Danielle’s once again in the throes of some real-deal TV work and hasn’t had much time to watch wrestling. But, luckily we’ve got a Lindsey Kelk here to chat things up.
That includes NXT, which is shaping up its road to WrestleMania and TakeOver nicely. Bianca Belair lost to Charlotte Flair. With a number one contendership ladder match coming up at TakeOver, will that be Bianca’s next opportunity to shine? Or is she destined to regularly edge close to glory without going all the way?
Plus, it looks like WALTER and Imperium want the Finn Balor rub (don’t we all though?). Vague shades of fascism aside, it should be incredible. We’ll discuss it in full.
And AEW has their first PPV of 2020 coming up this month. Between the Bucks vs. Page & Omega and Nyla Rose vs. Kris Statlander, there’s a lot to get excited about. But Lindsey thinks that there are a number of things that need to be improved if we want to continue whole-heartedly embracing the land of the Elite.
All of that… and yeah, we’ll talk a little bit about Goldberg being the new Universal Champion.
The Main Event
Just as we expected, Nikki and Brie Bella are the latest inductees to the WWE Hall of Fame. And just as we expected, a whole bunch of people are big mad about it. We’ll explain why the Bellas are such transcendent stars worthy of such an honor as we recap some of the biggest moments from their careers.
The Three Count
Lindsey put over the upcoming New Japan cup tournament.
Julian put over Nyla Rose on Talk is Jericho.
Danielle put over NXT’s Melanin Magic PPV.
