ABOUT THIS EPISODE

This episode includes Campbell and Hamish's initial reaction after Money in the Bank a well as a relaxed conversation about the current state of Pro Wrestling.

Roches, I welcome back to episode twenty ofHelloe on the lacas bit of a special one. I Guess Episode Twenty, likeeventually it's going to die O can't just every ten episode say this is aspecial one, but it's say the second ten, the second tenth month, if youknow mean still decent achievement, it is I weren't, live, probably not themost weld planned episode and that's twice in a row now, because I knowepisode. Ten wasn't great either, but maybe episode fiftyill think war. Something interesting to do so. To start this one off we'reactually going to flash back to our money in the bank review, so werecorded a little twenty minute chout about money in the bank we di the WPVW.If you don't know, money in the bank is straight after the event it was about amonth ago, so we're going to now have our formercells talking about the results and potential aftermath of that. We Mat a few predictions in there, aswell as to what's going to happen and the WW in the following month. So yeah yeah don't think any of ourpredictions are rign. Yes, anyway, I'l enjoy, I it is currently Monday, the eleventh ofMay and if everything's gone to plan, we'vejust been introed by future Hamishin Campbel about the upcoming backlash,pay per view and Cabel is here with me: Hallo Eli,Hello, I'm back an back again, any any words of wisdom to say, Tho, your future. Your fe yourself there's no place like hime Ighyeah, sowe just it's weare fresh of money in the bank. It was about ten hours ago or somethingyeah. It was in the morning yeah. It was this morning. It's nine o'clock nowyeah, so we'll just get straight into it. The preshow Jeff Hardy vers SAR yeah. So this was alate addition to the card. It was like the night before pretty much. It wasjust a match put on because Jeff Hard, an shame, is having a rovelry. That'sabout to start Yeas Asar is still technically connected to shame isbecause of thei tag. Team History Buk. I feel like Sisaris, just a pretshowlike boy now, because for the last two he's been preshow, not really having alike serious fight, just helping someone's career yeah, he's kind ofjust like a steady performer little Mano, Yeah Li, but it's always it'salways good to seech of Hardy Wressell Hee's, one of my favorie westlers ofall time. So it's always good to see him wrestle. Ias Surprise, Shameis Tin'come out, though, at the end of the match yeah, I thought he would havecame out and just like Stot at the entrance and just like stat them off,but Jeff Hardy, just won n. That was the end of that match. He just LAK. Itwas pretty weird. I heard someone say this a couple hours ago on a YoutubeVeo, but they were like. It was basically just a spackdown match. Yeahit was. It wasn't really a peper few mane so bu. I guess it was pretty sorand yeah pretty clear. We didn't make a prediction for this in our money in thebank prea Wen, so it's Gointa Havem. It was Alat, but if I was to get, I wouldhave picked, Jeffony yeah is pretty. Obviously they were going to get himthe win yeah we can head into the shameoss rivalry with SOMMOMENTUM. Sois that WHO? What do you think is going to happen from that match? Yeah?Definitely Jeff Hardian shamous over this next month, irecand, the therivalry is going to get bigger and...

...theyre actually going to start fightingeach other. Like wrestle yeah, I think that's pretty obvious. That's thatthere's not really any guesswork in that I'LD be very shocked. If therewasn't so, then we got into the main card. First of all, kicking US off. Wehad the fatal, forway tag. Team ATS, pretty prey days. The new day, Luchaisn't Moer son, the forgon son. So my guess was forgotten: Sons Yeah, I guessnew day to retain and then to springboard into a rivalry withforgotten, sience yeah, I think yeah, I felt deep in my heart than newday was going to win, but I did think like the new because they push nxtstars really hard when they come into the main ruster. So I did think they'regoing to win they close to winning. They were going to win, but then thenew day stole the well. They didn't sell the victory, the and yeah. Ithought it was just a pretty generic tag. Team match it's fun. Yes, I do definitely think the new day will go into a feud with theve gonesiyeah. I think I think this in Marrsan, a kind of theattag team is just goingto be put on hold for a bit of yeah. I think they're done or maybe they'llmove to roar or something yeah after the pandemic and and Wudshad. Theywould really just in it to make up the numbers, so they'll go back to doingwhat they do best, yeah and so yeah. I think we'll be forgon sons, becausethey had a little bit of controversiy with Jackson Rickar getting sent backstage basically yeahinterfering. So I guess that adds a little bit of drama, not really surewhya little bit, O Bas fit Bas Bayas. So after she difen she on sons to comeout of that yeah. That is Al. I that's probably my prediction that for got insons, newday, rivelry and they'll have a title match against each other atbacklash, yeah and then what was next Oby Lashley? Well, it'ssupposed to be archin. MVP is another late addition to the car, so our truthand MVP came out. They had a little verbal argument, then bobby lashly cameout and then bobby lashally was the one to face I treated just went of, for itwas like a to minee match and yea was ppret Shit. It's very ardrith match,I'm kind of I