Goodness gracious, we’re really only a few days away from Great Balls of Fire!

And we’ve really solid feuds to look forward to ahead of the damnedest named PPV of the year: Braun Strowman vs. Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar vs. Samoa Joe, Enzo vs. Big Cass.

What are our hopes? We can’t wait for you to find out!

Plus: New Japan Pro Wrestling held it’s first ever show in the United States. Chances are it will never be able to truly challenge the WWE, but what do we want from the world’s second biggest wrestling company as they expand stateside?

Main Event:

Is WWE going too far with it’s latest treatment of things like race and nationalism. Sure, the “evil foreigner” is a wrestling staple and Jinder Mahal and Rusev might not have seen the level of success they’ve currently attained without it. But sure it’s time to evolve it in some way shape or form, right?

So after a really rotten week of WWE’s portrayal of women’s wrestling, we were due for a really GOOD week!

The RAW women main-evented the show, with Nia Jax looking great AND Sasha Banks winning the right to challenge Alexa Bliss for the Women’s Title.

On Smackdown, Carmella won the official redo of the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match! But was this an outcome that was worth all that other nonsense that we had to deal with last week? We’ll take a look.

Misandry Corner

It feels like we needed this right? This week we’re spotlighting the clip that lose Linda McMahon her chance at a U.S. Senate seat: Vince McMahon making Trish Stratus strip and bark like a dog.

And to wash that taste out of our mouth, we’ll recast that sexist segment with men!

Wow, what a week it’s been.

The WWE decided that the first ever Women’s Money in the Bank match should be won by James Ellsworth. Well, not really, he won it on behalf of Carmella. But was having Ellsworth climb the ladder, retrieve that briefcase and taking the spotlight from the women good heel heat or a bridge too far? We’ll talk about it.

Plus, there were a ton of other things that happened: The men’s Money in the Bank match! Cass turning on Enzo! Baron Corbin’s tummy! So let’s dive right in.

Rebekka Johnson and Kimmy Gatewood star as "Stacey" and "Dawn" in the upcoming Netflix series "GLOW."

The show is all about the 80's LA-based wrestling promotion Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling. It tells the story of a group of women who were cast to learn how to wrestle and appeal to a demographic that the mainstream WWF had often ignored.

They tell Mike, Hal and Danielle what it was like to take their first bump, if they feel like they could work a legitimate match and whether they plan to continue wrestling in the future.

GLOW begins streaming on Netflix on June 23rd.

WWE has got us incredibly excited for Samoa Joe vs. Brock Lesnar!

Paul Heyman has done his job to sell the match as the dream encounter that it is and we can’t wait to go along for the ride.

Plus, Smackdown’s tag and women’s divisions are both so much fun right now. Hopefully that rubs off on RAW soon?

And Danielle finally gets to talk about Lucha Underground once again (and Hal gets to try and figure out what she’s explaining)

Main Event:

Money! Money, money monaaaaaaay!

Money in the Bank is this Sunday! We’ll talk about our favorite winners of the big event, the best cash-ins and what we think about it being a brand exclusive pay per view for the first time ever.

Joe’s gonna kill you!

It took a little while, but Samoa Joe is officially in the main event spotlight, where he deserves to be! He’ll face Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship… and probably lose, but for right now, this is AWESOME!

Plus, what ever happened with Bayley? How did the RAW women’s division get to be such a rudderless ship?

On the flip side, we think Smackdown’s women’s division is looking great! They’ve got a shiny new Money in the Bank briefcase to fight over AND they’ve just debuted Lana as a title contender. We’ll explain why we’re on board.

Main Event:

Out of WWE’s 13 titles across all of its respective brands, only one of them is portrayed as a hero or babyface. Does the WWE have a problem with creating compelling good guys? And just what makes for an effective crowd-favorite these days?

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over the release of Tekken 7, starring characters from New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Mike put over the newest episode of Corny’s driv-thru..

Hal put over the latest episode of Something to Wrestle with Bruce Prichard.

Since this week’s storyline developments from WWE were lacking, at least there were some pretty solid matches.

Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins had a great RAW main-event match; Finn Balor and Samoa Joe are looking great going into Extreme Rules; Bray Wyatt… is at least doing stuff.

Plus: The New Day returned and set their sights on the Usos! Alexa Bliss was forced to try to make a bad segment work! The first ever Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match is coming!

And we’ll even talk a little bit about New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Battle of Super Juniors tournament (fair warning: we haven’t seen much of it).

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over Brie Bella low-key mentioning that she wanted to return to the ring.

Mike put over The recent Table for Three featuring Eric Bischoff, Michael Hayes and Jim Cornette..

Hal put over Dolph Ziggler explaining how he could be the winner of Money in the Bank.

All hail the Maharaja!

Jinder Mahal is officially the WWE champion! His big win the biggest shocker from BackLash on Sunday, and it seems like fans are divided on whether it’s a good thing. We’ll explain why we’re firmly on board to enjoy this ride as long as it lasts.

But there were also some great pure wrestling matches from WWE this week. AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens may have been the best match on Sunday, but Pete Dunn vs. Tyler Bate may have been the best match of the weekend.

Plus, we’ll talk about the possibility of Finn Balor vs. Brock Lesnar, the upcoming Money in the Bank PPV and Mike’s plan to make Goldust vs. R-Truth interesting.

Biz and Theresa wonder if we're putting too much or too little weight on our kids' actual ages. Every time our older kids reach a new age, it seems younger than we imagined it would be, and our younger kids -- no matter how old they get -- always seem little compared to our big kids. When we set limits and expectations based on our kids' ages, it always somehow feels totally arbitrary! Plus, Biz acts like she cares, Theresa solves the formula, and we talk to actresses and moms Kimmy Gatewood and Rebecca Johnson about Glow, the new Netflix series about lady wrestlers.

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.
