John Pollock and Wai Ting review WWE RAW 4/30/18:

Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn are treated to huge hometown reactions in Montreal, while Roman Reigns receives the opposite as he addresses the controversy from his Steel Cage Match at the Greatest Royal Rumble.

Finn Balor vs. Seth Rollins for the Intercontinental title, Ronda backs Natalya, Sasha blanks on Bayley, and Titus O’Neil capitalizes on his newfound notoriety.

John runs through Sunday’s NJPW’s Wrestling Hi No Kuni event featuring Minoru Suzuki vs. Tetsuya Naito for the IWGP Intercontinental Championship.

We take Café feedback to WWE Raw from the POST Wrestling Forum.

PLUS!! John and Wai’s very special SPOILER-FILLED discussion about Avengers: Infinity War. This review starts at 01:30:00. That’s 1 hour 30 minutes into this review. You’ve been warned!!

While I can’t remember if there was a height requirement, we had no problems taking our daughters (5 and 2 at the time) on the tea cups at Disneyland last year; in fact it was one of their favourite rides.

(Haven’t had a chance to listen to feedback, so I apologize if this was covered in the review.)

I agree with John and Wai about the Roode/Elias angle. It’s something different and Roode took a massive looking bump into the turnbuckle. The only problem is they couldn’t help themselves from showing the super-slo-mo replay that clearly shows Roode hitting his shoulder and not his throat. Everything looked so good in real time, and that production decision completely crapped on it.

Jean Paul and Francois are Scotty and Shane, tag team known as 3.0 from Chikara. Both are from Niagara Falls, so two more Canadians added to tonight’s RAW.

That’s right, I forgot they were from Niagara Falls. I knew them from Chikara as well, and they also wrestled in IWS in Montreal. Good friends with Owens I believe.

I was in tears when John was clued into who Capt America was :rofl::rofl::rofl:


The Cody & Brandi promo I mentioned on Monday’s show:

Glad to hear you guys enjoyed the movie, by the way. I liked that little chat at the end.

Brother Pollock thinking that Cap no-showed the Avengers’ WrestleMania was legitimately hilarious! :joy::100:



In Cap’s defense he did have a beard :rofl::rofl:

I think I was as confused as Wai at first when John asked if Cap was in the movie and then died laughing like everyone else.

John - The other Captain America movies are SO GOOD! Especially Winter Soldier which is still my favorite Marvel movie. And Civil War is on Netflix making it an easy watch. Certain parts of Infinity War (like why does Cap have a beard) would probably make more sense after watching Civil War. Take a break from watching 205 live one week and catch up on the Cap movies.


My favs also. Winter soldier is my favorite of all the mcu movies

Don’t worry John, this is the only Captain America I know …
