ATR # 87: Paige Gets Hacked, WrestleMania Card Solidifies

After a week off due to technical difficulties Floyd and Dave discuss the solidifying WrestleMania card; an interesting week of wrestling television including Mick Foley finally having enough on Raw, AJ Styles assaulting Shane McMahon on SmackDown, Bobby Roode retaining the NXT Championship against Kassius Ohno on NXT, Austin Aries earning a Cruiserweight Title shot at WrestleMania on 205 Live, and Impact is slowly getting better; our slightly late review of ROH’s excellent 15th Anniversary PPV; the latest inductee into the Floyd Johnson Jr. Around the Ring Hall of Fame; and our thoughts on the hacking and leaking of Paige’s private photos and videos.

ATR # 85: Braun Strowman Goes Lucha…Sort Of

This week Floyd and Dave have an in-depth discussion on ’90s hip hop and r&b. Okay fine, that didn’t happen but we did discuss the week in wrestling tackling the events in WWE on Raw and SmackDown including Braun Strownman doing some flippy shit (well not really but darn close) in an excellent big-man match against The Big Show, AJ Styles being the most over guy on the planet, and comparing the state of the company’s women’s divisions; a mediocre week in NXT highlight by the return of Kassius Ohno; a few notes on TNA; a funny promo exchange between Adam Cole and Kenny Omega at a recent NJWP/ROH Honor Rising show; out Top 5 180s (i.e. wrestlers that we either once hated or loved and now love or hate); and the latest inductee into the Floyd Johnson Jr.’s Around the Ring Hall of Fame: “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes.
