Heat 08/19

Aug
23

Feely reminded me (without knowing it) that I haven’t updated the links on the left side of the page.

Heat 08/19

I will SO not miss Matt Striker. Good thing they thought to blow off the Conway/Striker angle. Rob Conway as a firey babyface actually seems like it’d be a fun idea for 4-5 weeks and then I’d get bored seeing him every 3 out of 4 shows.

Also, if you missed it last week, CRZ was the guest of the week on Joe Versus The World. Go read his ECW recap.
