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 May 2021, a month that saw AEW announce a network move, Double or Nothing, the infamous Chris Jericho cage fall at Blood & Guts, ZOMBIES, and more.

Helping me out is first-time guest Jesse Collings, a columnist for Voices of Wrestling and Wrestling Inc. and the co-host of the Gentlemen's Wrestling podcast.

A few of the topics we delve into:

  • AEW announces a '22 move to TBS and their new one-hour show: Rampage
  • A newsworthy AEW Double or Nothing that saw the coronation of Dr. Britt Baker
  • AEW debuts the Blood & Guts cage match which included the much-discussed cage fall by Chris Jericho (seen above)
  • Zombies invade WWE WrestleMania Backlash in the name of corporate sponsorship
  • Will Ospreay vacates the IWGP title due to injury
  • AEW and WWE announce returns to touring...and more.
