1) Beyond Wrestling: Heavy Lies The Crown

Sunday December 31, 2017

Worchester, Massachusettes

This was the last event of the year 2017 from Beyond Wrestling and it also includes the first match of 2018. With an Americanrana type lineup, Beyond Wrestling planned to end the new year with a bang, and they did just that. The event includes a TLC match, a first time encounter between Keith Lee and Josh Briggs, a fans bring the weapons match, and many more. In my opinion, this was Beyond Wrestling’s second best show of the year 2017 (right behind Americanrana ’17). You can find my review of the show HERE.
