Share the column! These get about 1/4 the traffic of a regular Raw report. That makes sense because that one’s current and happening live and this one isn’t, but yo, this one’s got dogs in costumes.

This Week’s Pepe Costume: Birthday Hat

The best part is that he’s not just wearing a birthday hat; he’s wearing a tiny hat with the rest of it as a shirt, suggesting that he’s popping out of a regular-sized person’s birthday hat. That’s a good chihuahua costume. I can see why Mongo saved it for this deep in the run.

Best: A Night Of Shockingly Good Wrestling

Not that you expect the wrestling on Nitro to be terrible (especially not when the cruiserweights show up and become a real thing), but this episode full of matches that look terrible on paper but end up being really good.
