‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (May 12th 2019)

Welcome to this week’s Ring Of Honor review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have Bandido in the main event against Shane Taylor. Isn’t it nice when I don’t tell any jokes? Well, it isn’t for me. Why did the chicken cross the road? …to go watch Ring Of Honor! Yeah, my writers quit, so I’m stuck with Reading Rainbow humor.

Match #1: The Bouncers (Beer City Bruiser and Brawler Milonas) defeated Coast 2 Coast (Lsg and Shaheem Ali) and Shinobi Shadow Squad in a Triple Threat match The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

Nova got off to a fast start against Lsg, but The Bouncers eventually used their significant weight advantage to take control. Coast 2 Coast got on a roll, as Ali took out his four opponents with a dive to the floor. In the end, The Bouncers prevailed after

‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (May 5th 2019)

Welcome to this week’s Ring Of Honor review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have Dalton Castle going full-tilt boogie on his minions for…I don’t know what. Hey, I don’t write their crap, just mine. Anyway, this should be a fun one, so let’s dance Nancy. Is that a lame joke? If I have to ask, it probably is.

Match #1: — Pj Black defeated Eli Isom (w/Cheeseburger and Ryan Nova) The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

Black took control of the fast-paced match by targeting Isom’s upper body. Isom came back with a Death Valley Driver for a near fall. Isom went for a springboard move, but he slipped off the top rope and landed hard in the ring. Black hit a super hurricanrana followed by a springboard 450 for a near fall. Black finished off Isom with a moonsault into a double stomp.

‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (April 14th 2019)

Match #1: Shane Taylor defeated Luchasaurus The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

Taylor hit a draping cutter off the top rope, but Luchasaurus answered with a Shining Lizard for a near fall. Taylor rocked Luchasaurus with a big clothesline for a near fall.

After landing a knee strike to the head of Luchasaurus, Taylor hit Greetings From 216 for the win.

My Opinion: 3 out of 5 – Overall, this was a good match that had some big shots thrown like the potential for Owen Hart to

‘Roh/Njpw G1 SuperCard’ Pay Per View Review

Welcome to this review of Ring Of Honor’s/New Japan Pro Wrestling’s G1 SuperCard, which emanated from Madison Square Garden in one of the great moments of wrestling history. I’m Nathan Favel and right here on Nerdly, we have one of the biggest events in wrestling history to discuss, so let’s do so.

Match #1: The 30-Man Honor Rambo: Winner – Kenny King

My Opinion: 3 out of 5 – This was less about great wrestling and more about big surprises. The action was of a certain quality, which should neither condone nor condemn the match itself. In what may have set the precedent for the card, the Japanese wrestlers were the best thing here. Overall, this match got the crowd excited, which is just fine.

Match #2: Ring Of Honor World Television Champion Jeff Cobb (New Champion) defeated (New Japan Pro Wrestling) International Wrestling Grand Prix Never Open-Weight Champion

‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (April 7th 2019)

Welcome to this week’s Ring of Honor review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and I’m changing my reviews from My Take to My Opinion, because every-time I write My Take, I feel like one of those obnoxious balding hipster dinks. Okay, let’s get to the wrestling.

Match #1: Dalton Castle and The Boys defeated Karl Fredericks, Clark Connors and Alex Coughlin The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

The Boys and the young lions battled back and forth early in the match until Castle was tagged in. The former Roh World Champion ran wild on all three of his opponents and then used The Boys as weapons, repeatedly sending them flying over the top rope onto Fredericks, Connors and Coughlin. Boy No. 2 ended up scoring the win for his team after he and Boy No. 1 pulled off “twin magic.”

My Opinion: 2.5 out of 5 – This

Ring Of Honor’s 17th Anniversary PPV Review

Welcome to this review of Ring Of Honor’s 17th Anniversary Pay Per View, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and this review is a week late, which is more than I can say for the new Hellboy movie, which looks terrible. This show doesn’t look bad at all, so let’s see if Roh’s 17th anniversary spectacular can deliver the goods.

