Bobby Roode vs AJ Styles
Roode tries to work AJ’s arm early on and they go to the mat, then Roode gets AJ in a side headlock, AJ sends Roode to the ropes and tries a charging forearm, but Roode catches him with a back elbow. Roode whips AJ across the ring and AJ with a leapfrog and a beautiful dropkick that sends Roode scurrying out to the floor. AJ goes out after Roode and whips him into the ring steps, then rolls him back inside and hits a leaping kneedrop that gets 2. Roode with a boot to the breadbasket and some right hands in the corner, but AJ fires back with chops that echo throughout the building and nearly backdrops Roode into the lights. Roode backs off to the corner and catches AJ off guard with a chop to the throat. AJ tries a leaping forearm into the corner, but Roode moves out of the way and takes AJ out with a clothesline as we go to commercial.
We’re back, and AJ whips Roode into the corner and charges in after him with a shoulderblock to the ribs. AJ tries to leapfrog Roode in the opposing corner, but Roode catches AJ and hotshots him on the top rope. Roode comes off the second rope with a Blockbuster and makes a cover, but only gets 2. Roode with a big elbowdrop for another 2 count, AJ tries firing back with some right hands but Roode whips AJ hard into the corner and makes a quick cover for 2. Roode with a snapmare that has a little extra snap in it, then locks AJ in a neck vice before taking him down to the mat with a rear chinlock. AJ slips out of Roode’s grasp and knocks his lights out with a leaping enziguiri, then waits for Roode to pull himself to his feet so he can nail him with a leaping forearm. AJ is just pummeling Roode in the corner and then dumps him out to the ring apron. Roode drops AJ’s throat over the top rope, but tries to go up top and gets nailed by AJ, who follows him up and hits a top rope Frankensteiner for 2. AJ sets up for the Styles Clash, but Roode stops that by ramming AJ into the corner and then flattening him with a spinebuster. Roode tries a charge, but AJ moves and sends Roode crashing face first into the turnbuckle. AJ goes for the Styles Clash again, Roode escapes and then dodges the Pelle kick and gives AJ a Perfectplex for a close 2 count. Roode goes out to ringside and gets a chair, and James Storm decides to take a stroll down to ringside to stop Roode from using it. The referee goes up to get Storm away from ringside as AJ takes Roode out with a dive, and AJ yells at Storm to get outta there while Storm tells him that he’s just trying to help. AJ tries a springboard move from the apron, but the distraction by Storm gave Roode just enough time to recover and shake the rope, causing AJ to shish kebab himself. Roode quickly cradles AJ and gets the win.
Winner: Bobby Roode
Austin Aries bumps into Hulk Hogan backstage, and Hogan says he needs to stop walking around like he’s the champion because he’s not. He tells Aries to hand that belt back by the end of the night or he’ll find someone else to face Jeff Hardy at Turning Point.
Kurt Angle is backstage giving Wes Brisco a lecture on how to be successful in the business, and Sting comes in and says that tonight, the three of them are going to take care of Aces & Eights.
Joseph Park is in the ring, and he says his experiences with Aces & Eights taught him two things: that the human body is not meant to go through a table, and that it felt good to pull that mask off of the member of Aces & Eights. His partners at Park, Park, Park & Park have begged him to get out of this wrestling thing, but it’s about being a man and facing Aces & Eights, and the only man who can make that happen is Hulk Hogan. He’s out here pleading with Hogan one last time to give him a match with Aces & Eights. Hogan’s music hits, and he comes out to tell Park how proud he is of everything Park has done for them, especially when he pulled the mask off the member of Aces & Eights, but he was lucky. Park isn’t a wrestler, he shouldn’t be in the ring, but he can’t have TNA held liable for what would happen if Park got hurt in the ring. Bully Ray comes out to join the party and say that he knows Hogan is going to tell Park no because he’s been telling Bubba no for months. Bubba’s sticking up for Park because he’s got heart and guts, and he’s a pretty tough son of a bitch who has a lot to prove against Aces & Eights. He just wants Hogan to listen to him for one second, because he believes in Park and the fans believe in Park, and these are Hogan’s fans and Hulkamaniacs and he shouldn’t say no when it feels so good to just say yes. The crowd starts a YES chant as Park begs Hogan again, and Hogan tells Park that he’ll allow it, but just this one time.
