This is extremely late and I apologise for that as I have quite a lot over the last few weeks. PWA celebrated their 8th anniversary in April with a great show with appearances from T-Bone and the UK Hooligans.
In the week of PWA’s anniversary show they gave a little mini-lecture on the last 500 years of wrestling. I went along because with three matches and a history lesson how could I ever say no?
Well at the end of the Rising event review instead of writing about the night I seemed to go into Fantasy Booker mode and couldn’t help it. So because it ended up being longer then the review itself I thought for fun I’d make a whole blog about it.
Before any smart arse comes along emphasis on the word FANTASY! I know that what they can do is limited but I thought it would be fun anyway. Of course feel free to add anything you’d like to see in the comments. For FUN.
PWA ended 2016 with a bang and absolutely everyone wants to see them carry on with the positive vibes going into the new year. Its been way too long since we have been to a PWA show so we were extremely excited to be back at the Plymouth School of Creative Arts in Milbay Road for their first event of 2017.
My home promotion, PWA is always a fun show to go to with some of the best talent on show and some of the friendliest staff around. They say they are a family and they very much are. A great family event every time and growing stronger every single time.

The final PWA show of the year promised to have PWA go out with a bang. After a amazing turn out for their last show I was under no doubt they would.
So I said I wasn’t going to another PWA show but then had a free ticket so went, I also said I wouldn’t review it but it was such a good night I’ve completely changed my mind on that too.
Possibly the worst attempt at writing something I’m ever going to do but I’ll do it anyway. Unfortunately for reasons beyond my control my memory is a bit on the fuzzy side.
PWA’s Fall Out show wasn’t the best but we’d never give up on them so we were out once again to watch some wrestling this Sunday evening.
PWA’s Anniversary show was something else. Was it nine matches in one night? Championships changing hands, The Winner NOT Winning and Eddie Ryan being screwed out of the TNA Heavyweight Championship.
One hell of a anniversary show.
With a re-match on the cards and new faces to PWA it couldn’t really be named better.
I know… I had a horrible self promotion blog earlier and now I’m going to do my big puppy dog eyes and try and convince you to let go of some of your money to help a great company that ya’ll know I love by now.
My local wrestling company (Plymouth Wrestling Association) need your help.
Yeah we don’t really get many wrestling fans coming through even when we’re on the ball with reviews and the like but if this can just reach out to a few people who read it and pledge a little bit it means a lot to me.
For just £10 you can help the company plus gain a great DVD for your collection (or start a wrestling DVD collection) I was there for the 7th Anniversary Show in the front row and it was a epic night. Like all Crowdfunders you put in and get something out of it. No matter where you are in the world if you like wrestling then you’ll love this show.
Headlined by TNA Champion Drew Galloway against one of the best talents in the UK, Pride of Plymouth himself the English Lion Eddie Ryan, the night was just epic.
Just look at the photos over there on the sidebar they are from the night, I haven’t finished uploading them to Instagram but it was just brilliant.
Why this means so much to me?
Just over a year ago was when I became suicidal. It was a PWA show that really helped me get through that. It was their 6th Anniversary Show (headlined by James Storm and Abyss against the UK Dominator and PJ Jones) that gave me a boost that helped me see a light through the dark times I was going through. Since October I’ve been going to PWA and Pride Promotion shows religiously, they give me a reason to want to be alive. I’ve always been a wrestling fan and these guys go above and beyond. If I had more money I’d give more (anyone that knows me knows I pledged £35 for a Eddie Ryan t-shirt, I don’t want anything else just the t-shirt!) unfortunately I only work part time so don’t have any more to give.
I’m not being over the top or anything but truthful when I say that PWA saved my life last year.
So even if you can just give a little please do. The company means a lot to me, both of them do. I’ve been able to meet some wonderful people, had so many happy moments and got to witness some of the great British talent that you might never have heard of (but for £10 right now you can add a DVD and the knowledge of their greatness to your DVD library!) but who entertain and are just too wonderful for words. I haven’t met many of the Plymouth wrestlers but the ones I have have always been wonderful and they go out of your way to make you comfortable. Even in the face of someone like me that looks like they’d throw up on you rather then talk to you.
(OK the PWA guys I’ve only ever met Eddie Ryan who is a saint who puts up with me nearly crying every time I see him. Dude don’t make me get out my Eddie Ryan pictures, they are honestly like grandchild pictures now I get them out and gush about how proud I am to be his fan all the time.)
PLUSSSSSS the 20th May marks my 27th birthday! Not that it means anything to anyone but if you could make a pledge it would make me a very happy person. Nope? Not working? I’m sorry….
Regardless. Even if this can just get a few retweets or reblogs or just helps spread the word that would be great.
Thank you for your time. Go back to
reading my fanfic on Ao3 enjoying your Bank Holiday Weekend.
Just for extra effect me and Swamp-a-Doodle sporting my PWA t-shirt. Loved the first one can’t wait for any and all new ones. So go spreading the word (someone… At least my two fanboys!)
