Note for Observer newsletter subscribers & readers

Due to the volume of shows and news, this week's Observer newsletter will not be completed until early tomorrow morning.  I apologize, but there was simply no humanly way possible. Even doing a double issue this week, with so many events, a lot of the events may not have justice done to them and will be covered next week.

The concentration of the issue will be on WWE, but the New Japan and ROH shows will also be given extensive coverage and hopefully some of the others will as well, space permitting.

There will be a 1996 back issue posted today on the site.
