It’s been a very newsworthy week. Les Thatcher and Vic Sosa talk Finn Balor’s injury, Brock Lesnar’s elbows, the Miz’s Talking Smack promo, and more on Wrestling Weekly!
We’ll start with a look back at a great training camp Les was a part of at the Monster Factory, where Les made his return to the ring… sort of. We’ll talk Finn Balor’s injury (21:16), risky moves and the amount of injuries that have occurred in the last 12 months during Seth Rollins matches.
We’ll debate blade vs elbows in looking at the ending to SummerSlam’s main event (32:21) and how Brock Lesnar’s biggest asset may also be modern WWE’s biggest weakness.
Why the Miz’s promo got so many people talking (40:49), and why one of us wasn’t all that impressed in the grand scheme of things. We’ll also cover the biggest issues Les sees on the independent scene (49:52), whether or not he spotted any potential prospects while watching the Olympics (56:25), and why didn’t Ric Flair or Ricky Steamboat have runs in the WWF (58:40) back when they were guys on the rise in the late 70s?
Thanks for listening and have a great weekend~!
