Repeating what others have said but this looks like a massive amount of fun. If I didn't have work the next day I'd definitely be considering making a visit. Best of luck!

Can’t wait to fill this place with loads of random wrestling tat. Tested the consoles and games in there last night, all good.

Managed to get along to the first hour of this and it was great fun! Nicely done Kaz - just a great opportunity to play an old favourite game again. Even the loading screens bring back nostalgic memories.

My record:

Won 1 (beat Kaz himself in a Hell in a Cell match, I was Chyna, he was Boss Man)

Lost 1 (Steve Blackman was defeated in a Hardcore match by Paul Bearer)

Drew 1 (because neither of us knew how to pin on WrestleMania 2000)

Firstly, my memory tells me that I had to deal with something, so had to pass the controller on to a replacement 80% of the way through the match. I lost nothing damn you!!!

@HarmonicGenerator - another victim of 50/50 booking.

To be fair, he was going to be our headline act to bring the punters in, but was relegated to midcarder when Maffew from botchamania turned up. At that point, we just didn’t have anything for him.

But seriously, really appreciate you coming along HG. As mentioned, I need to reflect on what did/didn’t work and go from there.

That's as may be, but I seem to recall you hitting two Boss Man Slams in the opening minutes and not keeping me down for even a 1-count, I think we know the clear winner here! Treat me for just who and what I am.

I’ll give you that.

There were some brilliant one liners I over heard last night. My wife was having a shot on Smackdown 2 on PS1 and she just said, “where’s Awesome Kong?” No idea where that came from, I think she’s probably watched a 20 mins of wrestling in her life.

Then in response I heard a complete random saying, “just use Viscera”... I mean, fuckin hell.

Another convo I heard was about Hogan marrying himself so he wouldn’t lose anymore of his money in divorce proceedings. But only if the faces of Ed Leslie were all of his best men.

HUUUUUGGGEEE UPDATE.

Right, I’ll update properly on the weekend but I’m buzzing about some news I’ve had.

1) We’ve been invited to set up Grapple Arcade at Ryton Retro (Debuting large arcade event in the N.E)

2) We’ve been invited to set up Grapple Arcade at NERG, (Massive arcade event in the N.E) 

3) The 2nd event for Grapple Arcade in the craft bar has been decided.

4) In talks with a national gaming event (I’m overwhelmed)

5) We’ve just agreed terms with a brewery who will be creating a Grapple Arcade craft ale.

Its been a good day!

(I need to stop saying ‘we’, it’s become a habit, it’s just me, so might need to do something about that at this rate).
