The Wrstling Podcast #64 - Favourite Matches of 2021

The Wrstling Podcast #64 - Favourite Matches of 2021

December 31, 2021

Hot on the heels of The Happy List comes our OTHER end-of-year wrap-up, where Liam and Gareth put forward their favourite matches of 2021. 

Away from the standard ‘best matches of the year’ (what does that even mean, anyway?) criteria, the boys revisit the contests that most spoke to them over the past twelve months. These range from critically acclaimed star-fests to indie sprints that may have flown under the radar. 

With entries from three separate continents, this year’s list has been bumped from 10 to 15 picks, allowing for more debate, headaches and most importantly, fun. 

Come hang with the boys as they recap 15 of their favourite matches from the year 2021.

It’s part two of our MCW vs PWA double header, and The Wrstling Podcast is pleased welcome ‘The Loose Ledge’ Adam Brooks back to the podcast!

The boys last spoke with Brooksy back at the beginning of 2021, catching up on all things Australia, Melbourne City Wrestling and Ring of Honor. 

Though still MCW Heavyweight Champion, lots has changed for Adam in the ensuing months, so there’s plenty to get into, not least his plans for wrestling internationally and the huge Worlds Collide event with PWA: Black Label. 

It’s a really fun conversation, so join us as we get amongst it with one of Australia's finest.
