The Rock = $ and success at Wresltemania 32

The Rock = $ and success at Wrestlemania 32



Picture of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson from his own Twitter @therock


The Rock – real name Dwayne Johnson started with $7 dollars in his pocket as a 23 year old struggling to make a name for himself in American Football, Dwayne turned his attention to what his father, Grandfather and so many from his Samoan heritage had been so successful at and decided to try his hand at Pro Wrestling, it was a decision that would change his life forever.


Dwayne debuted as Rocky Malvia in WWE in 1997 and now in 2016, 19 years later The Rock isn’t just the biggest wrestling star of all time but Dwayne Johnson is on his way to becoming the biggest star in Hollywood as well.

The Rock Debuting in WWE in 1997



A recent report from Daily Telegraph UK also Named Dwayne Johnson as one of the best Value Blockbuster actors of 2015.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/film/movie-news/chris-evans-mila-kunis-jennifer-lawrence-best-value-hollywood-stars/


Dwayne Johnson has had an incredible 2015 with Films such as Fast and Furious,San Andreas and more and success on TV as well with his TV Series Ballers being a huge success and winning awards too. Dwayne is carving out a tremendous career for himself, however Dwayne doesn’t let it go to his head.


From @therock Twitter feed

If you see what he posts on social media Dwayne has never forgotten what is important he posts a lot about the importance of family, how important there are and how integral they are too him, he also sends out messages about tolerance in our society and treating everyone with respect, as well as working hard and training hard too to achieve results, Dwayne is very inspirational and I believe takes great pride and importance in being a role model for so many throughout the world.

As a huge wrestling fan and seeing wrestling or Sports Entertainment since the age of 5 years old I will always class The Rock as a Wrestler 1st it was the wrestler that captivated me so much, made me buy his action figures, Tshirts and merchandise.

The Rock debuted when I was 12 years old and through my teenage years The Rock, Undertaker,Steve Austin, Triple H and Mankind were the top of the tree in WWE and I got treated to some tremendous action, amazing rivalries and matches.

The-Rock-vs-Stone-Cold WM 17

The Rock then Left WWE in 2002 to go and film Movies and start establishing a career away from WWE. A lot of people and fans didn’t like The Rock for that but I saw no problem in it. The Rock had achieved everything he wanted to at that time in WWE and he wanted a new challenge and to try and conquer a different world of Movies and entertainment. At the time it was the right decision for him and in hindsight was 100% correct decision to make.

The Rock was away from Wrestling for a number of Years he came back for one off appearances and had a match at Wrestlemania 20 with Mick Foley vs Evolution. Then there was a gap in time and the The Rock next major appearance back for WWE actually came at WWE Hall of Fame at Wrestlemaina 22 when inducting his father Rocky Johnson into WWE Hall of Fame

The Rock and Rocky Johnson
Then in 2011 On the run up to Wrestlemaina 27 It was announced on WWE Raw (WWE flagship weekly show) that they were going to announce a Host of  Wrestlemania. Rumors had been circulating all week and rumours were that Justin Biebler or some other entertainment star was going to host the show.



Then the lights go out electricity sounds are heard throughout the arena then, The Rock Theme hits, the crowd went insane, everyone at home went insane, I never thought id get to see The Rock back in WWE and here he is!! It was an incredible comeback moment one which cannot be duplicated to this day.



Following Wrestlemania 27 The Rock came out the next night on WWE Raw and challenged John Cena for a match at Wrestlemania 28 the challenge was accepted and one of the greatest feuds in Wrestling history began.

Rock vs Cena throughout that year 2011-2012 whether it be promos, their match at Survivor Series, Verbal altercations it was all great.

It was trailblazing too  1st Time it had ever been done a years build to a match at Wrestlemaina. At Wrestlemania 28 The Rock and John Cena were in the main event in front of a sold out crowd in Miami Florida and they saw The Rock beat John Cena in one of the best Wrestlemania main events of all time.




I was hooked I had to go to Wrestlemaina 29. I knew The Rock was going to be there. I had wanted to go to Wrestlemaina since I was a child I had never been able to see The Rock Wrestle live, it was never an opportunity I had. However now being older I wasn’t going to let it slip through my fingers.


