Blog of DOOM Daily News Update – 12th July 2021

Well football sadly didn’t come home, but credit to the lads who stepped up to take those penalties. I would have crumbled into a quivering wreck if I had needed to take one. Hopefully we can make it to Qatar next year and have a crack at winning that one!

Scheduled on the Blog Today: The Keithster has got some Wrestling Challenge on the docket, whilst Rockstar Gary is continuing with some AWA reviews. Jabroniville also has some more Joshi Spotlight on the books, so keep a look out for that. There’s still time to read Maffew’s most recent UWF Fury Hour review as well. Logan Scisco also has an edition of Wrestling Challenge in the offing as well (Popular show. I’m wondering if we ever actually got that over here in the UK? We definitely got All American Wrestling at one stage in the early 90’s)

Now some news from the folk at Cultaholic

Mike Bennet claims that he was originally in line to play Sister Abigail

Haven’t really watched New Japan in months as I’m more into NOAH these days. I’m sure the show itself had some good wrestling on it. If Ishii ever gets the World Title then I might start watching again.

Scufflin’ Hillbillies are okay though.

Eddie Kingston wants to wrestle Jun Akiyama

I’m on board, but only if he wears his Kawada themed gear and JR keeps the snark to a minimum this time.

Have a great day everyone!
