A packed update this time, so I'll skip most of my notes. Just a couple this time. First, I got a great response to my interview with Big Time Wrestling Promoter Wade Goodman. They have a very interesting idea for a promotion, and Wade Goodman was kind enough to sit down with me for an interview. Check it out at the promoter section of Murphy's Archives.
December should be a big month in Philly, with CZW running their fourth annual "Cage of Death" show on December 14, and of course on December 28 3PW and ROH are both running shows. I'll be in town for the weekend if all goes according to plans, so hopefully they'll be able to work something out where they can run a double-header rather than going right up against each other.
