So it looks as though I'have in fact exhausted Poundland's supply of cheap wrestling toys for the foreseeable future but I still have a need to give you the lowdown on some polymer pugilists. Instead of some lousy fakes I've taken a step towards respectability in an odyssey to official merchandise and a sextet of … Continue reading Woeful Wrestling Figures:Royal Grumble.

My toy story continues! Those nice folks at Poundland have gotten their mitts on another clutch of plastic wrestling figures of questionable origin.

Hulk Hogan versus AJ Styles? Easy, The … Continue reading WWF: Woeful Wrestling Figures.
Don't call it a comeback. Hello and welcome to the first edition of Wrestling in the Clinton years in quite some time. If I can be slightly personal for a moment, my break from this was due to a severe bout of depression that nearly claimed more than just my blogging hobby so in an … Continue reading Wrestling in the Clinton Years: Big Wang Vader.
Hello and welcome to one of the more significant editions of Wrestling in the Clinton years, this being the first of the famous "Disney tapings" from the famous Florida theme park and the first episode since the reveal of the third man who joined the Outsiders at the previous night's PPV. Get this, the third … Continue reading Wrestling in the Clinton years: You didn’t get the memo about casual Monday?
By Martin Dixon (@BunnySuicida) WCW Monday Nitro, July 1st, 1996. Yes it's that time again, time for another scintillating edition of Wrestling in the Clinton years, a better slice of 90s nostalgia than the New Age Outlaws getting a title run in 2014.