Dameon Nelson (left) me (centre) DAvid Herro (left)
So I booked the plane tickets and booked Hotel Hilton on Avenue of Americas in New York and with the great help of Pro Wrestling Report having a Suite at Metlife stadium I paid my money for a ticket and got to watch Wrestlemaina 29 with Dameon Nelson and #Superfriend Milwaukee Wrestling Promotor David Herro.


 I was able to live out my dream see Wrestlemaina in front of 80,000 + and see The Rock vs John Cena 2. The feeling of The Rock Music hitting and seeing him walk out in person there is no other feeling like it, It was incredible I could feel it in my bones it was better than anything I had never imagined.




That is why The Rock at Wrestlemaina 32 makes so much sense. I paid my money because I wanted to see The Rock on the biggest stage possible, If the Rock coming back gives 100,000 people the same feeling that I had in New York then its worth it.


 From a fan satisfaction standpoint getting to see The Rock live is something a lot of fans want to do and experience and is something that you cannot do every week or every month as fans were used too in 1999 it is now a rare opportunity and one I recommend that fans should take with both hands.


From a commercial standpoint its excellent for WWE it helps WWE. The Rock has more Twitter followers, Instgram Followers and Facebook Friends than Combined viewers of WWE programming domestically. The Rock reach throughout Social Media and the world is huge, he can help attract the large audience that WWE needs. The Rock has the ability to attract the casual viewer that may know him only from films and may check out Wrestlemania as they have never seen wrestling before that fans if he sees it and enjoys it may stay with the product.


That is how The Rock helps the rest of the WWE Roster, With More causal fans coming in to see Wrestlemaina 32 means more fans seeing the other members of the WWE Roster too, it’s a chance of the rest of the talent in WWE to sell themselves to those fans that may not tune into WWE every week.


The Rock coming back makes it better for everyone because With The Rock Coming back everyone wins. The roster get to benefit from The Rock Begin back, it helps elevate the WWE to the next level and that then makes the talent challenge themselves on that next level too the experience WWE roster will gain will be invaluable.


There will be more eyes on Wresltemaina with The Rock now a mainstream star more media outlets, everyone from Variety, ESPN, Entertainment tonight to small One man blogs like this one your reading means more attention on the product which means more attention on WWE Roster which again means WWE roster stars will be in even more of the limelight.


All of this will translate into Dollars of WWE, Dollars for Texas and Surrounding area helping build the economy and making it stronger and more resilient.


That is what one man Dwayne The Rock Johnson brings with him to Wrestlemania


What Dwayne brings is going to Benefit everybody

My Pro Wrestling Pride 2015 End of Year Awards

My Pro Wrestling Pride 2015 End of Year Awards





2015 has been a tremendous year for Pro Wrestling Pride. A Year in which it has grown and more and more stars from USA, Japan and Beyond have come to the company to compete in Matches. Stars Such as Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Million Dollar Man, Mr Anderson, Rhyno, Rockstar Spud, Robbie E, Bram,Chris Sabin and many more.

Not only have Pro Wrestling Pride imported many stars but they have been bringing in some tremendous top tier domestic talent with stars such as Tiger Ali, Eddie Ryan, JD Knight, Saime Sahin, Scotty Essex and Welsh stars Big Grizzly and Robbie Caine who both debuted in January 2015 they have a well rounded talent roster and that has translated into some brilliant events and shows.

All credit goes to the organisers/owners of Pro Wrestling Pride, all the staff that work so hard, people on the door, Merchandise Ladies, Cameramen, Referees, Announcers and wrestler and everyone that makes this show brilliant.

As many of you know I have tried to get to as many PWP shows throughout the year as I was able too and I haven't left disappointed yet. If you want to go to a show next year you can see where the next event is and buy tickets at the link below


Now onto the awards these are all done in fun and not meant to be taken too seriously they are all chosen by me and all my opinion so with that said read on and enjoy!! :)

PWP Tag Team Of The Year



Dual Winners

Danny and Mark Walsh (Pretty Marvellous) and Eddie Ryan and Jason Larusso (The Lionhearts)



 Tag Team of the Year Danny Walsh and Mark Walsh Pretty Marvellous and Eddie Ryan and Jason Larusso The Lionhearts. I couldn't separate these two teams  Danny and Mark - Pretty Marvellous  had a tremendous run as tag team champions this year and defended Tag Team Titles against so many different teams this year including former WWE stars.

They became the longest running PWP Tag Champions in History.

