Rachel Sam Evans joins the crew once again to discuss the man they call Bill Goldberg.
And Hal opens the show telling the story about the time that Goldberg did him a major favor for his job… by putting him in a fireman’s carry.
And Goldberg’s appearance has a lot of fans split. But the Nation of Conversation will explain why his upcoming match with Brock Lesnar could be a lot of fun… as long as the competitors don’t fall into the same traps that plagued the LAST time they wrestled.
Plus, the man with no chin got himself a big win; The team discusses why James Ellsworth continues to be one of the most compelling characters on WWE television.
All that, including a look at the various tournaments of WWE, why Mike is incredibly disappointed with the Cruiserweight division, why Survivor Series is the only Big-4 Pay-per-view that’s seriously lacking an identity.
The three count:
Mike put over Baron Corbin speaking from the heart on Talking Smack.
Rachel put over Paul Heyman getting catty about Bill Goldberg.
