AEW returned to PPV for the first time since Dynamite arrived on TV, and it came in a week that saw NXT close the gap in the rating war. There is a strong argument to be made that they needed a big show, and I guess it is time to find out whether they pulled it off.

I’m going to keep reviewing Dynamite until I miss a week. That will either happen due to an abundance of other wrestling or because I decide it’s no longer any good. What do you reckon will come first? I’m feeling optimistic, so let’s go for for option number one.

It’s finally fucking here! After too many months and even more opinion pieces, AEW’s TV kicked off on Wednesday night, and I shall be giving it a review. I doubt I’ll be doing this weekly, but the first one does feel like a big deal, so I figured I’d throw my opinion into the ring.

The Wrestling Media

It might surprise those of you who regularly read the grammatical nightmares that are my ramblings, but I have a Master’s degree in Journalism. In another world where the industry wasn’t dying, and I had the enthusiasm to push towards getting a proper job, there is every chance I would be working as a journalist right now. I wouldn’t be very good at it, but if Boris Johnson can do it, I’m sure I would have managed.

I haven’t watched as much wrestling as I would have liked this month (which is still too much wrestling by most people’s standards), so this is sadly another New Japan heavy list. It’s not as fun doing that, as I imagine most people will have seen these matches, but I do also suspect it happens because, well, NJPW puts on the best wrestling. Still, there are a few other companies in there and, hopefully, you find a gem you were unaware of.

Ramblings About’s Top Ten Matches of May 2019

It’s becoming a recurring theme for this list to go up a bit late, but in my defence, there is a lot of wrestling that I want to review. I have a habit of giving that precedence and I’m not even sure why. Anyway, I need to apologise because this is a New Japan heavy list. I watched every single Super Juniors’ show and while I did catch some other bits and pieces, it was less than I would have liked. Still, it was one hell of a tournament, so I’m pretty sure that every match justified its spot on the list.

AEW: The Joy Of Choice

It’s a new world.

Times they are a-changin’. Old Bob probably wasn’t reflecting on the shifting tides of the wrestling industry, but it seems a pertinent song in 2019’s world of graps. In the last few months, there hasn’t been so much a shake-up as someone’s punted the whole thing across a car park just to see what would happen. Why a car park? Fuck knows, to be honest.
