My Top 40 Wrestlers

Inspired by Jim Smallman’s Top 40 Wrestlers of all time on a recent episode of his Tuesday Night Jaw podcast, I decided to work out my own Top 40. So here, without much explanation, is my Top 40. Yes there… Continue Reading →

A bit of a wrestling kick…

It’s no secret that I seem to go through phases of being really into something and then loosing track or drifting away; often through just not having the time to stay up to date with whatever that thing is. Lately… Continue Reading →

The things I do for Fire Pro Wrestling

WWE NXT: The Verdict

So, NXT has arrived. The next step in Sports Entertainment? Here are my views on the show, which I watched before work this morning! I thought NXT was supposed to be a reality show. I almost didn’t watch it because of that. Let’s make things clear now… this is NOT a reality show. What it is… is one of the most entertaining WWE shows I’ve seen in a long time.

That’s Japanese for professional wrestling by the way.
