  • Lost Game: My Gaming Experience So Far

    Although I really did not intend to get into it, I got a bit hooked with this Korean MMORPG/ARPG called Lost Ark, which came out in the US sometime in February. A few friends pushed me towards it along with watching a streamer or two and as a result I became curious. Right now, I’ve […]

  • AEW Battle of the Belts 1/8/2021

    This show was a three match show that was supposed to harken back to the days of the Clash of Champions from WCW/NWA. It only lasted one hour and felt more like a house show than something where I would consider it a parallel in quality with the old Clash of Champions. None of the […]

  • AEW Dynamite 1/5/2021 Review

    Recently, my output for reviews for AEW have been slowing down. Part of that is because I’m trying to finish this novel I’m writing and I’ve overshot my self-imposed deadline of both November and December. But the other part is that I have been finding their recent shows draining and I simply repeat myself week-after-week […]

  • AEW Dynamite 12/22/2021 Review

    This week from the Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina, AEW Dynamite made its debut as a special pre-Christmas show. During the week, they had David Crockett show up on one of the YouTube hype shows to talk about wrestling history in North Carolina, which shows a nice connection to AEW as they try to bring […]

  • AEW Dynamite 12/15/2021 Winter is Coming Review

    From the Curtis Cullwell Center in Texas, AEW Dynamite’s special Winter is Coming event was something else but mostly for the first match on the card. That match was the highly anticipated Hangman Adam Page vs Bryan Danielson for the AEW World Title. There were three other matches on the card, two of which had […]

  • AEW Rampage 12/3/2021 Review

    Continuing at the Duluth’s Gas South Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, Rampage was pretty much a two match show. I’ll get into the middle match briefly because it was brief but this show for me wasn’t bad, although the main event did get altered.

  • AEW Dynamite 12/1/2021 Review

    Coming from the Gas South Arena in Duluth, GA, this was going to be a kind of homecoming for Cody Rhodes. But given his reactions in recent months, one would wonder if his return really would be considered a homecoming or an awakening? Also, Jim Ross was out as a result of his chemo treatment […]

  • AEW Dynamite 11/24/2021 Review

    Coming from the Wintrust Arena in Chicago, IL, Dynamite was in CM Punk’s hometown the night before Thanksgiving Day. Generally, in my experience the vast majority of pro-wrestling shows done before a major holiday end up becoming a parody of itself just due to the inevitable involvement of some angle to pull in the holiday […]

  • AEW Full Gear 11/13/2021 Review

    Coming back to the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN, this was one of the first shows where the surprises in terms of guest appearances were kept to a minimum so that AEW’s talent could be on full display. It was a four hour show with 10 matches, including a freebie to open the show on […]

  • AEW Rampage 11/12/2021 Review

    This was the go-home show before tomorrow Full Gear PPV coming from the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN, which will also feature Full Gear. It’s pretty much a double hitter as a live event but was unusual in that it had four matches rather than the normal three. Despite being the go home show, I […]
