    The link for WWE goes to the Youtube video of the Resident Evil “Mansion Basement” theme cover, and the link for AEW goes to the Netflix page for the series Vincenzo. These are from the previous week.

      What any of us is looking forward to really can’t be called weird, per se. It’s what you’re into – that’s not weird, it’s cool!
