For a time, if you went along to UK independent wrestling shows it wasn't 'Ten', 'Delete', 'Yes' or 'What' chants you would have heard but rather the crowd in unison shouting 'Moose'.
It has been a difficult and painful few weeks for Brits. Terror attacks have tested our resolve and yet have demonstrated - as ever - that we will never submit to hate, nor be divided by it. Singular acts of hatred have simply served to inspire multiple waves of love and solidarity for and with victims and each other. We mourn and we remember but we do not give up.
Pro-Wrestling or Sports Entertainment has plenty of drama, athleticism and excitement but what it lacks is sufficient law enforcement and justice. One man seeking to change all that is the indomitable 'Supercop' Dick Justice.
Traditionally the West Country and specifically Plymouth wouldn't be the first place that came to mind when thinking about wrestling. London sure, Glasgow - well who hasn't heard of ICW? Maybe Preston in the North or IPW in Kent but Plymouth?
In the shadow of the Wrestlemania weekend, the British wrestling world lost one of its brightest stars and most favourite sons. Kris Travis, the 'Shooting Star' passed away after a two year battle with stomach cancer.
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.
Speaking exclusively to Royal Ramblings, Will was threatening to be so dangerous, the authorities would need to be involved

When we interviewed The Wolves, they told us that they had been excited to wrestle the "amazing" London Riots. There's a reason. The Riots, James Davis and Rob Lynch, have been making a huge impression across the UK with their fierce, emphatic performances.
In one of our first reviews of an independent show, we wrote that Will Ospreay "is a ball of pure energy whose reputation clearly precedes him, given the crowd were chanting his name within ten seconds of his entrance"...
As regular readers will know, the Royal Ramblings team went 'on tour' at the beginning of this year, looking out some of the best independent promotions the UK had to offer. The business that we kept coming back to, that kept receiving warm praise and whose management team, as Drew Galloway put it "knows how to have a good time" is IPW: UK.
She is one of the most powerful, talented and experienced women in wrestling the world over. Jazzy Bi aka The Alpha Female, has wowed crowds across Europe and Japan. In the UK for some special appearances, she found time to sit down with us and talk about her past, present and future. Make sure to follow the Alpha Female because as ever, she has big things ahead of her.
Romero was magnificent, his stiff kicks prompting full-throated 'Rocky' chants. An intelligent wrestler, he wove a good story with Bodom, including plenty of pops and notably Romero clinging spider like to the ropes to avoid offences from his opponent.
Whether you know him as Eugene, U-Gene, Doink, Mr. Wrestling or any other name, Nick Dinsmore has unquestionably earned his spot as one of the most entertaining and impressive athletes and trainers in the wrestling world...
IPW puts on high quality events and generate a positive atmosphere. There is no question that it was worth the drive, the investment of time and money. Sabre Junior and Scurll spoke to the crowd before they exited the ring, with the former saying the UK scene is hot at the moment. Judging by IPW's standards, it's on fire.