love Bobby Lastye, like I loved him back in the day when he wasversing like Omago, in a hair hat heavy hair. Much but like now he's a bit offun. Idonor yeah he's not he's not fun to what I think about him. That'sinteresting and, like I wouldn't say, he's necessarily good enough wrestlerto make up for that he's, not very fun to watch like back in the day. He wasvery much like the face and he was a powerhouse where now he's just like. I don't know I bit boring Bibland Yeah.So I guessed the when we found out about this match being odded to thecard. I guess thet would have something to do the twenty four sevenchampionship and IV wark the match it seemed like. I was incorrect andguessing that, but later on n the night, our truth had a little cameo where he was like talking about.Well, he was a baker. Basically he was just saying Elyeah he wants his and hewas confused and then he was saying he was going to go, get his title backfrom Tom Brady Yeah, no, obviously the grund hazard so just a bit of our truth:Humor Really Yeah but yeah. So I guess we were kind of right. Although thematch was a bit weird, its purpose obviously was to link thetwenty four seven chammionship back into the show, as it hadn't appearedfor a month, Ondon't yeah but yeah, pretty weird yeah, very weird, but itdidn't take much time at least no yeah went. I went fast Al Right. So what wasnext Bailey versus to MEA and Baly defeated to me Ando, so we both gone asprediction wrong. Yeah. We both predicted Tomina but an she was looked.She actually was going to win and then sushbanks interfered yeah, so Sushsbings wasn't there. We would have been correct, but I think this mat yeah thismatch. It was okay, it was a bit of to...

...men, es a powerhouse and then Bailey isa bit scared and then Bailey like targets a leg and Sheis mad. But Ithink, with the result of this win, I think to Menat will stay in thepitcture, but I think they'll focus something will happen. SASHWILL turn OBailey and then they'll be a Bailey soch banks rovery and then I thinksuchbanks will be the one to take the championship from Bailey, which I thinkwil happen in the few yea. I can't really see the to mean a thing going onfor much longer like. I don't really know why yeah I'd guess in the next couple weeks,like maybe there's a tag team with like lacy intome, naverse banks and Bailey,and something happens but yeah that storyline, I can't see it ending in anyother other way than banks. Turning on Bailey, which I look forward to N andATU Baing a commentator, did they had like an interview backstage shos beforethey went out and she did say that Bailey has been lik, not letting nothelping Sasha win matches and we it did. It did seem to get to Sashubir. ECAUSEBailey went out first and should have wait there for a bit. So I do see Sashabanks turning to get the championship of Bailey Yeah. So we were wrong inthat prediction. I'll be honest over the weekand. I was kind of thinkingabout our predictions and I did question that one and I even saidI' before they came out that I was like, I actually don't think to men all inthis, but yeah she's close, but the thing that put me off no championshipchange, hands which I was banking on o my predictions. So that really threw meoff. I guess, but but you don't need a title. Jah In a money in the bank orlike a Roa, rumble pay yeah. You don't really need title changes becauseeveryone just came for the maid event, Yeah Al Right. So next was brawn,stroman and Bray wie right. What yeah it was pretty, I know, is anotherI think another average match it was it wasn't the fane. This time wasactually just bray wine, but I think they will continue their rivalry, but tdefinitely, but I think this time it will be the fiend ves Ron Stroman,because I think bray white will be gone in the matches against Brod and thethene will come out because during that, when he lost who had they were likeflashing back to the fiend yeah. I thought this was just an average match between the twoof them. Nothing special. He came back as the black sheep halfway through thematch, but then he squashed it. Anyone after his question, I think I soe atear on Bray's cheek after the match. Like I did, that thing whewas crying Idid set was sold. I thought brawn was back like I thought, brawn and Braywere going to become an Joo. No, I did not. I didn't like. I was like s Wennynot and then, when they were hugging and stuff I was like you know. I WanaTelli NEU IE mon. I knew from the star he was just going Ta. He was pretendingto do and then he would have on knew. He was going to take the mask off andlike rip it or something and stop on it yeah. I definitely, as you said, though,I definitely do think this story line. Will progress. Yeah thirswill because yeah, as you said, it's kind of like Bray wites tried to bringBron back and, as he's failed, I think the Famel Yeah punishinng. Basically dowe get that prediction right yeah? We guess we gots Broen Bron, I think so,decent match, but nothing special yeah. Now drea macand tire verse, Sethrolans,Dru mackintia retained. I think we both predicted Dreu to win yeah. We did. Ipredicted yeah Ti Cris Goo match yeah. It was actually a good match, so it wasa bit of back and forth. I like dry because he doesn't he's not someone tothrow his finish way. His finisher actually here in the uses once andprobably every match, and it is knocks people out and it's like a goodfinisher because they showit to good finish obecause every time he does it.He wins the match and his resilient,...

