Papa Awards – My Favorite People, Events, and Promotions of 2016

Wrestling has always been a cyclical affair with me. It has its seasons and patterns that roll through the year with an oddly comforting regularity. We are all accustomed to the watershed events that dot the calendar and many of us look forward with glee to the season that is upon us now. It is pro wrestling awards season!

Filsinger Games Update (December 2016): CZW and SHIMMER

Filsinger Games’ Fall releases included the fourth installments of their CZW and SHIMMER series. Although company specific, both sets featured some of the biggest names in all of independent wrestling, making them valuable sets for all players and collectors.

Compared to the past shows we were going to, I was unsure about this show, not because I though any of the guys were bad at all, just that in the past week we’d seen New Japan guys and Ring of Honor guys, plus at the front and centre of the poster was The Honky Tonk Man, who let’s be honest, wasn’t that great in his prime, let alone now he was north of 60 and going grey. However there were some talented guys from both Preston City and CZW,…
