This week, we invaded the 94WIP studios on Market St. in Center City for a huge two-hour plus show. Eric "Turtle" Golden, who's a fantastic producer at the radio station and a big wrestling fan, joined us as we talked about Payback, the AJ Styles/Roman Reigns angle and how it's playing out with the additions of Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson and The Usos to the mix. Is Reigns better because of it? How bad does Styles really want the WWE World Heavyweight Championship?
Also, WWE made a slew of releases on Friday afternoon. None of them were earth-shattering, but they got rid of Damien Sandow, Alex Riley, Zeb Colter, and King Barrett just to name a few. Barrett's contract was already expiring, so that was no surprise. Will there be more releases in the future?
Then, we had our first official Straight Shooters WWE draft. Vaughn had the first overall pick, yours truly had the second, and "Turtle" had the third. We made it a snake draft and we went 20 rounds picking the best of the best in WWE.
We're opening up voting for who you think has the best roster. Of course, there's no doubt that I do, but I figured I'd throw the other guys a bone here and see if they can barely compete with my roster.
