We’re tagging in Lindsey Kelk to talk with us about the last show before WWE’s big PPV weekend!

And while Smackdown didn’t have that much happening, how can you not love the Usos and Breezango constantly putting together brilliant promos? But we’ll explain why that’s good… and a potential problem for the tag team scene.

And Braun Strowman is officially out of wrestling until he gets his elbow fixed. How big of a bummer is this? A pretty big one, but we’ll all get to be sad together.

Plus: Adam Cole has had his final match in Ring of Honor! And he’s been fired from Bullet Club! Now that Marty Scurll is his replacement, we’ll explain what makes him Scurll so compelling and why we’re looking forward to seeing Cole in NXT soon.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Lindsey Kelk.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Paul Heyman introducing Desiigner.

Lindsey put over The Fashion Files..

Hal put over Erick Rowan on Talking Smack.

Payback was on its way to being a really solid show!

There were plenty of smartly told stories in the ring, great moments throughout… and then the House of Horrors match happened. Then the quality went as backward as Bray Wyatt’s tractor. We’ll tell you exactly how we felt in this week’s main event.

And Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman had an amazing main event to the show! But what’s keeping Mike from fully embracing him as a performer? And why is everyone going after the Secondary titles on RAW and Smackdown instead of the world titles? There’s a lot to get to, the Nation can’t wait to go through it all with you!

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Corey Graves’s comments to Tom Phillips

Mike put over The YouTube Series Wrestling Shorts..

Hal put over AJ Styles on Talking Smack.

It’s a tale of two WWE shows…

You’ve got Smackdown which has set up a lot of stars, including Jinder Mahal, The Singh brothers and Breezango, for the spotlight that’s eluded them in their careers. But is that push coming too fast and too soon? We’ll take a look.

On the other hand, you’ve got RAW, which is treading water going into the first post-Wrestlemania Pay Per View “Payback.” But there were still a few things worth noting this week, including the much-hyped Dumpster Match between Kalisto and Braun Strowman.

My Special Wrestler

Chris Cubas is a stand-up comedian who had previously lapsed as a wrestling fan for a number of years. But who finally brought back the excitement for him? None other than the hardcore legend, Mick Foley.

Visit Chris online to find out about all of his ongoing projects.

The Superstar shake-up has led to some new developments that we all expected and ones that we absolutely couldn’t have seen coming.

Jinder Mahal has officially become the Number 1 contender for the WWE Title! He’s got the Bollywood Boyz as his new heaters and it looks like him and his veins are set for the big time. We’ll tell you how we feel about his major push.

Plus, Alexa Bliss and Charlotte have set their sights on their respective brand's major titles. Is it the right move to get them in the spotlight so soon? Probably! We’ll explain.

Plus, more geeking out about Braun Strowman, a look at the U.S. Title competition and a lot more.

Fashion Corner

As WWE has tried to move away from the standard objectification of its female athletes, the fashion of the women has changed. But that doesn’t mean that the sexiness factor has been completely eliminated. Does WWE need to completely eliminate that if they want things to be on a truly equal level? We’ll take a look.

The Three Count:

Hal put over Edge and Christian’s Pod of Awesomeness.

Danielle put over Referee John Cone and his great bump from the exploding ring.

Mike put over 3-Minute warning in honor of Rosey Ano’ai’s recent passing.

The road to Wrestlemania is far from stable!

Will Bray Wyatt’s opponent for the WWE Title be Luke Harper and AJ Styles? Who will hold the Universal Title after Kevin Owens and Goldberg face each other? Is Naomi out of Wrestlemania completely?

Hal and Danielle are going to break down some of the biggest points of contention as we move towards the WWE’s biggest event of the year.

Then, Mike Eagle joins the show to discuss one of the under-discussed points of professional wrestling: The fashion.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Rusev’s impression of Dusty Rhodes on the Talk is Jericho podcast.

Wow, a bunch of things happened on WWE TV this week!

There have been THREE Champions crowned since Sunday: Bray Wyatt finally captured the WWE Championship at Elimination Chamber; Naomi beat Alexa Bliss for the Smackdown Women’s Championship, and Bayley defeated Charlotte for the RAW Women’s Championship.

Which one are we most excited for? We’ll explain.

And was Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens’ Festival of Friendship the best RAW segment ever? Right now it’s kind of hard to think otherwise. We’ll gush about it and speculate about what could come next.

Plus, in a new segment, Danielle breaks down the past and present of misogyny and misandry in wrestling.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Bella Brains on YouTube.

Mike put over The return of Gillberg.

Hal put over Alexa Bliss’ continued promo perfection on Talking Smack.

This past Sunday was TLC (Tables, Ladders and Chairs), December’s Smackdown exclusive PPV. And between a table match, a ladder match, a chairs match AND and tables, ladders and chairs match, it all got to be a little exhausting.

But The Nation of Conversation breaks down the results and explains why they’re on board for the big moment in the show’s main event between Dean Ambrose and AJ Styles.

Plus: Comic creator Box Brown joins us for the latest installment of our series “My Special Wrestler.” His comic biography “Andre the Giant: Life and Legend” earned him praise from comic and wrestling fans alike.

He’ll tell you all about why Ravishing Rick Rude, one of the most sleazy characters ever to grace the wrestling ring, is actually very under-appreciated.

Brown’s newest comic is entitled Tetris: The Games People Play.

The three count:

Danielle put over The Black Lotus Triad on Lucha Underground.

Mike put over The break-up of Heath Slater and Rhyno on Talking Smack.

In an effort to prove the investment into the Cruiserweight division was worthwhile, WWE finally gave the performers in the division their own show: 205 Live! And while it’s a step up from what we had before, there’s still room to improve.

And some major performers on RAW seem to be changing up pushing characters in more interesting directions. How encouraging is this? We’ll try to figure that out.

Plus: Not every championship reign is created equal. To explain why, the Nation of Conversation breaks down some recent examples including Sasha, Sexy Star, The New Day and Charlotte.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

The three count:

Danielle put over Sasha Banks and her vengeful kendo stick attack.

Mike put over The new feud between wrestling podcasts Killing the Town and Keeping it 100.

Hal put over The Vader episode of Something to Wrestle With Bruce Prichard.

This year the WWE has really been pushing the boundaries of how much wrestling they can squeeze into a single week.

NXT TakeOver Toronto aired on Saturday featuring a ton of great matches, including what Hal thinks may have been the match of the year. NXT is clearly in a reloading stage right now, but the team explains why they’re still on board for the brand.

Plus: Survivor Series, the forgotten WWE big four pay-per-view, happened on Sunday. And everyone, including the Nation of Conversation, has something to say about the finish to Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg match. And with the show featuring three tradition Survivor Series elimination matches, has the concept been revitalized or run into the ground?

But before all of that, we just had to talk about Lucha Underground’s Aztec Warfare 3. Sexy Star became the first women to ever hold the Lucha Underground Championship and Danielle was live in the temple to see it happen.
