Tier-1 Wrestling “One Year Later” Review

Nothing lasts forever in pro wrestling. Be it angles, gimmicks, hot streaks of business, or even wrestlers or promotions, wrestling is a very fleeting business where it’s a matter or swim or sink. In my 8 years of being a wrestling fan, I’ve seen wrestlers come and go, promotions rise and fall, and business go from good to bad. With that said, I find it an achievement worth of praise if anything in pro wrestling lasts for a year plus. Tier 1 has managed to do that and I’ve been…

Reece’s Rasslin’ Riffs: My Tier 1 Three

I have been reviewing Tier 1 Wrestling and writing for PWP for a long time now. Almost a whole year, in fact. While you can get my general thoughts of the company in my reviews, I want to summarize them for those who haven’t read them: Tier 1 Wrestling, based in New York City, is undeniably flawed but still an enjoyable and fun promotion to watch.

On the positive end, a lot of talent have stepped up to fill in those names that have left. Tier 1 Wrestling so far has been a platform for those talents to stand up and be noticed, and I can really get behind that. “Rise or…

Tier 1 Wrestling “Rumble in the Concrete Jungle” Review

A New Hope was a fine opening show for Tier 1 Wrestling that featured a few really fun matches and several “meh” matches. However, with shining performances from Sonny Kiss, Fallah Bah, Rude Boy Riley, among others, there is a chance that T1W will be able to buff out the rough patches in future shows. With a focus on up-and-coming stars mixed with established talent, the possibilities are big for the new promotion. Where T1W goes is entirely reliant on how much momentum they build in these first few shows….
