Wrestling 2 the MAX Episode 169: NXT Overrated? NJPW Power Struggle 2015 Review & 2015 Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame
This week on W2M, we are joined by longtime wrestling fan (since 1984) Tom Reese for a majority of the show. On this episode, we discuss some of the inductees into the 2015 Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame. Who got in? Who was left out for another year? And should current wrestlers like Shinsuke Nakamura and Brock Lesnar be able to get into the HOF? We also have a NJPW Power Struggle 2015 Review and a look ahead to the NJPW World Tag League that is a mere few weeks away, along with all the stuff
we usually cover.
We did have a call-in pretty much at the beginning of the show and with him we discussed the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Tournament and some things we like on the WWE Network. We apologize, but that portion took up the first 20 minutes of the show (2:00-20:35 to be exact.)
There was news that happened and that will be covered in Quick Hits (20:35-42:55,) with us discussing if a former wrestler is right or wrong about NXT being overrated, Is NXT overrated? find out what we think right here. There's also Michael Elgin resigning with ROH, WWE being interested in The Kingdom, Taryn Terrell continuing to say things about Christianity and wrestling, and much more.
Then we get into our questions about this week’s WWE RAW (42:55- 1:19:40) and also get into this week’s NXT (1:19:40- 1:31:45) as well.
After that, we take a look at this week’s ROH TV (1:31:45- 1:41:00) and we also do our NJPW Power Struggle 2015 Review (1:41:00-2:08:55,) where we give our thoughts on all the matches, including a fantastic match between Tomohiro Ishii and Tomoaki Honma for the NEVER Openweight Title.
After that, we give our thoughts on who was inducted into the 2015 Wrestling Observer HOF (2:08:55- 2:19:00) and if some other guys on the ballot should have been in there instead.
We finish things out with a look ahead to the NJPW World Tag League (2:19:00-2:23:30) and our thoughts on this week's TNA Impact Wrestling (2:23:30-2:30:40) and the continuing World Title Series.
Then we end it with our W2M Power Rankings (2:30:40-End) and our Superstar of the Month and Match of the Month for October.
