Tier 1 Wrestling “Meteoric” Review

Last time I did a review of Tier 1 Wrestling, “March to Victory” was another ascension up the ladder for Tier 1 Wrestling as it was a pretty damn solid event and easily the best Tier 1 show up to this point. Tonight promises to be just as good and with a thankfully less extraneous run time. However, with big names like Big Damo (joke intended) and Homicide on the card, though there is less run time, I expect just as much great wrestling action.   Milk Chocolate originally comes…

Revolution Pro Wrestling Summer Sizzler 2016 Review

Taped from London, England RPW British Tag Team Championship: Charlie Garrett & Joel Redman (Champions) vs. Jody Fleisch & Jonny Storm vs. The British Young Bloods (Bruce & Jake McCluskey) vs. The Legion Of Lords (Gideon Grey & Rishi Ghosh) Garrett and Redman just won the titles over Samuels and Castle, so this is likely a title defense to help get their title reign over. I for sure can’t stand two of these teams (Legion of Lords and Fleisch/Storm) and am indifferent to the other two teams. Gideon Grey cuts…

ROH 7/23/16 TV Review

ROH 7/23/16 TV Review This week’s show was from the television tapings after the Best in the World PPV. The show started with kevin Kelly telling us that the full hour of the show would be dedicated to a title match between ROH World Heavyweight champion Jay Lethal and Kyle O’Reilly. The foresight is a little lacking though. If the match does not go the hour, what will they do with the rest of the time? Kyle made his way out to ringside, but before Lethal’s music hits, Adam Cole…

ROH “Aftershock: Baltimore” Review

ROH “Aftershock: Baltimore” Review July 8, 2016 Baltimore, MD The show starts off with Kevin Kelly and Matt Taven on commentary. Leon St. Giovanni and Shaheem Ali vs. War Machine Rowe started off against Ali who used his quickness and speed to avoid Rowe’s strikes, gaining the upperhand when he called his partner in for some double team action. The two continued to work heel, isolating Rowe and working well together, which was a bit of a surprise as this seemed like it would be a quick squash match. Rowe…

RPW Live at the Cockpit 8 Review

Taped from the London Cockpit in Marylebone Dan Magee vs. Rob Lias This is Magee’s main show debut, and it is mentioned this is a contender’s match. I’ve never seen either man, and the all black set-up won’t help me distinguish them. I get why it’s done, but there’s other ways to be generic rookie young boy. Give these two credit. While I certainly would not consider this a great match, they kept things basic and executed everything cleanly. I don’t feel like they went too far or wnt above…

Shine 36 Review

Shine 36 Review Venue: The Orpheum in Ybor City, Flordia Date: 7/22/16 Commentators: Lenny Leonard and Rob Naylor Welcome to the PW Ponderings review of Shine 36. After some shaky events in their recent past, Shine is looking to build off of their success at Shine 35. Unfortunately, Shine did not have the star power that they had at their last event with standouts like Viper, Eevie, and Kay Lee Ray back in their native countries.  This event is a good test to see if they can put on a…

Beyond Wrestling “Ripped Off in the Prime of Life” Review

The issue between Matthew Riddle and Chuck O’Neil has evolved over the past few months. O’Neil jumped into Riddle’s match with Tommaso Ciampa when Riddle refused to relinquish an armbar when Ciampa got to the ropes, leading to a bad call for the referee who decided the match was a No Contest. Riddle and O’Neil had a singles match at Beyond’s crossover event with House of Glory in New York. In that match, O’Neil gave Riddle a taste of his own medicine by not releasing his armbar when Riddle got…

PWG All Star Weekend 12 Nights 1 and 2 Reviews

We haven’t had PWG reviews go up in quite some time, and I need to catch up on a bunch of these shows anyway, so let’s get some quick and dirty reviews completed. Taped from Reseda, California Commentators: Excalibur, Joey Ryan, and Chuck Taylor Chuck Taylor vs. Mark Andrews The tone of this match was set even before the bell rang as Taylor did a springboard flip. When you consider how much CHIKARA work Taylor has done, it makes sense that he would be a great base for Andrews’s various…
