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.
