Pro Grapplers Episode 45: RAW Is Boring

Noam Dar attempts to enjoy his Pizza Hut Cheesy Bites Pizza but is interrupted by The ClubJason still loves the Fashion Files, but has no time for Facetime in wrestling matches and thought Raw was a rerun this week. Steve dug Okada vs. Omega, loves that Lucha Underground is back, and stays hyped about the return of the Hype Bros. Together, they run down the Money in the Bank card, including two MitB Ladder Matches!

Dana Carvey in The Master of Disguise

NOT a Jinder Mahal joke

No matter what you thought about the endings of Extreme Rules, it’s behind us and we move on. This week, we talk about how awesome Samoa Joe was with Paul Heyman, how Dean Ambrose loves to hide (and we love him for it), the continuing Cassening, the Women’s Money in the Bank briefcase, the continued excellence of the Fashion Files (telepathy and romper edition), and the no-go for Mojo.

Pro Grapplers Episode 43: People Just Tell Me Stuff

Corey Graves needs to leave Raw immediatelyShane made the first Women’s Money in the Bank match in history! Alexa Bliss and Bayley had one of the worst segments in Raw’s history! Orton will beat Mahal because of history! Is Aries poised to finally win because of history? And for the first time in the history of Extreme Rules, a historic Fatal 5-Way match will determine the number one contender for Brock Lesnar’s Universal Championship, which has gone missing for the first time in WWE’s history! It should be a memorable one, if not historic.

Pro Grapplers Episode 42: I Bet Brock Lost The Championship Belt

Anne Robinson from The Weakest LinkWe 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!

Pro Grapplers Episode 41: Backlash ON A POLE

Judy Bagwell on a Pole Match at WCW New Blood RisingAfter 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!

Kramer fights children in his karate class on SeinfeldWe’re live on tape from the UK this week, and outside of a bobby and a Sherlock, it’s not all great. But it’s not bad, either! All this, plus: Sheasaro outsmarts the entire Raw tag division, the Miz remains hot stuff, Jason prefers his nUsos be silent, Backlash is all about Nakamura wrestling, probably, Pete Dunne is mean and super ugly, and playing board games with Braun Strowman.

Pro Grapplers Episode 39: Deputy Dango!

Deputy Dawg cartoonThere 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.

Pro Grapplers Episode 38: Payback-Per-View

Oscar the Grouch from Sesame StreetAlistair 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?

Topps trading card for WCW's LodiIf you’ve ever used one human being to hit another human being, you know how satisfying it can be. Nia Jax does it. Braun Strowman does it. Big people prefer to use smaller people as weapons, it’s canon. Also, Jason gets to educate Steve on the nuanced career of WCW’s Lodi, both guys freak out over Jinder’s current freaky body, the Colons could be a thing, Joe shouldn’t cut promos after matches any more, the perfect time to watch 205 Live, and why Strowman is STILL the best thing in WWE right now.

All that, plus: Wyatt and Balor will compete to see who is the silliest wrestler in WWE, the Cruiserweights made it a week to remember, and Drew McIntyre made his re-emergence in NXT.
