OVERALL: "Not a good show, then again who Iam I to say Lance Storm? Bryan Alvarez? Dave Meltzer? Who knows anyways a good promo by The Shiek was awesome.
BTW the jobbers name was Sunny Street sounds like someone from Seasme Street worse ring name ever.. BTw thoughout the show I was thinking who did Verne stiff with
regarding pay I think Verne stiffed these people on todays show; Lee Marshall, The Samoan Swat Team, Michael Hayes, Steve Cox, Buddy Roberts, The Top guns, Manny Fernandez, Sunny Street, DDP and Badd Company!
Anyways everyone be safe be cool have a good weekend! - Joe"
