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.
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.
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!
The Royal Rumble is nearly here, and our biggest problem is TOO MANY MONSTERS! Meanwhile, Sami has a new character and it’s … different. Also, Charlotte fought a wavy tube man, Bray hit his son, Dolph tried to kill The King (again), and Mickie James made her return to the main roster! Time to reset and do all this stuff again! WHEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Welcome to 2017, Grapplers! It seems that not much has changed, but the machine keeps rolling on. We have some Roadblock thoughts and reflections to mix in with our talk about the recent RAW and Smackdown Live goings on, including the HOT FIRE return of the King of the Cruiserweights, Neville, and why Sami Zayn is the most compelling story being told on the RAW roster right now. Also, how many entrance themes include self-voiced intros? Our report!
The last PPV of the year brings us our second Roadblock of the year, but this one is the End of the Line! We have updates on Zack Ryder, James Ellsworth, and Sami Zayn, in addition to our predictions for the big night. Who can afford to eat a loss, Rusev or Cass? Will the New Day lose so soon after making history? Will Sami survive Strowman? Will the cruiserweights deliver? Will we care by the end of the Ironwoman match? Will HHH start the build to Wrestlemania? And will someone please give us a break and not announce a new belt and/or show for a few months?
Well, that was quite a match, huh? Jason and Steve break down the Lesnar/Goldberg classic, and lament the fact that nothing has changed after a pretty good show. They also discuss Sami Zayn’s transformation into Mick Foley, the New Day’s slow heel turn burn, Steve’s shame in the women’s wrestling game, and why the Royal Rumble match is probably the perfect next move for Bill Goldberg’s ride off into the sunset.
