YES. Letís post cool matches from our local obscure indies! Specifically I want matches from promotions most people wonít even have heard of, hopefully featuring people we wonít know.

Iíll start. Despite there being little of it and the fanbase being so small here in Finland, thereís still some very good pro wrestling to be found here. Hereís a match Iíd like you to watch.

Musta aukko (PyŲveli Petrov, Viktor Tykki & The San w/ Mahtava Perkules) vs Kolme šssšš (Make Smooth, Jami Aalto & Shemeikka), Elimination match @ FCF Wrestling Show Live! Omega 2018, 5/26/2018

https://youtu.be/eJUu1KMpvcU

This match was a part of a very long, multi-year story about the heel faction Musta aukko taking over FCF, eventually even turning FCF events into Musta aukko-branded shows, NWO style. This was around letís say the middle part of that story. Just a really fantastic match with lots of background and storyline development for everyone involved, some of which Iíll have forgotten so I wonít go into it too much. A very important piece of history however is that Shemeikka (face wrestler with lucha mask) and Tykki (Kevin Owens-shaped bruiser heel) debuted around the same time in late 2016 and were a tag team until Tykki turned on Shemeikka and joined Musta aukko. Also, The San only debuted at the previous show so heís a bit green (dude has made tremendous progress in the last two years, though!).

Also the Terminator stuff isnít (only?) because Kenny Omega made it cool. Shemeikka has a giant Terminator tattoo on his arm!

Workrate-wise it might not the best match in FCF history but I do think itís really drat good, the story beats were hit perfectly and the atmosphere was electric, so I consider it one of the high points in their history.

NOW ITíS YOUR TURN. Post a fun match from your local indy no one here has seen before and I hope I or someone else will watch it and comment on it! Maybe even review a match if you feel like it!

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

My local indie, Rock N Wrestling (no idea why it's called that) don't have owt on film but it's basically just a bunch of guys you'd see in ICW in Glasgow. Jack Jester was champion for an eternity, Wolfgang wrestled up here once, I dunno, BT Gunn, it's all folk you'd mostly recognise from ICW undercards. Apparently Sabu wrestled there in 2017 and I had no idea because they do a pisspoor job of promotion.

Exactly the kind of thing I wanted to see ITT

I was aware of Blackheart but had never seen her in a match. Rose I canít remember hearing of at all. Video package did a very good job of explaining the backstory.

Smartly worked street fight with literally all the trappings and room for some wrestling too. Thought those two told an effective story. Good stuff!

This match was loving awesome live (I'm the tall fat guy in the Macho Man shirt). I haven't been to a bad Journey Pro show (but I have been to a meh) one.

In one of the Best Friends interviews, Trent talks about being a victim of this and I think he had to go to the hospital.

Here's one from my local, Blitzkrieg Pro. VSK is great and deserves a lot more recognition and is part of the CAP guys like MJF, Kris Stat, Bear Country, etc.. and Ethan Page is... well Ethan Page

It's so much worse than the wall, they just throw him out of the ring and into some bench thing. Warning, the video is annoying.

Some background: Officer Cooper used to be in a tag team called the Bad Cops, but his partner died and became a ghost, so he got these other two guys out on work release to be his partners.

I wanted to find the match where the Hellfire Club dissolved Otis the Gimp's dick in a vat of dick-dissolving acid instead but this will have to do

There's not much backstory, just two dudes who inflict pain in different ways.

Kevin KU wrestled Shotzi at my indie, I thought he sucked, but like every other Godamn match I've seen with him and Garrini has been awesome.

It's like goldy or bronzy, but made of iron.




Wrestling Resurgence are a Leicester-based "arthouse" wrestling company. They put on very good shows featuring some of the best up and coming UK talent, especially those willing to go a bit avant garde. They also have a focus on comedy wrestling. These combined in their "artcore" match last year. A hardcore match that started as an art class. Featuring Chris Brooks, Cara Noir, Spike Trivet, Zoe Lucas, and Jayde.

https://youtu.be/dO6jcvVYbKM

They also have a focus on minority wrestlers (their Everything Patterned show from last year was the first British wrestling show with an entirely BME roster).
