WOL: Raw and Smackdown TV deal details, CM Punk trial, more!


Wrestling Observer Live with Bryan Alvarez and Mike Sempervive is back today with tons to talk about!

First up is talk about a new report on how Fox courted WWE into buying the TV rights to SmackDown and how Raw might get an even bigger deal from NBC Universal than originally expected. There’s even talk of a potential weekly discussion show with the Fox deal. Bryan and Mike explains why it probably will be nothing like Talking Smack.

Next is talk on the ongoing CM Punk/Chris Amann lawsuit that has gone to trial. There’s also discussion on Daniel Bryan’s neverending feud with Big Cass, who was inserted into his match against Samoa Joe on yesterday’s SmackDown.

Also on the show is talk on how times have changed regarding the WWE deal, why booking from the 80s and 90s cant fly in 2018, why Carmella doesn’t wrestle on TV, Lana losing her accent and more! A fun show as always so check it out~!
