I'm so excited for this. Riptide always had really cool videos, but I've never seen a full show.

This, plus New Japan is back? WRESTLING IS PRETTY GOOD

It's been my BritWres happy place post-PROGRESS. The stories are simple, the camerawork is amazing and it's given a platform to folks like Chuck Mambo, Spike Trivet and TK Cooper to be main event players. There's no commentary but they mic up the ring so that you can hear the crowd work like you're in the building.

No, I can still find some via search though I have no way of telling if any that were on there are no longer.

They'd originally had 23 shows going back to August 2017, looks like they now start mid-1018 and they don't have a promotions page.

Annoying as I was midway through watching a 2017 show, but I'm sure they know what they're doing.

Okay, that makes a lot of sense.

It won't leave much of some of their early shows. Take Riptide Returns:

quote:

Singles Match
Jack Sexsmith vs. Spike Trivet
Singles Match
Dahlia Black vs. Candyfloss
Six Man Tag Team Match
Colt Cabana & The World's Cutest Tag Team (Candice LeRae & Joey Ryan) vs. British Strong Style (Pete Dunne, Trent Seven & Tyler Bate)
Singles Match
Chuck Mambo vs. TK Cooper
Four Way Match
Eddie Dennis & Martina vs. Gideon Grey vs. Kurtis Chapman
Singles Match
Marty Scurll vs. Jimmy Havoc

The Candyfloss/Black match, the Mambo/Cooper match, and the Martina drinking match are all you could save.

It would be great if IWTV had a New Japan type system where each match was its own video because it would make this sort of pruning much easier

It would, and would have the advantage of letting people create, for example, a Chris Dickinson match playlist. Or all IWTV title matches. Or every Bear Country match from Beyond. It's the sort of thing that would be simple to do moving forward and tough to do retrospectively.

Simple technically, my guess is it would be a nightmare to whatever royalty structure they've got going with the rights holders.

Turned it on a little bit ago, didn't realize they were starting so early. Setting looks pretty cool. Zayne vs. Lloyd was fun, some hiccups, but I assume that was partly due to ring rust perhaps.

He tweets a lot about throwing dudes so Iím gonna guess quarantine training was finding random dudes and tossing them.

Tre's probably the most impressive guy trained at the AIW school, I really hope he breaks out into more widespread recognition soon. Lee's been around AIW a bunch recently too and has wrestled Alex Shelley a bunch of times there, Shelley's really high on both of them.

Main event seemed rushed and understandable, but man I feel for that woman that, for all I know, wanted no part of the Nick Gage moshpit and ended up with a hospital visit at best.

Fans at ringside should probably shelf mobbing Gage even after Corona, completely avoidable
