Everybody wanna be WWE, but don’t nobody wanna be WWE
That’s the theme for this week as pro wrestling has been emulated and excoriated equally across pop culture. Jeff, Bre, Marcus and Chris Mac talk about the future WWE Women’s Champion and child of Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan, Birdie Danielson’s birth [1:45], The Canelo-Chavez Jr. fight that ended with a NJPW esque showdown between Canelo and GGG [3:45], Jared Followill of King’s of Leon (they’re still alive?!) trashing pro wrestling and subsequently getting escorted out the paint by Wrestling Twitter [5:45] which led to an overall discussion of the art of pro wrestling and why the condescending, pompous and corny derision from the “Wrestling is Fake” community needs to cease. We preview the ROH/NJPW War of The Worlds PPV and the solid card that is sure to please wrestling fans [20:00].
In WWE talk, we discuss the injuries rampant across the E and how they’ll affect feuds [30:00], Why overseas RAW shows are so bad [35:00] USOS/Breezango appreciation [40:00], How Smackdown’s top three feuds (RKO/Jinder, AJ/KO, Zayn/Corbin) completely dwarf RAW’s top three (Seth/Joe, Finn/Bray, Miz/Dean), and how we see these feuds playing out [43:00].
In Comics talk, we discuss Free Comic Book Day and some of our favorite reads [58:00], The Hellboy reboot without Perlman and Guillermo Del Toro [1:05:00], Donald Glover as Executive producer, Showrunner, and writer on a new Deadpool animated series on FXX [1:06:00], and Black Lightning officially on its way to the CW [1:10:00].
