Good talk.

I don’t want to sound mean here, but I wish more callers are able to get on these shows sometimes. If a caller goes on too long, that takes away time from others getting on.

The first dude went WAYYY too long in my opinion. He wouldnt shut up. Brandon, MJ & Haanzi were all great.

I can go long and apologize. I will do my best for a quick hit and leave. I am not under the impression others are not getting to call in due to length of the callers who do. If folks dial in and are not getting through due to the calls, I sincerely apologize if I have stopped anyone. I am a big proponent as you probably can tell of getting involved and fostering the community so I encourage others to call! It’s not scary, they will not bite, and I love hearing others speak.


It’s all good. There were still a lot of good questions and talking points on this episode.

To further the discussion, I only just responded to the show’s big question on the YouTube version. I likely see myself watching AEW on Wednesdays and NXT the following night, not yet knowing how each two-hour show will be. As a US viewer with a cable box/DVR and a WWE Network subscription, that alleciates things for me. However, I watch more than just wrestling on TV, and some of those other shows may fall on Wednesday nights. Granted, the shows that come to my mind quicker are on FX, and they typically air new episodes of tgeir series at 10 PM ET (when these wrestling shows should be ending, provided they don’t do overruns) and replay them the following hour. Regular network shows, be it CW or elsewhere? No such luck, I gave to rely on my DVR.
