On this week's Monday Night RAW and SmackDown Live, we saw a sort of tonal shift. It wasn't quite Attitude Era level stuff [and it probably never will be again, and that's a good thing], but there were definitely some segments on each show that made the audience go, "Wow."
And it's not always a good thing. "Wow," doesn't always have a positive connotation. So this week, Nick Piccone and Vaughn Johnson discussed their thoughts on the programming becoming a bit edgier this week, and if the future holds more of this type of content, especially as we get closer to SmackDown Live's move to FOX.
The guys also preview the most grueling professional wrestling tournament anywhere, the New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Climax, which kicks off Saturday night, July 6.
