This week, the team is joined by LaToya Ferguson! She’s written about wrestling for The AV Club and Paste and is ready to share her thoughts on tons of the biggest happenings in wrestling.

That includes LaToya’s renewed anxiety about the women’s division slipping back into some Divas era tendencies like shorter matches with as many competitors as possible shoved into the ring. The team will set it straight that this doesn’t make for quality showing, especially as roads lead up to Evolution.

Plus, many indications are that Braun Strowman is leading into heelish tendencies. But how good of an idea is that when he’s really over with the audience? And speaking of which, has WWE corrected course with Becky Lynch and learned that having her antagonize the audience is a losing game?

All of that and the team will finally, definitively explain what Baron Corbin’s outfit makes them think of. Seriously, you’ll never be able to look at him the same way again.

The Three Count

LaToya put over Kevin Nash’s Paparazzi Productions.

Danielle put over Hal Lublin at Dragon Con.

Mike put over Danielle Radford on Patreon.

Hal put over Mike’s upcoming tour dates in the U.S. and Europe through November.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford, Mike Eagle and LaToya Ferguson.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

This week, Hal, Danielle and Mike are joined by Meghan Sullivan, formerly from IGN! They'll breakdown the news from NXT: TakeOver Brooklyn 4 and SummerSlam.

Ep. 105: The 2018 NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4 and SummerSlam Special w/ Meghan Sullivan

This week, the team is joined by Meghan Sullivan! She’s a 12-year alumna of IGN, the internet’s biggest video-game website. Most of her coworkers there weren’t big wrestling fans, but she joins Hal, Danielle and Mike to let her mark flag fly.

NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4

For the third consecutive time, Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano headlined TakeOver. This time it was a last man standing match for the NXT championship. Mike was there live and he can confirm that there was a pocket of the audience chanting “Johnny Loser” in the aftermath of the match. So is it time to give this feud time to breath?

Plus, we’ll highlight the other big matches of the show, including two title changes and why we’re so nervous for some of the brand’s MVP’s to be moved up to the main roster.

SummerSlam

It’s WWE’s second biggest show of the year, and the reviews have actually been great, both from the internet and from the team.

Roman Reigns is now the Universal Champion after beating Brock Lesnar (fifth time’s the charm!). But where does this leave Money in the Bank holder Braun Strowman, especially now that the Shield is back together and ready to run roughshod on WWE once again?

Plus, what other title changes did the group think made a lot of sense? And just what was it about this show that led to so many great matches throughout the card, in spite of some slightly wonky finishes?

All that… and why Meghan and Danielle are ready for Samoa Joe to forever refer to himself as Daddy.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford, Mike Eagle and Meghan Sullivan.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

You can keep up with Meghan on Instagram and on Twitch!

Hal, Danielle and Lindsey will look ahead to the biggest things happening ; that includes the Miz vs. Daniel Bryan, the next installment of Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa and (hopefully) the final installment of Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns.

She talks to the team all about her unique promos, what it’s like being best friends with Kairi Sane and why she believes in living a full life beyond just wrestling.

WWE's made tournaments a regular part of their network. There's been one based on the Cruiserweights, the United Kingdom, tag teams and more. 

But the Mae Young Classic isn't just a way to continue that idea; it's WWE's most prolific showcase of women's wrestling yet.

Our two-lady team is ready to sit down together and digest everything they enjoyed from the tournament, what could have been done better and why this should be the first WWE tournament to come back for a repeat performance.

Hosted by Danielle Radford and Lindsey Kelk.
