July 2021 is a big month for professional wrestling. WWE and AEW are returning to live touring. Impact Wrestling and Ring Of Honor are welcoming back live fans for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Somehow, professional wrestling survived more than a year of uncertainty, lockdowns and empty arenas.
Thomas Mathis joins us in studio – with our new probationary on-air talent, Ronnie Starks! It’s a good thing that we have the good ol’ boys Sorg and Mad Mike to keep things straight while we talk this week in wrestling news, including:
RAW was live in Pittsburgh. Our crew was in attendance and we’re sharing our thoughts.

We’ve got a full couch this week as Joe Dombrowski, Rizz, and Larry join Sorg in studio with Mad Mike tuning in through that magical thing called the internet. There are lots of things to talk about this week, like:
We’re seeing some new faces on WWE main shows.
Rizz is making some predictions about where we may see things headed with WWE now that we’ve seen some call-ups.
Joe is sharing his thoughts about the WWE main roster call-ups.
Is WWE making assumptions that main roster fans are already familiar with NXT talent when they do call-ups?

We’re taking a bit of a deep-dive into the women’s wrestling changes that are happening.
We’re talking some NXT UK Takeover Blackpool!
Apparently the UK audience addresses wrestling a little differently than US audiences. (What’s with the shoes?)
Joe is sharing some of his UK insights with us.
Sooo…Walter made his WWE debut.
Is WWE taking a page from history and creating their own territories? Instead of competitive markets, they’ll be cooperative?
This week’s Big Question: What region would you like to see WWE expand to next?
The WWE Performance Center has a YouTube channel, and they release some pretty cool stuff – like the Ray Rowe and Sarah Logan wedding video!
It’s that time of year when we reminisce on what has happened throughout the course of wrestling. Mad Mike, Sorg, and Larry take a trip through old show notes to pull up last year’s predictions, and we make some bold predictions heading into 2019:
It’s the end of the year, which means we’re running through last year’s WWE predictions.
Mad Mike is rewriting Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer for the RAW women’s match.
