DVD Review: ArenaChicks Volume 1

Firstly, an apology – I’ve been meaning to write this review for some time, but other commitments got in the way. However, these are excuses, and I’m remedying that right now by producing for you a review of ArenaChicks Volume 1.

We first heard of a new project from ArenaChicks founder Amber O’Neal way back in 2009 when she spent the interval between DVD tapings at SHIMMER taking down email addresses from the fans for an upcoming venture. We didn’t hear anything about it for a year, and assumed it had come to nothing. Then we got wind of ArenaChicks – a new DVD series being produced with CWF Mid-Atlantic in the North Carolina area of the US. This is the first offering of what O’Neal is hoping to become another viable stage for female wrestlers to ply their craft, so let’s take a look and see what it’s like…

Now, unlike shows such as SHIMMER, NCW: Femmes Fatales, WSU and Pro Wrestling: EVE, ArenaChicks doesn’t produce one night of action – instead, it has individual matches on a number of cards and collates them all onto one show. For that reason, this is a collection of what you may refer to as exhibition matches, rather than having shows which build to a crescendo of a main event. Because of that, you need to remember the matches are filmed in chronological order, which means the best or highest profile match may not necessarily be the final one. (more…)

The Big News

“The true definition of madness is repeating the same action, over and over, hoping for a different result.”

Without even the slightest hint of irony, Jeff Jarrett used that quote from Albert Einstein on his Twitter. For anyone who may not understand the hilarity based on current events, let’s go back in time:

Last October, Jersey Shore star J-Woww did a one-shot deal for TNA which actually clashed with a new Jersey Shore episode when it was aired, garnered little media attention and cost thousands of dollars. Having not learned their lesson, TMZ reported this last Thursday:

“Former Jersey Shore castmate Angelina Pivarnick is officially returning to TV next month … but there’s also good news — she’ll be in a wrestling ring! So… she could catch a beating and stuff. Sources close to Angelina tells us after a month of negotiations she finally signed a contract with TNA Wrestling earlier this week.
 We’re told the “Staten Island Dump” will make her debut in a tag team match involving TNA’s Snooki-a-like… Cookie.”

Removing the element of surprise about her two week appearance, TNA even described that Pivarnick will call out J-Woww on this week’s live episode of Impact for a fight. At least we know what we’ll be missing while we fast-forward it. (more…)


TNA in “really doesn’t get it” shocker


Not content with throwing money down the drain paying for Jersey Shore star J-Woww last October (which garnered little real mainstream media attention and didn’t do a thing for those precious ratings), TNA has announced that it has signed up another Shore star for a two show deal – one that has an even smaller profile than the main motley crew.
