There is wrestling tomorrow so I thought I’d let you know what was going on!
OK so I’ve been going to a lot of Pride shows this year and they do seem to get a load of people camping on the site on a Monday morning looking for the review. We know this thanks to the wonderful stats provided by WordPress and just how busy ALL Pride reviews are on a Monday following a new show.
This is just to let those who might be lurking here on Monday that there will NOT be a Pride review for their Teignmouth show.
I don’t usually announce when I’m NOT going to shows because I’m not that nice. And to be fair it was only really recently pointed out to me so I never saw the point (I do tend to write in reviews the next time I’m going to shows too.)
I AM however going to PWAs British Grand Prix event, their second event of the year, mainly because I brought the tickets before Pride announced their show, BUT the review possibly won’t be out on Monday. Unfortunately I am working Bank Holiday Monday and then going to a Easter Panto after work (I might even find time to review that!) so won’t even start the review till Tuesday. It usually takes me a long time to write my reviews anyway as there is a lot of editing and adding of photos to be done so if the review isn’t out on Tuesday evening it won’t be out till Saturday as I’m then working the rest of the week.
We know these reviews are some of our most popular, every day the top viewed posts are Pride reviews, so I wanted to keep you updated on the weekend ahead.
The good news (for people that read them not for me) is that after next week I’m back to my 14 hours in the middle of the week so Wrestlemania will be completely covered next weekend (Pete is still out of action) and I will be able to PROPERLY update the wrestling hub this time out.
The bad news is that I think the next time I’m going to see Pride is in May, there is the PWA anniversary show next month which I’ll be going too but that will probably be it. I will however have a special blog out sometime in April because it’ll be exactly a year since I first reviewed a PWA show. Its nearly as big a milestone as when I hit a whole year of reviewing One Piece live back in December (which I completely forgot to write anything about!)
More good news is that after being asked by James (and only James, I’m not going to pretend anyone else wanted it) I have decided to review the handful of Pride DVDs I have probably starting in April. Maybe one every fortnight or something. I’ll keep you updated on that one on Twitter though.
Obviously for those (like James) who might want to know the results of Prides show you can find their results on their webpage (http://www.prowrestlingpride.com/) or the lovely Mr Jonathan Orchard always reviews their shows on his blog (http://jonswrestleview.blogspot.co.uk/) so give him a look too as his blog is pretty awesome. Then of course they have their Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/pridepromotion) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/ProPWP) Honestly very sad I won’t be able to make it to their show, specially as I’m taking yet another friend (this time he actually LIKES wrestling) and Pride is just a experience and a half that you need to live (he’s coming to Penzance though so he’ll be fine!)
Shows I am going to for future reference are PWAs show tomorrow and their anniversary show on the 17th April featuring Drew Galloway (http://plymouthwrestling.co.uk/ <- book tickets on there.)
Then there is Prides May 8th show in Penzance staring a whole truckload of talent (https://www.facebook.com/events/1044422138941756/) Their June 26th show in Taunton staring RVD (https://www.facebook.com/events/588469441316250/) and, though I haven’t brought my tickets yet, their Heroes and Legends show on July 10th in Paignton (https://www.facebook.com/events/581338432022621/).
Also because its the day after my birthday, there is now a 24/7 bus from Plymouth to Bristol and I wanted too I’m going to Pro Wrestling Chaos May 21st show in Yate (https://www.facebook.com/events/1779606702266306/) which will be something different!
Don’t expect me to be this nice next time. Maybe I should write on my About page when I’m going where so people don’t just sit refreshing our page on a Monday morning (then again it does make us look 10 times more popular when you do it so maybe I’ll be mean and just not mention it again.)
Not that I’d ever pick a favourite, this blog DOESN’T at all sound like me sulking because I brought tickets to another show and can’t go see Tiger, or anything of the like… We wish Pride the best at their show in Teignmouth this weekend, if you can get to it go to it as its always a great show.
And if you are in Plymouth come to the Plymouth show!
(Please don’t think I’m really THAT sad about not going to Pride because I haven’t seen JD Knight wrestle in a long while and I miss him… I really miss him. Its become a daily occurrence for me to randomly mutter about how much I miss him to whoever is near me. People at work have been counting down the days to this show just so I’d stop with my actual count of how long its been since the last time I saw him, though you have Luc to thank that I ever knew how many hours that was. I just really love Prides wrestlers so its sad them being somewhere I can get to but can’t go to. Plus I have a Swampy to give to Scotty and having two Swampys in the house at the same time all the way to May is going to cost me a fortune!)