Tara is backstage feeling up Jesse Godderz, who is asking her if she saw him hit all his super lucha moves last week, but ODB comes in and says he didn’t hit her with any of that crap, so since EY still isn’t around, she’ll fight them both tonight.
AJ Styles is backstage complaining to the Mystery Cameraman about Storm getting involved in the match, but Storm comes in and says that they’ve been in TNA the same amount of time, but AJ is somehow the face of Impact Wrestling. This Sunday, he’s going to ram his boot into the face of Impact Wrestling.
ODB vs Tara & Jesse Godderz
ODB rushes in and gets double teamed for a moment before having the tables turned on her, and she begins cleaning house on Tara and Jesse by herself. Jesse whips ODB to the corner, but she rolls out of the way of his charge and nails him with a forearm before giving Tara a drop toehold into his crotch. She comes in with a bronco buster on both Tara and Jesse, then spears Tara and rolls her up for 3.
Jesse sneaks up behind ODB and she catches him, but Tara nails ODB from behind and hits the Widow’s Peak. Tara pours the contents of ODB’s flask on her face as we go to commercial.
ODB is backstage on the phone yelling at EY and telling him that he has to be there this Sunday so they can take on Tara and Jesse at Turning Point.
We look back at last week’s Gut Check, and then we go to the judges as they discuss whether Christian York deserves a contract. Taz thinks it’s a no-brainer, but the questions are whether he can hang as a singles guy after spending most of his career in a tag team, and why he never got any further than he did after all his years in the business.
Kurt Angle & Sting vs Devon & Doc
Sting and Angle jump Doc & Devon on their way to the ring, and all four men start brawling at ringside. Sting rolls Doc inside and the bell rings to officially start the match. Sting dodges a charge and hits a DDT on Doc for 2, but Devon grabs Sting from the outside and allows Doc to take his head off with a lariat. Devon tags in and connects with a diving headbutt for 2, then he unloads on Sting with right hands in the corner. Devon tags out to Doc and they nail Sting with a double shoulderblock and then a series of elbowdrops from Doc gets 2 on Sting. Doc with a snap suplex on Sting for another 2, then he goes to a rear chinlock. Devon comes in and hits a big old legdrop on Sting, but mouths off to the crowd instead of going for a pin. Devon suckerpunches Angle and goes back to pummeling Sting with right hands, then Doc with some punches of his own before hitting a big splash for 2. Sting tries to fight back, but gets beaten back down by Doc, who then distracts the referee so Devon can choke Sting with his boot. Devon in with a flying back elbow for 2 on Sting, but then Doc comes in and he and Sting wipe each other out with a double clothesline. Sting makes the tag to Angle, and he comes in to clean house on both Doc and Devon. Angle with a second rope dropkick to Doc, release German suplexes to both men, and then he hits Devon with the Jacker Slam for 2. Sting with the Deathdrop and then the Deathlock on Doc, but Devon gets ahold of a baseball bat and nails both Angle and Sting and gets himself disqualified.
Winners: Sting & Kurt Angle by DQ
Bully Ray runs in and clotheslines Devon, then gets a table out from under the ring. He goes to grab Devon, but Devon heads for the hills and Bubba chases him to the back. In the meantime, Doc goes at it with Sting until a couple other members of Aces & Eights run in. One guy hits Sting with a hammer and Doc chokeslams him through the table as the other guy throws Angle out of the ring. Doc takes the hammer and absolutely destroys Sting with it, repeatedly hitting him in the ribs and smashing both hands before Samoa Joe, Hernandez, and Chavo Guerrero Jr finally run in to chase Aces & Eights off. Wow, this was super brutal and they’re really selling what a beating Sting took. We see a bunch of replays as Sting is helped to the back and we go to commercial.
It’s time to find out the fate of this month’s Gut Check contestant, Christian York. JB introduces the judges and asks York if he gave his best effort, and he says that he and everybody here knows he put forth his absolute best effort. We start off with Taz, who says he thought York did a great job last week and he’s been doing it a while, and he thinks York has that It Factor, so Taz says yes without a doubt. We go to Bruce Prichard, who says York has to asks himself why he never broke through after 16 years in the business and whether he really has IT. Prichard asked himself that question, and his answer is that he just hasn’t had a chance, so the answer is yes, he is the newest member of the Impact Wrestling roster. York is ecstatic and he says this is exactly what he’s worked 16 years for, and he tells the fans at home not to let anyone pull their dreams away from them, because if your go out there and do it, dreams can come true. I’m really happy to see this, York worked his ass off and 100% deserves this.
