Pride – We Love It When A Plan Comes Together Preview

pan

Pride will welcome the first band of post independence war criminals to its venue in Bridgeton on Saturday, as the infidels filter in to hide from the protectors of the realm and probably watch some wrestling tae I suppose. That’s what we are now eh? War criminals. The marginalised minority, but what’s that got to do with wrestling I hear you ask? Well….fuck all really. I thought it would act as a catchy topical hook, before we explain how brilliant PRIDE will be on Saturday, and how you should all go there and enjoy it with yer eyes, ears and any other senses you fancy engaging with. Did it work? Did it draw ye in? The nation was divided by all that referendum patter, but do you know what unites us all? Wrestling. Well…it unites all the wrestling fans anyway, and pop culture references always make for top class wrestling show names, so of course, calling it “We Love It When A Plan Comes Together” was a smart move. Now the conspiracists are asking “was the plan a ‘no’ vote all along?” but they need tae shut the fuck up and think about….

Fierce Females – Strewth Shiela Review

10556869_556916177764358_4741742990924686390_o

Fierce Females are gaining some traction and quite right too. With a roster brimming with homegrown talent, there’s no reason for it not to prosper. The problem with all womens shows has always been getting folk to look past the guff mainstream companies serve up and have the audacity tae call “wrestling”. It gives womens wrestling a stigma it disnae deserve, and trivialises all the proper womens wrestlers out there bursting their arses to put on proper performances. So fuck that Total Divas shite, fuck it right in the eye. Get yer narra’ erse to Walkabout and see some real lassie hardcases do it properly. Nae barbies slapping each other about and botching simple shit, just pure, unadulterated wrestling. Strewth Sheila had plenty of that, and even though its nearly a week later, I’m gonnae attempt to cobble together some thoughts about that. Continue reading

An Interview With Stevie Boy Xavier

The bold Stevie Boy. If he’s not one of your favourite cunts, you’re watching wrestling wrong. Fun to watch, and more importantly his stuff makes sense. Every time. Singles, tag, jumping aff balconies, Canadian Destroyer-ing cunts intae next week. Its always top notch. He’s very good at what he does, and for me doesn’t get the recognition he deserves. When Davey Boy went down injured just before ICW had a run of 7 shows in 8 weeks coming up, he was faced with a challenge. Fight or flight. And yer man came out the corner swinging. Holding on to the tag belts proved a wee bit too tricky, but Stevie Boy certainly showed his mettle teaming with Kay Lee Ray and even dabbling in singles action in a belter of a match against Chris Renfrew during that run. Proving beyond any doubt that he can fuckin go. So I fired a few daft questions at the bold yin, and he fired some answers right back at me. Fairly self explanatory I suppose eh, that’s kinda what an interview is, but aye………read it, love it and be more Stevie.

BT Gunn – The Rebirth Of An Oddity

BT Gunn was once the top dog in Scottish Wrestling. Before my time following it, he was the guy. Every single top company in the country bar BCW saw fit to put their title on him because they knew his adaptability combined with that air of unpredictability he carries would lead to top quality main events. Its a simple formula really. In companies where storylines aren’t all that important as you’re moving from town to town all the time, its all about match quality, and no one compares to BT Gunn when it comes to that. Not just the quality of the matches in a wrestling sense, but the way his work draws ye in. There isn’t a type of wrestling he can’t do Continue reading
