Beyond are in Asbury Park, New Jersey with a slice of weekend wrestling action for you, and while this all looks pretty great, from the classic battle of jock vs. nerd that is Doane/Santell on up to Freshly Squeezed getting a chance to win his title back, well, there’s one match that visibly sucks me right in with its ultraviolence. Nick f’n Gage. Addy “Queen of the LEGO Deathmatch” Starr. DANGER!
