Ring of Honor returns to Toronto!!!

Ring of Honor Wrestling returned to Toronto and put on two shows in a row at Ted Reeve's Arena.

Leading up to this weekend's events, fans were unsure what was exactly going to happen. You see, right now Toronto city workers have been on strike for well over a month, with no garbage pick-ups since it began. Instead, certain city owned parks and parking lots have been made temporary dump sites for people to dispose of their garbage. Ted Reeve's Arena was one such dump site. The parking lot is filled with so much garbage that they had to close it off to dumping (it's maximum allowable capacity is at 1,250 tonnes). So we had a stinky arena and all that garbage outside of it. THANKFULLY, and I don't know how they did it, but the arena inside did not smell as bad as it did last year (when there wasn't all that garbage).

The fans packed the arena on both nights to see some of their favourite indie wrestlers grapple and fight their way to victory. Some wrestling veterans even made special appearances on behalf of Ring of Honor, such as Ric Flair, Bret "The Hitman" Hart, and Lance Storm (who competed on both nights). It was really great seeing these guys and hearing them speak (even if it was for a short period). I got to see my favourite wrestler, Tyler Black, wrestle both nights too, so I went away happy.

I sent in the results of both nights to Dave Meltzer and he posted them up on F4W. If you'd like to view the results you can see night one's (here) and night two's (here).

I've included a few pictures that I took below. You can check out the rest of the pictures (here).

Star Wars: The Force Awakens!!!!!!!!!!

(Warning: Spoilers Ahead)
Star Wars!!!!  After a 10 year gap we finally receive a new entry into the now Disney owned Star Wars franchise!  So it is apt that the new entry is called the Force Awakens.
The movie starts off 30 years from where the Return of the Jedi last left us.  The Empire has fallen and the Rebels have seemingly disbanded.  But from the ashes of the past, a new threat has risen.  Out of the fallen Empire, a new army called the First Order has spawned, threatening to finish off what the Empire set out to do –  eliminate the force by terminating the last known Jedi, Luke Skywalker.  But as the Empire has evolved so have the Rebels.  Led by General Leia Organa, the Resistance (or the new Rebels) aims to find Luke first, to stop the First Order.
We are told this story through two new main characters.  Rey, who is a scavenger on the planet Jakku, who harvests scrap metals to earn a meal.  Finn, a turncoat stormtrooper who realizes his purpose could be something more than j…

About The Lam

Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin', so we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know, it was kinda like old squares in the battle like you see in the calendar named "The Battle of Waterloo" and the idea was: shark comes to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces. You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men. I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand.…

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3!!!!!!!!!!!! (PS4)

Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 is Activision’s latest entry into the bestselling Call of Duty franchise.  Developed by Treyarch Studios, the Black Ops subseries of Call of Duty games has been considered by many as the best of the COD games.  Whereas Black Ops 1 and 2 were direct sequels, BO3 seems only to be a spiritual sequel to its predecessors.  There is no direct or clear continuation of story from the previous entries.  Rather it takes the ideas of mind control and manipulation, and spins off its own story.
It’s a futuristic world, where humans are infused with technology (much like Robocop!) and fight alongside and against robots.  This time around, you assume the role of an unnamed soldier, who together with your partner Hendricks and a CIA agent named Rachel Kane, track down a former Black Ops commander named John Taylor as he and his former squad appears to have gone rogue destroying CIA sites around the world.  The story will take you to Singapore, Egypt and even wackier, you’ll …
