Hopefully we get a @RedJed road report for this.


And Lex Luger wandering down the aisle in a puffy shirt to get a closer look at the action.
As a follow up to this, last Friday I scored a "golden circle" ticket to this show, which means I'll be in the first three rows by the ring, and there's also lots of extra stuff with the ticket purchase.

I actually have to give it to Facade, because I can't think of any other career indy guy who never had a real major run in a notable company that still kinda draws.

Facade actually had a cameo a few weeks ago as a Wardlow victim security guard. He’s training his girlfriend Dani Mo. I’m not much for judging skill but she has a good look.

It looks like it left in 2018.

Can't wait for dramatic documentation of Year 10 or 11 of "Mahabali Shera has got potential to be a crossover star! I just know it dammit!"

It's crazy with all of the regime changes in Impact Wrestling that they're still (kind of) trying to make him work.

Who is Kidd Bandit and is he any good? Prestige is promoting the fuck out of him and he just is 100% douchechills based on appearance.

No idea. They're supernew. According to Cagematch, they had their first match last year. I think they're just popular amongst Woke Wrestling Twitter cause they're a nonbinary anime wrestler.

Kidd Bandit is great, especially for someone who has only been around for just about a year. They trained with the first class from Nightmare Factory, and has been on Dark a couple of times. I've seen them live a few times, with another one coming up on August 4. They deserve all the hype they've been getting on social media. They're also one of the most humble, incredible people I've met.

I've only seen Kidd Bandit on the DPW shows that Johnny from New Legacy Inc helps run, and they have "future star" written all over them. I just hope they don't lose that raw power when they mature as a worker, because being "polished" in 2022 means "I can mimic a Power Rangers battle" and not "I can put on a good match."

Fucking now they're threatening to inflict Effy on people. What a political nonstarter, booking the nonbinary person and the offensive stereotype. I might call the wrestling police.
