This week: Jeff Jarrett gets another check, the WWE is making bank, NXT is making cuts and booking arenas it can’t fill. Colt Cabana makes an appearance as does Shibata, and did they beat Damage CTRL just to make a political statement in Saudi Arabia? Then in the LAZY RIVER OF WRESTLING CRITICISM: we preview Crown Jewel, the greatness of the Bloodline segment last week, the noble attempts on RAW and by Rick Ross and more. Plus: Chris tells us about his day as a professional basketball coach.
