JNPO: Pro wrestling year in review - March 2021


As always, this is a free show. Just click the red button below to listen.

My first-ever pro wrestling year in review series on Josh Nason's Punch-Out continues with a look at March 2021, a month that saw a technical dud that marred the end of AEW Revolution, the announcement that led to the end of the Wednesday Night War, the build to a two-night WrestleMania with actual fans in attendance and more.

Helping me out is first-time guest, longtime podcaster on this very website, future top rapper and the DragonKing himself: Karl Stern of When It Was Cool.

A few of the topics we delve into:

  • NXT announcing a move to Tuesdays for after WrestleMania
  • WWE banning thigh slaps when throwing kicks
  • The build to WWE WrestleMania in Tampa with actual fans
  • The technical disaster that was the end of the exploding barbed wire deathmatch at AEW Revolution
  • The debut of Christian at AEW Revolution
  • Impact announcing they were moving to Thursdays
  • The build to the title vs. title match at Impact Rebellion
  • The disappointing reveal of the IWGP Heavyweight title
  • ROH's 19th Anniversary show...and more.
