I thought this was a really cool video. It's always interesting to see all the future WWE dudes. It's also crazy to me that I have been following PWG since high school.

Out of all the wrestlers in history to choose from, why did Adam Pearce say, "Yes, I want to dress just like Justin Credible."?

Boy, I think it's about time I tell you the difference between a man and a woman. A woman isn't a woman unless she's pretty. And a man isn't a man unless he's ugly.

Or dudes who work for much larger companies than PWG with much more exposure are willing to put their work with other places at risk to work with a company like PWG. I don't know where anyone has gotten this story that PWG doesn't pay their wrestlers what they ask for.

I know he was a fairly big name on the indie scene before he went to WWE, but I'm really happy for Sami Callihan for what looks a pretty big boost to his career post-WWE.

Always loved that little guy.

Going to my first EVOLVE show tomorrow; it has some of my problems with Evolve with guys I like against guys I don't like or seemingly bad match ups but Riddle Strong should be fun at least.

Roderick Strong vs. Matt Riddle
Drew Galloway vs. Drew Gulak
Johnny Gargano vs. Cedric Alexander

You should get a ticket with a seat number when you arrive.

Also announced for AAW August:

This is definitely worth pointing out. Like, I don't know what Dalton Castle gets paid for working a PWG match vis-a-vis Ring of Honor or Chikara, but I know that at both the shows he's been to so far he loving cleaned up on t-shirts. And that's not even counting Pentagon selling out of his entire stock including like the 150 dollar masks before last year's BOLA weekend was even over.

first three rows are definitely numbered and assigned at bourbon street but I cant remember if 5th row is. it wouldnt be on your internet ticket though, theyll ask your name at the door and give you a real paper ticket that would have your seat number on it if there is one

edit: oh ok i see pinwiz answered yeah I think it will be assigned

PWG also has a deal with Highspots which probably cuts back on production costs for DVD's, where they make pretty solid money. Plus they probably get a small cut from the Highspots channel.

Also, I suspect Hero or Cobb is gonna win the whole shebangabang.
