Pre-show notes:

Comments, shares, likes, and anything else that gets people to come here are appreciated, as always. The more you show this to your friends and fellow wrestling fans, the more coverage we can do on the site. Share it enough, and hell, we’ll just have to split off into a dedicated wrestling blog. Wink wink, nudge nudge, and so on.

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

– Be sure you’re reading With Leather’s This Week In Horrible-Looking People every Monday. This week I talked about embarrassing candid 8x10s, and you get to see Andre the Giant dressed like Zach Braff. Good times.

– In horrible wrestling news, WWE decided to let our good friend Derrick Bateman go. These are the guys who decided to write THIS episode of Raw, in case you need a reference for how good their decision-making skills are. Anyway, if you’re a wrestling promoter type who reads this column and wants to book an awesome wrestler who is hilarious and was also on Internet TV for a long time, contact him for bookings here.

– This week’s report is up a little early, because I’ll be spending the majority of the day in a church with video cameras and Goldust. If you aren’t following Meet Me There on Facebook, do that. It’s going to be special.

Please click through to enjoy the Best and Worst of WWE Raw for May 20, 2013. Things get a little sick at the end.
