I did get a chance to watch the Glory Pro DVD.  Here are my new ratings, as some of the matches were better on DVD than live.


Paco Gonzalez b Kobe Durst (***3/4)...Ethan Page b Danny Adams (**) Shigehiro Irie b Curt Stallion (***3/4)..Jason Kincaid b Everett Connors (***¾), Myron Reed won six-way over Davey Vega, Gary Jay, Mat Fitchett, Jason Roberts and Space Monkey (***¾)...Brandon Espinosa b Sean Orleans (*),..Jake Something b Shane Sabre (***1/4)...Matt Riddle b Michael Elgin  (***1/2)...Jason Kincaid won four-way over Paco Gonzalez, Shigehiro Irie and Ethan Page (****) to become first champion...


I never watched anything twice, so I am willing to sell my copy of the DVD for $20. I will ship it to you for free!! That is only about $3 less than smartmark, but it is cheaper. I have only ONE copy, so send me an email at brian_tramel@yahoo.com to purchase it.

It’s Tuesday and time for Shooting the Shiznit.  Brian Tramel is joined by Jeff Bowdren the author of Breaking Kayfabe:  Dinner with Legends of Wrestling.  They talk about the book and various stories behind the making of the book.  Why did Jeff not transcribe the Mick Foley interview?  At the very end Jeff shares the famous “Bull Nakano” story.  Please take note that the podcast went past the 30 minute limit and just stops at the end.  The listener does not miss anything, but maybe them actually not able to say, “see you next week.”
