Episode notes

Pod Dad Hal Lublin is finally back! And in the absence of Danielle and Lindsey, he’s hanging out with producer Julian Burrell to discuss his retrospective thoughts on all the wrestling he’s missed. That starts with the Royal Rumble and the two winners of the titular matches.

Lindsey and Danielle really and enjoyed the Rumble, a sentiment Hal and Julian share… if a little less enthusiastically. But where they completely differ is their assessment of the men’s Rumble. They’ll explain why they thought the use of Brock Lesnar worked for them so well.

Plus, Cody Rhodes delivered what Hal considered the most affecting wrestling moment Hal has ever seen on television. And Julian is excited to see the collision of the Queen, the NXT Champion and the EST of NXT.

And we’re also proud to introduce you to the Wrestling Cinematic Universe and all of the possibilities that it holds for our heroes (hint: a lot of dentists).

The Three Count

Julian put over Frank Turner’s wrestling fandom and Dr.Chris Raynor’s explanation of Edge’s surgery.

Hal put over the Britt Baker’s promo.

Hosted by Hal Lublin and Julian Burrell

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
