Ep. 122: CM Punk Returns, Match Ratings In 2019

November 13th, 2019

Ryan, Justin, and Kyle are all here to break down the week in pro wrestling, starting most notably with CM Punk's return to wrestling this week as part of WWE Backstage.

We also look at this week's Wednesday Night Wars before transitioning to our topic of the week - wrestling match ratings in 2019. The motivation for this was all of the different opinions out there on the match between Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley at AEW Full Gear. What do we think makes a good wrestling match? How much do we factor in crowd reaction? Are there any issues with the way others give match ratings? What matches do we enjoy less than other people? This is a GREAT discussion. 

Plus, we finish up with Kyle's "Deep Dive of the Week" which takes a look at Survivor Series history.

Ep. 121: AEW Full Gear Preview and Predictions

November 6th, 2019

Ryan, Justin, and special guest co-host Derick Schroeppel are here to talk all the latest in pro wrestling as we get ready for AEW Full Gear this Saturday night on PPV.

We start out with "In The News" and look at some of the top stories in wrestling of late, including thoughts on this week's Wednesday Night Wars between WWE NXT and AEW Dynamite, WWE's Saudi Arabia drama coming out of Crown Jewel and Corey Graves' comments on that, the NXT Invasion, and we can't forget Seth Rollins.

Then, in our "Topic of the Week" featured position, we run down the AEW Full Gear card with our match by match preview and predictions for the show. 

Plus, Derick rounds out the show by stepping in for Kyle in the "I Love This Sport Deep Dive Of The Week" segment by featuring an all time classic from Memphis, Tennessee.
