G1 Climax Results And Review For July 23

Day 3 of the G1 Climax and if this were anything like March Madness I’d be tossing my brackets into the trash as my predictions haven’t exactly been stellar.  But it’s still early so time to rebound.  Let’s see what we got going on today from the Machida Municipal Gymnasium in Tokyo. BLOCK A:  Hiroyoshi Tenzan 2 vs. Tama Tonga 0 BLOCK A: Naomichi Marufuji 2 vs. Bad Luck Fale 0 BLOCK A: Tomohiro Ishii 0 vs. Hirooki Goto 2 BLOCK A: Kazuchika Okada 0 vs. Sanada 2 BLOCK A:…

G1 Climax Results And Review For July 22

Alright well after a fun first day filled with upsets and some good wrestling who’s ready for like 18 more days?  By the way, when I said Marafuji had a 0% chance of winning, I was watching a lot of WWE and the thought of an outsider coming in and beating the top guy just seemed insane to me.  Sometimes the sports entertainment mentality seeps into my brain, so let’s pretend I never said that, OK? Today’s show is Block B at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo and here are the…

Evolve 65 LIVE Results and Review

Evolve 64 was another solid show that featured the shocking return of Chuck Taylor. He and Drew Galloway shockingly became the new tag team champions after defeating Catch Point, and “Dustin” declared Chuck Taylor dead. In addition, Timothy Thatcher retained his Evolve championship. TJ Perkins, coming out of a night off, will challenge Thatcher. Drew Galloway and Johnny Gargano will end their rivalry (although I have a feeling Dustin and Ethan Page might become involved). We’ll see more cruiserweight showcases and an open try-out for Catch Point. Tommaso Ciampa vs….

Evolve 64 iPPV Results and Review

Evolve has been one of the more consistent companies in the world, and this summer has taken on all new importance thanks to a budding relationship with WWE. The Cruiserweight Classic has opened up doors for many of the wrestlers on this card. Tonight, Timothy Thatcher tries to get a win back over Marty Scurll  as he continues his revenge tour. Roderick Strong is once again uncontracted so maybe we’ll get motivated Roddy again as he takes on Matt Riddle. The night before his epic match with Johnny Gargano, Drew…

ROH 06/24/16 Best in the World 2016 PPV Results

ROH Best in the World 2016 Live Coverage After a long and grueling Global Wars Tour, Ring of Honor looks to right the ship tonight and kick start a focus on their own roster and product. The company’s partnership with New Japan Pro Wrestling has stymied the development of some of ROH’s current stars and with the loss of two other stars on the horizon, tonight will need to be a show that develops stars like Dalton Castle. Tonight’s year in the making championship rematch between the Jays, Lethal and…

EVOLVE 63 iPPV Review 6/11/2016

  EVOLVE 63 Trevin Adams confirmed that Thatcher versus Hot Sauce would be for the title, Nese was added to the Cruiserweight Classic and the WWN Live Experience would be in the same building. MATCH 1: Cedric Alexander vs. Fred Yehi Trevin and Mister Saint Laurent did commentary for this show. I thought they did a pretty good job and MSL offered up some interesting points during various matches, particularly the five way later on. Technical match early, which escalated as it went on. Yehi probably just about edged the…

EVOLVE 62 iPPV Review 6/10/16

EVOLVE 62 MATCH 1: Fred Yehi vs. Anthony Nese Nese impressed in his last match against Matt Riddle and here, it wasn’t quite the same performance, but this still built into a good match. They got a surprising amount of time which meant both guys slowing the pace down during the first part of the match. Crowd weren’t really with them early on and Nese’s new zero character probably doesn’t help in that regard. Things picked up towards the end though, with Yehi avoiding a 450 and catching Nese in…

NXT Takeover: Never Compromise The End Live Coverage and Review

A funny thing happened on NXT’s road to becoming the hottest brand in pro wrestling. Somewhere along the way, the television stopped being must watch. Debuts of “the hottest free agents in sports entertainment” covered for the brand no longer building up rivalries and feuds. A women’s division that once boasted the likes of the Four Horsewomen has essentially turned its entire focus to Nia Jax (who needs a ton of work), Asuka (who is developmental for reasons that have nothing to do with her skillset), and Bayley (who I’m…

EVOLVE 61 iPPV Review 5/7/16

EVOLVE 61 MATCH 1: Lio Rush vs. Matt Riddle Riddle came out with Thatcher’s EVOLVE Title. This was a fun way to start the show. While Riddle did out-wrestle Rush for most of the match, Rush was able to keep in it and get quick flashes of offence in to keep things competitive. Rush eventually caught Riddle with his counter Spanish Fly and went for the frog splash, which Riddle turned into a cross armbreaker for the submission. Obviously these two are still rookies but they worked pretty well together….

EVOLVE 60 iPPV Review 5/6/16

EVOLVE 60 MATCH 1: Lio Rush vs. Caleb Konley Rush had the home field advantage with this show being in Maryland. He spoke briefly before the match to further get that across. Lively opener, which the crowd were really into. Lots of brawling around the ring to start. The ring apron is noticeably taller in this venue, basically up to Rush’s armpits. I imagine that’s a pain in the ass if you’re wrestling a match where you have to get back in the ring a lot. That bit shouldn’t take…
