What? A regular W2M episode on Monday night? Yes, you are reading that right. After much discussion amongst the loyal listeners, ourselves, and just the changing landscape in wrestling podcasts in general, we’ve decided to go to two shows a week. So, expect a new episode every Tuesday and Friday morning going forward.
On this edition, we go in-depth on RAW, (which this week emanated from London, England,) discussing the big topics to come out of the show, go through what stood out, what was a little lame, & of course we round it all out with a final rating for the show too.
We have a special topic on the biggest news over the weekend, which is the ever evolving story about TNA. Will TNA be sold within the next couple of months? Can new investors really save the company at this point? Do they need to re-brand? What could they really do to stand out in today’s world of wrestling? What does it say about TNA that Panda Energy apparently separated itself from TNA up to five years ago. We try to answer as many of these questions as we can.
Finally, we go into the wrestling news that’s happened over the weekend in “Quick Hits,” where we discuss New Japan cancelling Wrestling Hinokuni (4/29) because of the Earthquakes in Kumamoto and what Gedo could do to still have that show somewhere else. There’s also the Adam Rose and Konnor wellness suspensions, WWE announces the first set of Global Cruiserweight Series matches, Total Bellas being real, the announcement of the first Global Cruiserweight Series matches and more on what was a news heavy couple of days.