...like he seth was doing like two finishes and hewas still kicking out at like one. So it shows like he's a force to berecking with yeah. It was really it was a really good match. I thought this storylines over, I think, SAR. Ithink the MESSA. I think I masiy storylones, coming to a close, becauseat the end they did have that handshake and I think in sets eyes, I think he'sgoing to become going back to being maybe a face instead of a heel yeah. Idon't know because I think drew showed set that he has honor, so they I don'tthink they will wrestle again. So I don't know who is in dream, acantisefuature, but I don't see it being seth rolland. I definitely think seth done for the title picture, but I'm not completely sold that the Mondaynightsize over N. I think it's coming to a close there yeah, I don't know, Ijust think the whole like buddy marphy thing. The last two weeks like I feellike that, has something to play out, because what would they do with BuddyMurphy? If this is like the last Yem, maybe maybe Odi, maybe Odis will face through macitie. We never knowyeah, so yeah thoe are all right match set,had a new teme song, which I'm pretty sure yeah I'm pretzy. Today Yeah it wasDavi tonight didn't really it was Ari. I prefer pait that's another thingwhich maybe suggest he's not going to change yeah. They just arted it becauseyeah iasout of one night but yeah. I definitely think Kivan Drem acatiesover yeah, they they're done annow. The true money in the banks do money in thebank simultaneously. We got both predictions wrong, but I don't thinkthat's really shock when you know who, on the men's will start with thewomen's well. Well just talk about them together, because I would well Ithought I, what a did you write the match? I thought it was. It was fun. Itwas it was, it was different, it was, it was obviously filmed prior. I thinkall I think all the other matches were live, but then I think they because Isaw in the Tok right corners of live. So I think they've filmed the first sixmatch six matches yeah six matches and I think they would have finished atdrew Macantis tethrons and then they just wourd ove llthey would have adddthe UM. I don't think the filmed footage like I think, they're taken like it might have been done a coupledays ago, but like it, would have maybe all been filmed in one go yeah, I don'tknow I feel like, but the obviously the money in the back, the money in thebank was the money. Mick was a life, but I do think maybe that the othermatches were live yeah, I'm not sure yeah. I predicted Ni jucks to win clish,follow by Shena Bas. I senavesla really wasn't in the picture was kin. It wasbetween ASCA, lacy and nion the end because they were the only three on the top of the ring at the end yeah. I thought it was. It was funthere was. There was food fire. There was like there was ther were doing uniquethings with the stuff around the headquarters to like they threw peopleoff the building yeah. It was ome peace, a resto peaceright, but yeah. I thought it was a bit of fun. I I was really disappointed with oscawinning becuause. I don't know. I thought I thought nijacks really had astrong story that I came up with Ni Jacks going for Bailey, not batly,Becky, linches, title Satqa, she's, never faced been in Ni Jackson, becky's talking about howshe's been every single girl in the Rostar. So I thought that was aninteresting issue came back just from injury. This past month, O I thoughtwas going really strong and then Aso on. So I don't really know what title she'sgoing to go for because she has faced she faced Becky at Um at Royal Rumbleand Becky beat Oscar,...

