Just so you know, in-progress type threads are generally pretty frowned upon, especially starting multiples about the same show. That said, no, usually the surprises are a bit better than a fat guy with a bone.
Ah, Moondog Spot. I saw a local advertisment the other day for a wrestling school ran by Moondog Spot and Sir Mo! I know those are the guys I would want teaching me!!! (of course, I guess Moondog Spot can at least say he has a gig now)
I must agree. Is the opener the main-event? No. But it's still (usually) one of the more important matches on the card. The 2nd match on the card or the match in between main-events are the real death spots.
