Cageside Catch Up for week ending April 8, 2012: WrestleMania 28 fallout and Brock Lesnar

What a week it's been.

This time seven days ago, we were all watching WrestleMania 28, the biggest event in the pro wrestling business. Whether you thought it was good or bad, you had opinions on it. And that kind of chatter translated to lots of money for WWE and tons of hits for your favorite wrestling wrestling website.

Thanks, by the way!

And it that wasn't enough, some dude named Brock Lesnar showed up the next night on Raw and shook up the main event scene by F5ing John Cena.

Tons of WWE news this past week but TNA managed to sneak in some stories thanks to a Twitter happy, insane(ly awesome) ex-employee and a torn hammy.

We cap it off with some Ring of Honor news complete with two matches from last weekend's Showdown in the Sun event.

If you happened to have missed any of it, here's your chance to fill in the blanks!
