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.

In this week's episode, we had the pleasure of talking to the creator of "Book It! The Wrestling Promoter Card Game", Paul LaPorte. This game has been successfully funded on Kickstarter and is a few short months away from being released to its backers (which Respass is one of) and through retail. We talk to Paul about a wide array of things ranging from details about his inspirations for the game and how to play it to his experience on the independent wrestling scene which includes his current positions with Truly Independent Wrestling (T.I.W.) based out of Lanesborough, MA. We also discuss the recent SummerSlam weekend events, the upcoming All-In and the current wrestling product as a whole.

In this week's episode, we attempted at something different. We tried to give you the best live reactions to each SummerSlam match as we could by recording little segments at the end of every match to give you our instant reaction and then recorded our overall reaction at the very end. Unfortunately, due to some technical difficulties, we did not get our NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV reactions in as well. We did have a few fellow listeners in the background with us which they contributed about as much to the podcast as Peach has most weeks.

In this week's three-part episode, we discuss the fast-approaching SummerSlam weekend. We are joined by a familiar guest from "The Opie and Friends Show" on YouTube, Jeremy Culver, for part three of this episode which focuses on the NXT matches included on NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4's card, as well as a short discussion to begin the episode about New Japan Pro-Wrestling's G1 Climax between Jer and Walton. With the limited knowledge of Jer with recent NXT programming, Respass with the G1 Climax tournament and Peach with wrestling in general, this episode had all the makings of a truly interesting episode.

This episode was originally recorded on August 12, 2018, which was prior to the go-home show for NXT for SummerSlam weekend. Planned matches, storylines, and angles are all subject to possible changes at the time of this recording.
