This week, Danielle and Lindsey are rejoined by LaToya Ferguson. She’s the author of the brand new book "An Encyclopedia of Women’s Wrestling: 100 Profiles of the Strongest in the Sport." In it she details some of wrestling’s most important and impressive female athletes through the years, from Act Yasukawa to Wendi Richter.

The panel will also discuss Money in the Bank. As WWE’s first PPV after WrestleMania, it had the responsibility of setting the tone for the future narratives of the company, which it did in some ways we’re excited about and in others that we’re less sure about.

In good news: Bayley won the Money in the Bank ladder match and used it on the same night to become the Smackdown Women’s Champion. But now that Becky is one title short, what will the story be going forward? Should Bayley and Becky have a match or is The Man going to focus on RAW and take on Lacey Evans.

Plus, while Brock Lesnar returning to win the men’s Money in the Bank Briefcase disappointed many, Lindsey will explain why she’s actually okay with this version of the Beast involved in WWE programing.

All of this… plus a look at WWE’s newest accolade: The 24/7 Championship.

The Three Count

Latoya put over the all-women promotion Rise.

Lindsey put over Paul Heyman’s promo on RAW.

Danielle put over Ali’s tweet about his match with Andrade.

Hosted by Danielle Radford and Lindsey Kelk and LaToya Ferguson.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

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.

Breaking In

This week Ricky, April, and Alonso are joined by TV critic at The A.V. Club, Consequence of Sound, and IndieWire, LaToya Ferguson. They discuss the new Gabrielle Union joint Breaking In (And yes, Ricky does make a Breakin' joke, don't worry). LaToya is convinced that despite the tepid reaction, this is going to be the next Fast and the Furious franchise. The crew discusses their favorite home invasion thrillers, and what makes the genre thrive. Plus, since they have a TV expert on the show, they all discuss the TV shows that were made into movies - the good and the bad. You'll be happy to know, Alonso does find an ally in his campaign for Josie and the Pussycats. And as always, we have our staff picks.

In news, someone live tweeted Greta Gerwig at the movie theater, 82 women rally at the Cannes film festival, Dave Matthews is a fan of Lady Bird, and Bryan Fuller is not happy about the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer.

Weekly Movie Recommendations:

Ricky - Panic Room
LaToya - Tully
April - Sisters
Alonso - Mahogany

PLUS, we have two Spotify playlists. One is for Movie Soundtracks and the other is for Movie Scores. Check 'em out!

Next week we're discussing Deadpool 2.

With Alonso Duralde, April Wolfe, LaToya Ferguson and Ricky Carmona.