Austin Aries is wandering around backstage talking on his cell phone and walks past Bully Ray and Brooke Hogan arguing about something, and they see Aries coming and stop, then walk off in different directions as Aries casually continues his conversation. Hmmmm, what’s this about?
We see a video package of Austin Aries saying he doesn’t think Jeff Hardy will be able to pull out another lucky win against him this Sunday, Mike and Taz run down the card for this weekend’s Turning Point event, and then Hogan comes into his office and is confronted by Joey Ryan, who says he knows Hogan is a big fan of his work and wants to congratulate him on winning the X Division Title. Hogan says he’s not doing that, and then goes over to his desk where Matt Morgan is sitting in his chair, and tells Morgan that he’s not going to be allowed in Ryan’s corner this weekend. Morgan gets in his face and tells Hogan that he still doesn’t know who he’s dealing with. Morgan and Ryan leave, and Hogan turns around with a smirk on his face and says he does know.
Brutus Magnus, Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian vs Samoa Joe, Chavo Guerrero Jr & Hernandez
Joe, Chavo and Hernandez rush the ring and start brawling with the heels, who all bail out to the floor. Chavo goes out and brings Daniels back in, and they pinball Daniels back and forth with right hands and Chavo goes for a cover and gets 2. Chavo fires Daniels backfirst into the corner and Daniels quickly scurries over and tags in Kazarian, who quickly gets hiptossed and then Hernandez tags in, slams Chavo onto Kazarian, and comes off the ropes with a splash for 2. Magnus tags in, Joe tags in as well, and Magnus slides out to the floor and runs for his life. He catches Joe coming back into the ring, and now the heels tag in and out and triple team Joe in the corner. Chavo and Hernandez come in to even the odds and Daniels is back in trouble as Joe catches him with a charging elbow in the corner and a leaping enziguiri. Joe with the snapmare/chop to the back/kick to the chest/kneedrop combo for 2, then tags in Chavo, who comes in with a slingshot senton on Daniels. Hernandez comes in and bearhugs Daniels before dumping him in an overhead release suplex. Daniels is in deep trouble as he catches a beating from Joe’s team, but Chavo winds up in the wrong part of town and gets dragged out to the floor where he takes a 2-on-1 beating from Daniels and Kazarian. Chavo takes a beating for several minutes before catching Kazarian with a flying headscissors and making the hot tag to Hernandez, who comes over the top rope with a shoulderblock to Kazarian and then starts tearing through everyone with clotheslines and forearms. Hernandez pounces Daniels out of his boots and goes for the Border Toss on Kazarian, Daniels blocks that and they try to double suplex Hernandez, but he blocks and double suplexes both of them. Now it’s Joe and Magnus, and Magnus dodges a senton, but walks right into a snap powerslam. Magnus tries another charge and gets planted with the STJoe. Daniels breaks up Joe’s cover at 2 and tosses Joe out to the floor, and all heck breaks loose until Hernandez takes Daniels out with a dive to the floor. Chavo goes to the top rope to try and frog splash Magnus, but Kazarian takes him out and we’re back to Joe and Magnus. Joe goes for the Muscle Buster, Daniels stops him and Joe gets Daniels in the choke, Kazarian breaks that up and they double goozle Joe and set him up for a top rope elbowdrop from Magnus that puts Joe down for 3.
Winners: Brutus Magnus, Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian
Lots of stuff going on in that match that made it hard to do play by play on but good stuff and I like that Magnus finally got a decent win over someone.
Bobby Roode is backstage and is thrilled that he beat AJ Styles earlier tonight and got him and Storm at each other’s throat, and it’ll make it that much easier for him to win his World Title back.
