Pre-show notes:

If you like the report and read it all the time, click the like button and drop a comment. My only real reward for doing this is knowing that you like it. Well, there’s also money, but that’s not specifically for this. What I’m saying is either leave me a comment and click like, or send me a bunch of money.

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

– Continued thanks to Casey/THESTINGER for helping me out with gifs and pictures. Be sure to visit his gifs Tumblr.

– Don’t forget to check out the Raw Deal at TJR Wrestling. John’s perspective is easier to enjoy than mine, and contains 100% fewer Excel Saga references.



– That’s right! We didn’t do a bad enough job the first time to get kicked out of The ND in Austin, TX, forever, so we’re doing it again … the Monday Night Raw Watch Party returns on the 21st of May with two (hopefully only two) hours of jokes, wrestling, wrestlers and dumb bullsh*t. It’s free, and attending instantly makes you one of my best friends. If you can get there, get there. RSVP now, so you can be cool enough to be on a page by yourself with me!

Until then, please enjoy the Best and Worst of Raw for May 7, 2012.
