This was one of the bleakest weeks in wrestling history. WWE announced sweeping layoffs that affected tons of people behind the scenes, including locker room favorites and people that were involved in WrestleMania. It’s hard to even know where to begin but, like most of you are, we’re just really sad.
We’ll be bummed for a bit and express hope that they’ll be set for greener pastures once the world returns to a friendlier space for international wrestling.
As if that wasn’t enough we’ll also discuss the career of Howard Finkel who unfortunately died a few days ago.
And, as hard as it is, we’ll try to have some laughs at the regular silliness that happened on the wrestling TV shows this week.
