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

January 31st, 2019

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!
