Get your Retribution names sorted and your family tree organized!
Hal, Danielle and Lindsey discuss the debut of Slapjack, Mace and T-Bar from WWE’s masked faction. Those names are just as awkward as they sound, but we’ll try to have fun with it all the same.
On the positive side, WWE has a ton of new names involved in title matches. Zelina Vega and Nikki Cross are finally getting a bigger stage for their respective shows’ women’s titles, which should be a lot of fun. But even better: Candice LeRae and Kyle O’Reilly from NXT have been thrust into title contention for the next TakeOver.
All of that, plus highlights from the G1 Climax and whether or not we care about Cody Rhodes’ brief return to AEW before he goes off to bubbles unknown to host a game show.
The first family of wrestling isn’t the McMahons or the Rhodes’; you could make a much better case that it’s the Anoa’i family and all the wrestlers it’s produced over the years. Wit this family of Samoans in the spotlight this Sunday as Roman Reigns takes on Jey Uso, we’ll discuss the family tree and our favorite memories of seeing them wrestle.
