“Sometimes the wrong choices bring us to the right places” Unknown Last Saturday at NJPW’s Battle in the Valley, the wrestling world saw the shocking return of Jack Perry. As we all know, the last time we saw Jack Perry was at AEW’s All In London, which should have been the biggest achievement in the company’s history was once again marred in backstage drama and controversy.

Toxic Attraction. A group that seemingly ran the NXT women’s division for over a year. A trio that had Wade Barrett infatuated. Mandy, Jacy, and Gigi had all the gold they could get on lock. And while Mandy was already established, Gigi and Jacy showed real potential to be big stars in the future. Now that it’s been almost a year since Jacy and Gigi split away from the tag division, it’s good to look back on who has been the standout of the tag team between the two. And honestly, it definitely hasn’t been Gigi. How They Were Viewed…

“That which does not kill us makes us stronger.” Friedrich Nietzsche I don’t believe there is a better quote that can describe the almost 22-year journey of TNA Wrestling than this quote. I’ve been watching wrestling for almost 26 years and have read and watched documentaries on the history of this business, and I can confidently say that there has never been a promotion that has been pronounced dead or dying more than TNA. My Thoughts On The TNA History: This is a promotion that has had more turnover both in front of the camera and behind the scenes that…

With WrestleMania season starting, I thought that it was only right to look back on a WrestleMania of the past. Nicknamed “The Ultimate Thrill Ride”, WrestleMania 33 as an event has gone quite under the radar with wrestling fans. This is most likely due to it being in the middle of two below-average WrestleMania’s, in 32 and 34. Or maybe it’s because of the five-hour runtime. Nonetheless, I’m writing this article to bring awareness to how fun the ride of WrestleMania 33 was and how people should really consider it the good WrestleMania that it is.

From the emergence of freelancer talents, to the appearances of new overseas stars and deeper development of younger competitors, 2023 was definitely a year to remember for all Stardom fans. Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic was over and the entire scene of Japanese Puroresu and Joshi Puroresu regained their normal atmosphere, we the fans were constantly looking forward to the expansion of this industry in the coming years. If we look from the last two years to today, the truth is that all the biggest pro wrestling promotions around Japan have continued to offer more high-level matches and iconic moments,…

Midway through 2023, we heard NJPW star Kazuchika Okada express his desire for wrestling to have a football-esc transfer window. If you don’t know what this means, it’s suggesting that for three months of the year, wrestling companies are able to bid for other signed wrestlers. While in practicality this would never work, in theory this is interesting. So I have eight different promotions, and who I think would be their number one priority. I have taken some liberties here and there, but I have mostly aimed to choose a wrestler who would benefit their company most, looking at the…

With TNA recently announcing its second ever women’s Ultimate X match, it made me ponder who the participants could possibly be. With this revamp bringing in a ton of new eyes to the product, it will be a good idea to showcase a lot of the names in the knockouts division while also potentially showcasing newly signed ones (*wink wink*). Also, before I get into the article, I do want to qualify that I’m assuming it’ll be a five-way, as a lot of Ultimate X’s are around that number.

Disclaimer: This is being written in good fun with sarcasm, satire and Christmas easter eggs spread throughout this piece. This is all being written for a laugh. I’m NOT saying CM Punk hates Christmas. As children we have all either had the Dr. Seuss book read to us or have seen at least one of the movie adaptations of this classic story. As children we have the perception that the Grinch hates Christmas and in fact the original cartoon says as much. However, as you get older and get out in the world you kind of realize that the Grinch probably didn’t…

With Moose cashing in his feast or fired shot against Alex Shelley for Hard To Kill, I am one of the firm believers that this event should end in a title change. The dawn of the new era of TNA sure is exciting, and Moose winning would personally be my way of capping it off. This article is based around my reasons why Moose is the ideal guy to hold that TNA World Championship leading into the new era.

Despite the promotion flying under the radar since the days of British Strong Style, Walter and Ilja Dragunov, Progress Wrestling is once again proving itself as the most underrated promotion in the professional wrestling industry. Why do we love professional wrestling? I think it’s a question that not only non wrestling fans ask us, but also at times we ask ourselves. What is it about this form of entertainment that draws us in so much? What gives us that ‘feeling’? The ‘feeling’ you simply can’t describe. It’s something that I often wonder, and the answer I usually come to is…
