Pre-show notes:

– The With Spandex podcast experienced a few technical difficulties over the weekend, but we’re working through it. Expect that as soon as I grow a brain that isn’t 70 years old and figure out how computers work.

aj-lee-gif– As always, we’d appreciate it if you’d leave a comment on the report. You left almost 700 on the Open Discussion Thread last night, so I can’t bother you about it too much. If you don’t feel like commenting, click the “like” button up there or share us on Facebook or Google Plus or Pinterest or whatever the new thing is. Take a picture of the column and share it on Instagram, I don’t care.

– Follow us on Twitter @withleather, follow me personally @MrBrandonStroud and like us on Facebook.

– Gifs contained within are, as always, courtesy of Jerusalem at Punchsport Pagoda.

– Unrelated A.J. gif contributed by @ajB_real.

– I apologize for the relative lateness of today’s column. I had to change a tire, and things got weird.

Anyway, please to enjoy the Best and Worst of WWE Raw: Halloween H20 Edition for January 9, 2012.
