Hal, Danielle and Lindsey are ready to discuss everything from the week in wrestling starting with NXT TakeOver 31. A fine show as always, but why does it feel like everyone on the show has had their titles forever? Is that just our impatient quarantine brain talking or is it actually a problem?
Plus, we’ll get into the return of Ember Moon and how stacked the NXT women’s division is.
And we haven’t forgotten about AEW which celebrated a new champion and the 30th anniversary of Chris Jericho via some very memorable cameo requests (which we’re happy to add to here)
We’ve waited a while for Mustafa Ali to get his big break and now he’s finally got it: He’s officially the leader of Retribution. How confident are we that this will lead to a major boost for him? And does his new found turn speak to how poorly WWE is able to write straight forward babyfaces in a way that gets the audience to cheer for them?
The Three Count
Hal put over the Chris Jericho anniversary celebration.
