Wrestling Observer Radio with Dave Meltzer and myself, guest co-host Garrett Gonzales, is back. 

We open up the show talking about Cain Velasquez showing up at the end of the first ever Smackdown on Fox and what it could mean for the near future. We dig into the entire show from the Rock showing up to Stone Cold Steve Austin not being on the show in front of the live audience all the way through the main event segment. We also talk about Edge's situation. 

Then, we dig deep in the ratings for both AEW Dynamite and NXT from Wednesday night. We hit on the rest of the wrestling news including the latest on Jeff Hardy, CM Punk, 205 Live, and ROH. We talk about the UFC 243 main event and card, Michael Bisping's eyeball, Bellator's upcoming shows in Hawaii, the Triple G fight this weekend, and the Erroll Spence vs Shawn Porter PPV number.
