ATR # 55: Rey Mysterio & PJ Black Debut on Lucha Underground; New Day Rules “Booty-ham”

This week we discuss a fairly blah episode of Raw highlighted by another great Kevin Owens/Dolph Ziggler match, R-Truth looking for Goldust in the men’s room, the end of Team B.A.D., the New Day being the most over act on the card, and a dancing kid in a Bullet Club shirt; PJ Black and Rey Mysterio debut on Lucha Underground plus an excellent match between Johnny Mundo and Killshot and setting the stage for feuds between Mundo/Cage and Prince Puma/Pentagon Jr.; ROH with a great main event between reDRagon and Adam Cole/Jay Lethal, the next stop in the Roddy vs the World Tour, and BJ Whitmer smacking around Colby Corino; and NXT marching toward TakeOver: Dallas while Finn Balor injures his ankle and Bull Dempsey gets released.

ATR # 54: The Return of Lucha Underground & The Rock

This week on ATR we discuss the season two premiere of Lucha Underground, how the WWE tried to sign away the show’s talent, and why it is still the best wrestling program on television; an episode of Raw that I honestly can’t decide if I liked or not highlighted by a fantastic match between Dolph Ziggler and Kevin Owens, more progression in the Charlotte/Sasha Banks/Becky Lynch feud, AJ Styles taking on Chris Jericho, Bo Dallas out rapping Flo Rida in a surprisingly entertaining Social Outcasts segment, Vince McMahon finally is honest with the audience when he says that he “doesn’t care” how they feel, and The Rock doing what The Rock does best only to get (almost) outshined by The New Day; NXT included a pretty bad match between Nia Jax and Liv Morgan, Jason Jordan & Chad Gable debuted their new team name–American Alpha–which I’m not sure if I like or not, the return of Alex Riley, and a triple threat main event with a clusterfuck of a as-yet-to-be-determined finish; and finally ROH laying the foundation for their 14th Anniversary PPV setting the main event as Jay Lethal defending the ROH World Title against Adam Cole and Kylie O’Reilly in a really good in ring promo segment thanks to Lethal and Cole, Cedric Alexander doing double duty in two matches, and a fun triple threat main event between Michael Elgin, Jay Briscoe, and Moose.

ATR # 53: Royal Rumble Reactions

This week we discuss last night’s shockingly excellent Royal Rumble PPV highlighted by the WWE debut of AJ Styles and return of Sami Zayn, an excellent women’s match with the return of Sasha Banks, a tremendous last man standing match with Kevin Owens and Dean Ambrose, and the New Day being the brilliant New Day; a fun episode of NXT highlighted by a good women’s tag match, the debut of Rich Swann, and a slightly disappointing Johnny Gargano/Samoa Joe match; and a great episode of ROH highlighted by a phenomenal triple threat Philly street fight with the Kingdom, reDRagon, and the Young Bucks.

This week Michael from WrestlingExpress.net joins us to discuss our thoughts on what should happen at the Royal Rumble; the possibilities for AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Karl Anderson, and Doc Gallows in WWE and/or NXT; an unbelievably boring Raw; Michael Bennett and Maria Kanellis’ baffling jump to TNA and what that mean for Adam Cole, Matt Taven, and the Kingdom in ROH; and an excellent battle royal in NXT for the # 1 contender for the NXT Women’s Title.