...so theyre kind of she might. She mightgo. She has to go for Becke, because Beckin doesn't really have anyone inHor sides yeah, because I feel like that. Bailey such a banks thing will goand lets som through, but she might e Tese saving that for a bit, so they illuse to MENA for another couple weeks then ask schol come challenge, but thenagain I think it's not like it's an organized match like she can just cashit in with Hims Yeah. I think I think I think Ni Jacks, I think well have a rivalrywith beckyl an Cheven, not winning their money in the bank. I thinkbecause I think Bailey is occupied. I think she'll still be having bee foodTomeina, but then finally sosials snap over this past month and then they'llhave a rivary at r matchup backlash and then I think itw'll be a NIG jacks,verse Becky at Bekiada backclash and then I think ASCAwill cash in against Beckiam back Yo will find or Beck on NI and she'llfinally lose her title after yea yeah, I think she' she'll lose it eventualyshe's. Had IT Fre, Reckin Shanoalso Bein it byahit might be a triuplethreat like also. I think it would be stupid if they just let Shane itdisappear into the background. After so yeah, but I think six ponse yeah, Ithink Nia Jacks, though well have the spotlight just coming back from Yeatranhaving all this Mahem with Defein Oly Perod, but I think Shana will also bein the pitch of a Bicki Mi, be a triple threat match yeah. I think Lacy Evanswill start going back into the pitch with Bailye coshetta little segment,which Shi was like I'm taking Bailey down, so there might be Tomena might goe in then lace. He might come into the picture for that one and then that yeah.So I think that will happen also. I reckon I reckon maybe not for both, but Idefinitely reckon one of the money in the banks, as she'll be held for a bitlonger yeah. I think it was last year I'm pretty shure. Both were Castin. Wewell Alam was cushing on the night, yeah baes Tah Ro lesand cashed in likea month later, yeah, I don't American one of them will be held bit longerthis year. Yeah, maybe I don't know it's hard to hold them back, though,because it's like everyone's like Oh, is ask o good, Cashin, tonon, yeah andthen onto the so askaon yeah yeah now in to the man's Odis one which this is.This is our ageous. I Ti not know. Well, we gass do with this. We I predictedAlice to black and he obviously got his goad he's dead. He got thrown off thebuilding, so I will not be seeing him. So I really King Corbin actually over thepast, like three days was one of the front runners and he almost won it andI was going to be, like sure, surely not and then Aj stales was wrestlinghimself like oh a yourselfs going to win and then Ajo stales grabbed it, but he fumbledit out of his hands and it landed in Odis's hands at the bottom of theladder and Odis won the match. See I don't I don't know he has to be, but Ican't see him as a tihet title. Oh, you know yeah yeah honestly and he likehe's an attacked, but I feel like maybe AJ styles will have a rivalry againstOtis and they might have a match for the money in the bank like contract,because he might argue that he he had the contract in he in his on actuallywithout it being attached to the like the rope, and so they might have a machfor that, an a stars might win it or Odis might become a singles titlechampion, which might be very weird or he might cash it in and be onunsuccessive, as soand say that today there I can al just be like a comedything where it just cashes it and get spashed and lose yeah. I think that's,U. I think, that's how I think that's highly possible. I think I think ascuswould definitely be successful, but I think Oh, this is might be just forcomedy Buch as bit money in the Mang...

...six. So if they wasted on cheap ga, butI think not sure about t yeah, but it was also, it was also a goodmatch. There was there wase some random things: Leke thot was thatas Jackson,freaking Ojus. Had that moment over, like the sandwich or something Oh yeah,and then there was there was some like call of fame is just strolling aroundthrough the head waters and then therew's the beef in the VINCICG manoffice, and then there was that Iaso therewas, the undertakear room, whereajs has got looked in thm to take a room yeah. I thought it was guy thoughtit was. It was entertaining to watch what did you think yeah? I actuallyreally enjoyed it, I'm much preferred it to the firefive fun fire Flight FunHouse match and the Graveyard Batcher Ressamania. If I'm honest people were saying it was like verychaotic, and it was a bit too much going on at once. Yeah there wasn'treally care. Now. I didn't I remember his realistically. If they had like aslow shot of Um the wrestling. It was dull because there's no space in acorridor and Yeahi got ta well, add thista upstairs and STFA. This startwhen the men were in the gym, fighting and the camera wis moving like a lot. Iwas like Oh thire's, going to be a lot of camera movies and very chaotic, butI think they figured it out during the match and itbecame quite easy to follow. I thought yeah thstuff was so funny when, likeDaniel Brien walked in as iffes like. Oh the boy he's like all right, lhat'show we ask a just like chillin. She just went in the elevator anddisappeared for like twenty minutes yeah, I that's yeah, I don't know andthen the whole Dana Brook thing Dana Brook was just like