Ep. 98: Money In The Bank Preview, Hart/Magee Thoughts

May 16th, 2019

WWE Money In The Bank 2019 is this Sunday and we're here to preview the show for you, getting you up to speed on everything you need to know heading into the event, as well as predictions from us on what will happen in each and every single match.

But before we get to that, it's been another newsworthy week. We talk about AEW's now finalized deal with TNT and whether or not the Double Or Nothing PPV price is too high. 

Just before going on the air, we received word of the untimely death of former WWE Diva Ashley Massaro, so we talk about her contributions to the wrestling world and tragic death. Earlier in the day, Ric Flair was hospitalized for a scheduled procedure, which is another topic of discussion.

Lastly, we break down the airing of the holy grail of (previously) unseen wrestling matches: the 1986 Bret Hart vs. Tom Magee match. We have thoughts on how WWE presented the match, the documentary that aired, and the match itself. Plus, some deep thoughts on why this once again proves Bret is one of the greatest wrestlers of all time (and some things in particular that he did much better than Shawn Michaels).

Ep. 97: AEW TV Confirmed, Time To End The WWE Brand Split?

May 9th, 2019

A ton to talk about this week, most notably the fact that All Elite Wrestling's television home looks to be all but finalized. We break down what the network means for AEW and how nostalgia could be worked into their promotional packaging to bring back wrestling's lapsed fans. 

Lars Sullivan has been making headlines this week and not for a good reason. We've got some heated thoughts on his horrible past comments and it should mean for his WWE career. 

WWE tried to spice things up this week with the new wild card rule. However, despite a small bump to ratings, it's pretty evident that there are deeper issues that need fixing. We debate if it's time to put the latest brand split behind us.

Lastly, we break down this week's edition of Dark Side of the Ring - a tremendous documentary on the life and death of Gino Hernandez.

Ep. 96: Ambrose Is Moxley, Moxley Is Ambrose

May 2nd, 2019

Dean Ambrose is at the forefront of the wrestling industry as he has made his official exit from WWE and re-emerged (via Twitter) with a much talked about video where he has regained the persona of Jon Moxley. We're here to talk about what this all means, our impressions of the video (and its clues), and where we might see "The Artist Formerly Known As Dean Ambrose" next.

Plus, we talk this week's edition of Dark Side Of The Ring documentary on VICELAND that focused on the Von Erich family. We're here with an honest review of what we saw.

All of this, as well as talk about WWE being in a lull after WrestleMania and how that compares to past years, WWE booking quirks, Lio Rush drama, and a whole lot more.
