Resistance Pro Wrestling is a promotion based out of Chicago, IL. It was created by Billy Corgan (of the Smashing Pumpkins) who is a huge fan of pro wrestling. This show is my first exposure to it and I like it! First of all you have someone hosting the show (Zach Thompson) from “the control center” which really brings back good memories of “Mean” Gene Okerlund on the weekly WWF TV shows. Second, they have really good production values. Well lit, creative camera work, nice clear audio and most of the talent looks top notch (not dingy and sloppy like a lot of indy wrestlers). It’s a good show and I am looking forward to watching the first 4 episodes to get caught up on what I’ve missed so far.
All of these matches come from their show called “Point of Entry” on October 20, 2012:
- Nikki St.John vs. Melanie Cruise for the R-Pro Women’s Championship (this match saw The Baron Brothers and Lou D’Angeli get involved)
- Rising Sun (Samuray Del Sol and The Aztec Emperor) vs. “Marvelous” Matt Knicks and Chris Castro
- “Lonesome” Jay Bradley vs. “The Boss” Bobby Lashley vs. “The Ego” Robert Anthony for the vacant R-Pro Heavyweight Championship
