Poster for GCW Tournament of Survival VII FITE

Welcome back to the Sermon on the Mat, your weekly one-stop shop for news from the wider world of wrestling beyond the big cable TV monoliths that get all the coverage.

Coming soon...

EVE God Save the Wrestle Queens (June 3, 8:30 pm GMT)

  1. Clementine vs. the Ava
  2. Jetta vs. Nina Samuels
  3. Emersyn Jayne vs. Kasey

Pro Wrestling: EVE are back with their trademark slate of wrestling excitement and while only three matches are in the mailer I’m writing this off of they’ve all got some pretty hype stakes. #1 ranked Jayne defends her spot on top of the mountain against #3 Kasey in match delayed due to the latter’s injury, Samuels gets a non-title rubber match against Jetta, and Clemetine seeks a win against #14 ranked the Ava!

Check it out live on EVE’s website, folks.

BLP are back with a bang and look at this double header, folks?

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.
