    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?

Jun 28, 2017

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.

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...
