Wrestling Observer Live with Bryan Alvarez and Mike Sempervive is back today with tons to talk about!
We first start things out with WWE’s rumored television deal, the stock price hitting record numbers, If Raw would be better if it focused on the General Manager and the Shinsuke Nakamura/AJ Styles feud on SmackDown.
Dave Meltzer joins the show to talk more on the WWE television deal rumors, the fate of SmackDown and where it may go, live vs. taped shows, Ariel Helwani going to ESPN, WWE in the UK and more.
The last segment of the show has talk on Bryan and Tom Lawlor wrestling the Rock and Roll Express this July for Black Label Pro, WWE television and why ratings don’t matter, why USA is so interested in keeping Raw, if they presented SmackDown as an “A” show would USA keep it (and why that isn’t the issue) and other calls and texts.
A fun show as always so check it out~!
