The Best And Worst Of Impact Wrestling 4/18/13: Eager Young Lads And Rogues And Cads

04.19.13 4 years ago • 51 Comments

Well hello there, lovely readers. I know there are a lot of crazy things happening right now, so I appreciate you stopping by. If you’re reading this it means you’re somewhere, safe and sound, and I’m ever so thankful for that. With everything going on, it’s pretty tough to act like a dumb wrestling show is important, least of all try to be funny about it, but I think we could all do with a bit of levity and I will try my very best. A few things before we dive into another episode:

– There are only 8 days left in the Meet Me There IndieGoGo drive. Trust me, this is something you’ll want to be a part of. If you like horror movies, Brandon, Jill Thompson, and making dreams reality, then pledge some money. It’s been scientifically proven that making a donation will make you a cool cat and a With Leather friend forever, so, you know, do it.

– This week at The Mandible Claw, Chris Sims and Leonard F. Chikarason guested on the podcast. If you like Chikara you will definitely want to listen to this one. It’s been scientifically proven that listening to the Mandible Claw podcast will make you the bee’s knees and a Danielle friend forever, so, you know, do that too.

– Thanks to the internet we can all be friends forever, so go ahead and follow me on Twitter here. Follow With Leather here, and UPROXX here, then we can all be the best of friends. Friendship means caring, and caring means sharing, so spread this around on Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, Reddit, Pinterest, Google+, Vine, Tout, Myspace, Livejournal, Deadjournal, and maybe that forum board you don’t tell people you’re still a part of in 2013. Don’t worry, we’re friends now. We’ll keep it between us.

This week on Impact: We’re still in Corpus Christi and AJ Styles still hasn’t showered, but Christy Hemme changed her dress so it must be a new episode. /creeper slow-pan to Impact report

Worst: This week

I don’t usually like to touch on non-kayfabe, non-wrestling related things, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the crazy, sad, horrible events of this week. The bombings in Boston, the explosion in West, Texas, and then even more violence in the Boston area last night. Forget about the politics and media frenzy today, and focus on love. Be safe. Be well. Hug your family. Call a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while. Do things that make you happy. Do something nice for someone else. Most importantly, remember that hope and compassion will always be stronger than malevolence, and no matter what is going on in the world, you’ll find peace in the cultivation of both.

Worst, but my giggles say it’s secretly a best: Garrett Bischoff, what on earth is that on your face?

Worst: Kurt Angle’s singlet
