I don’t normally write about Sendai Girls, but with their storylines getting ever more intertwined with those of Marvelous, it felt like it was probably time to stop by. Plus, Mio was challenging for the belt, and I’m never going to miss an opportunity to rave about her and Big Hash.Continue reading “Sendai Girls SENJO Chronicle (11/7/21) Review”
A Grow Together review may feel slightly redundant over two weeks after it happened, but it’s only recently aired on Nico, and it’s not often you get to talk about an Aja Kong main event in 2020. Plus, I regularly get people looking at reviews I wrote over a year ago, so I’m sure someone still cares.Continue reading “SEAdLINNNG Grow Together (4/11/20) Review”
Are you ready to Fall in Love with D? Let’s all fall in love with D together. Sorry, couldn’t resist. One should be serious about a show headlined by Sareee vs Yoshiko because we all know that’s gonna be violent. The D is getting stiff (last one, I promise).Continue reading “SEAdLINNNG Fall In Love With D! (29/9/20) Review”
On their fifth anniversary, SEAdLINNNG made the exciting decision to air the show live on YouTube, one that I like to imagine was inspired by Nanae’s recent ChocoTalk where she was stunned to discover people all over the world were tuning in. Whether that’s the case or not, any chance to watch SEAd live on an easily accessible platform is a good thing. Now, let’s see how they did.Continue reading “SEAdLINNNG 5th Anniversary (26/8/20) Review”
The Korakuen returns continue as it’s SEAdLINNNG’s chance to step into that iconic room. Although it’s worth saying that this happened before the other Korakuens I’ve recently written about, it just aired later. Still, that’s not particularly important, and with a big title challenge on top, it promised to be a good show.Continue reading “SEAdLINNNG Close To You (13/7/20) Review”
In light of what’s come out over the last few days, I want to kick this off by saying that I believe victims. I have nothing but respect for those who are brave enough to speak out against abusers in wrestling and will strive to do anything I can to help. In the past, I’ve described wrestling as my safety blanket, the thing that allows me to hide from the world and feel something. That anyone could have that feeling taken away from that at the hands of some sick fuck breaks my heart and makes me furious at the same time. Wrestling can and should be better. If we have to burn it down to make that a reality, then let’s grab the matches.
There is no good way to segue from that into my nonsense, so I’m not even going to try for smoothness.
As wrestling floods back into Japan, SEAdLINNNG is coming back hot, kicking things off right where they left them. Sure, there weren’t any fans there, but ASUKA and Arisa were still going to war, and that sounds like a shitload of fun.Continue reading “SEAdLINNNG Delivered To You! (13/6/20) Review”
Yes, Japanese wrestling has ground to a halt outside of a handful of empty arena shows, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t still things for me to ramble on about! First up is SEAdLINNNG’s show from earlier this month, which took place in a time where crowds were still allowed. Quick reminder, this is only the second SEAdLINNNG review I’ve done, so if I make any mistakes/miss anything out, please let me know.Continue reading “SEAdLINNNG New Leaf! (10/3/20) Review”
Are you ready to get emotional? I feel like I’ve already said goodbye to Kagetsu at least a couple of times, but this is the actual last chance we’ll get to pay our respects to her before she goes on her way. Christ, that makes it sounds like she’s dying. In reality, she’s twenty-seven and is probably off to live an awesome life, but I’ll be sad all the same.Continue reading “Kagetsu Retirement Show ~ Many Face (24/2/20) Review”
DDT is the next promotion I have pencilled down to start watching, so I was intrigued to check out their trip to America and see one of their shows with the benefit of English commentary. However, that also means I am coming into this with exactly zero prior knowledge, please don’t judge me.Continue reading “WrestleMania Weekend: DDT Is Coming To America (4/4/19) Review”
