We could not have the last week of the year end well. We started out the year with a ten bell and we end it the same way. In total we lost 123 members of the wrestling industry, not just performers but office people and other behind the scenes personnel.

Sadly, it seems Jon couldn't be gone for a week before some "dirt sheet writer" had to post conspiracy theories about his death, forcing Amanda, his widow, who is already dealing with enough, to have to take the time to answer this fool instead of mourning the loss of her husband and the father of her children.

While Miro defected to AEW to become "The Best Man", his wife, still in WWE, still known as Lana, was spending her Monday nights getting put through the announce table so many times we looked into hiring The Count from Sesame Street to keep up with Nia Jax vendetta against the former "Ravishing Russian". Meanwhile, Roman Reigns was becoming "The Head Of The Table" and The Dark Order, originally considered a doomed to failure joke, added Brodie Lee as The Exalted One and brought the group into the upper echelon of AEW.
Katie, Steve and Sean will talk about these stories and more.
