Retro Interview: Brittany Wonder

Well, hello. Here’s a rarity, a new blog post!

I thought I would throw up some of my older written work that I was really proud of; mainly so it doesn’t get lost in the dark and cobweb filled corridors of The Internet, but also just to get it out there on my own blog. This might be the first, or only, instance of this – but I present to you an interview I did with California indie wrestler, Brittany Wonder. Continue reading “Retro Interview: Brittany Wonder”

Why Brian Kendrick is the breakout star of the CWC

“The 37-year-old Brian Kendrick knows the 38-year-old Brian Kendrick might not get another chance. It could be a rebirth.”

If you’re a wrestling geek – and being honest here, we all are – you’ll have been watching the Cruiserweight Classic on the WWE Network. Amongst the high-flyers, strong style fighters, technical wizards and everything in between, one man stood out for me. As much as I’m a huge fan of Zack Sabre Jr. and Kota Ibushi, I was pulling for THE Brian Kendrick. Continue reading “Why Brian Kendrick is the breakout star of the CWC”

Paying the Piper

There is a fine line between madman and genius – Roddy walked the line his entire life, and may even have crossed over a few times.

Rowdy Roddy Piper was many things to many people. To a kid growing up in Scotland, watching all these body builder types strut their stuff in WWF rings in the 80s, he was pretty much The Man.

Remembering the Warrior

He was, and will forever be, The Ultimate Warrior.

When I was at school, one of the few happy memories I have from that time is talking wrestling. At that time, you were one of two things – A Hulkamaniac or a Warrior. Me? I was a Warrior. Continue reading “Remembering the Warrior”

WrestleMania 29

So that was WrestleMania for this year. To paraphrase the star of the straight to DVD epic and pre game show match winner, The Miz… really? REALLY?

TNA: Maximum Impact Tour 2013, Glasgow

TNA Maximum Impact Tour
Braehead Arena, Glasgow, Scotland
23rd January 2013

First things first – I was at the TNA show in Glasgow last year, and this year’s while good, fell short. A lot of empty seats – the entire top level was empty, when it was jam packed for last year’s (and indeed the last WWE show year a few weeks ago) and a ton of empty seats on the floor. Plus, a cut down roster – the amount of kids I saw that were disappointed that Hogan, Robbie E and Robbie T, Samoa Joe, Joseph Park and of course Jeff Hardy weren’t there was amazing. Doesn’t bode well for next year when TNA moves their annual show to the new Glasgow Hydro that can theoretically have twice the capacity. Continue reading “TNA: Maximum Impact Tour 2013, Glasgow”
