GET BACK UP

"There is nothing wrong with making money" is the rallying cry if every punk who's currently figuring out the price tag on their values.

Southside title vacated as well

tbh the Southside title should probably be quietly retired as the company behind it is no more either.

Weren't RevPro intending to run it as a second brand? I mean that's likely out the window with the 'rona, but still...

I think the plan was to have Starr/Ospreay II to unify the belts at the May show but then the 'rona hit and ended that. They still might see money in a unification match and have a tournament

Worker at a UK production company posted a lengthy essay about how the owner of Breed Pro owes a lot of money that's likely never getting paid back. Only held off on coming forward about it sooner because when he first brought his complaints up to talent, he was told in no uncertain terms he'd risk being blackballed

I was just thinking "man, sure sucks how three of my five wrestling hats are for wrestlers who have been canceled, at least i still have this hat from the tiny promotion I randomly went and saw in Sheffield last year"

starting to get worried about my remaining hat for... naito

I thought the redtext someone dumped on you was in bad taste and a bit much so here's a corgi instead.

Boy have I got some bad news for you. Naito runs out on interviews in restaurants leaving the interviewer to pick up the tab. Reprehensible.

can't remember where the BritWres thread is, so I'm going to post this in here and pretend that it's about a European promotion

RevPro taped a show two weeks ago, and in spite of Andy Quildan making a huge fuss about #SpeakingOut on a 4.5 hour podcast, he nevertheless booked Ospreay for a match https://twitter.com/RevProUK/status...1681937411?s=19

RevPro were never going to jettison their Champion, their biggest star, and a guy who their partners New Japan are extremely high on. Sure, maybe it'd be nice but it's wrestling.

Yeah, like it or not, Ospreay is a shitlord, but not one that did anything criminally actionable, so very few places are going to boycott him.

The Finnish promotion FCF is coming back this Saturday for their first live show in half a year. Whatís nice is that for the first time ever, everyone who bought a ticket will receive a video recording of the show when it ends. I like to think Iím kinda responsible for this because when the show was announced, they didnít mention any corona measures and I posted on the event page asking about that stuff and also the possibility of them streaming the show or putting up for purchase later. After all, I want to support them and see the show even if Iíd decide I wouldnít be going, which is likely because I have little interest in catching the virus and a wrestling crowd is going to shout and chant whichíll make me at the very least uncomfortable to be there right now - not something I want from whatís supposed to be a fun event. The virus situation here is pretty well under control but this is the hotspot in this country and Iím still going to be avoiding events bigger than like a dozen-ish people for a good while.

Itís probably just going to be a hard cam recording but Iím v. cool with paying the ticket price for it.

I'm still 50/50 if I'm going. It's a shame they couldn't find an outdoors venue (and since it's September, the evenings are starting to get a bit chilly for wrestling shows) but I'm assuming they'll be able to keep people socially distanced with so many of the "core fanbase" opting to stay home with no chance for sell out level numbers.

But hey, we'll be (probably/maybe/hopefully) getting commentary with that VOD! But since it's probably a live edit, I'm expecting at least some technical difficulties #teknisetongelmat

So, that FCF show happened and we even got the VOD in a relatively short time! Awesome main event with a fair dose of overbooking. On the whole, the show was good, but felt extremely packed with swerves and storyline progression that felt like catching up for lost time.

Finally watching that VOD and wow I didnít expect them go all out on like this! Shot and edited well and with commentary and everything. Will buy a ticket to the next one too regardless of whether I actually attend the show live if this is the quality we can expect.

Some of the booking seems really quite questionable from what Iíve heard but maybe part of that can be attributed to them trying to make up for lost time.

What a week it's been.
So much to talk about.
And so many things we can't talk about.

does anyone know what happened to Great Bear Promotions? It looks like they had a fine little run for a while with people who are now huge but they suddenly just disappeared?

I remember seeing a match between Chris Brookes and Zack Sabre Jr from 2014 on youtube that I can't track down anymore.

...hopefully they didn't close shop because the owner was a sex pest or something?
