WOR: Matt Hughes, Raw ratings, SmackDown recap


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

We first talk about Matt Hughes and the story that his wife and brother filed restraining orders against him. We then talk about the Raw ratings, which were the best in sixth months. We discuss the possibility of WrestleMania 36 being in Tampa Bay and why they would go back to Florida so soon. We also look at the New Japan Anniversary show lineup.

We then recap Smackdown Live and talk about the main storylines, including Vince McMahon changing the Fast Lane main event to Daniel Bryan vs. Kevin Owens. Lastly, we talk 205 Live, ONE FC, how the newsletter (and Dave's hand) is coming along, as well as a followup on last night's AAF/XFL story.
