On this W2M EXTRA, we do a WWE Money in the Bank 2016 Review and a NJPW Dominion 2016 Review as well.
Due to Father’s Day, everyone’s schedules didn’t match up on our normal
night, but don’t fret, because we are still doing this podcast and our
regular Tuesday one as well.
On a memorable night for both companies, WWE and NJPW put on two
enjoyable shows and we are here to discuss them. What did we like? What
wasn’t so great? What was the best match on both shows? Did the Money
Bank contract get
cashed-in? How did the first ever Ladder Match in NJPW history turn out?
Plus, we have our final ratings for both events as well.
Gary, Sean, and Paul do the WWE Money in the Bank 2016 Review, then the
guys are joined by Longtime wrestling fan and our NJPW correspondent Tom
Reese for the NJPW Dominion 2016 Review as well. So, much to talk
about from these events. You don’t want to miss it.
