For most people, a WWE run would be the crown jewel in their career but Drew Galloway continues to lead the wrestling world. His roots are in the mighty Insane Championship Wrestling (ICW) and as one of its MVP's he's helping add to the companies international fan base which includes Olympic hero Kurt Angle...
ICW is the BEST WRESTLING promotion in the WORLD. It showcases world class talent and features the biggest names in the industry. ICW can rival any company, pound for pound. We might not have the same exposure as TNA, ROH or even WWE, but you can put any ICW Roster member on any of their shows and they'll blow you away.
As we wrote in our review of her book, "Jeanie Clarke has a remarkable story to tell and in 'Through the Shattered Glass' she has told it".
As ever, WWE is setting the pace for the entertainment world. Both on TV and live in person, the company is evolving, inspiring and revolutionising its approach. News broke last week that the company's Smackdown programme was to air live - for the first time ever - on Tuesday nights (at 10pm) on Sky Sports. Moreover, as part of a brand split, the show will now feature a distinct roster, with its own writing team and storylines too.
If you are lucky enough to meet Jeanie Clarke, you will likely find yourself instinctively drawn to her. Warm and kind, she has a disarming smile, is down to earth and continues to cut a striking figure. It is little surprise that she reached infamy in the wrestling world as 'Lady Blossom' the valet to 'Stunning' (and inspiration behind the subsequent moniker for 'Stone Cold') Steve Austin.
Over the course of nearly 4 hours, wXw put on some top quality entertainment. The atmosphere, the production value, the card, the talent and so much more had been carefully and thoughtfully weaved together to make for a great night. 16 Carat is named Europe's biggest and most famous wrestling tournament. Perhaps it ought to be called its greatest. Make sure you get there next year to see what all the fuss is about.
If you've been to a wrestling show recently, chances are you've seen a fast-moving, bespectacled, fan-beloved and yet understated photo wizard at ringside shooting the talent. This man is Oli Sandler AKA The Ringside Perspective and he is the go-to guy for many key UK wrestling promotion's photography needs.