Unfortunately for the duo all their success turned into destruction when at Torquay May 2015 against Ryan and Larusso Mark Left Danny on his own in the ring after feeling like he wasn't getting the limelight he deserved. Ryan and Larusso broke the streak and effectively ended Pretty Marvellous in the process. Eddie Ryan and Jason Larusso did what a lot of other teams couldn't do and get ahold of those tag team titles.

Holy S#@t moment of the year


Bram, Big Grizzy and Chris Andrews Taking it to the car Park in Newton Abbott



Unfortunately I wasn't at this show one of the very best main events that PWP have had all year. Bram arrived in England for his first PWP show and he along with Grizzly and Andrews took the fight the Courtaney Centre Car Park! There were Irish whips into Guard Rails, bodies flying into raised garden beds and punches thrown in the car park a truly chaotic scene and one fans could not believe they were seeing! it was an amazing seen and something that has not been seen since! If you want to see it for yourself you can click the link below to see the video.

Catch Division Wrestler of The Year


Ultimo Tiger


Ultimo Tiger has had so many quality Tremendous matches in 2015 he has become Catch Division Champion twice this year and has had amazing matches with Tyler Hawke, Jigsaw, Chris Sabin, Koji Kanemoto, Scotty Essex and more.

Ultimo Tiger has grown so much in 2015 and too see what he can do in the ring and what he has been doing to his opponents is incredible. Tiger athletic ability is off the chart, he is current catch division champion he has to face Kenny omega Coming up and Scotty Essex has also be vying for an opportunity so Tiger is going to have to keep his Witt's about him going into 2016 as there will be a lot of wrestlers looking to take that title from him but Tiger welcomes every challenge and will look to overcome them all!!

Pro Wrestling Pride World Champion of The Year


Big Grizzly


Big Grizzly has had such an impact in pro wrestling pride this year. He came into the promotion on January and has had a stellar year . Big Grizzly whether you like him or not, he has become x2 World Champion and taken on some of the worlds best in Mr Anderson, Rhyno and many more.

Big Grizzly is currently PWP World Heavyweight Champion and with The Anarchy Uprising Group (Mean Tommy Dean, JD Knight) around him Grizzly could be holding onto that title for a long time still, 2016 could be even better for Big Grizzly.

Most Hated Team of the Year


UK Dominator, Robbie Caine and Keizer


You just couldn't find a more hated team in Pro Wrestling Pride this year than these 3! they came together as a Team at Exeter in May 2015 to take on the team of Darren Saviour, Sabu and John Harding. I haven't heard a crowd boo as long, as loud and as constantly as when these 3 came out. They truly are a hated team in pro Wrestling pride and the fans wont let them forget it either!!!

PWP Photo of the Year


Darren Saviour and Robbie Caine


This picture I obtained is from Nige Barrett and Hawkeye Photography he takes amazing photos at the shows and I picked this out from what he had taken this year. 

 I think this photo captures Pro Wrestling Pride so well, High Flying action, tremendous performers and the photo encapsulates the word action so well, to me this is photo of the year.

You can view all of Nigel Photos via his facebook page

PWP newcomer of The Year


Saime Sahin


Saime has had an excellent year in PWP since he arrived he immediately connected with the crowd and they have loved him ever since.

Saime has such a big hear and personality and to add to that he Won 2015 Xmas Rumble an has a world title shot coming his way, Saime really has taken his opportunity this year and ran with it, next year he could tune that opportunity in a championship



PWP Catch Division match of The year


Ultimo Tiger vs Tyler Hawke

The Match below took place in Newton Abbott in February 2015 it was the main event of the show and Iv taken the blog that I did about the show at the time and pasted it in below so you can read what a great match it was. It was such an excellently told story and was really well done.


On a personal level these are two of my favourite performers in Pro wrestling Pride I love the attitude and cockiness and wrestling skill of Tyler Hawke and the high Flying skills and the incredible ability of Ultimo Tiger is something to behold. This match during the course of it got "this is awesome" chants twice! such a brilliant main event with so much wrestling skill on show its going to be hard for me to do this justice by just writing about it, I was so into the match that I did not got every detail of it, I got drawn into it so much and got lost in it.

I loved the the story that they were telling.  This will definitely be a dvd to buy when it comes out and you can see this fantastic match for yourself and see the effort passion and commitment that these two put into this catch division trophy match.

