Like always…

Don’t forget folks, no matter what type of wrestling you love, no matter how depressed you feel about the state of WWE, AEW, Impact, ROH or any other “large scale” professional wrestling, there is something for you. There is a professional wrestling product that can hit you in the right place and make you love wrestling like you thought you could never love it again. It’s there, I promise. You just have to reach out and find it, and that, my friends, is the subject of the Sermon on the Mat.
