This past Wednesday night on AEW Dynamite, the highly anticipated ‘Blood & Guys’ match took place between The Inner Circle & The Pinnacle. WWE management reportedly hated the match, with one source claiming “That just set the business back 30 years”. The AEW Blood & Guts stipulation is what is more commonly recognised as ‘War Games’ across the professional wrestling industry, and AEW had their first attempt at the stipulation this past week. The company originally planned for the event to happen in early 2020, with the Inner Circle set to take on The Elite. However due to the pandemic…

AEW finally had their blood and guts match last night on live dynamite May 6th 2021 and in my opinion was better than any NXT WarGames match. NXT had their first WarGames match on November 18th 2017 and every year since it has become a yearly tradition for the brand and I think they have changed people expectations of the WarGames match for the worst. NXT unlike past WarGames matches decide to have no roof on the structure which I think harms the purpose of the match to have no escape and I feel the reason for the structure…

On Night Two of NJPW’s Wrestling Dontaku show, Will Ospreay retained his IWGP World Heavyweight Championship, against rival Shingo Takagi, in an instant classic which has been universally praised across social media this morning. The two previously met in the Best Of Super Jr Final back in 2019 in an encounter which to many people was the best NJPW match of the entire year, however some fans are already claiming this mornings battle surpassed that! More recently the two met in the G1 Climax last year, which saw Shingo take the victory, as well as in the NJ Cup earlier…