Tyler has C2 with him at ringside and Tiger has Harding and Saviour with him. Tiger manages to get Hawke into an armbar to start things off and Hake is on the back foot however the C2 are circling ringside and Saviour and Harding are keeping them in check eventually both Tiger and Hawke make it on to the apron where Hake starts hitting Tiger on Middle rope in centre of the ring Tiger manages to come back and wraps Hawke arm around the ropes Hawke gets hit to the outside and C2 come round and Tiger and Big Grizzly get into a faceoff in front of me which leads the crowd to chant "Tigers Eat Bears" Saviour and Harding then come round and get into the face of Grizzly.


Hawke Goes for the cover and the referee started counting the fall and then Grizzly pulled the referee out of the ring, which I turned to my friend and said I  think that C2 were going to turn on Hawke! Although that didn't happen in this match, thinking back to my previous blog about Teignmouth show last week where Josh Knott wasn't happy with Grizzly joining them in C2 I wonder if this is another subtle little thing that PWP are doing in the future and gives a reason for things to change or for tension to start within the group and against Hawke maybe with the dynamics of the group changing in the past few weeks it will be interesting to see where the story goes and how this continues PWP have a habit of building on story and using these things as we go forward so this could be very interesting.


Following this Grizzly and Saviour go face to face outside as action continues in the ring Tiger hits a great series of kicks to Hakwe who is on his knees in the ring Tiger is really on a roll now and Tiger goes for a pinfall and gets a 2 count. Hakwe then goes up in the corner however Tiger manages to cut him off and gets ahold of Hawke and puts him in the corner and Hawke feet are resting in the corner and then hits a spinning DDT/Neckbreaker from the turnbuckle for a 2 count.

As the match goes on Hawke gets back in control and takes Tiger up to the top of the far corner from me on his shoulders Hawke goes for a Super rolling fireman's carry slam and Hawke lands the move but lands extremely on his head and that got a "holy shit" shout from me and I thought that match might end at this point but the match continues.

Tiger hits a tiger suplex on Hawke and gets another 2 count and then Tiger manages to hit sliced bread on Hakwe and Tiger gets the win and is your new Catch division champion,



PWP Tag Team Match of The Year


Darren Saviour, Sabu and John Harding vs UK Dominator Keizer and Robbie Caine

Exeter May 2015

This was a tremendous main event from show in May was an incredible match and for me definitely tag team match of the year.

Before I start let me say that again there was so much happening in this match my eyes were darting all over the place! So again will try and get down everything I remember! 

honestly and truthfully out of all the Hardcore/Extreme matches I have seen live in Person this left me at the end of the match with my jaw wide open in disbelief. These men put on and incredible main event UK Dominator, Caine and Keizer  with their natural aggression, intensity and team work which they use all to Great effect. They are the perfect bunch of bad guys! 

Darren Saviour with his great athleticism and charisma and John Harding with his guts, resilience and his ability to take whatever came his way tonight was incredible!!! Along with ECW Legend Sabu this was a great combination of people in a match. 

Keizer, Robbie Caine and UK Dominator make their way out and these men are ready to go Dominator has his shirt off and his baseball bat in his hands as Keizer gets on the mic and says that Sabu had a 'little accident' and tonight's match will now be a 2 on 3 extreme rules match. John Harding and Darren Saviour comes out they get into the ring and go out to pose on the ropes but they get attacked from behind while on the turnbuckles and this match is go. UK Dominator throws John Harding outside of the ring and Robbie Caine is in the corner with Darren Saviour then suddenly the lights go out the music hits and the lights come on and it's Sabu!!! Sabu points to the sky in one hand and throws a chair directly to the head of Robbie Caine the chair flys off his head! 



Sabu hits Caine with a chair


John Harding Sabu and Darren Saviour
UK Dominator and Keizer end up on the outside as well and John Harding goes over the ropes to the outside as does Darren Saviour that leaves Sabu in the ring and he rings back in Keizer and Sabu hits a springboard double  leg drop onto him. Sabu gets Keizer into a camel clutch while Robbie Caine is now out in front of me hitting John Harding and while that is going on UK Dominator and Darren Saviour are stood on the turnbuckle and UK dominator suplexs Saviour back into the ring!!! 

Keizer and Darren Saviour are facing each other in the ring and Keizer hits an incredible inverted DDT onto Saviour! 

