Grab that spare knee brace, and prepare to have your body parts yeeted!

RAW women’s champion Becky Lynch and AEW’s women’s champion Riho may be in very different places in their career but they both have one thing in common: They haven’t been on TV that often. But we’ve got very different reactions to their scarce appearances that we’ll explain.

Plus: NXT and AEW had their usual assortment of quality matches and story progression, including the reveal of new number one contenders. From Dynamite, we’ll explain why we’re ready for The Young Bucks to finally get their AEW Tag team championships. And on NXT, we’ll talk about Finn’s quest to make the future his past as the next NXT Champion… including a little inappropriate discussion of Keith Lee.

All of that plus some of the week’s best promos, the most awkward shoot marriage proposal in history and a reflection of the selfishness of Christmas playtime.
