Episode 45: Japanese Wrestling & TakeOver Chicago Picks

May 16, 2017

In episode 45 CJ and Sara dip their toes in to Japanese wrestling and preview this weekend's NXT TakeOver: Chicago event.

Even though I've watched pro wrestling for quite some time, Japanese wrestling is not something I really gravitated towards nor consumed much of. With the upcoming landing of NJPW USA, we decided to watch some matches and discover what Japanese wrestling has to offer.

Episode 43: WWE Payback 2017

May 3, 2017

We're back after a brief hiatus with a look at WWE's Payback network special. You know the one with "that match". There were some good to great matches up and down the card and for the most part a hot San Jose crowd. For some reason Sara kept calling it Backlash and Buster chimed in a few times as well!

Episode 41: WrestleMania 33 Orlan-doh!

April 5, 2017

In episode 41 Sara and CJ rewind through WrestleMania 33. Taking place in sunny Orlando, the show was a tale of two halves. Rather than an ultimate thrill ride, it ended up being more a grappling marathon. There were some definite highlights however including: the return of the Hardy Boyz, Austin Aries vs Neville, Stephanie's table bump and more.

Episode 38: Fastlane Hits Roadblocks & Nakamura Style

March 13, 2017

In episode 38 we take a look at WWE's last network special before WrestleMania, Fastlane. The theme of the show was ten minutes and there was definitely some questionable booking decisions. There were still a couple of good matches including Gallagher/Neville and Strowman/Reigns on the card.

After the break we talk about the match from Wrestle Kingdom 10 featuring AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura. Did CJ over hype it in his head too much? How was the crowd and what do we think having years worth of each guy in WWE to compare to.
