Another week and sadly once again we are talking about another wrestler passing away. So, this time, we have to discuss Joanie Laurer, better known to most as Chyna died at age 45 a few days ago. She certainly was a pioneer for the WWE and wrestling in so many ways. So, on today’s show we discuss what she meant to the business, what she did for women in wrestling, being a part of D-Generation X, our favorite Chyna moments, and anything else that comes to mind. R.I.P. Chyna
We also get into the Wrestling News in “Quick Hits,” where we talk about Will Ospreay being offered a New Japan contract, Samoa Joe winning the NXT Championship at a House Show an update on Bray Wyatt’s injury, Jay White doing his excursion in ROH, more on the Octagon story from AAA, TNA has a new Knockouts signing and more.
Then we get into the shows with Sean doing a quick rundown of WWE SmackDown, then we get into Lucha Underground and TNA Impact Wrestling.
We also preview the two New Japan house shows on 4/23 and 4/24 and give our predictions for them.
Finally, we do our usual ending with the W2M Top 5 Power Rankings, where we rank the five best wrestlers of this week, and then crown a winner.
