BBC have Iplayered the Arena documentary on Kendo Nagasaki and Peter Blake from 1992. I think this is referenced a lot in that The Wrestling book.

It's a good watch

It's my last BritWres live show of 2015 today, IPW:UK Christmas Cracker 2015 in Tonbridge. Looks a fun card...

*IPW:UK WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Jimmy Havoc (c) vs. "Santa Claus" (almost certainly a mystery wrestler who'll reveal themselves mid-match)
*IPW:UK ALL-ENGLAND CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Sammy Smooth (c) vs. Joey Ryan
*IPW:UK TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: DND (Cieran Donnelly & Danny Duggan) (c) vs. The GZRS (Sebastian & Tom Irvin)
*IPW:UK WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Addy Starr vs. Tennessee Honey (Special Referee: Jetta)
*2/3 FALLS WORLD OF SPORT STYLE RULES MATCH: Johnny Kidd vs. Zack Sabre Jr. (Special Referee: Steve Grey)
*Scott Star & Tom Dawkins vs. Swords of Essex (Paul Robinson & Will Ospreay)
*D-Generation Mex (Jonathan Windsor & Mexican Eagle) & Sexy Cupid vs. Darrell Allen & The London Riots (James Davis & Rob Lynch)

Ospreay as a heel should be an interesting watch. That Women's Title match is an interesting first match, given they just made that a match, and didn't do a tournament for it.

A bit of history is going to be made on March 20th - Pro Wrestling EVE are returning after three years away from running regular shows (though they do have offer matches as part of XWA), and they'll be running the first ever women's wrestling show in London at Cargo in Shoreditch. Women's wrestling was only made legal in London in 1987, after by-laws were put in place once Mountevans Rules were installed in the 1950s. There's been more than enough women's wrestling matches in London since then, but not a whole show. Rhia O'Reilly (the current EVE Champion) and Nikki Storm are the first two wrestlers announced.

So what's the final take on 5* Wrestling? I'm mostly confused. You run big arenas with big names, dream matches, then you fail to pack them (as can be expected), they're supposedly promotion for a videogame but according to some people at the shows the video game was barely mentioned. I'm sure they had some decent matches, though some were given sadly little time (AJ vs Rey ran just about 10mins I hear?). I wonder if they'll ever be put out on VOD or something. Strange business...

Starting the first night late with a contract signing for the next night's main event is a great example of what happens when you think Monday Night Raw is the entirety of wrestling.

Anyone know when the PCW/ROH shows will be available?

Damn... they need to strike when the iron is hot!

Well at this point they might as well wait until ROH turns hot again around May.

PCW are PCW. They're not aiming at the hardcore wrestling fan, which just makes the ROH affiliation all the stranger.

Hmm.. yeah it really does. Wondering what ROH gets out of this deal too.

Speaking of, i wonder how long before RPW & ROH enters some kind of relationship, since they're already connected through NJPW and the ROH title was defended recently.

Also a three-way show with all three promotions would be great, but maybe i'm just dreaming. But seriously i can't see why it shouldn't be possible.

Dalton Castle, Hanson and Raymond Rowe are returning for separate PCW shows in April. Castle is also doing Tidal Championship Wrestling's April show.

You should all look out for FPW Reloaded 5.0 when it's released on DVD or VOD. Ryan Smile vs. Will Ospreay was another European MOTYC, which went about 20 minutes, and had everyone at the venue on their feet. I'd say about ****1/4.
