Hey, you guys can come visit me in Bowmanville when the GO Train arrives in 2025.


Raw was garbage…but SmackDown has been steadily the better show…even tho the reports are that SmackDown are heavily rewritten by Vince McMahon the day of…weird how that happens.

I’m trying to find the Gerals Brisco story though I can only find old links.


With all these last minute rewrites, why do they employ a staff of writers? Wouldn’t it be easier to get some older talent, that is already on the payroll and familiar with the business, to book these shows? I know, crazy idea
