A university film student with a lifelong passion for professional wrestling. Began watching in 2011 and have more or less remained a consistent fan since then. Expanded my horizons to other promotions in 2019 and would now consider myself a global wrestling fan. Also an actor, dancer and performer so very much enjoy the logistical performance art of wrestling, both from a physical and character perspective. Long live pro wrestling!!

Tonight on AEW Dynamite, Orange Cassidy continues his battle against the Undisputed Kingdom to take on Matt Taven with Texas Death rules. Dax Harwood also battles Jon Moxley, while Matthew and Nicholas Jackson take on Top Flight. Let’s get at it! AMAZING Jon Moxley vs Dax Harwood This was Strong Style of the old school NWA variety, with strikes, chops, suplexes and slaps. An incredibly technically strong and entertaining slugfest as you can expect from these two guys, it further proves that Harwood is just as good solo as he is in a team. I could’ve switched to the third…

Tonight on AEW Dynamite, Hangman Page and Swerve Strickland are in action in Dealers choice matches. Jon Moxley also takes on Jeff Hardy while Chris Jericho continues his feud with the Don Callis Family by taking on Kyle Fletcher. Lets get at it! GREAT Jon Moxley vs Jeff Hardy This was a strong opener and another excellent Hardy match in his 2024 resurgence. They made this match ‘relaxed rules’ which is always slightly confusing given the rules aren’t so much relaxed as ignored completely, particularly when Hardy lobbed a chair at Moxley’s head. Nevertheless what I enjoyed here was both…

Tonight on AEW Collision, FTR and Daniel Garcia conclude their weeks long rivalry with House Of Black inside a steel cage. Elsewhere on the card, Yuji Nagata comes to AEW to take on Bryan Danielson, while Jon Moxley and Claudio Castagnoli battle Shane Taylor Promotions. Let’s get at it! GOOD Jon Moxley and Claudio Castagnoli vs Shane Taylor and Lee Moriarty A safe but entertaining TV opener which began to find its stride in the final few minutes. They were content with playing the hits here to get the crowd invested and for that they succeeded. When Claudio and Moxley…

Tonight on AEW Rampage, a Fatal 4 Way will decide Orange Cassidy’s next opponent as El Hijo Del Vikingo faces Kip Sabian, Komander and The Butcher. Elsewhere on the card, Jon Moxley faces Lee Moriarty and Anna Jay goes up against Ruby Soho. Let’s get at it! GOOD Jon Moxley vs Lee Moriarty- Watch Match Here I enjoyed the story told here of Moxley as the veteran getting occasionally upstaged by the youngster and the action was of course well worked with the talents involved, but in truth I thought this was a little clunky. Slow in parts and needing…

Tonight on AEW Dynamite, Adam Copeland adds another dream match to his resume as he takes on ‘Murder Grandpa’ Minoru Suzuki. Swerve Strickland also takes on Jeff Hardy while Hangman Page battles Penta El Zero Miedo. Elsewhere on the card, Thunder Rosa takes on Red Velvet and we will hear from World Champion Samoa Joe. Lets get at it! AVERAGE Samoa Joe Promo This was an odd promo in that nothing was really said, Joe alluded to the rankings and Hook came out and said he was still coming for Joe, but for an opening segment this was weak, and…

Elsewhere on the card, the Adam Copeland Open Challenge continues, and Daniel Garcia goes one-on-one against Buddy Matthews. Lets get at it! GREAT Jon Moxley vs Shane Taylor An unsurprisingly entertaining slugfest to kick off Collision, this was hard hitting and brutal in all the best ways, with Moxley and Taylor proving their worth as two of the company’s best brawlers. The ending was a…

Tonight on AEW Rampage, Darby Allin takes on Jeff Hardy in a rematch from their wild brawl in 2022. Elsewhere on the card, Chris Jericho takes on Matt Sydal and Kris Statlander battles Queen Aminata GOOD Chris Jericho vs Matt Sydal Longer and stiffer than I expected, this had some good brutality and some pretty entertaining sequences between these two friends, but that cannot exclude the multitude of botches. An awful attempt at a codebreaker, a baseball slide that nearly hyperextended Sydal’s knee, and a drop kick from Jericho that missed Sydal completely. It’s a shame as it could’ve been…
