As I’ve attempted to in the past I shall be reviewing a PPV without having watched TOO much of RAW or SmackDown recently. With some interesting match ups it’ll be fun to see what happens at the Biggest Party of the Summer.
After two days of shows Pride finally set up camp in Plymouth for their big Heroes & Legends 5 show. So many of the names advertised for the show didn’t make it for various reasons but they managed to pull one of the best nights of wrestling out of the bag anyway.
I think I said in the UPW review that Taunton tends to be rather special. I met RVD, Scott Hall and Cody Rhodes there and now we are going to a new venue at the Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre to see Simon Grimm, formerly Simon Gotch of WWE’s Vaudevillains and as most of you know the only reason I watched and reviewed NXT back in the day and one of my absolute favourite wrestlers currently in the world.
Also in case you didn’t see the post about Photobucket there will no longer be photos in the reviews as you have to pay for third party hosting. I have instead uploaded a ton more photos into individual match albums on our Facebook page and will slowly upload all past events onto Facebook too so please like the Facebook page not only for updates but for all my millions and millions of photos.
So there is always a big debate when intergender matches come up on how they should be played. Should they be purely tag teams when only the men can fight the men and the women the women or should men and women be able to fight each other?
Its a question that doesn’t really have a yes or no answer but the answer lies somewhere in between…..
We all know now, and if you don’t just don’t read, what happened at the end of the Women’s first ever MitB ladder match.
Whilst I was angry on Twitter at the time I’ve calmed down a little now to put my thoughts into words but I guess 140 characters just aren’t enough so I’ll do it here.
Just over a year ago, well last year in January, I went to Wellsprings in Taunton to see Kenny Omega fight Ultimo Tiger. This time I went to Wellsprings to see fellow Bullet Club member and absolute legend Cody Rhodes. To say this venue is becoming a very important one in my life is a understatement. This time out I was going to see UPW for the very first time too.
So in their third event in two weeks Pride returned to my hometown of Plymouth with their heavyweight champion Bram and James Storm ready to face each other for the title.
Another great evening for all involved was about to be had.
