This week the guys talk Tony Khan’s Forbidden Door, Bret Hart re-signing with WWE, talent leaving WWE and AEW, new names, and a discussion of what is the point of NXT 2.0 if they aren’t doing the mission statement? Then THE LAZY RIVER OF WRESTLING CRITICISM: A discussion of hate in promos, and why WWE’s characterization of babyfaces forces the issue to turn them heel; Jade vs. Marina; the randomness of NXT character choices, good comedy and bad promos in wrestling this week, and MORE!
