We made it to the weekend! Here’s the evening news:
- Your ALL IN announcers/interviewers/etc. have been announced: Alicia Atout, Don Callis, Sean Mooney, Ian Riccaboni, Excalibur, Bobby Cruise, and Justin Roberts. Dick Vitale, Tim McCarver, and Dr. Joyce Brothers were unavailable, I guess.
- Andrade Cien Almas vs. Sin Cara will be rematched on the Extreme Rules kickoff show.
- Names announced for the 2nd annual Mae Young Classic include Io Shirai (JPN), Kacy Catanzaro (USA), Jinny Couture (GBR), and Nicole Matthews (CAN).
- The G1 Climax press conference was held today. Tetsuya Naito fell asleep during the event because of course he did.
- Thanks to efforts of Mayoral Candidate Kane, Knox County held an actual Rusev Day this week. Wrestling is stupid and wonderful.
- New Japan and Ring of Honor will run MSG over WrestleMania weekend.
I will not be putting up the Saturday thread, as I’ll be doing some indy wrestling in Valley Lee, MD, on the southern peninsula. Before you ask, no, I’m not far enough along to be a wrestler, but they trust me to referee, so I should be doing that.
Enjoy the night!
