Chikara The World Is Not Enough Review

TWINotEnough300

I know Chikara has enough talent to produce good shows. It is like they are choosing not to now, and it makes it so unbelievably disappointing. This show has two matches that I am excited for at least. I hope the booking does not get in the way. July 20, 2014 Boston, Massachusetts Commentators: Leonard F. Chikarason, Bryce Remsburg, Chuck ... Read More »

Gakiya healed from an orbital bone. Alexander thanks AAW for an easy night and Gakiya slaps him in return. Though it’s very representative of the kind of match ... Read More »

ROH Field of Honor VOD Review

ROH-Field-of-Honor-590x900

Field of Honor presented a unique chance for Ring of Honor. They were quite literally taking TNA’s place at Brooklyn Cyclones’s stadium. Roughly 1500 fans made their way out on what looked to be a beautiful night for ROH wrestling. I have to say. Visually, the stadium looks like a great place to catch a minor league baseball game. As ... Read More »

ROH Summer Heat Night One VOD Review

ROH_Summer_Heat_Tour_18_07_14

One week after Aftershock, ROH started their Summer Heat tour in Cincinnati. This has become a great home for ROH with energetic crowds and a less snarky crowd. Kevin Kelly was nowhere to be found, but Joe Dombrowski stepped in. Honestly, Dombrowski does a much better job conveying the action and providing the stories of the matches. The differences are ...

Chikara The Living Daylights Review

chikaralogo

After three discouraging shows and one downright awful show, I’ve grown anxious about the rest of the Chikara season. I think at this point it’s going to be foolish to expect a “return to form.” Chikara is a new company now with a different feel. However, I still believe they can execute the current vision for the company in a ... Read More »

ROH Aftershock VOD Review

roh071214

After such a major event such as Best in the World, Ring of Honor basically needed to start over with new storylines and a new direction. The most significant change obviously came with a new world champion in Michael Elgin who  has decided to defend the world title on every show. This harkens back to the old days of ROH ...

Chikara Goldfinger Review

goldfinger-detroit-pro-wrestling

The first three Chikara shows of 2014 were all disappointing in various ways, but I have hope they will be able to turn it around. As long as the shows are more like Quantum of Solace  and less like Diamonds Are Forever, they should be able to do it soon.   June 22, 2014 Detroit, Michigan Commentators: Bryce Remsburg, Leonard F. Chikarason, Mike ... Read More »

Chikara 2014 Reviews: You Only Live Twice, Quantum of Solace, & Diamonds Are Forever

live-worldwide

Last June, Chikara said goodbye to wrestling fans after a controversial finish to an iPPV main event. It was a somewhat poetically frustrating end to an eighteen month period that saw Chikara flounder creatively after the artistic achievement that was High Noon 2011. With Chikara’s wrestling promotion on the shelf, the management, personalities, and wrestlers seemed to mostly focus their ... Read More »