Mike and Taz take us back to the brutal attack on Sting earlier tonight by Doc of Aces & Eights, then we go to the ring where Austin Aries comes out to the ring with the original TNA World Title belt. A ladder is set up in the middle of the ring as Aries says that Hardy has been calling himself the best wrestler on planet Earth, but the whole Best In The World thing is overplayed because he’s the best professional wrestler in the universe, and three seconds at Bound For Glory did not change that. The fact that he has to wrestle Hardy in a ladder match means Hardy and everyone else knows that Hardy can’t beat him again in a wrestling match. A lot of people say Hardy’s career has been defined by the ladder, and he’s arguably the greatest daredevil the business has ever seen, and he’s climbed to the highest of highs and taken some of the greatest falls man has ever done. This Sunday at Turning Point, Aries is going to make sure this is the fall he doesn’t get up from because he’s walking into Turning Point and is going to beat Hardy at his own game, then he’s going to take both belts and melt Hardy’s down to make it into a belt buckle so he can wear Hardy’s face by his crotch. To make all that happen, he has to hand the original belt back over right now since that’s what Hogan told him to do, but he’s not going to do it because if Hardy wants the belt, he can come down like a man and take it from him. Aries drops the belt and takes his jacket off, and Hardy comes down the ramp with his belt and goes at it with Aries. Aries tries for a brainbuster, but Hardy slips out the back and lays Aries out with a Twist of Fate, then picks up both belts and hangs them from the hook they’ll be hanging from this Sunday. The belts are raised above the ring and Hardy climbs the ladder to wave at the crowd or whatever, but Aries comes back in and kicks the ladder out from under Hardy. Aries puts the boots to Hardy and then puts the ladder over him and climbs up to pull the belts back down in a visual he hopes to repeat this weekend at Turning Point.
Hello everyone and welcome to this week's ROH on Sinclair recap. If you all are ready, then let's get on with the show!
Its a special "Road Rage" edition of the show this week, with a look at matches from last month's "Glory by Honor XI" iPPV from Mississugga, Ontraio, Canada.
We get the usual intro, then Kevin Kelly & Nigel McGuinness welcome us to the show, run down tonight's matches that we will see from "Glory by Honor XI", then go right into the 1st match.
The 1st match is supposed to bebetween Tadarius Thomas & Roderick Strong. However, Strong comes out in street clothes, not dressed to wrestle and wants a mic. Strong to Martini that this is one of the biggest shows of the year and he has to face "him?" He has beaten nobody. Strong says he has heard enough of Martini's crap and is officially quitting the House of Truth. Strong then says he is gonna drink beer and watch Truth's boy Michael Elgin lose tonight. Strong leaves as Martini chases after him. We think Thomas is gonna forfeit, but then Martini comes back with Rhino, who is not happy. Martini says that everything with Strong is fine and that as his hired mercenary, Rhino will face Thomas, although Rhino is reluctant about it. Martini says afterwards, they will get a couple of "Hoopla Hotties" and take our parts off. Martini says to "TD" that he will D.I.E. to the G.O.R.E. Rhino says he is not ready, but the bell sounds, leading to.......
From the Glory by Honor XI Internet PPV: "The Man Beast" Rhino w/Truth Martini vs. Tadarius Thomas
We move forward to the end of the match as Rhino hits a belly-to-belly suplex. Crowd chants for the Gore as Rhino gets set. Martini trips up Thomas as he was getting back up, but then Thomas catches Rhino with a kick on a 2nd Gore attempt.
Thomas then hooks Rhino in a La Magirstal for the upset victory.
Winner: Tadarius Thomas by pinfall (La Magistral)
After the match, Rhino grabs Martini, who flashes money in Rhino's face to try and keep himself in the good graces of Rhino. However, it does not work as Rhino gorilla presses Martini over the ropes and to the outside where Martini lands hard back first on the barricade. We see that the sharp edge of the barricade ripped Martini's pants and caused a giant cut on his thigh. Referees carry Martini to the back as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial, we go to a video highlighting the Kevin Steen-Jay Lethal incident from "Killer Instinct" in Rahway, New Jersey last month when Steen spit in Jay Lethal's mother's face and Lethal went nuts. We then see after the show when Lethal attacked Jim Cornette and threw him across a table, injuring Cornette's back in the process and forcing him to step down as ROH's authority figure.
