WrestleMania 22 hits the Big Time with this seminal (and somewhat problematic) WWE Women's Championship matchup between the Ace of 2006 WWE's women's division and her obsessed superfan. It's Trish Stratus taking on challenger Mickie James, co-starring a rowdy Chicago crowd and some cringeworthy commentary.
We suggest you check out options available on daily motion for the original, unabridged version of the match. On the WWE Network they've done some not-so-light editing, with the finish being significantly altered (though JR and King's commentary is present in nearly every version, so be forewarned).
Joining the gang this week in the virtual studio is returning guest and Muscle Temple member Leigh Luna!

On our first look in on DEFY Wrestling, we are performing a deep dive on an instant classic from 2017 featuring two of the hottest stars on the independent scene - it's Lio Rush battling Shane Strickland in a match to kick off the first ever 8XGP Tournament.
Besides being a fast-paced, high impact contest, what will likely stand out to first-time DEFY viewers is their unique presentation. Don't worry - you'll get used to it... maybe...
Joining in on all of the soft-science fun this week is our guest Cornell Reid!

Season 8, I knew you'd come!
In this current golden age of cinematic wrestling matches, TIA returns to the one that (arguably) created the genre. Filmed at the Hardy compound in Cameron, North Carolina, this brother versus brother conflict begins at a birthday party and ends near the property line!
Is this unique wrestling match filled with Broken Brilliance or is it simply a TNA Wrestling curio that has more in common with The Room than it does The Stadium Stampede?
Helping our hosts with their soft science project this episode is Lee Noble!
