This week’s episode brought to you by Slice on Broadway, Occupy Pro Wrestling, and Indy Wrestling US!
We’ve got a special treat this week as we’re joined by Wrestle Zone’s Ross Berman! He is joined by our in-studio guest Jaye Cooper, as well as our usual group of wrestling fans with Sorg, Larry, and Bobby. This week’s topics include:
- Ross has been covering the Colt Cabana and CM Punk trial. We’ve got him on the podcast to share a little bit of what he’s been seeing.
- Podcasters and interviewers alike have been in the crosshairs awaiting the turnout of the Colt Cabana and CM Punk trial.
- Podcasts, in general, are entertainment – when someone frames it as fact-checked journalism, it can cause harm.
- A wrestling journalist having to switch gears to trial coverage?
- Covering New Japan is what prepared Ross for the Colt Cabana and CM Punk trial coverage.
- Ross covers New Japan, which brings us to Larry CANCELLING his WWE Network app!
- New Japan has been doing a bit lately – including some title changes and some reach to American and European audiences.
- Money in the Bank is just around the corner – as in THIS WEEKEND. We’re sharing some thoughts and speculations.
- AJ Styles v Nakamura for Money in the Bank? WWE is doing the same stuff we’d be seeing in New Japan!
- Has anyone checked to see if Brock Lesnar is still alive? We haven’t seen him in a couple months.
- We’re making some Money in the Bank predictions.
- The sons of IRS are facing each other, and we’re pretty excited about it.
- This week’s big question: If you had the ability to give a Money in the Bank briefcase to ANYONE in wrestling, who would it be?
- NXT Takeover is ALSO this weekend. We’re sharing some thoughts and predictions.
- OH: Lars Sullivan is great! I want to see him win the title at a house show!
- Lars Sullivan is what Snitsky should have been.
- What did YOU learn in wrestling this week?BONUS: Recommendation from our guest, Ross Berman: Check out David Starr v Mike Quackenbush if you get a chance.