Match #1: “The VillainMarty Scurll defeated Kenny King The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

Taking a page from Scurll’s playbook, King made his entrance with a “Villain” cosplayer in an attempt to get into his head. It didn’t work. Early in the match, Scurll took out the faux “Villain” with a swift kick to the head. King halted Scurll’s momentum with a Blockbuster for a near fall and a Blue Thunder Bomb for a near fall. Scurll hit a

‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (Feb 17th 2019)

Welcome to this review of Ring of Honor, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have a big tag team title match for the main event, so don’t snap your fingers or the Avengers will die.

Match #1: Shane Taylor won a Six-Man Mayhem Match over Luchasaurus, Chris Sabin, Rhett Titus, Kenny King and Flip Gordon The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

King and Titus, who were former Roh World Tag Team Champions years ago as the All Night Express, faced off early in the match and battled to a stalemate. Then they started working together, using double-team tactics to get the better of Taylor and Luchasaurus. When King and Titus both went to cover Luchasaurus, however, the alliance came to an abrupt halt. Later in the match, after Titus, Taylor and Luchasaurus all hit big moves from the ring to the outside, Gordon one-upped

Home Entertainment: ‘The Exorcism Of Karen Walker’ DVD Review

Coming to the screen from Hereford Films, The Exorcism Of Karen Walker sees the British indie outfit switch genres from their usual output of movies. Having released the likes of the ‘We Still Kill…’ series and last year’s true crime story The Krays: Dead Man Walking, Hereford turn from gangster flicks to the horror genre for a feature based around Kirlian photography, a quick Google will tell you is a technique used to capture the phenomenon of electrical coronal discharges.

The film opens to a couple – Mitch (Shane Taylor) and Diane (Janine Nerissa Sothcott) – moving into a massive house, inherited from Mitch’s uncle, much to the dismay of his deeply religious mother (Jane Mcfarlane). Diane is pregnant, so the offer of a much bigger house is clearly welcomed at a time when their family is due to expand. However, things aren’t all they first seem. We learn

‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (Jan 27th 2019)

Welcome to this week’s Ring of Honor review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have more action from a league that is doing what it can to adjust in the wake of the existence of All Elite Wrestling, given that the new promotion has stolen its thunder as Roh nears the big Madison Square Garden card. Let’s see how every-thing goes with this show and what may be happening next.

Match #1: Juice Robinson defeated Pj Black by disqualification The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

Robinson extended his hand for the Code of Honor, but Black gave him a chop to the chest instead of a handshake. That fired up Robinson, who knocked Black out of the ring and hit him with a springboard crossbody over the top rope. Black eventually took control by using aggressive tactics and bending the rules. He hit

Watch the trailer for The Exorcism of Karen Walker

Ahead of its DVD release next month, a trailer has arrived online for the upcoming horror The Exorcism of Karen Walker. Written and directed by Steve Lawson, the film stars Shane Taylor, Janine Nerissa, Denise Moreno, and Rula Lenska; watch it here…

A delightfully old school horror movie in the tradition of the Hammer and Amicus films of the 1970s, The Exorcism Of Karen Walker is the first film to fully explore the concept of Kirlian photography – a process of photographing a person’s ‘aura’. Accidentally discovered by Semyon Kirlian in 1939, it has been the subject of much myth and speculation ever since. In the film, Diane and Mitch Walker inherit a house once owned by Mitch’s uncle Alexander, who was ostracised from the family after purportedly abusing Mitch’s sister Karen while dabbling with Kirlian photography. Karen has been in a somnambulistic state in an asylum ever since,

The Exorcism Of Karen Walker is the first film to fully explore the concept of Kirlian photography – a process of photographing a person’s ‘aura’. Accidentally discovered by Semyon Kirlian in 1939, it has been the subject of much myth and speculation ever since. In the film, Diane and Mitch Walker inherit a house once owned by Mitch’s uncle Alexander, who was ostracised from the family after purportedly abusing Mitch’s sister Karen while dabbling with Kirlian photography. Karen has been in a somnambulistic state in an asylum ever since, but Mitch slowly begins to realise that she was not abused: indeed Uncle Alexander was trying to help her as she was possessed by an ancient demon. Enlisting the help of Alexander’s one time colleague, renowned psychic Ada Devere,

‘Ring Of Honor: Honor Reigns Supreme 2019′ PPV – Results & Review

Welcome to this review of Ring Of Honor’s Honor Reigns Supreme pay per view. I’m Nathan Favel and we’re going to talk about this major event, right here on Nerdly, and decide if it lived up to its potential. Let’s get right to it.

