This week, we talk Sasha and Naomi walking out, Stephanie taking a sabbatical, Nicole Savoy retiring, television upfronts, the in-ring return of Ric Flair and PWG booking Chris’ favorite wrestler and their first women’s match since 2011. Plus, the LAZY RIVER OF WRESTLING CRITICISM in which we talk of all the things the Patriotic Wrestling Federation, and a lot of AEW Dynamite: The perfection of Wardlow/MJF, the great match of Page/Takeshita, Serena Deeb and JAS/Regal promos and why, contrary to public opinion, the Jokers in the Owen Hart Tournament were well done. Plus, what do you mean they canceled a Wonder Twins movie?