Then the teams get into their corners and John Harding ends up in the ring and there is a succession of quick tags between all three of UK Dominator, Robbie Caine and Keizer they end up cutting Harding off from his team. Keizer hits Harding with an insane Death Valley Driver into the corner. Robbie Caine hits Sabu own Springboard legdrop from outside to inside of the ring as had been done by Sabu earlier and Robbie walks towards Sabu and puts his middle finger up to him.

Harding ends up getting a chair and had it in front of his face  but as he turns around he gets blasted with the baseball bat by the UK Dominator the sound of the bat of the chair is incredible!! 

Harding is down and things aren't looking good as then UK
dominator, Caine and Keizer take Harding to the corner and lift his legs up while Harding is holding the top Rope Keizer jumps off top turnbuckle and hits a double stomp on the chest of John Harding. 

How John Harding is surviving all this I don't know!

Unfortunately for him there is more to come as the chair lays flat in the ring Domintor and Keizer throw John Harding to the ropes and pick him up and put him on the shoulders of Robbie Caine and Robbie hits and incredible Powerbomb into the chair! 

Darren Saviour hits a double top rope drop kick onto Dominator and caine and Sabu gets back into the ring and is taking it to both men and hits a double DDT onto UK Doninator and Caine! 

UK Dominator is on the outside and John Harding goes to jump through the 2nd Rope but gets smacked one head with a metal tray! John Harding is out and is on the floor in front of me. He has had an insane match.

Meanwhile in the ring Robbie Caine and Sabu are battling and  Sabu has a chair but UK Dominator comes in and Caine and Dominator take control and Caine gets the arms of Sabu and and Caine stands on the apron and has Sabu left arm as UK Dominator goes to hit Sabu with the chair, Sabu moves and it hits Robbie Caine on top of his head! 



UK Dominator about to hit Sabu

Robbie is out in front of me with blood pouring down from the top Of his head and he is looking in a really bad way. meanwhile Sabu has set up a table in the ring and Robbie face gets placed on the table and Sabu goes to the top rope with a chair and hits Arabian Facebuster with Chair hitting Robbie Caine on back of his head and putting him through the table! 

Sabu then gets the pinfall and the win! 


Winners - Sabu, Darren Saviour and John Harding 


There is carnage all around me after this match Robbie Caine blood is everywhere all over the table and he is taken from the ring. John Harding gets himself back into the ring and the crowd chant 'Thank you John' John grabs the mic and thanks all the fans. 


Iv got to say Robbie Caine is one tough Person he really showed his physical toughness and his ability in this match and how the hell he continued i don't know.

In addition i have never seen someone take as much punishment live as John Harding did 
tonight he really gave all of himself to this match and did everything possible to win and the fans showed the appreciation as a result. 

Wow what an incredible main event extreme rules match! All 6 men have to be congratulated on making this the best 2nd Anniversary main event! 

Those ladies and Gentleman are the awards I Hope you enjoyed reading this and let me know your own choices and what you would award this year!!!

My Top 5 Pro Wrestling Pride Matches 2015


As always everyone thank you for reading and taking the time to check this out. As you all know I'm a wrestling fan and not a “wrestling expert” or proclaim to be one just my opinion as a fan on what Is see Thanks and Enjoy


My Top 5 Pro Wrestling Pride Matches 2015


Hello all and welcome to a new blog, this time I would like to talk about UK wrestling. I have managed to go to a massive number of shows over the past few years. Mostly in the South west area, I have been as far as Devon and Cornwall to go and see a show. So what I would like to do is put together the Top 5 matches in my opinion I have seen over the last  year. These are from Pro Wrestling Pride as I have seen them quite a bit over the last few years and been treated to some Tremendous matches.

Trying to narrow this down to 5 has been so so hard. there have been so many great matches this year at Heroes and Legends events + more that could of made this list. If you want to check out these matches to see what I'm talking about you can get DVDs of the events at Pro Wrestling Pride shop Click the link below which will take you directly to the Pro Wrestling Pride DVD shop!

Please see my picks below along with the match report that I did at that show too.


Pro Wrestling Pride Truro Cornwall

PWP world Title match

1, Big Grizzly vs Mr Anderson



image

This was their return match after Mr Anderson had beaten Grizzly in Pagnton a few months before. Grizzly wanted his title back and was going to do everything he could to get it. This match was pure entertainment it had twists and turns and took you on a journey, it didn’t end when everyone thought it would and really built well throughout the entire match. This to me is a PWP match of the year contender.

