It is common knowledge that Kayfabe News is the most reliable source of wrestling journalism on the planet, especially now that WCW Magazine no longer exists.

While we are proud to offer wrestling journalism of the highest caliber, we are only human and we sometimes make very small mistakes, usually through no fault of our own. 

So we would like to acknowledge a few teeny-tiny factual inaccuracies that have been pointed out by eagle-eyed viewers.

On behalf of the entire Kayfabe News team — and our parent company, Yamaguchi Industrial Solvents and Lubricants, Ltd. — please accept our apologies and these corrections:
