Heat 07/29

Jul
30

Uh, yeah. The last Conway/Eugene match was better, if you must know.

Hope Victoria is okay and goes back to wrestling the odd SHIMMER wrestlers; I don’t think Torrie caused the injury, but she could’ve caused one with that headscissors. Amber O’Neil would’ve been a fine Torrie replacement here.

With the online Heats, I know how long ever segment is (TiVo wise, I always know when the show ends, but that’s it.) It’s become mentally tough to know you’re going to watch yet another Cade/Murdoch match or yet another Conway/Eugene match, and immediatly see that they’re stretching it out to 6-8 minutes. (That really makes me sound ADD-tastic, and I’m sure that these were partially because the Torrie match went short.)
