This week, Nick (@nickpiccone) and Vaughn (@VaughnMJohnson) discuss the historic less-than-an-hour sellout of independent wrestling's biggest show of the year, All In, which takes place on September 1st at the Sears Centre in suburban Chicago. The guys talk about what went into making this professional wrestling event and what it means for the near future of independent wrestling if this event exceeds expectations, which it looks like it already has.
Then the guys discuss WWE's television rights with the new report of NBCUniversal possibly letting SmackDown Live go to an open bid should they reach a new deal with WWE.
Hulk Hogan apologized again for the language he used during a secretly recorded conversation, but he isn't making himself look any better. The guys discuss whether or not Hogan in the WWE in 2018 really provides any extra motivation to watch.
And, finally, the topic of Ronda Rousey closes out the show. Rousey has been challenged by Nia Jax, the Raw Women's Champion, to a championship match at Money in the Bank. Surely this will go over well with many wrestling fans! The guys discuss their thoughts and what it could mean for the women's division moving forward not only on Raw, but also SmackDown.
