Spotlight: Candyfloss

My spotlight series returns, this time to introduce you to one of UK's brightest new stars, Candyfloss.

Candyfloss is one of my favourite new talents here in the UK. The London native is a regular on the UK independent scene, plying her trade up and down the country and making new fans wherever she goes.
Debuting a mere year ago, she has grown in leaps and bounds already having great showings against Dahlia Black, Jinny and Little Miss Roxxy.
By all means don't let her happy go lucky attitude and sweet name fool you, this girl can go in the ring, happily mixing up her style to utilise high flying, solid ground work or her Candy Cane cross arm breaker submission.

Candyfloss was trained through one of the UK's finest companies, PROGRESS, whom she also works for.
Her time at the ProJo shows, she is excelling rapidly and is turning more than a few heads and I think that international talent will start to look to Candyfloss for matches shortly.
At a time where womens wrestling has never been taken more seriously, the focus is really on women who can not only wrestle amazingly but outdo many of their male counterparts. Candyfloss yet again fits this catagory, whether  face to face with other women or mixing it up with guys, she holds her own and does a wonderful job.

Wrestling, however, comes with risks and that was felt last year when she unfortunately semi-dislocated her elbow. Despite this set back she merely dusted herself off and rehabilitated the injury over 4 months and came back better and sharper than ever.
Again to get injured so early into a career can sometimes incite fear or trepidation into any worker, Candyfloss however powered through and hasn't looked back. For that, I say kudos.

We have a wealth if talent brewing in the UK right now, both male and female, yet through all of this Candyfloss has constantly remained a fun carefree character, working hard and getting a fantastic reputation from her matches. She often puts me in mind of Nixon Newell and Candice Lerae which i feel is a big compliment as I see those women as awesome performers and consumate professionals in ring and out.

Still young she has many years to adapt and grow but as a fan I can already see greatness in her future. Young girls looking to become wrestlers should use her as a role model and anyone else should get down to a show and check out what she can do live.
Please follow her on social media, please attend a show and please lend your support to a future star, today.

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.
