I swear it was only a week or so ago that I was putting together this list for the end of September, but here we are, the spookiest month of the year is in the bag, and alongside watching a shitload of horror films, I did find some time for wrestling. It ended up being quite a busy month, what with TJPW and Stardom running big events, the G1 ending (I didn’t watch it, but people still care) and AEW continuing to make things enjoyable in America.

I’d heard from the online chit chat that this guy was good, the best in the world according to some, and I was naturally intrigued. Yet, when Bryan came out, it was a bit underwhelming. Sure, the fans loved him, but to look at him, it was hard to be impressed.
