Wrestling fans absolutely love tournaments. Well, I know I do anyway. All across the world, tournaments are the highlights of every promotion’s annual calendar, such as NJPW’s Best of the Super Juniors, PWG’s Battle of Los Angeles, Lucha Underground’s Cueto Cup, WCPW’s Pro Wrestling World Cup, and Progress’ Super Strong Style. From the King of the Ring to the Cruiserweight Classic, tournaments have always been a part of WWE programming, yet in the last few years, they really have seemed to have made a comeback, with the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, and the upcoming Mae Young Classic. These tournaments always prove to be successful, pulling in a lot of praise and attention for their great in-ring action, surprising and memorable moments, and ability to create stars. With that in mind, perhaps it’s time for WWE to draw up a few more brackets and order a few more trophies. But what tournaments could WWE potentially do in the near future? Well, I have a few suggestions. Here are Five Potential WWE Tournaments.
With the G1 having already started, and the Mae Young Classic and BOLA taking place in August, it looks like we’re in for a damn good summer of tournament wrestling, so to celebrate, I’m taking a look at the greatest wrestling matches to ever take place within a bracket: here are my Top 10 Wrestling Tournament Matches.
I’d like to say that the WWE UK Championship is a dream come true, but in all honesty this is such an unlikely concept that I could never have even dreamt of this ever happening. For years, the UK has been pleading for another PPV emanating from our shores, but who knew that after a long wait, our patience would be awarded with not only our very own tournament and weekly show, but our own championship as well (and what a beautiful championship it is).
There aren’t many things that leave me in a state of shock, but this certainly did. The possibilities and potential for this tournament are immense, and could lead to some incredible matches, amazing moments, and world-class signings. So if you’re not already extremely excited for this major event in UK wrestling history, and convinced it will be utterly epic, why the hell not?!!!! Not to worry though, I have five whole reasons why the WWE UK Championship Tournament will be amazing.

I love a bit of merch. We all do; we want to show our support for our favourite wrestlers and promotions. The problem is that there’s so much beautiful merchandise out there, yet so little money in my wallet. Yet, no matter how light they may leave our pockets, we just cannot resist treating ourselves from time to time.
British professional wrestling is finally coming back to primetime television. In the last couple of weeks, social media and news outlets have been exploding over the news that World of Sport is finally making a return after 30 years for a two hour special airing later this year. With this monumental news exciting wrestling fans around the country, it inspired me to look at the history and potential future of World of Sport wrestling.
A wrestler’s finisher/s is/are the best weapon/s in their arsenal. It says something about them, explains how they choose to fight and how they decide to end their matches. Not only that, good finishers can also define the wrestler they belong to – what would Stone Cold be without the Stunner, or Scotty 2 Hotty without The Worm? Given how important they are, nailing a good finisher is one of the most important decisions a wrestler can make; sometimes they get it right, sometimes they get it wrong. In this list, I’ll be looking at those in wrestling today outside of WWE that really got it right. Unlike my best and worst WWE finishers lists, I will only be looking at the positive side of finishers in the world outside of Vinny Mac’s house of graps, for now at least anyway.
I’m going to be ranking the Top 15 finishers in Wrestling Outside of WWE today based on how effective they are, how believable they are as a move capable of finishing a match, and how visually appealing they are to me.
