If you’ve been a fan of wrestling since the 1980s, chances are you’ll not be able to read the title of this website without hearing Vince McMahon’s bombastic overtones.

Back Body Drop isn’t a wrestling news site. There’s already plenty of websites out there that either have sources, or cut and paste from those who do. Or perhaps just purposely make up stories and wrongly attribute it to give it a sense of credibility. Rumours come, and rumours go – and whilst fantasy booking is one thing, reporting a story that ends up having little basis in reality is the quickest way to gain ridicule and lose credibility.

If you’re looking for regular TV reviews, you’re in the wrong place – whilst we’ll cover most NXT Takeovers and WWE PPVs, instead we’ll be focusing on the independent scene, along with New Japan, along with some random stuff.

Why not follow us on Twitter or like us on Facebook? We’re always keen to hear your opinions, thoughts and feedback!

May 1992 was the first time that I ever saw a wrestling match, with an episode of WWF Superstars being the scene for a bout between Bret Hart and Skull von Krush. Since then, I’ve spent the next two decades plus watching a variety of companies from pretty much every continent. Except Antarctica. I don’t think there’s a promotion there… but someone will surely start a Penguin Wrestling Alliance down there one day, and live stream it…

I’ve gone on to write two books on wrestling: “Wrestling’s Sinking Ship” and “Gone Too Soon”. For further information, click on the “Books” link in the menu above, or just take a look on Amazon!
