A fearful illness has gripped the locker room and thrown the TLC card into chaos! Will Angle wrestle? Will Styles and Balor put on an instant classic? And how about all those cruiserweight and women’s matches, eh? All that, plus SmackDown Live is still good thanks to Owens and Zayn, not to mention Rusev, Pulp Fashion, and THE BLUDGEON BROTHERS.
That was one HELL of a show! Hell in a Cell is over and we have at least one match of the year candidate out of the entire card. Once the guys stop gushing about the tag match and pondering the future for Owens and Zayn, it’s time to talk Raw and the impact the reunited Shield is already having. TLC is gearing up to be a good show, but who will use the T, who will ask for the L, and who can’t wait to see the C? Also, Jason was right about two of his predictions and he makes sure everyone knows it.
After the guys determine who REALLY loves their grandmother, it’s off to webcomics! Nothing Special goes against it’s title, I’m The Bird Guy reminds us that Instagram isn’t a great comics platform, Protanopia shows promise, and the terrific tag-team of Ehud and Yael are back with some more short story comic goodness.
Raw didn’t have much this week, but if you can’t get behind a slow build to a Shield reunion, there’s nothing you’ll like on the WWE main roster this week. Meanwhile, Hell in a Cell is tomorrow we don’t really care because: one or both of the Hype Bros might turn, Roode’s entrance will outdo Ziggler’s, Orton will have an Orton-ass match, The Usos and New Day will steal the show, Shane/KO will end badly, and we hope the U.S. and WWE Championships swap places. Finally, should we care about what’s going on with Bray? History should steer you on this one. Enjoy the Cell and hope for no Hell!
No Mercy is in the books and Cesaro will never be the same! Also, why does Bray Wyatt continue to be a terribly executed character study? Will Nia win the big one soon? What happens when John Cena is the victim of his own ridiculousness? Did Enzo have the Best Week Ever (TM)? All this, plus KO and Sami fight forever and Mickie James shows that she ain’t just some old lady to be trifled with.
After a bit of nonsense about bad impersonations versus good impersonations, the guys take a look at two fun fantasy webcomics. First up is Dungeon Construction Co., brought to us by some familiar faces, and featuring a dissection of those fantasy gaming tropes we all know and love. Secondly, Steve brings an incredibly horny monster comic to the show with Frankenstein Superstar. If you’ve ever asked yourself just how much sex the iconic horror staple has, you’ll love this comic!
It seems like it’s been forever, but it’s time for another WWE PPV Special Live Event! No Mercy is upon us, and there’s loads to talk about, including exploring the Suplex City in our hearts, Shane McMahon’s punchable face, Vinny Mac’s need to bleed, RACISM, the continual mishandling of Shinsuke Nakamura, The Miz back doing what he’s best at, Neville and Strowman’s superiority, and a good Roman Reigns promo. Tune in Sunday and see how many things we were wrong about!
