ROH: Night of Hoopla and Reclamation


Ring of Honor has finally pulled back on its ban on digital cameras, just in time too: Gregory Davis was able to capture all the glorious, pants-free moments of Night of Hoopla in Chicago. He then traveled to Milwaukee for night one of Reclamation. Enjoy our photos and read the full results of the tour here. There’s also a photo or two courtesy former ROH champion “Die Hard” Eddie Edwards, welcome to the staff! Be sure to check out his new DVD here.

AAW: Point of No Return 2013 Gallery


At AAW’s Point of No Return, we saw Silas Young and Jimmy Jacobs prove that even without titles they could still be at the forefront of the roster. We saw the AAW debut of Rich Swann, who seemed to find the Eagles Club a fine roost from which to perform his avian arsenal. We saw Truth Martini offer Saraya Knight a dollar to take out MsChif. We saw ACH and Kyle O’Reilly take things to another level in the Last Hero’s first defense of the AAW Heritage title. And we saw Michael Elgin and Davey Richards in a battle worthy of an early Match of the Year nod.

See the photos from the first AAWSHIM weekend show below from Gregory Davis (1-39) and Christopher Codina (40-54).

SHIMMER Galleries: Volume 49, Volume 50, Volume 51

Here’s our final gallery from the most recent SHIMMER tapings. This was the one where Allysin Kay, as she long ago prophesized, got in the ring with The World Famous Kana (although rumor has it she’s still looking forward to a one-on-one confrontation). Also, Athena continued making her case that she is the best by taking on the best in Ayako Hamada. All this, and lots of ninjas. Enjoy!

Greg, boss that he is, attended yet another three day international wrestling summit with the AAW/SHIMMER Weekend. Here’s his wonderful photos from the first of the four SHIMMER shows. This was the one where Athena found herself in the main event, Courtney Rush lost herself in the past, and, delivering on months of trash talk, Portia Perez actually, finally, for real beat Kana. Enjoy!

AAW: Defining Moment 2011 Photos

Earlier this month Chicago’s AAW put on its Defining Moment event and it proved to be the best AAW show I’ve seen to date. Every match was good and there were numerous memorable moments: Keith Walker redefined “Beast Mode” in a savage performance. Jimmy Jacobs scored the most brutal choke out I’ve seen this side of Portia Perez, bringing back memories of the old, violent Jimmy we knew and feared. Gregory Iron and Michael Elgin continued to take steps to prove they’ve got “next” on the wrestling scene.

The massive pre-SHIMMER six women tag was thoroughly entertaining. and featured then Champion and #1 Ranked Wrestler in the World, Madison Eagles. There was mist and betrayal and a reverse Frankensteiner that wiped the champ out for the last several minutes. SHIMMER faithful suffered more tragedy as The Awesome Threesome lost their titles in an impromptu three-way match. Alex Shelley (CLAP-CLAP-CLAPCLAPCLAP) brought his old school ROH A-Game in a losing effort to Shane Hollister (whom more people should be talking about). The ending screamed for a rematch. “Classic” Colt Cabana put a smile on everyone’s face, but the always dour Silas Young kept the gold.

All in all, really good, fun show. We look forward to where AAW goes next (hopefully it’s more Alex Shelley vs Shane Hollister matches). Enjoy the photos by GregChris, and myself.
