PWA Black Label are back in Sydney, Australia ahead of next week’s co-promotional show with Fale Dojo that will feature Jushin Liger’s last Australian appearance before his impending retirement, but don’t think they’re skimping on the action! The Prefects get a chance to prove that nobody kicks out of the schoolboy by taking the tag titles, and Shazza McKenzie gets a world title shot!

Get your tickets here or check it out live on OVO, folks.

  3. Kyle Fletcher vs. MAO
  4. Dan Moloney vs. Hikuleo

  6. Michael Oku vs. Shota Umino

RevPro are back in Southampton, England, and it’s kind of a low-key card ahead of the next York Hall show, but it’s a good one all the same! Moonlight Express in singles matches, Portugal’s Perfect Athlete, AND the OJMO taking it to young lion Shota Umino on excursion? Good times!

Get your tickets here or check it out when it hits RPW On Demand, folks.

Free matches here!

The Ring That Tied the Room Together

Something a little different in the free matches this week, friends, because OTT have released a documentary about their final events at the Tivoli Theatre in Dublin, Ireland, and I thought that would make an excellent change of pace. Enjoy!

Creatures of the Deep vs. Nerder Death Kill

Dear friends, if any among you DON’T want to see Nick Gage fight some crustaceans, well... I don’t know how to help you. Don’t miss it!

Invasion RCH

And last but not least, a full lucha libre show from the folks at +LuchaTV. Los Ingobernables (admittedly, with Bestia del Ring, not the best version) vs. Lucha Brothers?! Hell yeah!


KBB Betrayal (Nov. 30)

  1. Silver Potato over 13
  2. Hell Monkey over American Beetle
  3. Powa Ranjuru over Scab
  4. Sun Buster over Gomiman
  5. Burger Bear & Dusto Bunny over Dirty Birds (Tadd Bradley & Tucor)
  6. Unicorn Party over Double Unicorn Dark (c) to win the Kaiju Grand Championship

Oh hey, look at that, yours truly went to another show, folks! And it was Kaiju Big Battel! This one was special because my girlfriend brought KBB up the first time we met, completely unprompted, and I like to think that it was at that exact moment that I went from “I’d like to be friends with this girl” to “I need her in my life and I never want to let go,” so when I saw they were headed to Croydon, Pennsylvania this past weekend I had to make sure we went.

And it was a rollicking good time! Kaiju always delivers a fun, high-energy show but this one, with a major title change and triumph for Unicorn Party in the main event, felt a little special even notwithstanding personal circumstances. Plus I got to tell Tucor, more or less to his face, that he’s an abomination before god, so that was fun.

(Do note, however, that results for this one are... a little sketchy. I enjoyed a bit of Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company’s, er... on-site hospitality and prioritized enjoying the night over taking results. But Cagematch’s results seemed off vs. what I remembered, so I went with my memory-- when you see something like American Beetle losing after being hypnotized by Double Unicorn Dark, you remember it!)

As always...

Remember folks, no matter what type of wrestling you like, no matter how down you feel about the state of WWE, Impact, ROH, or any other “big-time” pro wrestling, there’s something out there for you. There’s a pro wrestling product that can hit you in the right spot and make you love wrestling like you thought you’d never be able to love it again. It’s there, I promise. You just gotta reach out and find it, and that, my friends, is what the Sermon on the Mat is all about.
