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.

Wrestling Hub May Picks

Two things.

1/ I am fully aware I missed April. No reason why, I just completely forgot about it until mid-way through May and decided there was no point doing it then.

2/ You might have guessed I’m patchy at best at watching anything but my local companies so will only be doing it based on the Pride/Plymouth/Chaos shows I’ve been to this month.

Oh I guess there is another thing…

There haven’t been any female wrestling in the four shows I’ve been to so we’ll skip it for a month (another month.)

So below you’ll see what I have to choose from. Its a hard month to pick winners from.

Plymouth Wrestling Association : Fall Out

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.

Pride Promotions returning to Plymouth

So it has been announced. September 4th Pro Wrestling Pride will be returning to the great city of Plymouth (only great because I live here of course…) with special guest Raven.

They have moved homes from the Holiday Inn which homed both their Hurricane and Rock ‘N’ Rollas event and will now be in the Guildhall which is a fantastic venue. For most of us who grew up down here our love for wrestling as kids ended up with us going to watch wrestling in the Guildhall. In fact funny thing was on the train back from their event on Sunday Karla suddenly said that she remembers going to see the Bushwhackers in the Guildhall, a event I remember really well myself.

Follow them on Facebook for more news and stuff….

Lets face it… I have now said nearly every single event they won’t be able to top it and they manage to do so. Carlito, Benjamin, Suzuki, Dragon and Kidd in Penzance. RVD and Anderson in Taunton. Scotty 2 Hotty, Hornswoggle, PJ Black, Williams and Hardcore Holly in Paignton. Now Raven and Williams in Plymouth? These guys are seriously killing it this year.

Of course all the favs will be there too and its well worth the price of the ticket just to get to see guys like Eddie Ryan, Big Grizzly, Ultimo Tiger (especially Tiger…), House of Bones, The Soul Society, The Magnums and Scotty Essex anyway. By the end of the first match you’ll have your moneys worth everything else is just a bonus.

So if you can get to Plymouth or if like me you live here, get your tickets.

Pride Promotions : Teignmouth May 22nd

The final part of my birthday weekend saw a trip to Teignmouth to see Pride. I mean no weekend is complete without going to see them and all the weekends without a Pride show kinda end up being pretty boring.

After a eventful trek to Chaos the day before it was nice to not have a three hour travel distance to go see wrestling.

With Johnny Gargano and Bram on the card it was going to be a great night.

Pro Wrestling Pride Show TONIGHT!

So Pride have their show in Teignmouth tonight featuring Bram, Johnny Gargano and Johnny Kidd as well as all our favourite regulars like Big Grizzly Steve Griffiths, Eddie Ryan, Scotty Essex, The Soul Society, House of Bones and Ultimo Tiger.

What I’m going to be doing this evening is watching this amazing card…

So if you can get to Teignmouth go. I shall have my review of the night up tomorrow.

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!)
