WWF King of the Ring 2001

You don't know how strong glass can be until you watch King of the Ring 2001. Concussions, broken necks, broken backs, broken tailbones, and broken hands aside.....this was an amazing show. And yes, all of those injuries ACTUALLY occurred on this one sho...

AEW All Out 2020 Review

A very noteworthy show in the history of AEW…good and bad. We got to see great tag team wrestling, a horrific table spot, and that no one in AEW knows what mimosas look like. Great wrestling, but unfortunately hindered by the lack of energy from the sele...

PROGRESS Wrestling: Chapters 5-6

Time to....PROGRESS in these chapters! (How many times can I make that joke?). This edition of PROGRESS covers Chapters 5 and 6; two chapters filled with violence, absurdity, and some good-natured tag team wrestling. Oh, and Ricochet challenges for the P...

WCW Spring Stampede 1994

Listen to a guy who has NEVER watched WCW start his journey with Spring Stampede 1994. Did you guys know that Stone Cold wrestled Great Muta? I do now. And it was hilariously disappointing. This show had so many car crash moments and is such an interesti...

Ring of Honor: Round Robin Challenge 2002

The second ever show for ROH. Dragon. Daniels. Ki. Three awesome matches to see who the best in Ring of Honor is. Although there is no title yet, the journey is absolutely entertaining. That entertainment manifests through some great matches and some god...

Grinding My Gears: Match Psychology

Do you hate it when 8 guys (who are all fighting each other) hug together on the floor, just so someone else can jump on top of them? Me too. That's the type of stuff we get into in this episode. High flyers, powerhouses, heels, babyfaces....every type o...

WWF Wrestlemania X

Overall, not a strong show, but an incredibly interesting time capsule to open. Bret and Owen had arguably one of the greatest matches of all-time, the first ever ladder match occurs, and Fink has hair. Through the good and the bad (and boy, there A LOT ...

NXT Takeover: In Your House 2020 Review

Ring of Honor: An Era of Honor Begins

Let's revisit ROH's first ever show....the journey begins. The year of 2002 was a strange time, both in wrestling and in the world in general; and that is very much exemplified here by ROH's inaugural event: An Era Of Honor Begins. Eddie Guerrero vs. Sup...
