Pre-show notes:

Hey, click that “like” button. Like it for the show, like it for the writing, like it because we’re friends in real life, whatever, I don’t care. But people need to know about this show, and your quarter-second contribution puts it in front of strangers’ eyes, and that’s appreciated.

– Here’s a link to this week’s show on Hulu Plus. If you don’t watch this episode, you are ridiculous.

– Follow us on Twitter @withleather, follow me personally @MrBrandonStroud and like us on Facebook.

– This is the final episode from the set of tapings I attended live. I’m already going through NXT taping withdrawals, because the next set tapes tonight and I’m several states away. NXT types, if you wanna fly me down to do some more live coverage I … you know, I wouldn’t tell you no.
