On a new Josh Nason’s Punch-Out, the run toward the end of my pro wrestling year in review series continues with a stop in November.
Joining me for the first time is special guest Scott Edwards of Fightful, Voices of Wrestling and a slew of other outlets.
We lead off with the surprise return of CM Punk to WWE at the end of Survivor Series, giving our thoughts on his first month back and our hopes & hesitations for the future. Of course, Survivor Series also saw the return of Randy Orton. We look back at the highlights for both that PLE and Crown Jewel from Saudi Arabia.
The company also scored a nice financial win with a new TV rights deal for NXT and The CW.
AEW continued their post-Punk run with Full Gear from Los Angeles, a show that saw the announcement of Will Ospreay signing a Khantract and a controversial show-long storyline between MJF, Adam Cole and Jay White.
There was also the announcement of the Continental Classic and the madman known as Bryan Danielson as the first entrant despite being fresh off orbital bone surgery.
Scott and I also talk about the month in Impact, Japan, and the rest of the wrestling world.
I promise this is unlike any other year-end series you’ll hear or read, so catch up on the rest of the series in the archive and my MMA year in review series as well.
