This week’s episode is Part 1 of a Summerslam special. So with that in mind, join The Real Deal Simon Prior, The Fallen Angel and Old Man Joey as they discuss the following:
It’s a brief news section this week. Aside from Rhyno running for Republican candidate in Michigan, Broken Matt Hardy, and the Greatest Wrestlers of All Time, courtesy of Sports Illustrated.
2. Raw/Smackdown/NXT review
Ahead of Summerslam-specific content, we quickly run through this week’s WWE shows. And the surprising amount of pleasure to be taken from Bobby Roode’s new intro music. Glorious Domination, indeed.
3. Summerslam/NXT Brooklyn 2016 preview
We run through the card for both this year’s Summerslam event, and NXT Brooklyn 2. We predict winners and where we think the storylines are going to go.
4. Summerslam 1989
Old Man Joey provides a summary of the 1989 PPV. The main event that year was Hulk Hogan & Brutus The Barber Beefcake vs Macho Man Randy Savage and Zeus. Yeah.
5. Summerslam 1990
It’s The Real Deal’s turn to discuss the 1990 PPV. The main event was The Ultimate Warrior vs Ravishing Rick Rude in a steel cage match. At least it’s better than Hogan headlining again.
6. Summerslam 1996
Wrapping up our retro Summerslam reviews, Fallen Angel talks through the 1996 PPV, which saw Shawn Michaels take on Vader in the main event.
7. Fatally Flawed Way – Summerslam Edition
Fallen Angel and Old Man Joey have to pick a winner from Ludvig Borga, Zeus, Marc Mero and everybody’s favourite member of The Rockers (ahem), Marty Jannetty.
