2002: A Year In Wrestling

Last year’s predictions column seemed to go down well, so I thought I’d do one for this year as well. Sadly with ECW and WCW done and dusted, there’s less to work with this year… so let’s see what the Crystal Ball shows me for this year…

The Church Of Dreamer

Important Note: The following is a parody (for Billy Gunn fans, that means it’s all made up) and none of this has happened.
