We begin the show breaking down the G1 after nights twelve and thirteen. Dave looks at the standings and tries to figure out where it’s going. We then talk about Cain Velasquez’s pro wrestling debut at TripleMania and Dave compares his performance to other first time wrestlers who were stars in another sport. He then looks at the entire show.
We talk about the Cyborg vs Dana White situation as well as the UFC Newark main event. We talk about Jim Smallman’s role with WWE. We look at the WWE Network and the loss of subscribers over this year. We discuss the Rock’s quote about his pro wrestling career as well as Roman Reigns’ role in the new Hobbs and Shaw movie. Lastly, Dave answers a question about unions in pro wrestling.
