Pre-show notes:

– 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.

– Here’s a link to this week’s show on Hulu Plus. If you’re too cheap to drop $8 a month to watch the best wrestling TV show in the world, at least find it on Daily Motion or whatever. NXT will make you feel better about the sport and the business, and will give you tons of new, favorite wrestlers who get you called a “smarmy douche” by people putting zero effort into their fandom.

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

– Somewhat important note: I mention it a few times in the column, but I went to Full Sail last week to attend the most recent set of NXT tapings. They start airing two weeks from yesterday, I think. That means I’m alternately SUPER EXCITED to tell you what happened, and cautious to mention it at all, because I don’t want to spoil it for you. So … spoilers for THIS episode, obviously, but I’ll remain vague about everything else. Except Tyler Breeze, because your ass is gonna LOVE Tyler Breeze.
