  1. That old lady (I assume) who thought Tim Storm was Sylvester Stallone was great! Calling out Shane Douglas was another nice touch at the end, but I am loving these NWA videos more and more.

    Its crazy to think Impact has closed its door in Nashville, feels like it should be a bigger moment then I have been hearing about.
