briscoe-brothers
They’re a pair of good old fashioned redneck boys who like nothing more than kicking ass and winning titles, and that’s something they’ve been doing in Ring of Honor for over a decade now. Now ROH have paid tribute to “dem boys” once more with another DVD compilation in the form of The Briscoe Brothers: Sandy Fork Originals. And as is the custom with these things we’re starting right at the beginning with…. Disc One March 2nd, 2008 Our boys have travelled into Pro Wrestling NOAH territory as they challengeRead More

Progress Wrestling is on the agenda once more as we take a look at Chapter Nine of their ongoing saga, with Doug Williams challenging Rampage Brown for the title in the main event of Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kick Me, Kill Me. Disc one began with Tommy End taking on Dave Mastiff. This was a pretty impressive opener, especially when you consider that Dutch star End came in as a very, very late replacement for the injured Jimmy Havoc. It began with a nice exchange of hold before Mastiff showedRead More

Well, that’s what I’m hoping to find out by watching WWE’s Royal Rumble, shown live in the early hours of this past Monday morning on Sky Box Office here in Britain. The broadcast began with Daniel Bryan taking on his arch nemesis Bray Wyatt. This was a tremendous way to start the show, and it may also be the bestRead More
