May 19, 2017

This week Justin LaBar speculates the real possibility of Jinder Mahal winning the title at Backlash. He also makes his predictions for the whole card at Backlash, and weighs in with his opinion on the pro wrestling style controversy.

    At 27:56, Justin talks by phone with former wrestler and current head trainer for Ohio Valley Wrestling Rip Rogers. Rip Rogers ripped apart the Indy circuits with his no-holds barred criticism of their style on Twitter - comments that got further attention after being retweeted and backed up by Randy Orton, kicking off the pro wrestling style controversy. Justin goes deep with Rip in an interview that is as entertaining as it is uncensored - and it's very uncensored.

For more on Rip's controversial tweets, Randy Orton's support and the responses from the Indy circuits, check out the article here:

    Justin closes out the show responding to tweets, simulcast on Facebook Live, sponsored by SDC Remodeling, and also teases a surprise guest for next week's show, one you do not want to miss...

May 10, 2017

   This week Justin LaBar points out WWE's half-assed approach to international TV, Kurt Angle dealing with a co-GM, the Dolph boost to Nakamura, the carny-fest of Del Rio vs. Paige's father, and more...

    Justin talks with Ticket King's VP Drew Baydala about the future of Roman Reigns - with Braun Strowman out for surgery, who can really contend with Reigns?

    Justin responds to tweets, simulcast on Facebook Live, sponsored by SDC Remodeling, covering a range of topics including Lana being a heel or face, the Cruiser Division problem, potential Kurt Angle opponents and more.

    Justin closes out the show with the Super Genius, Mark Madden, presented by Tootsie's Diner. Justin and Mark speculate on the believability of Finn vs Lesnar, why WCW failed, and a lot more.

May 3, 2017

This week Justin LaBar states his case on why he thinks Braun Strowman's longevity will come from being a babyface. He then gets into Kevin Owens finally acting like a heel, Naomi going on offense, his disinterest in TJ Perkins/TJP, X-PAC arrested for meth trafficking, and Billy Corgan - yes, Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan - has purchased the rights to NWA...

Justin then talks with his friend and fellow podcaster JD from NY. Their separate takes don't always come together, but always makes good conversation, and this time they discuss the YouTube ad revenue pull back, Braun being the next man above other men, "Great Balls of Fire" possibly being Vince McMahon's private joke on the media, and much more.

Justin closes the show by responding to tweets, simulcast on Facebook Live, sponsored by SDC Remodeling. He gets into his remarks from last week about Lana's new promos, and female WWE fans not reacting the way to his remarks as expected, getting more pissed off in the process...
