Danielle and Lindsey are ready to breakdown the final shows before WWE’s Royal Rumble show! No matter how we’re feeling about the current WWE product, the Rumble always seems to draw back the audience at large. Why? Because it’s the formal start of WrestleMania season and consequential stories in WWE!
But there are also stories in AEW to take note of. But things seem to be going awry in the house that Tony Khan built, at least from the storytelling perspective. We’ll explain why we’re feeling unsure about Dynamite’s direction, while still voicing our optimism that their eventual move to two nights a week could be great for them.
Finally, we’ll talk about NXT. It continues to be a great and successful show week in and week out. Between the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic and Keith Lee as the new North American Champion, there’s a lot to love. And that includes Finn Balor’s….appearance in his match this week. We’ll explain.
The Three Count
Lindsey put over Becky Lynch on WWE Backstage.
Julian put over these pictures from Keith Lee across the years in WWE.
Danielle put over the Big E’s dream match from the Feel The Power podcast.
