The 10 Count: American Wrestling Promotions You Should Be Following

On the heels of National Geographic’s “Slammed”, the interest in independent wrestling is a bit higher than usual. If you’re a wrestling fan, you know about the WWE, or what we used to call WWF. There’s also the lesser known (for good reason) TNA/Impact Wrestling, but it’s still relatively well known in comparison to what we call independent wrestling. For the third iteration of The 10 Count, PINFALL Magazine brings you 10 Independent Wrestling Promotions … Read entire article »

Shadow Fox is the first masked wrestler featured in the Near-Falls series. His work has been often reviewed on PINFALL Magazine (See: EXW broadcasts). He’s been cutting his teeth on the West Coast like many other featured in Near-Falls interviews, but it’s only a matter of time until he’s working Nationwide. He’s considered a rookie in the business, but may be wise beyond his years. Find out more about the man behind the mask, and …

There was a lot of talking on this episode of Adrenaline Rush. It felt like everybody had the microphone at some point or another, even the referees. I’m not against a promo here and there, and I know everyone needs their practice, but then why not edit a bit? It felt like a TNA show, where the wrestling clearly was not the focus. The crowd was hot, and there were some decent matches on the …

CTC has only recently been featured on PINFALL Magazine due to a strong match between he and Jefe Lescano for EXW. He was instantly someone of interest, and now PINFALL Magazine takes you deeper into the mind of the man behind the mask. Crash Test Cody has been building a reputation for himself on the West Coast like a lot of the wrestlers featured in Near-Falls interviews, and if he keeps up the great work, …

This (last?) week’s Adrenaline Rush wasn’t my favorite all the way through, but it does feature a great main event. There were a lot of matches in a short amount of time, there was no tag team action, and the majority of my favorite acts weren’t on the card. I imagine the crazy weather in Arizona had something to do with the booking (double booking for some). I do think this has the “WOW” ending …

This Superstars is a must watch! Sure, about half of it is recaps (which you can fast forward), but the other half features internet sensations Zack Ryder and Dom Vitalli! I know you’re thinking to yourself, “who is Zack Ryder?”, but eventually the WWE will showcase him more. Dom you may (should?) all know from the EXW coverage that PINFALL Magazine has provided. The Divas match isn’t exactly enjoyable, but they did give the ladies …

To keep the interview flow going, here is the latest, with Mosh Pit Mike. The first time I ever witnessed Mike work was for EXW, but he’s all over the American Southwest. Here’s a guy who doesn’t seem to fear anything, has the ability to adapt in-ring, and has a personality that goes a long way. Mike wasn’t cheap with the answers, and I hope everyone enjoys his candid feelings as much as I… And …

I enjoy EXW shows every time I watch. There are parts that are a little more formulaic than others, but overall their shows always keep a nice pace. I love that we haven’t had to see that Steve “Balls” guy for a while, and that Cedric has been running The Business. The focus at the top of the show seems a bit misdirected. It’s fun seeing a guy like Willie Mack defend his belt against …

For the first time in the history of PINFALL magazine we’re bringing you an interview with a former-WWE superstar. In fact, this is the first of many different categories since Derick Neikirk is a bit of a “Renaissance Man”. The dude is an athletic specimen, a savvy businessman, and he’s been to the top of the professional wrestling mountain for a bit. The sky is the limit for Derick Neikirk, so make sure you pay …

PINFALL Magazine has been covering EXW a lot lately. Their shows are always a good time, and their athletes accessible, so it’s hard not to pull for them. Their latest episode may be my favorite yet. There are a few factors at play, but let’s just say I’m happy it focused on the actual wrestling. I think the match pairings are a highlight of this episode. A lot of styles complimenting one another… SPOILERS FOLLOW! Frenchy opening …
