Bill Says:  This is a full weekend of wrestling events.  SummerSlam, NXT Takeover: Back to Brooklyn, and the Ring of Honor “Death Before Dishonor” pay per view are all just a part of it.  We’re always looking for correspondents so if you attend any event and want to shoot a live report over, hit me at