gag and the wholething yeah. She was just lykeit around Becaus, just like that art work andthen she like sleeped over the Jan Sus, just like this, the shit one yeah just so that's all the money in thebank matches. I actually quite enjoyed the paper FET yeah. It was good pay forview. Yeah just quickly. Just is a littleprediction for the future, so we can look back on it. Who Do you think the hackers I smackdown? No, I de Yeah, but I think,we'll find out shoul the they won't go on for twomonths with this Um givme, so thoy thou. I reckon now. This person will have a rivalry againstsone. Maybe DRU MAC can tipe because DREM mechatizs really no one towrestleright now, because I don't think hell, wristle southeroles, because Ithink that's roans was just a bit of far you can find him for now.So I think it will. The truth. Person will fight IRIC, an dre MacIntyrebecause he's the only one, that's not really. If it's, if the truth, pesontsae male he's the only one that's not really occupied, or if it's a female itgoold verse Becky. Well, he might not even like Gointo the title Pitcher hemuch Ber Yo character or something I've done. Some research and I've found somenames. People thrown out the main ones misstuff Ali Yeah. Thatwould make sense because he's his colors that he uses on his facemark andhand thing and apparently in like nxt, he was like a bit of a Harker orsomething at some stage, and then I also saw someone suggest the ICONICS,because they've kind of disappeared in the past few months and theyre a tagteam and a lot of the videos in the little vineat. It were about tag teams,so I think, would yeah that's also a good point. Also. I think it. My USOSis just another. No, I think a my stuff, Fali's deaf ireca, a it, makes my sensehe's not Christeco Sde, because when he were before he left he was in like thebig title pitchure. So it makes sense for him to come back and then maybereturn back to the big title Picher and I think he hasn't. Obviously he hasn'tbeen in the WWE for a while. So then bringing him back with this new gimmick,...

I think, makes a lot ofsense, yeah and yeah. He definitely makes the mostsense. I don't really care who it is as long as it's something interesting likeif it's someone who's just like absolutely met ton. The lower card,like ta lot of wasted time on those bloody videos each week, yeah so yeah, that's pretty much. It will throwit back to future future good. Looking roosters Hay,Amshin Campbell of June ttwo thousand and twenty, hopefully cron virus hasn't taken you but yeahstay safe, poys, OV! Take it away thanks at Campbell and Hamis you sexyroosters, you are looking my fine. I think we called ourselves s in theoffic as well todayke. So just a bit of love thrown around for ourselves. YouSAUCY ONE! So today we don't really have a Lookin Aricula to talk about sothere's an nxt takeover event called in your house. Think it's e, Jo ctuwantusto do with, because I was going to say it's probably to do with the fact thatit's streaming lot, everything is yeah. I guess in your house yet they're doingeasnn is the crowd back and don't think Tis. There's like a also thirty peopleand S, I all Sal University, which is where they record every nxt. So I guessit's like their own house, it's their home ground, there's like twenty peoplein New York, twenty to, like maybe thirty and there's a big classprotectir between the wrestlers in the films, so we'll just we'l just runthrough the match and they as teteets they're, just standing there, just likesocial distance, ings butstending, so we'l just quickly run through thosematches at the end of this, so that's occurring on Monday. Nextweek we got backlush which will have its own episode Alash to our backlashpredictions run through the matches. What we think will happen, what wethink the result resulting month will incur, but today we're just going to have ageneral chat about the great world of pro wrestling as the Great Dennis Ros looking atSouthetn Americans, say wrastling, so thisis Ip bee watching wrestling over the past month. I've been watchingactually two months, maybe en Threeso I've been watching since last year'sResamania and I'm going to try and watch up to this. Like the currentpoint and then just kick on because I was I was going to just watch fromafter this year's Russamania, but I felt like I didn't know any of thecharacters. Well enough and stuff. So ' I went back a year to try andunderstand why stuff had curred and stuff like that, and one thing that everyone says, but Ialso felt this as well. I find nxt is way better than runs back down so whichkind of a little jit bitter chat about whether you agree and if so, why so doyou think nxt is better than ruins back down? Anixt yeah, yeah, yeah, probs yeah,definitely nok oven that I don't know to PROMS to you death yeah! Well they.Why do you think? I think they have the the freedom to to be creative and do whatever theywant, whereas Wer inspectum and kind of put themselves into a box where it'slike a nicely produced wrestling TV show and there's not really any good matches andit's all just matches to boost up a up and coming superstar. Some like, forexample, like Shamos who's, just been doing bad matches, so he can be better, but nxt, there's Aland thechampions they don't onlly have a fight which is interesting. They only fightduring the UM other paper views. Well,...

