yeah and then assuming there’s more matches announced for hell on a cell we’ll shoot our predictions video for that and not let it that tonight yeah so I’ll be fine yeah we’re looking at a pretty long workday Steve yeah that’s okay it’s well I was wrestling what you can do plus we it like the rest of the week is actually fairly easy like we get like Wednesday’s merrily doing a pretty light for a after these next couple weeks Friday’s could potentially be kind of light ish yeah exactly we got some other stuff in the pipeline juror coming back at you early in the coming weeks yeah I’ve got some new stuff coming in we got some fun stuff coming up we you know we were to rhythm and then W decide to put Smackdown on Friday nights that messed things up get used to the schedule establish a new rhythm we’ll be fine yeah it’s just it’s it’s it’s weird well it’s a bummer for us because we got do this adjust your schedule and then there’s a pay-per-view on Sunday yeah which apparently last three matches yeah announced anything let’s hope hey maybe it’ll only be three matches yeah maybe they’ll be like 20 minutes she orders pay-per-view W history like like a 36 minute paper you they’d be great well it’s like three matches in the other two hours is just a [Music] filler to build the crown jewel yeah I’m still right I’m sorry I’m still riding off the high of my twitch stream last night oh you didn’t that MF Steve here on the twitch y’all need to subscribe to my slow Wolfpack YouTube channel because the games that I played last night are going there the last game right it was a very

the description capital is in the description capital see in the capital put it in the description series any number letters none wants to hear that okay peridot no one wants to hear about 617 subscribers man I need a thousand to even begin to think about monetizing yeah well I want to do a monetize one thought you’re interested in monetizing okay good just almighty’s or something money good stories anyways thanks Cody anyways thanks everybody so yeah let’s do this let’s talk about Wow Cody spam in that chat with your that’s my man right there Cody miles the man with a plan you know he thinks he knows me you know who I think I know that on this day you see clearly yeah yeah and also edge might be returning to entering action this is what whispers in the shadows are to be believed yes or yeah that’s what Dave Meltzer is talking about he said this in the most recent news letter quote another name from the past edge that dead dead that day you think you know me he will be 46 at the end of the month man he looks fantastic you see those pictures you put up on Twitter he is jacked whoo edge yeah I didn’t know and he is great yeah man that’s cool he is super jacked uh has also had his name of the news edge got a new deal by negotiating with both sides sounds business at home there yeah and thus ended up with a significant debit be offer to stay he did a spear recently that was at SummerSlam in Toronto yeah cleared for that after years of not being cleared to do anything well does not confirmed that he will wrestle again the idea of him wrestling again has definitely been talked about very privately although we’re not sure if he can get clearance he had to retire well that’s a picture of em told mm that’s what he was king of the ring of course he had I believe spinal stenosis which is a narrowing of the spinal column had to retire after mania 27 in 2011 so yeah my math is right and apart from that spear I don’t think he’s really done anything wrestling since retiring so I guess the fear was that he could really injure himself yeah should he take just a bump wrong you’re playing with paralysis at that point yeah telling story how he was doing house shows with Batista mhm and he would take the petits to bomb and you’d lose sensation and at least one of his arms yeah and that’s how it when he knew that something that was up again that’s for 2007 picture I didn’t see I so look as I’m scaring I look at the Twitter I didn’t see anything okay but I take your word for it maybe I met had dreamed of Jack the edge and that wasn’t your body goals Larsen have a oh that’s perfect but that would be cool mmm-hmm edge returning to do more neat things or at least what Morden look man as long as that dude can is as long as I’m not sitting there scared that he’s gonna get paralyzed I’m all for it man yeah man I’m all for it did a lot of neat things the most decorated champion deputy history yeah I know it’s awesome it’s great so yeah that’d be cool I just you know we’ll see we’ll see these are like private rumblings private conversations that mostly claims to be privy thirty-two yes so did edge just the spirit doing the edging Christian podcast yeah the spirit SummerSlam was very interesting mm-hmm that was kind of crazy because he did not see not expect to see that and no and you know I was in Toronto’s his hometown makes sense to have him do it he physically could yeah but we didn’t think he could even physically or it was worth the risk to even physically do that well I mean given the nature of injury but then like Sheamus has been wrestling I mean I’m sure there’s various levels of spinal stenosis that’s what Sheamus has been dealing with my wife has like a slight case of spinal stenosis he really needs to go see some mm-hmm yeah she’s not doing any Spears or anything you know maybe she could I don’t know she punched me a lot yes that a throw a punch a shoot punch yeah but edge yeah I didn’t figure look I mean we’ve we always hear about wrestlers who are cleared to do this clear to do that if you’re like pregnant you can’t even be ringside during a match because who knows what could