This week we discuss a fairly blah episode of Raw highlighted by another great Kevin Owens/Dolph Ziggler match, R-Truth looking for Goldust in the men's room, the end of Team B.A.D., the New Day being the most over act on the card, and a dancing kid in a Bullet Club shirt; PJ Black and Rey Mysterio debut on Lucha Underground plus an excellent match between Johnny Mundo and Killshot and setting the stage for feuds between Mundo/Cage and Prince Puma/Pentagon Jr.; ROH with a great main event between reDRagon and Adam Cole/Jay Lethal, the next stop in the Roddy vs the World Tour, and BJ Whitmer smacking around Colby Corino; and NXT marching toward TakeOver: Dallas while Finn Balor injures his ankle and Bull Dempsey gets released.
This week on ATR we discuss the season two premiere of Lucha Underground, how the WWE tried to sign away the show's talent, and why it is still the best wrestling program on television; an episode of Raw that I honestly can't decide if I liked or not highlighted by a fantastic match between Dolph Ziggler and Kevin Owens, more progression in the Charlotte/Sasha Banks/Becky Lynch feud, AJ Styles taking on Chris Jericho, Bo Dallas out rapping Flo Rida in a surprisingly entertaining Social Outcasts segment, Vince McMahon finally is honest with the audience when he says that he "doesn't care" how they feel, and The Rock doing what The Rock does best only to get (almost) outshined by The New Day; NXT included a pretty bad match between Nia Jax and Liv Morgan, Jason Jordan & Chad Gable debuted their new team name--American Alpha--which I'm not sure if I like or not, the return of Alex Riley, and a triple threat main event with a clusterfuck of a as-yet-to-be-determined finish; and finally ROH laying the foundation for their 14th Anniversary PPV setting the main event as Jay Lethal defending the ROH World Title against Adam Cole and Kylie O'Reilly in a really good in ring promo segment thanks to Lethal and Cole, Cedric Alexander doing double duty in two matches, and a fun triple threat main event between Michael Elgin, Jay Briscoe, and Moose.