I'm in Charlotte fights now, but Ithink that's bi weird. They shouldn't have done that buowhatever yeah. Well,I think they wanted to make nxt wanted become an ECW situation where it'sthree brands instead of two, which I think is a which is, I think, is thething now. I think it's not just rron spack anything. It's Rost mack down ana x tea. I think they made that clear with survivor series how they wontSurviva Series, for I think they they won survivor seriesthey like sweeped it like the girls one and the boys, one ther's Sumi seriesmatches, and I think that became clear. That anxchan is the brand and they alsogot on TV as opposed to just being on the Dovnetwork, which is a clear decision, will not a decision from dw but fromthe network that anx hes popular enough to have its owntime slot. On the Air Yeah for me originally, when I thought of this, Iwas like takeover the definitely better thanDodo you pay for Yous, but I'l. We sure about the weekly shows, but now you'veyou were just running talking through it and I, the nxt shows are definitelybetter. So what I think it is is especially raw not so much to mack downbut roar crams. So much into ther theyre like three hour times,aneverything, that's Oue, right days. History is s so long, but it's likethere's genuinely half the time like eight matches or something and do liketalk shows and it's like. We don't want to see miss in Morrison on a talk show like I don't give a cratand it's so much more predictable than nxt like you've, seen it all before really onRalway next toyou try and do new stuff for their storylines, like, as you justsaid, with the there's so much stuff where it's like misstv will havesomeone on or Alethe Blusse show we'll have someone on, and you just know it'sgoing to end in a little scrap the security guards or the rest. COME OUTSTOP THEM! Oh, let's Tark dismatch at the pay, perview yeah, yeas, jus, pret, lot more authenticallyrenc track own upredictale, whereis and exes still a bit predictable, but notas predictable yeah and also, I just think the rest. As you said, there's alot of matches, half the matches on Roin mackdown and just to get someoneover so just be sooning us to Rando winning in two minutes where nxt thatrarely happens. Only if it's like someone's, debut or theyre, coming backfrom injury or something yeah and just the wrestling in general onnxt is a lot better. Some of the moods they do theyrit's more exciting. It'smore exciting. As you say, it's not as old school yeah. So there's just so many reasons andthen, when it comes to the pay per views, I think they ave. they have it's anadvantage for Nex t, I have to say they only have four or five a year, which isan absolute advantage and they r having one each month in the Dova Wall, themainstream ww. They run out of ides yeah. So, like just call things like backlash, but th, it's just likematches yeah all like the Saudi radian pay per views like, let's be realthey'r, just shit where, where O it fe like it's like you only if you Rowinsmacktown Wer to be better, they would there as a Essal, Mani,rorumble survivor series summer, slam and like maybe maybe two more orsomething mammy ve, true and Elimination Chamber, but they spreadthose out like evenly and it just makes them so much more epic, and I think Idon't know that in the workings of the wrestling, but I think it allows themWhelli, just shuting. This is like this like because there's like three monthsin between takeovers, I'm sure like a month before takeover, they know what'sgoing to happen, so they can start...

