Pride Promotions Match Announcement for 26th June

So like… Yeah I don’t usually post just random match announcements and stuff on here (maybe I should just to annoy you all). We don’t have a big UK following anyway so I usually end up speaking to myself (or my fanboy) but I can’t help it (a little like the first time I ever even mentioned Pride when I cried about the Hurricane) so I’m gonna. I was close to doing it when they announced a different match for their show in Paignton but never did…

Anyway…. Have you heard that RVD is coming to Taunton (Somerset, UK) in June? If you haven’t and you can get there on the 26th then you might want to as they just announced that he’ll be up against none other then the Catch Division champion Scotty Essex.

Right so I don’t have to tell anyone how awesome RVD is do I? I mean I had RVD PJs as a kid and used to run around pretending to be him. Like he’s just amazing.

But do you know how amazing Scotty Essex is? Because he’s pretty damned awesome. If you don’t know how amazing Scotty is then you are seriously missing out. If you want me to tell you how awesome Scotty is pull up a chair in the comments and I will do so.

You ain’t gonna want to miss this one because I’m telling you now that its going to be one INCREDIBLE match. It was only Sunday that Scotty was up against Carlito in a fantastic match but this, THIS is going to be a show stealer.

I’ve only just stopped screaming down the phone to nearly everyone I know about it (OK three people because I don’t know that many people.)

If you can go then you’d be silly not too and this is only one match. ONE MATCH. They also have Mr Anderson coming AND a four way tag team ladder match which will see Danny Jones & Doug Williams vs The House of Bones vs The Soul Society vs The Magnums. PLUSSSSSSS they still have guys like Big Grizzly Steve Griffiths, the English Lion Eddie Ryan, Ultimo Tiger, sweet little Adam da Silva, Chris Andrews and like SOOO many more people. Plus you’ll get to see Vixxen and she’s awesome. Honestly ALL those names are worth the price of a ticket alone (have you SEEN me tell you how wonderful Eddie Ryan and Ultimo Tiger are because seriously…. I talk about them a lot) so regardless of this ONE MEGA AWESOME match you are going to have a night you’ll probably never forget.

Like seriously if you don’t get excited by this then you have no soul. OOORRR else you aren’t as weird as I am.

Seriously check the event out if you can get to it, if you get tickets rub it in your friends face because it is gonna be one hell of a event. If you can’t get to it check it out anyway and convince yourself you can go.

I promise only to mention this once or twice again in my lifetime…. Possibly. Just wait till Tigers match is announced THEN you’ll hate me. Now that I’ve posted about Scotty I’ll have to balance it with Tiger too, I’m not very sorry but you can pretend I am if it makes you feel better.

No more Pride talk until after their next show I promise. (I’m not even lying because I’m too busy working and getting excited for my birthday, plus Mayoiga, Bungo Stray Dogs and Kiznaiver.)

Right… So… Ummm… Back to anime everyone, nothing to see here! (I’m watching Flying Witch right now so review will be out soon!)

PWA Crowdfunder Signal Boost

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.

http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/plymouth-wrestling/?

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!)

Pro Wrestling Pride Eye of the Hurricane Plymouth 13th September

EDIT : ALL PHOTOS REMOVED AFTER PHOTOBUCKET CHANGED THEIR POLICY…

I don’t really have much to say about my week to make a weekly post (more working overtime, more tiredness, more complaining… It can wait till this Sunday) so I thought I’d give you all a heads up on something we’ve been talking about a lot. I’m going to another wrestling event locally.

Ran by Pro Wrestling Pride who I have actually been dying to see a show of (mainly because they’ve had some of my fav American wrestlers over but their shows are always that little too far out on days that I’m working the next day or on the day!) and featuring my hero. Or one of them. The story will be under the cut and has nothing to do with this.

They are in Bodmin the day before, we’ll obviously be at the Plymouth show on the 13th, just paid for my tickets.

For more information visit their event page :

We’ll be there and one day I will learn how to drive and be able to go to events regardless. One day. Till then I’ll have to find a friend who can drive and bug them.

FIFA 2014 World Cup : England v Italy

So my second live blog of the tournament. We have ITV’s underdog England v Andrea Pirlo (or Italy… But mainly Pirlo.)

I don’t have to pick sides as I do love Italy, so yes the blog will be Italy biased.

This is actually the first match I’m looking forward to in the first round of matches. Mainly because I love Italy (the only other team I love as much is Germany) and because it gives me a real excuse for being up late tomorrow!

So yes… Lets go Italy!!!
