Welcome to the first night of Death Before Dishonor XII. The main event was a huge tag team match between The Briscoes vs The Young Bucks. Welcome to a Superkick Party!

Since this is going to be a party, we could use something to celebrate. My step-daughter, Teresa, turns 41 on Sunday. Sounds like a good thing to celebrate to me. Smile.

The Briscoes cut a profanity-laced rant towards the Young Bucks.

Roll the opening montage!

We are in Milwaukee for Death Before Dishonor. Kevin Kelly and Caprice Coleman looked at the night’s show.
