Survivor Series and ITVR Update

So - the bad news is Vince McMahon answered yesterday that as of this year the WWE will be removing the Survivor Series PPV from the WWE lineup. The second-oldest PPV, only to Wrestlemania, was instituted to compete directly with the NWA's Starrcade; according to McMahon, the concept has outlived its novelty, which in a way is true. It is sad to lose 23 years of history - but I do understand from a numbers standpoint, as Series buys dropped more than any of the other three 'big four' original PPVs last year.

The good news is, contrary to what it may look like here, lol, ITVR is NOT going the same way. ;) We will be podcasting either slightly later tonight after the Olympic Opening Ceremonies, or else sometime during the day tomorrow. We have had an incredibly busy few weeks as substitute teaching has picked up for me, and I have had several interviews for more permanent working arrangements - having now found some permanent work, my life should settle into a more routine schedule, so going forward we should be able to remain a bit more regular. But in the meantime, thank you for putting up with our busy-ness, combined with a demanding and teething son in recent days - which has taken up lots of time, and led to the need for more sleep when he doesn't need attention. I have tried to remain consistent in blogging, but I know the podcast has slipped. But we'll be up within the next 24 hours, promise, and back to regular next week. Thanks again for the patience from all as these weeks come up.
