Beyond Wrestling “Insatiable” Review

In addition to Providence, RI, Beyond added Worcester, MA to their regular touring rotation in September 2015. In November, Beyond ventured to the Electric Haze venue in Worcester, MA to see how they would do in another new market. “Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams and John Silver first met at a Beyond Secret Show in the Summer of 2014. Over two years later, the two competitors are almost completely different wrestlers and would meet once again in the opening contest of this event. The story was simple but really effective; Hot…

Beyond Wrestling “Tournament For Today” Review

The Tournament for Tomorrow has been a Beyond Wrestling staple since 2011, and has served as a platform to elevate members of the roster to the next level. JT Dunn, Team Tremendous, Brian Fury, and Da Hit Squad all benefitted from winning the tournament and became cornerstones for Beyond as victors. With arguably its strongest roster ever, Beyond (and it’s sister promotion Women’s Wrestling Revolution) held the first ever Tournament for Today, with the slight change in the name representing the immense quality of talent the company currently boasts. This…

Beyond Wrestling “Midas Touch” Review

After a semi-controversial loss against Matt Riddle last month, Chris Dickinson went after another member of Catch Point, “Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams. The finish of the Riddle match was controversial thanks to a distraction from Chuck O’Neil, who was on commentary for this contest. Williams first went for Dickinson’s legs. That didn’t have the desired effect, since Dickinson could still use his arms, so Williams then went for his arm. Dickinson again made a comeback. Williams took back over when he turned Dickinson’s super Falcon Arrow attempt into a DDT….

Beyond Wrestling “Battle of Who Could Care Less” Review

After a successful “Americanrana” in Fete Music, Beyond returned to the Aurora in Providence a month later for the “Battle of Who Could Care Less”, furthering some animosity forstered during “Americanrana”, and some renewed rivalries from the last time Beyond was in Aurora. David Starr was set to face Chris Hero, but an injury put Hero on the shelf for the weekend. Eddie Edwards took Hero’s place and did not dissapoint. Some impressive mat wrestling quickly turned into a heated fight, with slaps and chops thrown at one another. Edwards’…

Beyond Wrestling “Greatest Rivals Round Robin 2” Review

In September 2015, to celebrate Biff Busick’s Beyond Wrestling career, the company held the Greatest Rivals Round Robin tournament, where Busick and three of his top career rivals would compete in six matches, with the victor being the one with the best record. Busick came out 3-0 against Drew Gulak, Timothy Thatcher, and Eddie Edwards, in what some say is the best Beyond show in history. The 2016 iteration of this tournament was a bit different. Instead of pitting four rivals against one another, Team Pazuzu members Chris Dickinson, Jaka,…

Beyond Wrestling “Americanrana 2016” Review

Beyond Wrestling’s biggest show of the year, Americanrana, was so big that the company returned to Fete Music for the occasion. They returned with a loaded card one year in the making, one that has serious potential on paper. What better way to start a big show than with a battle of big men? Keith Lee, who has been stealing shows the past few months, faced Brian Cage in a bonafide HOSS battle. This is pretty much everything one would want from a match like this: big guys doing big…

Beyond Wrestling “Flesh” Review

Depsite being the most interactive independent professional wrestling product today, Beyond Wrestling had never traversed the platform of iPPV…until now. Beyond Wrestling served up “Flesh” on the afternoon of EVOLVE 65 in Melrose, MA, and for the first time ever presented a live show via iPPV on the WWN Live channel. Instead of their usual 10 match offerings, Beyond held a six match showcase with five matches being served up exclusively on their BeyonDemand service. The show opened with Jonathan Gresham and Zack Sabre, Jr. competing in their second match…

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…

Beyond Wrestling “GIGANTIC” Review

If you’ve listened to me on podcasts or follow me on Twitter, you’re aware of how much I love “hosses” in wrestling. Of course when it comes to a Hoss, size matters, but it certainly isn’t everything. There’s a finesse, a style, a type of “smash mouth” aggression that comes with carrying the title of being a Hoss. You could only imagine my excitement when Beyond Wrestling announced a show called “GIGANTIC”, in which they would showcase some of the most noteworthy hosses in wrestling today. Ironically, the show would…

Beyond Wrestling “C5” Review

Due to a neck injury suffered by Brandon Watts (the C5 vertebrae to be exact, hence the show name) last month, Beyond Wrestling held a matinee show as a fundraiser to alleviate the costs of the medical bills repairing the injury would bring. The match between Dave Cole & Anthony Stone and Da Hoodz scheduled for “By Popular Demand” three months prior never took place, as Da Hoodz attacked Cole and Stone with baseball bats and left them in no condition to fight. With animosity building up between the two…
