Ramblings About’s Top Ten Matches Of June 2019

Spoiler. Credit: NJPW

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.

AEW Fyter Fest (29/6/19) Review

AEW’s first show was widely hailed as a success. Double Or Nothing had the eyes of the wrestling world on it, and this fledgeling company stepped up, but Fyter Fest is a different beast.

They’ve proven they can sell the tickets, create the WrestleMania atmosphere and put a star-studded card together. The only question left was whether they could put on a show worthy of the hype. I guess we should find out.

It’s hard to judge where Lit Up sits on the WrestleMania Weekend silliness spectrum. A card of intergender matches taking place at midnight has the potential to go either way. The timing certainly hints towards at least a touch of the ridiculous as I’m guessing most of the audience have had a drink or two. Let’s just say that there’s the potential for all kinds of madness to go down.
