By now we guess you are sick as a chip of reading everyone’s end-of-year awards? Best wrestler of the year, show of the year, etc, etc. So our year-end awards, in typical Calling Spots style, are a little bit different. So read on to find out who picks up the least important “awards” that they will ever win – albeit ones that thy have all worked incredibly hard to earn and are all deserving winners:

Wrestling in London – When talking with some friends recently it was suggested that the British style of wrestling, as it were, was dead. And whilst I agree that the traditional style has changed drastically, I see it as more of an evolution than a termination. Whilst British wrestling used to have definite distinctions that made it separate from other nations, modern British wrestling is a lot more inclusive, taking ideas and motifs from a wide range of other influences and blending them together into something unique. This ideology is a direct result of the melting pot of nations that these fair isles have become. A multicultural society leads to a multicultural entertainment.
I made a throwaway remark on Twitter today about going on a “promotional world tour”. Which is obviously ridiculous, but it got me thinking: just how many corners of the world could I “visit” via the wonders of technology these days? Could I spread the message of our little project, while talking about random wrestling nonsense through podcasts, interviews, websites, shops, even random bathroom walls if there is scope for it?
So, 5 days after the release of the debut issue of Calling Spots, I am delighted that half our stock is gone already. It’s amazing to me that after 7 weeks of me having a blast, making a fan magazine about something I love, people WANT to read it and see it. Having shipped copies to America and Canada, the ‘zine is already going global.
For anyone that has already made their purchase: Thanks you SO MUCH. I made this thing for you guys so I am glad you are enjoying it. To anyone thinking about it, here is what Twitter is saying about the Calling Spots Fanzine:
So what exactly is in the Calling Spots Fanzine?
The ‘zine is only 2 pounds, which is about $3.10 in the States, plus postage. All money raised will go into making issue 2 exactly how you want it as well as getting loads of extra stuff to bung into your envelopes (some copies of issue 1 will come with random wrestling presents included FREE!!). So what are you waiting for? Click the “Merch” tab and get YOUR copy today.
