WWE and TNA continue to put on quality shows each week. Many argue that the wrestling business isn't as entertaining or as beloved by the mainstream as it was ten years ago, but we're just happy to have wrestling on TV.
Goldust is back on WWE television. Although relegated to a comedy role, Virgil Runnels continues to play the Goldust character well and can still get it done in the ring. Besides, limiting the role to short cameos each week decreases the possibility of the character saying or doing something offensive to our LGBT friends.
Kane is now the crazy stalker of Kelly Kelly. Just like Goldust, Glen Jacobs continues to play his role to a T, and Kelly's acting abilities have somewhat improved along with her in-ring skills. We're curious who her mystery man will eventually be too.
Another Royal Rumble match. Each year without failure, the Royal Rumble continues to be an entertaining WWE staple with an original twist to the concept or a surprise entrant or two. We look forward to the '09 installment.
TNA's continued expansion. Total Nonstop Action continues to grow with a UK tour coming in the new year. Competition is good, and wrestlers having more places to work in tough ecconomic times is even better.
You readers. We can't thank you enough for your continued support. It is through your word of mouth and free promotion that we are able to do what we do. It is because of you that we've achieved so much success this past year, interviewing the likes of Orlando Jordan, Lanny Poffo and RD Reynolds. We have more surprises coming in 2009. Keep on reading!

Bradley started wrestling in 1991. After much success on the East Coast he signed a contract with the then-WWF in 1998 and was assigned to their developmental territory Power Pro Wrestling in Memphis, Tennessee. Bradley feuded with a rookie Kurt Angle over the Power Pro Wrestling championship, which was voted "Underrated Feud of the Year" by Pro Wrestling Illustrated. Bradley became the first wrestler to defeat Angle. In 1999, he won the third annual ECWA Super 8 tournament, defeating current TNA wrestler Christopher "Curry Man" Daniels. Bradley was ultimately released by WWE in the summer of 2002 during a talent purge. Following his release from WWE Bradley returned to the New England area and opened his wrestling school, which was shut down within the past six months. Bradley dealt with personal issues over the years and was one of the former talents who took up WWE's offer of getting help within the past year.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
