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!

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.

Anne Robinson from The Weakest LinkWe refused to hinder the Jinder and now we’re all just bit parts in his Punjabi celebration!

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!
