Pro Grapplers Episode 63: MOORO ROMANO

The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and The Undertaker stand in the ring during the Attitude Era of WWFThe last of the big four WWE PPV weekends has come and gone, and we’re … pretty much right where we were before it happened! We’re hyped for the new women on both Raw and SmackDown, and getting back down to business has already served stars like Joe, KO, and Zayn well. Also, Steve was blissfully unaware that Kid Rock had anything to do with SS, Jason is happy with the Asuka booking (looks strong!), Braun deserves an Oscar, SmackDown returns to its days of copying Raw, shilling for the Shop, and OMG IT’S ALMOST WRESTLEMANIA SEASON AAAAAAHHHHHHH

Pro Grapplers Episode 61: Mahal, The King’s Man

Spinal Tap is lost backstageSure, we’re all thrilled AJ won the title, but how long will he hold it? Also, did WWE, in fact, hinder the Jinder? Also, Total Divas participation seems to be the best path to job security in WWE right now, we worry that Sami and KO might not do anything at Survivor Series, Raw proves just how dumb they (or at least Angle) are/is, Steve still isn’t sold on the New Day/Shield match for SS, intergender matches remain a kitschy novelty in WWE, and Lucha Underground will open the temple for yet another season.

Pro Grapplers Episode 56: More Like Jinder Mah-balls

Shane McMahon vs. Kurt Angle at King of the RingRaw 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!

Pro Grapplers Episode 53: The Night Roman Reigns Took It Out

Brock Lesnar confronts Heath Slater about his many childrenOne week later, we’re already tired of the Cena/Reigns beef, weiner-measuring contest and all. But don’t worry, because KO and Shane are coming to blows on SmackDown over a mention of some kids. Also, Carmella can’t make up her mind while failing to convince us the MITB was a good idea. Enzo’s getting far too many chances, Ziggler is collapsing like a dying star, and Asuka is done with NXT. At least week 2 of the Mae Young Classic will buoy your spirits until better things come along. Oh, and Strowman/Show tore it up yet again. Go watch that on repeat.
