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…

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…

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. It’s independent wrestling at it’s most condensed and textbook. Despite having only 4 shows and having a lot of growing pains with odd finishes…

Tier 1 Wrestling “March to Victory” Review

After their first three shows in 2015, Tier 1 Wrestling is showing promise as a new force in independent pro wrestling. Thanks to partnerships with various New York promotions like Warriors of Wrestling and the World Wrestling Network, T1W has been able to be a platform for great young talent to show off their stuff, with performers like Darius Carter, Rude Boy Riley, Sonny Kiss, and VSK, just to name a few. After a pretty great “Rise or Die Trying”, T1W is attempting to continue that momentum with their first…

Ringbelles Roundup (2/17/16) –A look at the Cali scene, Yoshiko is back, Rogue: Women Warriors, Marvelous USA, Ray’s tumor, WSU’s 9th anniversary & more

A couple of weeks ago, ROGUE: Women Warriors’ show was canceled due to the entire East Coast being swallowed up by the snowstorm. Multiple shows were prevented from running that weekend and rescheduled with new dates announced, Rogue being one of the few that was pushed back until the next month. The inaugural show was set to introduce Atomic Championship Wrestling’s newly launched women’s division to the Reading, Pennsylvania crowd and had a stacked lineup, with matches like Annie Social and LuFisto locking up. Quebec’s Angie Skye, Pink Flash Kira…

Tier 1 Wrestling “Rise or Die Trying” Review

  2015 for me will forever be a year of rebuilding for the independent wrestling scene in the US. On the bad side, companies like 2CW sadly closed and a lot of the big names in the scene have been swallowed up by NXT. 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….

Tier 1 Wrestling “A New Hope” Review

One of the first things I am asked by a non wrestling fan is when it comes to “when to start watching a promotion”. Do I tell them to begin at the very beginning and watch the storylines branch out and evolve, or do I tell them to just jump in currently and embrace the madness? Well today, that is a bit of both. I am usually excited at the prospect of a new promotion being formed and the different match and angle possibilities that come with it. Tier 1…
