Psst, hey, guess what, you're probably bored at work right now. You know what you could do to pass the time? Check out some of these links from cool-ass people who write stuff about wrestling and junk. Read them, love them, and by god, share their work further, alright? Alright!

The second night of the G1 USA Special was better than the first, and I had your rundown right here. [The Wrestling Blog]

Elliot actually went to the damn thing, and he had his thoughts about the live experience of both nights right here as well. [The Wrestling Blog]

Kyle Kensing also went to the live shows, and he also had some perspective about it, mainly that it was a milestone weekend for wrestling and then some. [The Open Man]

Also, if you're considering giving money to The Wrestling Blog, I advise otherwise as I do this out of love/as a hobby/not for my primary source of income. However, I will ask that you support some other great people who DO write/produce content to get by. This week's honor roll:

Trevor Strunk (No Cartridge/Video Drone)
Jetta Rae (Fry Havoc)
Elle Collins (SyFy Wire)
