The new title match for Oberhausen this month is a double title match - Jurn Simmons putting the Unified World Wrestling Title up against Da Mack, who's putting up his Shotgun Title. Guess wXw are taking advantage of Da Mack's higher profile from being on the Cruiserweight Classic.

That'll be finishing with shenanigans then. Can't see either guy dropping his title.

I have seen some people already book tickets for the London show through the wXw site rather than wait till Thursday till PROGRESS start selling them. Anyone on here bought through them? I would love to get my tickets sorted asap as I would love to make a weekend out of it and the PROGRESS show on the Sunday.

I bought through wXw because I saw them advertise them. Very minor differences though.

If you've been thinking about trying "wXw Now" out this is the month to do it. Not only do you get the World Tag Team league, but also their all womens show Femme Fatales and Broken Rulz later this month.

I jumped on wXwnow for this month because I heard such good things about the WTTL. It was a lot of fun to marathon! Glad to see Speedball Mik Bailey as well. I was kind of ready to not like Bad Bones John Klinger based on his look (a laundry list of things I hate aesthetically) but him vs Bailey was a fucking great bout.

5+ years of German studies back in school meant I could sort of follow the German commentary, though it's nice to have the option of English commentary as well, which I watched for the Femmes Fatale show (which was good, mostly due to Jinny being hated everywhere).

I'll try to watch 16 Carat from earlier this year and try to get into some of the storylines the promotion is putting out there. Anybody else thinking of subscribing, don't be a dumbass and like me and google "wxw now signup" because it takes you to a completely wrong page. It took me a while to figure out you gotta log into vimeo, search it there, then go to the site itself.

That is quite a shame. I loved the team of him and Starr. They were supposed to defend their titles against Absolute Andy and Marius Al-Ani on Saturday in a TLC match.

They probably vacated the titles due to Lucha Underground I'm guessing.

That's what I'd think, but him missing Progress due to "travel issues" (he was in Germany at the time) thickens the plot ever so slightly.

Yikes. I hope they keep booking David Starr tho, really like that guy.

I'm struggling to get the best out of my WXWNow subscription. I watched the tag league, 16 Carat from earlier this year and some Shotgun eps. What else is worthwhile? Was the Triangle thing with BJW & CZW from 2013 any good?
