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!
Woof. Talk about a terrible go home episode of RAW to take us to Hell in a Cell. Steve and Jason take turns hating on all things Monday Night, including Lesnar’s bizarre non-promo, repetition, and MAKING HERSTORY. Also, both guys agree that Smackdown is the better show now. Join us all for this weird, WTF-ish build-up to tomorrow’s event!
WWE is truly looking to become the home of all wrestling in the world, if the news about a purchase of the TNA and Ring of Honor tape libraries are to be believed. We also present our notes on the Ospreay/Ricochet match we mentioned last week, and then run down the card for tomorrow’s No Mercy event.
The Dusty Classic is back, and this one shall be … GLORIOUS. Also, the guys lament the fact that Smackdown! is good again, run down the results for the Night of Champions Clashing, and discuss whether TNA should fight for life or give up the ghost.
Also, we’re hoping to do a homework assignment each week, giving us a chance to share some amazing matches that we might find here or there. This week’s features Ricochet vs. Will Ospreay. Enjoy and tell us what you think!
We’re back and knocking off the ring rust with talk of the big WWE Draft! Steve and Jason agree that the best thing about the event was Kevin Owens, while also wondering where else an announce table might go. In the second segment, it’s a deep dive into the insanity that was The Final Deletion. Put down that sandwich and step away from the craft services table, because it’s time for your match!
