Projo Wrestling Week 4: Feel the mat burns!

29-01-14_12-13progress-trainingHalfway through the course and this has probably been the most painful week ever. The fact we are halfway now means we have to start looking to that assessment in the last week, which will be a sad moment in its own right. I reflected a little bit on what I had learnt and overcome so far (thinking more mental toughness) and how much there is still to learn in the next month (all that technique). Continue reading

Projo Wrestling Week 3: A Breakthrough!

29-01-14_12-13progress-trainingNormally, I would start out by reviewing what happened this week at Projo, but I thought it would be wise to change things up. I decided we needed to get the perspective of another classmate and a good friend of mine, David, who was kind enough to give his views of the course below so far. Continue reading

Projo Wrestling Week 2: Those bumps are killer.

29-01-14_12-13progress-trainingThe second week of wrestling school beckoned and the intensity got turned up quickly. I was just fortunate to have a fully recovered neck after last week’s mauling, but I wondered how long that would last this week. Turns out not very long. Even though me and David turned up for the morning class to see what we would be doing that day, we still had the daunting task of getting through some tough exercises and drills. Continue reading

We are heading towards SuperBrawl VI which is only a month away, although you wouldn’t actually know it. Seriously, they are pushing Clash of the Champions (a free show) much harder than SuperBrawl (a Pay Per View, so money is on the line). Such is WCW anyway. Let’s get to the “Hogan/Savage v Horsemen and Dungeon of Doom Show”. Continue reading

We’re in Flair country this week, so it’s a homecoming for the World Champion! Until you realise that Hogan is in the main event this week versus Flair in a tag team match, so it’s not going to go well. Other than that, nothing else has really been announced, which is standard fare at this time. Oh, Clash of the Champions is two weeks away in Las Vegas. Brilliant. Let’s do this. Continue reading
