The journey through season 9 begins with yet another first for TIA as we examine one of the most compelling matches in the short but remarkable history of WWE United Kingdom Championship matches.
Part promo for NXT UK, part mid card show-stealing performance, this contest between Pete Dunne and Tyler Bate was an instant classic in 2017. But has this matchup aged like a fine wine, or like a warm English-style Bitter (unless those also get better with age? In which case...the opposite)?

It's the final off-season episode before we fire up season 9 and Joaquin has donned his blazer, mustache and game-master cap as he hosts TIA's first ever edition of Pro Wrestling Jeopardy! It's just like normal Jeopardy!, only all the questions are about wrestling and consumption of croix is highly encouraged.
Joining Chuck and Frank as players this week is Muscle Temple alum Jimmy Chang! (@Jimmythechang)
On this week's episode, Joaquin, Frank and Chuck don their WTE thinking caps and get to the business of Talkin' Bout AEW. Your boys look back at the year that was 2020 for the upstart promotion and then speculate on what is yet to come.
Discussion points involve building new stars, the state of the women's division and what each title picture looks like in 2021.