We go to a phone call from earlier in the week with Jim Cornette, who says that Lethal's parents got a little excited and threw a drink at Steen. Steen then spat on Lethal's mother, but Jay went a bit too far attacking Steen and some of the Ring of Honor officials. Cornette says that he re-aggravated a back injury due to Lethal's attack and he will not be able to travel. Cornette mentions that Lethal's parents have talked about suing Steen. Steen then complained to Ring of Honor Management and got what he wanted because Ring of Honor wanted to avoid a lawsuit. Cornette says that since he is not able to travel, he will have to appoint a troubleshooting matchmaker, which he hopes to announce next week.
"Inside Ring of Honor"
The 1st topic is Matt Hardy, as ROH recently did an interview with Hardy to get his thoughts on the ROH Roster. This week we will see Part 1. Hardy talks about The Briscoes, Davey Richards & Jay Lethal and while he puts them over, he also puts over himself in the process. Hardy finally says that while ROH is a great company, they need someone who is a mainstream character that can take ROH to the next level and implies that its himself.
The final topic is what happened at the main event of Glory by Honor XI, when Kevin Steen defended the ROH World Title against Michael Elgin.
We see a video package of the match, the post-match attack by Roderick Strong on Michael Elgin and Kevin Steen receiving a box after his win that was revealed to have an El Generico mask inside.
Finally, we hear that new matches for Final Battle 2012 will be announced next week as we go to commercial.
Back from commercial, we go to video highlighting last week's Survival of the Fittest 6-way finals that saw Jay Lethal come out on top, last eliminating Davey Richards before we go to their match from Glory by Honor XI.
Before we get to the match, Lethal has a mic and says that Joe Koff told him not to bring up what happened last week again, but its live, so he doesn't care. Lethal says that Kevin Steen can kiss his ass. Lethal says that through all the confusion, he put Jim Cornette in the hospital as the crowd chants "Cornette sucks" & "Thank you Lethal". Lethal says that ROH has putting the blame on him, but ROH told him he was too nice, that he needed to be mean, that he needed to have a "Killer Instinct". Lethal says that ROH can also kiss his ass. Lethal says he has respect for Davey Richards, but considering all the anger he has inside, Davey will be the wrong person at the wrong time.
From the "Glory by Honor XI" iPPV in Round Three: Jay Lethal vs. "American Wolf" Davey Richards

The Vorst Nationaal wasn't sold out for the first time in years. I was seated front row and had some good contact with the stars and as always Charles Robinson.
Fifteen minutes before the show started, a promo with the Prime Time Players about Rey and Cara aired.
(1) Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara defeated the Prime Time Players by pinfall. Rey and Sin Cara did the signature pose of the Prime Time Players. The match was a basic tag match where Sin Cara was targeted. Rey won the match with the 619 and a splash from the top rope.
(2) R-Truth defeated El Local by pinfall. Truth played with the crowd and lost a piercing during the match. El Local did some nice moves, but Truth won with his finisher.
El Local left quickly and Truth was halfway up the ramp when The Miz attacked Truth and then cut a promo on how he will regain the Intercontinental Title later tonight. He also did his signature "Awesome!" line.
Then, Tony Chimel asked us to tweet if Ricardo Rodriguez should be allowed at ringside.
(3) Jack Swagger defeated Ted DiBiase by submission. DiBiase came out first to a small reaction. The crowd popped for his Gangnam Style dance in the ring, though. Jack Swagger came out to some loud boos. The match was quite long and went back and forth with both wrestlers putting a lot of effort into the match. The end came with DiBiase jumping from top rope and sold landing badly on his ankle. Jack Swagger applied his Anklelock and DiBiase tapped out.
(4) Kaitlyn defeated Natalya by pinfall. This was quite a good Divas match with both Divas doing some nice moves. I can't remember the end of the match, though.
(5) Randy Orton defeated Alberto Del Rio (w/Ricardo Rodriguez) by pinfall. First out was Ricardo to announce Alberto, who came out to some boos mixed with some cheers. Then, the music of Orton hit and the roof blew of the building. Orton came out with a cocky attitude and mocked the signs made for him. The match was really good and Ricardo was allowed at ringside, which made for some good interferences from him. Alberto tried to do the RKO, but Orton got in the zone and started his chain of moves. Then, Ricardo tried to interfere, but Orton countered and then went for the RKO. Orton walked away after winning, then returned and went around the ring for some hands and he signed some programs.
(6) Wade Barrett defeated Justin Gabriel by pinfall. Justin Gabriel came out to a small pop, but Barrett came out to some boos and cut a promo in English and French. The match was not super and the crowd was not into the match. Barrett won with his elbow finisher, which looks less impressive live.
