BREAKING: Beyond’s “Uncharted Territory” Returns In October

*The Following Press Release Was Issued By IWTV*


BREAKING: Beyond Wrestling’s Uncharted Territory picked up for third season!

Beyond Wrestling’s critically acclaimed series, “Uncharted Territory,” returns to IWTV this October. 

The third season of the weekly series will stream live on IWTV every Thursday night at 8pm ET, beginning on October 7th. 

Season three will consist of 13 episodes and conclude on December 30th.

At the time of its debut in April of 2019, “Uncharted Territory” was the only wrestling show broadcasting live every week that was not produced by WWE.  

“There is no substitute for LIVE,” says Beyond’s Drew Cordeiro.

“We have spent the last 18 months putting together a roster of the best young, unsigned athletes in pro wrestling. The first two seasons of ‘Uncharted Territory’ launched many careers into the national spotlight. Season three promises to be the most competitive yet. Our crowd in Worcester has the most important job in pro wrestling since they decide who will carry the industry into the future.”

More details on the return of Uncharted Territory will be made available in the coming weeks.

You can watch the first two seasons of Uncharted Territory any time with your IWTV subscription.

WrestlePOST – Pro Wrestling Under Your Thumb

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

Armed with a background of both marketing and 20 years of restaurant management experience, RJ had worked for the West Coast Wrestling Connection (WCWC) as a referee, ring announcer and interviewer for five years. One of his last projects with The WCWC was to create an app for them.

Once their weekly television show came off the air this past December, RJ had an opportunity to move on. He figured, “Why not create an app for everybody?”

“That is one of the main reasons I did it,” said RJ. “Any database out there that I have found is messy and out of date if you’re looking for pro wrestling promotions, so I wanted to bring those two things together.”

Thus, the WrestlePOST app was launched in March 2019 with the purpose of being a tool for fans, promotions and wrestling talent to find each other, buy and sell gear, merchandise and equipment, as well as post and find other wrestling-related services.

“In the time I spent in wrestling getting to know the performers, if there is a struggle, it’s [for] independent contractors to market themselves and try to promote themselves and get booked,” said RJ.

WWE Stomping Grounds 2019 Preview/Predictions

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

Stomping Grounds (Or Stomping Ground? We had to literally look at the poster to remind ourselves) comes at a time when main roster television has become uninspired at best. Is it just Lesser Super Showdown aka Less Than And Not Equal To WrestleMania?

It only made sense that last night, the WWE app accidentally let out a notification that the show was “about to begin,” clearly meant for tomorrow night. It was quite a “universal” problem (wink, wink).

We almost wanted it to happen yesterday, just so we can get it over and done with already.

The Wild Card rule continues to drag down Raw and SmackDown in quality and has made both shows feel the same. We have started to forget who is on which show now. What’s the point of a brand split then?

This probably has to do a little bit with SmackDown’s move to Fox in October. Maybe Creative has saved their best stuff for then, but it’s a chore these days to watch. Give us something. Anything.

Outside of the imaginatively hilarious and outlandish Bray Wyatt vignettes, the storylines have become immensely repetitive – Shane McMahon says stuff, Drew McIntyre is angry, Sami Zayn loses, Alexa Bliss is a disgruntled Starbucks customer, R-Truth loses the 24/7 Championship and wins it back (although not this week), Ricochet may or may not win his match and Baron Corbin is simply terrible.

You have not missed much outside of the aforementioned. Shame.

* “I experienced drugs and alcohol. I experienced self destruction on a life and death level.”

WWE WrestleMania 35 Preview/Predictions

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

NXT TakeOver: New York (or TakeOver: Brooklyn V?) came, conquered and impressed everyone in all its glory.

300-pound Heavyweight Hanson performed a handspring back elbow and a top rope senton to the floor, Velveteen Dream was the GODDAMN STATUE OF LIBERTY and the main event between Johnny Gargano and Adam Cole delivered more wows than a summer blockbuster.

To be frank – WrestleMania will pale in comparison to its NXT counterpart and that’s to put it nicely, despite the fact that Mania will run more than twice the amount of time and contain more than three times as many matches.

Below are our predictions to shape Mania into a halfway decent show. If you’ve followed the Raw side (without falling asleep), the build has been abysmal while SmackDown has held themselves together better thanks to Kofi Kingston’s journey, but there are still some flaws here and there.

Let’s get to it.

WWE NXT Takeover: New York Preview/Predictions

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

It has become yearly tradition that NXT trumps the main roster and this time around on professional wrestling’s biggest weekend, it’s set to happen again.

Two nights before WrestleMania graces New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, NXT “takes over” Brooklyn’s Barclays Center (yet again) and if history’s doomed to repeat itself (again), we’re in for a treat.

Compared to WrestleMania’s overbooked 15-match extravaganza, TakeOver’s refined to five simple bouts.

We’ll give our preview and predictions below.

Good, Bad & The Ugly – WWE TLC 2018

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

Welcome to “Good, Bad & The Ugly,” the newest review concept where we’ll break down shows according to three ratings – Good, Bad or Ugly. The results will tally up to give us the Final Decision on the show. 

 

 

Headed In 

– In the midst of a Creative shake-up, we’re still fresh off two big heel turns – “The New” Daniel Bryan (WWE Champion) and Dean Ambrose. Meanwhile, on the Raw side, Ronda Rousey (WWE Raw Women’s Champion) had dominated all before her but a huge obstacle in “Knockout Sensation” Nia Jax, notorious for her punch on “The Man” Becky Lynch. To top it off, we’d have the first-ever Women’s Tables, Ladders and Chairs match for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship between Champion Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Asuka. This should be a fun show, albeit a long one since we have a grand total of 12 matches. What is this, WrestleMania? Even past Manias never had that many bouts.
