PWTorch editor Wade Keller is joined by PWTorch Livecast cohost Andrew Soucek as they discuss the reaction to Ronda Rousey-Nia Jax and Stephanie McMahon's role, the Bobby Lashley's Sisters segment with Sami Zayn, the latest developments with Roman Reigns including linking him again with Seth Rollins, and more including live callers, emails, and an on-site correspondent to share what happened in the arena off-camera.
Then, in our bonus segment at the end of the Raw conversation, we present a sample of a newer weekly VIP audio show, "You, Me, and Wrestling with Cameron Hawkins." He's been a cohost on the WKPWP several times, but every week you can hear him interview a wrestling fan. In this episode, he interviews Jeff Jones, a longtime PWTorch VIP member and South Kongress listener, who fills Cameron in on early Ring of Honor, from 2002-2006. Low Ki, as both a talent and employee, is a focal point of the conversation, as he was a great example of the serious nature and hard-hitting style that set ROH apart from other promotions. Xavier’s inability to get over with the fans is compared to Roman Reigns, and to a certain extent, Jinder Mahal’s initial title run. Jay Lethal gets a shining endorsement from both host and guest as an all-time underrated talent. Samoa Joe’s year-plus title reign is dissected, Jeff talks about C.M. Punk’s amazing post-title win speech, and the “role” of the smart fan is analyzed in both proximity to the “know” and their interactions with those they consider to be “less than.”
