Also, many of these matches are proceeded by the full promos that went along with them when they originally aired, so that’s cool too. Read the rest of this entry

No justice, right, WCW fans? Read the rest of this entry

Paul Heyman is in a locker room yelling, notifying us that Masato Tanaka didn’t make it in from Japan and Jerry Lynn is still recovering from an injury, so you can scratch them off the card.
