Wrestling News, Opinions, Etc., 12.14.04

Oh, and the stress of coming up for a lead for this thing strikes again, and it’s only two minutes to Raw as I type this. You see, if I’m stuck for a lead, I end up writing everything else first, then come back to this. It’s at that point when I usually troll the news sites to see if something interesting pops up, but when all you have is Scott Peterson being recommended for Ol’ Sparky, you get stuck. That’s when you just have to cut ties and get on with it.

I noticed on local radio in the final days before the show commercials advertised a special match “after the cameras stop rolling” between Triple H and Randy Orton. More on that later.
