It’s been five weeks since our last episode, due in part to John being really sick but that is all in the past. Even though we just had a full wresling episode last show John has decided to dedicated another full episode to the squared circle, as he has an axe to grind with WWE and the quality of their recent product. The last few months since Wrestlemaina, WWE has mailed it in stringing togther lackluster event after lackluster event and John is tired of it, so he is joined by Jason to talk the current state of Pro-wrestling. Our hosts also mark out reviewing the latest NJPW event Wrestling Dontaku, and talk about what they think WWE is doing wrong and why NJPW is currently the superior wrestling product.
Ever since the meltdown of the Golden Falcon there has not been any wrestling talk on the show, but this episode that changes as John enlists his buddy Jason to help him talk all things wrestling. From WWE to NJPW with even a little ROH sprinkled in so all your wrestling bases are covered. Our hosts even give their predictions on who will win their matches at Wrestlemaina and what else they expect to happen on the grandest stage of them all.
