Celebrate Muhammad Ali’s 70th birthday by watching him get kicked in the calves by Antonio Inoki for 30 minutes

January 17, 2012 by


Yeah, it’s the second Antonio Inoki post in under a month and, yeah, we will just run this exact post again when Ali dies in three months’ time, except we’ll update it with a reminder that he was also the special guest referee at WrestleMania I. But fuck it, this is my blog and I’m […]

Randy Savage vs Shane Douglas (WWF Superstars, 13/09/1986)

January 8, 2012 by


If wrestling fans had enough social graces and friends to hold dinner parties, one of the key questions that’d be tabled over dolcelatte and gewürztraminer would be: who won in the end, Shane Douglas or Ric Flair? Sure, Ric Flair still has the job in a nominally national wrestling promotion, but Douglas has a job […]

Shawn O’Mercy vs Lewy Paradise – RWL, 4 December 2011

December 10, 2011 by


Backyard wrestling, like Placebo, is a thing that you assumed died out in the late 90s but actually has a stupidly large underground following today. When the average Monday night undercard match featured nothing more than Reno hitting The Dog over the head with a cookie tray for 93 seconds, backyard wrestling made sense: a […]

Chris Jericho vs Mean Mike Enos – WCW Nitro, 23 September 1996

December 8, 2011 by


This was prompted by me only realising in the last month that WCW curtain-jerker Mike Enos was WWF curtain-jerker Blake Beverly, which just goes to show how good a disguise a scraggly moustache and an air of effeminate condescension can be. The Beverlys weren’t major players in the early 90s tag scene; as a youth […]

November 22, 2011 by


Hi everyone. Sorry my rant on Survivor Series is a little late but I had a lot of college essays to do for college. I am going to say what happened and then say whether it was good and give it a rating. Well, here is my rant. I hope you enjoy it. Johnny Ace […]

So, to […]

Tiger Dalibar Singh vs Terry Rudge (World of Sport, 28/01/1984)

November 20, 2011 by


Some like to dismiss the Football Manager series of games, to which I’ve lost many years of my life, as Super Speadsheet Manager. If Football Manager, with its reliance on changing small variables to cause even smaller changes, is MS Excel, then the Total Extreme Wrestling series of games are MS Access: a lot more […]
