    This week Justin LaBar reviews Great Balls of Fire - particularly the bloody Ambulance Match between Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman. Braun's the real deal, and could he be turning baby face? Also, will Reigns or Strowman face Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam? Justin also comments on why you don't blink with Brock Lesnar, the John Cena/Rusev Flag Match simply did not matter, and Austin Aries has departed the WWE.

    Justin then talks with Ticket King's VP Drew Baydala about his take on Great Balls of Fire, possible future venues for SummerSlam - Las Vegas? - and AJ Styles takes the title at an untelevised house show at Madison Square Garden.

    Justin closes the show answering tweets, presented by SDC Remodeling, on a number of topics, including how soon will we see Matt Hardy be Broken and whether Brock Lesnar will retire or renew at the end of his current contract...
