If January brings the excitement of a new year and the motivation to keep up with every promotion going, then February is inevitably the month when real life intrudes. Unless you’re young enough to have very few responsibilities (and lucky you if so), the sad reality is that you can’t watch everything. However, fear not, because that brilliant match you missed in the crowd? It might just be on this list, ready for you to discover it.Continue reading “Ramblings About’s Matches of the Month for February 2023”
WrestleMania Weekend: Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport (4/4/19) Review
It’s WrestleMania weekend! A most joyous time of the year and one during which I get drunk and watch lots of wrestling. There are going to be two types of shows happening over the next few days.
- Those I watch seriously and make an effort to write a decent review of. For example NJPW/ROH and Stardom.
- Those I get drunk in front of and produce a rambling page of gibberish written while I watch the show. For example Spring Break and WrestleMania.
Up first is Bloodsport which slots nicely into the second category, so grab a beer and enjoy some worked shoot wrestling… is that right? Who cares! Let’s get on with it.Continue reading “WrestleMania Weekend: Josh Barnett’s Bloodsport (4/4/19) Review”
Ramblings About’s Top Twenty Matches Of 2018
With music and films out of the way, it’s time to finish the year with a list that actually reflects the name of the site, it’s wrassling time. First, though, I have a few disclaimers. This list will be New Japan heavy because I mainly watch New Japan. I’m also limiting myself to one match per a feud and as I have reviewed a lot of these before I’ll be linking to my previous reviews rather than going in depth. I will, however, talk a bit about those I haven’t had a chance to ramble about. Right, let’s do this.Continue reading “Ramblings About’s Top Twenty Matches Of 2018”
PWG BOLA Night Three Review
It’s night three of BOLA where we’re set to not only wrap this tournament up but also treat ourselves with the traditional ten-man clusterfuck and a tag title bout. I won’t waste your time by talking anymore, it’s BOLA, baby!Continue reading “PWG BOLA Night Three Review”
PWG BOLA 2018 Night Two Review
After a grunty chop fueled opening night, BOLA 2018 comes into night two on a high. With Shingo vs Ilja and WALTER vs Thatcher booked, I suspect said chops shall continue. This one has the potential to be something special, let’s see how it goes.Read more
PWG BOLA 2018 Night One Review
It’s BOLA time! Well, BOLA time was a few months ago, but you all know how PWG works. This year’s tournament was hella interesting as WWE’s purging of the indies forced Pro Wrestling Guerrilla to dig a bit deeper than usual. It was a chance for a few new names to make a splash and, in many ways, that’s more exciting than watching established stars do their thing.Continue reading “PWG BOLA 2018 Night One Review”
wXw World Tag Team League (Night 3) Review
Many moons ago I started reviewing World Tag Team League. It should not have been an epic task, yet it became one. However, today, I shall finish my quest with this review of the third and final day. A show in which the tournament itself takes centre stage as we have the last group matches and the final. It’s been one hell of a weekend, so it’s time to find out if wXw stuck the landing.

wXw World Tag Team League 2018 (Night 2) Review
This review is very late, a situation that you can blame on New Japan’s Super Junior Tag League.
wXw were forced to change the main event of World Tag Team League’s second night as an injury to everyone’s least favourite da, Absolute Andy, morphed the triple threat into a straight-up match between Ilja Dragunov and Bobby Gunns. However, rather than removing the title from the equation, they’ve taken a leaf out of MMA’s book and made it for the Interim Title. That’s exciting, isn’t it?

wXw World Tag Team League 2018 (Night 1) Review
World Tag Team League got started with one of the better cards wXw have put together this year. Not only did they serve up the tournament matches, but they backed them up with Toni Storm vs Meiko Satomura, a 4-way dance to determine the number one contender for the Shotgun Title and the latest battle between David Starr and Jurn Simmons as they both put their hair on the line. There’s a lot of fun to be had there.

wXw The Inner Circle 6 Review
In what has become a wXw tradition, World Tag League began with Inner Circle 6. These shows take place at wXw’s Wrestling Academy and always have a hot crowd. It’s the perfect way to start a weekend of wrestling, even if it is no longer said weekend.
