This week Justin LaBar rants about the colossal waste of time that was Lavar Ball's appearance on Raw, the mistake of giving his family a live mic on live TV, and how that is the new worst segment on Raw, ever.

Justin also comments on Roman Reigns calling out Samoa Joe for not being Samoan, Carmella grabbing the briefcase for herself, the upcoming Punjabi Prison Match between Jinder Mahal and Randy Orton, and a whole lot more.

    Justin then talks with Ticket King's VP Drew Baydala about the low ticket sales for Smackdown despite the superior TV ratings, Mauro Renalo back calling NXT matches, "Glow" mania, Paige and Del Rio breaking up, the unauthorized Eva Marie interview, and more...

    Justin responds to tweets, sponsored by SDC Remodeling, this week solely on the topic of the Big Cass/Enzo split.

For the main event, Virgil is, for the second week in a row, comically a no-show. Justin gets live updates from executive producer Frank Murgia as they try to track down Virgil's whereabouts, checking where he could be (Olive Garden?) and where he's banned from. Justin then responds to the #AskVirgil questions.

He then speculates on who will be Roman Reigns' opponent for SummerSlam, the list of who could be against Reigns, and why most of them don't fit. Plus, lack of crowd reaction to Samoa Joe, Lana pulling off impressive moves in an evening dress, and a whole lot more.

This week Justin LaBar explains why Samoa Joe is the most realistic opponent for Brock Lesnar at Great Balls of Fire - Finn Balor is physically too small for Lesnar, Joe's prolonged match versus Seth Rollins on Raw indicates what to expect against Lesnar and more. Also, will Lana be a heel or face going forward? Plus, The Miz is great again, Bray Wyatt talks more than walks, Roman Reign has the "IT" factor, and the not-so-subtle imagery of the Great Balls of Fire logo...

    Justin talks with Ticket King's VP Drew Baydala about Samoa Joe vs. Seth Rollins, ticket availability for Summer Slam and much more.

    Justin responds to voicemails and tweets, sponsored by SDC Remodeling, covering a range of topics including the Raw women's match, the 10pm cutoff of Smackdown, who will win Money In The Bank, Jinder Mahal with the championship and more...

    Justin closes out the show with one of his often-requested behind-the-scenes wrestling stories - this time, Justin tells about his attempt at wrangling a hungover Kevin Nash before a show in Cleveland...
