What to have a look at/skip
This night time’s “what to have a look at/skip” is dropped at you by the use of the Uppercut Swingphony in honor (pun intended) of Claudio Castagnoli’s massive win. True story — my partner once took a Claudio sign to a WWE PPV where we had ringside seats finding out “Swiss Money, Yeah Yeah.” Certain that doubles as a Cryme Tyme shaggy dog story, which should tell you how long ago it used to be as soon as (RIP Shad Gaspard). Her sign made television such a large amount of events WWE protection came over and recommended her not to grasp it up another time for the rest of the show. She used to be as soon as beautiful salty about that, alternatively in any case of the ones years she’s finally been showed correct — Castagnoli is surely Swiss Money, yeah yeah.
