Last week was Festivus, a secular holiday created in an episode of Seinfeld celebrated in the eve of the eve of Christmas, December 23.So happy Festivus for the rest of us! Among the traditions of this secular holiday include a Festivus dinner with friends and family, an unadorned aluminum pole, and the annual Airing of Grievances.

This week, Magic writers Caleb Durward and Matt Sperling wrote a pair of editorials expressing their opinions on the “Ban Top / Don’t Ban Top” controversy in Legacy. And the discussion shot to the top of Reddit last week thanks to the WWF-style storyline pitting the two writers against each other. So what’s the next classic wrestling storyline that will happen in Magic next week?
