Main Event Wrestling – Planet of the Primate, Innisfree, Longbenton 27/01/17

MEW’s first show of 2017 is many things to many people. For many it will be their first wrestling show of the year, for some it will be the long awaited return of one of the Northeast wrestling scene’s biggest legends, Dave Carbon after more than 18 months in retirement. To Liam Slater it will be his first defense of his Northeast Championship. And for me it will be the end of approximately six months of organisation as the Calling Spots Championship Tournament comes to an end and the first ever Calling Spots champion is crowned. So without further ado here is our preview of the show. Continue reading

My transport options to the show were a 2 hour bus ride from Newcastle or Heworth, or a 1hr one from Sunderland (autocorrect tried to change Sunderland to both “underhand” and “syndrome” read into that what you will) plus a metro, or a train. I got the train, and it was crammed. Luckily I’ve been playing a fit the obnoxiously shaped blocks into the frame game on the old dog and bone recently, so the game of human Tetris to get the guard in and out of his cupboard at every stop on the way was a bit easier than normal.

Main Event Wrestling: Toon Tussle Preview

FB_IMG_1466727778153

What a time to be a fan of wrestling based in the Northeast of England. Main Event Wrestling: Toon Tussle will be the fourth show in a busy month of wrestling and off the top of my head I can think of at least five other shows that could also have attended. New promotions seem to be popping up every other week and competition to put fans in seats have never been higher. However, while all the new companies fight to establish a brand and get their name out there another promotion is able brag that it has been established for over ten years and has entertained literally thousands of customers, many of whom may not even have been wrestling fans (remember my friend Kirsty anyone).
