The Best And Worst Of WWE NXT 7/3/13: C’est Vrai!

By: 07.05.13  •  41 Comments


Well hello there, (full) sailor! Don’t worry, you’re not in the wrong report. This week Brandon and I are doing a fun (I hope) little switcheroo. I get to write about people who were legitimately in Chikara without shoehorning it into the Impact column for no reason, and Brandon gets to marry Mark Harmon at the end. Or write about Impact. Whichever. A few things first:

– This week on The Mandible Claw Podcast, Brandon and I talk about the negative impact unfiltered social media can have on independent wrestling, ACW’s Queen of Queen’s tournament, the majesty of Evan Gelistico’s face, and things that are still fun if you’re not super into indie wrestling. Check it out!

– Last week my name was added to the storied list of Air Sex World Championship judges. The Toronto show may have been a bit of a bust, but the documentary is going to be rad. Donate here and help make it the best it can be! Real money for fake boning – the future is now!

– Before Brandon takes over the Best & Worst of TNA Impact for the week, be sure to get caught up on everything you missed here. The Main Event Mafia is back, and it’s just as horrible as you think it is!

– Be sure to follow me on Twitter here, With Leather here, and UPROXX here. You can wait until later today to follow Brandon.

This week on WWE NXT: Canadians! Run-ins! And the most beautiful bridge in pro wrestling! Note: there is a 0% chance it belongs to Mason Ryan.
