I’m just going to give a few words on some of the other promotions out there. These are things I don’t follow regularly, but I’ll catch a show or match when I have the opportunity.
Lucha Underground: I finally got around to watching an episode of Lucha Underground recently. After about three minutes in, I was hooked. The presentation of the show is phenomenal, set in the telenovela style of Mexican soap operas. Shows hinge on their wrestling though, and Lucha delivers. This is a promotion I’m definitely going to check out more.
TNA: Is it still called TNA? Or has it officially changed it’s name to Impact? Regardless, it doesn’t matter much. I haven’t watched TNA for a few years, though I still follow what happens. TNA has a few amazing guys who I like to watch. Kurt Angle is one of my top three favorite of all time, and Bobby Roode could main event any promotion in the world. But something with TNA just doesn’t click for me.
Ring of Honor: Speaking of things not clicking… is one of the Briscoe Brothers still champion? He is? Well, moving on then.
And that’s pretty much it. There are so many other promotions out there, and I try to stay up to date on EVOLVE, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, CHIKARA, CMLL, Dragon Gate, All Japan, etc etc. I try to catch the big matches that get put up online, but I won’t pretend to be an expert on any of these promotions.
