Spotlight: Nixon Newell

My Spotlight series continues, this time, Nixon Newell.
I want to begin by saying, just simply, Nixon Newell is fucking awesome.
Let me elaborate a little, Nixon is a welsh girl who is an amazing wrestler, persistantly putting on excellent matches and gaining an ever growing fan base.. and rightly so.
I am a huge fan of Nixon, she has impressed me massively, I'd go so far as to say that she is my favourite female worker in the entire industry today.
To my knowledge Nixon has been competing for 3-4 years and already has a wealth of experience, crossing paths with many of the top female names in wrestling, notable opponants include current Impact Knockouts Champion Rosemary, Candice LeRae and Kimber Lee.
She has also teamed with and fought many male wrestlers too including Pete Dunne, El Ligero, Mark Andrews and WWE UK Champion Tyler Bate. Personally I recommend you check her (forever) fued with Chris Brookes out, its utterly fantastic.
Nixon currently employs a front flip piledriver dubbed 'The Welsh Destroyer' to finish her opponents with (sometimes spectacularly from the top rope), and also uses a shining wizard known as 'The Shiniest Wizard' and it most certainly is.
Even just at the start of her career, Nixon has already competed all over the UK and had a successful trip to Japan, worked for various promotions and been highly spoken of in all wrestling circles. Although she primarily works as a face, i have been privelaged enough to have caught her heel work too.. was sensational, perfect psychology and performance as always.

For me, Nixon is the embodiment of hard work and determination, proof of what can be achieved with the right attitude and work ethic.
She has a fearless demeanor and never holds back in any match, a quality i personally admire greatly.
Go catch her at a show, trust me its worth the price of admission.
In a time where womens wrestling is every bit as valid and hard hitting as there male counterparts, we look to extraordinary athletes for the future. To carry the torch forward and show the world that wrestling in 2017 isnt about gender or size, but about passion and heart. In that mindset Nixon Newell is my torch barer for the future and i admire her for it.
With WWE announcing a Womens Open Tournament this summer, Nixon should be first name on the list.

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.
