The Wednesday Night War Comes To Canada

For the first time ever, Canada is getting a live wrestling war! This would be much bigger news to me personally if we were living in 2001 instead of 2021, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t historically significant if you’re a Canadian wrestling fan.

That’s Quite The Commentary Team, Impact

Impact has made some interesting choices for its new announce team. I hope it works out. Impact gets more right nowadays than it gets wrong so I trust them more on this than I would have a few years ago, but still, interesting. If I’ve ever heard D’Lo Brown do commentary, I don’t remember it. …

He plans to use the results …

WWE Going From Two Groups Of Incoherent People To One

WWE CONSOLIDATES CREATIVE TEAM, BRUCE PRICHARD TO LEAD This makes sense. Both teams ultimately answered to Vince McMahon anyway, plus I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched nearly identical stories play themselves out at the same time on shows that are supposed to be separate and distinct. Why pay two sets of people …
