Welcome one and all to yet another thrilling and exciting episode of The Iron Man Podcast! Join your hosts “The Real Deal” Simon Prior, The Fallen Angel and Old Man Joey as they chat about wrestling. The old, the new, the good, the bad. It’s all up for inspection.
What did this week’s episode cover? A lot and not much. It’s actually part 2 of our Summerslam special, covering a lot of past and present Summerslam goodness.
1. NXT Takeover: Brooklyn II
The second NXT Takeover event at Brooklyn, and the card was a belter. Not only did we see Shinsuke Nakamura take on Samoa Joe, but the in-ring television debut of the Glorious One, Bobby Roode. It’s worth watching for his ring intro alone.
2. WWE Summerslam 2016
We analyse this year’s Summerslam, going through each match and dishing out turnbuckle ratings left, right and centre. There was also a bit of news from after the event and that controversial ending.
3. WWE Summerslam 2003
The Fallen Angel runs through Summerslam 03. This event saw another Elimination Chamber match featuring injured Triple H, injured Kevin Nash, and Goldberg.
4. WWE Summerslam 2009
The Real Deal runs through Summerslam 09. The headline match saw World Heavyweight Champion Jeff Hardy take on CM Punk in a TLC match.
And then we ran out of time, funnily enough. It’s surprising how quickly the time goes when you’re having fun. It didn’t stop us spending a bit of extra time looking at the forthcoming WWE PPV’s for the rest of 2016. And, that we might watch an episode of Holy Foley for next week.
