So, I’ve been thinking about starting a website with a few different features recently; I want to start doing annotations of comic books, as well as tracking some wrestling statistics that I think are actually relevant in today’s wrestling landscape–I can’t promise I’ll be as regular as I’d like to be right now, but I’m going to give it a shot.

Additionally, I’ll maybe post about other random pop culture topics from time to time as well.  If anyone ends up reading this, I hope you enjoy!
