Apologies for the late column this week, but I was on vacation in Jamaica. After a 12-hour day of traveling, the first thing I did was fire up the old computer and watch a streaming version of WWE Money in the Bank. As tired as I was, I was quickly awakened by the high-energy Money […]

Posted: July 4, 2013 at 9:33 am   /   Local, Professional Wrestling

This week’s Monday Night Raw again was middle of the road, as an entire show goes. There was some good and some bad, much like last week.
