I am streaming it onto my TV via a PS3 from WWNLive.com and it looks really good.
Robby Mireno welcomed everyone to the show. The crowd was razzing him for not being Joey Styles, so Mireno crapped on them back. Joel Gertner came out and said that there are a lot of other things the fans could have spent their money on any other type of entertainment but they were here and he thanked them on behalf of everyone in the back. Gertner said he was trying to get write-in votes for President in recent months and said that had he been elected, he would have changed the national anthem, singing an X-rated version of "My Country Tis of Thee."
Ronnie Lang's Atlas Security is in the house.
