Dave Meltzer and Garrett Gonzales are back with Wrestling Observer Radio.
We first talk about the Hiroshi Tanahashi and Shingo Takagi match from the New Beginning in Nagoya. We then talk about Jon Moxley showing up on NJPW Strong on Friday to challenge KENTA.
We talk about some of the Royal Rumble wild card possibilities based on betting odds including folks like Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Ronda Rousey, and Becky Lynch. We also talk about Mia Yim's statement that she tested positive for COVID-19.
We look at the Wednesday night ratings, Dave clarifies one question about streaming PPVs on Peacock, and then finally go over Amanda Huber's guest appearance on the AEW Unrestricted podcast.
This episode was recorded before news came out that Moxley and KENTA will face-off at the New Beginning USA show.
