Wrestling 2 the MAX Episode 198 Pt 1: Brock Lesnar at UFC 200, WWE RAW, AAA Lucha Libre World Cup, Muhammad Ali, & More
On this episode of W2M, we have a pretty packed show. We discuss what the impact is of Brock returning to UFC on WWE. Could this set a precedent where UFC and WWE work together? Could WWE receive something in return from UFC, aside from just promotion for Summerslam? We also discuss how the result of the Brock Lesnar and Mark Hunt fight could effect WWE as well.
There’s also some fallout from that, (which has seemingly been rectified right before going on-air) concerning Journalism ethics
and how UFC is being more WWE, and less sport when it comes to handling the media. Who was right in this situation? Could WWE themselves learn something from this? Or should they continue to do what they do?
Sadly we also have to talk about bad news, as boxing legend and a man that had a great effect on pro-wrestling as a whole in Muhammad Ali passed away over the weekend. We discuss what he meant to wrestling and the world in general, also Kimbo Slice, who almost started in wrestling, passed away on Monday night due to a heart failure.
There’s also WWE RAW to talk about, we do a preview and predictions for NXT Takeover: The End, Sean discusses the two AAA Lucha Libre World Cup shows, plus ROH returns to action and we have the last part of the NJPW BOSJ tournament as well.
