September 2003

Here you will find mostly reviews of the "This Week in Pro Wrestling/Puroresu" series. TWIP was supposed to be a weekly thing, but as you can see, laziness quickly ensued. Looks like from about the 1/28/03 edition, on, Scout helped and did about half of the reviews. From there, it became for a review-type thing. Below those, you will find a few even more generic, older reviews. And below that are our PRIDE 16-25 predictions.

Keep in mind there may be some outlandish stuff written (see "The Monster and the Master"). Some articles need to be taken with a grain of salt.

Old reviews:
Here, are some of the reviews from somewhere in between summer 2001 and summer 2002. Most of these are full of the play-by-play trend of reviewing that used to be in style. There are other older reviews that may be viewed for comedy purposes that I'll probably put up soon.
