MTR Network

Back to talk the week of wrestling that was, it can feel like the drama outside the ring can out do the drama inside it. That is, unless you missed the end of Smackdown Live this week. Rich and I talk about Randy Orton's disgusting act, and all the rest of the news from the TNA Impact Wrestling hemorrhaging talent to Fastlane predictions. Plus, we got to be right about a prediction from last week!

Topics:

  • TNA Impact losing it's biggest talents.
  • Congrats to Beth Phoenix for the Hall of Fame!
  • Congrats to us for calling it!
  • Jack Swagger, good luck in your future endeavors.
  • NXT Tag teams get ready for Orlando.
  • The NXT Women's division problem.
  • Main event resurgence in NXT?
  • Talking me into Miz/Maryse vs. John/Nikki.
  • That closing segment tho.
  • Fastlane predictions.

Kriss & Dpalm have mixed feelings about this episode. Overall, its a pretty good episode with a lot of great moments (Harry hating HR, Harry trying to sabotage Jesse & Wally's relationship, Gipsy & Cisco, Barry considering that he might have to kill Grodd, etc). But it falls flat because the end is kind of anti-climatic. While we appreciate The Flash taking chances, it seems that we've approached the limits of what they can do on the CW. 

We also talk about the new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 trailer, WB/DC still promoting everything but Wonder Woman, predictions on what Wonder Woman does financially and Dpalm responds to writer Tom King's ranked list of the best fighters in the Bat-Family (and in doing so, we commit to another Character Corner).

Oh and the Grodd issue that Kriss & Dpalm are talking about at the beginning is Flash Vol 2 #178

He's the best there is at what he does and what he does isn't very nice. Our massive Character Corner on the X-Man named Wolverine. Despite becoming overused in the Marvel universe, there are actually a lot of good Wolverine stories out there. A lot of the old stuff also holds up pretty well. Some of our favorite writers have also done short runs with Wolverine since there is a massive amount of content out there. We cover so much in this we made a decision that we will come back to do a second part that covers the enemies Logan has racked up over the years.

The NBA Trade deadline has come and gone and left me underwhelmed. We brought back Mike to break down the sleepy trade deadline, Ole Miss going full Ole Miss and more. Plus, we update our over/under predictions from episode 6, and celebrate cool collective nouns.

Legends of Tomorrow is back this week with a fun episode that explains what happened to the JSA and why they disappeared after a mission. There's a lot to like in this episode but its marred by Ray being stupid. We're going to need to start seeing some maturing and growth of Ray (and Professor Stein).

On Arrow its very simple: Thea Queen is right. Kriss stans for Thea and isn't shy about it. The rest of the episode is also pretty solid as well. Oh and Dpalm has some thoughts about the news of a Nightwing live action film.

Phenom, Kriss & Petty review Jordan Peele's directorial debut, Get Out. This is a film we've been waiting to see since it was announced. Peele tackles the African-American experience by using the micro-aggressions,  stereotypes and the attack on our bodies that we suffer from "well-meaning" white people. Yes, it's that good.
