Welcome to the 25th episode of the Iron Man Wrestling Podcast. This week The Fallen Angel and The Real Deal take you on a merry romp through the world of professional wrestling. This week’s topics:
CM Punk in UFC, Wrestlemania 33, Paige and WWE, Ryback, Vince McMahon, WWE possibly buying TNA, Hulkamania running wild, and Real Deal’s “Glorious” t-shirt. It does exactly what it says on the tin.
2. WWE Backlash 2016
We review the first Smackdown-only PPV since the brand split earlier this week. Was it a success? Well there are less matches than a 2000-era WCW PPV event, so that’s a bonus. We chip in our thoughts and ratings for each match and the event overall.
3. Cruiserweight Classic Finale
The final episode of the Cruiserweight Classic comes under the spotlight. It’s been a great tournament all told, that’s all you really need to know. How will WWE incorporate the Cruiserweights into Monday Night Raw?
4. Main Event Jobber – Undertaker vs Hulk Hogan (Judgement Day 2002)
If you thought the Hulk Hogan/Triple H match from Backlash 2002 was bad, then it’s nothing compared to this one. An eleven minute “classic”. Ahem.
5. Coming Up
Hidden Gems, The Marine films (finally!), and yet more. The Fallen Angel finds a bundle of Sharpies. The WWE Network are launching an animated stories series, and er… Eva Marie. It’s a desperate attempt at clawing our way to the finish, and somehow find even more to talk about. Go figure.
