We are delighted to announce that we have released our first ever book. That’s right, we have made a proper, 270 page book; Calling Spots The Collection – Volume 1. Thanks to your support, our magazine has evolved so much over our almost-three year existence into what it is today.

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.

Waist Not, Want Not:

The following is a FREE article, written for the latest issue of Calling Spots. Issue seven of our fanzine is our Championship Edition, where we celebrate great professional wrestling champions and championships, from all over the world and spanning every era. With that in mind, resident journalist Chris Pilkington’s latest article explores….


 You’ve toiled for years. You’ve trained day in, day out, paid your dues and against all odds you’ve made it to the dance. You worked even harder, intent on proving yourself worthy of your spot and slowly but surely worked your way up the card. One day, the boss pulled you to one side and told you what you’d been longing to hear since the day you first started running the ropes.  You’re finally winning a championship. Now comes the hard part. It’s time to make the hardest decision of your wrestling life. It’s time to decide how you’re going to wear your belt.

What we look for

Here at the Calling Spots office, we often get emails asking if we are looking for new writers, so I wanted to answer this publically. Are we looking for new writers? Well….technically no. We are never really looking for new contributors of any medium, but that does not mean the opportunity is not there.
