The Tag Rope: Year One *FREE E-Book*


Recommended Posts



Hey all!


For those who may not have heard of us, my name is Ryan Carse and I'm the editor of The Tag Rope, a quarterly professional wrestling magazine based in the United Kingdom.
What started out originally as an assignment for university has now blossomed into a fully-fledged publication, available in both physical and digital formats across the world.
We believe in long-form, thought provoking articles, captivating photography and original artwork for the intelligent professional wrestling fan who demands more from the content that they consume. For the last year, we have tried to redefine what a professional wrestling magazine can be, and we’ll continue to do so moving forward.
If this is your first time checking out The Tag Rope, we sincerely hope you enjoy the read. Inside this ebook, you’ll find a collection of articles from the first four issues of The Tag Rope, ranging from a recollection of what it was like to be in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome the night the Streak was broken to a retrospective of the life and times of Antonio Inoki.
For existing readers of The Tag Rope, there's still plenty of treats inside this ebook, including remastered articles with new artwork and an exclusive article from The Tag Rope's Iron Man, Bill Thompson. 
Inside this ebook, you'll find:
  • Barbed Wire Hell, a look back at only the second-ever no ropes barbed wire deathmatch ever to occur on British shores, as CZW owner DJ Hyde battled Britain's own, Jimmy Havoc. We had the opportunity to speak to both men before the war, allowing you a very personal and unique insight into the lives and thoughts of both competitors before a match of this magnitude. 
  • Oh! Inoki!, a retrospective of the life and times of Antonio Inoki, a tale of Russian strongmen, fearful politicians, peace through sports, and fighting spirit. 
  • Interview with Dave Mastiff, our first-ever interview conducted with The Tag Rope, with one of Britain's best big men, straight from the Black Country, 'The Bastard' Dave Mastiff. 
  • The Streak is Over, we go back to that fateful night in New Orleans when The Undertaker's historic undefeated Streak at Wrestlemania was broken. We were fortunate enough to be in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome that night, and we recall just what it was like to be a fan in the building on one of the most shocking nights in WWE history.
  • Your Guide to Wrestle Kingdom 9, an in-depth look at the January 4th Tokyo Dome extravaganza, as Dan Brookes tells you why 2015's biggest wrestling event may have happened only four days into the New Year.
  • Bruising Royalty, longstanding contributor to The Tag Rope, Bill Thompson continues his series of 'Forgotten Near Classics' with an exclusive article written just for this ebook, where he looks back at the Uncensored 1996 clash between Lord Steven Regal and Fit Finlay. 
  • Super J Cup: Twenty Years On, we take a look back at an event that Dave Meltzer refers to as "the most incredible single night of wrestling ever", as New Japan Pro Wrestling hosted the inaugural Super J Cup event that launched the careers of Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero and many more. 
  • Interview with Tommy End, taken from our most recent issue, a tell-all interview that Tommy End himself has described as one of his most personal, raw, encompassing interviews he's ever conducted. Tommy End is one of Europe's elite, and speaks candidly about the occult, his American excursion and more.
  • The Ringside Perspective, resident photographer extraordinaire Oli Sandler takes us through some of his best shots of 2014 from IPW:UK. Photography is an incredibly important aspect to The Tag Rope, and we've ensured that we provide you with simply the best.
