Awesome show! I love how the listeners choices often echoed your discussion!

I had absolutely zero issue with any of the winners, runners up, or honourable mentions in any of the categories EXCEPT, I was truly shocked that Juice Robinson couldn’t even manage an honourable mention for best promo considering he was even getting praise from other wrestlers like Kevin Owen’s for his skills and he’s the only guy delivering them in that old schools Dusty Rhodes-mosque fashion.

Same. I was overall really happy with the choices.

I didn’t pick Daniel Bryan as the best promo because I thought it was just recency bias. Then I heard the intro to this show with his comeback promo. Forgot about that. Definitely would’ve been my pick.

Fun show guys! Looking forward to Worst Of 2018 next week.

The podcast version of this show came off better than the archived video version, but I’m not sure if that’s just me.

Great time listening to this!

I was thinking with all the praise (deservingly so) for Gargano is it not crazy that his peak feels like this 2 yr run in NXT. Does it seem possible that he can ever match this journey/story on the main roster? Is it possible for the main roster to tell a story this good (thinking back, they did this with a Bayley also)

It’s not just possible, it’s reality. When Gargano and Ciampa get called up they will be lucky to win the 205 championship. They might get to continue the feud on the main roster for a little bit but will quickly be forgotten about like the Revival.

So just enjoy the moment and savor the feud and the incredible story they are telling.
