The Best and Worst of Impact Wrestling 10/10/13: Every Dream Match A Heartache


Hey guys! This was a rollercoaster of a show, but before we get to it, we’ve got to stand in line and cover the pre-show notes.

-This time next week I will be in Austin, TX for wrestling and BFF Forever time with Brandon. We’ll be at the NWA/NJPW-affiliate shows in Houston and San Antonio to see Jushin Liger, Gedo, and marvel at the manicured eyebrows of Rob Conway. Sunday we’ll be at Anarchy Championship Wrestling in Austin. If you’re going to be at any of those things (or were on the fence about going), come, say hello, and watch me finally get to smush Evan Gelistico’s face with all of the love I have in my heart. We’ve got some fun stuff planned for the report next week, so get excited now, and then forget about it by about Tuesday, and then get excited again when it happens!

-Gif credit to the stunningly awesome Mobsy/Lobster Mobster/Jessica. Follow her and love her and shower her with praise.

-Dear friend (and guy I mention a lot) Chris Sims and his cohost Matt Wilson sat down to talk with Christopher Daniels on War Rocket Ajax last week. Listen to that here.

-Follow me on Twitter here, With Leather here, and UPROXX here. We love follows and comments (well, some comments) and likes and shares and tumbls like I love Joseph Park. Well, maybe not that much, but we still love them a whole bunch, so make them happen!

This week on Impact: There’s good, there’s bad, and there are ugly velvet wrestling trunks we should probably just ignore.
