Well, it’s the (even more) calm before the storm of Thanksgiving, so this should probably be another slow, meme-free week of news.
(Scott here! When this was written I was so tired that there was literally points where I was falling asleep while typing, so apologies in advance if there’s any weirdness in the grammar or sentence structure that I missed.)
Getting closer to Thanksgiving! While you’re waiting, check out Scott’s Podcast of Doom #2: http://placetobenation.com/scott-keiths-podcast-of-doom-2/ Don’t worry, I won’t start without you.
A new era begins in the Observer! TWO COLUMNS PER PAGE!
Also a couple of title changes, but TWO COLUMNS!
With all the stuff going on in the US, Dave hasn’t even really talked about the tag team tournaments in Japan! Well, time to fix that grievous error.
And it’s ANOTHER sad note to open an Observer this week. 87 was kind of a harsh year.
Dave had only HEARD about the Island Death Match last time. Now he’s seen it.
Bye bye, slow news cycle. It’s time for the Megapowers and the start of one of the biggest fights in the history of North American wrestling. The tricks were dirtier, and the memes were danker! Of course you know, this means war…
There are moments when you can pinpoint exactly when a major promotion started to go completely off the rails. This week is one of them.
The news remains slow until next issue, when a couple of major bombshells hit, but for now there’s tons of news ITEMS at least…
Dave Meltzer is PISSED OFF. He’s mad as hell, although chances are good that he’ll continue to take it.
And here we had gone for almost two months without a death.
It’s Paul Boesch’s farewell show in Houston this week, plus a whole lot of NWA v. WWF analysis from Dave. Must be yet another slow news week.
