Posted by invizweb on March 20, 2013

2011 was an amazing year in Puroresu (Japanese Pro Wrestling). Daichi Hashimoto, son of legend Shinya Hashimoto, made his debut. Daisuke Sekimoto began working regularly for (and against) All-Japan Pro Wrestling. Dick Togo vs Antonio Honda (Jan 31, 2011) was an all-time classic. There was also this card:

WWE Road to WrestleMania Tour @ MSG Results & Thoughts (03/18/12)

Posted by invizweb on March 19, 2012

The first Pro Wrestling show I would attend.  The first Pro Wrestling show I would attend at Madison Square Garden (in the early 2000s, I attended the FILA World Freestyle Wrestling Championships at MSG) .  The first World Wrestling Entertainment show I would attend.  To say that I had butterflies in my stomach would be an understatement.  But when my friends offered me to attend with them, i definitely could say no.

I went to the event with two friends: a female henceforth known as Hobbit and her BigBro.  We arrived at 4:47 PM at Madison Square Garden when everyone was scurrying to get in.  Security seemed so rushed, they barely checked Hobbit’s bag.  Hobbit later remarked that she could have snuck in treats and water.  I would reply vodka but she said she prefers tequila.  I wouldn’t  say we weren’t surprised when we discovered our seats were stools in the back of the balcony area but that’s more of MSG making silly ideas to increase revenue instead of creating a more comfortable experience adding an additional row.

I was also befuddled when Justin Roberts instead of Lilian Garcia appeared.   But that is neither here nor there. Read the rest of this entry »

I Web of Fools Gold Presents- Another JackOff Recapping…StrikeForce

Posted by invizweb on April 17, 2010

So here I am again, out of hiatus temporarily to doing another Round by Round of  a StrikeForce show.  I have been too serious with these so tonight’s RxR is brought to you by Fentiman’s Curiosity Cola in the sense that I am not doing a show without 1/2% of alcohol in my system.  I will return when the show starts after I finish off finding out which of the previous stories are Fact and which are Fiction.

ROXANNE WINS~! And other King of the Cage “Toryumon” Results featuring MAMORU!!

Posted by invizweb on January 31, 2010

On January 30, 2010, former guest of the show, Roxanne Modafferi added another win to her record.  A few weeks back, the King of the Cage (C),  American Mixed Martial Arts promotion decided to begin their Asian expansion holding an event they would entitle “Toryumon” at the Okinawa Convention Center in Okinawa,  the accredited birthplace of Karate.  This reporter does not know if Ultimo Dragon’s copyright extends to the Ryuku Islands or if was expired to begin with.  Thus they contacted Roxanne, who recently fought StrikeForce W omen’s Lightweight Title contender Merloes Coenen (!7-4-0) in November 2009 in lL at the “StrikeForce:  Fedor vs Rogers” event, to fight Molly Helsel (8-8-1).  After some striking exchanges, the fight ended at 3:18 of Round 2 when Roxanne applied an inescapable Rear Naked Choke.
