free magazine

As you may or may not know, we make a professional wrestling magazine. Over the past three years, our team of writers, artists and photographers have worked extremely hard to create what we believe to be the best independently published wrestling magazine in the world.

 

We’re old school. Our magazine is best enjoyed in it’s true format – PRINT. We have been told that “there is nothing better than enjoying a copy of Calling Spots, filling in the crossword, on a Sunday, with a cup of tea”. We also appreciate that you work very hard for your money, so you need to be sure our magazine is for you before you give us your hard-earned £1.99 (plus a pound for the postman). With that said, we do strive to offer superb value for money, both in terms of the quality and content of the magazine as well as with the free gifts we often give with orders of our printed magazines.

 

With that in mind, we have decided to take the ‘Pepsi challenge’ and demonstrate why we believe our £1.99 fanzine is great value for money at half the price of the market leading UK-based wrestling magazine. So much so that we would like you to sample a digital version of our magazine for FREE.

Please click the link below to access a FREE version of the eighth installment of our alternative professional wrestling magazine. This will open in your web browser to read as a 25mb PDF file. This can then be downloaded to your desktop, tablet or mobile device.

 

There is no ‘catch’ – we just want to give as many people as possible a chance to see what we do and to see why our amazing readers have such great things to say about our humble little magazine. If you enjoy it, please tell us about it, share the link with a friend for them to read it but also be sure to check out our SHOP page to grab a ‘proper’ printed copy of our latest issue to support us and help our continued growth.

The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment

REVIEW – BY NEIL ROGERS

The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment dvd

I remember when I was about 11 years old; my history teacher Mrs Mearden teaching my class about the Spanish Armada and telling us it was one of the biggest naval fleets ever assembled. At that point Ruth Gilpin, who was born and raised in Spain, put up her hand and told us that when she was taught the subject in Spain, that they were taught that it was a dozen or so old dilapidated ships and that “The English” had been lucky to win. My point being, in history, facts can be lost or changed over time with the victors putting their spin on things and the losers doing the same. Due to this simple fact of life, I expected that a lot of things mentioned in “The History of WWE: 50 Years of Sports Entertainment” to have to be taken with a pinch of salt. I am pleased to say that I didn’t find that to be the case.
