Powell’s POV: I hope MLW didn’t just spoil the result of the Alex Hammerstone vs. Jacob Fatu match that took place over the weekend before it’s shown on television. Anyway, we are looking for reports from all MLW tapings. If you are going and want to help, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
