Foolish Commentary: Iím a little shocked that I didnít get a D- show tonight. With Lobo back and getting booked in a menace based angle, I figured that heíd be bringing multiple D level ratings to the show (and he did). Unfortunately, it looks like the title match didnít hit the mark quite the way I thought. Iím not really sure what the problem is right now as the talent is there, the gimmick ratings are above average are better and Iíve stopped getting warnings about Lee being a poor referee. Itís not that big of a deal though as once again we gain the full amount of promotional popularity with this show. At the same time, high match grades are one way to improve a wrestlerís popularity. If most of my roster isnít able to break into the D range, that means Iím going to have to bring in some wrestlers that can in the future.

In addition, guess who showed up to work hungover again? If you guessed Lee Harden, you were right. I fined him again and now he hates me. At this point I really donít care. My roster is filled with positive people, so locker room morale penalty isnít going to be a problem and heís on a three year contract, so itís not like his lack of wanting to re-sign with us is going to be a problem. That said, this solidifies that I will be replacing him with another, more sober ref down the line.

Finally, while Colt wasnít on the card, I did use him as a road agent for a match or two. I probably could have left him off completely, but decided not to risk the potential morale hit. Lee Hardenís issues I can handle. If the other wrestlers start to get annoyed, then the locker room could implode on itself since we are too poor to have any locker room leaders.
