Wrestling Observer Radio with Dave Meltzer and myself, guest co-host Garrett Gonzales, is back.
It's a social distancing episode as Dave and I aren't recording from the same place for the first time in quite some time. We talk about the times we're living in right now and how it's affecting us. And then we dig into the latest WrestleMania news as well as what's going on with AEW's Blood & Guts.
We have a discussion on empty arena wrestling, including the differences in how WWE and AEW are doing it and the risks involved. We talk about Braun Strowman's social media situation, Smackdown, Dana White, and New Japan wanting to run Madison Square Garden every year as a big show.
Lastly, we talk about the first episode of the new season of Dark Side of the Ring, focusing on Chris Benoit.
