Paul Diamond gets up after PE leave but Pat Tanaka is still down holding his knee as we go off the air.
My thoughts on the show…
Well for the fact that November to Remember wasn’t supposed to be televised we saw more from it then I was expecting. That being said I still didn’t like this episode, as it didn’t feel like there was really anything to it. Thumbs down.
