Wrestling Observer Radio with Dave Meltzer and myself, guest co-host Garrett Gonzales, is back.
We kick off the episode with a discussion on WWE possibly counter programming AEW's weekly TV show with NXT. We talk about what it says about what Vince McMahon thinks of them as competition. We then talk about CM Punk being at Starrcast.
We then discuss Eric Bischoff's role and how it's different, as well as The Undertaker being off SummerSlam.
Plus, we talk about nights five and six of the G1 and preview the next two shows. We discuss Bellator possibly running Japan at the end of the year, UFC's show on Saturday, and end the episode with more wrestling news and notes.
