Wrestling 2 the MAX Episode 165: NJPW King of Pro-Wrestling 2015 Review, WWE & ESPN, Alberto El Patron in Limbo & More
Sorry we are a day later than normal, Paul caught a bad case of food poisoning and we had to delay the show by one day.
This week on W2M, we headline with a NJPW King of Pro-Wrestling 2015 Review, discussion on WWE pretty much making the deal with EVOLVE known and also WWE's deal with ESPN as well.
However, we start with Quick Hits (9:00-39:00), where we do discuss the deal between WWE and ESPN, how it can be a benefit for both companies and if this is going to send WWE bad signals
about how RAW is actually doing. Then there's the other deal that seems to be everything but official between WWE and EVOLVE. Sami Zayn will be doing a special appearance on the EVOLVE shows this weekend and let's see how it goes from there. Alberto El Patron is also in the news for something positive and negative, plus a heck of a lot more.
We move on to our five questions about WWE RAW (39:00-72:30 or 1 hour & 12 mins,) as we also discuss the impact of the TMZ reveal about Lana and Rusev being engaged here too. Towards the end we also discuss whether or not it is good for Roman Reigns to be cutting long promos.
There's also our review of NXT (72:30- 86:15 or 1 hour & 12 mins- 1 hour & 26 mins) for the week.
This is where we do the NJPW King of Pro-Wrestling 2015 Review (86:15-115:15 or 1 hour & 26 mins- 1 hour & 55 mins,) as Sean and Paul cover the thing from the beginning to the end, discuss some of the big booking decisions, the Best of the Super Juniors Tag Tournament that's been announced, and how things look heading into Power Struggle and Wrestle Kingdom 10.
We finish things out with a look at ROH TV (115:15-121:30 or 1 hour & 55 mins- 2 hours & 1 minute) and the latest episode of TNA Impact Wrestling (121:30-128:45 or 2 hours & 1 minute- 2 hours & 8 mins).
Then it all ends as usual with the W2M Top 5 Power Rankings and Superstar of the Week (128:45-End or 2 hours & 8 mins to the end)
