It’s the first WWE Big 4 Weekend of the year!
First Lindsey and Danielle break down NXT TakeOver: Worlds Collide. There were plenty of great matches, but the event did highlight a problem WWE has with the presentation of foreign wrestlers. For instance: Do we really need the faux fascist imagery of Imperium to sell their dominance?
Then it’s time for a deep dive into the Royal Rumble. For the third year, it was highlighted by a men’s and women’s iteration of the event, each won by Charlotte Flair and Drew McIntyre, respectively. What were some of the best moments? What did the team think about the direction of these two very different showcases?
Plus, a look at the amazing and momentous returns from the show, who’s really improved on the mic on AEW and why Finn still showcases his finer points EVERY week on NXT
The Three Count
Lindsey put over Ref Aubrey’s tweets about her mental health.