3S beat John Skyler, Cory Hollis and Josey Quinn – Six-Man Tag Team Match

My Take: 2.5 out of 5 – This was a nice opening bout, but it didn’t do much to make this feel like a big PPV. The action was good, but none of it was beyond what you’d expect from a random tag match.

Mark Haskins beat Beer City Bruiser

My Take: 2 out of 5 – Beer City spent too much time pandering to the crowd for a match that didn’t have much going on any-way. Mark should have been booked with some-one more his speed, but there’s always a

‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (Jan 6th 2019)

Welcome to this review of Ring Of Honor, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have a four way main event. That’s not a sex thing, by the way. We have four people fighting in the main event for a title shot. Get it? I don’t.

Match #1: Jeff Cobb defeated Luchasaurus – Proving Ground Match The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

As per the rules of a Proving Ground Match, if Luchasaurus defeats Cobb or lasts the entire 15-minute time limit, he will receive a future shot at the Roh World Television Title. Immediately after the bell rang, the enigmatic Luchasaurus stunned Cobb with a spinning heel kick for a near fall. Luchasaurus tried to keep his momentum going, but when he charged Cobb in the corner, the champion caught him and hit a spinning suplex. Cobb followed with a superplex and standing moonsault for a near fall.

‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (Nov 11th 2018)

Welcome to this week’s Ring of Honor review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have the return of a big star that has been away for a little while. Matt Damon! Matt Damon! Matt Damon!

Match #1: Jeff Cobb beat Shane Taylor

My Take: 3 out of 5 – This was like watching two bulldozers ram into each other for over ten minutes… and that’s a compliment. I like-a da smash-smash! Cobb is wrestling machine who can pack a wallop into any-thing launches at his opponent. Taylor is not too far behind, but his weight is still holding back from doing all that he is capable of. How-ever, Taylor was able to show much more than he has in his last few matches and did some incredible slams that felt like they were coming out of nowhere. Make no mistake about my opinion of Shane Taylor, which

‘Hunter Killer’ Review

Stars: Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman, Common, Corey Johnson, Adam James, Henry Goodman, Colin Stinton, Carter MacIntyre, Shane Taylor, Mikey Collins, Will Attenborough, David Gyasi, Linda Cardellini | Written by Arne Schmidt, Jamie Moss | Directed by Donovan Marsh

American submarine Captain Joe Glass is on the hunt for a U.S. sub in distress in the Arctic Ocean. He soon learns that a secret Russian coup is in the offing, a conspiracy that threatens to dismantle the world order. With crew and country on the line, Glass must assemble an elite group of Navy SEALs to sneak through enemy waters, rescue the kidnapped Russian president and prevent World War III.

Donovan Marsh’s Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman staring, Hunter Killer is an unapologetic 90s action throwback and while it basks in the glory of outlandish politics and toxic masculine bravado, it undoubtedly should have been left in the era it was designed for.

Welcome to this week’s Ring of Honor review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and this is a few days late due to being abnormally busy during the earlier part of the week. Fortunately, that was a temporary thing and my life is back to normal, so I can jump right in and get back to work. So, as the Amish always say… “I wanna play X-Box… damn it!”

Match #1: “Hangman” Adam Page defeated Scorpio Sky The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

Page took the fight outside the ring early in the contest and rammed Sky into the barricade twice before lawn-darting him into the ring post. Back in the ring, Page set up for a move off the top rope, but Sky caught him with a leaping hurricanrana for a near fall. Sky had two more near falls before Page connected with a lariat.
