The road to WWE’s second biggest show of the year is finally coming to an end! This weekend NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4 and SummerSlam will take place live at the Barclays Center. Hal, Danielle and Lindsey will look ahead to the biggest things happening ; that includes the Miz vs. Daniel Bryan, the next installment of Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa and (hopefully) the final installment of Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns.

Kris Wolf joins the Nation of Conversation! She’s a wrestler who got her start at the Japanese promotion Stardom after she left her job as an English teacher. Since then, she’s gone completely independent and is in the middle of touring all over the world to perform in the ring and meet fans. She talks to the team all about her unique promos, what it’s like being best friends with Kairi Sane and why she believes in living a full life beyond just wrestling.

Kris Wolf has merchandise available on What a Maneuver and can be supported on Patreon.

She’s also got a match coming up this Saturday, August 18th, at FSW in Las Vegas!

This week Mike Quackenbush joins the Hal, Danielle and Mike in the Nation of Conversation! He’s one of the founders of the independent wrestling promotion Chikara, which he says is, “the Marvel Cinematic Universe realized as a pro wrestling company.” The organization has gained a following for its original approach to stories and hosting the largest tournament in pro-wrestling today.

Quackenbush is also a semi-retired wrestler who’s had a hand in developing some stars in WWE, including Cesaro, Ruby Riott, Mandy Rose and Drew Gulak. He’ll explain what goes into teaching wrestling and what it was like to spend a week as a coach at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

Plus, he’ll talk about why there’s so much disappointment among fans with the WWE’s current product, who he thinks are the greatest wrestlers of all-time and why he believes wrestling is just starting to discover its power as a storytelling medium.

More of Mike Quackenbush’s work can be found in his recent book “7 Keys to Becoming a Better Performer: A Book for Fellow Pro-Wrestlers.”
