Well, with no British women’s wrestling promotions running right now, I was twiddling my recapping thumbs for something to do. I had another project I was working on, but it’s had to take a backseat for the time being.
Enter the New Japan Cup and the return of NJPW. Hey, it’s a wrestling blog and someone’s gotta cover it, and I check all the necessary boxes to do so, to wit:
I am certainly able to form coherent sentences! Most of the time.
My monthly NJPW World sub renewed successfully.
No one else wanted to do it.
Now that my bona fides have been established, let’s watch some wrestling, shall we?
When last we left our heroines in EVE, WrestleQueendom III was in the books! The Medusa Complex managed to pick up the tag straps in the main event, while Rhia O’Reilly continued her reign as the EVE champion, with help from newest faction member Skye Smitson. Debut wins were had, returns were made, and JINNY WANTS DA BELT!
Ahem. Let’s get to the Resistance Gallery, shall we?
When last we left our heroines in Pro Wrestling EVE, the WrestleQueendom lineup had come into focus, with challengers for the EVE title and tag titles being finalized. There’s one week and one show left to go before the big event, and it’s this one, so let’s go home before Queendom!
When last we left our heroines in Pro Wrestling EVE, the SHE-1 finished up with Millie McKenzie becoming the new Ace of EVE and laying down a challenge for the tag team titles at WrestleQueendom 3 with partner Charli Evans! So that means that EVE champion Rhia O’Reilly is going to need a challenger for her crown – will we find out who it is tonight?
Yeah, I know. I KNOW. It’s been a crazy few weeks.
When last we left our heroines of EVE, the 2019 SHE-1 tournament was in full swing! With one show left to go before the final, who will win their blocks and go on to win the right to challenge for the title of their choice at WrestleQueendom?
Well, assuming you didn’t read the spoilers, smash that read more button and find out from yours truly!
EVE’s SHE-1 tournament is held each year to determine the “Ace of EVE” – the winner will go on to challenge the champion of their choice at WrestleQueendom, EVE’s biggest show of the year. The wrestlers are divided by 4 into 3 Blocks of round robin competition, and the winners of each Block will meet on the final day to crown a winner.
There’s some really good wrestling on these shows, all. It’s SHE-1 time; let’s do this.
Tonight, we’ve going to crown new tag team champs here in the Resistance Gallery, as the mighty ass-kicking ladies of EVE are back! Also, for the first time since her retirement, Kris Wolf is back in the house, so I’m sure that will lead to a lot of tasteful storytelling. Tasty, tasty storytelling. Let’s go!
When last we left our heroines in Pro Wrestling EVE, little miss Roxxy had become the #1 Contender for Rhia O’Reilly’s EVE Championship! While Rhia was confident in her chances, an equalizer showed up in the form of Jayla Dark – like Danny Glover in Lethal Weapon, she’s THIS close to her retirement, but she’s got one last job to do, and that’s make sure that O’Reilly doesn’t survive as the champ for much longer. With all that in mind, it’s a good night for a title match, so let’s return to the Resistance Gallery, shall we?
Fairest of warnings – this is a ‘review’ of the EVE Kris Wolf Retirement show. I want to stress up front that it is just tangentially a review of an actual wrestling show, since there’s very little traditional wrestling on it. Also, I swear a lot in this one to seem edgy and give out goofy match ratings because I really want people to accept me and my originality in prose when in reality I’m completely insecure about those things as it relates to my musings about pro wrestling.
Bottom line – you probably barely know this promotion, this is barely a wrestling show, and I think I’m funnier than I am which will probably make this whole thing tedious and a chore to sit through, but we all like Scott so get him that sweet ad revenue and hit that ‘read more’ button. Besides, you can slam me in the comments for the moments of your life that I’m sadly stripping away from you by pseudo-promising something that I probably won’t deliver on.
Starting on Saturday (but really starting up in full one week later in Japan), the G-1 Climax begins. And whether you watch it or not, hanging out on websites like these means that even if you’re not interested, you’re going to hear about it at some point.