Here was the match report I did at the time

Let me just say 1st off that this match was incredible both Big Grizzly and Mr Anderson put on a brilliant world title match for the crowd in Truro the natch was so good the fans were chanting "this is awesome" This could well be a 2015 PWP Match of the Year contender.



Big Grizzly comes out 1st and he looks pissed off. It looks to me as if Big Grizzly has not forgotten about his title loss to Anderson back at PWP Heroes and Legends in Paignton. Grizzy is in the ring and he is pacing awaiting the entrance of Mr Anderson.

Mr Anderson comes down into the ring and Grizzly is ushered to the apron, Mr Anderson then gets the ring Announcer Aaron to bring a chair into the ring and Aaron stands on the chair with the microphone ready to drop it in Front of Anderson but before he can Anderson elbows Aaron right in the groin! it got a massive laugh from the crowd!

Aaron (after a moment!!) then goes to put the microphone in front of Anderson and Anderson takes the microphone this time and starts his in ring introduction from Green Bay Wisconsin, weighing 19.33333333333 stone (beautiful touch from Anderson) Mr Anderson........but before he can say Anderson again Big Grizzly is in the ring and attacks Anderson from behind and the match begins.



 Grizzly attacks Anderson with a series of punches and pushes Anderson to the corner, but Anderson comes back out and Grizzly gets hot with a backdrop with leads to Grizzly going to the Outside, Anderson goes outside with Grizzly and they fight into the crowd and up the tiered seating!

Both men then come back down and are fighting on the floor by the ring and Grizzly hits big chops to Anderson and gets Anderson in position for a powerbomb on the floor but Grizzly gets backdropped hard onto the floor the sound of Grizzly body hitting the floor echoes all throughout the arena, Anderson gets Grizzly into the ring but as Anderson goes to come in Grizzly grabs Anderson head and pulls him through the 1st and 2nd rope and Anderson feet are hanging off the 2nd rope and Grizzly hits a big 2nd rope DDT!!!
 
As the match continues Grizzly is becoming more dominant in his attack he has Anderson in a front face lock and then brings Anderson to the canvas and Grizzly then transitions onto a rear chinlock, Anderson manages to battle up from this position and it looks like the tide of this match is changing but it is not be  as Grizzly whips Anderson into the corner and hits him with a running clothesline. They then comes out of the corner and Anderson falls to the canvas Grizzly decides to go up to the 2nd turnbuckle  but he is taking a long time and Anderson manages to get up and get on the 2nd Turnbuckle with him both men now are jostling for position and Anderson goes to lift up Grizzly for the Green Bay Plunge but Grizzly cuts off Anderson and pushes him off the 2nd rope to the canvas.

Grizzly then jumps off the 2nd rope and hits a massive 2nd rope senton bomb Grizzly and Anderson hit each other and are both on the canvas both men are on their knees in the ring punching each other Crowd Cheering for every Hit Anderson lands and boo-ing for every hit Grizzly lands!!!


Both men are now back on their feet and Anderson goes for his Mic check finisher but Grizzly finds his way out of it, Grizzly then gets hit into the corner and Grizzly comes out and Anderson picks him up in the firearms carry in an amazing feat of strength gives Grizzly the Green Bay Plunge!!!

Grizzly is slowly getting to his feet and Anderson again goes for the mic check but Grizzly blocks this again and then grabs Anderson by the Throat and hits the Big Griz Chokeslam he covers Mr Anderson 1....2.....and kickout from Mr Anderson!!!

Grizzly brings up Anderson and goes to Irish whip him into the corner but senior referee Ed Dyer is stood there and he gets squashed and is out on the canvas. Anderson hits the mic check and covers Grizzly but there is no referee! Grizzly is out and the crowd are counting along Anderson tries to revive the referee but out of no where JD Knight enters the ring with the PWP world title and he goes to hit Anderson but JD gets caught with a Mic Check but the belt falls to the feet of Grizzly, Grizzly runs at Anderson who is now stood up and hits him in the head with the title Grizzly goes for the cover but Anderson kicks out again!!

Grizzly cant believe it, Grizzly gets ahold of Anderson and goes to bring him up but Anderson gets a small package but gets a 2 count! JD is up on the apron and Anderson knocks him off Grizzly is then able to hit a DDT and now revived Referee Ed Dyer Counts to 3 and we have a brand new PWP World Heavyweight Champion Big Grizzly!




