In this week's episode, we decide to take a look back to where the idea of Apron Work Podcast all began in honor of the WrestleMania 35 travel packages becoming available this week. In 2016, the three of us went to our first (and only) WrestleMania in Dallas, Texas, as we purchased our tickets through the WWE travel package. We remember the events that surrounded that trip for us, speak on our experiences and explain if we felt it was worth it or not. We also tell some stories surrounding Walton being drunk and Respass wearing Philadelphia 76ers pajama pants to the airport to kick WrestleMania week off the right way.

In this week's episode, we take a moment to discuss the recent events that included Roman Reigns leukemia announcement, Austin Aries taking his ball and going home at Bound for Glory and the upcoming news of John Cena refusing to work Crown Jewel and needing a way to write him out of the World Cup tournament. These events led us to our topic of the week, which included an extreme amount of input from Peach, of moments in wrestling when you were confused on whether or not you were seeing something real or a story-line. Moments that were brought up was when Jerry "The King" Lawler had a heart attack on live TV, Mark Henry's "retirement" speech in that famous salmon suit coat and the Montreal Screw Job.

In this week's episode, we push right through "The Peach Pit" trilogy into the fourth edition that nobody asked us for. We kick things off discussing Respass' old attempts at websites using Angelfire.com and Peach shows up for his second episode in a row to ask hard hitting questions that seem to revolve a lot around fantasy football and if a wrestling version of it would work. Peach also asks what can be done to get more people into watching wrestling now and what do we think Fox is going to be looking for when they begin to air SmackDown.

In this week's episode, we have huge news...WE FOUND PEACH! That is right! Peach is back and that means our B host is here to talk about WWE's B show, SmackDown. SmackDown reaches a milestone of their 1000th episode and that means we were discussing the history of SmackDown. Respass posted three questions on Reddit and Twitter about SmackDown, which included about who you would associate with SmackDown other than The Rock, your favorite announce team in its history and the most memorable moment on an episode. Before we read off these answers, we discussed our own answers to these questions, talked about what has been announced and rumored for SmackDown 1000 and much, much more.

In this week's episode, we experience yet another week of unforeseen circumstances that caused another last-minute switch in the subject for the week and, which has us very worried, we still can't seem to find Peach. We found ourselves a little more prepared for this week's impromptu change and decided to focus on the professional wrestling style ending that happened at UFC 229 this past Saturday night between Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Respass gives his conspiracy theory on what he thinks actually happened that night and we look into why we believe MMA fans have such disdain for pro wrestling. We also look into some wrestlers and fighters of the past who have crossed over to one side or the other and talk about if we believe McGregor will ever step foot in a WWE ring.

In this week's episode, unforeseen circumstances caused a last minute switch in the subject for the week and to make matters worse, we still can't seem to find Peach. Regardless of the change, we decided to discuss the rumor of Shawn Michaels probably coming out of retirement to wrestle at Crown Jewel, the next event in Saudi Arabia. We give our opinions on retirement in wrestling, if and when it is appropriate to unretire, who we would like to see Michaels feud with and the rumor about The Rock possibly being champion in 2019 leading into yet another event set in Saudi Arabia. As Walton attempted to force more topics into the episode, we also discussed New Japan Pro Wrestling's Fighting Spirit Unleashed, Cody Rhodes' position in the wrestling world and whether or not wrestlers have agents.

In this week's episode, we take a play out of the Hell In A Cell 2018 playbook and talk about the WORST wrestling PPV endings in our opinions. Unfortunately, we were once again without the in-depth analysis of Peach. We talked about PPVs in the history of wrestling that had awful endings and either ruined the event or added to an already awful card. We both took the idea of what makes a wrestling PPV ending horrible in different directions which led to some serious debating. One of the most interesting debates involved which of the last two Philadelphia Royal Rumble endings was the worst one, you may be surprised to hear that we did not agree on this one.

In this week's episode, without the in-depth analysis of Peach, we celebrate Paul Heyman's recent birthday and the rumor that Vince McMahon is planning on using more managers by taking a deeper look into its missing role recently in professional wrestling. We posed a question to our social media accounts, asking them "If you could match up any manager in the history of wrestling (current managers included) with a group of any four members of the current WWE/205 Live/NXT/NXT UK roster, who would they be and why?" and discuss some of the responses that we received as well as our very own responses to the question. Also, we got off topic plenty of times by mostly discussing stables and the Hell In A Cell PPV, which we were watching at the time of recording.

In this week's episode, we follow the hype surrounding ALL IN with an interesting topic of discussion. We decided to come up with our top matches that we would show a non-wrestling fan (or former wrestling fan) to pique their interest enough to have them cross over to the dark side. The initial idea was to have the person only be able to see the pre-match video package, the match itself and the post-match shenanigans without any added information and have them see what wrestling can truly be. We found ourselves going a bit off topic and asked Peach what matches would get him interested in wrestling a bit more, as he is still a filthy casual, but it led to an engaging conversation.

In this week's episode, we discuss the results of the show funded by Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks, ALL IN. A night that was already a historic night for the independent wrestling scene before the first bell rang, ended up being a huge night for the world of professional wrestling as a whole and we feel may be a glimpse into the future of the business. Although we never did get those ticket donations to see the show live in Chicago, we did still give our reactions of how we felt about each match from ALL IN, including the Zero Hour pre-show, and some of our favorite moments of the whole show. We also find out if Peach actually watched ALL IN and if so, how much of it did he watch!? Tune in to find out!

We apologize for the lack of audio quality when Respass speaks throughout the episode. Apparently his headset's microphone was accidentally used when recording instead of the microphone he normally uses to record with. It is encouraged to leave negative comments about Respass instead of Walton this week due of this mistake.
