This week, Chris and Jeff talk Janel Grant suspending her civil case, WBD and AEW bidding, expiring contracts and all the news of the week. Then, THE LAZY RIVER OF WRESTLING CRITICISM: We briefly go through King and Queen of the Ring before getting to a long talk on Double or Nothing and Dynamite in terms of continuous storytelling as Jeff thinks there’s a “booking the ppv to get to the free tv” issue. Then week 2 of our new feature, VADER CLUB: Scott Norton vs. Chris Benoit from a Thunder in 1998.
