Pro Wrestling Events


The main goal of our events calendar is helping to sell tickets for as many events as we can find from around the world. Each event has ticket links, venue info, date and time. But some events have more and some have a lot more and are basically event previews. It depends on the info available at the time we post the event and if we are able to update that event, etc. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on pro wrestling events and events in general, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY Wrestling event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. Recently we’ve added Event Reminders for when certain shows will be airing. For example, if a certain event is taped, the reminder is for when it airs. We do our best to maintain around 200 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. Since we started doing this in late 2018, we have posted over 3,000 events. We started with US & Canadian wrestling promotions but have recently been adding more from around the world. Also we have recently added different types entertainment events. Some days have one to three events and some have over twenty on the same day, so you may have to click the link at the bottom to see more events on a certain day. Also we recently made it possible for anyone to comment on these event pages, as well as our News. If you’re a fan who went to any of these events, feel free to leave a comment about it. * XFL announces partnership with DraftKings Discusspw.com News *
