Spotlight: Alexander Roth

My spotlight series continues and its current subject may be one of the best kept secrets in UK wrestling.
I present to you all Alexander Roth.

In the UK scene it can be difficult to stand out, sometimes being a great wrestler is all well and good but if you dont carry yourself correctly you wont get over. Roth is a hell of an in ring talent mixing brawling, technical prowess and aerial skills, but more important is Roth's charisma, and he has it spilling over.

'The Wolf of Brawl Street' has been tearing it up all over the UK and has begun venturing into europe. Personally I was a fan after the first match I watched him compete in.
Roth has the ability to adapt to his opponants style and excel, having also performed in various last man standing and ladder matches. Each time coming up with unique and innovative attacks, as well as his usual arsenal, which includes his fantastic Nightfall DDT.

Having watched him in the ring I can attest to being impressed with the work ethic, but this translates to outside the ring too, wrestling and injuries come hand in hand, but having seen first hand Roth return from injury more vicious and more hungry to compete just shows me how determined he really is.

The London based 'Wolf' oozes confidence and performs incredibly well as either face or heel, cuts promos that spin from tongue in cheek to very agressive and is able to keep audiences attention without trying, which is not easy.
Roth employs a hard hitting smash mouth style that has seen him go toe to toe with some amazing wrestlers, recently including veteren Doug Williams.

If given a larger platform to compete on he could be one of the top names in the UK, he presents himself differently to anyone working here at the moment and I have no doubt would make believers of people seeing him for the first time.
I'd advise people to follow him on social media, attend shows to see him or check him out on Youtube.

Alexander Roth is a name many are learning and it will not be long until he breaks out to bigger things. Promoters across the UK should be paying attention as he currently accepting bookings and will add quality to whatever card he performs on.
Remember the name. You never know when the Wolf will be at your door.

Wrestlemania 34 Review

So as per tradition here is my official Wrestlemania 34 Review. Match by match I will give my opinions (for whatever they're worth), remember though, this is strictly my opinion and nothing more. With that, let us begin.. Pre-Show: We descend upon the Superdome and are greeted with the 5th annual Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal . As per usual, the poor unfortunate ones who haven't found themselves in a featured match on the card, begin slowly filling up the ring. The Battle Royal has always felt somewhat like an anticlimactic event, the winner gets a trophy but doesn't gain much else from the win. Being honest I wasn't bothered too much by who would win. Sad really. HOWEVER.. What actually transpired was something 'wonderful'. A highlight of sorts came from 'Woken' Matt Hardy bumping into Tye Dillinger and comically exclaiming 'Who are you?' before Tye showed him '10' and the crowd chanted, which in turn led to Matt

My 2017

So as usual I'm doing my year in review summery. 2017 has been an interesting year for me, in terms of growth, challenges and learning more about myself. Its been a year that at times has been difficult, but I feel like the things have been difficult in order to provide me with a stronger outlook and resolve heading into 2018. Life does have a interesting way of balancing itself, although bad happens eventually good will always rise up to equal it. I've met some amazing new people this year too. People that although I haven't known long, I am very grateful for their presence in my life. I feel very happy to have each and every person who has spent time with me or talking to me this year. You all know who you are and we all have great times to come. I broke straight edge after 10 years, something that was a big thing for me, an evolution of sorts. I've also added more tattoos to my body, which will continue next year too I have taken in some amazing gigs thi

Remembering Dave Melillo 'Talk Is Cheap'

Its funny how the past still influences the future, and in that vein its safe to say it's funny how my past musical loves can influence me still today. Anyone who knows me will attest that I have been a pop punk fan since they first met me, be it a year ago or 20 years ago. Back in the summer of 2006 I discovered an EP entitled 'Talk is Cheap', it was released through Drive Thru Records (a label that housed some of my favourite bands) and was by a singer songwriter called Dave Melillo. The EP was an enriched blend of acoustic guitar and piano laden melodies, all drenching a mix of forlorn and optimistic lyrics. The reason the EP stuck with me was simply because the songs are so accessable, especially as lyrically its easy to relate to everything Dave sang. Comparisons will be made to the likes of Dashboard Confessional or The Rocket Summer, and whilst the acoustic singer songwriter aspect is the same, Dave very much has his own voice and take on the genre.
