    Streets Ahead: Great Things

    As a change from the usual Streets Ahead format, we’ll be discussing multiple shows, DVDs and overall cool things in the wrestling world.

    This week, we’ll look at five great things that you should definitely check out!

    1. The Kevin Steen Show: The Tag Team Edition

    SteenShow

    Most of you are probably already aware of this or have even watched it, The Kevin Steen Show was too good to not mention here. This option is a good deal with two shoot interviews for the usual $20 DVD pricing. Past editions of The Kevin Steen Show with Adam Cole and Michael Elgin were fun but the one with The Young Bucks is clearly the best.

    From Scott Hall’s reaction of Nick Jackson doing a Swanton Bomb to the full story about Booker T hating the Bucks, they are very open about everything in their careers. Nick Jackson is VERY candid when asked about the Bucks 2011-2012 run in ROH. I would rank this among my favorite all time shoot interviews with Paul London and Brian Kendrick’s, CM Punk and Samoa Joe’s and a few other classics.

    The Super Smash Bros episode is also entertaining. Homeless dads, lamp shades and references to Gabe Sapolsky are always fun. On par with the Cole and Elgin shoots, a great bonus to have with the Young Bucks shoot.

    Streets Ahead: FWE

    In Streets Ahead, we invite columnists to write about wrestlers and companies that are still on their way up or you might not be too aware of. Simply put, if you don’t get on board with them, you’ll be streets behind.

    Today, we have Jonas Wakefield AKA @typicalROHfan AKA ME to gush about his love of FWE! We usually put plugs for the writer here but you’re already on the site, so thanks!

    What is FWE?

    Located in New York, Family Wrestling Entertainment puts out a great product of stacked cards and eclectic talent. You hear the term often but in this case, it’s true that FWE offers something for everyone. They spare no expense at bringing in the best talent available and their goal is genuinely providing the fans with what they want. Continue reading

    Streets Ahead: CZW

    In Streets Ahead, we invite columnists to write about wrestlers and companies that are still on their way up or you might not be too aware of. Simply put, if you don’t get on board with them, you’ll be streets behind.

    This week, we have “Nightlife” aka King of Anime to talk about Combat Zone Wrestling, or CZW. CZW is quite known for many things but we get a glimpse into what we may be missing with our preconceived notions. You can chat with Nightlife on Twitter about CZW, anime and more!

    What is CZW?

    Now, you may be asking yourself, “Hey Nightlife, CZW is pretty well-known.” First, that wasn’t a question, so you couldn’t have asked it, it was a statement. Idiot. Continue reading

    Streets Ahead: PROGRESS Wrestling

    In Streets Ahead, we invite columnists to write about wrestlers and companies that are still on their way up or you might not be too aware of. Simply put, if you don’t get on board with them, you’ll be streets behind.

    Today, we have friend of the website- TJ Hawke. TJ is here to tell us all about PROGRESS Wrestling, a fantastic British wrestling promotion. You can read more of TJ’s work at 411Mania and be sure to check out his website Free Pro Wrestling. Watching great FREE wrestling matches legally is a no-brainer so we highly recommend it. Take it away, TJ!

    Streets Ahead: AAW

    In Streets Ahead, we invite columnists to write about wrestlers and companies that are still on their way up or you might not be too aware of. Simply put, if you don’t get on board with them, you’ll be streets behind.

    Today, we have Jerome Cusson to tell us about the company that was once known as All American Wrestling, but now seems happier to just go by AAW. Jerome is our personal favorite writer for PWPonderings, so we highly recommend that you follow him on Twitter (@JeromePWPEditor) and read his work. Take it away, Jerome!

    Having now followed AAW for four years, I can honestly say that no company has improved more. They have found a way to use Ring of Honor talent better than Ring of Honor, given wrestlers their first major stage and created one of the best atmospheres in all of independent wrestling at the Berwyn Eagles Club.

    Streets Ahead: Absolute Intense Wrestling (AIW)

    In Streets Ahead, we invite columnists to write about wrestlers and companies that are still on their way up or you might not be too aware of. Simply put, if you don’t get on board with them, you’ll be streets behind.

    Today, we have Alex (aka @failraiser on Twitter) to tell us about Absolute Intense Wrestling (AIW). Take it away, Alex!

    I’ve said it before; I’ll say it again. There is no wrestling company in the world that I believe in more than Absolute Intense Wrestling. No wrestling company that keeps me excited to see the next show like AIW.
