    WWE Stars Moving To AEW: The Good and the Bad

    WWE Stars Moving To AEW: The Good and the Bad

    We've got another collabo-pod for you this week as Ryan joins Garrett Gonzales of The Fight Game Podcast. 
    Ryan and Garrett discuss AEW's successes (and misses) when it comes to using former WWE stars as part of their company. What has made a good crossover, and who should have AEW maybe looked the other way on? We also talk about Cody Rhodes bringing in independent stars for his TNT Championship "Open Challenge" and whether that's been a success or not. Plus, Garrett interviews Ryan about his experiences in covering wrestling over the last 20 years. A really fun trip down memory lane.

    WWE's Worst PPV Events, The Live Crowd Effect

    WWE's Worst PPV Events, The Live Crowd Effect

    Last week's WWE Extreme Rules PPV show got us thinking - what are the worst WWE PPV events in history? So decided to hit record and talk about it. 
    Then, we talk about the return of live wrestling crowds in North America (whenever that may be). Will that helps the current downward trajectory of WWE's product? We have a lively discussion on this as well.

For all levels of fandom

I recently learned about this podcast from the 2 Jabronis with a wrestling podcast podcast. Couldn’t be happier that I found it. Helps me keep up with my wrestling news since I can’t always watch as much as I like.
