This week’s episode brought to you by Indy Wrestling USSlice on BroadwayOccupy Pro Wrestling, and IndyWrestling Network!

It’s that magical time of year when we put ourselves in Vince McMahon’s shoes for MayhemMania.  We’ve got Mad Mike, Larry, Farnsworth, Sorg, and Mainstream Matt in studio to talk about:

  • We’re preparing for NXT to see some roster changes due to some call-ups.
  • 205 Live has a new broadcast member in Aiden English.
  • We are headed into the royalest of rumbles with men’s and women’s Royal Rumble matches.
  • We’re running down all of the places where you can find John Cena (or his voice). He’s everywhere!
  • We are relying on Sasha Banks to save what could otherwise be a meh match with Ronda Rousey to make it amazing.
  • Ronda Rousey should be in NXT learning the ropes. She’s doing okay where she is – but she’d be better if she were going through and learning the ropes.
  • We’re blaming Smashmouth for so many things tonight.
  • We’re talking some Hardcore Holly and Brock Lesnar.
  • Are we comparing Finn Balor to Hardcore Holly? Maybe.
  • We’re running through our dark horse options for the Royal Rumble.
  • It’s MayhemMania season – which means we’re booking our dream matches.
  • What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?

  • We’re taking a bit of a deep-dive into the women’s wrestling changes that are happening.

  • 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?
