Big night tonight with WWE Raw already promising to be noteworthy with indications that Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Daniel Bryan will all be back on the air. We’ll be looking for your thoughts and opinions of how the show is covered tonight from the various websites. Send your thoughts to Les@sheetsandwich.com.
We have the second part of our new column Deep Insider is up on the site. This is the column where I document and report on my experiences while I continue my sojourn into the unsavory, questionable realm of Elite Membership at PWInsider.com.
The second edition of our podcast, Talking Sheet is available on the site. In this episode, Hugh Little and I compare Wade Keller’s Verne Gagne obituary in the Torch to Dave Meltzer’s Gagne biography in the Wrestling Observer. Hugh gives his thoughts on Torch coverage of Extreme Rules, compared to Meltzer, while I ponder what that lead story in Figure Four Weekly was about this week.
Then we take a Rear View look at the Wrestling Observer Newsletter from January of 1987 in what some listeners are already calling the spiritual successor to the now defunct OBSERVOR segments that Todd Martin used to do on his old F4Daily shows with Bryan Alvarez.
We also have a review of the PW Torch website on the site today, rating all the features and benefits of membership compared to other news sites.
