Thank fuck for the abject fickleness of modern technology eh. Cause without the hard camera at PROGRESS – Chapter 13 failing, we wouldn’t have been given the gift of seeing the show for fuck all. It says a lot about the dedication to the fanbase that the owners have that they deemed this unfit to charge any money for, cause let me let ye in on a wee secret troops. They absolutely could have charged money for this. Hard camera or not, this is easily one of the most complete wrestling shows I’ve seen all year. To the point that if I had run it, and all I had from it was a few blurry polaroids and a tape recording of Rampage Brown screaming “WRESTLING!” into a tin can, I’d charge a fee for folk just to have the privilege of being exposed to that. If you like indie promotions with a commitment to storytelling and building its own stars as opposed to relying on imports to shift tickets…PROGRESS has all of those things.
Aye I’m cheating a bit, so whit. Wanna fight abahd it? I cannae be arsed writing a MITB preview AND something else for the Daily Thing, so I figured we’d kill 2 birds wae the one stane and combine the two. I’ve still no reviewed RAW yet either. Fuckin disgrace man. In my defence….I don’t really have a defence, so I’ll shut the fuck up and write this MITB Preview.
So Payback eh. In the unfortunate event that you’ve gone deaf sometime in the past 3 or 4 weeks, the name of this PPV might have escaped you, so that’s why I just told you. Also put it in the title, cause I’m neat, helpful and rarely (often) late. Its called Payback. Everyone says it all the time. Even JTG says it to everyone who comes to his autograph signings and asks him what its like having Virgil as a dad. So listen, we’re writing in plain english and we’re writing some previews baby. Because of the limitations that plain English places upon me patter wise, I will be clicking in and out of a Dusty Rhodes impression throughout this article, and if you’re not down with that…I got two words for ya! That’s unfortunate.
