Episode 96: The NXT TakeOver Chicago II and Money in the Bank Special

Episode 96

21st June 2018

Danielle, Mike and Lindsey discuss everything that happened at NXT TakeOver, Money in the Bank, and when the New Day faced the Elite in Street Fighter at E3.

Episode notes

What a week of wrestling it’s been!

And not just because of WWE; we’re still basking in the afterglow of New Japan Dominion and Kenny Omega finally capturing the IWGP World Heavyweight. But Kenny’s big month wasn’t done there; he traveled to Los Angeles with the Young Bucks to take on the New Day in Street Fighter at E3! And our own Mike Eagle was there live to watch the whole thing happen. He’ll tell us all about and explain what he did with the Pancake he caught from Xavier Woods at the event.

NXT TakeOver: Chicago II

Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano’s feud of the year continues, Aleister Black and the NXT Title once again are left out of the main event spot, Undisputed Era had a really fun bout with One Lorcan and Danny Burch, and Shayna Baszler gave Nikki Cross the collapse into unconsciousness that she longed for.

We’re running down everything… including Velveteen Dream’s gear choice in his match against Ricochet.

Money In The Bank

In the last week, we’ve crowned new champions in Alexa Bliss and Dolph Ziggler and have a new Monster in the Bank in Braun Strowman.

Which stars are in the best position to be successful as we enter the second half of the year? Is Shinsuke Nakamura worse off for not having captured the WWE Championship? And what do we think of the sudden and unceremonious firing of Big Cass?

Hosted by Danielle Radford, Mike Eagle and LindseyKelk.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.
