Pre-show notes:

– If the column is all over the place this week, I apologize. I just got back from the Northeast, where I caught Saturday’s New Japan/Ring of Honor show and Sunday’s two Beyond Wrestling shows. I have seen so many kickouts and slapped thighs and I really need to lie down for a few days.

– Share the column. It helps a lot, and it only takes a second. I can’t beg you to subscribe to me, so this is as bad as it gets.

Inspire Pro Wrestling: In Their Blood is this Sunday in Austin, so if you’re anywhere around the area, come check it out. If you like my wrestling opinions, see what I can do when people put me in charge of an actual wrestling promotion. Get in on the ground floor before I start introducing surfing vampires and ghost characters.
