What a wild week it’s been! CM Punk, Becky Lynch and Brock Lesnar all returned to wrestling within 24 hours of each other. And while we love seeing people cheer and shed some real tears over their heroes returning, these returns did come with their own unique concerns. We’ll discuss!

Plus, while not everything was perfect at SummerSlam (we’re looking squarely at the Smackdown women’s title), it was still a really strong show with some great matches and even a vampire!

But there was one match that stood head and shoulders above the rest and cemented itself as a bonafide contender for Match of the Year: WALTER vs. Ilja Dragunov from NXT TakeOver 36.

The Three Count:

Danielle put over  Nikki Bella’s reaction to SummerSlam.

Lindsey put over Summerslam 1991 and 1992

Hal put over Roman Reigns’ commentary in his match with John Cena.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Lindsey Kelk

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
