Ep. 83: Farewell Dean, WWE Roster Drama (Special Guest Chris Van Vliet)

January 31st, 2019
00:0000:00

We've said it before, and we will say it again: 2019 has already been a crazy year in pro wrestling and we're only one month in!

This week we are joined by special guest Chris Van Vliet as we talk about all of the biggest news in wrestling, including the reports that Dean Ambrose and Hideo Itami are on their way out of WWE.

Plus, what did we think of the Royal Rumble and NXT TakeOver Phoenix? We share our grades, plus Chris gives us the live perspective from being in Phoenix.

Later, we look ahead to WWE Elimination Chamber, Fastlane, and the WrestleMania 35 card. First and foremost, should Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey be a singles match, or should Charlotte Flair be inserted into the match to make it a triple threat?

All of this and so much more!

Ep. 82: WWE Royal Rumble, NXT TakeOver Phoenix Previews

January 24th, 2019
00:0000:00

What should be one of the best wrestling weekends of the year is on tap this Saturday and Sunday as WWE NXT presents NXT TakeOver Phoenix and WWE presents the 32nd edition of the Royal Rumble.

We're here to break both events down for you in full and get you all ready for the big shows. We discuss each and every match on both events, previewing them and picking winners. We also parlay this into a greater discussion on where WWE could be going when it comes to WrestleMania 35 and TakeOver Brooklyn during WrestleMania weekend. 

Plus, has the importance of winning the Royal Rumble diminished over the last decade or so? We've got some interesting theories on why that may be the case and also why it has happened.

All of this and so much more!

January 21st, 2019

Our first show of the new year looks back at all of the big news stories that have already made 2019 a year to remember.

The majority of the episode this week is spent talking about the launch of All Elite Wrestling. We discuss AEW's potential roster, television network, upcoming events, and whether or not they have a chance to rival WWE.

Plus, we talk about WWE taking a more risque approach to wrestling in 2019, including some controversial angles over the last couple of weeks.