happen anything can happen and and you know you figure that edge having to retire as suddenly as he did it’s not like he went on an extended you know goodbye to or anything like that no it was pretty sudden and pretty shocking and you’d figure okay that’s it done you’re not doing anything in the ring and to come back I mean you know medicine and science are crazy these days man yeah people aren’t using odd solutions they’re using science and medicine Carson and you know just like with Daniel Bryan we figured we figured you can’t mess with the brain evidently the brain can be fine bathe it in oxygen it does wonders yeah exactly and they’re learning more about it what it can and can’t do so maybe I don’t know maybe spinal stenosis here’s here’s what I want all are died and came back to life on an episode of Raw it’s true medicines crazy um edge apparently I mean corny Meltzer was negotiating apparently with aw do you think it was for an in-ring role or something else because like I could see him coming back there would be having another match at mania weather this next year the one falling whatever case people maybe but I would be shocked if it was for like anything approaching even a Lesnar schedule oh yeah that’d be shocking that’d be that’d be totally shocking but uh yeah I don’t know I don’t know either with a bill I Isis like if they aw pretty much everybody’s watching working on your schedule yeah in aew I would suspect I would suspect that if he called Vince and said hey aew wants me for an on-screen role and I’m getting I’m getting some word from my medical people that there’s the possibility that I might be able to return what do you got yeah where is the Brinks truck because you don’t want this face on aew TV you don’t want Eddie to do neat things over in aw no you don’t and at that point he was like well if the possibility is even you know even exists that he could be showing up on TV then now all rolled over we have all this money sitting around from the Fox Deal and the Saudis let’s let’s give him some of that money mm-hmm and on top of that if he’s able to return cool even better return on our investment mm-hmm but now they’re throwing money and anybody they you know we forgot to mention this during our aw recap there was that fella sitting front row with the bright green shirt that is always at the livid of e shows Kyle from NAC he was an AW show he wasn’t front row I didn’t see him I just saw his Twitter feed Wow where he was at a he’s front center at NXT tell me tell me that WB wouldn’t start paying the vampire in his mom hahaha Kyle yes to stay at their shows their fixtures of the Brock Lesnar guys probably gonna get a six-figure deal maybe it’s a Brock Lesnar guy there in the the raw audience show up with that same shirt he’s gonna be at the red carpet tonight probably wouldn’t surprise me hi Brock Lesnar guy here guy guy picture time okay over here it is made from house cards yeah are there anything associated with WV man they’re gonna get they’re gonna get money you don’t at them yep smart business move by edge Karen says all Karen says five or six of the NXT regulars read aew I mean they didn’t look they don’t know buddies nobody sees as seriously as all your choosing sides I wanted to god I’m on my bucket list is going to an NXT full sail show mmm-hmm I wanted to go to aew because I want to see what they’re doing like I love it all I think it’s all great yeah it ain’t picking sides but WB’s gonna see it that way I know they’re gonna do it that way for their business exactly sure speaking of doing things for their business even though they say their hands off the decision we got more news on CM Punk yeah you know W be backstage according to a fight Oracle on Twitter it’s 2010 again man yep it’s gonna happen CM Punk is gonna be one of the on-air personalities and W backstage where they’d say quote I am told CM Punk to Fox Sports one is commentator and BB is a done deal nice at WB backstage ads in a subsequent subsequent tweet quote and this would explain why a e-w said they pulled out of the CM Punk sweepstakes just saving face yeah didn’t Nick Jackson say something like that ship has sailed or something probably I thought I saw that as a headline one of the places well Cody talked about you know all that to say now yeah you know he said they punk made him look like dumbasses they’re something yeah yeah but then wouldn’t explain that and I wasn’t just strictly texting there was there’s a copy shop owns some sort and they were trying to arrange further in meetings or something so yeah and then I read somewhere that punk wanted like a ton more money again I don’t know where that was from yeah take that a little bit with a total grain of salt super great you never know who’s doling out this in but anyways this is Lee this is a pretty huge get for Fox Sports one Zeb eSports uh what’s their Spanish language is Dysport tests maybe that probably sounds like sports they tweeted this morning something about you know the Smackdown premiere and they said something like who might show up John Cena CM Punk Nikki Bella I honestly think they were just throwing out names of former popular superstars maybe their social media team is a bit more relaxed with you know proper protocol for posting stuff yeah or maybe not maybe they’re totally was in LA this week yeah he was on Kevin and bean man maybe he’s gonna be there I don’t Debbie I mean it’s surprising enough that he would agree to do anything centering around ever be much less show up on the blue carpet today Primus all this oh he’s really taking a picture with Triple H right oh he’s really just working for Fox not W E come on man he’s surrounded by the WB logo everywhere you