 Winner and New Pro Wrestling Pride Champion - Big Grizzly


2,Chris Andrews vs Mason Ryan

Teignmouth April 2015



Wow to be honest with you I don't know where to start with this match these two big men had an incredible fight and this was a Damm special match. I got immersed in this Match and if you want to see a cracking title match this is worth getting on DVD when it comes out it!

In my opinion they built this match so well with both men face to face to begin with and shaking hands before the bell rings. Both men Have such presence and look even bigger in real life than they do on TV. As soon as the bell rings both men tie up and start wrestling each other reversal counter reversal with neither man getting the advantage.


As the match continues Mason Ryan gets the advantage and hits a huge standing suplex onto Chris Andrews which makes the ring shake in front of me!




Andrews Comes back at Mason Ryan after Mason is hitting right hands to Andrews with no effect, Andrews is now in the ascendancy and hits a running power slam onto Mason Ryan for a 2 Count. Andrews then gets reversed on a Irish whip attempt and Mason Ryan goes to leapfrog but lands on his left knee and it buckles and Andrews can take advantage of this an starts working Ryan Leg, Andrews then gets Mason Ryan in the figure four leg lock and it looks like the Match could be over but Ryan makes it to the ropes.


Both men go to get up and and Andrews goes to a TKO but this is blocked by Ryan and then Ryan hits a powerbomb he immediately pulls Andrews up for another one and then goes for a third but Mason Ryan Left Knee that was injured earlier gives way and Andrews rolls up Mason Ryan for the Win.

loved this match and in my option told a fantastic story that they told both guys are so talented and they really showed off their skills here. crowd were chanting this is awesome too :) #NicelyDone

dominator, Caine and Keizer take Harding to the corner and lift his les up while Harding is holding the top Rope Keizer jumps off top turnbuckle and hits a double stomp on the chest of John Harding. 

How John Harding is surviving all this I don't know!

Unfortunately for him there is more to come as the chair lays flat in the ring Domintor and Keizer throw John Harding to the ropes and pick him up and put him on the shoulders of Robbie Caine and Robbie hits and incredible Powerbomb into the chair! 

Darren Saviour hits a double top rope drop kick onto Dominator and caine and Sabu gets back into the ring and is taking it to both men and hits a double DDT onto UK Doninator and Caine! 

UK Dominator is on the outside and John Harding goes to jump through the 2nd Rope but gets smacked one head with a metal tray! John Harding is out and is on the floor in front of me. He has had an insane match.

Meanwhile in the ring Robbie Caine and Sabu are battling and  Sabu has a chair but UK Dominator comes in and Caine and Dominator take control and Caine gets the arms of Sabu and and Caine stands on the apron and has Sabu left arm as UK Dominator goes to hit Sabu with the chair, Sabu moves and it hits Robbie Caine on top of his head! 


UK Dominator about to hit Sabu
Robbie is out in front of me with blood pouring down from the top Of his head and he is looking in a really bad way. meanwhile Sabu has set up a table in the ring and Robbie face gets placed on the table and Sabu goes to the top rope with a chair and hits Arabian Facebuster with Chair hitting Robbie Caine on back of his head and putting him through the table! 

Sabu then gets the pinfall and the win! 



Winners - Sabu, Darren Saviour and John Harding 

There is carnage all around me after this match Robbie Caine blood is everywhere all over the table and he is taken from the ring. John Harding gets himself back into the ring and the crowd chant 'Thank you John' John grabs the mic and thanks all the fans. 

Iv got to say Robbie Caine is one tough Person he really showed his physical toughness and his ability in this match and how the hell he continued i don't know. 

In addition i have never seen someone take as much punishment live as John Harding did tonight he really gave all of himself to this match and did everything possible to win and the fans showed the appreciation as a result. 

Wow what an incredible main event extreme rules match! All 6 men have to be congratulated on making this the best 2nd Anniversary main event! 


4, Ultimo Tiger vs Jigsaw Catch Division Championship


Chikara USA star Jigsaw vs Catch Champ Ultimo Tiger





Jigsaw and Ultimo Tiger
I got really absorbed into this match and this was one of the stand out matches I have been looking forward too. Tiger has had some great bouts this year but I honestly think this was his best to date. Jigsaw is an incredible talent and both really had a great match. I probably won't be able to write everything that happened here to do it justice but here goes!! :) 

Kids in the ring 

Ultimo Tiger has a special entrance for this show he has 4 children with him all in Ultimo Tiger Masks they accompany him to the ring! 

