This week, our friend John Walsh (better known as Super Eyepatch Wolf on YouTube) rejoins us all the way from Ireland. We’ll chat for a bit about how the apocalypse is affecting the people in his country when… Oh yeah, wrestling!
Since its inception AEW has done a lot of things right. But one thing that its consistently come short on is its women’s division. And while we’ve gotten used to the brief matches and limited character moments, it’s lately gotten worse. A women’s tag tournament with no TV time and a women’s fan community behind a $50 paywall pushed us to our limits and we’ve gotta talk about it.
The Main Event:
It was one of the longest running and transformative stories in the history of international wrestling: Kenny Omega and Kota Ibushi as the Golden Lovers. We’ll discuss why the story of these two was so affecting from the fight, the union, the separation, the reunion and second separation.