know splitting hairs man you know it is come on tell me that if your paycheck may not have World Wrestling Entertainment on there it more knew that CM Punk was showing up and they didn’t want him there they put the kibosh on that in a heartbeat oh yeah in a second that dudes come back to wrestle no I don’t think that’s a huge stretch Oh every indication has been he’s not interested in it not to say people don’t change their minds must I still think it’s a massive stretch okay here’s the thing people might change your minds but this is this is wrestling it’s the world of illusion man they say one thing and mean another right hand left hand in coordination or not I don’t know but I saw Punk do that GTS at that Indy show when he had the mask on he’s got no business being in the ring anytime soon ETS wasn’t never Zack it looked much better in the past and it did it that you know that gave him a little boost of adrenaline right there just like last night what’s – Steve Nash said he was on a Collider whatever it was yeah it’s like he doesn’t miss wrestling but he said yeah I kind of missed the performance aspect going out there in front of a crowd and telling a story and getting the adrenalin rush from that yeah yeah I think that’s something as a performer if you are you know if you enjoy performing that that that feeling you Pyne never lose we have a pizza bed over that right yeah what if he everybody wins and that’s a dusty finished bed right there wait I actually get some the pizza – OH should you you should just what you should be like the Nemo man you watch me eat exactly I shouldn’t get it joining that pizza unless I get a pizza my own yeah which one bail do live on camera I’d like the whole pizza on camera yes is our college days already got a red berry pizza oh that’s cheap sighs terms of my deal I plunked down for a mountain like small I’d say if I’m gonna need the whole thing it’s gotta be it’s still like to me never get out of hell out a medium medium is really not that big it’s license that was medium is trolley you can’t leave slices come and then like keep on filming when I start when I start purging it yeah before we talk ratings man because we’re about to talk about the ratings war yeah let’s get a word from the sponsor of the winner of the ratings war in today’s show all elite wrestling the revolution continues Wednesday at TNT with all the wrestling that’s right their sponsor of going in raw man yeah man as we saw this past week is wrestling made for wrestling fans by other wrestlers themselves a e-w action flies higher hits harder and with their all-inclusive roster of superstars they’re breaking all boundaries and this upcoming Wednesday the first round of the aew tag team tournament kicks off with the young bucks taking on private party live from Boston we’re gonna be covering aew every week here on going in raw first episode went up yesterday and we hope all the friendos out there will join us and experiencing this revolution in professional wrestling all elite wrestling dynamite Wednesdays at 8/7 central on TNT all right let’s get right into this reading stuff heck yeah man it’s fortuitous that they won the ratings war week one because we’re sponsored by them two perfect segue if we were if if we respond to him they lost we’d probably still just say they want not a credible journalist enough but we are know so let’s get into this we touched on some of this some point yesterday was number start coming in number for your live or not anyways according to the rap the winner of round one Wednesday night is aew and they did seemingly do it in dominant fashion aew scored an average of 1.4 million viewers on the live airing Wednesday night taking the number-2 spot on cable mmm on all a cable only behind the major league baseball vodka blog car game which has an Oakland A’s fan it was incredibly disappointing but kind of par for the course for these fine Joe Horace is about the winner of the punk but eats a pizza their choice loser has to eat cold Little Caesars yeah NXT came in at 10th for the night averaging eight hundred ninety one thousand viewers according to show buzz daily aew absolutely destroyed NXT amongst the 18 to 49 demo drawing 0.68 rating compared to NXT is 0.32 more than doubled it that would be must had an idea they were going to come out on the losing end of things because the issued a statement Thursday morning which read quote congratulations to a EWN a successful premiere the real winners of last night’s head head telecast of NXT on USA Network and aew and TNT are the fans who can expect Wednesday night’s to be a competitive and wild ride as this is a marathon not a one-night sprint I guess I’m they never would have done 20 years ago I think that’s awesome let me tell you something and they’re right we all win because we’re getting exciting wrestling Wednesday night something look forward to something be really excited about we only spawned we only accept sponsorships from winners on the show Larson come on it’s funny it’s it is it’s a joke relax I loved I loved everything about Wednesday I thought it was great yeah it is great for the fans it gives people yeah a choice what to watch what to be excited about first and both shows were great the thing that I like the thing that I like shows that they were both very different from each other Rose brought so much excitement enthusiasm in their own distinct ways and and yeah I mean and we all went you can you can parse these numbers here and and we’re about to do that a bit yeah because some of the stuff is interesting and while we don’t have the full picture based on the plus three which we’ll get to later Meltzer add some details assuming it’s true