Episode Notes

Unfortunately, this week necessitates another look at Problematic Wrestling Corner. The biggest part of that is the #SpeakingOut campaign that’s outed a number of people’s awful actions in the business, including one person who’s appeared on this show multiple times. We’ll reflect accordingly.

Plus, we’ll look into which company will decide to take Tessa Blanchard despite her litany of accusations now that she’s been let go from Impact Wrestling and we’ll appropriately rage at WWE failing to protect its workers from COVID.

And once we’ve gotten that out of our system… we’ll talk about some of our favorite things that we saw from the shows this week. Don’t worry, there’s still joy to be had!
