March 16, 2017

This is Episode #80 of the TJRWrestling Podcast. Brought to you by TJRWrestling.Net. Hosted by John Canton and Rey Moralde.

We are two and a half weeks away from WrestleMania 33 and per usual, we review Raw and Smackdown. And also as usual, we didn't think Raw was up to snuff. Also, we didn't think Smackdown was that hot but it did have a couple of angles we liked. Then we ran down the current and perceived WrestleMania card.

Thank you, guys! We appreciate the listen.

What topics will they never touch? What's in the future and just how big can these shows get? Also, an unexpected drop in from Bruce Prichard himself!

March 9, 2017

This is Episode #78 of the TJRWrestling Podcast. Brought to you by TJRWrestling.Net. Hosted by John Canton and Rey Moralde.

Fastlane is done and no more PPVs until WrestleMania! We didn't necessarily think Fastlane was a great show and we talked about why. We did like Raw a little bit more and considering our feelings towards the Monday night show, it's a bit refreshing. This is the first of two podcasts this week.

Here we go! This is Episode #76 of the TJRWrestling Podcast. Brought to you by TJRWrestling.Net. Hosted by John Canton and Rey Moralde.

Lots of news going on, including Diamond Dallas Page going to the WWE Hall of Fame. Also, we talk about Raw (which has been better as of late) and Smackdown (which continues to be consistently good). What direction is Kevin Owens going? Which road is Raw taking on the way to WrestleMania. And what about Smackdown? Even with a botch, which fork of the road is Smackdown taking on the way to Mania? Lots of questions and we like our WWE that way.

Also, rest in peace, Ivan Koloff, George "The Animal" Steele, and Nicole Bass.

The Match Beyond: Episode 18 - The Bullet Club Jumped The Shark, The Dilemmas For Both WWE Champions, WWE’s Booking of Live Events & Brock Lesnar

February 20, 2017

This week on The Match Beyond podcast, Hank and Mark McAllen join me to discuss the following topics. We start with the latest news on The Bullet Club in Ring of Honor and has the stable officially jumped the shark? Warning, Spoilers included in this portion of the discussion. After that, we transition to the dilemmas facing the current Universal and World Champions in WWE. Now that Kevin Owens has changed to a cold blooded heel and has some much needed momentum, how can they get him past Goldberg and not waste what was an incredible turn on Chris Jericho? As for Bray Wyatt, is it officially his time now? After two clean pins on John Cena and another one on AJ Styles inside Elimination Chamber, will WWE finally go with him as "they guy" on Smackdown. How does Luke Harper, Randy Orton, and AJ as well, fit into the title picture? A lot of interesting possibilities we throw out on this particular question. Finally, I went to a Live Event on Friday that involved Brock Lesnar and it really left me wondering what was the point of bringing him in for the show. I discuss his involvement on the show and then the three of us discuss how to make live events feel important and want fans to come out more and more. Thanks for all the feedback as of late and please continue to send it to me via Twitter, @KTankTMB!
