Welcome back to the Sermon on the Mat, your weekly one-stop shop for news from the wider world of wrestling beyond the big cable TV monoliths that get all the coverage.

We’re back to the all free matches model this week, folks— COVID plus the normal indie wrestling holiday slump means things are real light. I’ll take this moment, however, to remind you that IWTV has a constant stream of premieres, both shows that are new to the service and new content that’s been taped during the pandemic. My coverage model here is geared towards live shows and those kind of slip through the crack, so make sure to poke around and check ‘em out!
