Episode notes

Intensity! Integrity! Intelligence! Interracial love!

Kurt Angle has been dominating the headlines for one reason: he’s Jason Jordan’s fake white dad. And that… is really weird. But we’ll talk about why it could be a great chance for Jason Jordan to get some star power.

Plus, RAW has actually had some really compelling stuff lately, especially in their Universal Title scene which features Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe, Brock Lesnar and Braun Strowman.

But Smackdown? Between the Punjabi Prison match and canceling Talking Smack, we’ll talk about why the Blue Brand has seen better days.

Gimmick Corner

In his early main-roster WWE career, Neville was a high-flier with a generic good guy attitude and a cape. But he’s since joined 205 Live with one of the best role-changes in recent memory. We’ll talk all about why the King of the Cruiserweights is so great.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Mike Eagle.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
