UGHHH I JUST HATE PLANTS SO MUCH

Hi wrestlefriends! It’s time for another week of swerves nobody saw coming except everyone kind of did! But first:

– Brandon and I will be at the Ring of Honor/NJPW show in New York tomorrow (May 17th), and Beyond Wrestling in Providence on Sunday. If you will be too, find us and say hello! That is if I haven’t died of wrestleswoons from being in the same place as Okada twice in one week (omg).

– Speaking of Brandon, we did another Slammentary for Clash of the Champions XXVIII. It was a super great show, except, you know, Hogan.

– Comment, like, tweet, tumbl, and share this report. Unless you think wrestling is for gay babies or whatever. You can probably refrain from joining in the conversation.

– Follow me on Twitter here, With Leather here, and UPROXX here. The second two for all of your sports and pop culture needs, the first for pictures of me fawning over puro dudes and and being way too excited to see my best friend. And some puns, probably.

This week on Impact: Maybe one of the worst matches in their history, and also Gunner! Sounds fun, right? Let’s find out!
