I miss WCW

I’m behind I told David I’d review weeks ago and it slipped my mind! Sitting Ringside hits my nostalgic feelings and is now my go to wrestling podcast. It’s a favorite and the only thing better would be David sitting with our boys Malenko and Jericho and doing a Smackdown Six tribute. I miss WCW. It was a great time of my life and the talent was more accessible than now. Thanks David for bringing back great memories!
