After watching every single night of NJPW’s Best of Super Juniors, I was spoiled on the winner by NJPW World’s Twitter. I proceeded anyway to watch the BOSJ finals. We discussed the surprise returns, surprise heel turn, and Hiromu Takahashi’s place in the history of NJPW Juniors.
Main event: Best of the Super Jr. 29 FINAL Hiromu Takahashi (A Block winner) vs El Desperado (B Block winner)🔥🔥🔥
Singles record: 3-2-1 Desperado

The big news of the week was that CM Punk needs surgery five days after winning the AEW World Championship. Mel & I talk about how the interim World Champion news was handled. We also discuss potential interim champions. Punk’s injury spilled over into NJPW’s next big show, Dominion. It will also affect Forbidden Door and potentially other shows further down the line.
An extra match for Dominion!
June 12 in Osaka Jo Hall, an AEW Interim Championship Eliminator Series match!

I had the opportunity to ask Tony Khan a question on the AEW Media Call prior to Double or Nothing. I asked him a question related to women’s wrestling and a topic that we’ve discussed several times on the show.
