I only care about the sleaze now

Keep at it. Most of the good indie promotions in the States sell DVDs online, and they're not too expensive either, so it's pretty easy nowadays to sample stuff you might only have read about on the news sites and blogs.

Of course I shouldn't be one to tell you this, because I've never even seen Ring of Honor. But I have seen some Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (shitty camerawork but good action) and a smattering of Chikara (some spot-monkey nonsense but a lot of good stuff, and a healthy level of zaniness). Under-the-radar DVDs of Japanese promotions are also available very cheap from the right places.

I'm pretty bored with the WWE and TNA myself, I only keep watching out of some false sense of loyalty or something. I rarely watch Raw anymore, and when I do it's on fast-forward 'cause of all the rest holds and looky-likeys with no personality.

Oh, and the only other thing that keeps my interest alive is Power Slam magazine. They share my exasperation with the state of the business but without most of the smarky bullshit that pollutes the IWC.

that face-scrapping thing (2:19) was horrible-looking. an accident, i'd guess? ugh. . .

kind of a saddo article about the indie wrestling circuit in this week's miami-dade new times magazine.

Ultramantis Black has some of my favorite character stuff in Chikara. Really gives me gimmicky hope.
