Pre-show notes:

– Please share the column. Don’t make me beg. If you don’t, I’m giving up Raw cold turkey and writing recaps of old World Class episodes. I hope you guys love jokes about Jimmy Garvin!

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

– My first show as a creative type at a wrestling promotion is on May 25, so if you wanna see one of my dreams come true, be there for it. Inspire Pro Wrestling: In Their Blood, featuring the best women’s wrestling in this part of the country, organized by a guy who cannot stop complaining about women’s wrestling. Also, a burlap sack monster from the 1930s is fighting an albino gorilla. Spread the word.

– If you’re in Austin, be sure to check out the in-town premiere of MEET ME THERE at the Alamo Drafthouse Lakeline on May 20. Goldust was gonna be there, but he has to tape a Smackdown. So if he wrestles Fandango or whatever, hate it even more.
