Main Event Wrestling June 5th Show Review

On October 2nd the Calling Spots team will be setting up camp at one of the biggest shows in the North East as the region’s longest standing promotion – Main Event Wrestling – celebrate their tenth anniversary at Northumbria University. We are very excited to come chat wrestling, bring some magazines and maybe even give out some freebies to everybody who visits our stall. The MEW card is stacked (more on that later) so, much more importantly than coming down to see us, be sure to come down and see how good our lads and lasses are as thy mix it up with the best wrestlers in the UK.

Learning the Ropes


We caught up with comedian and life-long wrestling fan Carl Hutchinson to discuss ‘Learning The Ropes’, his new solo comedy show about realising a boyhood dream and becoming a professional wrestler. What we found out was that we can expect a lot of laughs, deep philosophical questions, and proof that Rampage Brown is as mean as you think!

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.
