DDT New Year Special 2020! (3/1/20) Review

On the 3rd of January 2020, I equalled the number of wrestling shows that I went to in 2019. That’s primarily because I was saving money to come here, but still, it’s a step up. It was my third trip to Korakuen since I’d arrived in Japan that smashed in the equaliser and it was to see DDT all on their lonesome without the help of those scary boys in Big Japan. I was looking for laughs and good wrestling, did they deliver? Let’s find out.

DDT D-Oh Grand Prix Final (28/12/19) Review

I intended to review this entire show, but it was already a week ago, and I’ve been to see DDT since then, so I can’t see myself getting a chance to do so before it becomes completely obsolete. However, I wanted to finish off my run through of the D-Oh, so here are my thoughts on Masato Tanaka vs Tetsuya Endo. It will be the last match I talk about from 2018, and while it’s a few days late, I would like to thank everyone that read the site in the last year. It was significantly more people than have ever read it before, and that means a lot to me.

DDT D-Oh Grand Prix (15/12/19) Review

DDT undercards are the best. While I’m still not going to review it, this one featured the D-Oh trophy winning the Ironman belt, Cherry taking on Gorgeous Matsuno and a match with Chris Brookes and Antonio Honda on separate sides. If any of that sounds fun to you, give it a watch. Outside of that, the B Block was coming to a close with Tanaka, HARASHIMA and Sasaki still in contention.

DDT D-Oh Grand Prix (5/12/19) Review

I’ve been having a lovely time with the D-Oh so far, and it continued in Itabashi with a show that they aired live on YouTube before it took a while to get to On Demand. It’s another shorter card with just four tournament matches, but there are a couple of tasty combos in there, so let’s see what went down.

WrestleMania Weekend: Blackcraft Wrestling No Apologies (6/4/19) Review

It’s time for my final WrestleMania Weekend review because, well, I’ve got to stop somewhere. However, I’ve decided to go out on a high. Blackcraft Pro’s show has been widely derided as the worst of the weekend, and I’ve been drinking for a few hours, so I can’t resist that temptation. It happened in the early hours of Saturday morning, so I am very intrigued to see if this is as awful as I’ve heard, or if the reviews were the result of tired bodies.

WrestleMania Weekend: WrestleCon SuperShow (4/4/19) Review

As it is WrestleMania Weekend and I’m drunk, I’m bashing these reviews out and not really editing them (yes, I usually edit). If an incoherent ramble doesn’t interest you, don’t bother reading them.

The WrestleCon Supershow is a WrestleMania tradition at this point and, despite having both PAC and a load of Dragon Gate talent pull out this year, you can almost guarantee it will deliver.
