WOR: WWE financials, Crown Jewel and the state of wrestling

Wrestling Observer Radio with Dave Meltzer and yours truly, guest co-host Garrett Gonzales, is back with a second Saturday/Sunday show featuring tons of wrestling discussion.

We take a look at the WWE Q3 financial report, the changing of the business, and what it means for the stock. We then talk about this Friday's WWE Crown Jewel and compare it to 1991 when the company pushed forward with the Persian Gulf War angle leading into WrestleMania with Hulk Hogan and Sgt. Slaughter.

We then discuss Dave's story in this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter about Roman Reigns' admission that his leukemia has returned and who is his successor as the top guy in WWE is if he doesn't come back soon.

We discuss Sunday's Evolution show and the over/under odds for star ratings, and what we have heard about the Jericho Cruise and some of the soon-to-be free agents on the trip. We finish up with Kevin Kay being out at Paramount Network, and the Demetrious Johnson and Ben Askren "trade" between UFC and ONE Fighting Championship.
