, 2017: Lost in Translation

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 […]

Lucha Underground – January 4, 2017: The Future Has To Be Eventually

Lucha Underground Date: January 4, 2017 Location: Lucha Underground Temple, Boyle Heights, California Commentators: Matt Striker, Vampiro We’re back to the promotion where Cage has a glove that gives him superpowers. Now, I don’t know about you but to me, that sounds FREAKING AWESOME. This show is starting to reach the point where they can […]

Lucha Underground – January 11, 2017: Hasta Eventually

Lucha Underground Date: January 11, 2017 Location: Lucha Underground Temple, Boyle Heights, California Commentators: Vampiro, Matt Striker We’re in a weird place at the moment in Lucha Underground as things are taking forever to get anywhere, though at the same time CAGE HAS FREAKING SUPERPOWERS. It’s hard to say where these shows are going to […]

Wrestle Kingdom XI: Just Yell at Me Already

Wrestle Kingdom 11 Date: January 4, 2017 Location: Tokyo Dome, Tokyo, Japan Attendance: 26,192 Commentators: Steve Corino, Kevin Kelly This is one of those shows that I do every year as I pretty much have no other option. While I only kind of follow New Japan, I almost always enjoy this show, even if I […]
