Top Wrestling shows taking place during WrestleMania 34 weekend

Let us now take a look at the top wrestling shows taking place later this weekend in New Orleans.


WWE’s WrestleMania weekend is by far the most interesting weekend for a Pro Wrestling fan and if you consider yourself to be a die-hard Pro Wrestling fan then you should definitely consider checking out some of the most standout Independent promotions who are running a show this weekend in New Orleans.

Some of the top Indy and Global promotions in the world have already landed in New Orleans in order to host a wrestling show this weekend and with the likes of PROGRESS Wrestling, Evolve Wrestling, Beyond Wrestling, Ring of Honor, and WWE in town, New Orleans, Louisiana is certainly the place to be.

As earlier noted, GCW’s Bloodsport show featuring a shoot style main event between Matt Riddle and current IWGP Intercontinental Champion Minoru Suzuki as they kicked off things in NOLA earlier today.

In addition, Riddle’s Bloodsport event also featured several other stars competing in top-level matches, including a hectic co-main event of the evening between Nick Gage and Timothy Thatcher.

Next up, we shifted gears to Evolve 102, which was main-evented by Matt Riddle (yet again) against current Evolve Champion Zack Sabre Jr., who was recently unsuccessful in capturing the IWGP Heavyweight Title. Below on the card, Walter and Timothy Thatcher (RINGKAMPF) squared off and defeated the team of Daisuke Sekimoto and Munenori Sawa. And elsewhere, WWN Champion Keith Lee went over Darby Allin and post-match Lee was challenged by FIP World Heavyweight Champion Austin Theory in a Title-vs-Title match. Current IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay also was victorious on the night as he picked up a huge win over AR Fox.

Finally, we shift our focus towards Beyond Wrestling: Lit Up, a card that mostly focused on intergender wrestling. As usual, Matt Riddle competed in yet another match as he defeated Deonna Purrazzo, however, Riddle was attacked from behind by former WWE superstar James Ellsworth.

Additionally, the show also featured Team PAWG (Jordynne Grace & LuFisto) going over EYFBO (Ortiz and Santana from Impact Wrestling), Tessa Blanchard over Maxwell Jacob Friedman, Mia Yim, and Wheeler YUTA by pinfall on MJF, Jessicka Havok over Jimmy Havoc, and Toni Storm over Timothy Thatcher in the main event.
