In the time that Hal has been off the show, The Miz won and lost the WWE Championship. How excited are we for Bobby Lashley now that he’s brought the top prize to The Hurt Business? And will he really hold onto it any longer than WrestleMania?
And we’ve also got plenty of other titles to discuss: Apollo Crews has a new mood and attitude as he fights for the Intercontinental Title. Plus Daniel Bryan is Roman Reigns’ newest opponent, but will it be anything more than a placeholder before Edge?
But let’s also face it: One of the biggest pieces of news was Shaq debuting in AEW! He had his tag match alongside Jade Cargill against Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet and… he actually did a fine job. Does this mean more for is in store for the AEW women? IT HAD SURE BETTER!
In the Fall of 2002, Triple H presented Vince McMahon with his latest brainchild: The Elimination Chamber. It led to a bunch of injuries, messy wrestling and a really great pop for Shawn Michaels’ last World Title win. We’ll talk about the match and why it was best experienced in a Hooters restaurant.
Danielle put over one of the best wrestling tweets of the week.
Julian put over Mega Ran’s new song for AEW Revolution.
Hal put over the Inner Circle on AEW.
