Wrestling Observer Radio with Dave Meltzer and myself, guest co-host Garrett Gonzales, is back.
We open up the show talking about the interviews that Dave did with Ric Flair and Becky Lynch that were posted earlier today. We talk about Bruce Prichard replacing Eric Bischoff as executive director of Smackdown Live. We discuss the Mike Bennett situation. We mention the "big" trade that happened today between the two WWE brands that was announced on the new WWE Backstage show. And then Dave breaks down the Raw ratings.
We preview week three of the Wednesday Night War and go over the cards to both shows. We look at the NJPW Power Struggle card and talk a little bit about the rumor coming out of Japan.