actually really improves the case for atw this would you had to say in newsletter quote and other factors that you you add the replay number which we don’t have officially at this point but was around six hundred and fifty thousand that’s great talking to million people watch aew you know the premiere yeah that’s like Smackdown numbers pretty much but total aw viewers were not too far behind a typical raw I’m pretty much identical to what Smackdown been doing on Tuesdays on USA the key point okay well on what my question about that is and I don’t know if you know this or not so he’s talking about the replay number for aew yeah does the Ron Smackdown rating that we get week to week include replay viewers as well I mean are there replay viewers or out there there is no read he’s talking about the AE WH they’ve replayed it right every player right out right after Wow let me see there’s anything on yeah I thought it was some other plus we talked about the cluster II later huh no he doesn’t talk about the plus three doll might mention that plus three is my mentioned the plow okay oh you have right there okay anyways you continue I’ll see if there’s anything on here on show buzz daily about the the overrun I’m sorry that the replay I don’t think there is though so he says the key point is that aw beat both are on Smackdown significantly in viewers under 34 and the only edge is aew died over 50 the latter thing would indicate less of lapsed fan of fans of nitro nostalgia and more of a new audience the ultimate story here is that unless aew drops significantly under 35 next week and this isn’t a flash in the pan w w is already behind with fans in that age group if that is the case it completely exposes WWE as it’s not the change in television viewership that has changed their demos nor run off older fans but that they have lost touch with the younger audience that’s kind of been I mean you can anecdotally say that that’s that’s just I wonder if the primary way that a fans 18-49 ingest the product is not watching the broadcast I mean that seems evident because the numbers aren’t great it’s through YouTube yeah that could be where is this aw you’re cutting the aw sprung from a YouTube show essentially yeah so a lot of people I’m guessing who watched being the elite or now aw fans yeah and it’s a quick transition I would I would believe from like oh I like these whether they were wrestling fans before or not they just started watching the show maybe oh wow this is these guys are funny yeah oh they wrestle – okay I’ll watch the wrestling yeah I don’t know yeah I don’t know I mean I think it’s I don’t know how you’d scientifically get like a decent poll on this I’m sure there were ways but it’s probably too cost-prohibitive to do it but for us yes yeah yeah I know but like in terms of the demographics you know are these fans that got tired of WWE within the past five years and see this as like a breath of fresh air it’s like hey I like wrestling but man WWE is just not doing it for me and they see all the wrestling and they it’s the grassroots thing and they are like very entertaining on their YouTube show and then oh wow they’re doing this and they’re really into engagement with their fan base I mean I honestly believe that that’s probably a lot of it you know I mean just listening to people that you know on Twitter I mean honestly how many of them you know every week we’ve got don’t plan to watch it like Denver said and that’s down from what it used to be yeah yeah yeah exactly and so it’s like people will watch they’ll watch this show to get what’s happening in wrestling and they won’t watch The WB product mm-hmm I mean there are some people out there doing that so did you see that a bit I think Russell talk had the story about the the Hogan Flair segment on Raw yeah what is it brought five hundred thousand more viewers and they instantly left when that segment ended and apparently the expectation is for the rock segment tonight on Smackdown to get like four million viewers yeah which is crazy that is crazy but I guess the issue is like yeah they can have everybody has these segments which can draw numbers but as soon as those segments are over people leave well yeah man because they haven’t built new stuff that’s the bottom line they haven’t built new like sustainable stars in our household names you know mm-hmm anyways Chris Jericho spoke to complex and noted that since WB issued a statement congratulating aew the company was likely embarrassed an added quote they started this everything that they’ve done has been reactionary to us we’re not in a war with anybody besides ourselves all that matters is our show he also said they kind of started this war and the very first night they got destroyed big deal it’s our first debut but they have to come back and say it’s a marathon and not a one-night sprint whoever said it’s a one-night sprint it’s not a war for us now we’re placed in one and we’re gonna kick ass Jericho’s very confident I applaud your confidence yeah man way to believe in your product Jericho as you show yeah no that’s great that’s awesome yeah I mean if you’re double-double you can’t do anything but just you know SDF up we still will talk about this real briefly we still have the plus three numbers for either show I hope I won’t come out to Monday I would guess since the three days after I assume the plus three means three days after yeah yeah I think that’s what it says people to account for DVRs and stuff give you our views so maybe Monday on the we’ll revisit this and we don’t know we probably won’t ever know the exact count of what NXT is VOD airing on the network got maybe 24 hours after it went up on Thursday well it’ll