FDH Lounge Show #11: July 1, 2007

Tonight, on the 11th live edition of THE FDH LOUNGE on, we bring you a very special broadcast outside our normal format. While normally we talk about any and all subjects in the world during our three-hour show, tonight, in the aftermath of the horrible Chris Benoit situation, we're all pro wrestling, all the time. We have with us our newest additions to the Dignitary list in the FDH Lounge: Ryan Ward, Kyle Ross, Jake Digman and Mike Ptak.

All of these individuals have a long history of covering pro wrestling for STC and Ryan and Kyle in particular were the longtime hosts of SUNDAY NIGHT SUBMISSION, the premier "smart mark" wrestling show on the Internet. Ryan and Kyle are bringing back SNS as occasional segments within the FDH Lounge, and tonight the entire show is being turned over to the STC wrestling reunion crowd.

On the STC message boards, where tonight's show has become the most eagerly anticipated on all of STC in the past several months, Ryan posted a rundown of what listeners can expect. It is reproduced as follows:
