As I type this, we're now caught up except for the most recent episode, which aired last Saturday.

MIKEY WIPEOUT joins MICK KARCH & DJ DRAPER for commentary
From Osceola, WI In our main event tonight, BLACK STALLION gets his shot at AWF HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION WILD CAT - if Stallion loses, DJ DRAPER must wear a dress. ALSO TONIGHT: RYAN CRUZ (with two teachers known only as MR. M & STEVE-O) vs. ARIYA DAVARI
I thought the Highlight Reel started off well enough. It looked like they'd let Chris Jericho be a heel and we were starting to see the HBK that *I* like to see. HBK's best days were as a heel and he can still antagonize a crowd like nobody else.
