no surrender

Hey ho howdy, folks. Another week, another Impact report. It’s just a job, but I do it for YOU PEOPLE. If I’ve learned anything in THIS BUSINESS, it’s that AJ Styles should maybe probably not be my mentor. A few things:

-This week over at The Mandible Claw, Brandon laid out his WWE/Chikara crossover theory before we read some anatomically incorrect wrestling smut, Drew Cordeiro joined me to talk Americanrana and this Sunday’s Point of No Return, and the ever so Handsome Dan Barry did the same. He also talked about wrestling at Riker’s Island which is a must listen because seriously…Riker’s Island.

-If you’re anywhere in the New England area/within five hours away from Rhode Island, you have to get out to Beyond Wrestling’s Point of No Return on Sunday. Trust me. I can’t make it, but I can live vicariously through YOU PEOPLE.

-I myself will be at Smash Wrestling’s CAN-USA Classic in Etobicoke to cheer on the lovely Veda Scott. If you’re in the Toronto area and haven’t decided to road trip to Rhode Island, come out, say hi, and see some women’s rasslin’. LuFisto will be there, hopefully being super careful so I don’t have to see her destroy her knee again like at WrestleCon.

-Follow me on Twitter here, With Leather here, and UPROXX here. Twitter friends forever, or at least until some other form of social media becomes the cool new thing. Then we can be friends there, k?

This week on Impact: It’s the Bound for Glory series finale! Who will win? The guy who wants it more than anyone else, the guy who wants it more than anyone else, the guy who wants it more than anyone else, or Magnus?
