It was a night of Champions…Global Force Champions, that is.

We opened with a review of the Suspension of Jeremy Borash. We then saw the debut of Matt Sydal. Other highlights from last week’s show also aired.

We want to sned out our heartiest congratulations to our dear friend, Luster the Legend (of Reno SCUM). Luster just welcomed the newest member to his family, a baby boy named Mason, on Thursday morning. Mother and son are doing well and the SCUMNation has another member. OI!
