We are so close to being up to date. Here we are kind of on day 4 of our catch up with a show that had Nathan Cruz wrestling on it which makes it one of the best shows so far because I like watching Nathan Cruz wrestle.
So much happened in Episode 2. A new GM, very big boys wrestling with very smol boys… Martin Kirby being a dick.
THIS week the Local Hero returns, the Anti Fun Police start their plan and we FINALLY get the blow off to Primate vs Gabriel Kidd.
Stacked was just that… Stacked.
It had some great matches, some not so great matches and everything in between. It breathed new life into old feuds, created new feuds with new faces and gave us a whole bunch of new number one contenders to the titles giving DEFIANT a new feel as it inches closer to Loaded coming back weekly (well it is back but when this was on it was a while still till now if you get my meaning.)
So on we go to Stacked 2018. It promises to be a brilliant show what with Walter vs Ospreay, Kirby vs Hendry and all our new favourites.
I am so pumped which is great because it has my love of wrestling back.
Again, because I want it clear I can not PICK 10 wrestlers without leaving out another 10 that I love, this is in no order. It literally is the first 10 names that came off the top of my head with one or two being changed because I realised that I had named 10 people I’d been watching recently and trying to pull some memories out of the bag from earlier in the year.
If I had to pick one person to be my wrestler of 2018 it would be David Starr mainly because I don’t think I’ve seen a bad match with him in and I just think he’s a massive plus to the UK scene no matter what others seemed to think but I would instantly be then going “umm but I also think Brookes had a stand out year and remember when Walter did this or how Davis is being kick ass in single competition in PROGRESS or everything that Havoc has done or how much I love Country Big Josh Knott (who didn’t make this list sadly)..” and I would be here forever.
So here are 10 I loved.
I am also perfectly aware they are all male too.
So I went to my second CPW show of the year, I said in the 5 Things… blog that they kind of made it so I don’t want to miss a single one of their show and this one really was a must see show.
Unfortunately I had the beginnings of a cold on Saturday and since then have just got slowly worse so the review took longer and to be pretty honest is pretty all over the place. So I apologise for that.
Not as late as I have been in recent times but DEFIANT Wrestling had Built to Destroy this weekend which was a absolutely packed show with some very interesting matches. Really looking forward to this after Road to Destruction was so good.
I might in the coming months start instead of reviewing RAW and SmackDown doing a 5 Things… Review instead. I thought I’d give it a try with this show even though its a different beast, the WWE ones might end up being less a 5 things as in 5 THINGS but 5 things spread across a few different things… We’ll come to that when it happens though.
So 5 Things about DEFIANT Wrestling’s Road to Destruction!
It feels weird having these Road to… mini PPVS. Like I’m not too sure how I like the non-weekly show format but if its what is best for them then that is what is best for them. It meant that I had 0 need to run out and watch this when it came online until I had a bunch of time to myself.
So I’ve made one blog in the past about my view on Intergender wrestling, there has been a big thing with someone tweeting Jimmy Havoc saying it is ruining wrestling so I thought I’d make another one making my views even clearer on the subject.
