Issue 12 of Calling Spots: A Pro Wrestling Fanzine


Recommended Posts



We make a fanzine about professional wrestling and about to launch our 12th issue. We are nothing like Powerslam was or like FSM is, but we seem to be doing something right to make it this far. You can pre-order a copy of our new issue for just £1.99 at CallingSpots.com/wrestling-merchandise


Hopefully you will all agree that the front Paige of the issue looks particularly lovely?




Until then, here is a list of what is inside our brand new issue....


The Beautiful Game - Ladies in wrestling are brilliant. Let us tell you exactly why.


Exclusive Bret Hart Interview - Stewart Brookes of The New Generation Project Podcast catches up with Bret for a chinwag during his recent UK tour.



Hastily Hated Helmsley Part 2 - Part two of our career retrospect of The Game - Triple H.


All American Time Grapplers - Join Lex Luger and Bob Backlund as they travel through time in the Lex Express.


The year 1995 in WWF - 365 days of golden sports entertainment!


Ambrose & Rollins - The feud of the Summer (and Autumn) by WrestlingNewsSource.com's Lee Jordan.


Jimmy Fucking Havoc Part 2 - We finish up our interview and photo shoot with the worst bloke in Britain thanks to Portrait of a Wrestler.




DVD Reviews - We review the latest WWE DVD releases.


ICW Fear and Loathing VII - Martin Smith of Snapmare Necks takes a very Scottish look at the biggest wrestling show to take place in his home country for many, many years.


You can grab a copy of this issue for £1.99 at CallingSpots.com or if you take out a printed subscription at CallingSpots.com/Subscribe then your first order will come with a free goodie bag which includes some stickers, a badge and this A3 print....




If you do grab a copy of the 'zine, or if you have read one of our recent issues, we would absolutely love to hear from you.


Cheers for reading guys - Rich and the Calling Spots Team.

Those covers really are a thing of beauty.


Excellent issue once again although the Triple H piece was pretty pointless and hated the Savage DVD review but everything else was brilliant reading, excellently written. Loved the Jimmy Havoc stuff, makes me want to check out his work, I need to see some PROGRESS.


As someone who adores 1995 WWF it was nice to read something positive (not too negative at least) about that year.


Have bought every issue and the difference between issue 1 to 12 is amazing, you guys really are growing and better so much better as writers and at putting the fanzine together. To go from looking like something a few lads knocked up in their bedrooms to something that wouldn't look out of place of the shelves of Smiths in such short time is brilliant.


Here's to plenty more.

Good evening gents,


Thank you both for your support and for these kind words. It's really great to hear from both a loyal reader who has been with us since our humble beginning two years ago as well as somebody who is completely new to the 'zine.


Looking back, our first issues were a million miles from the product that we produce today, but those formative 'bedroom years' do still have a place in our hearts. They were VERY much DIY style. In fact, we have all of our back issues available for free to subscribers on the website one you log in - so you can see the evolution of the 'zine here.




Thank you both for taking the time to tell us your likes and dislikes. Feedback like this will help us ensure that our team write content that you want to read and that you won't find elsewhere.


Thank you - Rich and the Calling Spots team.
