A few weeks ago I started this feature as a “Daily Notes” page but that quickly became more work than it was worth, plus I didn’t really have enough material to maintain a daily presence. After much contemplation, I have decided to take the pressure off a little bit and do a “Weekly Notes” thread each week â€“ hopefully every Monday. The “Notes” will cover the past six days of wrestling news and plug some upcoming events around the pro-wrestling circuit. Of course, I will be tweaking this page, making up the rules as I go along. Thanks for reading!
