I’m surprised Jackson Ryker was even able to fly into Tampa for the show! I thought they put travel bans on all the Proud Boys after the DC riots.

So was HHH vs. Orton for last night a “bait and switch”? Certainly played out that way on WWE Twitter… and I was just thinking that if there’s one thing WWE does well, it’s try to “over deliver” when they have to scrap an advertised match.

Did I hear AJ Styles was facing Drew Gulak ? That’s my dream match at the moment. I would have no problem giving them 20mn on a PPV main event. They could do more than just steal the show, they could steal the year.

You’re going to sit here and tell me that Ric Flair wouldn’t turn on Charlotte to get some ask? I don’t know if I would be too sure about that.

Great show. Your ability to break the stuff down is amazing. I think part of the reason I still watch Monday night so I can leave feedback and truly understand the show you guys are breaking down.

He knows what he’s doing. You’re not going to teach the old dog new tricks.
