By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

 

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) was once signified as the “Be All, End All” of professional wrestling.

By now, that statement has been detracted with talent like The Young Bucks, Colt Cabana and Kenny Omega, all of whom have achieved financial efficiency and without any WWE stints (or pushes in Cabana’s case) to boot.

Ron Snyder’s “Wrestling’s New Golden Age: How Independent Promotions Have Revolutionized One Of America’s Favorite Sports,” released by Sports Publishing, succeeds in its goal to inform and explore just how independent wrestling came to be from its eerie territorial beginnings.

Check out the latest episode from our friends at The Wrestle Talk Podcast With Joe & René, which features Special Guests National Wrasslin’ League St. Louis Champion Gary Jay and comedian/wrestling junkie Patrick Brandmeyer. 

Hailing from St. Louis, Missouri, Jay began his professional wrestling journey in June 2003 under the tutelage of Adaw Raw, Jordan Lacey, Nick Tyson, and Dingo. Over the past fourteen years, Jay has competed in many of the most recognizable professional wrestling promotions in the United States, including St. Louis Anarchy, Glory Pro Wrestling, Metro Pro Wrestling, IWA Mid-South, Full Impact Pro, Atlanta Wrestling Entertainment, Absolute Intense Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Freedom, Anarchy Championship Wrestling, Inspire Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Zero1 USA, Pro Wrestling Revolver, Chikara Pro Wrestling, Beyond Wrestling, and Dragon Gate USA. Jay is the NWL St. Louis champion, the Pro Wrestling Freedom heavyweight champions, and one-half of the Atlanta Wrestling Entertainment tag team champions. Last weekend, representing Glory Pro Wrestling, Jay won the Scenic City Invitations trios tournament.

Regularly known for wearing his trademark Wayne’s World hat, Brandmeyer has been known as one of the most knowledgeable individuals regarding the St. Louis independent professional wrestling scene for over a decade. Brandmeyer is a walking encyclopedia of professional wrestling knowledge. Whether it is talking with fans about recent events, discussing events that happened years ago in any of the major St. Louis professional wrestling promotions, or stepping behind the microphone at High Risk Wrestling or Dynamo Pro Wrestling, Brandmeyer is the benchmark for professional wrestling historians in the St. Louis area. 

Discussions include WWE Survivor Series 2017, Paige’s return, update on wrestling legend Kamala and much more!

Review – Chris Jericho/Peter Thomas Fornatale – The Best In The World

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

Thrust once more into pro wrestling relevancy with his recent challenge to Kenny Omega slated for New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Wrestle Kingdom 12 on Jan. 4, 2018, Chris Jericho’s career stock may be the highest it has ever been.

At this point, it’s like what hasn’t he done?

As he suffered from a popularity decline, he resurrected himself with things like “IT,” “The List,” “Stupid Idiot,” pretentiously expensive scarves and “The Gift Of Jericho” last year. He became the equivalent of a walking meme, even long after the days of “Jericho Invented Everything.”

It will always be argued though that Jericho’s true creative renaissance was between 2008-2013, when he was forced to do different things to get his now-stale character over with the fans and thus, churned out the best promo/ring work of his career.
