With just under two weeks away from Oceania‘s release so if you’re looking for ways to pass the time, we’d suggest that you heed Corgan’s advice and check out Resistance Pro. “I know a lot of XRT’s audience will remember old school wrestling on channel 26 or 44; we’re kinda like that AWA style. A lot of families have been coming because it’s got a good feel.”
