    EP 318: Rumble, Young Man, Rumble

    (Recorded on January 26, 2023)
    On this episode, The Brethren take some time to talk about RAW XXX (30); especially the Tribal Court segment with The Bloodline. They also take a moment to discuss the shift in policy by Warner Bros. Discovery, as they changed their stance on allowing a Briscoe brother on one of their networks. Then they discuss and preview the 2023 Royal Rumble. Predictions are made, but even more fun are the "prop bet" predictions. It is the only PPV/PLE of the calendar year where you can actually LOSE points during predictions. Who will win the Men's and Women's Royal Rumble matches? Is the Mt. Dew Pitch Black match going to be a giant cluster? Is it another "cinematic match"? Did WWE learn from 2022 when they gave away 99% of the surprises ahead of the show? Will we continue to get people pointing to the WrestleMania sign?
