2015 My Year of Wrestling

I only managed to attend 9 wrestling related events, and I am very much aware that 4 of those events took place over the course of 1 weekend, but still it’s 4 separate wrestling themed events.  I was honestly surprised by the lack of shows, I thought I had been to more.

However I did watch more wrestling this year than I think ever before.  With WWE network I watched all 12 PPV’s, 5 NXT takeover events, and 4 special live events and numerous past events.  Also I’ve watched more independent wrestling on You Tube than before mostly due to the Rawlternative events.  Also I’ve watched my share of AAA, New Japan, PWG, and more Japanese promotions.

Let's not forget to include the large number of wrestling podcasts that I took in as well, Art of Wrestling, Talk is Jericho, Stone Cold Podcast, Jim Cornett, and many more.

So maybe I didn’t hit a ton of shows in person, I watched me some wrestling!

I’m not going to rate the shows that I went to, I will say one of the best days of wrestling I have been to in many years was March 7th at the Boston Pro Wrestling Marathon in Abington.  Two sets of matches and a live Art of Wrestling Podcast in between.  It was a really fun day of wrestling.

Top to bottom the best show I went to was Limitless Wrestling in November.  The best match of the year was probably Biff Busick vs. Mike Mondo from show 1 on March 7th in Mass.

The WWE show was special because it was Addison’s 1st WWE Show (Canaan’s 4th WWE show) and one of the best WWE house shows I have been to in a long time.

Here are the shows I attended, I hope you too had a great year of wrestling.
