Each and every year, since the demise of the NWA’s “Jim Crocket Promotions,” Adam Leavelle has devoted his time looking for what he calls “Wrestling Done Right.” Along the way he’s dubbed a few companies just that. Companies like Ring of Honor, Major League Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and one of the several independent wrestling companies Adam worked for, Legacy Wrestling. Sadly, Legacy went out of business, and the other companies that had that mantle bestowed upon them, couldn’t stay on that track completely. As such, while Adam gave his support to those companies, he also still proudly embraced “The Wrestling Snob” moniker because no one company would devote itself fully to “Wrestling Done Right.” For all the “Foundations” out there, all the Gresham’s, Hammerstone’s, and Jay White’s, there were clowns (sometimes literally), no selling Luchadores, and comedy “acts’ that promoters just had to insert onto their shows in the name of wrestling being for “everybody.”
Around five years ago, sometime in 2017, Adam discovered the historical promotion, still doing shows in Japan, Pro Wrestling Noah. For some time “The Wrestling Snob” found great relief, and encouragement in Noah. The only problem was that finding their shows was difficult. Often, when you could find them, they would be weeks, or sometimes even months old. Even then, you couldn’t find all of their shows, only some of the bigger shows here and there. Frustrated, Adam gave up, and just continued to watch what he could, often fast forwarding way too much. Finally, in 2021, Adam discovered that “Wrestle Universe” carried nearly every Pro Wrestling Noah show, and what they didn’t carry, the Japanese television station, ABEMA carried. Both Wrestle Universe, and ABEMA have subscription models that would allow Adam to watch every single Pro Wrestling Noah show!
After a few months of getting back onboard “The Ark,” Adam knew this is what he’d been looking for since 1988, the year JCP sold to Ted Turner, and began going downhill. Yes, there were a few more good years left after Turner purchased JCP, but the writing was on the wall. Adam suspected that the day would shortly come where the cartoon like WWE would “win” the wrestling war in America, and he would have to search for “wrestling done right” amidst tons of wrestling “ga-ga.” While being “The Wrestling Snob” was fun on some level, it also got tiresome, and sometimes even depressing. Having absolutely loved professional wrestling since he was seven years old (1977) Adam feared it had died, and what many were calling “evolved” was actually a metamorphosis into something else entirely. This is where boarding the Ark, Pro Wrestling Noah, saved Adam, and the wrestling business, and lead “The Wrestling Snob” down the path of redemption.
No longer “angry” or “frustrated,” Adam has now found intelligent wrestling, he has found wrestling that makes sense, and is presented like a sport, matches that are showcased as “fights,” where the wrestlers look like they are struggling to perform offensive maneuvers, and registering pain, and anguish when being hit with, or put into said maneuvers. Most of all, Adam has found wrestling where the pace of the matches are as realistic as can be, in the world of pro wrestling, with said matches being presented as if the wrestlers in them are calculating, and thinking of strategy in what they are doing, and how they are responding to what their opponent is trying to do. While thinking of how best to describe this paragraph as shortly as possible, Adam came up with his bio name on Twitter, “Noah Noetic Nirvana.” You see, Pro Wrestling Noah is a company that can be analyzed, broken down, and discussed in an intelligent, rational way. Noetic is defined as “relating to mental activity or the intellect.” Pro Wrestling Noah is a professional wrestling company where the wrestlers, and as such the fans, can watch, breakdown, analyze, and discuss the in ring product, thus…..”Noetic.” Nirvana is, simply put, “heaven,” or, better yet, in regard to Pro Wrestling Noah, “a state of perfect happiness; an ideal or idyllic place.” So as of March, 2022, Adam Leavelle, the former “Wrestling Snob,” hangs up that mantle and embraces N(3), The Noah Noetic Nirvana…the ideal place where wrestling, and fans alike, apply their intellect to professional wrestling. To say this in a shorter, and even simpler term, Pro Wrestling Noah is 100% “Wrestling Done Right!” The search is over, come aboard the Ark and be saved from the deep, murky, scary, waters of professional wrestling everywhere else.
