episode 20: Ep. 21: The sun sets on a New Day

*This week’s episode was recorded on Monday evening, which means this week’s RAW and Smackdown had not occurred yet for us to discuss them.

episode 17: Ep. 18: Not all title reigns are created equal

In an effort to prove the investment into the Cruiserweight division was worthwhile, WWE finally gave the performers in the division their own show: 205 Live! And while it’s a step up from what we had before, there’s still room to improve. And some major performers on RAW seem to be changing up pushing characters in more interesting directions. How encouraging is this? We’ll try to figure that out. Plus: Not every championship reign is created equal...

As the world turns, we may as well keep enjoying wrestling. This week, the team discusses live-audiences “hijacking” WWE TV. When is it acceptable?
