Which fed booked Steen and Gargano for April?

And is HxC going to be a hardcore "only" fed, or a deathmatch one?

Have to say I'm looking forward to seeing Steen and hopefully a meet and greet, but not too keen on the rest. Mostly for nostalgia but I feel like Golddust is a ridiculous choice.

Flag Sabbath, I can't bring myself to enjoy Power Slam anymore. I know the negativity is good, but it seems like there's so much. I read it to learn about wrestling and some reviews are like what you read on these forums. It's much like NME magazine, where they give too much negative attention on the bad and take up space that could be used for better things. I do enjoy reading probably half of it, and I suppose I put up with the other half due to nostalgia as I've read the magazine for so many years, but it's not like I rush to buy it anymore. Do you know of any other UK mags or Newsletters other than PS and FSM mate??

Nah, I'm very much a part-time smark nowadays. I come on here, watch puro on dailymotion, buy PWG dvds, go to PCW shows, read Power Slam, and that's more than enough for me.

I've read PS since it's early '90s incarnation as SOW, but I've never bothered with FSM. I used to read all kinds of newsletters during the '90s, but there's just no need now.

waitaminute, every other time you are a casual fan then? a smark isn't someone who doesnt watch WWE or TNA its a descriptive of a passionate wrestling fan who is now smart to the inner workings of the business

^ all of your posts seem to be starting some sort of argument or trying to stir up something, why do you do that?

Anyway,

I've read PS since the mid-90s, well actually about 1997 I think it was, and used to enjoy it a lot. I do think now a lot of magazines are pointless when everything is so readily accessible online.

its called calling people out on their bull***t, nothing exists in a vacumn so without an explanation statements get de-weaponised, cleaning up the world one guy at a time

I'm a mark because I spend money on wrestling. I'm a smark because I know how the business works, but still enjoy following & supporting it. I'm definitely part-time because I watch way less wrestling than I used to & way less than a lot of folks on here evidently do. The fact that I have little or no interest in mainstream US promotions plays no part in those definitions - that's just personal taste, which every smark, however passionate, possesses.

no that makes you a paying customer and a consumer, nothing more
but still enjoy following & supporting it. .
and all other smarks don't?

i take it that makes you a not as enthused wrestling fan as before

i never said it did

oh course they do, some smarks support wwe no matter what or tna or roh and so forth

At this point I have no idea what your arguments are or point is, so let's just leave it at that & get back to the British wrestling content

Fight Club: Pro runs shows at The Planet nightclub in Wolverhampton. Next show is February 8th. I've never been to one, but have heard good things - violent matches, rowdy audience.

cheers for the reply mate but not really into the hardcore, gore and tacks stuff.

I started watchin wrestling years ago on Sat dinnertime during the 1980's, think thats why I like the type workers like Flair, Mr Perfect, Eddie etc

Had a look round tinterweb but could find anything in Notts, Leic or Derby area. Is there anything?

cheers

My local is GBP - great bear promotions. Located in Sandbach in Cheshire. I honestly love it, we had Zack Sabre Jr vs Jonathan Gresham last Saturday and it was an epic match. If anyone who's in the Cheshire area fancies seeing a good show, I'd definitely go and see these guys in Sandbach. Very kid friendly, but still very enjoyable. A question for some of you, does any of you know where I could go to see hardcore wrestling? Cheers.

Can't vouch for this lot yet 'cos their first show is still two months away - looks interesting though: http://www.hxcwrestling.com/

It means turning up & doing the bare minimum - a performance so lackluster the wrestler in question might as well have stayed home.

I honestly love it when somebody tries to sound smart by using big words that have no context within with what they're saying. Genuinely laughed out loud!

thekitty, you willing to travel? Maybe worth getting a few mates and make a weekend of it somewhere, what I'm planning soon!