be telling he’ll be telling if there if it sinks so like we don’t have the numbers on it but um you know every week usually in the newsletter he’ll he’ll give us what the you know the top 10 or top seven watch shows if if NXT remains in the top five you would think that the VOD would still do pretty spectacular thing so I mean right now is the VOD still the only way that internationally people can watch it like Canada like let’s say Canada in the UK a B I don’t know if there’s been a is there a UK deal for NXT live I don’t think there is I think except the what’s the next thing yeah I think so so I think so but anyways with all these various numbers still come in as possible the gap could close somewhat two million dollars or two million dollars two million view viewers is a pretty huge number for all week between the two broadcasts that’s awesome that’s pretty huge great yeah so is this I don’t know how you can say this has anything but a really positive sign for atw and here’s the thing I’m actually giving the demos a they attracted the thing is that’s that dude that’s here’s the thing that’s that’s what we want we want it because aw is the company that they’ve got all the risk they’ve got all the risk W he’s fine they’re gonna be around forever aw if they landed a turd if they did 400,000 or 500,000 and landed a turd then they’d be sweating they’re like man is this business sustainable they’ve said in the past they need TV to work and they need good TV to work yeah they can’t do this on the pursuit Channel no or with a twitch deal no and so if if this was a bad situation and it got worse week to week I mean look I don’t know if they’re gonna do two million every single week but it wouldn’t surprise me if they had some decent legs what was that look you Jonathan says Sports Net has annexed to Canada so maybe there is okay home is live though Alex he says no annex II deal in the UK sky and BT above so they don’t want it that’s interesting so yeah wait till Thursday to watch it yeah interesting but you know that is true this is a marathon not a sprint so these numbers are gonna even out yeah is is we think regardless aw is gonna do like when everything settles down as long as they they keep relevant like creatively as long as they keep bringing the good creative they’re gonna do well past a million week-to-week I mean I I don’t know what’s gonna fall all the way down to when all is said and done to just a million yeah like losing 50% I guess as possible I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know there’s a lot of enthusiasm beside behind the product yeah if they can maintain it they have the show in Champaign Illinois goes on sale today see what ticket sales are like now after TV is debuted well ticket sales pick up on new shows and shows that aren’t so doubt yet they’ve been announced and with tickets available I think that probably interesting measure of enthusiasm you know short term I mean if there’s things still more or less fill five to six thousand seat buildings and on occasion put on a show not pay-per-view in a larger venue and sell tickets that’s a great song somebody made a point here in Chatham and I wanted to bring this up because I know we’re gonna get in the comments for saying talking about Jericho and what he said about oh well Jericho has confidence in this company and it’s good and people talking Seth talks about his company we I promise talking saying he thoughts company with better get Brigadoon here in chat has a purpose as criticism as Seth had nothing to do with him defending WB and everything I think we even said good for him yeah defend your stuff but then when you go on Twitter and act like a full big-timing Osprey with about how big your bank account and then you go and you talk trash people who are interested in the process of how the product is put out there I mean resentment towards fans over wanting them and no more information is a bad look that’s why people like aw because they’re open yeah they’re open to process they’re open to engaging with their fans yeah that’s why people like it mm-hmm they don’t feel like there’s a barrier between performer and viewer in a aw at least not to the same extent there’s and wbw still seems like they have this idea that there needs to be this curtain that needs to protect part of the business I don’t feel like aw exists in that same fear yeah I know they’re more open about things this is professional wrestling we all know what it is now no one’s under any illusion that this is real fighting it’s the way the future its entertainment yeah so yeah this one Seth goes on Twitter and starts talking down to fans it’s unnecessary talking down to cage side seats unnecessary yeah it is I know it’s completely unnecessary yep I agree talk about unnecessary let’s talk about I got to talk about is Randy Orton business dear this is gonna be fun so let me just preface this by your insurance shad right now if you’re gonna post in the YouTube comments really think really think about what you’re gonna write mm-hmm and if you want to be banned from the channel don’t think that’s again okay so apparently when Randy Orton isn’t tipsy on twitch we’ll get to that more later he’s on Twitter challenging the rock to a match at WrestleMania hosted this I was before or after his twitch stream he says at the rock I see you will be at Smackdown on Fox this Friday how about you and I have a discussion about who’s the greatest third generation of all time if we answered that question April 5th in Tampa WrestleMania 36 a Viper sense the smell is unmatched to smell I smell what you’re cooking so in theory that could be huge money mass but this back to this yeah so apparently