FGB Radio – WWE Year In Review

WWE year in review

How about a little FGB Radio before the fat man comes tonight?

Big D (@EmperorBigD) and I get together to recap the year in wrestling (let’s be fair, it’s 95% about WWE) and look ahead at what we expect to happen.

Here’s what we discuss in our WWE year in review:

– How the year started greatly and felt cool for a few weeks
– The Rock vs. Punk and what was good and bad about it
– The Road to WrestleMania 29
– The bad booking that doomed the show
– The Summer of Daniel Bryan
– The squashing of Daniel Bryan
– The death of WWE PPV and the network
– Small shout outs to Chikara, FIP, ROH, and Premier

FGB Radio – SummerSlam Recap

SummerSlam is in the books and it was a really fantastic show.

Joining me on the show is Big D from this very website as well as Superfriends Universe. We dig deep on the show going from the beginning to the end.

We talk about the rise of Daniel Bryan, why we enjoyed the finish, and D pays tremendous respect to John Cena.

We talk about Brock Lesnar’s brilliance and that while John Cena is WWE’s most valuable talent, CM Punk is the most valuable in ring competitor.

Give it a listen and let us know what you think.
