Strong show guys, I think you guys have built up a reputation of not being the everything sucks guys or the snarky guys, just 2 levelheaded guys who enjoy wrestling, So your criticism of WWE and AEW which Wai is right AEW kinda has slid from controversy stood out from the ordinary. I thought you guys were fair in your callouts pointing out how wrong it is that it was Roman who took himself out and the danger they’ve put everyone in.

(Apologies if this is covered on the pod, I haven’t had a chance to listen yet)

Where is the line in wrestling between storytelling and false advertising? This obviously isn’t the first time a wrestling company has promoted a match that it knew wasn’t happening. Is it not OK across the board (especially after the news breaks on Twitter), or only when it’s a match/wrestler that is (hopefully) a needle mover as far as profit is concerned? Or somewhere in between?
