Pro Wrestling EVE – WrestleQueendom 4

Wrestle Queendom – Wrestle Inn

Howdy!

It’s been a crazy few weeks and I’ve been incredibly lucky as a fan. I got to go see NWA Empowerrr in St. Louis and visit my folks, then the very next weekend myself and my wife took a drive to Chicago to see All Out. Awesome trips, awesome shows; on the way back from Chicago, we stopped at a diner in Dekalb called the French Toast Pancake House that was straight out of an episode of Supernatural. 

But what else could bring me back to reviewing than the battling ladies of Pro Wrestling EVE? While I was on the road, we got our first show in 18 months – WrestleQueendom 4, baby! It was the Joshi Boyz of the BoD and the first WrestleQueendom that brought me to this promotion, and I am ready for them to return!

So without further ado…..let’s watch some wrestling, shall we?

Stardom Tokyo Dream Cinderella – June 12th, 2021

We Are Stardom on Twitter: "Stardom will have a new logo for 2021!… "

Howdy!

Yeah, been a minute. I missed writing about wrestling, what can I say?

About a week ago, a match started making waves amongst the proudest of wrestling nerds, and it wasn’t just from the BoD Joshi crew.

The 2021 New Japan Cup – Ospreay, A Post: Part 2

Howdy!

I don’t really know how to begin this, so let’s go with the following – the first bit of this is a recap of the rest of the New Japan Cup, with my thoughts on the matches, etc.

The second, longer bit is about Will Ospreay, the show-closing angle of the Final, and another trip into my headspace. For some of you, it may behoove you to stop reading after the first bit.

Let’s do this thing.

The 2021 New Japan Cup – Round 1 Roundup!

Howdy!

The New Japan Cup is in full swing, ladies and gentlemen!

Due to everything going on in my life right now, I haven’t been able to recap every show, so I decided it would be better to do them all in one article. We’ll run down the results so far, talk a bit about the brackets, and do some match reviews along the way. Cool? 

Let’s watch some wrestling, shall we?

NJPW Castle Attack – Night 1 & Night 2 – February 27th & 28th, 2021

Howdy!

Been a minute.

I want to take a brief moment here and do two things. First, a very belated thank you for everyone who voted me 3rd in the Doomies. Actually means more than a bit that people seem to enjoy what I do, and it helps me keep doing it. I’ll catch Tommy someday, damnit.

Second, for those unaware (and I won’t bore anyone with the details yet again) my family, specifically my wife, has gone through quite a bit of tragedy over the last several weeks, hence my hiatus for a bit there. I genuinely appreciate everyone who reached out or listened, because I needed it. Despite the bickering and silliness, there’s really no other place on the ‘net that I would rather discuss wrestling than right here with all of you. It’s a good place, everyone, and y’all make it that way. 

With all that said, we’ve got a lot to get through, so let’s watch some wrestling, shall we?

The Road to New Beginning 2021 Round Up!

Howdy!

With the New Beginning show looming this weekend in Nagoya, I thought it would be fun to take a brief look at some matches from the Road to the New Beginning events. 

A brief explanation – the ‘road to’ shows are a series of shows that, 99% of the time, are various tag matches of different sizes and lengths, and are meant to highlight the feuds that will eventually be paid off on the main shows. As a result, a lot of the permutations of the matches are run several times, which makes reviewing the shows a little redundant. But there was some really fun stuff on these shows, so let’s watch some wrestling, shall we?
