Podcast Episode 450: AEW Hits a Grand Slam!

Man oh man, is it a great time to be a professional wrestling fan, or what?

Derek catches back up with the usual crew to talk about the paradigm shift in the pro wrestling landscape as AEW continues to deliver. They set a high bar with All Out, and they are really attempting to live up to it with free PPV-style cards on their weekly TNT shows. This week, they’re bringing it with AEW Grand Slam from Arthur Ashe Stadium. We break down the results of night one and talk about what’s coming up with night two.

Meanwhile, NXT has gone through a rebranding exercise and has come out the other side as NXT 2.0. Ratings have been sliding overall, and the powers that be have decided to take things over. With a focus on new homegrown talent, will they bring more eyes to the product and cement their place once again in the pro wrestling landscape?

About Joshua Schlag

For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years. Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us. It's still real to me, dammit!
