Jason tries a new format and Steve immediately points out how invalid it is. Plus: Is hotshotting the titles around a good idea? Did the SummerSlam Big Beefy Boy Smashfest deliver? Are we looking at a squash match at No Mercy? Is Braun Strowman big enough to hide Samoa Joe for an entire match? How is Chad Gable’s spatial awareness? And can Kevin Owens find a special referee, or is he too Kevin Owens to get it done?
The lesser of the big two is here, it’s time for SummerSlam! Join Jason and Steve as they praise Titus Worldwide for the joy and wonder that they bring to the world, ask just when the Intercontinental Title will be defended again, plead that we all get on the same page when a MITB cash-in is made, predict a Carmella cash-in, fantasy book Shane-o-mac’s Precarious Structure Vision, ponder whether or not the Jindtourage will grow again, and convince each other that the new Universal champion will look good with the strap.
Returning from injury, Pro Grapplers is back and man is there a lot to catch up on! Braun and KO are still awesome, SummerSlam is still taking shape, and Randy Orton is still winning matches, for some reason. Nothing has changed, but welcome back, on the road to SummerSlam (and TakeOver)!
It’s our SummerSlam post-show look back and really, we’re just concerned for both Randy Orton and Sasha Banks. And Finn Balor. And the careers of anyone on the pre-show. Also, our Power Rankings present a shocker of a number one pick in The Miz (thanks to his blazing promo on none other than his former NXT pro/mentor, Daniel Bryan). Guess that’s what you get when the student becomes the master. Watch those elbows and listen to this, the best-of-seven series of shows!