(7) IC champion Kofi Kingston defeated The Miz by pinfall to retain the IC Title. The Miz came out to a lot of boos, but there were enough cheers for him. Kofi came out to a massive pop. The Miz played a lovely heel with a lot of posing and mocking the audience. Kofi won with his Trouble in Paradise.
(8) Sheamus defeated World Hvt. champion Big Show by DQ; Show retained the World Title. Show came out first and looking really cranky, but it was cool to see Show as the World Heavyweight Champion. Sheamus came out to a big pop and ran to the ring to get the match started. Both men hit their signature moves, which looked and sounded really good. The finish came when Sheamus tried to hit Show with the Brouge Kick, but Show pulled Charles in front of him, so he called for the bell.
After the match Show, tried to hit Sheamus with the W.M.D., but Sheamus countered with his Brogue Kick. Sheamus went around the ring to sign some signs and went to the back. Show was still in the ring and when Sheamus his music stopped he got up rather quickly and looked where Sheamus was. He then picked up his WHC and got out of the ring. Then, the really funny part came. Show walked away with his head held high and chest forward. This looked really funny on him. This concluded the show.
The sound in the arena was bad and for the promos, you really had to focus hard to hear the audio. The crowd was okay, but I think Smackdown missed some star power in Ziggler and Bryan. Overall, the show wasn't bad and the wrestlers looked to enjoy themself.
- Randy Orton - Sheamus - Rey Mysterio - Kofi Kingston
We noted before that Vince McMahon was high on the team of Cody Rhodes and
Damien Sandow. Vince is especially a fan of Sandow's work and it's said he is
open to pushing Sandow even if it means breaking him away from Rhodes.
- Tyson Kidd reportedly received big reactions from fans in Birmingham, England on Monday and Tuesday. Kidd defeated Michael McGillicutty in the dark match on Monday and wrestled a match for Saturday Morning Slam on Tuesday. He reacted via Twitter last night:
"I am humbled by the fans here in Birmingham. Felt like I could do no wrong again here tonight. Loved every second I was out there"
According to the latest issue of Power Slam, Carlito has an open offer to return to WWE, whenever he desires. The magazine, however, notes that the former WWE Superstar is enjoying the freedom of working independent groups.
The second generation grappler was released from his contract with WWE in May 2010 due to a violation of the company's drug testing program and subsequent refusal to attend a rehabilitation facility for a reported addiction to painkillers.
We noted last week that before going with Team Punk vs. Team Foley as the Survivor Series main event, WWE officials were considering Ryback vs. John Cena vs. CM Punk for the WWE Title as the main event.
As seen on last night's RAW, WWE made some major changes and booked Team Ziggler vs. Team Foley at Survivor Series as well as the Triple Threat for the WWE Title with Ryback, Cena and Punk.
WWE reportedly changed the matches because they weren't happy with the way the Team Punk vs. Team Foley announcement came off last week and weren't happy with the buzz it was generating.
Reason Why Drew McIntyre Was Not on Raw Tonight Posted by Steve Carrier on
11/05/2012 at 11:50 PM
Drew McIntyre posted the following on his Twitter
explaining why he wasn't at Raw tonight.
For those who know me, they are
aware I'm not the most emotional person in the world but this is something that
as private as it is I want to share with the world because I am so lucky and
proud. My mother is currently very ill and if you have the time please send a
prayer her way, she has battled through ataxia since her early 20s being told
she would never have children to raising my brother and I to the men we are
today. She has overcame so many obstacles thrown her way over her life not
selling the pain for one moment putting everyone else first including battling
through chemo and radiotherapy.
Sitting with her now I can still see
fight in her eyes, she is Angela Galloway, my mother and my hero. I wrote this
to her when she got sick, again please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
Me hero isn't a singer, nor on tv.
dosent play sports or rally to make the world a better place.
My hero is
a warrior, as strong as Atlas and as brave as a soldier in the trenches.
My hero has looked at adversity their entire life and overcame with no
doubt in their mind, NEVER taking heed of others opinions, powering through
when others would have simply given up.
My hero inspires me when I think
I can't handle what life throws at me.
My hero is my mum and no matter
where I travel or who I meet there isn't a person on earth like her