...practicing that match like a monththere yeah, where, because in the doot, it's only like there's like a paperevery three weeks or something like I feel like they only Haan. I think Ifeel like we're, ring Specktun of getting lazy like I've. Seen lots ofmatches over the past few days and they've all ended up in Rollup pins,and then I was actually watching a www video and I was reading the commentsand someone was like. I swear N Narro Doys, just every match ends up in aroller in, and I was thinking about it literally every match awake ends in arollep pin yeah. It just doesn't really happen in nxteen than I think of yeah,and another thing I've noticed is like everyone says: Everyone wants like it'sa big thing in wrestling to be a wrestling champion. They always go. Oneabout Thay was brag out brock for never wrestling in the actual weekly shows and stuff. But I'll behonest. I actually disagree like. I think it makes it coollove when they don't wrestle as much like you've got people like sethrollinds who genuinely wrestles every singe, think ye wrestles every day, soit makes it when you see seth rollins on a pay per view. It's like well, thisisn't that cool, because I see it all the freaking time yeah, where someonelike Adam Col, he wrestles a lot, but it's not no any every week. YeaHe's! But the thing is they do it well he's not on it at wrestling every week,but his presence is always there. Yeahi'MN Nout cutting promos he'll comeout and help the undersputed Erar in other matches like you'll cominginterrupt another match, so I think the main stars on the Dodo Rossto wrestle too much yeah because it takes away they drain their energy yeah.I takes away theyve been smart with backlash, there's edge but edge versusRandy Arden, and those two haven't wrestled allmonth: they've just been making primars against each other yeah, which I thinkis a smarter idea, but like it's smart, but let's be real. Those to performerslike I think it would be elite if they did that for all the wrestlers, butlike Betasteron Edge, randon, an edge ther older, so they're, probably not ma.Just like a high flying high paced match yeah they're going to or stamin abasematch. I, like that promotion style, as you were saying, yeah just shit talkso final verdict: anxt is better yeah, I', say yeah all right. So next little question Iwanted to talk about so our brother bit of a boomer when it comes to life likeold music. Like actually sportsman. That's not I mean that is Bima, but I alsonothat's O. I like old, musical lot yeah but yeah yea Yo people who, likehave historical bias. You like things gone, which is Fairo like Al Mostpeople do to be fair. I like od music, though I agree with them, but yeah helacks. He prefers things that were in the past, Andi Yeah so and he's he'smade. This mentione he's mentioned this a couple times recently and he saidthat the WW superstars nowadays are just they're just like a myths.Basically like they're, not household names, they're, not iconic, as opposedto people from the s and the two thousand that we grew up with a agre.Do you agree yeah? Why do you think that is well? I thinkthere's so many superstars nowadays that it's it's hard to keep up andthere's so many shuperstoes wwheis wanting to push and there's so manycontenders for so many titles, and it's just so much so many names to cram inthat it's hard for the wwe community to keep up and we it's. We just keep track of honestlythe champions and the contendens its hard to keep chuck of like Oh. What wasthat person's name in the tag team championships, whereas...

...later days they? It would be a massiverivalry like this huge rivalry between these two between superstart for overlike half half a year, an even more and they would produce- and I thinkwrestling has become the same thing. Whereas backthen it was new and fresh. So it was exciting for people to watch. So thosepeople who were wrestling, they became household names Cuze, they were mextrivagant and they were good in the art form and I think they also had fresh ideas. Fresh characters like JohnSona, that was fresh. The Rock that was fresh, like fash as fack stone call,was fresh Barg, Rickie steambo was fresh bark, Hokoganantre, the giant,and nowadays it's just like I'm just another wrestmer who wearsspeedos and just kicks the shit out of people yeah like there's nothingspecial about the people these days yeah. It is true, there's like alimited amount of characters. You can have really, but I disagree with it to a certain extent.I think it's impossible to say this right now, because we could look go ten years down thetrack and we could say this again: We could be like od, the people of woThousandan. Thirty do not compare to the people of two thousand nine S, twothousand and ten, two thousand and twenty. So I think it's really hard tocall in the moment, but I reckon there's not there's, probablynot as many people who will be iconic just because I don't think wrestlingisis popular in mainstream culture as it wasn't like the late Nis eally twozand,like everyone knows his stone cold, as everyone knows who the rock is.Everyone knows who John Sener is. Everyone knows Ho, the indetaker iswhere I don't think everyone knows is seth. Rolans is no. No one knows whoroan rings, thes, no one nows, he aet Hollers, no oneise, yeah, Shart, flarsyeah. I agree, but in terms of actual in the wrestling fandom, I think thatit will be just the same as iconic. Maybe less numbers be go down inhistory is like famous people, but I can't really see how seth rollins Kevin Olwens Nobo Daniel Brian Danier Brawn, willdefinitely Roman rains like I think, they're all going down on the samelevel as like a Betista, an edge, a ray mysteria even like I reckon because thething is, I feel like Thorese, I generation as just on like a lowerpredestal than those CIEAH. Potentially I, U think it's hard to say in themoment it could be true, like seth rollands has literally have everythingin his doubt of you. CREA handed to him like at the side of these career. Heworks with T E ww authority. So that's why he always got all these titalopportunities, so it wasn't exciting for him. BUWOSTER was with evolutionand Randyo ordenwas with ever evolution, so you can argue that as well yeah, butthat was 't a WW authority. Well, it was just like a squat likethey kind of just on, because theyhad like Rik flar and we don't really haveany like underdoog stories. So it's like Ra Mysterio, he comes in number.Two Royal Rumble makes it all the way through wins than wins at wrestle,Meslke not as exciting as it used to be yeah, because our eyes are just like our eyes ar just used to what wesein yeah. So I definitely think there would be less iconic wrestles, but Idefinitely think some are going down as famous as those guys, but I also think there's been agenerational switch in the last five years, where t e New Generations Cominand now most of the big guys actually really young, like Seth Rollans, Reins Adam Col like velveteen dreams liketwenty three, like these guys have another ten fifteen years in them, so they could have...

