    Ahead of AEW's Double or Nothing, Chris and Mat do some quick predictions of the matches--without PredictionBot's help. And then, Mat receives an interesting email from a listener claiming to be a better Wrestle Buddy than they guys are, so Chris and Mat play the Newlywed Game in order to prove they know each other. But that doesn't matter, the person who emailed them, Dog Dad Lawyer, comes on the show and ruins the episode.
