With school and my interest in the product not what it was a few months ago, it’s harder to bring myself to devote 2 hours to writing every single week. This week, I was actually even sort of contemplating going onRead More
Around 9 p.m. ET Monday night, I started penning this very edition of The Commentary. It was to focus on CM Punk’s impact off the bat at the show’s start, interrupting the legendary Bret Hart in Montreal and entering to boos.
