Episode notes

We’re entering the final month of 2017, but there’s a lot being put in place before we’re full steam ahead on the road to WrestleMania!

Roman Reigns had his first title defense against Elias. It was a great match, but now that Samoa Joe is in the mix, where does the IC title competition go from here?

And AJ Styles is continuing his feud with Jinder Mahal. Most people want AJ to be the champ, but where does Jinder fit in now that he’s on the outs with his henchmen the Singh Brothers?

All that, plus a look at the Riott Squad and Absolution, another spotlight on the Velveteen Dream and a requiem for the Hype Bros. after they got bludgeoned by the Brothers of the Bludgeoning.

Main Event

Matt Hardy’s broken universe may finally be making a comeback! But has the window of excitement closed for the concept? What does a WWE version of the broken gimmick look like? And is there anything else in WWE that they could draw their inspiration from in the recreation of the hottest concept of 2016?
