Mid-Week 15 – Sealia Bloom on Diversity and the Sheetys | Weak Booking For Sasha Banks? | WWE Women Crying | New Day vs New Doom | Dar Wants Foxy | Renee Smacks Miz
Les Moore and Sealia Bloom chat this week on the last show before our Gala Event, the Sheety Awards Extravaganza!
Sealia has a few things to get off her chest with regards to gender equality in wrestling coverage, and diversity in the Sheetys.
Then, we talk about WWE Raw and SmackDown Live ratings being up this week, even though if you listen to the pro punditry, WWE creative is in a dip. Paul Fontaine gets a well-deserved shout out for his work on covering the ratings for F4Wonline.
We talk about the booking of Sasha Banks at Roadblock, including Dave Meltzer’s report that Vince McMahon thought it would be GREAT to deflate the crowd with two seconds left in the Ironman Match. We tackle the topic of crying in wrestling—is it too much? Travis Bryant and Wade Keller discuss on a recent Post-PPV Roundtable on PW Torch VIP. Then, Inspector Ringside predicts a New Day heel turn, and we offer out thoughts… including Les’ take that this should be the opportunity to create a NEW DOOM!
We also talk the Noam Dar, Alicia Fox and Cedric Alexander storyline, including Bryan Alvarez and Dave Meltzer trying to make sense of it and wondering (rightly) what in the world the outcome could be?! Plus, Renee smacking the Miz, and other “shoot”-like comments on Smackdown this week and more!
