Welcome back to the Sermon on the Mat, your weekly one-stop shop for news from the wider world of wrestling beyond the big cable TV monoliths that get all the coverage.

Indie wrestling is still shut down from the pandemic and everything sucks, but hey, I’m still comin’ at you with all the freebies that I can find!

Plus, a number of streaming services and Twitch channels are offering a constant stream of material for you that’s hard for me to include in the listing, so make sure to check ‘em out—

Free matches here!
