This week, Danielle steps into the hosting seat with Mike and Hal absent.
In their place are the newest members of the Nation of Conversation: Des Delgadillo, the famous blind wrestling fan, and Jay Washington, a former wrestler and a current internet personality.
The new team will discuss Roman Reigns and John Cena’s face-off, Alexa Bliss winning the title back from Sasha Banks and Finn Balor’s feud with Bray Wyatt continuing, post demon.
Earlier this week at TripleMania, Sexy Star went into business for herself as she finished her match with Rosemary: Sexy applied a legitimate arm bar to Rosemary and refused to release it even after the match ended. We’ll discuss how this violates the trusts that wrestlers place in one another and what it means for Sexy Star’s career.
Plus: there’s been a ton of injuries in the WWE this year. Now that Xavier Woods and Samoa Joe have joined that club, we’ll take a look at why this might be happening and how bad it could be for some of these wrestler’s careers.
