Has Fight Club Pro officially given up on VOD? I understand it not being a necessary expense for them or even a huge source of revenue, but as a non-UK based fan it is disheartening.

Well, at least I still have ATTACK's vimeo archives.

All The Best went up on their Vimeo page a few days ago, and they acknowledged the delay on Twitter. Not sure what happened there, but glad they haven't canned VOD.

G-Man finished editing that show surely after it happened, but it took Fight Club: PRO another few weeks to upload it. I think it may have been them trying to get legal advice on featuring the WWE UK guys (which ATTACK fell foul of recently with matches including Pete Dunne and Mark Andrews).

Within a few days of saturday's show Chris Brookes had already uploaded a clip to twitter which had been edited and tagged with the logo, so it looks like the show will be knocked out right quick.

That Mikey Whiplash vs Jimmy Havoc match at Fight Club: Pro Rise Against was ...very unique. Holy shit.

I really liked the Nixon vs Chris Brookes match, and the main event was an absolute car crash, though a very enjoyable one.

I struggle to come up with a stronger connection between wrestler and a particular audience than Banks and FCP audience. Sheer magic.

I think it's because he feels like 'ours'. It used to be the same with Trent Seven.

I'm gonna watch Rise Against this week. I won't be watching First Female, as I don't watch shows back if I was at them. I'll just live wondering if the announcer calling me Brian Blessed made tape.

I saw you when Nixon was suplexed onto the jellybeans. Shameful displays of padjery.

Nixon just wrestled Candice - at IPW:UK on April 30th, she gets the other half of the World's Cutest Tag Team...

Finished First Female of Fight Club Pro. Both this and Rise Against were good top to bottom, with great variety. I was a bit skeptical on whether I'd like Session Moth Martina since descriptions of her gimmick made it sound iffy but I pretty much loved her from the get-go. The comedy match at First Female was pretty bonkers.

Ospreay/Haskins vs Moustache Mountain was one of those tag matches I liked a lot, but I wasn't in the mood for its style on the particular night I sat down to watch it. Plus Ospreay's banter wore thin pretty quick, and I had to remind myself of all the reasons I like him a lot.

But god that main event. Perfect encapsulation of how you can throw every twist into a match but if the story and the character's journey have you hooked, all that extra nonsense just makes it more awesome. It was a rollercoaster ride. Loved it.

I know it's not the cheapest storyline to invest in the days of ~10 dollar subscription services but I still feel like I more than got my money's worth with every chapter of this Travis Banks storyline. I would highly recommend it, in case my twelve thousand posts about it haven't already made that clear.

Should WWE rent or buy the black cab and red phone box now?

Right about now I imagine at least half of the WWEUK contracted guys have it tattooed onto their arm, like a weird Britwres Dark Mark that summons them to Orlando whenever William Regal touches his.

Shame they didn't put Tyler against Lorcan on 205.