The little tigers leave the ring and the bell rings. Now you'll have to bear with me with this match these two are so quick and so smooth that there was some fantastic chain wrestling to start off this match with reversal and counter reversal by both men which resulted in a stalemate. 

Jigsaw then starts to take control of proceedings and gets Ultimo tiger by the head and goes for a suplex but this is reversed and tiger goes for sliced bread as this is reversed also. 

Tiger manages to come back at jigsaw and jigsaw is sent to the outside Ultimo Tiger then does the Ultimo dive over the rope and onto Jigsaw! 

At this point again the crowd are chanting 'this is awesome' and 'this is wrestling' Jigsaw gets back in the ring and tiger comes back at Jigsaw  and goes to the top rope but misses on jigsaw, Jigsaw seizes upon the opportunity and hits Tiger with a combination of strikes and quickly goes into Brainbuster for which he gets a two count - Jigsaw screams at Tiger to stay down. 

Tiger then switches around jigsaw grabs him from behind and picks him up for a blue thunder bomb which gets tiger a 2 count. 

Tiger is then able to hit sliced bread and get the pinfall victory and retain his catch division championship. 

Winner - Ultimo Tiger

All the fans are clapping after this match and Tiger holds out his hand for Jigsaw and Jigsaw bats it away but then says into the mic 'No Handshake this needs a hug! Hug it out!' 

hugging it out

5, 8 Man Tag Team Match


Darren Saviour, Hawksaw Jim Duggan, Danny Walsh and John Harding

Vs


C2 Calum Cain, Tyler Hawke, Roderick Strong, Mark Walsh

 

This match was incredible the crowd was so loud for this match and went totally nuts! I was so carried away with it myself and love matches like this as I got lost in the moment and most importantly they make me smile.
I sat there taking it all in and was smiling for the whole match  being a long time wrestling fan and sitting on the front row watching Hacksaw Jim Duggan literally feet in front of me was something I thought I would never have an opportunity to say in a sentence. I will be honest I was so into this that I wont remember every detail of the match but here goes!!

There were chants of hoooooooo every few seconds from the crowd and even a "usa usa usa" chant for Duggan too, honestly the feeling in that building was tremendous the vocal energy of the crowd and feeling in that building may be something that I don't get to experience again that close up but will be something that I'll remember for a very long time
.
on to the match C2 come out first wearing new t shirts and a new banner  Calum Cain, Tyler Hawke, Mark Walsh and ROH Roderick Strong make their way to the ring with the lovely and gorgeous Tara.


Tara with C2

C2 in the ring

Out next to a massive ovation from the fans Darren Saviour, John Harding, Danny Walsh who all point to the entrance way and out comes Hacksaw Jim Duggan! with 2x4 in hand Hacksaw makes his way to the ring and all C2 dive out as Hacksaw, Saviour, Walsh and Harding all look at them from the ring. The crowd is going nits already and before the match is chanting "This is Awesome" C2 attempt to come up to the apron but jump back down again as Hacksaw comes back to them with his 2x4. This happens twice more as C2 don't seem to like the look of what is transpiring. Crowd are getting louder and louder and Hacksaw, Saviour, Harding and Walsh all have a group team talk in there corner then finally Roderick Strong gets up on to the apron and into the ring.

Team talk hacksaw, saviour, harding and walsh

Roderick goes to take on Hacksaw but gets knocked down and the crowd give another hoooooo chant for hacksaw!! Darren Saviour gets tagged in and starts working on the arm of Roderick String and then makes a quick tag to Danny Walsh who does the same thing Hacksaw then gets back into the ring and continue to work on strong as things aren't looking good for C2. Tara is looking on from Ringside. Strong manages to get out for the ring and tags Cain as John Harding now enters the match for his team, John gets caught in the corner as Tyler Hawke now gets himself involved and takes on Harding.
As the match continues Danny Walsh is battling Strong again and hits a great side suplex onto strong and then hits a massive elbow drop from the top rope which is broken up by Mark Walsh
All the men then end up in the ring and brawling with each other and its a melee in the ring although John Harding was not the legal man he gets rolled up and referee counts the pinfall, the referee counted the pinfall on the illegal man and Hacksaw, Saviour, Walsh and Harding loses the match and C2 get away out of the ring.

Winners - C2
