SUNDAY NEWS UPDATE

Image placeholder title

Bryan and I will be back tonight covering the news of the past several days and talking Smackdown, Rampage, ratings and other news. We've got two new shows up this weekend, both very different.  The first was with Garrett Gonzalez and Jon Moxley talking his new book "Mox" that comes out on Tuesday.  This was a very unique interview that went a million directions and was very entertaining. The other is a show with Wade Keller which is a must of you saw "Dark Side of the Ring" about the Vince McMahon steroid trial, as we talk what was left out of the show that was important, a lot of thoughts on the trial, the trial fixer (and there was one), Jerry McDevitt, Phil Mushnick and the other characters as well as why the case never should have gone to trial.

Not much in the Google searches this week. Only two entries. UFC yesterday was No. 6 with 500,000 views, which is low if you consider it a PPV (it had two title bouts and was a PPV i mos of the world) but every high if you consider it an ESPN+ show, which it was in the U.S., but it was a PPV caliber main card.
