WOL Saturday: NXT TakeOver, Survivor Series, more


On this week's Saturday edition of Wrestling Observer Live, I preview a very busy weekend of wrestling with NXT TakeOver, both War Games matches, Balor vs.Riddle and more.

After that, we talk Survivor Series and what the return of DX, especially Triple H, to television might mean for NXT talent and the chance of actually scoring some victories on a WWE-branded PPV.

Friday night's SmackDown was a fun go-home show. We talk about highlights including Rhea Ripley, Shayna Baszler, Keith Lee, Seth Rollins, Otis, The New Day, Roode, Ziggler, and more.

I also take some calls from people with comments and reaction on both the Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho interviews up now at, the rise in popularity of joshi wrestling, thoughts on the expectations of the AEW women's division, AEW booking, ROH, NXT War Games, and the effect one match has on the card.
