Then we interview the new ROW Tag Team champs, “The New Heavenly Bodies” Dustin and Justin Corino! We also intended to talk about the #hwrRoadTrip to Austin for NWA Inspire Pro, but we spent so much time on it, that it will be in it’s own special edition episode!

This week TNA held it’s ground and WWE improved with it’s “Season Premiere” episode of RAW. We examined both Impact and RAW fully. Although we enjoyed RAW, we did have some fun at the expense of the “Season Premiere” title of the show and the ongoing $9.99 campaign! After all that, we previewed NXT Takeover 2! We are very excited for this show and can’t wat to see it! Also, we mentioned some very exciting things going on in the Texas indie wrestling scene this month! Next week is #HWR100! So don’t forget to send in your questions and discussion topics!

On this week’s episode we we impressed yet again by a match TNA’s programming. However, there was still plenty for us to dislike! Same goes for WWE programming. Maybe even more so! The booking of Cena, the terrible plot-lines with the Brie/Nikki story and the desperate plea for mainstream media attention with the Michael Sam “invitation” all left bad tastes in our mouths! If you were frustrated with this week’s WWE product, you were not alone!

You know what, this week was a step down from last. But, you know what, both TNA and WWE put on shows that we less that expected. You know what, TNA still had a few bright spots. and you know what, we discussed those along with the low points. Then, you know what, during the WWE talk, Abel really got worked up over Cena’s booking from this week’s RAW. You know what, we also talked about Nikki’s use of the phrase “you know what!” You know what, this was a good episode!
