New idea: Strowman has become sentient garbage and just wants more trash buddies so he keeps trying to throw people in dumpsters. Also, Steph is back to make it all about her, so we’re talking about anything else to spite her! How about Drew Gulak’s spelling comprehension? Or a Bludgeon/Breezango feud? Maybe you’ve heard of the SHHHIELD? Or the increased rules of engagement for War Games? Lots to talk about that’s NOT about SS, so listen up!
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.
Kurt Angle’s big angle has come and gone, so what’s left? Will he get big breaks thanks to his big daddy? Will Gable take on a new partner? Time will tell, but time will also bring us the Battleground PPV event, where these questions will be answered: Will Natalya fart a hole in her tights? Will the Punjabi Prison at least be memorable? And will the Wyatt Boys take on Breezango? Listen in and tune in on Sunday!
The first-ever Great Balls of Fire PPV event is in the books, and man was it a scorcher! The intensity was high and it gave us some great matches. Other thoughts this week: quoting songs doesn’t require a bibliography, Steve thinks Slater is set for a push, Joe better get his due, who does Kurt Angle LOOOOOOOVE, and SEXY FASHION RANGERS.
Vacation’s over and it’s time to talk about a LOT of wrestling! Money in the Bank came and went, Carmella stole the briefcase (twice), and that lovable bearded maniac made his return. Things are going pretty well, so let’s talk about our hopes and fears for the first-ever Great Balls of Fire PPV event!
We refused to hinder the Jinder and now we’re all just bit parts in his Punjabi celebration! We also got one of the best matches of the year from two guys who exist on the fringes of the WWE Universe, but who stole the show nonetheless. Also of note this week: Gargano and Ciampa are the MVPs of the week, KO on Talking Smack was brilliant, Pete Dunne needs to learn how to carry a championship belt, someone gave Breezango guns, and why Nak ain’t strong style on the mic. Keep your wad and enjoy the show!
After Strowman’s injury, Raw rebuilt with a great Balor/Reigns match, Goldust finally having enough of R-Truth’s schtick, and the promise of a new number one contender for The Beast Incarnate in the near future. Meanwhile, SmackDown is ready for their Backlash, which means Nakamura will be making his in-ring debut, Breezango might finally capture gold that isn’t already on their fabulous outfits, and Tamina Snuka will almost certainly get out of having to wrestle. All that, plus a great TakeOver card to look forward to and a wonderful UK special to look back on!
There were many good things about Payback that the guys agree on. There was also one match that was Steve’s pick for Match of the Night. We will not talk about this match (but they totally talk about that match). Also, Braun continued his dominance, Sheamaro turned ugly (and amazing), and the Fashion Files were officially opened. Don’t worry, crying is absolutely ok here.
Alistair Black is an awesome kickboxing vampire, we think. There are other things to talk about that don’t matter as much, but we’ll run them down anyways. We do have questions, like: is a dumpster threatening when worn as shoes? Does Ziggler think owning a monkey and a ferris wheel is a bad thing? Are Breezango really the number one contenders for the SD Tag Titles? When will Jack Gallagher finally get his due? When will the Hardyz break, and will Cesarmus be the ones to do it? Does Steve think of Joe vs. Lesnar in bed? Will Jinder ever return the WWE Title? And just what ARE Great Balls of Fire?
