This week on W2M, We give our feelings on Bryan’s speech, his legacy, where his place in wrestling history is, and we wonder if he ever wrestles again. Then there’s the other thing people can’t stop talking about, which is Titus O’Neil being suspended 60 days for what seems like an ill advised hug of his boss. What could be the reason for this? Has Vince finally lost it? Or was this the right call?
Of course, we start things by discussing the wrestling news in “Quick Hits,” WWE released their Q4 financials on Thursday, revealing some interesting metrics about the WWE Network among other things. There’s also the ROH referee Kevin Keenan being fired, Mark Nulty passing away, and quite a few news and notes.
We move on to answer our questions about WWE RAW and then move onto this week’s NXT. After that, we go through the NJPW New Beginning 2016 in Osaka from yesterday discussing what we liked and what we didn’t, and we also preview the second New Beginning 2016 show in Niigata that happens on Sunday.
Finally, we review this week’s Lucha Underground, take a look at this week’s ROH TV, we discuss Impact on POP TV, and end on our W2M Power Rankings (yes, we are actually ranking them this year.)
