Cards on the table, I honestly can’t remember the last time I watched Dynamite. Week three? The last AEW show I saw was probably the PPV, but I have kept an eye on what they’ve been up to, and people seem to be enjoying it. While that doesn’t mean Western TV wrestling has stopped being the Devil, I figured I’d tune in for Revolution and give them the chance to convince me otherwise.

AEW Full Gear (9/11/19) Review

The main event was a truly brutal and grueling affair

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.

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.

The winds are a changing, as Final Battle 2018 will go down as the end of an era in ROH. The Bullet Club/Elite are moving on and potentially taking a shitload of fans with them. It’s time for those in charge of Ring Of Honor to step-up and find the next big thing. Otherwise, next year’s Final Battle might be a very different affair

All In Review

It’s here. What started as a throwaway comment from Dave Meltzer (dick) on Twitter, somehow ended up being one of the biggest indie shows of all time. 10,000 people, all making their way to Chicago because they trust Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks. 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.
