This week Hal and Danielle are joined by Jacquis Neal from the Culture Kings podcast.

After months of build up, AEW and NXT are officially live in primetime on Wednesday Night on TNT and USA, respectively. Naturally, the two shows are going to be compared a lot but, more importantly, they’re going to be appreciated for the entertaining programs that they are. We do a bit of both, looking at the matches that we enjoyed, nitpicking the things that need work and explaining why Wednesday night may be the only night in wrestling we unabashedly look forward to.

Of course, WWE’s flagship shows also made headlines after the premier of Smackdown on FOX and Hell in a Cell on Sunday. Smackdown started with a lot of positives on the presentation front; but a lot of that promise was washed away by Kofi Kingston lose the WWE title to Brock Lesnar in seconds. As if that wasn’t enough, Seth Rollins retained the Universal Title against the Fiend after a convoluted finish to a chorus of boos. We take a look at the shortcomings of both shows (and not without pointing out the great parts of the shows as well).

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford, and Jacquis Neal.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

Jacquis Neal from the Culture Kings podcast joins the Nation of Conversation!

Crown Jewel was that rare show that managed to disappoint and frustrate just viewers of every stripe. Hulk Hogan made his return that many dreaded, but also felt inevitable. And Brock Lesnar defeated Braun Strowman to become a two-time Universal Champion.

Even as the build to Survivor Series begins, there’s a distinct lack of urgency in booking right now that hopefully gets filled soon.

But that’s not to say everything is doom and gloom in the land of WWE; Becky Lynch is on her way to being the most white-hot star in the company. Her promo skills have been remarkable and her matches have been great, including her victory this week over a debuting Nikki Cross. The panel will explain what’s making her work so effective right now.

The Beat-Down

The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin were two of the biggest stars in the history of the WWE. Their star power and fan interest culminated at and on the road to WrestleMania X-Seven. We’ll take a look at how the company built up to this match and why their final WrestleMania main-event confrontation signified the end of one the companies most storied times.

The Three Count

Jacquis put over CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar, which he considers Lesnar’s last great match
