It’s all downhill from here.

Pre-show notes:

– Yep, I wrote an Impact report. I switched columns with Danielle Matheson this week and let her write up NXT, so be sure you go and read that. Our shared love of Renee Young is a strong one.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: If you like Impact Wrestling and are not familiar with me derisively name-dropping it in the Best And Worst Of Raw column, please know going in that Impact not a show I enjoy or watch regularly because it fills me with crazy rage and doesn’t have Daniel Bryan or Mark Henry around to bring me back down. Please excuse me if I incorrectly identify story points, move names or the like. I keep up with Impact via Danielle’s report, and even that makes me go FFFFFUUUUUU at my computer screen.

– Don’t be afraid to contribute to the discussion in our comments section, click the “like” button and share the column on your social media things. I am fully prepared for your “YOU’RE SO STUPID HERE’S WHY” comments, even if I get wanky-dismissive of them.

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

And … well, good luck, everybody, here’s Brandon Stroud’s one-and-probably-only Best And Worst Of TNA Impact Wrestling report for July 4, 2013.