that up right there that could have been fun especially man his interaction there on Raw when he told Seth to crawl out of Hogan’s ass that was all good stuff so apparently left I think it was last night on twitch the Viper seemingly had a couple drinks streams from call of duty and when he wasn’t putting over aew and Sami Guevara and imitating AJ Styles yeah that was cool like that was the first clip that I saw where he was like man G see that aw and had a like a huge fight feel and same equal very I want to work with that guy someday right and then his AJ impersonation was pretty funny I didn’t hear that but that’s great he was having what some people have described as a heat to gaming moment you know this particular man was not heat in the least and saying words he had absolutely no business utter yeah in any way the term heated gaming moment is like yeah big giant sarcastic quotation marks I people can attest to this man last night on him on my twitch stream at MF Steve here I had plenty of heated gaming moments where Kevin McHale was balling me up and I called him slow and I called him ugly at no point whatsoever did I ever use any racial slurs at no point did I do that and I was quite heated darn it and I stand by every word I said about Kevin McHale point he was balling me up who’s making alleged man making me mad legend so ugly do you think do you think he built he deserves a spot in the all 80s team or should have been Charles Barkley oh yeah no that should have been Barkley I should have been Barclays for sure no he doesn’t um I like mckaela’s great he’s a legend hall-of-famer man no no but occasionally successful executive as well but here’s the income man if I don’t care if it’s in jest if it’s in the heat of the moment if you’re white you can’t say certain things man you just can’t you just don’t do it in public private wherever just don’t do it yeah and that’s that’s all there that’s all there is to it yeah I don’t want to hear any well that no no no stop it just don’t yeah do you think Randy’s gonna get punished for this I don’t know me neither I don’t know me neither I don’t know I mean I’m assuming we’re gonna get an apology I would hope so funny thing is if you listen to it it’s not even a heated moment oh not at all it just sounds very casual casual it really does and I wouldn’t surprise me if this is the kind of thing he muttered at other times but there’s no evidence of that so I’m not gonna say that’s the truth yeah so anyways there it is oh boy so yeah we’ll see what happened to that we’ll see what happens with that yeah he should he should definitely issue some sort of apology mm-hmm see if he does though yeah first

like many other organs what the appropriate meant a time can heal medically speaking is a case-by-case basis totally yeah man DJ st. says Rumble winning odds for NXT someone from NXT can win the rumble oh that’s pretty small that’s to boil pots area Rumble winning odds I don’t understand the question Rumble winning odds for NXT we’ve got an inside source potentially Adrian C says my source at Staples confirms no fists for the new set disappointed Nixie fever you can do a joker review are you gonna love that Joker I don’t know I’ve sort of my my original take on the Joker when I first heard they were doing that movie and then I saw the trailers and everything was the same thing that Dave Schilling tweeted out about it he said my feelings on the Joker are my feelings about every movie I watch I was just waiting for Batman to show up Dave shillings great buddy yeah great and that’s my that’s my short take on it is I’m sure it’s I’m sure it’s a really cool movie mm-hmm but it’s like one of those CW shows where you know I don’t care about the joke around I get Batman yeah you know now if this led to like that Joker being integrated into the Matt Reeves Batman stuff that’s coming up cool that’s good but as far as I know there’s no plan for that it’s just like a one-off D and I’m not sure walking Phoenix I do is Oscar level I’m not sure he’s gonna want to get involved in the DC Universe that Brett sounds like a nightmare for to a guy Kim I know I know mr. Ollie be he’s seen the golden one Center interview with Bray this is creepy we saw him do the weather report we saw him give a shout out to do some fresh yeah he was on a good day this morning oh yeah he was kind of in Firefly character cool yeah I think he did it he didn’t interview I think it was mo yeah I think he did I think I’ve yet to watch that and watch that though Colton Meehan hey guys TSN has aew deal came in Tuesday and watched it live and it really has no live Canadian showing at all I the TSN showing did a just over a hundred thousand hmm which is pretty good because thing it happened the day before mm-hmm so vfl/afl football Australian rules a aew should always win the ratings interesting Brendon wilt rarest going to going to Smackdown tonight sitting by the entrance ramp wish I had some going in Rob merchant now Lowell see you there friendos there yeah Sergio C mentioned he’s gonna be there too he said uh what do you say now if only Steve shipped out the five-year anniversary shirt in time for me to wear it I no apologies for that being sick took me out of the game the first big batch of orders are done I literally am gonna drop my post office today and then this weekend I’m gonna get the rest of them done or early next week anyways this weekend’s kind of backed retard Steve for what it’s worth ollie and Luke really put over the Joker movie that’s cool everybody everybody’s loving that Joker I get it it’s probably a really cool movie apparently it’s not Brand X but dude I want I want Batman in a freaking job I want Batman you can’t