RAW reached a breaking point heading into December 2018, but did WWE give us the worst RAW ever during that time? And what of the “fresh start?” Should we buy into it? Will it be a long-term solution or just a short-term fix? Also, how can the view of cruiserweights be so different between RAW and SmackDown? And can NXT and NXT UK be a place for journeymen (and women)? All this plus Dijak’s ridiculous new name, the (sort of) return of Spanky, Mustafa Ali making waves, a discussion of TLC, and our favorite matches for the month of December, all on episode 118 of the Wrestling House Show!
Take a gamble on episode 117 of the Wrestling House Show in which we discuss betting on wrestling, AJ Styles’ crotch, The Man, rewarding people who concuss people, the greatness of NXT WarGames, the not-so-greatness of Survivor Series, Baron Corbin math, turkey punches, bad times in Liverpool, and the alternate reality of the Mixed Match Challenge! All this plus the best WWE/NXT/NXT UK matches for every week in November! Thank you for your time.
