Ep. 103: WWE Stomping Grounds Preview, AEW’s Sell-Out

June 20th, 2019

With WWE Stomping Grounds on the horizon this Sunday, we're here with the only preview show you need. We break down the event, match by match, and give you our predictions for each and every bout, as well as evaluate the build and direction for each.

AEW sells out All Out in Chicago in record time, but was this really the biggest ticket demand for any show in wrestling history? We debate.

Plus, listener emails and Kyle's "I Love This Sport Deep Dive of the Week."

Ep. 102: Diagnosing (And Fixing) WWE’s Problems

June 13th, 2019

As the Summer gets underway, WWE is full of problems. The television is far from "must-see," and the company seems to lack any real direction for the foreseeable future. We diagnose WWE's primary problems (some recent developments, others long term ailments) and attempt to brainstorm some ideas that could begin to turn the company around.

While WWE struggles, New Japan is still experiencing some new excitement as we get ready for the G1 and Will Ospreay continues his case for Wrestler of the Year. Plus, AEW puts tickets on sale for All Out.

Ep. 101: New Japan Is Back

June 6th, 2019

New Japan Pro Wrestling is garnering headlines this week as the final night of the Best of the Super Juniors produced two fantastic matches: Jon Moxley vs. Juice Robinson and Will Ospreay vs. Shingo Takagi. We're talking about NJPW taking back the headlines once more following a big few weeks from AEW. 

Then we transition into some final thoughts on NXT TakeOver 25, who should move up to the main roster next from NXT, the booking of the Money In The Bank briefcase, and of course Kyle's match of the week.

Note: Ryan had some microphone problems, so the audio quality is not up to our usual standards. We apologize and will get this fixed before our next show, but we didn't want to trash what was a great discussion!
