Really liked the book review, John. Heard good things about the book already and the review piqued my appetite for it. Looking forward to the Shinsuke Nakamura review as a book transcribing a 3-4 hour interview sounds intriguing.

Loved the Lucha Underground review again. One of my new favorite reviews.

Wai: Is he apart of the Rabbit tribe?

John: He’s apart of the dead tribe

I think Cody winning the NWA Title will be the main event of All In. I forgot who said it but Cody winning his dad’s title at an event he created like Starcade makes sense

Edit: instead of Making a triple reply, I really enjoyed the book review

This Nitro book sounds amazing. I can’t wait to see the snippets of internal memos and scripts.

This was a great book review, John. Well-paced and super informative. I think if I’m ever asked to do a book review on a podcast, I’ll be using this one as inspiration. I’m about halfway through the book after listening to your review and it’s excellent.
