Another week and sadly once again we are talking about another wrestler passing away. So, this time, we have to discuss Joanie Laurer, better known to most as Chyna died at age 45 a few days ago. She certainly was a pioneer for the WWE and wrestling in so many ways. So, on today’s show we discuss what she meant to the business, what she did for women in wrestling, being a part of D-Generation X, our favorite Chyna moments, and anything else that comes to mind. R.I.P. Chyna

We also get into the

Wrestling 2 the MAX Episode 191 Pt. 1: WWE RAW in London, TNA’s Dire Financial Situation, Japan Earthquakes, & More.

What? A regular W2M episode on Monday night? Yes, you are reading that right. After much discussion amongst the loyal listeners, ourselves, and just the changing landscape in wrestling podcasts in general, we’ve decided to go to two shows a week. So, expect a new episode every Tuesday and Friday morning going forward.

Welcome to the new Tuesday morning edition of W2M, where we go in-depth on RAW, (which this week emanated from London, England,) discussing the big topics to come out of the

show, go through what stood out, what was a little lame, and of course we round it all out with a final rating for the show as well.

We have a special topic on the biggest news over the weekend, which is the ever evolving story about TNA. Will TNA be sold within the next couple of months? Can new investors really save the company at this point? Do they need to re-brand? What could they really do to stand out in today’s world of wrestling? What does it say about TNA that Panda Energy apparently separated itself from TNA up to five years ago. We try to answer as many of these questions as we can.

Finally, we go into the wrestling news that’s happened over the weekend in “Quick Hits,” where we discuss New Japan cancelling Wrestling Hinokuni (4/29) because of the Earthquakes in Kumamoto and what Gedo could do to still have that show somewhere else. There’s also the Adam Rose and Konnor wellness suspensions, WWE announces the first set of Global Cruiserweight Series matches, Total Bellas being real, the announcement of the first Global Cruiserweight Series matches and more on what was a news heavy couple of days.

If you enjoyed the show, subscribe via I-Tunes, Stitcher, Tune-In, Youtube (Via the W2M Network Channel) or wherever podcasts are available. Be sure to leave us a rating and a review as well.

You can always send us any feedback or listener questions via email or via voicemail by calling us at (972)-591-8620. You can always try listening to us LIVE at Midnight ET on Monday nights or Thursday nights via the Spreaker website.