have one without the other man I don’t want a jelly sandwich I mean you need that nut butter on there huh need that peanut butter baby that’s what I need like everything else they don’t like Gotham’s innit Bruce Wayne’s dad is in it named Thomas Tom Wayne Tom Wayne Tom Wayne you know like this is I I’m not a fan of origin stories in the first place yeah you know I’ve seen them all and I need this probably be a good movie although you know Todd Phillips seems like you a bit of a jerk also yeah it’s quite about why he stopped doing comedies was off base can’t be funny these days there’s plenty of people who are funny man it’s very funny all these little sensitive babies out there can’t be funny I can’t see what I want to say yeah so yeah another way to be funny yeah there’s plenty of ways to be funny tons of ways to be funny let’s take some questions first mr. trip mania unlikely to happen since they are partners however hypothetically if aew pay-per-views ever goes up against one of triple a’s made of major events which do you choose I mean Scotty aw let me kind of saw that when triple-a went up against uh what pay-per-view was it in SummerSlam let’s take over I think neither Madison Square Garden Show I think this up against to take over is that what it was no there’s something else wha mr. Feeny I wants to know if aw pay-per-view ever goes head-to-head with one two triple a’s major events which one are we watching need uh be business perspective okay what more sits out but the only exception there about mania Romania but a dhobi the partnership with Triple A therefore we all get aw talents at Romania yeah yeah totally Lord zipper with only three matches announced for Hellmuth Snell book five more matches for the card they could that could actually happen alright this is this my team actually to do this for our predictions as guess which matches I know right um okay the Tag Titles revival versus new day I guess yeah they’ve done they’ve literally done nothing with that okay so that that can’t even be one of them war Raiders vs. Rudolph okay that’s a possibility for sure rusev versus Bob Lashley that’s super early for that the Hat is that I guess as possible you could find a way to do Cedric versus AJ again yeah Nakamura versus again Miz do they have a thing I thought they already have their mo they did or you have a match I guess all we yeah Holly yeah there’s four like there’s gotta be something else that’s obvious and I’m not thinking of edge versus somebody why not Oh Bailey versus carmella vs. alright next oh that’s dude this is exactly right Dom eNOS says what are the odds that Mansu totally happening and then my and he’s gonna be we have one last guy one mystery guy who’s gonna show up at crown jewel and it’s Mansu he said and it’s man sewer Saudi Arabian WWE scene man Greg Morris would be other possibility for the fiend to confront the rock only for Seth to make the save I’m outside their own possibility no they never bring that dude out like everyone surround likes do you love me I know I’m never bring him out otherwise he’s amazing Saudi Arabian moments and then put it back put him back in his room the Rob server when is inner dimension attention to happening we got to talk about that okay yeah we got to talk about it not on air well no we’ll figure yeah two weeks you don’t want to do it for the charity stream or you think it’s too big of a deal for that I kind of went do the charity stream with the new game okay that’s cool let’s go I’m down with that uh Andy Goodwin or Godwin is that be overdoing it with Bray and the fun house and the fiend it should feel more special than it does I don’t know if they’re overdoing it I think it’s fine I think it still feels a little rushed but like I feel like this feud should have taken more than three weeks to play out you know what maybe they should have done I agree with you it is rushed they should have had the fiend first go after like really vulnerable superstars like guys with bad records like Curt Hawkins who has no chance and it’s like a whore the first scene of a horror movie is like Freddy Krueger first take out the main character immediately going at who exactly he goes after the lumps who can’t defend themselves who do not have the dream powers mm-hmm in the third act he gets beat by the people with a dream powers yeah but then he always shows up and like the post-credits scene yeah yeah so like that should be the fiend he should go after you know the the low-hanging fruit for mmm the easy pickins uh Mark Whalen is it unrealistic to expect auw to have around 1.1 1.2 million viewers every week once the newness factor wears off no because they had to like if you if you if you add the replay no I think it’s likely that in the end they’re probably gonna get like on a one and a half one to one point four to one point seven Alex Rodriguez there’s a wrestling media have an agenda to push making people think IEW is destroying NXT to be no I don’t think so nothing I can wait this who haven’t the quote-unquote wrestling media have an agenda to push making people think aw is destroying NXT WB were part of the wrestling media yes kind of I mean I know we’ve been sponsored a by aw we don’t have anything we didn’t want good wrestling yeah I don’t think I don’t know like we know people in the wrestling Mia I mean I mean I can only speak for ourselves and when we first got those first rounds and numbers the first thing I said is well let’s get the plus threes because I’m guessing that the first thing that the ratings showed me is is that people were more curious about what aw is going to be then checking out what they knew with NXT there is this curiosity factor they WI think we’re