Pro Wreslting Pride review Hereos & legends 2 Nov 1st Results

Pro Wrestling Pride Review Heroes and Legends 2 Nov 1st Results

Ladies and Gentleman welcome to the Pro Wrestling Pride Megashow Heroes and legends 2 its nearly been 3 months since my last Pro Wrestling Pride show and got to admit that I am getting withdrawal symptoms!!

I have been looking forward to this event for months and ordered my ticket as soon as the event was announced got a Front row + Meet and Greet. Also included with this ticket is a pre show Q and A with Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase.

I have been to the last Q and A event which was with Raven so really looking forward to this one and asking Questions to Million Dollar Man and Pro Wrestling Pride superstars.
I went into the main hall in Paignton and it is set up with 5 rows of chairs and with a  table in front of us for the million dollar and pro wrestling pride superstars Eddie Ryan, Big Grizzly and more!

All the fans in attendance really seemed to enjoy the Q and A and enjoyed having their questions answered by their favourite superstars and learning a bit more about them. When Pro Wrestling Pride do another one of these I suggest you go to it, they are so informative and hearing the talent speak in their own words about situations matches, their favourite moments etc is something so special, so keep your eyes open for any future Q and A events.

Pro Wrestling Pride started letting people into the building for the main show and Aaron Noble Mackie comes out as always and welcomes us all to the show alongside Referee Martin Longley and Senior Referee Ed Dyer. Aaron is talking through the show for this evening and then says its time for some wrestling, the fans are chanting loud as the show gets underway.

Before the show begins special guest for the evening Miss Cornwall 2015 comes out to the ring and unfortunately she falls while in the ring. I really felt for her, although she took it really well and keep smiling too and had a great sense of humour, the fans found it entertaining and have now coined the phrase "Miss Cornfall"

As always everything written below is my opinion and is done on my memory of the event Read on and Enjoy :)

Ultimate Wrestling Match
Ultimo Dragon vs Johnny Kidd

Before I start let me say that this match was totally incredible the wrestling in this match is like nothing I have ever seen before they did moves that I have never seen before and transitions in and out of holds that I hadn't seen before either. It was so immersed and it was great to see both men challenging each other and giving each other their best. This match was a lost art form and gave such a good illustration of two perfect wrestlers how know wrestling holds inside out.

instead of writing about this match and want to show this match in as many pictures as possible its impossible to put into words All theses moves and how great they were so instead here are some photos from the match below with what Kidd and Dragon did. This is well worth getting the DVD for when it comes out so you can see how supremely great this was.

The match ended When Dragon who had Kidd in what looked liked a reverse Figure 4 was able to keep Johnny in the middle of the ring and Johnny had no choice other than to tap out and Submit.

After the match Ken Anderson comes out and hits Grizzly with Mic Check and Rhyno hits 3 gores of Grizzly to end the show!!!!

Winner and still Pro Wrestling Pride Heavyweight Champion - Big Grizzly

I said after Truro show in August that Match Big Grizzly had with Mr Anderson would be hard to top and I think that this match is on a par if not surpassed it a little bit. This Match was totally fantastic great wrestling, brawling in the crowd, chairs, even Rhyno falling down the stairs. Big grizzly is having a standout year in pro wrestling Pride Question is now who is going to be able to stop him?

Grizzly has his Anarchy Uprising by his side also, So anyone looking to take away Pro Wrestling Pride Heavyweight Title from his grasp with have to deal with all of them.

It Has just been announced that Grizzly next title defence will be a 4 way match in Exeter. as of this writing none of the opponents have been announced but there is only a 25% Grizzly will retain going into it, this is looking like bad news for the champ.
Overall I cant praise this event enough every match throughout was tremendous and the men and women put on a show and the fans responded in kind. Great chants from the fans with "This is Awesome" being heard a lot through the evening too. I think the energy of the crowd really helped the noise was massive and I think and feel that the performers fed off of this.

How will Pro Wrestling Pride top this? is the question I have seen online after the show the answer for me is I don't know but the great thing about Pro wrestling Pride is you never know what they are going to surprise you with next! For me this has to be one of the best Live Wrestling shows I have seen ever, truly was an Honor and privilege to sit front row and see how it all happened

After the show I was able to take part in the backstage meet and greet after the show Pro Wrestling Pride are getting known for these I was able to meet a lot of the stars from the show, speak to them, get autographs and pictures with them too, here is a picture below of some of my pictures from he meet and greet, Pro Wrestling Pride do these for all their shows so make sure you get a meet and greet ticket with your event ticket and meet the
