Traditional Championship Wrestling Report – December 14, 2013

Traditional Championship Wrestling Report – December 14, 2013 Greg Anthony vs. Shane Williams We start with Greg Anthony vs. Shane Williams in progress. The action for this bout is a much slower kind than we’ve gotten over the past few weeks, but this was because of its roots in brawling. Nevertheless, these two put on a very good performance here, one that should not be overlooked. Winner: Shane Williams – Pin-fall Sigmon attacked Jason Jones in a quick angle to add some heat to his upcoming bout with Vordell Walker.Read More

The Two Sheds DVD Review: PBW Breaking Limits 8

It’s time to step into the realm of British professional wrestling as we head north of the border for another look at Scotland’s Premier British Wrestling. This time around we’re heading back to last May and the Greenock Town Hall for Breaking Limits 8. The show began with tag team action, with Charles Boddington’s boys T.J. Rage and Jack Jester taking on Sean Maxer and Andy Wild. I quite enjoyed this one. It was a nice little opener which began with a popularity contest as both teams tried to garnerRead More

Championship Wrestling from Hollywood (3:00 am edition) 12/11/13 Welcome back to another edition CWFH! This week, we have the Mikey O’Shea/Othello bout for our main event! Ricky Mandel & Shelly Martinez vs. Todd Chandler – Handicap Match This was a fun, fresh bout, due to the involvement of Shelly. It’s good to see a woman get her chance to wrestle with a man, if only for a brief moment. While only lasting for a brief moment, this was a fine way to start this broadcast. Winner: Ricky Mandel & ShellyRead More

The Two Sheds DVD Review: ROH Honor vs Evil

Ring of Honor is on the agenda again as we go back in time to last February as S.C.U.M. take on three of ROH’s finest on the DVD release of Honor vs. Evil. Singles action was the order of the day for the majority of the card, beginning with Q.T. Marshall taking on Jay Briscoe. This was the first of the veterans versus up and comers matches. It was the usual short and sweet opener began with Marshall endearing himself to the locals, but when Briscoe arrived on the sceneRead More

Numerous media outlets are running a story on Joe Cantrell, an Arizona-based retired professional wrestler, being banned for life from Walmart. Cantrell, who wrestled for eight years and retired due to injury, often sifts through circulars to find the biggest discounts before heading to the big-box store. According to Walmart.com, they match the lowest advertised price on identical products, but when Cantrell tried doing so last week at a Walmart in San Tan Valley, Arizona, he was placed in handcuffs. After a store employee told him it wasn’t allowed, heRead More

Championship Wrestling from Hollywood (3:00 am edition) 12/4/13 Welcome back to another week of CWFH action! Let’s just jump right in. The revolution cut an anti-American promo to start out the evening. This was the standard stuff you’ve been seeing for decades, but it was nicely performed. Scorpio Sky and Christian Cole came out to brag about Sky, when Jon Ian, whose name I’ve improperly spelled as John for a while now, announced that his assistant Danielle will name Sky’s challenger for his Heritage Heavyweight Championship later on tonight, justRead More

Ring of Honor Report – December 1, 2013

Welcome to my first official review of ROH on PWMania! It’s good to be able to put another spotlight on this promotion and I hope you enjoy ROH as much as I do. Well, let’s end the waiting game and get down to it. Roderick Strong vs. Davey Richards What a way to start of my reviews for ROH, by having a great opener from these two. With smart, crisp holds, smooth transitions and plenty of heart-stopping action (mine stopped long enough to make my left side numb); this wasRead More

Welcome back to another week of action with TCW! Without further ado, let’s get going! Americos vs. Kincaid w/ Boyd Bradford – Junior Heavyweight Championship Match This was a very good bout with a surplus of quality action. From technical to aerial, these two worked very hard to make a match that’s really worth your time. Winner: Kincaid – Pin-fall Vordell Walker vs. Sigmon This was another excellent bout that was largely mat based, which was the most effective part of the action here. This match ended with a double-finish,Read More

Championship Wrestling from Hollywood (3:00 am edition) 11/27/13 Moshpit Mike vs. Manimal This was a decent match that was helped by the surprising agility of Manimal, who is quite the large fellow. Mike is a solid talent who looks more like a WCW jobber, rather than a star in the making, but in wrestling, you can never tell who will rise to the top of a given company. There was a lot less psychology than I usually hope for, but everything they did worked well, nonetheless. Manimal ran to theRead More
