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”

Soaking up The Macho Madness

To describe Randy Savage as a ‘just’ wrestler would be doing him an injustice. He was more than ‘just’ a wrestler. He was larger than life, he was more than an athlete, he was simply… The Macho Man.

Before the show, the video screen was plugging the news about Impact airing on Challenge TV, with times and channel info – a really smart thing to have done, the amount of people around me that didn’t know, it got the message across to everybody.

Jeremy Borash opens the show, promising the fans a night they’ll never forget, and introduces the first match: Continue reading “TNA Glasgow results”

Retro: Tommy’s Hardcore Church

Terry Funk, which art in barbed wire… hardcore be thy name. Thy promotion come, Thy will be done in Flaming Tables as it is in Barbed Wire Rings. Give us this day a Singapore Cane. Forgive us our piledrivers as we destroy those who powerbombed against us.

Been a while since I posted something here… I have something written ready, but I need to wait for it to be published elsewhere first. In the meantime, this is a little retro piece, back from the SmashWrestling.com days… to this day, it remains without a doubt, my favourite ever column, and the one I received the most feedback on. Enjoy!