like oh okay this is new it’s got buzz behind it TN t–‘s been proving the hell out of it Aylin check it out see what it’s all about uh-huh but real and then I’m guessing a lot of people who watch NXT first watch the replay of aw watch dynamite so I’m interested to see what the +3 numbers are I don’t think we’ll ever know what the network numbers are gonna be for like the first 24-48 hours of NXT in the network but I’m if I would be shocked if there was a massive gap between the total number of viewers for either show yeah I know I know to the extent that it is now like six no shoot if you’d add the 600,000 that’s like 1.2 million mm-hmm difference that would probably be cut down substantially yeah yeah I don’t know I don’t know I don’t think there’s something as much of an agenda of anything I just think it’s you know the numbers are out and yes you can quibble over what adjectives to use in terms of how much better they did did they get destroyed did they do you know they obviously did better so Justin Francis really off topic but I’m a mind the only one who’s really annoyed with all the debit championships now using velcro it makes the titles look like toys maybe that’s what they are going for to sell to kids I’m not a fan of the velcro so I agree with that yeah I’m not a fan I don’t think it makes it looks like toys necessarily look good Stuart Lee says I’ve been waiting for Larson’s long-form video essay a lecture about Hogan having been a heel the whole time with the onslaught of wrestling shows and coverage I fear it may never happen it’s always intriguing me and hope to see it one day it’s gonna take a massive amount of time for me to go back and revisit a lot of his first run did it be you got to hop on it man I think I’m looking forward to it too I think it’s um you should sort of chip away out a little bit ya know I got to start watching stuff piece by piece here and there Jimmy Thomas is how much they pay wale to be at NXT instead of aew in his hometown aw Pete hometown mm-hmm I don’t know wale seems like he’s a he’s a he’s a friend of WWE mm-hmm I’m sure he’s probably open to aw as well I’m not sure we have not received confirmation that while a was offered anything by aw so I don’t know yeah I don’t know either I don’t know let’s see here Wong asks which show a ewr NXT do you think will be the first to pull a desperation move like spoiling a championship win for the other show or a finger poke of doom long I don’t see it happening ever I do not sing see it happening ever times are different now times are different I think that they understand that will totally backfire mmm yowee Wow II what happens to Kofi if he loses to Brock tonight hopefully gets a rematch hopefully win said rematch mm-hmm Henry very horny boy says Steve your name calling of Mikael very disrespectful oh he was pissing me off last night man Wow Wow looks like a janitor didn’t play like no disrespect sorry that that deaf disrespectful Jam it is one now probably some very handsome janitors out there yeah he’s just low trash well a favor though man that’s disrespectful a low trash he was a wreck and yet he was wrecking man that wrecking me dude 13 minutes like 18 points who was gardening trash probably Rodman I know Robins AI is garbage I thought it was just he couldn’t hit shot like it point-blank he couldn’t hit a shot like he was good on boards dude it’s terrible why he was literally like that’s human error he was one of those like last night he went for like a shot under there it just like went back on his head I feel like that was it was mostly your dude yeah I think I was guarding because I was wrecking you I always switch up no and I play basketball games I’m out in the perimeter I’m not involved in interior defense because it’s gonna end up in a bucket or a film I’ll show you I got to show you that Nash shot man it’s amazing again twitch.tv fart /mf Steve here Taylor Sexton is Cody the ultimate tweener since he comes out of neither the face nor heel oh yes he’s doing he’s doing out I think some of the most low-key interesting character work that plays with heels and faces that I’ve ever seen in wrestling I think it’s fantastic John what chances do you give her into your tan leaving WT after his contract ends in 2020 who’s Randle I mean talk about the Brinks truck it ain’t gonna it’s it’s literally gonna be for the highest bidder and they’re gonna be paying a whole lot a lot Russell dude where does lava finn bálor from the 2k 20 trailer rank on the scale of Balor’s so is that confirmed Balor I think so okay I’d say hello because we don’t know what his record is don’t know what here no no dominant lava belorus yeah Austin 6d Scrabble champ it’s a movie called Joker you’re getting the Joker that’s fine if you Tim spoke earlier said you don’t need the Batman in it I personally disagree it’s the Joker and yet Batman I wonder if access chemicals in it anonymous tip Napier’s cleaning out access chemicals oh come on let’s go Rando number 1 God should NXT take the TV product on the road I would love to go to a TV broadcast but I don’t live in Orlando I’ve been to a live event that was really fun should they know I don’t know I mean it depends on what their goals are depends on what they want to Triple H seems to really like Full Sail mmm-hmm I mean maybe maybe test it out and say hey we’re gonna go on the road the special time of the year I don’t know when NXT summer vacation right something like that NXT Spring Break going down to Panama City yes have Adam Cole go the old stomping grounds mmm yep let’s see here Jimmy Thomas with crown jewel being on a Thursday should the episode of SmackDown the next day be an evolution special out of Ariel standing
