Ladies! Gentlemen! Transgendered!
Welcome to the Episodic Wrestling Show Thread. These days, a great many Wrestling Promotions with regional TV shows post their episodes on the internet.
They use Youtube, Vimeo, other video sharing services, or even their own website to do this. Some promotions make shows specifically for the internet to promote their brand or next live event.
That means everyone in the ENTIRE WORLD can watch these shows legally and for free. And I think that's awesome.
This thread has two goals:
The first is to create a comprehensive listing of every "Other" promotion that has such a show. If you know about any, and you don't see that show on this list? Let me know, post a link.
This original post will be updated as often as possible.
This list will hopefully allow people to find more quality wrestling. If you’re a wrestling junkie like me, you know we can never get enough.
The second idea is award excellence in the wrestling arts. And that’s what the Wrestling Emmys are for.
The Wrestling Emmys
At the beginning of every month I’ll be awarding excellence or at the very least decency in the “Other” wrestling arts.
Every promotion that has an episodic TV or Internet show can qualify. Except World Wrestling Entertainment or Total Non-Stop Action.
Fuck those guys, they get enough attention.
I hope you’ll join me in handing out your own Emmys, in various categories that you see fit to.
Myself? I’ll be handing out Emmys for SHOW OF THE MONTH, MATCH OF THE MONTH, BEST SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT MOMENT, and BEST OUTFIT. (What is wrestling if not one big fashion show?)
Why do this? Because it gives you the chance to highlight the best shows of the month. The ones that you would recommend to your buddies. The ones that you think deserve more attention.
And hopefully you’ll bring some joy into somebody’s life by turning them on to a good wrestling show.
The Big Three
Besides giving your fellow posters the heads up on promotions that we don't know about and handing out your own awards, there is another way to participate in this thread.
You can also alter the rankings of these promotions by posting your "Big Three" in this thread or sending them to me via private message.
The idea behind the big three is to list your favorite promotions along with a ten world blurb about why you recommend it.
The more recommendations a promotion has, the more likely it's a quality show that people should check out.
I usually avoid using spoilers when I talk about a wrestling show. However, sometimes you have to talk about it, right? All you have to do to talk about a spoiler in this thread is wrap up the spoiler in a "Spoiler Tag."
If you do that, then nobody will see the spoiler unless they hit the "show" button.
It's really easy to do too. Just type or copy and paste these two commands:
(Type the subject of the spoiler between the two quotes.)
(Note: I only put in the * so you could see the comand. Don’t type in the * when you do yours or it won’t work.)
The end result should look like this:
[spoiler=”WWE”]Sean Michaels betrayed Marty Jannetty by super kicking him through the barber shop window.[*/spoiler]
(remember not to use the *)
Everything you type in between the two sets of [ ] will be hidden, and people who don't want to read the spoilers won't have their shows ruined for them. And you can walk around thinking you're a pretty considerate fella, because you are.
Thanks in advance.

The Big 3's ...
- Booker T’s Reality of Wrestling, great production for an indy. Characters, good wrestling, feuds that are easy to follow, hot women and of course Booker,Sharmell and Stevie Ray.
- NWA SAW. I like that they are using NWA Smoky Mountain and CIW guys now. Kincaid and Chase Owens are great. I wish the TV was more focused like ROW.
- NWA Championship International Wrestling because I think cutting the show by a half hour has helped the product.
- Beyond Wrestling , Great group of wrestlers. Probably the easiest wrestling promotion in the world to follow because of the amount of free content they have. Always fun to watch.
- Legend City Wrestling, Local promotion for me so I'm a little biased. They have a good group of wrestlers and their shows are generally enjoyable.
- Ohio Valley Wrestling, OVW production sucks but I love seeing the talent of tomorrow. I liken it to reserves in Football.
- Westside Xtreme Wrestling, I'll go with Westside Xtreme Wrestling - Good standard of wrasslin' without having to rely on chair shots & light tubes despite having the word extreme in the name.
The Sane Psycho
- Insane Championship Wrestling
- NWA SAW, so southern you should eat fried chicken while watching.
- Resistance Pro, At the moment? Simply the best. Great matches, Characters and Story Lines.
- Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, Really stepped up their game this season. New venue, better product.
- Insane Championship Wreslting, Still, my favorite, even if they're just showing highlights now. Don't watch the show if you're planning to buy the DVD. They spoil everything. Weird business model.