...like in fifteen years we could belaughing at the fact that this was even a conversation where, like in twothousand and fifteen, I feel like it was still wrestlers of the pastgeneration like just hanging on like John Sener and stuff. So yeah. I don'tknow it's something. We'll just have to basically wait and see almost it Yeaho.No, but I definitely think it's a valid point, but I also definitely think ithas something to do with just ww not being as popular and mainstream Coltl,and I think they don't. As I was talking, they really broosted. Two SUP starts UPTOTOV. Thismessoves rivalry, whereas like Seth Ronse, says they just throw randomcompetitivs at him, so it doesn't make him a household name. It doesn't makethe matchess he's interesting. It doesn't make the matches he'sinmemorable. So then you remember and- and then you tell your friend- are thismatch was amazing. Then they go watchit than they telephrond in the Chanct, annews. So then he becomes a household name most of the matches. Herein aregood but like they're, not as good as matches in the part later days, yeah and also another thing that has to beconsidered. I think nowadays, with the Internet and like Globalization Lik, Ican watch Japan wrestling. I like, I feel, like therewill, be icons notJustin. Dowe, like I know like I'm, not the biggest wrestling fan and Iactually know a fyow guys from New Japan wrestling. I know if you guys inalllate wrestling and then there's also like there's. Obviously people who'vecome from those place to wwand vice versus, so I feel like well, probably get to know there'll be more iconicpeople from not just Odebutet all over the world. Yes, pretty much. All I've got on thatWehe same it's Basticall, one, we're just GOINNA, have to wait and see. Now, I'm just going to. Let's justquickly run through this sorry about this episodes, don't go my structure tois just a casual chat about wrestling yeah. I don't know so we're just I'm just going to runthrough what we have gotten store for us on Monday at nxt takeover. I thinkit's Monday wer annext takeovers on Oh yeah. Now this UNE's on Sunday. Ithink they might be on Saturday when it's the same. They usually but yeah. This one's stand alone, so I guessmaybe they're trying to move away and then after it. I just want to dosomething with you that they do on the Maddi Johns podcast, it's random, I'mnot prepared for it, but I just want to see an take the shot so ' got trat o Talkin iyo Harry onCross. I'll, be honest, don't know who carry on crosses as I appeatingato yetasas, just watching a top ten an x vidieo before and he was just like ahigh flying. I don't know itwas like a high finekind of it was like a Steth rollands kind of structure of a guy, yeah honestly Di know who you Don Camso.I don't get Tomarso Jampa, like everyone, frigging frosts him and whenhe came back from injury last year, like I watched it the other day,because I'm up to about that time, I thought it as going to be this insanewrestler, like Adam Col level, but he like, Idon't really get what the fuss is there to be: hones Yosday Yeah Next CharlotteFlavis re, replives e Shri, a next to win championship they'll be late. YeahI on Charlotte, flect Lusa Yeah. I wanted to lose it, but I know if she'lllose it so quickly, yeah they gave it twid they woeldn't. Lether lose it that that's Gean Thay'll be good, though theyr asubally, like threeof the best wrestles female wrestlers on yeah. I think the combined roster asAmai an ringo rear. I want to win, but I wouldn't be mad of I on yeah and then next got fimbel. ThisDamin priest Abe will be a really good batch. Yeah bothum good wrestlers, butI can't say I really care whois flying...

...match. Yeah. Then we go Adam colversus velveteendream for the nxt championship. If velveteen dream loses, he can no longerchallenge for the nxt championship. While COL is still champion, somuch, I'm very excited for this match.I think I think Weltang dream so honestly think calls such a good rest.Adam Co has haid the championship. Is Time Change I think it he would changeit because they won't let a vessel like velveteen dream, not be able tochallenge for the NXC championship yeah, while Adam College champion. I justdon't think that happened. I think you will have to Adam Cal Wallason yeahactually agree with you. There IRCAN Velvetan Time Adam calls had it forlockOl. So he just, I think, Noverteen just came back to Te aswell yeah recentlyyeah, so hhe'll get him yeah. I love velvetan dream so much hischaracter, so cool so different.
