-Thanks to everyone who listened and called during last night's Prowrestling.net Live audio show and throughout our entire first season. We wrapped up the show's first season last night, but I will be recording Raw audio reviews primarily as member exclusive shows until we return with the second season of the live shows in January. The original plan was to do the live show for WrestleMania season only, but we extended it to the night after SummerSlam. We may sprinkle in the occasional live show as well on Monday nights. I had a lot of fun and a big thanks goes out to my various co-hosts including Chris Shore, Will Pruett, Jake Barnett, Zack Zimmerman, "MIA" Jeff Lutz, and Brian Fritz, as well as all the callers, chatters, and listeners.
