As the world turns, we may as well keep enjoying wrestling.
This week, the team discusses live-audiences “hijacking” WWE TV. When is it acceptable? And when does it just get in the way of how good the product can be?
Plus: Tons of stories are being built towards Survivor Series. We’ll take a look at Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, the cruiserweight division and anyone else who will be involved in WWE’s only Sunday show in November.
And comedian and newly minted author Asterios Kokkinos joins the show to tell us about his special wrestler: Daniel Bryan.
Asterios has a new book out: Toys 4 Cheap Catalog: The Magic of Toys Will Shut Up Your Child.
The three count:
Danielle put over Sasha Banks and Bayley as her OTP.
Mike put over Kurt Angle on The Steve Austin Show podcast.
Hal put over The magic that is the big bad booty daddy, Scott Steiner.
