    WWE Crown Jewel

    I’m still hoping for it to move to the 11,800 capacity Gateshead international stadium. The interchange has regular bus & metro services and is only a 10 minute walk. If everyone behaves themselves, at half time I can show them all the round-a-bout that I watched 35 minutes of the great north run from in 2009.

    Trump was asked on the news about if he’d walk away from Saudi, considering their weapons deal (selling to Saudi) is in high billions. He basically said it would be bad news if we ever had to do so. In his, Vince and many other minds this will blow over, as usual.

    Wrestling Pod Casts / Radio Interviews

    Ahh I get you, all good man, and that above wasn’t a direct gripe at you either. There have been a few absolute bellends on twitter... completely expected I may add. Some of who saying “why didn’t you add so and so, this is obviously shit”. They say as much after it’s been explained that every single pod that was put forward by the public or the pods themselves made the cut. No one was excluded who was submitted. It would be unfair for the organisers to add pods on their own accord as it could be deemed biased. So yeah, some people will always moan regardless. It’s been created in good sports with the view that the first one is just that, the first one, and they’ll hopefully learn and grow for next year. One thing I am really happy about being involved with this for (even as a sponsor) is that it has so far been completely fair. No chance we’re sponsoring next year, with the amount of prizes we collate, create send out, that’s my category next year, defo going to enter as a participant. I must also say, everyone of the participants have been an absolute pleasure to chat with, no bullshit at all, and all very supportive of each other. It’s great that the community can shine through in a positive light, bypassing some of the sheer bungles who have tried to pop up on twitter. They’ve just announced they’re doing a free prize draw for everyone who votes.

    Trivial Things That Annoy You...

    Umbrellas held by humans. Once a brolly is unsheathed and opened, its human operator transforms in to a complete fucking gargoyle. They forget basic fundamentals such as ‘other peoole’. People who think it’s acceptable to park outside of your house, blocking your driveway. When the flying fuck did that become a thing? Park outside of my house, fine. But blocking my drive... who in the shite do you think you are? I live near a school, and coaches like this think that this is fine, for up to 20 mins at a time apparently.

    In regards to these awards, just to make it clear and transparent, I was asked to become involved as a sponsor after it started so I’m not actually sure how it came to fruition. Secondly, we’re simply sponsoring it (prizes for winners) and have nothing to do with it’s workings, so feel free to mention any concerns to the organisers. What I can say is, from what I understand, they (Wrestle Hub) promoted it as much as they could for weeks on end. We (Grapple Arcade)promoted it on our twitter feed and also discussed it on our radio show. It was never going to reach everyone considering their size, but it reached enough to turn it in to something. Those pods involved (big & small) also seem to be happy with the way Wrestle Hub have conducted themselves so far. If not, I’d have fuck all to do with it and I’ve said as much privately and publicly. Also, a couple of people online had a pop at Wrestle Hub saying it was full of under 1000 subscriber pods. Which is A) bollocks considering the likes of Jericho, Pritchard and cultaholic are on there. And B) the most pretentious thing I’ve ever heard. Why should the new/up and coming pods not get a sniff? On top of that, it was listeners and fans of the podcasts that voted as to who made it through to nominations, and considering that within 3 hours there has apparently been over 400 votes cast, it seems to be doing alright. Don’t get me wrong, there are some glaring omissions, but their fans (including me) didn’t nominate them. I don’t envy them for taking the task on, but I can understand why they have. If it gains traction they can put on a larger scale version next year (unless someone else does) therefore potentially gaining a larger audience. It’s got to start somewhere and there’s always going to be unhappy podcasters that it didn’t reach, and that’s fair from both ends, but Wrestle Hub were present and again, there were plenty who seemed to notice. That’s the problem when there’s 1000000 podcasters though. But yeah, the voters voted and the winner will receive one of my shit trophys. Lucky bastards.

    I’m really sorry, I’m just being a prick now. In fairness all 3 posts are completely separate from each other (Soz modz). The first annual Wrestling Podcast Awards Are now open for voting. Lots of categories and loads of brilliant entries, based of submissions from the public, the hosts themselves and the other public. Yours truly is sponsoring the event (trophy / prizes blah), and it’s being promoted & hosted by twitter: @wrestlehub - Voting station here: https://t.co/8T4tFbpbct?amp=1 - Official tweet here: https://mobile.twitter.com/TheWrestleHub/status/1051548442160492545

    Just thought I’d pop this in here too. Just uploaded an interview to the Steel Chair Magazine website we conducted with North Wrestling owner, Andrew Bowers. Had a lot of fun with this one and I must say, from the live shows I’ve attended, they’re nailing it. https://vulturehound.co.uk/2018/10/the-great-up-north-with-andrew-bowers-from-north-wrestling/

    WWE2K19

    We’ve been running a poll about which is the better game, Fire Pro World or 2K19, and with less than a day to go and almost 70 votes, I’m pretty surprised by the result so far. I though FPW would have smashed it. Probably comes down to the fact much larger proportion of people only know about the 2K game, but still, whilst Fire Pro Wirld is being coined as one of the best wrestling games ever, we can’t deny the improvements to 2K19. Feel free to chuck a vote in. https://mobile.twitter.com/grapplearcade/status/1049208248933539840
