18th July 2019

Episode notes

This week, Danielle and Lindsey are joined by their long-absent co-host Mike Eagle! Aside from putting on a great television show The New Negroes, where has he been all this time? He’ll explain everything, including why the return of Hulk Hogan to WWE led to him swearing off the company for the foreseeable future.

But luckily for us, All Elite Wrestling’s rise has provided him with a new televised wrestling product that he’s been able to enjoy and critique. He and the team will take a close look AEW’s latest show Fight for the Fallen. That includes what’s worked about the company’s single matches so far, why the tag matches haven’t quite clicked for some of us and why Jon Moxley’s connections with Frasier is so edifying.

Hosted by Hal Lublin Danielle Radford, and Mike Eagle.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
