It has been almost two months since I last contributed. Wake-Up Call is back. My schedule is getting busier recently, so I am looking to get back into the swing of writing for you all, at least, on a semi-regular basis. It might be a bit erratic from me. One way I would like to be able to contribute more is by releasing work under this new format, whereby I will address various topics in short form—sometimes following a theme, sometimes not so much. The common theme will be to address more topics that are not being covered as much.
Welcome everybody to the season finale of Versus. The first season was based around a WWE vs TNA feud. Throughout the six previous articles, the readers have read my analysis and voted on who they think would win in interpromotional matches. This season finale does two things: 1) Reveals how you voted and 2) Gives a scenario of how I would book said dream matches.
TNA Wrestling officials have been informed that Kurt Angle has a torn MCL in his knee as a result of the attack by Ethan Carter III on Thursday on IMPACT.

UPDATE: Ethan Carter III posted the following statement on his Twitter account, regarding Kurt Angle's injury and his status for tonight's Lockdown pay-per-view:
