NXT Plymouth 17th June

Last night I went to see NXT live here in Plymouth. I had been super excited about it since the moment I knew they were coming and managed to get tickets on O2 priorities before they were released for general sales. Couldn’t believe how good the seats where till we got in, it wasn’t front row but we were in the tiered seating pretty much in the middle (not quite) with a awesome view.

Obviously we had a great night.

Ultimo Tiger vs Sami Callihan Announced for Prides Return to Penzance

You might be fed up of me sharing stuff that Pro Wrestling Pride have announced in the last day or so but here is yet another brilliant announcement.

I kind of give it away in the title so I’ll just post the photo…

Tiger has faced so many big challenges this year and has taken them on head first, improving with every encounter and putting on insanely brilliant matches. He was our wrestler of the month for January and been in the running every month since. When Pride went to Penzance at the beginning of the month he had one of the best matches you’ll see all year against Kotaro Suzuki and it looks like after fighting with Kenny Omega and even TNA’s Bram in a Morrison’s car park he’s got yet another ridiculous mountain to climb.

Every defeat has made Tiger stronger and I have every faith in him being able to beat the Death Machine. Then again if he doesn’t it’ll just make him stronger again. Seriously Tiger always fights with so much heart. The guy is extremely talented, improves every single time he steps into the ring and is such a positive guy. He’s also one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet but when he gets in that ring he kicks ass. Such a big fan of Tiger’s but you’ll see why when you buy a ticket to Penzance… Or Taunton…. Or Paignton… Or Plymouth… Or Tiverton for DWA this Saturday (he announced on his Facebook as I was writing this…) Or check out one of the links I post below. Its hard not to love this guy.

I don’t really need to tell you anything about Sami Callihan, everyone knows how great he is. This match is going to be huge.

If you’ve never seen Tiger you the chance to see his match against Suzuki on the Pride YouTube channel…

Kotaro Suzuki vs Ultimo Tiger

ORRR you could watch his match against Kenny Omega…

Kenny Omega vs Ultimo Tiger

In fact just go over there and watch their stuff because its awesome. All of it.

Tickets for Penzance can obviously be brought on their website…

ANNND because it took me a lifetime to write this I might as well tell you that they are selling a Ultimo Tiger signed print that you can also buy at their store…

You know you have a true friend when you moan about wanting it on Twitter and they go off and buy you one. Yes… I might not have £6 (£5 for the print and £1 for postage well worth it) but whining on Twitter got me one from the lovely Fiona. Come on… You should have guessed if I hadn’t got it right off the bat the second I got paid I’d be buying one.

That is truly it though, I have nothing else to add to it. Go buy tickets, get a signed print (because why not? Tiger is awesome.) Go watch some great wrestling and be happy.

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!)

NXT 30/3/16 Review

Seeing I’ll be reviewing Take Over Dallas  I thought it would make sense to first at least write about the last NXT episode. I have been keeping up with NXT in recent weeks but haven’t found the time to write about it.

Roadblock 2016 Review

The last stop before Wrestlemania (kind of, I never got that because there are loads of RAWs and SmackDowns between now and then so it isn’t really a last stop…) and we see if Dean Ambrose can change the main event of Wrestlemania.

NXT 23/12/15 Review

The last time I wrote a review for NXT, other then Take Over London, was in August. I feel kinda bad about that but for some reasons, maybe because I saw spoilers for the shows after Take Over Brooklyn and didn’t like the result or something, but Take Over London gave me the boot I needed to start watching once more.

Sorry its late I was working the 24th and wasn’t allowed to watch wrestling on Christmas day!

NXT Take Over London

I haven’t watched NXT for months! I was so happy to see the Vaudevillains win the tag team championship and then suddenly I stopped watching, never saw them as champions and the longer I wasn’t watching the harder it was to get back into.

So I am back for NXT Take Over London.

NXT Take Over : Brooklyn 2015 Review

We’ve made it to Take Over Brooklyn. It hasn’t been the most interesting of journeys but its one we’ve taken and we’ve gotten to the end of it. Its the first Take Over event that I’m staying up to watch so I’m extremely excited.

NXT Take Over Brooklyn 2015 Predictions

So my first predictions blog.

Unlike Pete I won’t be checking on my progress as the night goes on, I think just making the predictions is enough. They will be completely biased with little reason if I don’t want to give a reason so there….

Or in other words I’ll never vote against the VaudeVillains or Tyler Breeze because I’m a biased fan girl and I’m allowed to be crazy when it comes to them.
