– Thanks to everyone for making this the most bought WSU iPPV.
– Injury Report: Mercedes Martinez was banged up and had a stinger that has since went away….Jana of the Soul Sisters had a concussion and was pulled from the rumble. She will not miss any ring time. Jana has been on every single WSU show since day one… Brittney Savage was also banged up after her match…. Both Alicia/Havok had minor cuts/bruises and were sore after their encounter. No one is expected to miss any ring time.
– Annie Social is back with WSU full time and is on every show forward, as long as it does not conflict with her schedule in Japan.
– Roxxie Cotton was supposed to return to WSU last night but had car trouble. She returns 8/6.
– WSU was thrilled with the debut of Allison Danger. You can not write emotional moments & Danger sent off Rogers as classy as possible.
– WSU thanks Cindy Rogers for her loyal work here for 4+ years. WSU was honored Cindy chose to have her last match here. Cindy Rogers had a test run on commentary for the iPPV during the Rumble. Lots of tears were flowing after Cindy’s match. Martinez & Amy Lee put together Cindy’s post show segment, which will be released on the DVD as an exclusive.
– Jon Harder, who started on 4/2 with the company, and called the iPPV, is WSU’s full time commentator.
– After debuting in Reina in Japan, Latasha returns on 8/6.
– WSU apologizes for the late start time. Our original GoFightLive producer was in a car accident 2 weeks ago and we had a new staff. There were problems with one camera being out and another camera being black/white. WSU didn’t want to go on the air with a crappy feed, so we took the 20 minutes to make sure things would flow smooth. Since WSU didn’t want the fans live to just sit there, WSU asked Amy Lee & Rick Cataldo to go out there and do improv comedy to warm up the crowd while fixing the technical issues. We promise to make sure this does not happen again.
– WSU thanks Jamilia Craft for everything and wishes her the best of luck in Reina in Japan. The door is always open once Jamilia returns to the United States, as Jamilia has a one year deal, but who knows if it will be extended.
– Something major that will affect the course of WSU will take place on 8/6…..
– WSU has signed a deal to release compilation DVDs in national chain stores. We are hoping to have our first DVD “UNCENSORED Volume 1” released in stores this Fall. The DVD cover is already on our Facebook page. Stay tuned for more.
– WSU will return on 8/6… a press release is expected soon. It will be a double DVD taping and not taped for iPPV. WSU wants to spread out the iPPVs to make them feel more special and wants to use the double DVD tapings to help build up future iPPVs. WSU has renewed for a second year with Inasectv.com and wants to use the show to help push the iPPVs.
– WSU has several autographed posters from everyone on the event for sale for $10. To check availability/order, please email BULLSMC@aol.com
