Mid-August 2012 Update

So the DOVE stuff is mostly finished. Results and title history is up to date and proper for what was available. The regulars roster is good and I’ll be doing “home regulars” profiles throughout the weekend and finish up the DOVE section’s introduction. The results are good from 2010-present and the title histories include defenses–but the info on the first reign (Yuko Miyamoto’s first) are sketchy.

Currently I’m compiling KAGEKI stuff and probably GUTS or Ganko Pro. I’d love to add FU*CK and might get around to that.

Thanks for reading!
