This week Hal and Danielle are joined by Elby Hunktears! They’re the host of “Wrestlesplainia” podcast. Elby will talk about how her parents were actually closeted wrestling fans… for over 50 years.
This past Sunday was Fastlane. It’s normally a distinctly filler program before the main show of WrestleMania. But this year, reactions to the event were very positive! Stories and matches were strong throughout to keep everyone’s attention
The show was headlined by The Shield supposed last match together. Now that Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns are all about to be pulled into different directions, we’ll examine how WWE can be sure that they’re all used correctly (hint: none of us want another Baron Corbin match).
Perhaps the most significant narrative piece at Fastlane was Kofi Kingston’s ongoing trials on the road to his presumed match against Daniel Bryan for the WWE title. Has WWE struck the right notes as his journey continues?
All of that, plus a look at Finn Balor losing his Intercontinental title, Becky Lynch officially being added to the RAW Women’s title match (for the second time) and our excitement to RAW finally having a tag scene again.
The Three Count
Elby put over Kota Ibushi and Tetsuya Naito’s match in the New Japan Cup.
Danielle put over Mustafa Ali on The Secret Life of Muslims.
Hal put over Randy Orton’s promo on AJ Styles.
Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Elby Hunktears.
Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
