Wrestling Observer Live with Bryan Alvarez and Mike Sempervive is back today with tons to talk about!
We start off with the latest on CM Punk, who says he’s done with professional wrestling. There’s also news on SmackDown’s bad ratings. Despite the NBA playoffs not airing on either night, ratings still haven’t rebounded from last week’s bad numbers. Bryan and Mike make a bet on if SmackDown could beat Raw next week.
Dave Meltzer joins the show for his weekly segment to talk about UFC abandoning early weigh-ins, as well as NJPW Dominion this morning and where Rey Mysterio goes from here.
There’s also calls, texts and news on Kenny Omega’s future after January 2019, the potential of another Brock/Roman match, Johnny Saint as the WWE UK GM, a possible WWE UK television start date and more. A fun show as always so check it out~!
